Change of compliance status with the Bucharest Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Code, following the approval of the new membership of the Audit Committee

Following the approval by the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of OMV Petrom SA, on April 27, 2021, of the members of the Supervisory Board for a mandate of 4 years starting April 28, 2021, the Supervisory Board approved today the new membership of the committees to the Supervisory Board.

The Audit Committee includes members who have adequate qualifications relevant to the functions and responsibilities of the Audit Committee, while some of them also have expertise in the financial and accounting fields. Moreover, in the current composition of the Audit Committee, the majority of the members are independent.


Consequently, OMV Petrom SA announces the change, effective starting April 28, 2021, of its compliance status with provision B.1 of the Bucharest Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Code, from “partial-compliant” to “compliant”.
