About us

Our governance

We believe that good corporate governance is essential for building a successful and sustainable business in the long-term interests of shareholders. An effective governance framework is also designed to ensure accountability, fairness and transparency in the Company’s relationships with all of its stakeholders whether customers, suppliers, employees, the government or the wider community.
 
Areas of focus in the year
Over the year the Board has reviewed the Group's three year strategic plan in light of the changing commercial environment. The Board has regularly reviewed new product development and customer relations.
 
In addition the Board undertook an external evaluation exercise, a detailed review of risks facing the business and has received regular updates on shareholder communication.
 
Compliance with the UK Governance Code 2014
The Board supports the principles laid down by the UK Governance Code 2014 (the Code) as issued by the Financial Reporting Council which applies for the financial year ended 1 April 2017 (available at www.frc.org.uk). Subject to not all directors being able to attend the 2016 AGM (as outlined under Board Attendance on page 24 of the 2016/17 annual report) I am pleased to confirm that over the course of the year we complied with all the provisions of the Code.
 
AGM
Our AGM will again be held at the offices of Gowling WLG (UK) LLP, 4 More London Riverside, London, SE1 2AU on Thursday 20 July 2017 at 11.00 am and I look forward to seeing you then.
