With regards to ongoing communication in the media and Gusten Danielsson’s statement in Dagens Industri prompted by the fact that he recently chose to resign from his position, the Board of Directors has chosen to address the issue. Both the Board of Directors and management have intended to handle the situation professionally.
There has been speculation in the media about the incident and the former employee has also quickly expressed opinions about the CEO and the leadership of the company. The Board of Directors would like to point out that the company has been careful to follow both stock exchange rules and labor laws in its communication to the market, as the company’s former CFO is still employment obligations until the notice period of six months ends.
“It is obvious that in recent times there have been divided opinions about the strategic direction. Our focus is now on profitability and building of a financially sustainable business backed by an experienced and strong finance department. We are now focused on recruiting an experienced and robust CFO who can assist the company in achieving the goals that the market and shareholders expect and that the company has previously communicated” says Carsten Browall, Chairman of the Board of Directors, BICO.
“Due to speculations, we on the Board of Directors want to make it clear that we are fully united behind the CEO, the management team and the strategy with focus on profitability. The company has great potential and is now entering an important stage for the future,” says Carsten Browall, Chairman of the Board of Directors, BICO
