Corporate governance

As an organisation, we seek to achieve and maintain best practice in corporate governance and the directors acknowledge the importance of the principles of the Quoted Companies Alliance Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Sized Quoted Companies 2013 (QCA Code).

Although the QCA Code is not compulsory for companies listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), the directors apply the principles of the QCA Code to the extent they consider appropriate for a company the size and nature of Vernalis in accordance with the QCA Code.

For a copy of the QCA Code, visit the Quoted Companies Alliance website at and click on Guides.

Below we have provided pdf copies of the terms of reference for each of our Board Committees together with our Code of Conduct and Ethics policy.
