Kaimeta S.A. (“Kaimeta”) will conduct its business honestly and ethically and abide by the applicable laws and regulations wherever we operate. We will constantly strive to improve the quality of our services, products, and operations and create a reputation for honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility, integrity, trust, and sound business judgment. No illegal or unethical conduct by officers, directors, employees, contractors, or affiliates is in the company’s best interest. Kaimeta will not compromise its principles for short-term gain. The ethical performance of this company is the sum of the ethics of the women and men who work together. Thus, we are all expected to adhere to high personal and professional integrity standards.

The company’s officers, directors, employees, and contractors must never permit their personal interests to conflict or appear to conflict with the interests of the company, its clients, or affiliates. Officers, directors, employees, and contractors must be careful to avoid representing Kaimeta in any transaction with others with whom there is any outside business affiliation or relationship. Officers, directors, employees, and contractors shall avoid using their company contacts to advance their private business or personal interests at the expense of the company, its clients, or affiliates.

No illegal bribes, kickbacks, or other similar remuneration or consideration shall be given to any person or organization to attract or influence business activity.

Officers, directors, employees, and contractors of Kaimeta will often come into contact with or have possession of proprietary, confidential, or business-sensitive information. They must take appropriate steps to ensure that such information is strictly safeguarded. Whether on behalf of our company or any of our clients or affiliates, this information could include strategic business plans, operating results, marketing strategies, customer lists, personnel records, upcoming acquisitions and divestitures, new investments, manufacturing costs, processes, and methods. Proprietary, confidential, and sensitive business information about this company, other companies, individuals, and entities should be treated with sensitivity and discretion and disseminated only on a need-to-know basis.

Misuse of material non-public information in connection with trading in the company’s securities can expose an individual to civil liability and penalties under the [ACT]. Under this Act, officers, directors, employees, and contractors possessing material information unavailable to the public are “insiders.” Spouses, friends, suppliers, brokers, and others outside the company who may have acquired the information directly or indirectly from a director, officer, employee, or contractor are also “insiders.” The Act prohibits insiders from trading in, or recommending the sale or purchase of, the company’s securities while such non-public information is regarded as “material” or if it is important enough to influence you or any other person in the purchase or sale of securities of any company with which we do business, which could be affected by the non-public information. The following guidelines should be followed in dealing with inside information:

      • Until the material non-public information has been publicly released by the company, an employee or contractor must not disclose it to anyone except those within the company whose positions require the use of the information.

      • Employees and contractors must not buy or sell the company’s securities when they have knowledge of material non-public information concerning the company until it has been disclosed to the public and the public has had sufficient time to absorb the information.

      • Employees and contractors shall not buy or sell securities of another corporation, the value of which is likely to be affected by an action by the company of which the employee is aware and which has not been publicly disclosed.

    Officers, directors, employees, and contractors will seek to report all information accurately and honestly and as otherwise required by applicable reporting requirements.

    Officers, directors, employees, and contractors will refrain from gathering competitor intelligence by illegitimate means and refrain from acting on the knowledge that has been gathered in such a manner. The officers, directors, and employees of Kaimeta will seek to avoid exaggerating or disparaging comparisons of the services and competence of their competitors.

    Officers, directors, employees, and contractors will obey all Equal Employment Opportunity laws and act with respect and responsibility towards others in all of their dealings.

    Officers, directors, employees, and contractors will remain personally balanced so that their personal lives will not interfere with their ability to deliver quality products or services to the company and its clients.

    Officers, directors, and employees agree to disclose unethical, dishonest, fraudulent, and illegal behavior or the violation of company policies and procedures directly to management.

    Violating this Code of Ethics can result in discipline, including possible termination and legal action. The degree of discipline relates partly to whether there was a voluntary disclosure of any ethical violation, whether the violator cooperated in any subsequent investigation and the legality of the jurisdiction in which the violation occurred.

    Live by the Code of the West

    Live each day with courage.

    Take pride in your work.

    Always finish what you start.

    Do what has to be done.

    Be tough, but fair.

    When you make a promise, keep it.

    Ride for the brand.

    Talk less and say more.

    Remember that some things aren’t for sale.

    Know where to draw the line.

    Remember that good ethics is good business!
