Relationships with Stakeholders and Shareholders.
The Board recognizes the importance of communication with its shareholders to ensure that its strategy and performance are understood and that it remains accountable to shareholders and we therefore maintain a regular dialogue with our institutional investors.
Executive ofﬁcers of the Company also engage with stakeholders and receive feedback from a range of such stakeholders including the Company’s employees which is then shared with the Board. The Board recognizes that the Company’s employees are a valuable asset and a key driver of the Company’s success. The Board and the Board’s committees, including the Research and Development Committee, also receive regular feedback directly from key advisers and third-party experts.
The Board understands the importance of social, environmental and ethical matters and it endeavours to take into account the differing interests of the Group’s stakeholders, including its investors, employees, patients, suppliers and business partners, when operating its business.
This website has a dedicated investor section which provides useful information for our shareholders including the latest announcements, press releases, published financial information, details of our products and our current development pipeline and other information about the Company. The Board as a whole is responsible for ensuring that a satisfactory dialogue with shareholders takes place, while the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman ensure that the views of the shareholders are communicated to the Board as a whole. The Board ensures that our strategic plans have been carefully reviewed in terms of their ability to deliver long‑term shareholder value.
Shareholders and American Depositary Share (ADS) holders are welcome to attend our AGM, at which directors will be available to discuss aspects of the Group’s performance and answer questions. Shareholders will have at least 21 days’ notice of the AGM and ADS holders will be made aware of the AGM by the ADS Depositary.
