Harvard Bioscience Announces Retirement Of CEO And Appointment Of Interim CEO

HOLLISTON, Mass., May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq:HBIO), a global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of a broad range of tools to advance life science research and regenerative medicine, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed David Green, the Company's President and member of the Board since 1996, as interim Chief Executive Officer following the retirement and resignation of Chane Graziano as Chief Executive Officer and a Director of the Company.

Mr. Graziano commented, "I would like to thank all of the Harvard Bioscience employees worldwide for their commitment and service to the Company over the past 17 years. We have accomplished a great deal together. I have chosen to resign today for personal reasons. We are well on our way in the process of separating Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology from Harvard Bioscience which will unlock significant shareholder value as HART achieves its milestones, and HBIO once again becomes active in acquiring complementary product lines or companies. At 74 years of age, 17 years as CEO of HBIO, and 49 years in the industry, it is the right time for me to retire."

The Board of Directors will immediately commence a search to hire a new Chief Executive Officer.
