Executive Summary

Chairman Albert Nichols, MD, and "certain other stockholders" replace three of the seven directors of the company. The new directors are Rock Hankin, a principal in the management consulting firm Hankin & Co.; George Bragg, former vice chairman of Western Digital; and Fredric Roberts, president of F.M. Roberts & Co., an investment banking firm. The trio replace Rosabeth Kanter, PhD, John Potts, Jr., MD, and James Riddell, PhD. Nichols will also seek the replacement of directors Norman Achen and Earl Wright. The other remaining board members are Nichols and Paul Bellamy, chief financial officer and interim CEO ("The Gray Sheet" Jan. 4, p. 17). In a March 1 release, the company said the changes "reflect the implementation of an effective management succession process and will further the development of a successful long-term strategic plan for the company."
