The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Sethu Vijayakumar as a non-executive Director of the Company with effect from 1 September 2018.

Professor Vijayakumar is the Professor of Robotics at the University of Edinburgh and the Director of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics. He is a world renowned roboticist, known for his scientific contribution to the data driven control of several iconic robotic platforms with his latest project involving a collaboration with the NASA Johnson Space Centre on the Valkyrie humanoid robot being prepared for unmanned robotic pre-deployment missions to Mars. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, a judge on BBC Robot Wars and winner of the 2015 Tam Dalyell Prize for excellence in engaging the public with science. Sethu has strong ties with Japan having spent seven years in Tokyo during his PhD and postdoctoral training, still closely collaborates with several R&D firms and multinationals on translational research projects and is a fluent Japanese speaker.

Neil Donaldson, Chairman of Baillie Gifford Shin Nippon commented:

"My fellow Directors and I are delighted to welcome Sethu to the Board. We believe that the Board and Managers will benefit from his deep insight in the area of robotics and technology more broadly. Sethu also brings valuable experience from his links with Japan and his appointment will maintain the Board's depth and breadth."

The appointment of Professor Vijayakumar falls to be ratified by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting of the Company to be held in 2019.
