The Board seeks to understand and meet shareholder needs and expectations though regular shareholder updates, communications and through the Company’s AGM; the Company also encourages shareholders to communicate with the Company through its investor relations team. Alongside this, the Chief Executive Officer, Finance Director and Chairman make themselves available to meet shareholders, particularly following half year and full year results; meeting with private investors from time to time; and engaging in regular dialogue with the Company’s broker with a view to gauging shareholder sentiment, to ensure the Board develop a good understanding of shareholder needs and expectations.
