Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc

("Intelligent Ultrasound" or the "Company")


Formation of Nomination Committee


Intelligent Ultrasound (AIM: MED), the artificial intelligence (AI) based ultrasound software and simulation company, announces the formation of a Nomination Committee of The Board of Directors.


While to date, Intelligent Ultrasound has used the whole board to consider matters of nomination, given the Company's current maturity and the nature of its current board composition, the Company is establishing a more focused Nomination Committee to lead its process for appointments and oversee the development of a diverse pipeline for succession.


As set out in its chosen governance code, the QCA's Corporate Governance Code (the "Code"), the Nomination Committee will seek "to identify the skills, experience, personal qualities and capabilities required for the next stage in the company's development, linking the company's strategy to future changes on the board" 


As required by the Code, details of the Terms of Reference for the Intelligent Ultrasound Nomination Committee can be found on the Company's website www.intelligentultrasoundgroup.com/directors-and-committees


Riccardo Pigliucci, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

"Intelligent Ultrasound is transitioning from the typical Founders and Venture driven company to a more mature public entity and as such it is time to reconfigure our Board to comply with both the independence and the seniority requirement of today's public companies. I look forward to updating investors over time on new independent non-executive director appointments and Board changes as they become effective."
