- Mr. Stephen Fabian, previously Chairman, has become an independent non-executive director.
Commenting on today's announcement, Stephen Fabian, former Chairman and now non-executive director, said:
"Despite significant recent progress having been made delivering upon our stated exploration, development and acquisition strategy, Kincora continues to take measures to strengthen the Company, further reduce overhead and administrative costs, align our strategy with current market conditions and planned internal activities.
In particular, the realignment of roles amongst the existing internal team reflects planned 2013 field season activities and ongoing discussions with potential strategic investors regarding technical and financial synergies.
