Board Of Directors
The board of directors is a non-executive board.
The board meets every 6 weeks. At each AGM one third of the number of directors retire from office. A retiring director shall be eligible for re-election. The Company may from time to time by ordinary resolution increase or reduce the number of directors and may also determine in what rotation the increased or reduced number is to go out of office.
The Board of Directors has been recently restructured to include an Expert Advisory Panel, who advise the Board when needed, and a number of sub-committees.
