Malin also appointed healthcare executives Jean-Michel Cosséry and Rudy Mareel as non-executive directors.

The board will undertake an extensive review of the company’s portfolio and development strategy with a view to updating shareholders at its upcoming annual general meeting in September.

The company said this would be followed by a fuller presentation of the company’s outlook and vision at a Capital Markets Day towards the end of the year.
