Stockholder Group Has Catalyzed a Significant Refreshment of the Board

The Addition of Nominees Ben Rosenzweig, Chris Hutter and John P. Schauerman to the Board Marks the Beginning of the Road to Transforming Synalloy Into a Best-in-Class Industry Leader

Privet Fund Management LLC (together with its affiliates, "Privet") and UPG Enterprises LLC (together with its affiliates, “UPG” and collectively with Privet, the "Stockholder Group" or “we” or “us”), which collectively own approximately 24.9% of the outstanding common stock of Synalloy Corporation (NASDAQ: SYNL) (“Synalloy” or the "Company"), today commented on the preliminary results of the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). Based on preliminary voting results provided by their proxy solicitor, Saratoga Proxy Consulting LLC, Privet and UPG have sufficient votes to elect three nominees – Ben Rosenzweig, Chris Hutter and John P. Schauerman – to Synalloy’s eight-member Board of Directors (the “Board”).

Ben Rosenzweig, Partner at Privet, commented:

“We are pleased that Privet was able to play a central role in catalyzing a significant and needed refreshment of Synalloy’s Board. By partnering with UPG, we have been able to refresh upwards of 40% of the Board and ensure that major stockholder representatives have a strong voice in the future direction of the Company. Our efforts have also ensured that the Board will now include individuals with significant industrial manufacturing experience, metals and steel expertise, capital allocation and transaction acumen, and successful public company board tenures. Chris, John and I look forward to collaborating with the incumbent directors to strengthen Synalloy and prioritize the best interests of stockholders. We are confident this is just the first step toward our goal of transforming Synalloy into a best-in-class industry leader.”

Chris Hutter, Co-Founder at UPG, commented:

“Stockholders have sent a clear message that they want a new day at Synalloy. Now that the election contest is behind us, I am firmly committed to working alongside my fellow directors to deliver that new day. It is time for us to roll up our sleeves and implement tangible initiatives that can help reduce leverage, incentivize the employee base, enhance operational performance and deliver enduring value for stockholders. The countless hours of planning and strategizing carried out by the Stockholder Group in recent months can now serve as the basis for an actionable and thoughtful dialogue inside the boardroom. Ben, John and I are looking forward to initiating that dialogue and working from the top down to improve Synalloy for the benefit of all stakeholders.”

Final results of the Annual Meeting will be published by the Company once they are certified by the Company’s inspector of elections.
