On April 28, 2017, The Stars Group amended its Code of Business Conduct (the “Code”), a copy of which is available at the link directly above. The substantive amendments made to the Code: (a) clarify that it is The Stars Group’s policy to operate in compliance with all laws including anti-corruption laws, and that compliance with laws always take precedence over customs or social requirements; (b) more explicitly caution employees, officers and directors that there are special legal and ethical considerations that apply to the provision of gifts, benefits and entertainment to public officials; (c) provide that gifts shall not be made to public officials without express authorization from The Stars Group’s legal department and that such legal department shall be consulted prior to hiring family members of current or former public officials; (d) caution that certain jurisdictions strictly prohibit gaming companies and their employees from engaging in political activities; and (e) provide that reports of violations or possible violations of the Code can be made anonymously through The Stars Group’s Whistleblower Hotline.
