Former Tesco (TSCO.L) finance director Carl Rogberg will not stand trial with two of his former colleagues in September, Britain's Serious Fraud Office said on Monday. "Today His Honour Judge Sir John Royce severed Carl Rogberg from the upcoming trial indictment," the SFO said in a statement to media, which are barred under English law from reporting the reason why Rogberg will not stand trial in September.

Companies in Britain must strive to rein in excessive executive pay, pay more heed to staff and make boards more diverse under a new "short and sharper" corporate code, published on Monday. The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has updated its non-binding 26-year old code of corporate standards for publicly listed companies, which must comply with it or explain in annual reports to shareholders if they do not. The new 15-page code, about half the length of the current version, comes as the watchdog, which oversees company governance standards and accountants, faces a review to see if it can uphold high corporate standards to maintain Britain's attractions as a place to invest after Brexit.

Shareholders in Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) should not be overly concerned about its financial results over the next two years because those numbers are not that important to the clothing and food retailer's future, its new chairman told them on Tuesday. Retail veteran Archie Norman joined M&S as chairman in September last year and two months later the company detailed its latest attempt at a turnaround after more than a decade of failed reinventions. The plan included a five-year programme of store closures and relocations to cut excess selling space in its clothing business, increased technology investment and moves to make a misfiring food business more competitive.
