TSMC advocates and acts upon the principles of operational transparency and respect for shareholder rights. We believe that one basis for successful corporate governance is a sound and effective Board of Directors. In line with this principle, the TSMC Board delegates various responsibilities and authority to two Board Committees, Audit Committee and Compensation Committee. Each Committee has a written charter approved by the Board. Each Committee’s chairperson regularly reports to the Board on the activities and actions of the relevant committee. The Audit Committee and Compensation Committee consist solely of independent directors.
