The slate of director nominees also includes Jeffrey J. Clarke, Jennifer Raab, David Fubini and Lee Roberts, who all joined in 2013, and incumbents William O. Grabe, Fritz Henderson, Gurminder Bedi, Faye Nelson and Bob Paul. As a result of these changes, the Compuware board will continue to be comprised of 11 directors, 10 of whom are independent and 6 have been added in the past twelve months. These directors have the right experience, independence, industry expertise and track record of leadership for our transformed Company.
"The reconstitution of our Board of Directors is an important element of the aggressive strategic transformation that is taking place at Compuware," said Compuware Chairman Gurminder S. Bedi. "While our efforts to reshape Compuware into a high-growth, high-profitability organization that delivers best-in-class shareholder value have been progressing well over the last few years, our actions over the past 12 months have been momentous in scope and execution. Completing any one of the actions we have taken over the last year would be a tremendous achievement; accomplishing them all in this relatively short period of time is a clear indication of our resolve in building a world-class organization and enhancing the value we deliver to shareholders."
The Agreement will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as an Exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K and will be viewable with Compuware's recent filings at www.sec.gov and through the Company's website, www.Compuware.com by selecting the Investor Relations tab.
