We appreciate the advance notice of his intention to retire from the Board as it allows for an orderly succession. With that in mind, we are fortunate to have on the Board a suitable successor in Peter, who I have enjoyed working with and I look forward to the value he can add in the years ahead.”

Mr Rolf Stahel said:

“I have enjoyed my time pre and post IPO at Ergomed. I congratulate Peter George on his well merited appointment as Chairman Designate.
