Devon Energy Announces Board Change
Devon Energy Corp. (NYSE: DVN) announced today that D. Martin
Phillips, a managing partner of the EnCap Investments, L.P.
(EnCap), will resign from the company’s board of directors
effective immediately. The resignation is following a reduction in
EnCap’s holdings in Devon through disposition transactions that
occurred on Feb. 22, 2021.
The resignation is consistent with the provisions of a
shareholder agreement that permitted EnCap to designate a director
if a 10 percent ownership threshold of Devon's outstanding common
stock was maintained.
“My tenure on the Devon and legacy WPX board has been a great
experience and I am proud to have played a role in the development
of both companies,” commented Mr. Phillips. “I hold Devon’s board
of directors and management team in the highest regard, I am
confident in the company’s strategic plan and I look forward to
continuing my relationship with Devon as a shareholder.”
“Marty has been a key member of our board and we are deeply
grateful for the valuable insight and keen business acumen he has
contributed to optimize our strategy and decision-making,” said
Rick Muncrief, president and CEO. “On behalf of the full board, I
would like to thank Marty for his dedicated service to Devon and
wish him success in his future endeavors.”
Mr. Phillips joined Devon’s board of directors in January 2021
by way of the company’s merger with WPX Energy. Mr. Phillips became
a member of WPX Energy’s board in 2020. Following his departure,
Devon will have 11 directors on the board, possessing extensive
experience leading public and private companies, with diversified
skill sets cultivated across a broad set of industries.
