The main philosophy of business followed by the sponsors of International Industries Limited for the last 75 years has been to create value for all stakeholders through fair and sound business practices, which translates into policies approved by the Board and implemented throughout the Company to enhance the economic value of all stakeholders of the organization.

Our governance strategy is to ensure that the Company follows the direction defined by its core values, current regulatory framework, and global best practices. Our approach towards corporate governance ensures ethical behavior, transparency, and accountability in all that we do, while striving to attain a fair return for our shareholders.


The Board of Directors has, throughout the year 2022-23, complied with the Companies Act, 2017, Listed Companies (Code of Corporate Governance) Regulation, 2019, Rule Book of the Pakistan Stock Exchange Limited, and the Corporate Financial Reporting Framework of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).

The directors confirm that the following has been complied with:

a) The financial statements have been prepared which fairly represent the state of affairs of the Company, the result of its operations, cash flows, and changes in equity.

b) Proper books of accounts of the Company have been maintained.

c) Appropriate accounting policies have been consistently applied in the preparation of financial statements and accounting estimates are based on reasonable and prudent business judgment.

e) The system of internal control is sound in design and has been effectively implemented and monitored.

f) There are no significant doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

g) There is no material departure from the best practices of corporate governance as per regulations.


The Board of Directors consists of qualified individuals possessing knowledge, experience, and skills in various disciplines with the leadership and vision to provide oversight to the Company.

The Board is chaired by Mr. Kamal A. Chinoy, a non-executive Chairman; out of eight (8) directors, five (5) are independent directors. The current board composition reflects a good mix of experience and diversity in backgrounds, skills, and qualifications. All directors have several years of experience and are fully aware of their duties and responsibilities under the Code of Corporate Governance. At present, all directors have attended a directors training program except Mr. Mustapha A. Chinoy who has a minimum of 14 years of education and 15 years of experience on the boards of listed companies and therefore is exempt from a directors training program. Further, an orientation program is an integral part of the induction/election of new directors to give them an introduction to the Company, fellow directors, management, overall business, and current financial information.

In compliance with Clause 7 of the Listed Companies (Code of Corporate Governance) Regulations, 2019, a female director was elected at the last election of the Board of Directors at the 74th Annual General Meeting in September 2022.

A digital interface is being used to update the Board of Directors by providing the Companies Act, 2017, Listed Companies (Code of Corporate Governance) Regulations, 2019, relevant portions of the PSX Rule Book, the Company’s Memorandum & Articles of Association, and various policies and procedures.

To further its role of providing oversight and strategic guidelines to the Company, the Board has formulated a Board Charter to define its role of strategic leadership and provide guidance to the management. The Board has constituted two sub-committees, namely Board Audit Committee (BAC) and Human Resource & Remuneration Committee (HRRC). The composition, role, and responsibilities of the committees are clearly defined in their respective terms of reference.


A calendar is issued annually to reflect the dates planned for the Board of Directors, Board Audit Committee (BAC), Human Resource & Remuneration Committee (HRRC) meetings, and Annual General Meeting. During the year 2022-23, the Board had seven (7) meetings, out of which four (4) were held to review the annual/quarterly results and the other meetings were held to re-constitute the BAC and HRRC, pre-budget discussion/announcement of interim dividend, and to approve the annual budget for FY 2023-24. The average attendance of the directors in board meetings during the year was 97%.


At the 74th Annual General Meeting of the Company on September 30, 2022, eight (8) Directors were elected for a term of three (3) years. Thereafter, no casual vacancy arose till the end of FY 2023.


During the year 2022-23, no board meetings were held outside Pakistan. However, the Directors who are overseas at the time of the meetings were facilitated to attend meetings through video conferencing.


The Board of Directors provides the overall direction for company operations, provides oversight for various policies, and monitors the management in light of operational and financial plans. The roles of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer have been clearly defined where the Board is responsible for strategic guidance and providing directions for sustainable business.

The Chairman and the Chief Executive have separate and distinct roles. The Chairman has all the powers vested in him under the Listed Companies (Code of Corporate Governance) Regulations, 2019, and presides over all board meetings. The Chief Executive performs his duties under the powers vested by the law and the Board. He recommends, implements business plans and is responsible for overall control & operation of the Company.


