Reporting Illegal or Unethical Behavior:
Employees, officers and directors who suspect or know of violations of the Company Codes of Business Conduct or Ethics, or illegal or unethical business or workplace conduct by employees, officers or directors have an obligation to report it. If the individuals to whom such information is conveyed are not responsive, or if there is reason to believe that reporting to such individuals is inappropriate in particular cases, then the employee, officer or director may contact the Chief Compliance Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Director of Internal Audit, or any corporate officer in person, by telephone, letter to the Company's principal address or e-mail below.
Quanex also encourages persons who are not affiliated with the Company to report any suspected illegal or unethical behavior.
Such communications will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible. If the individual is not satisfied with the response, they may contact the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company. If concerns or complaints require confidentiality, then this confidentiality will be protected, subject to applicable laws.
