The German Corporate Governance Code is intended to promote public confidence (among investors, customers and employees) in the responsible management and supervision of German stock market-listed companies.
Ever since SUSS MicroTec went public, the company has set great store by corporate transparency. Our comprehensive investor relations work, through to the publication of a wide range of data and events, proves that these are not just empty words. Much of this work has now been included in the German Corporate Governance Code, which only goes to show that the code is nothing fundamentally new. That said, responsible and value-oriented corporate management has been systemized - and has gained in external transparency.
How seriously we take corporate governance, is plain to see. Aside from a few deviations, SUSS MicroTec fulfills the recommendations of the corporate governance catalog and, in addition, puts a large number of suggestions into practice. SUSS MicroTec AG is profoundly committed to the principles of the Corporate Governance Code in the sense of shareholder value with a view to enhancing public confidence in the company's management. We will continue to promote and encourage these principles of transparent corporate management.
