Notices concerning Corporate Governance

The MCH Group adheres to the provisions of relevance to corporate governance in the valid legislation, in the directives issued by the SIX Swiss Exchange and in the rules of conduct contained in the Swiss Code of Best Practice. The company's basic fundaments — namely its Statutes and Regulations and also its information and control instruments – include all the essential principles to ensure that the management, supervision and transparency of the company are in accordance with good corporate governance.

The MCH Group differs on one key point from many other companies quoted on the SIX Swiss Exchange: Under the terms of its Statutes, the listed holding company MCH Group Ltd. is a joint stock company with the participation of public sector entities as per Art. 762 of the Swiss Code of Obligations. This means inter alia that the Cantons of Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and Zurich, and also the City of Zurich, have the right to appoint delegates to the Board of Directors.
