Eckoh set for board fireworks

Shareholders in speech recognition technology provider Eckoh are today due to vote at a general meeting on proposals put forward by the firm’s largest shareholder, OCS Management, which is trying to wrest control of the board. OCS has repeatedly criticised the firm’s performance and wishes to elect its own representative, chairman of Tissue Regenix John Samuel, as chairman of the firm. Eckoh, whose current chairman Peter Reynolds is stepping down at the end of the year, is resisting the proposals.