We believe in ethical practices, sustainable manufacturing processes, transparent reporting to the shareholders, and the best practices of corporate governance to ensure business success and better results for all stakeholders.

The Board Charter defines the scope of the Board’s activities in ‘setting the tone at the top’, formulating strategies, and providing oversight to the management for sustainable growth of the business. Board members actively participate in meetings to provide guidance concerning the Company’s business activities and operational plans, review corporate operations, and formulate and review all significant policies. The Board firmly adheres to ethical practices and fully recognizes its responsibilities for the protection and efficient utilization of company assets for legitimate business objectives and compliance with laws and regulations. The Chairman ensures that the discussions held during board meetings and the consequent decisions arising are duly recorded and circulated to all the directors within fourteen (14) days. The CFO and the Company Secretary attend all the meetings of the Board as required by the Code of Corporate Governance.

All periodic financial statements and other working papers which normally include a detailed analysis of business matters for the consideration of the Board/subcommittees are circulated to the directors at least a week before the meetings, except for emergent meeting where the notice period was weived, through a cloud-based digital application so as to give them sufficient time to review and make decisions on an informed basis.


Unaudited quarterly financial statements and the half-yearly financial statements (with limited review by the auditors) were duly circulated within thirty (30) days and sixty (60) days respectively along with the Directors’ Report. Audited annual financial statements, including consolidated financial statements, were authorized by the Board of Directors and communicated to the Pakistan Stock Exchange within fifty-four (54) days from the close of the financial year. Additionally, all important disclosures, including the financial statements, were made on the Company’s website to keep the stakeholders duly informed.

A formal policy to review and approve the remuneration of non-executive directors is in place.

It maintains comprehensive policies, procedures, and budgeting mechanisms for conducting regular reviews. All control measures and policies are duly recorded. The Board sets the corporate strategy and defines the business goals of the Company.

The Board Audit Committee (BAC) has been entrusted with the primary responsibility of internal controls. It receives audit reports from the internal and external auditors and, after detailed deliberations and suggesting improvements, periodic reports are submitted to the Board of Directors. The Company places a high value on transparency, both internally and externally, in its corporate management. It focuses consistently on the implementation of efficient management practices for the purpose of achieving clear and quantifiable commitments.

Every director is required to bring to the attention of the Board, complete details regarding any material transaction which has a conflict of interest for prior approval of the Board. The interested directors neither participate in discussions nor vote on such matters.

Complete details of all transactions with related parties are submitted to the Board Audit Committee which recommends them to the Board for approval in each quarter. These transactions are also fully disclosed in the annual financial statements of the Company.


The Company has implemented comprehensive policies on Occupational Health, Safety and Environment and Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development to meet its corporate and societal responsibilities.

While general clarifications were sought by shareholders on the Company’s published financial statements during the 74th Annual General Meeting held on September 30, 2022, no significant issues were raised.


On May 30, 2023, the Board of Directors decided to increase the authorized capital from Rs.2.0 billion to Rs.10 billion and announced an EOGM for June 20, 2023 at 11.00 a.m. for seeking shareholders’ approval for the increase in the authorized capital of the Company, dissemination of annual reports through QR codes or weblinks and alteration in the Articles of Association to bring it in line with the Companies (Further Issue of Shares) Regulations, 2020.

A post-review of the budget announced by the Federal Government on June 9, 2023 for the upcoming fiscal year 2023-24 revealed that a 10% tax on the issuance of bonus shares has been imposed. An analysis of the changes in the fiscal structure suggested an alternate view about the increase in the authorized capital as proposed by the Board of Directors in their meeting on May 30, 2023. Therefore, the directors were of the view that the proposed increase in the authorized capital should be revoked and the EOGM scheduled on June 20, 2023 should be cancelled. Further, the other agenda items were deferred for the next general meeting.


During the year, the Company paid an interim cash dividend of 55% (Rs. 5.50 per share) to all eligible shareholders and the Board of Directors has recommended a final dividend of 20% (Rs.2.00 per share), making a total of 75% (Rs. 7.5 per share) in respect of the financial year ended June 30, 2023, which is subject to shareholders approval.
