Gyrodyne Announces Agreement with Star Equity Fund (9/06/23)

Will Implement Incentive Compensation Enhancements to Better Align with Shareholders; Star Equity Withdraws Nominations and Shareholder Proposal

ST. JAMES, N.Y., Sept. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Gyrodyne, LLC (Nasdaq: GYRO), an owner and manager of a diversified portfolio of real estate properties ("Gyrodyne"), today announced that it has entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") with Star Equity Fund, LP ("Star Equity Fund"), under which Star Equity Fund has withdrawn both its slate of nominees for election at the 2023 annual shareholders meeting and its proposal regarding certain compensation matters, and Gyrodyne will freeze director fees and transition directors from its cash bonus plan to a new stock plan if approved by the shareholders.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gyrodyne agreed to submit for shareholder approval at its 2023 annual shareholders meeting a new stock incentive plan for directors who currently participate in Gyrodyne's cash retention bonus plan. If shareholders approve the proposed stock plan, current director participants in the bonus plan will exchange their benefits for an equivalent value of shares under the new stock plan, with the shares vesting over a three-year period.

The agreement with Star Equity Fund is just one step in Gyrodyne's articulated process of significant shareholder engagement.

Paul Lamb, Gyrodyne's Chairman, stated that "[t]he Board and Management greatly appreciate the valuable input provided by Star Equity and our other shareholders, which will benefit Gyrodyne tremendously as we move forward toward completing our strategic goal of selling our properties and maximizing distributions to our shareholders."

Jeffrey Eberwein, manager of Star Equity Fund, added that, "After recent constructive dialogue with Gyrodyne, we are pleased to have collaborated with the Board on these compensation structure changes to bring better alignment with the interests of all shareholders."

Star Equity has also agreed to certain customary standstill provisions. The full agreement with Star Equity will be filed in a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
