S172 Statement

The Board of Directors of Portakabin Limited consider, both individually and collectively, that they have acted in a way they consider, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole (having regard to the stakeholders and matters set out in s.172 (a-f) of the Companies Act 2006) in the decisions taken during the year ended 31 December 2019.

Material decisions taken in the year include approval of the budget for 2020 and the strategy through to 2025 as well as the declaration and payment of dividends.

In making these material decisions, the Board took conscious steps to identify and take account of the potential impact (both positively and negatively) on key stakeholder groups (such as shareholders, employees, suppliers, customers and society as a whole) and concluded that the decisions taken and the anticipated outcomes were aligned with promoting the success of the company for the benefit of its members.  In particular the budget and strategy are designed to increase shareholder value whilst also delivering increased positive social benefit through continuing to provide employment as well as contributing to the economy through the hire and sale of Portakabin buildings.

I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to lead Shepherd Building Group and its leading brand Portakabin. The company does extraordinary things for its customers and I’m really looking forward to learning more and meeting the people that make those things happen. Derek has built a strong base during his tenure, with phenomenal year-on-year growth in profit, offering terrific further potential and I’m excited about our future.
