The Board will activate its internal and external succession candidate list, with the support of international search firms, and assess potential candidates against the skillset and experience that it feels is most appropriate for the company’s requirements. Jørgen, who has 12 months’ notice in his employment contract, remains fully committed to his role and duties as CEO, until his successor is appointed and brought fully on board to the company.
