Corporate Governance

The Directors are committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance, and propose, so far as is practicable given the Company’s size and nature, to comply with the QCA Code. The Company has established an Audit and Risk Committee and an AQSE Rules Compliance Committee with formally delegated duties and responsibilities. The Audit and Risk Committee will, on Admission, comprise Mahesh Pulandaran (who will chair the committee) and Jeremy Edelman and the AQSE Rules Compliance Committee will, on Admission, comprise Jeremy Edelman as chair and Mahesh Pulandaran.

The composition of these committees may change over time as the composition of the board changes.

The Audit and Risk Committee will determine the terms of engagement of the Company’s auditors and will determine, in consultation with the auditors, the scope of the audit. The Audit and Risk Committee will receive and review reports from management and the Company’s auditors relating to the interim and annual accounts and the accounting and internal control systems in use throughout the Company. The Audit and Risk Committee will have unrestricted access to the Company’s auditors.

The AQSE Rules Compliance Committee will ensure that procedures, resources and controls are in place to ensure that AQSE Rules compliance by the Company is operating effectively at all times and that the executive directors are communicating effectively with the Company’s corporate adviser regarding the Company’s ongoing compliance with the AQSE Rules and in relation to all announcements and notifications and potential transactions. Due to the size and nature of the Company the Board does not believe a remuneration or a nomination committee is suitable, however, the Board will continue to assess the need for such committees taking into account the principles of good governance.

The Company has adopted a share dealing code for dealings in securities of the Company by the Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibility which is appropriate for a company whose shares are traded on the AQSE Growth Market. This will constitute the Company’s share dealing policy for the purpose of compliance with UK Legislation including the Market Abuse Regulation. It should be noted that the insider dealing legislation set out in the UK Criminal Justice Act 1993, as well as provisions relating to market abuse, will apply to the Company and dealings in Ordinary Shares.

The Company has implemented an anti-bribery and corruption policy and also implemented appropriate procedures to ensure that the Board, employees and consultants comply with the UK Bribery Act 2010.

The Directors have established financial controls and reporting procedures, which are considered appropriate given the size of and structure of the Company. These controls will be reviewed as the Company’s operations grow and adjusted accordingly.
