DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/15 --
SPYR, Inc. (OTCQB: SPYR), a holding company with wholly-owned subsidiaries in the digital publishing and advertising industry and in the food service industry, today announced that the Company's Board of Directors and Executive Management Team, with the participation and review of its SEC counsel, have adopted a Code of Business and Ethical Conduct for the Company.
James R. Thompson, the Company's CEO & President commented: "We adopted this Code not only to comply with our Sarbanes-Oxley obligations to have a corporate Code of Ethics, but also to reinforce the Company's reputation for integrity and ethical standards in all areas of conduct, disclosure, and regulatory compliance. Compliance with the Code is required of every employee, officer and director of the Company. This Code outlines broad principles of legal and ethical conduct. Our goal in developing the Code was not just to comply with the legal standards set by Sarbanes Oxley, but to exceed them where we could, and I believe we've done that."
Thompson added: "We adopted strong policies requiring that all of our public and regulatory disclosures be subject to mandatory review procedures, including pre-review and written approval from the Company's executive officers and SEC legal counsel, confirming the accuracy of all factual representations and disclosures. We adopted these policies to insure that our communications with the public and the SEC are only done in an authorized, compliant and reliable manner, and to help the public identify legitimate published information about the Company."
"Adoption of the Code is also consistent with my goal of responsible corporate governance and my desire to instill trust and confidence in the Company, its management and its new business model and direction within the investment community," Thompson concluded.
