OSLO, Norway, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANOV) ("Nordic Nanovector" or the "Company") today announces that following the decisions to discontinue the PARADIGME study for its lead asset Betalutin®, restructure the company and appoint Carnegie Investment Bank to explore strategic options three members of the Company's Board have decided to step down. Solveig Hellebust, Jean Pierre Bizzari and Thomas Ramdahl will step down from the Board with immediate effect.
As previously announced in the press release of 18 August 2022 a strategic exercise led by Carnegie has been initiated with the aim of optimising shareholder value, following the slow recruitment and subsequent disappointing data from the PARADIGME clinical trial.
The decision by these Board members to relinquish their Board positions following the downsizing of the Company will support the preservation of financial resources during this strategic process while retaining the necessary personnel needed to maximise the chances of a successful conclusion.
No assurances can be given as to the outcome or timing of the review process being conducted by Carnegie, but as stated in the Company's recent Q2 results presentation the review is expected to run into Q4 2022. Nordic Nanovector does not intend to make any further public comment regarding the review until it has been completed or the Company determines that disclosure is required or appropriate.
