Boskalis jaarverslagen 2011

Dutch Corporate Governance Code

Since the introduction of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the ‘Code’) in 2004, the principles of proper corporate governance and best practice provisions set out in the Code have regularly been discussed at Supervisory Board meetings. The principal points of the Boskalis Corporate Governance policy can be found on pages 54 and 55 of the printed report.

In the opinion of the Supervisory Board, the provisions of the Code regarding the independence of the members of the Supervisory Board have been complied with. The Supervisory Board considers Mr. van Wiechen not to be independent in the sense of the Code.

Outside the presence of the board members, the Supervisory Board discussed the performance of the Board of Management and its individual members as well as reviewing the performance of the Supervisory Board and its individual members as compared against the Profile. This evaluation took place with the aid of a questionnaire as well as through collective and bilateral discussions of the Supervisory Board, the chairman of the Supervisory Board and the individual members of the Board of Management.

The Supervisory Board wishes to express its appreciation of the efforts shown by the Board of Management and all employees of the company and extends its compliments for the results achieved in 2011.
