Whistleblowing

The Group is committed to the highest standard of integrity and accountability in the conduct of its businesses and operations. In striving to conduct its affairs in an ethical, responsible and transparent manner, the Group provides an avenue for all employees and stakeholders of the Group to disclose any improper conduct within the Group vide the implementation of the Group’s whistleblowing policy.

The whistleblowing policy establishes the Group’s position in encouraging employees and other stakeholders to raise genuine concerns about possible improprieties in matters relating to financial reporting, compliance and other malpractices or misconduct that may have occurred. The whistleblowing channels are established to help employees and other stakeholders raise concerns directly to either of the two designated Independent Directors who are members of the ARMC without fear of reprisals or retaliations.

The identity of the whistleblower is kept confidential and protection is accorded to the whistleblower against any form of reprisal or retribution. Any concerns raised will be investigated by the two Independent Directors and a report and update will be provided to the Board for review and ascertain further action(s) as appropriate.
