Corporate governance

The Board recognises its responsibility to serve the interests of shareholders in managing the Company by applying high standards of corporate governance commensurate with its size, stage of growth and the nature of its activities.

The Company is a member of The Quoted Companies Alliance, the membership organisation which represents the interests of small and mid-size quoted companies. The Quoted Companies Alliance publishes and maintains the Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies (the QCA Code), which seeks to help companies apply key principles from the UK Code and other themes of governance best practice to their particular needs and circumstances in a manner which is proportionate for growing enterprises. The QCA Code sets out twelve broad principles of behavior and a set of minimum disclosures intended to reflect governance best practice and ensure that this is reported to shareholders.

The Board considers the principles and recommendations contained in the QCA Code in the context of its business and implements these in a manner which is appropriate for the size, and current stage of development of the Company, reflective of the expectations of our shareholders. The Board will continue to assess its governance arrangements in conjunction with the performance of its operations and the assessment of the effectiveness of its board.
