Annex A

Statement of Directors' responsibilities in respect of the financial statements

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 Consolidated and Company financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union. 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 IFRSs as adopted by the European Union have been followed for the Consolidated and Company financial statements, 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 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 and, as regards the Consolidated financial statements, Article 4 of the IAS Regulation.

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 Group and Company's position and performance, business model and strategy.

Each of the Directors, whose names and functions are listed on pages 38 and 39 of the Annual Report con rm that, to the best of their knowledge:

-- the Consolidated and Company nancial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union, give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, nancial position and pro t 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, together with a description of the principal risks and uncertainties that it faces.

Principal risks and uncertainties

The details of our principal risks and uncertainties and the key mitigating activities can be found on pages 26 to 29. We are disclosing those risks and uncertainties that we believe have the greatest impact in achieving our strategic objectives. 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 24. This framework enables us to monitor for any increase in likelihood or impact and ensure that we have the appropriate mitigations in place.

Zotefoams' risk profile will evolve as the business grows at its targeted pace, although we expect these principal risks to remain broadly consistent. As we mature our thinking and approach to risk management and appraise how best to embed and communicate it, we have attempted to simplify our presentation of the key risks by aggregating those risks that share common causes. As a result, we have consolidated the 12 principal risks and uncertainties reported in 2017 into 6 principal risk areas in 2018.

We have removed pension from our key risks. While we recognise the importance of effective management of this area and accept the exceptional items of the past two years, we have concluded that it is not a material risk to the Group given the size of the net pension liability and its diminishing ratio against the Group's net assets as the Group continues to grow.

Related party transactions


The Directors of the Company as at 31 December 2018 and their immediate relatives control approximately 1.0% (2017: 1.1%) of the voting shares of the Company. Details of Directors' pay and remuneration are given in the Remuneration Report on pages 46 to 55. Executive Directors are considered to be the only key management personnel. Details of compensation paid to key management personnel are included in note 6.
