Genasys Announces Director Resignation Due to New Employment Requirements

SAN DIEGO, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in protective communications, today announced that Scott Anchin, a member of its Board of Directors and Audit Committee Chair, has notified the Company that he has entered into a new employment agreement with a multi-national investment firm which requires him to resign from all outside Board roles. As a result, Mr. Anchin has informed the Company that he will resign from its Board of Directors effective May 31st.

Reflecting, Mr. Anchin said "Over my past 8 years with Genasys, it has been my honor to collaborate and work with the executive team and my fellow Board members.   When I joined Genasys' Board of Directors, the Company was focused solely on LRADs. Under Richard's leadership, we developed our SaaS platform, acquired four companies, and expanded our product offerings. The Company is now in its strongest position ever, with a software business on track to more than double and a hardware business that, based on recent wins, is well positioned to reach levels never seen before. I look forward to seeing Genasys' success unfold."

Genasys CEO, Richard Danforth commented, "Scott has been an integral part of our Board and we value his leadership and advice. His engagement with the Company has been consistently professional, highly constructive and always focused on the interests of the shareholders that he represents. We wish him success in the next chapter of his career."

Genasys has engaged Egon Zehnder, a global leadership advisory firm to assist the Board in identifying candidates to replace Mr. Anchin on the Board of Directors.
