Mr. Burns’ resignation is a result of a new career opportunity and is not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the Company or any matter relating to the Company's accounting practices or financial statements.

R.

Ken Ferry, Chief Executive Officer, and Stacey Stevens, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, will assume the responsibilities of President and Chief Operating Officer.

“Given Scott’s many years of experience with iCAD as Vice President and Corporate Controller, we believe Scott is well prepared to manage the Company’s financial activity while we conduct a search process for a new CFO,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD. “Stacey and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the rest of our leadership team to ensure strong continuity as we continue to execute on our strategic plans. To that end, we remain on track with our key growth drivers, including potential FDA approval of our breast tomosynthesis cancer detection solution by the end of the third quarter as well as continued progress in signing new skin brachytherapy customer agreements. In addition, we are working to close the potential sale of our MRI-CAD business solutions, which will further strengthen our cash resources. Finally, we have made significant progress in expanding our sales team with the anticipated addition of 5 commercial personnel by the end of the quarter across both segments of our business.”

Mr. Areglado has served as Vice President and Corporate Controller since May 2011.  From 2005 to 2010, Mr. Areglado served as Vice President and Controller at AMICAS, Inc., a NASDAQ-listed image and information management solutions company serving the healthcare industry, where he led the financial statement preparation and accounting operations for the company, including support for the successful acquisition of the company by Merge Healthcare.
