Corporate Governance

Earning Trust Through Transparency and Accountability

We are committed to maintaining the trust of our partners – our shareholders, customers, vendors and our NexTier colleagues. An uncompromising commitment to integrity drives us to behave in a manner that demonstrates respect, transparency, dependability and accountability.

All employees must adhere to ethical business practices and fully comply with our corporate policies and procedures, as well as applicable laws and regulations. We strive to at all times act with awareness of our responsibility as a corporate citizen and to protect the safety and health of one another, the environment and the people of the communities in which we live and work. There is no acceptable excuse for not doing so.

We have adopted corporate policies and programs, including those described below, that promote the effective functioning of our Company, reinforce NexTier’s commitment to ethics and compliance, and ensure that NexTier is managed with integrity and in the best interest of our stakeholders.

Our Code of Conduct

We have worked hard to earn the trust of our stakeholders, and maintaining this trust is essential to NexTier’s future success. Our Corporate Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (also known as the “Code of Conduct”) helps us to do this. Our Code of Conduct provides important guidelines to ensure that we demonstrate our core values and maintain compliance with the rules and regulations applicable while conducting our business.

However, the Code of Conduct is only a guide. It is the duty and responsibility of every NexTier employee to protect the company’s reputation at all times and avoid any appearance of improper conduct. This means that we do the right thing even when no one is looking, and even if it costs us business or opportunities. We will reap success by keeping our core values at the forefront of everything we do.

Any company’s reputation can be easily undermined, and once compromised it is very hard to rebuild. We are diligent in running our business with integrity and in keeping with the highest ethical standards, and we expect that commitment from all of our employees. NexTier employees are required to strictly adhere to the principles of our Code of Conduct; there is no excuse for doing something you know is wrong.
