JSC Olainfarm continues to improve corporate governance of the Group companies

JSC Olainfarm continues to improve the activities of its subsidiaries by gradually introducing the principles of corporate governance in all the companies of the Group, thus strengthening the quality of governance of the Olainfarm Group. The expansion of the management board of Silvanols Ltd. and Tonus Elast Ltd. is the first step Olainfarm is taking towards signing the agreement.

Improvements to the operations of the Group companies have also led to changes in the articles of association of several Olainfarm subsidiaries, laying down uniform operating and management principles for the Group companies.

“Olainfarm is committed to complying with the principles of corporate governance in providing quality control of operations and evaluation and management of the risks associated with operations. Olainfarm is committed to protecting the rights and interests of all its shareholders, and the quality of corporate governance in the Olainfarm Group is constantly being improved. Our goal is to gradually move towards a common practice across all companies within the Olainfarm Group in order to sign a Group agreement and thereby strengthen the quality of the operations,” emphasizes Milana Beleviča, Member of the Management Board of Olainfarm.

M. Beleviča also notes that the Group agreement provides an opportunity to improve the cooperation between parent and subsidiary companies and promotes transparency and efficiency of operations. “I highly appreciate the work done so far by all of the companies' teams within the Olainfarm Group. Our goal is to work together in order to further develop all companies within the Olainfarm Group according to the best practices in corporate governance today, ensuring sustainable growth and appropriate risk management,” says Milana Beleviča.
