Oasmia Nomination Committee suggest changes in the Board of Directors

The Nomination Committee of Oasmia propose changes in the company´s Board of Directors to be decided on an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to be held on May 14, 2020. Current board member Anders Härfstrand is proposed to be the new Chairman of the Board and Birgit Stattin Norinder is suggested to be a new member of the Board. Jörgen Olsson, current Chairman of the Board, and Gunilla Öhman, current Board member, will leave the Board.

“Oasmia has had an eventful year with first sorting out issues of the past and then successfully pursuing a rights issue and entering into a global partnership. This has required intense work by the Board. Now entering the next step in the company’s development, a switch to more pharma industry competence on the Board is desirable. The contribution from Jörgen Olsson and Gunilla Öhman during this past year, with vast competence of company turn-arounds, troubleshooting and transparent communication, has been extraordinary. However, we see no point in awaiting an AGM for this change. With Birgit Stattin Norinder on the Board we will add further life science expertise and industry network”, says Per Arwidsson, chairman of the Nomination Committee and major shareholder of Oasmia through Arwidsro.

The current Nomination Committee consists of the three representatives; Per Arwidsson, Arwidsro, Chairman of the Nomination Committee, Håkan Lagerberg and Jörgen Olsson, current Chairman of the Board. Jörgen Olsson is suggested to be replaced in the Nomination Committee by Anders Härfstrand.

The EGM is to be held on May 14, 2020. A detailed notice to the EGM will be published separately by the company today.
