The company also added Paul Twohig to the BOD and appointed Stacey Rauch as non-exec Chairman of the BOD. This follows a four-month review of strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the Company (with no potential buyers emerging at the end of the confidential sale process)." (2/28/2017)
