Departure of Directors
On February 7, 2022, one of the Company’s directors Gen. H.R. McMaster informed the Board that he would be retiring from the Board with effect from the next Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”). Gen. McMaster’s term would otherwise have expired at the Annual Meeting in 2024. He served as an advisory board member for the Company for three years and then as a director. Gen. McMaster conveyed that his decision was not the result of any disagreement with the Company. Gen. McMaster will continue to serve as a director until the date of the Annual Meeting. We look forward to continuing to benefit from his wisdom as an advisor, particularly as we continue to develop NRX-101 for suicidal depression and PTSD. The Board expressed its appreciation for Gen. McMaster’s service to the Company.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
