BEVERLY, MA and TORONTO, Ontario – February 9, 2021 – Hamilton Thorne Ltd. (TSX-V:HTL), a leading provider of precision instruments, consumables, software and services to the Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), research, and cell biology markets, today announced that it has appointed Feng Han to the Board as an independent director, effective February 15, 2021.

Mr. Han is currently a partner at Pagoda Capital, a private equity firm that focuses on healthcare and technology, based in Beijing, Hong Kong, and New York. Mr. Han has over 25 years of healthcare operational and investment experience in the U.S., Europe, and Asia across healthcare sectors including emerging technology, med-tech, and services. Previously, Mr. Han was Managing Director at Fosun International (00656.HK) where he managed U.S. healthcare investment activities, and Director of Corporate Business Development at Henry Schein (NASDAQ: HSIC) where he led mergers and acquisitions in Asia.

“We are delighted to have Feng join our Board of Directors,” said David Wolf, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As much of the long-term growth in our field will be in Asia, and the Hamilton Thorne growth strategy includes an ongoing merger and acquisitions program, Feng’s extensive experience in global operations and M&A, with particular expertise in Asia, will be invaluable.”

Dean Gendron, a co-founder of Calotto Capital, Hamilton Thorne’s predecessor company, will retire from the Board of Directors, but will continue to stay active with the Company as an advisor to the Board.

David Wolf added, “I would like to personally thank and recognize Dean for his significant and continued contributions to Hamilton Thorne. As the founder and former CEO of Calotto Capital, Dean played a key role in Hamilton Thorne’s listing on the TSX Venture Exchange and in its initial financing rounds. I look forward to continuing to work with Dean as we drive the growth of our Company.”

Mr. Han holds an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, an MS from Michigan State University in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, and a BS from Shandong University in Microbial Engineering.
