Corporate Governance

Governance Policy

Whilst the Company has not adopted a governance code, the Board supports the principles of good governance. The Group is committed to high standards of corporate governance and has adopted procedures to institute good governance insofar as they are practical and appropriate for a business of this size. The Board has an Audit & Risk Committee, an Appointments Committee and a Remuneration Committee, in each case comprising a majority of Non-executive directors and chaired by a Non-executive director.

Board Effectiveness

The Group supports the concept of an effective Board leading and controlling the Group. The Board is responsible for approving Group policy and strategy. It meets regularly and has a schedule of matters specifically reserved to it for decision. Management supplies the Board with appropriate and timely information and the directors are free to seek any further information that they consider necessary. All directors have access to advice from the Company Secretary and independent professionals at the Group’s expense. The Chairman and members of the three Committees are as follows:

Audit & Risk Appointments Remuneration
Stephen Minion dot2 dot2 dot1
Christopher Lyons dot2 dot1 dot2
Andrew Willetts dot1 dot2 dot2

dot1 Chairman dot2 Committee member

Audit & Risk Committee

The primary responsibility of the Audit & Risk Committee is to provide confidence to shareholders by monitoring the financial affairs and risks of the Company and any subsidiary of the Company (together “the Group”) and ensuring that the financial performance of the Group together with all the Group’s risks are properly measured and reported on. The Committee reviews reports from the Group’s auditors relating to the accounting and internal controls in all cases having due regard to the interests of shareholders.

The Audit Committee meets at least four times a year and otherwise as appropriate and has unrestricted access to the Group’s auditors. Due to the size and complexity of the Group, the Audit & Risk Committee does not currently consider there is need for a separate internal audit function. The Chairman of the Audit Committee is Andrew Willetts.

Appointments Committee

The primary responsibility of the Appointments Committee is to approve proposals for senior appointments to the Company. The Appointments Committee seeks to identify the skills and experience required for the next stage in the Company’s development. The Committee would support the Chairman in taking the steps to remove any underperforming executive or Non-executive Director. The Appointments Committee meets as required. The Chairman of the Appointments Committee is Christopher Lyons.

Remuneration Committee

The primary responsibility of the Remuneration Committee is to review the performance of the Directors and determine the terms and conditions of service of senior management and any director appointed to the Board, including the remuneration of and any grant of options to such person. Remuneration arrangements are designed to motivate the right behaviours and to align with and support the implementation of Company strategy and effective risk management for the long term. The Remuneration Committee meets at least once a year and otherwise as appropriate. The Chairman of the Remuneration Committee is Stephen Minion.

The Directors will comply with Rule 21 of the AIM Rules and Rule 71 of the NEX Exchange Rules for Issuers relating to directors’ dealings and will take all reasonable steps to ensure compliance by those of the Company’s employees to whom the AIM Rules and NEX Exchange Rules for Issuers apply. The Company operates a share dealing code for directors and employees in accordance with the AIM Rules and NEX Exchange Rules for Issuers.
