Dana Incorporated Announces Two Appointments to Board of Directors, Reaches Agreement with Icahn Capital

01/10/2022 | 04:32am EDT

Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Icahn Capital, whereby Brett Icahn and Gary Hu, both of whom are portfolio managers at Icahn Capital, will join the Dana Board of Directors, effective immediately, and stand for election at the company's 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

'Dana has made significant advancements as a forward-thinking mobility company, and we appreciate Icahn Capital's support and constructive engagement as we continue to execute our strategic plan,' said James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO. 'Our ongoing board refreshment reflects a commitment to best-in-class corporate governance, and this agreement brings a direct shareholder perspective to the boardroom to support our long-term goal of sustainable value creation. We look forward to working with Brett and Gary to advance our efforts.'

Carl Icahn said, 'Since our initial investment in Dana over a year ago, we have had productive conversations with Jim and recognize the progress the company has made, even in the face of the current operating challenges. We believe Dana's management has positioned the company to capture significant market opportunities ahead, especially with respect to electrification in mobility.'

With these appointments and the previously announced addition of Ernesto M. Hernandez, the board will temporarily expand to 12 directors. Following the retirement of Raymond E. Mabus, Jr., at the 2022 Annual Meeting, consistent with the company's director retirement policy, the board will be composed of 11 directors, 10 of whom are independent.

In connection with today's announcement, Icahn Capital and its affiliates, which collectively own approximately 9.9 percent of Dana's outstanding stock, have agreed to support the company's slate of director nominees, which will include Hu and Icahn, at Dana's 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholder. Icahn Capital has also agreed to other customary standstill provisions.
