|The corporate governance mission of PharMerica Corporation (the "Company") is to maximize stockholder value while operating in accordance with the law and a high set of ethical standards. Ultimately, the corporate authority to carry out this mission rests with the Company's board of directors (the "Board"), as the representative of the stockholders. While the Board delegates authority to management to implement the Company's mission on a day-to-day basis, the Board retains primary responsibility over the governance of the Company. Specifically, the Board will retain the authority to: (i) recommend candidates to the stockholders for election to the Board; (ii) select and evaluate the CEO; (iii) oversee the Company's succession plan; (iv) determine senior management compensation; (v) ensure the existence of adequate systems, procedures and controls; and (vi) assist in the approval of a financial operating plan and strategic direction. Additionally, the Board provides advice and counsel to senior management.
