We take our governance responsibilities seriously and devote appropriate time and effort to ensure that Frontier is run on a responsible and considerate basis, with a focus on long-term sustainable success. As part of our approach to governance, we endeavour to take into account all of our key stakeholders and consider our influence within the games industry and our impact on wider society.
In 2013 the Company listed on AIM, and as a result the Board established corporate governance arrangements appropriate to a public listed company, through the consideration of best practice guidelines and aspects of the UK Corporate Governance Code.
Prior to 2018, as an AIM-listed company, Frontier was not required to comply with a corporate governance code, but its arrangements were reviewed against the Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA) Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Sized Companies.
The AIM Rules changed in 2018 and as a result the Board refined the Company’s corporate governance arrangements in order to follow the 10 principles of the QCA Corporate Governance Code
The Annual Report for 2023 is available here. The table below sets out the ten principles of the QCA Code and provides direction to the relevant section(s) in the Annual Report for each principle.
