As the parent company is not incorporated in the UK, the rights of shareholders may be different from the rights of shareholders in a UK incorporated company.
The Company’s Business
The parent company’s main business is that of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Audioboom Limited (referred to as audioBoom).
AudioBoom is the leading spoken‐word audio platform for hosting, distributing and monetising content.
AudioBoom works with more than 4,000 broadcasters, content creators and podcasters around the world ‐ including the BBC, Associated Press, NBC Sports Radio and Undisclosed ‐ hosting more than 12,000 content channels.
AudioBoom’s hosting and distribution platform allows partners to embed, share via social channels and re‐syndicate their content. AudioBoom content receives over 60m unique file requests per month, and growing. Additionally, AudioBoom works with its partners to monetise their audio via live in‐reads, the dynamic insertion of pre, mid and post roll audio adverts, and video ads, which unlike most other forms of digital advertising cannot be prevented from being broadcast by ad blockers as it is part of the audio recording.
Corporate Governance Code
The Directors are committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance and, in so far as is practicable and appropriate given the company’s size and nature, ensuring that the company is in compliance with the Quoted Companies Alliance (“QCA”) Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies (the “Corporate Governance Code”).
The company has adopted a Share Dealing Code and will take steps to ensure compliance by the Board and any relevant key employees.
The Directors have implemented such corporate governance procedures and established such committees of the Board, including audit and remuneration committees, as they believe are required for the Board to comply with the terms of the Corporate Governance Code, in so far as is appropriate for a company of its size.
The Directors have established financial controls and reporting procedures which are considered appropriate given the size and structure of the company. These controls will be reviewed as the business develops.
