Section 172 Statements

Section 172 of the Companies Act 2006 sets out a number of general duties that directors owe to a company. These includes a general duty requiring directors to act in a way in which they consider, in good faith, will promote the success of the company for the benefit of shareholders as a whole.

New statutory reporting requirements mean that certain companies within Smiths Group plc need to include a statement in the Strategic Report within their Annual Report to help shareholders better understand how directors of certain companies have discharged their duty to promote the success of the company, while having regard to the matters set out in section 172(1).
