Board and Committee Independence
Notwithstanding that the UK Corporate Governance Code does not apply to the Company, the Company intends to comply with its recommendation for a ‘‘smaller company’’ (defined in the UK Corporate Governance Code as being a company that is outside the FTSE 350, as the Company will be), that it should have at least two independent non-executive directors. As of the date of this Document, the Board consists of three independent non-executive directors (including the Chairman) and two executive directors. The Company regards the non-executive directors as ‘‘independent non-executive directors’’ within the meaning of the UK Corporate Governance Code and free from any relationship that could materially interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement.
