Throughout its history, VimpelCom has been committed to delivering high standards of corporate governance – a commitment that remains firmly in place today.

VimpelCom is a public company listed on the NASDAQ exchange in the United States, complying with all of the applicable listing and disclosure requirements as a foreign private issuer. We are committed to transparency regarding material developments in the Company or affecting its securities, in line with accepted practices. Additionally, VimpelCom also complies with applicable reporting requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. These include the filing of an annual report on Form 20-F each year with audited consolidated financials.

VimpelCom’s corporate governance system gives its Supervisory Board authority for strategic decisions for the Group. The corporate governance “authority matrix” (contained in the Company bye-laws) requires that the Supervisory Board approve important matters, including, among others, the Group’s annual budget and audited accounts, organizational or reporting changes to the management structure, significant transactions, as well as changes to share capital or other significant actions.  

Shareholder approval policies and procedures are also in line with applicable requirements. All Supervisory Board members are elected by our shareholders through cumulative voting. Each voting share confers on its holder a number of votes equal to the number of directors to be elected. The holder may cast those votes for candidates in any proportion, including casting all votes for one candidate.
