Role of the Board and Board Committees

The Company supports the concept of an effective board leading and controlling the Company.  The Board is responsible for approving Company policy and strategy. It meets on a regular basis and has a schedule of matters specifically reserved for decision. Procedures are in place for operational management to supply the Board with appropriate and timely information and the Directors are free to seek any further information they consider necessary. All Directors have access to advice from the Company Secretary and independent professional advice at the Company’s expense.

The Board is responsible for maintaining a strong system of internal control to safeguard shareholders’ investments and the Group’s assets and for reviewing its effectiveness.  The system of internal financial control is designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance against material misstatement or loss.

The Audit Committee, chaired by Jonathan Quirk, meets at least twice a year to consider the integrity of the financial statements of the Company, including its annual and interim accounts, the effectiveness of the Company’s internal controls and risk management systems, auditor reports, and terms of appointment and remuneration for the auditors.

The Remuneration Committee, chaired by Mark Wellesley-Wood, meets at least twice a year and has as its remit the determination and review of, amongst others, the remuneration of executives on the Board and any share incentive plans of the Company.

The Board has considered the need for an internal audit function but has decided the size and complexity of the Group does not justify it at present. However, it will keep this decision under annual review.
