Idorsia Ltd (SIX: IDIA) today issued the invitation to the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Shareholders on behalf of the Board of Directors.

Mathieu Simon, Chairman of the Board of Idorsia commented:
“Alongside the regular business of approving the accounts and reporting for 2022, this year we propose several changes to the company’s Articles of Association, to bring Idorsia in-line with Swiss corporate law reform which entered into force this year. In addition, I’m pleased to say all Board members will stand for re-election and we are proposing an additional member to the Board. Dr Sophie Kornowski is an industry veteran, who has been working for large and medium-sized pharmaceutical corporations and has an impeccable track-record ranging from commercial expertise to business development aspects. In addition, her recent experience with private equity and venture capital will bring an additional skill set to the current board.”
