JPJ Group plc is a public company limited by shares incorporated in the United Kingdom. It is a Premium listed company on the Main Market of the London Stock and is committed to high standards of corporate governance and control.

UK Corporate Governance Code

JPJ Group plc’s approach to corporate governance is primarily based on the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code) published by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) in April 2016 and the Listing Rules of the UK Listing Authority. The Company complies with the Code or, if it does not comply, explains the reasons for non-compliance. The Code is available at www.frc.org.uk.

Board of Directors

The Board and management of JPJ Group plc aim to pursue objectives in the best interests of the Company, its shareholders and other stakeholders, and particularly to create long-term value for shareholders.

The Board is composed of nine members, consisting of Mr. Goulden (Executive Chairman of the Board), Messrs. Wykes and Laslop (Chief Executive Officer, Jackpotjoy Operations Ltd. and Chief Financial Officer, respectively) and six independent non-executive directors (Messrs. Brewster, Danziger, Pathak, Ryan, Sturgeon, and Mrs. Vidler).

The Corporate Governance Code also recommends that the Board should appoint one of the independent non-executive directors as senior independent director, and Colin Sturgeon has been appointed to fill this role. The senior independent directors should be available to shareholders if they have concerns, where contact with the Chairman, CEO, Jackpotjoy Operations Ltd. or CFO has failed to resolve, or for when such contact is inappropriate.
