The Company and its Directors, officers and employees are committed to maintaining the highest level of standards in the workplace and in their dealings with our investors, customers, suppliers and the communities in which we work.
To ensure that this happens, the Company maintains a code of business conduct (the “Code”) that applies to its Directors, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer and Controller, as well as to all of the other employees of the Company. This Code addresses, among other things: (i) honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships; (ii) compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules, and regulations; (iii) the prompt internal reporting of violations of the Code to an appropriate person or persons identified in the Code; (iv) accountability for adherence to the Code; and (v) full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that we file with or submit to the Commission and in other public communications we make. In the event we ever waive compliance by our Directors, our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer or Controller with the Code, we will disclose the waiver on our website.
As Chief Executive Officer of Airspan Networks, one of my most important duties is to help ensure that all our employees are operating in a safe, secure and ethical environment. The same must also be true for our partners. As key contributors to our success, your honest and open communication is critical in establishing and maintaining this environment. Airspan has installed an Internet-based reporting system called Ethicspoint® to foster this communication. This system allows employees and partners to report issues or concerns in a totally anonymous and confidential manner.
Ethicspoint® is somewhat like the old suggestion box, but provides much more, such as a follow-up and response mechanism, while at the same time protecting reporter anonymity. As a partner you are in a position to observe not only questionable or unethical behavior by our employees, but also see areas in need of change. If you would like to communicate your observations anonymously, please utilize Ethicspoint®.
By logging in on the Internet at www.ethicspoint.com, or clicking on the icon below, you can file a report, offer a suggestion or voice a concern. On line instructions are available as to how to use the system and if you have any questions please let us know, or contact Ethicspoint® at firstname.lastname@example.org.
