The Board has commenced a formal process to recompose the Board, identifying and supplementing
the existing Board with additional expertise and skills.
As was noted at the Group’s recent AGM, succession planning is a key priority for the Board. This is
echoed by the current Group Chairperson, Dr Wiese, who has indicated his intention to retire as
Chairperson by the next AGM. The Board is of the view that, in line with good corporate
governance, the next Group Chairperson should be independent, a view supported by Dr Wiese. As
such the process to find a suitable independent successor has commenced.
Further updates will be provided from time to time.
