On 20th February 2007 The London Stock Exchange introduced new rules (IR26) for companies whose shares are traded on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM).
The new rule (AIM Rule 26) requires all AIM-listed companies to feature a statutory minimum of Investor Relations information on their website. Decho offers a full solution that will provide compliance with Rule 26 and will also make sure your website is a primary means of corporate information and leave all visitors with a positive impression.
The new Rule 26 (IR 26): To satisfy this requirement, AIM-listed companies must publish the following key information on their website:
■ A description of its business and, where it is an investing company, its investing policy and details of any investment manager and/or key personnel;
■ The names of its directors and brief biographical details of each, as would normally be included in an admission document;
■ A description of the responsibilities of the members of the board of directors and details of any committees of the board of directors and their responsibilities;
■ Its country of incorporation and main country of operation;
■ Where the AIM company is not incorporated in the UK, a statement that the rights of shareholders may be different from the rights of shareholders in a UK incorporated company;
