Change to the Board of Directors and the Management

"The Company and the Board of Directors would like to wish M. Levi all the best in the future" said Michael Perrault, ODESIA's Chairman.

Simon Lepage resigned as Chief Financial Officer to pursue an opportunity with Ceragres, a Montréal privately held importer and distributor of ceramic, porcelain, slate, stone, quartz and mosaics. Nicolas Bonnafous, who currently serves as the Company's Chief Executive Officer, will assume the CFO responsibilities until a permanent successor is named; M. Lepage will remain available to help the Company until then to ensure an orderly transition. "On behalf of our team and our board of directors, we thank Simon for his valuable guidance and leadership over the last 6 years. He lead the finance team and played a major role in implementing our strategies. We wish him the very best in the next phase of his career," said Nicolas Bonnafous. "The decision to leave Odesia was not an easy one," said M. Lepage. "I am satisfied with my contribution to the evolution of the Company since I joined the ODESIA family. I would like to thank Nicolas and the board of directors' members for their trust and support throughout these years. I look forward to hear more about the success of Odesia in the future," concluded M. Lepage.
