On April 22, 2022, Todd Hannigan, a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Piedmont Lithium Inc. (the “Company”), informed the Company of his decision to retire from the Board.  Mr. Hannigan has been a long-term shareholder of Piedmont and joined the Board in February 2021 to enable the Company to meet the requirement to have an Australian resident director while the Company was domiciled in Australia.  Given Piedmont’s redomiciliation to the United States and Mr. Hannigan’s other substantial business commitments, he has chosen to retire from the Board effective April 22, 2022.  The Company is pleased that Mr. Hannigan will continue his service to Piedmont by serving as a Technical Advisor, and he is expected to join our Technical Advisor Council when it is formally convened later in 2022.
 
The Company’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has developed policies and objectives with respect to the future evolution of our Board, and additions to the Board are expected in the coming months.
