THE BOARD

The board comprises three executive directors and seven non-executive directors, of whom three are independent. They enjoy no benefits from the company for their services as directors other than their fees, potential capital gains and dividends on their interests in ordinary shares and options. The non-executive directors are high-calibre professionals and sufficient in number for their views to carry significant weight in the board’s deliberations and decisions. The guidelines contained in the JSE Listings Requirements were used to test the category most applicable to each director.

Dr Humphrey Mathe (Chairman, Independent Non-Executive Director)

THE INDEPENDENT BOARD COMMITTEE

The independent board (“IB”) is positioned by the board to preside over corporate activities for good governance and, where necessary, to preside when any possible conflict of interest may exist and regulations call for an independent governing body. It comprises independent non-executive directors who are not shareholders and who are not affiliated with the executives of the firm. They are directors who have no business dealings with the company.

The IB is expected to provide vigilant oversight to mitigate risk and to promote shareholder value. The IB also oversees board responsibilities in areas such as mergers and acquisitions when independence is required.
