Dutch Corporate Governance Code
Since the introduction of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the ‘Code’) in 2004, the principles of proper corporate governance and best practice provisions set out in the Code have regularly been discussed at Supervisory Board meetings. The principal points of the Boskalis Corporate Governance policy can be found on pages 54 and 55 of this annual report.
In the opinion of the Supervisory Board, the provisions of the Code regarding the independence of the members of the Supervisory Board have been complied with. The Supervisory Board considers Mr. van Wiechen not to be independent in the light of the Code.
Outside the presence of the board members, the Supervisory Board discussed the performance of the Board of Management and its individual members. It also discussed the performance of the Supervisory Board, the chairman of the Supervisory Board, the three committees and the individual members of the Supervisory Board as compared to the profile. This evaluation took place with the aid of a questionnaire as well as through collective and bilateral discussions between the members of the Supervisory Board, the chairman of the Supervisory Board and the individual members of the Board of Management.
The Supervisory Board wishes to thank the Board of Management and all the company’s employees for their great efforts shown in 2013 and the good cooperation between all parts of the company. The Board extends its compliments for the good results achieved in 2013.
