IRLAB (Nasdaq Stockholm: IRLAB A). Martin Nicklasson has announced his intention to leave the board in January 2022. The background to this decision is his new role as chairman of the board in another company.
According to IRLAB's articles of association, the board shall consist of at least three (3) and at most (10) members. When Nicklasson leaves the board, it will consist of five (5) members, and will thus continue to fulfill this requirement up to the next annual general meeting in May 2022, when a new board shall be chosen.
"On behalf of the board and shareholders I would like to extend a hearty thank-you to Martin for his valuable input to board activities this past year," says Gunnar Olsson, IRLAB's chairman of the board. "2021 has been a transformative period in IRLAB's development. Our successful license deal with mesdopetam and the regulatory approvals for the start of the Phase IIb study with pirepemat have given us a completely new basis for achieving IRLAB's long-term goals."
