Directors’ Responsibility

The Board is collectively responsible for promoting the success of XLMedia by directing and supervising policy and strategy and is responsible to shareholders for the Company’s financial and operational performance and risk management.

Corporate Governance

As an AIM-listed company working within highly regulated markets, our Board recognises the importance of applying sound and consistent governance principles appropriate to the nature, scale and business of the Company and the need to apply best practices wherever possible to help manage risk within the business. Our Board is committed to upholding high standards of corporate governance throughout the Group. Our Board acknowledges its role in setting the culture, values and ethics of the Group and in ensuring good corporate governance principles are maintained for the long-term benefit of the Group.

In line with the requirement in the AIM rules requiring all AIM-quoted companies to adopt and comply with a recognised corporate governance code and detail how they comply with that code, the Board has formally adopted the QCA Corporate Governance Code (the Code) and reports annually on the Company’s compliance with the Code and any exceptions.

The Code is constructed around ten key governance principles that the QCA has identified as focusing on the pursuit of medium- to long-term value for shareholders. We have set out in the report below how we apply the ten principles of the Code, using the disclosures indicated by the Code. The Board believes that the Group complies with the principles of the Code as far as possible and has explained below where it does not comply.

The Board will continue to monitor how the Code is interpreted in practice to ensure we can continue to comply with the principles of the Code as far as possible.

Takeover Code

The Takeover Code applies to the Company. Under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code, any person who acquires an interest in shares which, taken together with shares in which that person or any person acting in concert with that person is interested, carry 30 per cent. or more of the voting rights of a company which is subject to the Takeover Code is normally required to make an offer to all the remaining shareholders to acquire their shares.

Similarly, when any person, together with persons acting in concert with that person, is interested in shares which in the aggregate carry not less than 30 per cent. of the voting rights of such a company but does not hold shares carrying more than 50 per cent. of the voting rights of the company, an offer will normally be required if any further interests in shares carrying voting rights are acquired by such person or any person acting in concert with that person.
