Commenting on the results, Sir Brian Richards, Chairman of Lipoxen, said:

“The Board remains excited about the prospects for the Company and has evidenced this confidence by subscribing material sums in the last two fundraisings. The prospects for value delivery are such that, of the total executive directors’ new equity incentives, 60% have vesting hurdle prices set in three equal tranches, of, respectively 20p, 40p and £1 . The executives’ interests are therefore truly aligned with those of all of the Company’s shareholders. “I look forward to updating shareholders when the Company reports upon its full FY2010 results.”
