Chairman’s Letter
Dear colleagues:

The Universal Corporation family of companies has proudly been conducting business for over 90 years. During that time, our people all over the world have strived to build up our most important business asset—Integrity.

Looking forward, we need to preserve this valuable asset. Conducting our business with integrity is essential to maintaining our status as the leader in our industry. We owe it to our customers, our communities, our shareholders, and each other. We each have a key role to play, and Universal is counting on you.

Our Code of Conduct sets high ethical standards to guide us. Conducting business pursuant to high ethical standards is the right thing to do, and it is also good business. When it comes to ethics and integrity, we at Universal have three primary goals: 1) work with integrity; 2) conduct business with integrity; and 3) handle information and assets with integrity. When we achieve these goals, we make Universal the company it deserves to be.
