Corporate Governance

As of 11 August 2014, it was a requirement of Rule 26 of the AIM Rules for Companies that the Company’s website contains details of the corporate governance code that Dods has decided to apply and how the Company complies with that code.

As a company listed on AIM, Dods is not required to comply with the UK Corporate Governance Code. The corporate governance code that the Directors have decided to apply instead, so far as it is reasonable and practical to do so given the size of the Group, is the Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies (2013) produced by the Quoted Companies Alliance (the “QCA Code”). The Board notes that the QCA Code refers to certain minimum disclosures which must be seen to be addressed in order for a company to say that it complies with the QCA Code.
