What is the effective date for compliance with the Code of Corporate Governance 2012
(Code 2012)?

Bold/Italic/underlined option is the correct option.

Page 7

Ans.

All provisions, unless provided otherwise in the Code 2012, shall be effective at the date
of issuance.

78.

Is the Code 2012 applicable to modarabas and mutual funds?

Ans.

The Code 2012, being part of the listing regulations of the stock exchanges, is applicable
to all entities listed on the exchanges. The listed entities include not only companies but
also funds, such as modarabas and mutual funds. The requirements of the Code 2012 are,
therefore, applicable to modarabas and mutual funds. Furthermore, the requirements of
the Code 2012 pertaining to the Board of Directors are also applicable to management
companies of such funds, even if these companies are themselves not listed on the stock
exchanges.

79.

What are the implications if a listed company fails to nominate an independent director
on its board?

Ans.

Clause (i)(b) of the Code 2012 requires at least one independent director on the board.
This is now a mandatory provision and any non-compliance will be penalized under
listing regulations.

80.

If an independent director is serving as the chairman of the board at the time of issuance
of the Code 2012, can he also act as the chairman of the audit committee as required by
the Code 2012?

Ans.

Now the Code 2012 requires chairman of audit committee to be an independent director
who is not the chairman of board.

81.

Can the existing independent chairman also act as chairman of committee till the next
election of the board?

82.

It is mandatory as per Clause (xxiv) of the Code 2012 that the independent director is the
chairman of the audit committee. In order to fulfill this requirement, the board shall elect
another director as the chairman of the board.
What is the minimum amount of investment that would qualify a company to nominate a
director for appointment on the board of its investee company?

Ans.

No minimum amount of investment has been prescribed in the Code 2012.

83.

What is the difference between an executive and a non-executive director?

Ans.

Executive directors are the working, whole-time directors of a company. Non-executive


directors, on the other hand are those who are not from among the executive
management team and may or may not be independent. They are expected to lend an
outside viewpoint to the board of directors of a company and do not undertake to devote
their whole working time to the company. The guiding factor in distinguishing between
executive and non-executive directors of a company is the extent of their involvement in
managing the affairs of the company.
An executive director cannot be categorically defined as a "paid director" and a nonexecutive director as one who is "not a paid director". While the fact that a company may
not pay remuneration to its non-executive directors may facilitate their classification as
such, this rule cannot be applied uniformly to all companies since payment of any
remuneration to its directors is at the discretion of each company.

84.

Can a broker be appointed as a director of a listed company?

Ans.

The Code 2012 does not restrict election/nomination of brokers on the boards of listed
companies. However, the Ordinance states that no person shall be appointed as a director
of a listed company if he/she is engaged in the business of brokerage, or is a spouse of

Bold/Italic/underlined option is the correct option.

Page 8

such person or is a sponsor, director or officer of a corporate brokerage house. Therefore


a broker cannot be appointed as a director on the board of a listed company.
85.

Is professional indemnity insurance required for all board of directors?

Ans.

Professional indemnity insurance is not mandatory but is encouraged for independent


directors only.

86.

In a board of seven, what will be the composition as per the criteria laid down in the
Code 2012?

Ans.

If there are seven directors on the board of a listed company, the composition as per the
Code 2012 will be: one independent director, two executive directors (including the CEO)
and four non-executive directors.

87.
Ans.

Is the 'Statement of Ethics and Business Practices' still required to be signed by all
directors and employees of listed companies?
No, the Statement of Ethics and Business Practices is no longer required. However, a
Code of Conduct has to be prepared and communicated throughout the company apart
from placing it on the companys website.

88.

Who will evaluate the performance of the board and when?

Ans.

The board has to put in place a mechanism for its evaluation within two years of the
introduction of Code 2012.

89.

A director is serving on the board of 10 listed companies including three listed subsidiary
companies of a holding company. Is he compliant with the requirement of maximum
number of directorships of the revised code?

