ASX CORPORATE GOVERNANCE COUNCIL PRINCIPLES AND RECOMMENDATIONS The ASX Corporate Governance Council has recognised that its corporate governance principles and recommendations do not represent a “one size fits all” solution. Icon Energy has considered and, where appropriate, applied the ASX Corporate Governance Recommendations. The following table shows that Icon Energy has adopted all of the ASX Corporate Governance Recommendations, with the exception of Recommendations 2.1(a)(1), 4.1(a)(1), 7.1(a)(1), 8.1(a)(1), which recommend that Committees have at least three members. The Board of Directors has formed the view that it is more practical for a Company the size of Icon Energy to have a Committee of at least two independent Directors, rather than three Directors.
