The Culture that Unites Us

Despite our strategic choice to operate via decentralized, autonomous businesses, we seek to be united by some shared mindsets. Our businesses and central teams have great freedom in bringing these mindsets to life, they are nevertheless a strong and recognizable part of each business’ culture.

The shared Cimpress mindsets:

  • Customer Focused
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Long Term
  • Frugal
  • Passionate About Making a Difference

RESPONSIBILITIES ACROSS CIMPRESS

Cimpress team members also have a few shared responsibilities:

  • Develop and meet centrally approved, business-specific strategies and financial plans
  • Be part of the Cimpress-wide team
  • Fulfill our compliance requirements
  • Be socially responsible

OUR BOARD

The Board of Directors’ principal responsibility is to oversee the management of the company and its subsidiaries and, in so doing, serve the best interests of the Company and its business.

Members of our board are expected to act properly in the interest of the company and its stakeholders: customers, team members, society and investors. In doing so, the board should act in accordance with the requirements of reasonableness and fairness (redelijkheid en billijkheid) towards all involved in the company.

CONTINUITY FOUNDATION

An independent foundation, Stichting Continuïteit Cimpress, exists to safeguard the interests of Cimpress N.V. and its stakeholders and to assist in maintaining Cimpress’ continuity and independence. To this end, Cimpress has granted to the foundation a call option pursuant to which Stichting Continuïteit Cimpress may acquire a number of preferred shares equal to the same number of ordinary shares then outstanding, which is designed to provide a protective measure against unsolicited take-over bids for Cimpress and other hostile threats.
