Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance Policy


In an ever-changing global marketplace, it is important for all of us to have an understanding of the responsibilities each of have in carrying out day-to-day business decisions and the impact such decisions may have on us as individuals and as a Company.  In furtherance of this recognition, I wish to call your attention to the revised guidelines we will follow in relation to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), which exposes companies and private citizens to criminal prosecution and civil penalties for non-compliance.

This Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance Policy (the “Policy”) applies not only to Laureate but also to our subsidiaries and affiliated business entities, and all persons or entities acting on behalf of such entities anywhere in the world.  Violations of this Policy will not be tolerated.

It is important that you continue to operate with integrity and uphold the highest professional and ethical standards in all parts or your everyday business activities.  If after becoming familiar with the Policy you have any questions or concerns about what is proper conduct for you or anyone else, promptly contact Robert W. Zentz, SVP and General Counsel, our designated Compliance Officer, or seek assistance through the Corporate Governance Hotline.
