Currently, the company is focused on improving the organisational structure to enhance its financial and operating performance while restoring value for all shareholders.
In the recent extraordinary general meeting, Smiles implemented some crucial management changes on the approval of its majority shareholders. The change saw the exit of Directors Mike Timoney and David Herlihy when other two senior directors, Mr David Usasz and Ms Tracy Penn, were supported by shareholders to remain on the Board.
Mr Timoney and Mr David are insisting for another EGM and shareholders associated with them are demanding identical resolutions for Mr Usasz and Mr Penn. However as per the company, Voting was independently scrutinised by Smilesâ share registry and Mr Timoney and Mr David have been requested to cease their defamatory campaign. The set of events has led to some bit of turbulence which the company is now looking at.
