1 EAGLE PARENT, INC EPICOR SOFTWARE CORPORATION ACTIVANT SOLUTIONS, INC. UK ANTI-BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION POLICY (As Adopted July 2011) Introduction This UK Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy ( Policy ) is intended for use by Eagle Parent, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including Epicor Software Corporation, Activant Solutions, Inc., Epicor Software (UK) Limited, Scala International Limited, Activant Solutions UK Limited and Epicor Retail Solutions Corporation and other companies within the group that are either incorporated in the UK or have entered into contracts with customers, partners or suppliers who are incorporated or located in the UK (together "Epicor") This Policy should be read in conjunction with our Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance ( FCPA ) Policy ( FCPA Policy ). Epicor is committed to maintaining the highest level of professional and ethical standards in the conduct of its business in all countries in which it operates or otherwise has business connections. The Company s reputation for honesty, integrity, and fair dealing is an invaluable component of the Company s financial success, and of the personal satisfaction of its employees. 1. Purpose 1.1 The purpose of this Policy is to: (a) (b) set out our responsibilities, and the responsibilities of those working for us or associated with us, in observing and upholding our position on bribery and corruption, including under the UK s Bribery Act 2010, as such may be amended from time to time, including by successor legislation (the Act ); and provide information and guidance to those working for us on how to recognise and deal with bribery and corruption issues. In this Policy the use of the terms "we", "our" and "us" refer to Epicor. It is important that you read, understand and act in accordance with this Policy. To implement this Policy effectively, every person to whom it applies must make a commitment to it and to uphold the standards it sets out.
2 2. To whom does this Policy apply? This Policy applies to all individuals working at all levels and grades, including senior managers, officers, directors, employees (whether permanent, fixed-term or temporary), consultants, contractors, trainees, seconded staff, homeworkers, casual workers and agency staff, volunteers, interns, agents, sponsors, or any other person associated with us, or any of our subsidiaries or their employees, wherever located (collectively referred to as "Workers" in this policy). This Policy does not form part of any employee's contract of employment and it may be amended at any time. However breach of this policy by any employee will be a disciplinary offence which could result in dismissal. 3. Our principles 3.1 It is our policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner. We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption and are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and to implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery. 3.2 It is our best practice objective that those we do business with take a similar zerotolerance approach to bribery and corruption. 3.3 We will uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which we operate. Epicor's UK subsidiaries remain bound by the laws of the UK, including the Act, in respect of their conduct both at home and abroad. 3.4 Bribery and corruption are criminal offences and are punishable in the UK for individuals by up to ten years' imprisonment and if an Epicor group company is found to have taken part in corruption it could face an unlimited fine, be excluded from tendering for public contracts and face damage to our reputation. We therefore take our legal responsibilities very seriously and expect you to do the same. 3.5 In this Policy "third party" means any individual or organisation you come into contact with during the course of your work for us, and includes actual and potential clients, customers, suppliers, distributors, business contacts, agents, advisers, and government and public bodies, including their advisors, representatives and officials, politicians and political parties. 3.6 This Policy should be read in conjunction with Epicor's FCPA Policy and Epicor s Worldwide Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
3 4. Responsibility for the Policy? 4.1 This Policy is endorsed by Epicor's executive management team and board of directors. The board of directors of Eagle Parent, Inc. has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it. 4.2 Epicor's Corruption and Anti-Bribery Compliance Manager is Vince Lowder, Vice President, Asst. General Counsel ( Compliance Manager ). 4.3 The Compliance Manager has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, and for monitoring its use and effectiveness. The Compliance Manager can be contacted about this Policy at In his absence, questions should be directed to Yu-Ho Cheung, Corporate Counsel at 4.4 Management and senior staff at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them are made aware of and understand this Policy and are given adequate and regular training on it. 5. Risks for our business We have identified some particular risks for our business. An overview of these risks is set out in Schedule 2 to this Policy together with our assessment of those risks and the steps we have taken to address them. 6. What are bribery and corruption under the Act? Corruption is the abuse of public or private office for personal gain. A bribe is an inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to gain any commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage. Some possible examples of bribery are set out below. These are examples only and are not the only ways bribery and corruption can occur. They are provided to assist you with your compliance with this Policy: Example 1: Offering a bribe You offer a potential client tickets to a major sporting event on the condition that they agree to do business with us. This offer would be an offence under the Act as you are making the offer to gain a commercial and contractual advantage. Epicor may also be found to have committed an offence because the offer has been made to obtain business for us. It may also be an offence for the potential client to accept your offer.
