Shares of Iconic Labs PLC (LON: ICON), a British digital media management company, soared 88.7% after appointing three new directors to its board as it rebuilds the company after the former management team resigned.

The media company appointed Brendan O'Mahony, a certified accountant and a former partner at EY’s Polish subsidiary; Willem van der Meer, an investment banker and David Štybr, a business development expert.

Willem van der Meer is also a partner at Ott Ventures, the company that claimed to own 5.73 billion shares in Iconic Labs before demanding massive changes at the firm, which led to the departure of the previous management team.
