Misys FD steps down after boardroom purge

Howard Evans, the finance director of
, will leave the company at the end of its financial
year in May.

Evans was just one of a raft of executives who will leave the software
company, as the group announced a wholesale overhaul of its senior management

Tom Skelton has resigned as chief executive of Misys Healthcare Systems and
Jasper McMahon has quit as corporate development director.

The resignations come after a difficult spell for Misys, which has been
hounded by takeover predators and struggled with revenue recognition problems.

In a statement released alongside the group’s

interim results
for the six months to the end of November
2006, the group said that a search for Evans’s successor was already underway
and that he would stay on to ensure a smooth transition.

Mike Lawrie
, Misys chief executive, said: ‘Tom, Howard and
Jasper have each been with Misys for many years. I and the whole board thanks
them all for their significant contributions to the company and wishes them
every success in the future.’

Misys had flat revenues of £468m for its interim period, up marginally from
£465m over the comparative interim period.