4 Note that the Act does not prohibit bona fide and reasonable hospitality (see Section 7 below for further information). Example 2: Receiving a bribe A supplier gives your nephew a job, but makes it clear that in return they expect you to use your influence in our organisation to ensure we continue to do business with them. It is an offence for a supplier to make such an offer. It would be an offence for you to agree to this as you would be doing so to gain a personal advantage; accordingly, such an offer must therefore be declined. Example 3: Bribing a foreign official: You arrange for the business to make a payment to a foreign official to speed up an administrative process. This is not a payment required under local written law. The offence of bribing a foreign public official has been committed as soon as the offer is made. This is because it is made to gain a business advantage for on behalf of the Company. We may also be found to have committed an offence. This is also an offence under the FCPA Policy. Should you encounter any similar scenarios to these, you should contact your line manager and the Compliance Manager immediately. 7. Hospitality 7.1 This Policy does not prohibit bona fide reasonable and proportionate hospitality (given and received) to or from third parties, which seeks to improve the image of Epicor, allow us to better present products and services or establish cordial relations. 7.2 The giving of hospitality is not prohibited provided the following requirements (and 7.1) are met: (a) (b) (c) (d) it is not made with the intention of influencing a third party to obtain or retain business or a business advantage, or to reward the provision or retention of business or a business advantage, or in explicit or implicit exchange for favours or benefits; it complies with local law where the hospitality is being given; it is given in the Company s name, and not in your name; it is of nominal value;
5 (e) (f) (g) (h) it is appropriate in the circumstances; taking into account the reason for the hospitality, it is of an appropriate type and value and given at an appropriate time; it is given openly, not secretly; and the hospitality is promptly and accurately recorded as Entertainment in our records using our expense-recording system. and that the third party is identified. Hospitality may not be offered to, or accepted from, government officials or representatives, or politicians or political parties, without the prior approval of the Compliance Manager. 8. Gifts 8.1 The giving or receipt of nominal gifts is not prohibited, providing the following requirements are met: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) (g) (h) (i) it is not made with the intention of influencing a third party to obtain or retain business or a business advantage, or to reward the provision or retention of business or a business advantage, or in explicit or implicit exchange for favours or benefits; it complies with local law where the gift is being given; it is given in the Company s name, not in your name; it does not include cash or a cash equivalent (such as gift certificates or vouchers); it is of nominal value; it is appropriate in the circumstances. For example, in the UK it is customary for small gifts to be given at Christmas time; taking into account the reason for the gift, it is of an appropriate type and value and given at an appropriate time; it is given openly, not secretly; and the gift is promptly and accurately recorded as a gift in our records using our expense-recording system and the third party identified. Gifts may not be offered to, or accepted from, government officials or representatives, or politicians or political parties, without the express prior approval of the Compliance Manager. 8.2 We appreciate that the practice of giving business gifts varies between countries and regions and what may be normal and acceptable in one region may not be in another. The test to be applied is whether in all the circumstances the gift or hospitality is reasonable, proportionate and justifiable. The intention behind the gift or hospitality must always be considered.
