A corporate governance rating is a final opinion on the importance institutions attach to the shareholder rights, their public disclosure activities, relationship with stakeholders and the overall credibility of the board of directors. Our rating is realized on basis of information provided by the rated entity and acquired from other sources by our analysts. SAHA does not perform any audit activities with respect to a rating, instead uses auditor reports as a source. This rating can be modified when access to changing conditions and information is not possible, and can be temporarily suspended or withdrawn.
SAHA allocates a rating for an institution only when sufficient information is supplied. A rating process includes macro and micro analysis and key data (general shareholders’ meetings, publicly disclosed information and documents, minutes of board meetings, court cases filed, etc.) on the rated institution’s core business are taken into consideration. Any publicly undisclosed information provided to SAHA is stored on the basis of confidentiality rules and principles.
