Corporate Governance

Section 12 Providing information and support

Principle

The whole Board and its committees should be provided with high quality information in a timely manner to facilitate proper assessment of the matters requiring a decision or insight.

Non-executive Directors should be provided with access to all information they require and to external advice as necessary.

Compliance

The Board is provided with detailed financial reports of the Group’s financial performance on a regular monthly basis with more frequent updates if required.

Investment proposals submitted by the Investment Manager are delivered in a timely manner with full supporting documentation, supplemented as required by reports from external professional advisers so that the board can constructively challenge recommendations before making decisions.

The Company is in regular dialogue with its NOMAD to ensure full compliance with AIM regulations.

Non-executive Directors have a contractual right to external advice, at the Company’s expense, when necessary.
