Hurricane has aligned its governance with best practice and reports on a voluntary basis against the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code 2016 (the Code) on a comply or explain basis, commensurate with the standards expected by stakeholders of premium listed companies. The Code and associated guidance are available on the Financial Reporting Council website at

The Board assesses its compliance with the Code on an annual basis and an update on the status of company's compliance is provided in the Annual Report each year. As at the date of this statement, 27 March 2019, Hurricane was in compliance with the provisions of the Code with the following exceptions (relevant Code provisions referenced):

  • Hurricane has at least two independent non-executive directors, in accordance with the second part of Code provision B.1.2, as applicable to smaller companies below the FTSE 350 throughout the year immediately prior to the reporting year. However, Hurricane does not comply with the remainder of Code provision B.1.2, applicable to larger companies, which requires at least half the directors to be independent.
  • Hurricane does not comply with Code Provision B.7.1 by subjecting all of its directors to annual election by shareholders. The company currently offers its directors for re-election by rotation in accordance with its Articles of Association every three years, on the basis that at least one-third of the directors in number must be re-elected every year. Going forward this re-election process will be kept under review and should Hurricane move to a premium listing it will be reviewed again in light of the company’s new obligations.
