Board Charter

Our Board Charter has been serving as a guide for excellence in corporate governance since it was first adopted in January 2013. It compiled the terms of references of our Board and Board Committees, practices, principles and codes into a primary source of reference for the Board on our governance practices and Board policies and guidelines.

Over time, our Board Charter has been reviewed and updated based on the best corporate practices, professional guidelines and standards, rules and regulation and the law as and when the change occurred in order to maintain its relevance to current tenet. Throughout these transformation, our Board endeavours to preserve the best practices to uphold the highest standard of governance in the Company.

The Board Charter was last reviewed in February 2018, to reflect the relevant amendments of the rules and guidelines. Further changes are expected in 2018, following the proposed adoption of the Company’s new Constitution in place of the existing Memorandum and Articles of Association, which will be presented at the forthcoming 33rd Annual General Meeting of the Company.

Conflict Management

TM Board recognises the importance of addressing conflicts within the Board sensibly, fairly and efficiently within the Company, irrespective of the parties involved. The Chairman and Senior Independent Director (SID) have a tacit role to act as the intermediary to resolve any issue or sensitive matter that arises between members of the Board. In instances of conflict or issues between Board members and employees involving unethical conduct of any member of the Board, TM has established a grievance procedure whereby aggrieved employees may escalate complaints against the Board member via a formal channel through the SID and/or the Company Secretary.

The SID and/or Company Secretary will evaluate and, if required, stream the complaint to the NRC Chairman for consultation to decide on the next course of action. If the complaint is substantiated and warrants further investigation, an independent ad hoc Board Ethics Committee will be established to review and investigate the complaint and recommend the next course of action to the NRC. Ultimately, TM Board will decide on the most appropriate action to be taken against the Director.
