“Dear Board members:

After almost three years on the Board and following the announcement of the merger between Startek and Aegis, I have decided it is the right time for me to step down and relinquish my duties as a member of the Board in order to focus on my other commitments and responsibilities at Engine Capital. I have truly enjoyed working with each of you. I am particularity grateful for all the accomplishments Chad and his management team have made over the last few years - growing and diversifying the business, and increasing its profitability. This merger with Aegis (which I am very excited about) is the next logical step for Startek as it further diversifies the business and puts it on a path of sustainable and profitable growth.
