On June 23, 2022, Kapiljeet Dargan notified CVR Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) of his resignation from service as a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company and the committees of the Board on which he served, including the Compensation Committee and the Environmental, Health & Safety Committee (the “EHS Committee” and collectively with the Compensation Committee, the “Committees”), effective immediately. The resignation of Mr. Dargan from the Board and the Committees was for personal reasons and not the result of any disagreements with the Company or any of its directors, officers, or employees.

On June 28, 2022, the Board reduced the size of the Board from seven to six directors and affirmatively determined that existing directors Jaffrey A. Firestone, whom the Board previously determined to be independent under the applicable rules and regulations of the New York Stock Exchange and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Hunter C. Gary were qualified to serve as members of, and appointed Messrs. Firestone and Gary to serve as members of, the Compensation Committee and the EHS Committee, respectively. Mr. Firestone receives compensation from the Company for service on the Board and certain of its committees but does not receive any other compensatory fees from the Company. There are no transactions involving the Company and Mr. Firestone that would be required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404 of Regulation S-K.
