Hurricane continually align its governance with best practice and reports on a voluntary basis against the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code 2018 (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 www.frc.org.uk . During the year we have not fully complied with the following provisions of the 2018 Code:

  • Provision 2.11 – For most of the year, less than half of the Board was independent; and
  • Provision 3.18 – All directors are not subject to annual re-election. In accordance with Article 64 of the Company’s Articles of Association, at least one-third of the Board stood for re-election at the Company’s AGM.

The Board has so determined that any divergence from the 2018 Code is in the best interests of the Group as outlined in the Company’s Annual Report and Accounts 2019
