Following embezzlement allegations and earlier sustained efforts to restructure its board, CTBC actively responded to engagement from EOS.
The company has since enhanced board effectiveness not only through improved structures and policies but with a robust and ongoing director training programme and board evaluation process, elevating investor confidence.
Case studies are shown to demonstrate engagement, EOS does not make any investment recommendations and the information is not an offer to buy or sell securities.
