CSAV is managed by its Board of Directors, which is made up of seven members elected by shareholders at the annual general meeting. Directors hold office for three years and may be re-elected indefinitely. The Board itself elects the Company’s Chairman from among its members to preside over the Board and shareholders’ meetings. Board compensation is set annually at the annual general meeting.
Board meetings may be ordinary or extraordinary. Ordinary meetings are held on dates set in advance by the Board itself. Extraordinary meetings are held when convened by the Chairman, on his own accord, or at the request of one or more directors.
The Board’s duties include:
- Appointing the Chief Executive Officer and senior executives and determining their powers.
- Approving the Company’s internal policies and enforcing laws, bylaws and regulations applicable to the Company.
- Convening shareholders’ meetings.
- Agreeing on interim dividends during the year charged to net income produced under the Board’s responsibility, provided that the Company has no accumulated losses.
The Board meets at least once a year with the external auditors, twice a year with the Legal Compliance Officer (“LCO”), quarterly with the Risk and Sustainability Committee and as needed with the Compliance Committee.
CSAV’s Directors’ Committee was formed in accordance with article 50 bis of the LSA. It has three members and holds monthly ordinary meetings. The duties of the Directors’ Committee are defined in the LSA and include, but are not limited to:
- Examining external audit reports and financial statements prior to presenting them to shareholders for their approval.
- Proposing to the Board of Directors names of external auditors and risk rating agencies to suggest at the shareholders’ meeting.
- Analyzing information on related party transactions.
- Examining remuneration systems and compensation plans for the Company’s managers, senior executives and employees.
- Preparing an annual management report, including its main recommendations to shareholders.
The Board delegates to the Directors’ Committee the duty of meeting at least three times a year with the external auditors and once a month with the LCO.
The Compliance Committee is comprised of two members of the Board of Directors, appointed by the Board itself, and the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.
The Compliance Committee’s duties are defined in its Regulations, and include, but are not limited to:
- Working with the LCO to define any necessary adjustments to the Crime Prevention Model (“CPM”), its accompanying documentation and/or any of CSAV’s internal policies related to compliance, and proposing these adjustments to the Board, in order to:
