While the active efforts that began in January will be suspended, the company will continue to explore opportunities to grow the company’s core businesses, and will consider any opportunities for strategic alternatives that may be brought to the company in the future that the Board believes would be in the best interest of the company and its shareholders.

The company also announced that the company’s President and CEO, Ken Globus, intends to retire by the end of the year, and that the company has begun the process of finding a suitable replacement.

The search process will focus on identifying a leader who shares the Board’s vision for the company, and has the experience and qualifications to accelerate the growth of the company. Mr. Globus has agreed to continue in a consulting role for as long as he is needed.

Mr. Globus has been with the company for 39 years, having joined the company in 1983 as Vice President & General Counsel. He was appointed President in 1988 and became the company’s CEO in 2009 upon the death of the company’s founder, Dr. Alfred R. Globus.
