Chairman’s message

As Chairman I have taken a leading role in shaping the governance agenda at Bodycote and wanted to take this opportunity to address shareholders on what I believe are the important governance developments at Bodycote over the last year.

The policy of the Board is to manage the affairs of the Company in accordance with the principles of corporate governance contained in the UK Corporate Governance Code by promoting wide discussions on topics to which Board members contribute and demonstrate mutual engagement.

We strive to maintain best practice and continually seek to improve our practices for the benefit of our shareholders.

Alan Thomson
