A sharp increase in the number of Independent Directors made it difficult for the Company to convene Board meetings as often as is needed. Therefore, the Company set up committees under the Board in accordance with relevant laws and delegated some of the Board authority to the committees, each of which is filled with Directors who can bring their expertise and experience to the assigned committee.
Board committees, established and operating in accordance with Article 28-2 of Articles of Incorporation, are as set forth:
The Company has the Compensation Committee which consists of Executive Directors and major Senior Vice Presidents though it is not a committee under the Board of Directors. Also, although the Company does not have a separate corporate governance Committee, the Board works to maintain a high level of corporate transparencies through the Independent Director Recommendation Committee and the Related Party Transactions Committee.
Each agenda approved by board committees is instantly notified to all Directors, and each Director may call for the convocation of Board meetings within two days from the notice. The Board of Directors may put the resolutions approved by the committees for voting at the Board meeting.
The Audit Committee is a committee under the Board of Directors that supervises and supports management in a way that may maximize corporate value through checks and balances. It was established in 2000 to replace the previous existing auditors.
The Audit Committee comprises of three Directors, more than two thirds of whom shall be Independent Directors. The committee members are appointed by resolution at the Board meeting.
Current members are all Independent Directors, and the head of the committee is Independent Director In-Ho Lee.
