•  Dennis Millard, Minnow Powell, Sarah Wood and John Smith have given three-months' notice under their contracts and will stand down as directors with effect from 1 July 2019;

•  Julian Dunkerton and Peter Williams have been appointed to the Board:

•  Peter Williams has been appointed as Chairman of the Board;

•  Julian Dunkerton has been appointed Interim Chief Executive Officer.
