The Board

The Board normally comprises a non-executive Chairman, two other non-executive Directors and at least two executive Directors. The Directors (including non-executive Directors) have a range of experience and are of sufficient calibre to bring independent judgement to bear on issues of strategy, performance, resources and standards of conduct, which is vital to the success of the Group. The Board meets at least eight times a year and additionally when necessary. At each scheduled meeting of the Board, the Chief Executive reports on the Group’s operations and the Finance Director reports on the financial position of the Group. To enable the Board to discharge its duties, all Directors receive appropriate and timely information. Briefing papers are distributed by the Company Secretary to all Directors in advance of Board meetings. In addition the Board has adopted standard procedures and practices whereby significant issues affecting the Group are reviewed on a regular basis.

All non-executive Directors are considered to be independent by the Board. Keith Butler-Wheelhouse is the independent non-executive Chairman and Keith Jackson is the senior independent non-executive Director. There is a schedule of matters which are reserved for decision by the Board and matters which are delegated to the various Board committees or to the executive Directors, along with monetary levels of authority for capital expenditure and other financial commitments.

Following the appointment of new Directors, an appropriately tailored induction programme is arranged and the training needs of Directors are regularly considered. If appropriate, all Directors have the authority to take independent legal advice and have direct access to the Company Secretary.

Evaluation of the performance of the Board and evaluation of the performance of individual Directors is conducted regularly on an annual cycle.

Chairman and Chief Executive
