Executive Transformation: iAnthus Capital Announces CFO Resignation and Appointment of Interim Successor

NEW YORK and TORONTO, March 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - iAnthus Capital Holdings, Inc. (referred to as "iAnthus" or the "Company"), a distinguished presence in the regulated cannabis market of the United States, and publicly traded under the symbols (CSE: IAN) (OTCQB: ITHUF), today communicated a significant shift in its executive team. The noteworthy announcement comes with the disclosure of Philippe Faraut’s forthcoming departure from his role as Chief Financial Officer.

Philippe Faraut, who has been at the financial helm since November 2022, is set to resign from his position as Chief Financial Officer as well as from his associated roles within the Company's subsidiaries and affiliates, as of April 5, 2024, a date that has been formally designated as the "Resignation Date." His tenure at iAnthus has seen him contribute to the Company's growth and financial health.

"On behalf of the Company, we would like to thank Philippe for his contributions and commitment to iAnthus since 2022," expressed Mich Mathews-Spradlin, Chairwoman of the Board. "We wish him the best in all his future endeavors."

The Company has articulated its gratitude towards Mr. Faraut, acknowledging his dedicated service and his role in advancing the Company's fiscal strategy. His expertise has been invaluable, and thus his departure is met with both understanding and a notable sense of loss for the iAnthus team.

However, iAnthus ensures continuity and stability as Mr. Faraut transitions to a consulting position briefly post his formal resignation, providing his expertise for a month thereafter. In alignment with this, iAnthus has strategically appointed Justin Vu as Interim Chief Financial Officer, taking the reins effective as of the Resignation Date. Vu joined the iAnthus team in early 2023 with a rich past as the Senior Vice President of Finance and has since been an integral part of the Company's financial leadership. His credentials are further bolstered by his previous tenure as a financial consultant and his roles within a prominent US-based media and entertainment conglomerate.

As Justin Vu assumes his interim position, the shores of stability appear to be within sight for iAnthus. The Company is actively embarking on a diligent search for a permanent CFO, raising the bar high to attract a candidate with not only a robust financial acumen but also a visionary approach and an unwavering dedication to the Company's progress and evolution.
