The Board accepts full responsibility for corporate governance and is committed to ensuring a high standard of discipline, independence, ethics, equity, social responsibility, accountability, cooperation and transparency.
The Board is satisfied that the Company, as a company registered in accordance with the laws of England and Wales with a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange, meets the requirements of the UK Companies Act of 2006, the UK Listing Authority’s Listing Rules and the majority of the principles of the UK Corporate Governance Code issued by the Financial Reporting Council, most recently updated in April 2016. As the Company also has a secondary listing on the JSE Limited (“JSE”), the South African stock exchange, the Company also meets all relevant requirements of the JSE Listings Requirements.
