TomTom is committed to being transparent and accountable in the way we do business. Our corporate governance structure supports and contributes to fulfilling this commitment to all our stakeholders. We monitor our corporate governance structure continuously, to ensure compliance with Dutch legislation, the Dutch Corporate Governance Code (the Code), the company's Articles of Association, applicable securities laws, and the rules and regulations of NYSE Euronext Amsterdam, complemented by several internal policies and procedures.

In this section, TomTom addresses its overall corporate governance structure and compliance with the best practice provisions of the Code. Occasional deviations from the Code are explained and information is provided on the reasons for doing so.

Furthermore, any substantial changes in the corporate governance structure of TomTom and its compliance with the Code will be explained to the shareholders at a General Meeting.
