Annex A

Statement of Directors’ responsibilities in respect of the financial statements

The Directors consider the Annual Report, taken as a whole, to be fair, balanced and understandable.

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Annual Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulation.

Company law requires the Directors to prepare financial statements for each financial year. Under that law, the Directors have prepared the Group and Company financial statements in accordance with UK-adopted international accounting standards. Under company law, the Directors must not approve the financial statements unless they are satisfied that they give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Group and Company and of the profit or loss of the Group and Company for that period. In preparing the financial statements, the Directors are required to:

•           Select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently

•           State whether applicable UK-adopted international accounting standards have been followed subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements

•           Make judgements and accounting estimates that are reasonable and prudent and

•           Prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Group and Company will continue in business.

The Directors are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Group and Company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

The Directors are responsible for keeping adequate accounting records that are sufficient to show and explain the Group’s and Company’s transactions and disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Group and Company and enable them to ensure that the financial statements and the Directors’ Remuneration report comply with the Companies Act 2006.

The Directors are responsible for the maintenance and integrity of the Company’s website. Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.

The Directors consider that the Annual Report, taken as a whole, is fair, balanced and understandable and provides the information necessary for shareholders to assess the position and performance, business model and strategy of the Group and Company.

Each of the Directors, whose names and functions are listed on pages 78 and 79 of the Annual Report, confirm that, to the best of their knowledge:

•           The Consolidated and Company financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with UK-adopted international accounting standards, give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit of the Group and Company and

•           The Group CEO’s review includes a fair review of the development and performance of the business and the position of the Group and Company. A description of the principal risks and uncertainties faced by the Group and the Company is provided on pages 41 to 50.

Principal risks and uncertainties

The Group is exposed to a wide range of risks in addition to those listed, and these are managed through the risk management framework shown on page 40. This framework enables us to monitor for any increase in likelihood or impact and ensure that we have the appropriate mitigations in place. The details of our principal risks and uncertainties and the key mitigating activities can be found on pages 41 to 50. We are disclosing those risks and uncertainties that we believe have the greatest impact in achieving our strategic objectives.

Zotefoams’ risk profile will evolve as the business grows at its targeted pace, although we expect these principal risks and uncertainties to remain broadly consistent.

The Directors of the Company as at 31 December 2022 and their immediate relatives control approximately 1.3% (2021: 1.2%) of the voting shares of the Company. Details of Directors’ pay and remuneration are given in the Directors’ Remuneration report on pages 88 to 109. Executive Directors are considered to be the only key management personnel.
