The statutory auditors are elected by the General Meeting for a period of one year in each case following a proposal made by the Board of Directors. The Audit Committee monitors the external auditing company to ensure that it performs its work independently and in accordance with Swiss legislation and the Swiss auditing standards. The statutory auditors submit written and verbal reports to the Audit Committee at least once a year on the subjects of audit planning and the scope of the audit, accounting, financial reporting, the internal control system and other auditing related assignments. In the reporting year, the statutory auditors attended three Audit Committee meetings.
