Board Committees

The Board is ultimately responsible for the day-to-day management of the Company’s business, its strategy and key policies. Members of the Board are appointed by the Shareholders. The Board also has power to appoint additional directors, subject to such appointments being approved by Shareholders. At least 4 board meetings are held per year.

 As prescribed by the QCA Code, the Board has established three committees: an Audit and Risk Committee, a Remuneration Committee and a Nomination Committee.


The Audit and Risk Committee, which comprises Douglas Wright, Michael Foster and Chuck Forrest, is responsible, amongst other things, for monitoring the Group’s financial reporting, external and internal audits and controls, including reviewing and monitoring the integrity of the Group’s annual and half yearly financial statements, reviewing and monitoring the extent of non-audit work undertaken by external auditors, advising on the appointment of external auditors, overseeing the Group’s relationship with its external auditors, reviewing the effectiveness of the external audit process and reviewing the effectiveness of the Group’s internal control review function. The ultimate responsibility for reviewing and approving the annual report and accounts and the half-yearly reports remains with the Board. The Audit and Risk Committee gives due consideration to laws and regulations, the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code and the requirements of the Listing Rules.


The Remuneration Committee, which comprises Douglas Wright and Michael Foster, is responsible, amongst other things, for assisting the Board in determining its responsibilities in relation to remuneration, including making recommendations to the Board on the Company’s policy on executive remuneration, including setting the parameters and governance framework of the Group’s remuneration policy and determining the individual remuneration and benefits package of each of the Company’s Executive Directors and the Group. It is also responsible for approving the rules and basis for participation in any performance related pay-schemes, share incentive schemes and obtaining reliable and up-to-date information about remuneration in other companies. The Remuneration Committee shall meet at least two times a year.
