For the purposes of this policy, all companies within the Destiny Inc. structure are referred to as ‘Destiny’ or the ‘Company’.

Statement of policy on anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance

Destiny Incorporated requires its employees and workers to act honestly and with integrity at all times and to safeguard the resources for which they are responsible. In this context Destiny is committed to ensuring that opportunities for corruption and bribery are eradicated. These principles are based on the commitment of the Board of Directors of Destiny Inc. to fundamental values of integrity, transparency and accountability. Destiny aims to create and maintain a trust-based and inclusive internal culture in which there is zero tolerance for bribery and corruption including facilitation payments.

This document sets out Destiny’ policy for the control of actual and suspected corruption and bribery within Destiny, and the processes to be followed in the event of actual or suspected instances of corruption or bribery being discovered.

Destiny will re-examine its links with any third parties it has reasonable grounds to suspect are

involved in bribery or corruption. It will not hesitate to take appropriate legal and/or disciplinary action against employees and third parties who breach the Company’s anti-bribery and anti-corruption program, including this policy.

You are required to read this policy carefully and to ensure that you, your staff and any third parties you have appointed, comply with it at all times. If you are ever found to have infringed this policy you will be subject to disciplinary measures, which may include dismissal.

1. Background

1.1. Bribery and corruption are criminal offences in every country in which Destiny operates. Anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws have a significant impact on our operations globally. In particular, laws including United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), Asian Development Bank (ADB), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), The Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG), Bribery Act (UK) and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (USA) influence how Destiny must behave, including when interacting with third parties, anywhere in the world.

2. Scope of the Anti-bribery & Anti-corruption Policy (the ‘Policy’)

2.1. This Policy applies to all Employees and Third Parties (as defined in section 5 below) regardless of geographical location and provides the minimum standard of behavior expected from them.

2.2. On the basis that this Policy is based global (as define in section 1.1) anti-corruption laws, it provides a very high standard of compliance and is therefore likely to meet most local standards. Nevertheless, we recommend that Employees familiarize themselves with the applicable anti-corruption laws in each jurisdiction in which they conduct business on behalf of Company.

3. Consequences of breach

3.1. Legal penalties for bribery and corruption are severe, and may include imprisonment for individuals involved. For example, UK law allows for 7 to 10 years’ imprisonment or an unlimited fine. In addition, Company could face severe fines or other criminal penalties for bribery and corrupt activity by Employees and Third Parties.

3.2. Destiny will investigate fully any activity contravening this Policy and, where applicable, take disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

4.4. Things of value can include cash payments, gift vouchers, lavish gifts, improper political or charitable contributions, tickets to entertainment events, employment of relatives, the provision of services free of charge or anything else of substantive value.

4.5. The indirect offering, promising or giving of a thing of value would be, for example, through a relative or close associate of the person in question.

4.6. The activities and functions that are expected to be performed in good faith, impartially or from a position of trust are very broad and include most matters that are: connected with a business; which occur in the course of a person's employment; or are of a public nature.
