Ms. Crane will serve as a Class I director, Mr. Greisch as a Class II director (replacing Mr. Quella), and Dr. Kreuzburg as a Class III director (replacing Mr. Uwe Röhrhoff, who resigned effective February 4, 2018), with terms expiring at the Company’s 2018, 2019, and 2020 annual meetings of shareholders, respectively. The Board also appointed Mr. Greisch as Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee, replacing Mr. Jack Stahl, also with immediate effect.
Ms. Crane, 58, is currently a member of the board of directors of each of Edge Therapeutics, Inc., Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited, and Zealand Pharma A/S, and has previously served as a director of Unilife Corporation, Cipher Pharmaceuticals, MELA Sciences, Inc., Epocrates Inc., and Targanta Therapeutics. Ms. Crane retired in 2014 from MELA Sciences, Inc., where she served as President and Chief Executive Officer beginning in 2013. From 2011 to 2013, she was a Partner and Head of Commercialization at Appletree Partners and, from 2008 to 2011, served as Chief Executive Officer and President of Epocrates Inc. From 2002 to 2008, Ms. Crane served in several senior executive positions at the Johnson & Johnson Group of Companies, ending as Company Group Chairman, OTC and Nutritional Group. From 1982 to 2002, she was at Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, ending her tenure there as President, U.S. Primary Care. Ms. Crane received her M.B.A. from Kent State University and her B.A. in Communications and English from the State University of New York at Oswego.
Mr. Greisch, 62, has announced his intention to retire later this year from his current position as President and Chief Executive Officer of Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc., a position that he has held since 2010. Prior to his current position, Mr. Greisch was President International Operations for Baxter International, Inc., a position he held beginning in 2006. During his seven-year tenure with Baxter, he also served as Baxter’s Chief Financial Officer and as President of Baxter’s BioScience division. Before his time with Baxter, Mr. Greisch was President and Chief Executive Officer for FleetPride Corporation in Deerfield, Illinois, an independent after-market distribution company serving the transportation industry.

Dr. Kreuzburg, 58, has been consulting in the healthcare sector since retiring from Bayer AG in 2009 after 19 years of service in a variety of roles, including serving as Head of the Bayer Schering Pharma Europe/Canada unit of Bayer Healthcare from 2007 to 2008 and as Head of the Pharma Primary Care/International Operations unit of Bayer Healthcare from 2006 to 2007. She also held roles in the Strategic Planning and Central


Research groups. Dr. Kreuzburg is currently a member of the board of directors of Tecan Trading AG of Switzerland as well as chairwoman of its compensation committee and has previously served as a director of Freedom Innovations LLC. She received her Ph.D. and Bachelor’s degrees in Physical Chemistry from Duisburg University in Germany.
Each of the New Directors will receive the Company’s standard compensation provided for service on the Board to all members of the Board who are not employees of the Company. This compensation currently includes an annual cash retainer of $100,000, payable in quarterly installments in arrears, and an annual grant of restricted stock units having a fair market value equal to $140,000. The restricted stock units vest in full after one year of service and are subject to accelerated vesting in the event of a “change of control.” The initial cash retainer and restricted stock unit award to be received by the New Directors will be pro-rated based on the portion of the Company’s current fiscal year during which they are expected to serve.
In addition, pursuant to the Company’s stock ownership policy, each of the New Directors will be required to own shares of our common stock in an amount equal to five times the annual cash retainer. For purposes of this requirement, a director’s holdings include shares held directly or indirectly, individually or jointly, shares underlying vested equity-based awards, and shares held under a deferral or similar plan. Each director is also required to retain 100% of the shares received following exercise of options or upon settlement of vested restricted stock units (net of any shares used to satisfy any applicable tax withholding obligations) until the minimum holding level is reached.
