The following is a round-up of London-listed company director and manager changes announced on Thursday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Allied Minds PLC - Boston, Massachusetts-based intellectual property commercialisation - Chair Harry Rein won't stand for re-election to the board and will leave by May 31 at the latest. Says Rein will work with Senior Independent Director Bruce Failing and ‘the company's largest shareholders’ on a transition to new independent directors. Back in February, 18% shareholder Crystal Amber Fund Ltd had requisitioned a general meeting to remove Rein. The fund alleged mismanagement of core portfolio holding Federated Wireless Inc and criticized the appointment of Failing as non-executive director, saying he wasn't independent of Rein. On Thursday, in response to Rein's decision, Crystal Amber withdrew its resolutions for the general meeting called for Tuesday next week.
