MEETINGS AND DIRECTOR ATTENDANCE
During the last fiscal year, there were 12 meetings of the board of directors and one unanimous written consent. The independent members of the board of directors meet regularly in executive session without the presence of management or inside directors three times every year at the conclusion of each scheduled quarterly meeting except the meeting held in October. Although Molex has no formally designated “Lead Director”, the Chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee acts as Chairman for these executive sessions.
During last fiscal year, each director attended at least 75% of the aggregate of the total number of meetings of the board of directors and committees on which he or she served.
Molex’s corporate governance guidelines require the members of the board of directors to make every reasonable effort to attend Molex Annual Stockholders’ Meeting. Last year, all the members of the board of directors were present.
