The QCA has published the QCA Code, a set of corporate governance guidelines, which include a code of best practice, comprising principles intended as a minimum standard, and recommendations for reporting corporate governance matters. The Directors acknowledge the importance of high standards of corporate governance and have and intend to continue, given the Company’s size and the constitution of the Board, to comply with the principles set out in the QCA Code. Upon Admission and presently, the Board comprises six Directors, two of whom that are executive and four of whom shall be non-executive directors, reflecting a blend of different experiences and backgrounds as described under the tab labeled “Board of Directors” under www.belluscura.com. The Board believes that the composition of the Board brings a desirable range of skills and experience in light of the Company’s challenges and opportunities following Admission, while at the same time ensuring that no individual (or a small group of individuals) can dominate the Board’s decision making. The Board meets regularly, currently 11 times per year, to review, formulate and approve the Group’s strategy, budgets, corporate actions and oversee the Group’s progress towards its goals. The Company has established an Audit Committee, a Remuneration Committee and a Nomination Committee, each with formally delegated duties and responsibilities and with written terms of reference. From time to time, separate committees may be set up by the Board to consider specific issues when the need arises.
