The Board of Directors is committed to maintaining a high standard of corporate governance cognizant of the stage of development of the Group. Corporate governance is recognised as an evolving standard which the Directors regularly review as the Group moves towards commercial production.

The Board is accountable to the Company's shareholders and it exercises good governance principles to achieve the goals of the Company. It meets in person approximately every six weeks in either the United Kingdom or the Philippines to determine Group strategy, reviewing executive management performance, and evaluating risk and controls. If there are special matters to attend to it will meet to address these whenever required.

The Board currently comprises three Directors, one executive-director and two non-executive Directors. During 2017 there were fifteen (15) Board/Committee meetings and during 2016 there were twenty five (25) Board/Committee meetings.

An agenda and supporting documentation is circulated to every Director and attendee in advance of each meeting. The Directors apply individual judgement on the various issues affecting the Group and all have full and timely access to information necessary to enable them to discharge their duties. Non-executive Directors are not appointed for specific terms. Each year one third of the Directors are up for re-election at the Annual General Meeting and each new Director is subject to election at the next Annual General Meeting following the date of their appointment.

There are four committees supporting the Board of Directors; Share Allocations Committee, Remuneration Committee, Audit Committee and Risk Committee.
