Corporate governance and Board practices
The Company is not required to comply with the provisions of the Governance Code or the QCA Code.
The Board, however, recognises the importance of sound corporate governance and intends that the Company will comply with the provisions of the Governance Code and the QCA Code insofar as they are appropriate given the Company’s size and stage of development.
The Board will comprise two executive directors and two non-executive directors. The executive directors, being Stephen Blyth and Richard Myson, are not considered to be independent. The Board has established an Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee and a Remuneration Committee with formally delegated duties and responsibilities and each with written terms of reference.
Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee
The Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee will comprise Alex Borrelli and Geoff Gillo and will be chaired by Geoff Gillo. The Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee is expected to meet at least four times a year and otherwise as required.
It has responsibility for ensuring that the financial performance of the Company is properly reported on and reviewed, and its role includes monitoring the integrity of the consolidated financial statements of the Company (including annual and interim accounts and results announcements), reviewing internal control and risk management systems, reviewing any changes to accounting policies, reviewing and monitoring the extent of the non-audit services undertaken by external auditors and advising on the appointment of external auditors. The Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee will have unrestricted access to the Company’s external auditors.
The Audit, AIM Rules and MAR Compliance Committee also has responsibility for ensuring that the Company has in place the procedures, resources and controls to enable compliance with the AIM Rules and with MAR.
The Remuneration Committee will comprise Geoff Gillo and Alex Borrelli and will be
chaired by Alex Borrelli. It is expected to meet not less than twice a year and at such other times as required.
The Remuneration Committee has responsibility for determining, within the agreed terms of reference, the Company’s policy on the remuneration packages of the Company’s chief executive, the chairman, the executive directors, the non-executive directors, the Company secretary and other senior executives. The Remuneration Committee also has responsibility for determining the total individual remuneration package of the chairman, each executive and non-executive director, the Company secretary and other senior executives (including bonuses, incentive payments and share options or other share awards), in each case within the terms of the Company’s remuneration policy and in consultation with the chairman of the Board and/or the chief executive officer. No Director or manager may be involved in any discussions as to their own remuneration.
The Company considers that, at this stage of its development and given the current size of its Board, it is not necessary to establish a formal nominations committee. This position will be reviewed on a regular basis by the Directors.
Share dealing code
The Company has adopted a share dealing code for the Board and certain employees in accordance with the provisions of MAR and the AIM Rules, and the Company will take all reasonable steps to ensure compliance by the Board and any relevant “applicable employees” (as defined in the AIM Rules) with such code.
Anti-bribery and corruption policy
The Company has implemented an anti-bribery and corruption policy and also implemented appropriate procedures to ensure that the Board, employees and consultants comply with the UK Bribery Act 2010.
