Corporate governance

Basil Read recognises the value of good corporate governance as recommended in the King III Code of Governance Principles (King III). The board of directors is committed to ensuring Basil Read complies with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, the Companies Act 71 of 2008, as amended (Companies Act), as well as all other codes, regulations and legislation that may apply to the company. As part of our objective to continuously improve corporate governance, we are currently completing the Institute of Directors’ gap analysis and feedback will be provided to shareholders in due course.

The board, with the assistance of various sub-committees and the company secretarial team, has reviewed the application of the King III principles. The findings of this process are reflected in the King III Register below as well as in the Company’s 2013 Integrated Annual Report.
