The enhancement of corporate governance standards is vital towards the achievement of the objectives of ethical behavior, transparency, accountability and sustainability for ACME Holdings Berhad (“ACME” or “the Company”) and its subsidiaries (“the Group” or “ACME Group” or “ACME Group”). Accordingly, this Board Charter (“Charter”) is established with the aim of enshrining the concepts of good governance as promulgated in the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance 2017 (“MCCG”).
The Charter serves as a reference point for Board activities and should not be construed as a blueprint for Board operations. It is aimed to provide guidance for the Board and Management vis a vis the role of the Board and its Committees, the requirements of the Directors in carrying out their stewardship role and in discharging their duties towards the Company as well as the Board’s present practices.
Just as each organisation has its own corporate culture, the dynamics of each Board is unique. The dynamics shift as the composition of the Board changes, and the Directors of the Company should always be open to new opportunities and ready to confront new challenges brought about by change.
This Charter is to promote high standards of corporate governance and is designed to provide guidance and clarity for Directors and management with regard to the role of the Board and its committees, the requirements of Directors in carrying out their role and in discharging their duties towards the company as well as the Board’s operating practices.
This Charter does not overrule or pre-empt the statutory requirements of Directors as enshrined in Act, the Income Tax Act 1967 and other relevant statutes, including the conduct of the Board as stipulated in the Constitution of the Company. To the extent of any conflict between the terms of this Charter and a Constitution, that Constitution prevails.
