Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG) today announced that it has increased the size of its Board of Directors from 10 to 12 and appointed three new independent directors: Kenneth R. Newsome, Gregory A. Pratt, and Carl E. Tack, III. Messrs. Newsome, Pratt and Tack, along with incumbent Board member, George A. Newbill, will be nominated and recommended by Tredegar’s Board for election at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders as Class I directors to serve a three-year term expiring at the 2017 Annual Meeting. R. Gregory Williams, Chairman of Tredegar’s Board, will also be nominated and recommended for election at the 2014 Annual Meeting as a Class II director to serve a one-year term expiring at the 2015 Annual Meeting.

Separately, Tredegar director, Austin Brockenbrough, III, who has served on the Tredegar Board since 1993, will retire from the Board upon the expiration of his current term at the 2014 Annual Meeting. Following the 2014 Annual Meeting, the Tredegar Board will be reduced from 12 to 11 directors.

In addition, the Company also announced today that it has redeemed all of the outstanding preferred stock purchase rights granted pursuant to its Shareholder Rights Plan. A redemption price of $.01 per right will be paid on March 7, 2014, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 3, 2014.

“On behalf of the Tredegar Board, I am pleased to welcome our three new independent directors to Tredegar,” said Greg Williams, Chairman of the Board. “Our Board conducted a thorough, formal search process, which included interviews with several candidates, and determined that Ken, Greg, and Carl will bring valuable and significant finance, operational, and management expertise to Tredegar. We look forward to working with them and to their future contributions to Tredegar.”

Nancy M. Taylor, Tredegar’s president and chief executive officer, said, “We have a strong Board of talented professionals who have and will continue to provide integral support to our management team to further improve Tredegar’s results and enhance value for all shareholders. We are confident that we are taking the right steps to position our businesses for continued growth and success.”
