Spectra Systems Corporation ("Spectra" or "the Company")
Spectra regrets to announce the passing of Martin Jaskel, an independent non-executive director of the Company, after a short illness. The Board extends its deepest condolences and sympathies to Mr. Jaskel's family and would like to take this opportunity to express its thanks for his significant contribution to the Company.
Mr Jaskel joined the Board of Spectra in 2007, after a distinguished career in the UK stockbroking and financial sectors.
Dr. Nabil Lawandy, Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are all deeply saddened by this tragic news. Martin was a dedicated professional who took his Board responsibilities very seriously and brought a great deal of insight and support to the entire team. On behalf of the Board, and everyone at Spectra, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to his family, friends and colleagues."
A new independent non-executive director based in the UK will be appointed to the Spectra Board in due course.
