Gamesys Group 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 Exchange and is committed to high standards of corporate governance and control.

UK Corporate Governance Code

Gamesys Group’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 Gamesys Group aim to pursue objectives in the best interests of the Company, its shareholders and other stakeholders. In particular, it seeks to create long-term value for shareholders.

The Board is composed of nine members: Neil Goulden (Executive Chairman of the Board), Lee Fenton (Chief Executive Officer), Keith Laslop (Chief Financial Officer), Robeson Reeves (Chief Operating Officer), Simon Wykes (Transition Director), and the four Independent Non-Executive Directors of Nigel Brewster, Jim Ryan, Colin Sturgeon and Andria 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 Director should be available to shareholders if they have concerns, should prior contact with the Chairman, CEO, Jackpotjoy Operations Ltd. or the CFO fail to resolve them, or if such contact is inappropriate.

A diverse and inclusive culture

The Group believes that a diverse, inclusive culture is key in driving a successful and modern business, and we therefore fully support greater female representation on listed Boards. As and when Board appointment opportunities arise, Gamesys Group will look to make full use of the procedures recommended by the UK Corporate Governance Code to ensure greater female representation. All Board appointments will be based on merit and must be in the best interests of all stakeholders.
