CHINAEDU’S DUTIES OF DIRECTORS
Under Cayman Islands law, our directors have a duty to act honestly, in good faith and with a view to our best interests. Our directors also have a duty to exercise the care, diligence and skills that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in comparable circumstances. In fulfilling their duty of care to us, our directors must ensure compliance with our memorandum and articles of association. We have the right to seek damages if a duty owed by our directors is breached.
The functions and powers of our board of directors include, among others:
- supervising and directing the business and affairs of our company in the interest, and for the benefit, of our shareholders in order to enhance shareholder value over the long term;
- exercising its business judgment to act in a manner which it reasonably believes to be in the best interests of our company and shareholders consistent with its fiduciary duties;
- reviewing and, where appropriate, approving our major strategic, financial and business objectives, plans and actions;
- establishing policies and principles for the selection, and possible succession planning, of directors, the chief executive officer and other senior management officers;
- convening shareholders’ annual general meetings and reporting its work to shareholders at such meetings;
- declaring dividends and distributions;
- appointing officers and determining the term of office of the officers;
- exercising the borrowing powers of our company and mortgaging the property of our company; and
- approving the transfer of shares in our company, including the registering of such shares in our share register.
