Corporate Governance

The Board of Directors of IMImobile PLC (“IMImobile”, the “Company” or the “Group”) recognises the importance of good corporate governance and is committed to ensuring that an effective and appropriate framework exists in the Group. The Board has adopted the QCA Corporate Governance code and has applied the principles having considered the size and complexity of the Group’s operations as well as best practice for an AIM listed company.

The QCA Corporate Governance code is constructed under ten broad principles; these principles ensure that companies are committed to delivering growth in long-term shareholder value, that the company has an effective and dynamic management framework accompanied by good communication which promotes confidence and trust.

Delivering Growth

1. ‘Establish a strategy and business model which promote long-term value for shareholders.’

IMImobile’s business model and strategy is outlined on a yearly basis in the Chief Executive’s report in the Company’s Annual Report. This report analyses performance across the Group on a regional basis and outlines any particular issues that have impacted growth in the past year.  Our growth strategy has remained relatively consistent over the last few years focussing on four main areas which are outlined in our latest financial results presentation:

  • Grow share of interactions from existing customers;
  • Accelerate organic growth via channel partners;
  • Introduce new technologies and invest in our Intellectual Property (“IP”); and
  • Make acquisitions which provide further distribution of the Group’s IP


In addition, the principal risks and uncertainties identified by the Board to the successful delivery of the Company’s strategy, together with the principal controls in place to mitigate those risks, are set out on Pages 21 – 23  of the Annual Report. The Board reviews the Company’s risk register at each full Board meeting.

2. ‘Seek to understand and meet shareholder needs and expectations.’

The Company engages in full and open communication with both institutional and private investors and responds promptly to all queries received. Investors and shareholders are encouraged to make contact with the Company by contacting our advisors https://imimobile.com/investor-relations/#advisers-and-registrars or submitting enquiries via the Company’s website https://imimobile.com/contact/.

In conjunction with the Company’s brokers and other advisors, all relevant news is distributed in a timely fashion through appropriate channels to ensure shareholders are able to access material information on the Company’s progress.

To facilitate this:

  • All shareholders are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) and are encouraged to take the opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
  • The primary point of contact for shareholders on operational matters is Jay Patel as CEO and Mike Jefferies as CFO.
  • The primary point of contact for shareholders on corporate governance and other related matters is John Allwood as Chairman.


The executives meet regularly with shareholders, usually, immediately after the Company’s half year and full year financial results announcements, these meetings are used to discuss the Group’s performance and answer any questions they may have. The Board monitors feedback from these meetings through anonymous evaluations from both shareholders and analysts co-ordinated by the Company’s advisors.

The Company’s website www.imimobile.com has a section for investor relations which contains all publicly available financial information and news on the Company.

3. ‘Take into account wider stakeholder and social responsibilities and their implications for long-term success’

The Company reports on its Corporate Social Responsibility in the Annual Report. At IMImobile, we are committed to operating at the highest ethical standards and with integrity. We are proud to be a partner of the UN Global Compact initiative, committed to adopting sustainable, socially responsible policies and adherence to their universal principles on human rights, labour practices, the environment and anti-corruption. We care deeply about the impact that we have on our employees, our customers and the wider community.

4. ‘Embed effective risk management, considering both opportunities and threats throughout the organisation.’

The Board has overall responsibility for managing risk. Risks are formally identified and recorded in the Company’s risk register, which is reviewed by the Board at each full board meeting. Risks are evaluated based on likelihood and potential impact, including any change from the prior year, and the adequacy of current mitigating controls to reduce risk is reviewed during the meeting. The Board do not consider there to have been any significant changes in the severity of the risks during the year.

The principal risks and uncertainties of the Group are set out in the Company’s Annual Report. For details please follow this link:

Maintaining a Dynamic Management Framework

5. ‘Maintain the Board as a well-functioning, balanced team led by the Chair’

The Board of IMImobile have a collective responsibility and legal obligation to promote the interests of the Company. The Board is committed to ensuring that an effective and appropriate corporate governance framework exists in the Group, given the size and complexity of the Group’s operations. Details of the composition of the Board and the Company’s board committees, being the audit committee, remuneration and nomination committees are set out in the following links: https://imimobile.com/investor-relations/#board-of-directors and  https://imimobile.com/investor-relations/#corporate-governance

6. ‘Ensure that between them the directors have the necessary up-to-date experience skills and capabilities.’

The composition of the Board has been designed to provide a variety and balance of different skill sets, this includes significant experience in:

  • Technological innovation;
  • Media & Telecoms sectors;
  • Entrepreneurial culture;
  • Acquisitions;
  • Senior financial qualifications; and
  • Other listed PLC companies.


Through this extensive experience, the Board and individual Directors are well-positioned to set out the strategic aims of the Company, drive and uphold the Group’s values and ethical standards as well as minting their obligations to shareholders interests.

The Board is also supported by an experienced and capable operational leadership team across the Group who operate within a clearly laid out framework of devolved decision-making.

7. ‘Evaluate the board performance based on clear and relevant objectives, seeking continuous improvement’

The Board has concluded that its performance in the years since the Company listed on AIM has been satisfactory.

The Board has also agreed that in the current year and each year thereafter it will undertake a formal evaluation, in the form of a detailed questionnaire to be completed by each Director. This review will include an evaluation of the performance of individual Directors including the Chairman and the individual committees.

Under the Company’s Articles of Association at every Annual General Meeting, at least one-third of the Directors are required to retire and may be proposed for re-election.

8. ‘Promote a corporate culture that is based on ethical values and behaviours.’

The culture across the Group is one born out of respect for and collaboration between colleagues, customers and partners. Employees are actively encouraged to share their views with management of the Group across several different mediums from employee engagement surveys to anonymous online feedback tools to ‘town-hall’ style forums where updates are shared on progress across the Group, strategic initiatives and business objectives.

IMImobile is proud to be a partner of the UN Global Compact Initiative. The Company is committed to adopting sustainable, socially responsible policies and adherence to their universal principles on human rights, labour practices, the environment and anti-corruption. The Corporate Social Responsibility section in the Annual report outlines how we conduct our business and our consideration towards our employees, the wider community and the environment.

9. ‘Maintain governance structures and processes that are fit for purpose and support good decision-making by the board.’

The Board has established clearly defined and well-understood roles for all members of the Board. The Chairman, John Allwood, is responsible for the leadership of the Board, ensuring its effectiveness and setting its agenda. Once strategic and financial objectives have been agreed by the Board, it is the Chief Executive Officer, Jay Patel’s, responsibility to ensure they are delivered upon.

The Non-Executive Directors provide a sounding board to the Chairman as well as providing an additional channel of contact for shareholders, other directors or employees, if the need arises. There is regular communication between Executive and Non-Executive Director’s including, when required, matters requiring attention prior to the next Board meeting.

Updates on trading and newsworthy progress are provided across various communications channels, and updated on the Company’s website from time to time.
