Board Meetings

The Board meets on a quarterly basis, coinciding with the announcement of the Group’s quarterly and full year results. Additional Board meetings may be convened as and when necessary as deemed appropriate by the Board. A full-day Board Strategy offsite is held at least once in each financial year to review in depth the Group’s strategy going forward and to consider and approve the Group’s budget for the next financial year. To facilitate the Board’s decision-making process, StarHub’s Articles of Association allow Board meetings to be held via audio and video conferencing. The number of Board and Board Committee meetings held and the Board members’ meeting attendance during the financial year ended 31 December 2013 are tabulated below:
