It is the Company’s policy to deal fairly with its customers, suppliers, competitors and employees. In the course of business dealings on behalf of the Company, no employee, officer or director should take advantage of another party through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of materials facts or any other unfair business practice.
“Insider trading,” or using “inside information” to purchase or sell securities (for example, stocks, bonds, options, etc.), is illegal. You cannot use information gained through the Company, before this information is known publicly, to buy or sell the securities of any company, including the Company. Nor can you give inside information to anyone else. In summary, our policy prohibits you from using or disclosing material, non-public information that you may acquire during the course of your employment with the Company or your service as a director of the Company .
Examples of material information are:
We are committed to delivering accurate and reliable information to the media, financial analysts, investors, brokers, and other members of the public. All public disclosures, including forecasts, press releases, speeches, and other communications, will be honest, accurate, timely, and representative of the facts. To ensure consistent, accurate delivery of Company information, employees, officers and directors are not authorized to answer questions from the news media, securities analysts, investors, or other members of the public. When approached for information, you must record the name of the person making the inquiry and immediately notify the Director–Marketing and Business Relations.
Accurate business records are relied upon by our employees, customers, tenants, suppliers, subcontractors, shareholders and by various government agencies. Therefore, our books, records and accounts (whether computerized, paper or other) must fully and accurately reflect our business transactions. These include financial statements, accounting records, time sheets, vouchers, bills, invoices, expense reports, payroll and benefits records, performance evaluations, and other essential Company data. Financial, accounting and related records must be entered in reasonable detail, in accordance with approved accounting practices. No false or misleading entries or failure to make required entries will be permitted for any reason.
Applicable laws of every jurisdiction in which the Company operates must be followed, including environmental, health and safety laws. Each employee, officer and director is charged with the responsibility of acquiring sufficient knowledge of the laws relating to his or her position with the Company and particular duties in order to recognize potential dangers and to know when to seek legal advice. In any instance where the law is ambiguous or difficult to interpret, the matter should be reported to the Company’s management who, in turn, will seek legal advice from the Company’s legal counsel as appropriate.
