hVIVO chairman Cathal Friel joined Proactive's Stephen Gunnion to discuss the sale of shares in hVIVO PLC by directors, including himself.

Friel explained his decision to sell a portion of his shares in hVIVO was to accommodate the high demand from major institutions while emphasising his commitment to remain a long-term, supportive shareholder despite this sale.

Friel, who co-founded hVIVO (formerly known as Open Orphan) in 2017, highlighted the company's significant growth and his active involvement in its operations and strategic direction.
