The Board is responsible for the governance of the Company, governance being the systems and procedures by which the Company is directed and controlled.
A prescribed set of rules does not itself determine good governance or stewardship of a company and, in fulfilling their responsibilities, the Directors believe that they govern the Company in the best interests of the shareholders, whilst having due regard to the interests of other 'stakeholders' in the Group including, in particular, customers, employees and creditors.
The Board of Directors
Our board is comprised:
- Raschid Abdullah - Executive Chairman
- Osman Abdullah - Group Chief Executive
- Paul Negus - Director
- Terry Connolly FCA - Non Executive Director
Principles and Approach
As a company whose shares are traded on AIM, Petards Group plc (the “Company”) is not required to comply with the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code published by the Financial Reporting Council in September 2012. The Board, however, recognises its responsibility for the proper management of the Company and the importance of sound corporate governance commensurate with the size and nature of the Company and the interests of its shareholders.
The Board is therefore committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance. The Board recognise the value of the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies (the “QCA Code”) and have complied with their 12 principles where considered relevant and appropriate, having regard to the size, current stage of development and resources of the Company.
