Statement of directors’ responsibilities
Statement of directors’ responsibilities
The directors are responsible for
preparing the Strategic Report, the
Directors’ Report and the financial
statements in accordance with
applicable law and regulations.
Company law requires the directors
to prepare such financial statements
for each financial year. Under that law,
the directors have elected to prepare
the Group financial statements in
accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (“IFRSs”) as
adopted by the European Union and
have also chosen to prepare the parent
company financial statements under
IFRSs as adopted by the EU. 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
Company and of the profit or loss of the
Company for that year.
