Item 5.02(d). Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers

 

Richard E. Turk was selected by the remaining four directors of the Company to fill the vacancy in the Board of Directors resulting from the unfortunate death of Robert J. Janoff on May 15, 2020. Mr. Turk was also appointed to fill the vacancy on the Audit Committee. Mr. Turk is an independent director as defined under the NASDAQ Rules, thereby assuring that a majority of Fonar Corporation’s directors and all the members of the Audit Committee will be independent.

Because of the lack of time, Mr. Turk will not be on the ballot for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 15, 2020. The first time he will be on the ballot will be for Fonar Corporation’s next Annual Meeting.

Mr. Turk has been and is the Chief Development Officer of PRISM Vision Group since November 2018, where he serves as Chief Development Officer, and previously, he served as Director of Mergers and Acquisitions, Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions and lastly as Chief Growth Officer for Professional Physical Therapy from July 2014 to August 2018.
