NEW YORK & LONDON–()–Tiziana Life Sciences plc (“Tiziana” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: TLSA / AIM: TILS), a biotechnology company focusing on the discovery and development of innovative therapeutics for inflammation and oncology indications, is pleased to announce appointment of Mr. Gregor MacRae to its Board as a Non-executive Director.

Mr. Gregor MacRae holds a Law degree (LLB Hons) from the University of Birmingham. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant (ICAEW) and has been a financial and business strategy adviser to multiple companies. Presently, Gregor is the Senior Partner of Appledore Wealth Management LLP, a London-based high net worth business advisory partnership. Gregor also served as a director of Chiltern Group Plc, an international trust company.

“I am delighted to join the Board of Tiziana and I am looking forward to working with the Company. I believe my experience as an advisor to several international companies over the last 25 years will compliment Tiziana and I am more than happy to join the Company at this exciting time”, said Gregor MacRae.

“We are delighted to have Gregor join our team as he brings rich experience to help and advise companies in their financial and business strategies. His appointment is a step towards reshaping the Board ahead of the Company’s intention to become a solely NASDAQ listed company” said Dr. Shailubhai, CEO & CSO of Tiziana Life Sciences.

Tiziana Life Sciences previously announced that it has appointed advisers in relation to an intended redomicile of the Company to Bermuda, to delist the Company’s ordinary shares from its AIM listing and to cancel its ADR program in order to facilitate listing of its Bermuda common shares on NASDAQ. As a result, Tiziana Life Sciences will only be listed on NASDAQ and all current ADRs and AIM shares will be replaced by NASDAQ shares.

In 2019 Tiziana announced the successful completion of three clinical studies, a phase 2a clinical trial with milciclib in sorafenib-resistant hepatocellular carcinoma, a phase 1 study with nasal administration of Foralumab, a fully human anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody, and a phase 1 clinical trial with oral administration of Foralumab.
