As part of an ongoing commitment to our shareholders, Primary's Board of Directors is dedicated to creating and maintaining high standards of corporate governance. This is key component to consistently delivering shareholder value. As a result, Primary's Board works within an accountable system that includes corporate governance policies and practices and risk management processes. These are designed to promote and strengthen Primary Health Care's responsible management and corporate code of conduct.
Furthermore Primary's Corporate Governance Statement outlines the main features of our governance framework reporting against the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (3rd edition) ("ASXCGC Recommendations") as published by the ASX Corporate Governance Council ("Council"). This Corporate Governance Statement summarises Primary's compliance with the ASXCGC Recommendations. Where Primary's Board considers that a Council recommendation is not appropriate to its particular circumstances, this Corporate Governance Statement will explain why it has not adopted the recommendation.
As at September 2018.
