Nicox S.A. (NYSE Euronext Paris: COX) today announced the election of Vicente Anido, Jr., PhD., to the Company's Board of Directors for a period of four years. Dr. Anido is a highly experienced and respected leader in the ophthalmology sector and most recently served as President and Chief Executive Officer of ISTA Pharmaceuticals prior to its acquisition by Bausch + Lomb. The Company also announced that Vaughn Kailian, Managing Director at MPM Capital and former President & CEO of COR Therapeutics, has been re-elected as a member of the Board of Directors for a period of four years. Bengt Samuelsson and Jorgen Buus Lassen have retired from the Board due to their reaching the age limit set out in the Company's by-laws. "I am honoured to join Nicox's Board of Directors. The Company already has a number of promising assets and a sound strategy to become an international and innovative ophthalmic company. I look forward to sharing my experience and contributing to the future growth of the business", said Vicente Anido. "We are pleased to welcome Vicente Anido as a member of the Nicox Board of Directors and would also like to thank Vaughn Kailian for his continued support for Nicox as a Board member" said Michele Garufi, Chief Executive Officer of Nicox. "We look forward to their unique contributions as we continue to transform Nicox into a leading international ophthalmology company." "On behalf of the Board, Nicox's management and its employees I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Bengt Samuelsson and Jorgen Buus Lassen.
