05 April 2019

Tronox, a global mining and inorganic chemicals company, has completed its re-domiciliation to the United Kingdom from Australia.

The name of the new NYSE-listed parent company is Tronox Holdings plc.

Immediately upon completion of the re-domiciliation, the Company expanded its Board of Directors to 10 members, accepted the retirement of Daniel Blue and appointed two new independent members: Dr Vanessa Guthrie and Mr Stephen Jones.

The new directors will stand for direct election by shareholders for the first time at the annual general meeting of shareholders on May 22, 2019.

The Board also named Tronox Chief Executive Officer, Mr Jeffry N. Quinn, Chairman of the Board and Mr Ilan Kaufthal, Lead Independent Director.

"We appreciate the years of service and leadership Dan Blue has brought to the Board, allowing Tronox to be best positioned to become the preeminent TiO2 producer in the world.

"His insight and counsel will be missed,” said Quinn.

"The accomplished and diverse backgrounds of Vanessa and Steve will allow them to provide critical and valuable counsel to our management team,” added Quinn.

"We believe their addition to our Board will refresh our perspective and better showcase the diversity of our organisation.

"The management team and the Board of Directors look forward to working with our new colleagues to continue creating value for our shareholders.”