Ans.

Yes, maximum number of directorships of seven does not include listed subsidiaries of a
listed holding company.

90.

Does the board of directors of a listed company need to specify by a resolution the limits
of materiality for the policies to be presented to the board?

Ans.

The level of materiality should be determined by a resolution in the board meeting.

91.

Can the same person be appointed as the CFO and the CS of a listed company?

Ans.

The terms of reference of the two positions are distinct. It is, therefore, preferred that
separate persons handle the functions of the CFO and company secretary within a listed
company. The SECP Circular No 15 of July 8, 2003 also requires listed companies to have
full time employee designated to perform specific assignments of company secretary.

92.

Can the positions of company secretary and internal auditor be given to one person
within a listed company?

Ans.

No. The two positions carry minimal synergy and, therefore, should be performed by
separate persons.

93.

Can a full time employee (including the CFO and company secretary) of a listed company
hold a similar position in a group company?

Ans.

The Code 2012 does not restrict any full time employee in a listed company from working
in a similar position in a group company. However, appropriate steps should be taken by
the board of directors of the companies concerned to ensure that additional workload
would not affect the quality of work performed by such employee and no conflict of
interest would arise as a result of holding similar positions in two group companies.

Bold/Italic/underlined option is the correct option.

Page 9

94.

Should the disclosure in the directors' report regarding the number of board meetings
held during a year include the number of resolutions passed by the board by circulation?

Ans.

The number of resolutions passed by the board of directors of a listed company through
circulation should not be considered in determining the number of board meetings held
during a year for the purpose of the Code 2012.

95.

Does the Code 2012 require quarterly accounts to be filed by listed companies for each
quarter?

Ans.

The listed companies are required to comply with Section 245 of the Companies
Ordinance, 1984, and circulars of the SECP in determining the period for and the manner
in which the quarterly accounts should be published. The only requirement imposed by
the Code 2012 is that these quarterly accounts should be circulated along with the
directors' review on the affairs of the company for the relevant quarter.

96.

Who can perform limited scope review of the half-yearly accounts of listed companies?

Ans.

Only statutory auditors appointed to conduct the annual audit of a listed company can
carry out a limited scope review of the company's half-yearly accounts.

97.

Is there a standard format for Secretarial Compliance Certificate?

Ans.

The Secretarial Compliance Certificate to be filed by Company Secretary of a listed


company is annexed as Appendix A of the Code 2012.

98.

If the CEO and the CFO of a company are out of country/on leave, who will endorse the
financial statements in their place?

Ans.

In view of Sub-section (1) and (2) of Section 241 of the Companies Ordinance, 1984,
depending upon the company policy, if there is an alternative executive officiating in the
capacity of the CEO or the CFO, then he would be competent to endorse and present the
financial statements before the board of directors of the company.

99.

Should listed companies be updating their websites to disseminate financial information?

Ans.

Through its directives, the SECP from time to time directs the listed companies to
circulate their quarterly accounts in addition to half-yearly and annual accounts (as
required in the Companies Ordinance, 1984), and in case of difficulties in circulation of
the same to all shareholders, at least ensure publication of the same in two daily leading
newspapers (one English, one Urdu).

100.
Ans.

What is meant by closed period?


The closed period is a period during which no director, CEO or executive shall, directly
or indirectly, deal in the shares of the listed company in any manner.
The closed period shall start from the day when any document/statement, which forms
the basis of price sensitive information, is sent to the board of directors and terminate
after the information is made public. It is expected that such a restriction would help
minimize the risk of insider trading by key management/directors of the company.

101.

Ultra vires business means?

Ans.

In corporate law, ultra vires describes acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the
scope of powers granted by the corporation's objects clause, articles of incorporation or in
a clause in its Bylaws, in the laws authorizing a corporation's formation, or similar
founding documents. Acts attempted by a corporation that are beyond the scope of its
charter are void or voidable.
