Uniphar plc (the "Company") wishes to announce that, in line with the Board's stated objective to transition to a Board composition that meets the independence requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code within three years from IPO, Mark Moran will step down from the Board on 1 September 2020. Mark joined the Board as a representative of the Sisk Family on the acquisition of Sisk Healthcare Group in 2018 and resigns in line with the appointment rights granted in connection with that acquisition. Ger Penny, also appointed as a Sisk Family representative at the time of the Sisk acquisition, will continue on the board as a Non-Executive Director.



Maurice Pratt, Chairman of Uniphar plc, commented:

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for the support and commitment he has shown to the Board over the last two years. Mark's experience and insights were a great support to the Board in preparing for, and in the months since, the successful IPO of Uniphar in 2019, and we wish him well with his future endeavours."
