CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

The Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the ‘Code’), published by the Dutch Corporate Governance Committee on 9 December 2003, contains principles and best practice provisions for Management Boards, Supervisory Boards, shareholders and General Meetings of Shareholders, as well as for financial reporting, audits, disclosures, compliance and enforcement standards. The Code is based on internationally-recognized standards of good Corporate Governance. Although the Code applies only to Dutch companies listed on a stock exchange recognized by the Government, and therefore not to Dietsmann, the Management Board and Supervisory Board use the provisions of the Code as a reference for the development and implementation of good Corporate Governance for the Dietsmann Group.

Sets of regulations with regard to the division of duties and procedures were adopted in 2007 for the Supervisory Board, its Audit, and Selection, Appointment & Remuneration Committee and for the Management Board.