6 If you have any doubt as to whether the giving or receiving of a gift falls within this exception contact your line manager in the first instance. 9. Other Prohibitions Under the Act In addition to the prohibitions above it is not acceptable for you (or someone on your behalf) to: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received, or to reward a business advantage already given; give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality to a government official, agent or representative to "facilitate" or expedite a routine procedure (where the payment is not a legitimate payment pursuant to local written law); accept payment from a third party that you know or suspect is offered with the expectation that it will obtain a business advantage for them; accept a gift or hospitality from a third party if you know or suspect that it is offered or provided with an expectation that a business advantage will be provided by us in return; threaten or retaliate against another worker who has refused to commit a bribery offence or who has raised concerns under this Policy; or engage in any other activity that might lead to a breach of this Policy. 10. Facilitation payments 10.1 We do not make, and will not accept, facilitation payments or "kickbacks" of any kind. Whilst we recognise that limited facilitation payments are permitted under the FCPA (see our FCPA Policy for further information) it is not acceptable to make such a payment under this Policy Facilitation payments are typically small, unofficial payments made to secure or expedite a routine government action by a government official. They are not commonly paid in the UK, but are common in some other jurisdictions in which we operate. (a) Example: A government prospect indicates that it has tentatively accepted your bid, subject to a formal signature approval process. You may not offer an inducement to a government official to expedite the approval process. Such inducement is considered a facilitation payment If you are asked to make a payment on our behalf, you should always be mindful of what the payment is for and whether the amount requested is proportionate to the goods or services provided. You should always ask for a receipt which details the
7 reason for the payment. If you have any suspicions, concerns or queries regarding a payment, you must raise these with the Compliance Manager Kickbacks are typically payments made in return for a business favour or advantage. All workers must avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, that a facilitation payment or kickback will be made or accepted by us. 11. Donations As a rule, the Company does not typically make contributions to political causes or parties.. We only make charitable donations that are legal and ethical under local laws and practices. No donation to a political cause or party or charity must be offered or made without the prior approval of the Compliance Manager. 12. Your responsibilities 12.1 You must read, understand and comply with this policy The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery and other forms of corruption are the responsibility of all those working for the Company or under its direction or control. All workers are required to avoid any activity that breaches or gives the appearance of a breach of this Policy You must notify your manager or the Compliance Manager or any available whistleblowing facility which we may have been put in place as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with this Policy has occurred, or may occur in the future. For example, if a client or prospect offers you something to gain a business advantage with us, or indicates to you that a gift or payment is required to secure their business. Further indicators that may point towards bribery or corruption are set out in Schedule 1. These indicators cannot be ignored and must be addressed. Further red flags are set out in the Company s FCPA Policy Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, which may include dismissal We reserve our right to terminate our contractual relationship with other Workers if they breach this policy. 13. Record-keeping 13.1 We must keep financial records and have appropriate internal controls in place which will evidence the business reason for making payments to third parties.
8 13.2 You must declare and keep a written record of all hospitality or gifts accepted or offered seeking any prior managerial approval required as appropriate You must ensure all expenses claims relating to hospitality, gifts or expenses incurred to third parties are submitted in accordance with the Company s expense policy and specifically record the reason for the expenditure using our expense-recording system and the expense type Entertainment or Gift and identify the third party involved. All accounts, invoices, memoranda and other documents and records relating to dealings with third parties, such as clients, suppliers and business contacts, must be prepared and maintained with strict accuracy and completeness. No accounts may be kept "off-book" to facilitate or conceal improper payments. 14. How to raise a concern 14.1 You are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of malpractice at the earliest possible stage. If you are unsure whether a particular act constitutes bribery or corruption, or if you have any other queries, these should be raised with your line manager or the Compliance Manager Concerns should be reported by following the procedure set out in our Whistleblowing Policy. Concerns can be raised confidentially and anonymously through the Company s whistleblower hotline, Ethicspoint either on line at or by telephoning anonymously to A copy of our Whistleblowing Policy can be found at the Company website. 15. What to do if you are a victim of bribery or corruption It is important that you inform the Compliance Manager or follow the procedure in the Whistleblowing Policy as soon as possible if you are offered a bribe by a third party, are asked to make one, suspect that this may happen in the future, or believe that you are a victim of another form of unlawful activity. 16. Protection 16.1 Workers who refuse to accept or offer a bribe, or those who raise concerns or report another's wrongdoing, are sometimes worried about possible repercussions. We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this Policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of refusing to take part in bribery or corruption, or because of reporting in good faith their suspicion that an actual or potential bribery or other corruption offence has taken place, or may take place in the future. Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a
9 concern. If you believe that you have suffered any such treatment, you should inform the Compliance Manager immediately. If the matter is not remedied, and you are an employee, you should raise it formally using our grievance procedure, which can be obtained from your local HR representative. 17. Training and communication 17.1 Training on this Policy will be provided to all Workers on a periodic basis Such training will be relevant to the Worker's roles and some Workers will be given more detailed training Our zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption must be communicated to all suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and as appropriate thereafter. 18. Monitoring and review 18.1 The Compliance Manager will monitor the effectiveness and review the implementation of this Policy, considering its suitability, adequacy and effectiveness, and implement improvements as required All Workers are responsible for the success of this policy and should ensure they use it to disclose any suspected danger or wrongdoing Workers are invited to comment on this Policy and suggest ways in which it might be improved. Comments, suggestions and queries should be addressed to the Compliance Manager.
