Description of the business

Corporate Governance

As a company listed on AIM, Intercede Group plc is not required to comply with the requirements of the Combined Code. A number of voluntary disclosures have been made that are not subject to audit.

Board of Directors

The Company is controlled through the Board of Directors which currently comprises two executive and four non-executive directors, two of whom are considered to be independent. All of the directors have extensive business experience.

The Company has historically combined the posts of Chairman and Chief Executive in one person, namely Richard Parris. The Board believes that to separate the roles would be detrimental at this stage of the Group’s development. Ben Drury was appointed as the senior independent non-executive director with effect from 1 April 2015. This is to be an annually rotated position amongst qualifying non-executive directors as recommended by the Nominations Committee and ratified by the Main Board. All directors submit themselves for re-election at least every three years.

Committees of the Board

The Board has established three committees; the Audit Committee, the Remuneration Committee and the Nominations Committee.

The structure of the Board Committees from 1 April 2015 onwards is as follows:

Audit Committee – Royston Hoggarth is the Chairman of the Audit Committee given his ‘recent and relevant’ financial experience in a variety of Chairman, Chief Executive and non-executive director roles and given his prior experience as Chairman of the Axon Group plc Audit Committee. Ben Drury and Rob Chandhok, both of whom are considered to be independent, are also members of the Audit Committee.

Remuneration Committee – Ben Drury has been appointed as the Chairman of the Remuneration Committee which also comprises Royston Hoggarth and Rob Chandhok, thereby providing a majority of independent directors.

Nominations Committee – The Nominations Committee consists of Richard Parris (Chairman) and Rob Chandhok (independent non-executive director).

Relations with shareholders

The Company gives high priority to communications with current and potential future shareholders by means of an active investor relations programme. The principal communication with private investors is through the website ( and the provision of Annual and Interim Reports. All shareholders will receive at least twenty one clear days’ notice of the Annual General Meeting at which the Directors will be present and available for questions.

Going concern

The Directors, after having made appropriate enquiries including a review of the Group’s financial forecasts for 2015/16 and 2016/17, have a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. For this reason they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements.


Internal control

The Board confirms that there is an ongoing process for identifying, evaluating and managing the significant risks faced by Group which complies with the guidance “Internal Control: Guidance for Directors on the Combined Code (The Turnbull Report)”.

The key features of the Group’s internal control systems are as follows:

Group organization and culture

The Board meets regularly, and is responsible for the overall Group strategy, acquisition and divestment policy, approval of major capital expenditure projects and consideration of significant financing matters. It monitors the key business risks and reviews the strategic direction of the Group, its codes of conduct, forward projections and progress towards their achievement. Senior management concentrates on the formulation of strategic proposals to the Board and operational decision making.

Delegation of authority

The Board reserves to itself a range of key decisions to ensure it retains proper direction and control of the Group, whilst delegating authority to individual directors who are responsible for the day to day management of the business.

Financial reporting

There is a comprehensive planning system, including regular periodic forecasts which are presented to and approved by the Board. The performance of the Group is reported monthly and compared to the latest forecast and the prior period.
