Circio ASA (the “Company” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) considers good corporate governance to be a prerequisite for value creation, trustworthiness and for access to capital.
In order to secure strong and sustainable corporate governance, it is important that the Group ensures good and healthy business practices, reliable financial reporting and an environment of compliance with legislation and regulations.
The Norwegian Corporate Governance Board (NCGB or NUES) issues “The Norwegian Code of Practice for Corporate Governance” (the “Code of Practice”), most recently revised 14 October 2021, for companies listed on Oslo Stock Exchange and Oslo Axess. The Code of Practice is available at www.nues.no. The Code of Practice is based on a “comply or explain principle” whereby listed companies must comply with the Code of Practice or explain why they have chosen an alternative approach. How the Company has adapted to this Code of Practice is described in the Company’s Corporate Governance Policy. Each chapter represents the 15 topics in the Code of Practice. It starts with the recommendations, explains how the policy is followed up by the Company, and finally concludes with any deviations from the Code of Practice.
