The board of directors (the “Board”) of Lumber Liquidators including the founder, Thomas Sullivan, is a named Defendant in the derivative and securities actions alleging, among other things, that the directors and officers of the Company breached their fiduciary duties in connection with their failure to oversee the operations of the Company as they relate to the manufacture and sale of their wood laminate products, as well as the import and trade of illegally sourced lumber in violation of the Lacey Act. The securities complaint alleges the unlawful insider selling of tens of millions of dollars of Lumber Liquidators stock by Sullivan and other members of the Board during a time when the Company stock was allegedly inflated due to a failure of the Company and its management to properly disclose the activities of and accurate financial information regarding the Company.

A notice has been issued to record holders and beneficiaries as of July 18, 2016. If the stockholder derivative settlement is granted final approval, such holders will release Thomas Sullivan, the Company’s officers and directors and Lumber Liquidators from any and all further damages and such holders will have no further recourse. The derivative settlement does not provide any independent monetary relief to holders. However, the Plaintiffs’ attorneys are seeking five million dollars in attorneys’ fees.
