Board programme: The Board is responsible for approving the Company strategy and policies, for safeguarding the assets of the Company, and is the ultimate decision-making body of the Company in all matters except those that are reserved for specific shareholder approval.
The Board meets at least four times each year in accordance with its scheduled meeting calendar and maintains regular dialogue between Board members, in particular between the CEO, the Chairman and the non-executive Board members.
The Board and its Committees receive appropriate and timely information prior to each meeting, with a formal agenda being produced for each meeting, and Board and Committee papers distributed several days before meetings take place.
Roles & responsibilities: There is a clear division of responsibility at the head of the Company between the Chairman and the CEO.
The Board is supported by the Audit, Remuneration, AIM and MAR Compliance and Nominations committees. Each committee has access to such resources, information and advice as it deems necessary, at the cost of the Company, to enable the committee to discharge its duties.
As the Group grows and develops the Board will periodically review its corporate governance framework to ensure it remains appropriate for the size, complexity and risk profile of the Group.
