Corporate governance

The Supervisory Board and the Executive Board are responsible for the company’s corporate governance structure and for compliance with that structure.

The main aspects of this corporate governance structure are explained every year in the annual report. The Supervisory Board and the Executive Board subscribe to the principles and best practice provisions of the Dutch corporate governance code (hereafter ‘the Code’). The full text of the Code can be found at www.commissiecorporategovernance.nl.

The Supervisory Board and the Executive Board are convinced that Royal BAM Group’s corporate governance is well organised. This corporate governance structure was discussed with the shareholders during the General Meeting on 21 April 2009. The company will always submit any substantial changes in the main features of the corporate governance structure to the General Meeting for discussion purposes.

Transparency

Royal BAM Group is keen to have an open and lively dialogue with existing and potential shareholders, analysts, media and other stakeholders.

In the interests of even greater transparency, Royal BAM Group reports results quarterly.

Interested parties will also be able to follow presentations to the press and analysts via audio links. Further details can be found on the Royal BAM Group website by clicking on the ‘investor’ button.

Investor relations contacts are reduced to a minimum during a three week period preceding each publication of results.

BAM shares are actively monitored by ten investment banks including one in the UK and one in Belgium. Their opinions are regularly polled and then published on this website.

Auditor

At the General Meeting of Shareholders on 22 April 2015 Ernst & Young Accountants LLP have been appointed as external auditor responsible for auditing the 2016, 2017 and 2018 financial statements.
