In accordance with Brazilian Corporation Law, the Audit Board is a corporate body that is independent from the management and external auditors. The Audit Board may function on a permanent or temporary basis, in this latter case functioning during a specific fiscal year when installed at the request of shareholders representing at least 2% of the shares with voting rights, with each period of its functioning terminating at the first annual shareholders‘ meeting held after its installation.
The main responsibilities of the Audit Board are to audit the activities of the management, review the company’s financial statements and report their findings to shareholders. Brazilian Corporation Law requires members of the Audit Board to receive compensation of at minimum 10% of the average annual compensation of the Company’s officers. Brazilian Corporation Law also requires the Audit Board to be composed of at least three and at most five members, as well as their respective alternate members.
The Bylaws of EZTEC provide for an Audit Board installed on a temporary basis, elected exclusively at the request of the Company‘s shareholders assembled in a shareholders‘ meeting. EZTEC‘s Audit Board is currently installed.
The compensation of the members of the audit commitee is determined at the annual shareholders´ meeting at which they were elected.
