This excerpt taken from the ABII 10-K filed Mar 31, 2008.
The Company seeks to outperform its competition fairly and honestly. The Company seeks competitive advantages through superior performance, not unethical or illegal business practices. Each employee, officer or director should endeavor to deal fairly with the Companys customers, suppliers, competitors and employees. None should take unfair advantage of anyone through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts or any unfair business practice.
No employee may enter into any agreement binding the Company without authorization. The Company has instituted contract and signature approval policies that identify those individuals who have the authority to approve and sign contracts binding the Company and its subsidiaries. If there are any questions about which employees have signature authority for a given contract, contact the Chief Compliance Officer or the Companys Legal Department.
Officers, directors and employees are expected to maintain the confidentiality of information about projects, pricing or technology that is shared by the Companys customers and/or suppliers. Individuals should refer to the Companys confidentiality agreement policy for further information.
