Goldplat plc ('Goldplat' or 'the Company')
Goldplat, the AIM listed gold producer, with international gold recovery operations located in South Africa and Ghana, announces that Matthew Robinson, non-executive Chairman, has informed Goldplat of his intention to resign as a director of the Company but that he intends to remain in his role until the next AGM to allow reasonable time for Goldplat to make appropriate alternative arrangements and ensure a smooth transition.
Commenting on his intended resignation, Matthew Robinson said:
"Since my appointment as a director and Chairman at the 2016 Annual General Meeting, Goldplat has undertaken a transformation of strategy which has now been completed. The Group is now profitable and well financed, it has been returning cash to shareholders through a share buyback programme and it is at the forefront of ESG standards amongst its peers.
"Management have many excellent initiatives for taking the Group forward and this provides a solid platform for future shareholder returns. I have much enjoyed working with my colleagues in South Africa and Ghana and I wish the enterprise well."
Goldplat will undertake a review of its governance requirements, including board composition and the balance of independent non-executive directors, and update the market accordingly in due course.
