Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Other Events, Financial Stateme


Item 5.02 Departure and Appointment of Directors or Certain Officers.

At a board meeting held on June 19, 2013, the Company's board of directors accepted the resignation of Mr. John Nesbett who resigned as a director of the Company after more than five years of service. Mr. Nesbett explained that, given the increasing demands of his business and the beginning this month of the Company's new fiscal year, now would be an appropriate time to resign. The Company accepted Mr. Nesbett's resignation, acknowledging his dedicated and insightful service to the board and the Company. Mr. Nesbett served on the Company's Nominating Committee with Messrs. William Lavin, Keith DeMatteis and the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Daniel W. Dowe.

The board then appointed David A. Dowe, MD to fill the board seat vacancy created by Mr. Nesbett's resignation. Dr. Dowe is a shareholder, lender and ardent supporter of the Company. He currently has more than $1 million invested in or loaned to the Company. Dr. Dowe has been with Atlantic Medical Imaging for 21 years. He is currently a director of its CT coronary care unit and previously served as CEO for a four-year period. Dr. Dowe will serve the remainder of Mr. Nesbett's term until the Company's next annual meeting of shareholders, where shareholders will vote for directors agreeing to serve another full year term. Dr. Dowe is a brother of the Company's CEO.

In addition to his financial support, Dr. Dowe also introduced director Michael Headley to Artisanal. Mr. Headley subsequently loaned $1 million to the Company, purchased Artisanal's common stock and became a director in 2012 because of his financial commitment.
