CSC’s chairman and CEO, Mike Laphen, is to retire within a year, reports ComputerworldUK.com.
His announcement comes at a time when the company faces some of the toughest challenges in its history with a US SEC regulatory investigation, an accounting controversy and a legal challenge over its statements in relation to its work on the NPfIT.
Anthony Miller, chairman of analysts TechMarket View, said CSC has undergone several “meaning of life reviews” as contract margins have been squeezed.
CSC has yet to sign a new agreement with the Department of Health over the future of Lorenzo and its NPfIT work. CSC’s share price today is a little above its five-year low.
