Board of Directors

Members of the Board

The "Corporate Governance Practice Principles" of eMemory sets the composition of the Board of Directors to consider diversification, and formulates appropriate diversification policies based on the company’s operation, operation type and development needs, including but not limited to two major aspects: basic conditions and values (such as gender, age, nationality and culture, etc.) and professional knowledge and skills (such as law, accounting, industry, finance, marketing or technology). The Board of Directors must also have the knowledge, skills and literacy necessary to perform their duties. Currently, the 9 members of the Board have professional backgrounds in industry, academia and medicine, and each have expertise in management, leadership decision-making, industrial knowledge, academy, and finance. The proportion of Directors with employee status is 11%, and Independent Directors accounted for 33%. In addition, eMemory also emphasize gender distribution in the composition of Directors. The goal of female directors is at least one seat. Currently, we have two female Directors, accounting for 22%.

Communication between Independent Directors, Internal Audit Supervisors and Accountants

eMemory was re-elected at the shareholders meeting on June 9, 2015, and set up an Audit Committee to replace the supervisory authority. The Audit Committee is composed of all Independent Directors. eMemory’s Audit Supervisors regularly submit audit reports to Independent Directors for review. Independent Directors can then ask the Audit Supervisor to further explain the content of the report. In addition, the company’s Audit Supervisors must have full attendance at each Audit Committee meetings and Board of Directors meetings, and will report the internal control quarterly. This ensures the effectiveness and the tracking of the improvement items can be fully communicated face-to-face with the Audit Committee. When the Audit Committee reviews the quarterly financial statements, the company’s accountants will attend all the Audit Committee meetings and report on the reviewed items to ensure effective communication between the audit committee and the accountants.
