Cirrus Logic is committed to sound principles of corporate governance. Our policies help ensure that our company is managed with integrity, in the best interests of our stakeholders, including our stockholders, customers, suppliers, employees and the communities in which we operate.
Our Governance Guidelines address matters such as composition and size of the Board, director qualifications, independence of directors, director responsibilities, frequency of Board meetings and the Board’s access to members of management and outside experts.
The Board has the following three standing committees:
The Audit Committee, which assists the Board in oversight of the quality and integrity of our accounting, auditing and financial reporting practices and the audits of financial statements.
The Governance Committee, which reviews and advises on Board organization, membership and function; advises on committee structure and membership; considers and recommends candidates for election to director positions; and assists the Board in matters relating to governance and succession.
The Compensation Committee, which is comprised solely of outside (non-employee) directors and assists the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities to oversee our compensation, stock-based compensation and other benefit plans and development of its management personnel.
Our Board of Directors has updated and affirmed the charters of each of the Board Committees. These charters, along with the Code of Conduct and the Governance Guidelines, form the foundation for the governance of Cirrus Logic.
