RELATIONS WITH SHAREHOLDERS

We recognise the importance of maintaining a meaningful relationship with our shareholders, both in terms of sharing information as well as listening to views.

Understanding shareholder views and being aware of any issues of concern is a priority. The Chairman and CEO meet with Candover’s principal institutional shareholders regularly and our Senior Independent Director is available to be contacted by all shareholders as appropriate.

We take care to ensure that our Report and Accounts, the interim reports, interim management statements and other announcements present a balanced and understandable summary of our activities.

We use this website as the primary method for information sharing with investors.
