Dye & Durham Provides an Update on Board Matters

TORONTO, March 15, 2024 /CNW/ – Dye & Durham Limited (“Dye & Durham” or the “Company”) (TSX: DND) announced today that, (i) the Chair of the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), Brian Derksen will not seek re-election at the Company’s next annual meeting of shareholders (the “AGM”), and (ii) effective at the Board’s next quarterly meeting (the “Q3 Meeting”) to approve its third quarter financial results, Colleen Moorehead, a current member of the Board, will assume the position of Chair. Mr. Derksen will work closely with Ms. Moorehead over the coming weeks to facilitate an orderly transition in advance of the Q3 Meeting. In addition, in the event that the Company is able to identify a suitable board candidate in advance of its AGM, Mr. Derksen has advised the Board that he is willing to step down from the Board to allow such a candidate to join the Board in advance of the AGM.

“Brian has been a member of our board for over six years, and has played an instrumental role it the growth of Dye & Durham. It has been a privilege working very closely with Brian over this period, and I will greatly miss his invaluable input and stewardship,” said Matthew Proud, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “I am, however, excited for our future, and strongly believe we have found the right person to assume the role of Chair of the Board in Colleen. Colleen has extensive public company board experience, and has been a very strong contributor to the Company since joining the Board. I look forward to working with her as we continue to execute on our strategic plan.”

The Company remains focused on its previously stated goal of deleveraging the business, including the goal of reducing its leverage ratio to less than four times total net debt to adjusted EBITDA.

In addition to the planned changes to the Board, the Company announced today that it has recently received a letter requisitioning a meeting of its shareholders from Engine Capital LP. Dye & Durham is in the process of reviewing and considering the requisition and will comment in due course. The Company welcomes the opportunity to engage with all shareholders, including Engine Capital LP.
