(a) Not applicable.

(b) On October 25, 2012, William H. Oyster resigned as Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), President, Principal Executive Officer and as a director of DGSE Companies, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the "Registrant"). Mr. Oyster had no disagreements with the Registrant on any matter related to the Registrant's operations, policies or practices.

(c) On October 25, 2012, the board of directors of the Registrant (the "Board") appointed James J. Vierling to the position of Chief Executive Officer, President and Principal Executive Officer of the Registrant. Since 2009, Mr. Vierling, 50, has been the President of SBT, Inc., DBA Southern Bullion Coin & Jewelry ("SBT"). In this position, Mr. Vierling grew SBT into a 23-location, highly successful operation. During this growth, Mr. Vierling implemented numerous policies, procedures, systems and controls, many of which the Registrant now utilizes. The Registrant acquired SBT on September 14, 2011 in an acquisition from Mr. Vierling, NTR Metals, LLC-the Registrant's largest vendor and largest shareholder-and the other members of SBT (the "SBT Transaction").

Mr. Vierling has been instrumental in advising on the process of assembling the new management team and coordinating the restatement process. Mr. Vierling is also part-owner of Estate Gold and Silver, LLC. Prior to joining SBT, from 2005 until 2009, Mr. Vierling was Chief Marketing Officer and Strategic Planner of A-1 Premium Acceptance, an installment loan company. Mr. Vierling holds a BS in Economics with a minor in Marketing from the University of Missouri. He graduated in 1984.

Mr. Vierling has no family relationship with any officer or director of the Registrant or any of its subsidiaries. Prior to the SBT Transaction, Mr. Vierling was a member of SBT. As a result of the SBT Transaction, Mr. Vierling received a payment of restricted shares of the common stock of the Registrant, as more fully described in the Registrant's Current Report on Form 8-K, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 16, 2011, which is hereby incorporated by reference.

Pursuant to that certain Employment Agreement, dated October 25, 2012, by and between the Registrant and Mr. Vierling, attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, which has an initial term of three years, and in consideration for Mr. Veirling's service, (i) the Registrant shall pay Mr. Vierling a salary of $535,000 per year (his "Annual Salary"); (ii) beginning in 2013, Mr. Vierling shall be eligible for a performance bonus in an amount equal to 25% of his Annual Salary if certain performance targets are met and (iii) Mr. Vierling shall be entitled, so long as he remains an employee of the Registrant, to receive grants of an option to purchase 50,000 shares of the common stock of the Registrant on January 1 of 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively.

(d) On October 25, 2012, the Board also appointed Mr. Vierling to serve as a director of the Registrant and as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Vierling has not been assigned to any committees on the Board at this time. Mr. Vierling was appointed to the Board due to his knowledge of the industry as well as his knowledge of the day-to-day operations of the Registrant and its subsidiary, SBT.
