Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 aprile 2019

Medison Biotech (1995) Ltd. (“Medison”), which together with its affiliates owns more than 10.4 million shares or 7.3% of Knight Therapeutics, Inc. (TSX:GUD) (“Knight” or the “Company”), today announced that Glass Lewis & Co., LLC, a leading independent proxy advisory firm, has noted the underperformance of Knight, severe conflicts of interest among the directors, management and the Goodman family and the need for change to the Knight Board of Directors. Glass Lewis recommends that shareholders vote for change by using the GOLD proxy card and vote FOR the election of Medison nominees Michael Cloutier and Bob Oliver.Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) has also recently recommended Knight shareholders support change and vote using the GOLD proxy card to elect Elaine Campbell and Christophe Robert Jean.Commenting on the report, Medison said, “The Glass Lewis report exposes the severity of the issues at Knight – inferior returns, lack of an operating business, a failed strategy, conflicted directors and a campaign to try to fool shareholders. The independent report also calls on Jonathan Goodman to divest his conflicted holdings or resign immediately as CEO. In addition, Knight’s Chairman, James Gale, is exposed for related party transactions and conflicts of interest.”Added Medison, “We are very pleased that shareholders are finally able to see, in detail, the issues with this board, but to also have the opportunity to vote for new, skilled directors that have a real plan to create value for all. This is an important time for Knight and we urge shareholders to vote FOR all of the Medison nominees on the GOLD proxy today.”
