Significant event to be reported:
Change of compliance status with the Bucharest Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Code, following establishment of a Presidential and Nomination Committee of the Supervisory Board
The Supervisory Board of OMV Petrom SA approved on March 23, 2017 the set-up of a Presidential and Nomination Committee, composed of four members appointed by the Supervisory Board amongst its members, namely Rainer Seele (President), Manfred Leitner (Deputy President), Dan Manolescu (member – independent) and Joseph Bernhard Mark Mobius (member).
The main role of the Presidential and Nomination Committee is to be involved in the succession planning for the Executive Board, having full responsibility on the selection process of candidates for appointment in Executive Board. In addition, the Presidential and Nomination Committee has the right to make recommendations concerning the proposal of candidates for appointment in the Supervisory Board.
Consequently, OMV Petrom SA announces the change, effective starting March 23, 2017, of its compliance status with provision A.11 of the Bucharest Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Code, namely "The Board of Premium Tier companies should set up a nomination committee formed of non-executives, which will lead the process for Board appointments and make recommendations to the Board. The majority of the members of the nomination committee should be independent." from "non-compliance" to "partial compliance", given that currently the Nomination and Presidential Committee has only one independent member.
