Board Change


Agriterra, the AIM listed Africa focussed agricultural company, announces that Phil Edmonds has today stepped down as chairman of the Company.


The remaining executive directors have identified a suitable candidate to replace Mr Edmonds as non-executive chairperson and anticipate that this appointment will be formalised in the coming days upon completion of all regulatory approvals; an announcement on this appointment will therefore follow in due course.


Andrew Groves, CEO of the Company stated "Having worked with Phil for many years, I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his commitment and support in our efforts to generate shareholder value in various projects across Africa. I wish him the very best for the future and I know that he will continue to be busy with his charitable activities in Zambia."


Mr Edmonds commented "Having recently reached the egregious pensionable age, my priorities are inevitably changing. I now want to devote more time towards charitable works generally and particularly in my home country of Zambia where I am involved in developing a provincial school for over 450 children. I do however remain fully convinced by the Agriterra vision and as a significant shareholder am fully supportive of the management team that we now have in place."
