Corporate Governance

La Doria’s Corporate Governance system is based on a set of regulations, conduct and processes formulated to guarantee efficient and transparent corporate governance and effective functioning of the corporate boards and control systems.

Although the Company is no longer listed on the Stock Exchange as of 27 May 2022, La Doria’s corporate governance system continues to be inspired by the principles of the Corporate Governance Code for Listed Companies to which the Company adhered from 1999 until the delisting and by national and international best practices.

The corporate governance model adopted by La Doria ensures fairness and transparency in management and information and is oriented towards the creation of sustainable value in a medium-long term horizon to the benefit of shareholders, taking into account the interests of other stakeholders relevant to the Company.

It is based on the traditional model and features the presence of the following corporate bodies:

  • The Shareholders’ Meeting, which expresses the wishes of the shareholders and deliberates in ordinary and extraordinary session on the matters reserved to it in accordance with law and the By-Laws.
  • The Board of Directors, vested with the broadest powers for the ordinary and extraordinary management of the Company, with the power to carry out all appropriate actions for the achievement of the corporate purposes, with the exclusion of those acts reserved – by law or by the By-Laws – to the Shareholders’ Meeting. The Board of Directors is the central body in the corporate governance system adopted by La Doria S.p.A. It is tasked with strategic and organisational management and with the effective functioning of the internal systems for control and the management of risks which may affect the Company’s operations. The Board of Directors is also responsible for promoting a strategy that integrates sustainability into business processes so as to create value over time for all stakeholders, in line with the goal of pursuing sustainable success.
  • The Board of Statutory Auditors has autonomous competences and powers and is tasked with overseeing compliance with law and the Company By-Laws, the principles of correct administration, the adequacy of the organisation, the administrative and accounting structure and its correct functioning.
