(d) Effective May 8, 2013, upon the recommendation of the Company's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, the board of directors of Castle Brands Inc., a Florida corporation (the "Company"), increased the size of the board by one directorship and appointed Sergio Zyman to fill the newly-created directorship and to serve until his successor is duly elected and qualified. There were no arrangements or understandings pursuant to which Mr. Zyman was appointed as a director, and there are no related party transactions between the Company and Mr. Zyman reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Zyman, 67, has served as President of Sergio Zyman & Company, a marketing consulting firm, since April 2008. In 1999, Mr. Zyman founded Zyman Group, a marketing consulting firm, and served as its chairman from 1999 until April 2008. From 1993 until 1998, Mr. Zyman served as the chief marketing officer of The Coca Cola Company, where he was also employed from 1979 until 1990. Since October 2012 and January 2012, Mr. Zyman has served as chief executive officer and a director, respectively, of Usell.com, Inc., a publicly-traded technology company focused on creating an online marketplace for selling small consumer electronics. From June 2009 until March 2010, Mr. Zyman served as a director of Tropicana Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Inc., a publicly-traded company that owns and operates the Tropicana Las Vegas hotel and casino. Mr. Zyman's pertinent experience, qualifications, attributes and skills include his marketing experience and the knowledge and experience he has attained through his service as a director of publicly-traded corporations.

As a non-employee director, Mr. Zyman will receive compensation in the same manner as the Company's other non-employee directors, which compensation the Company previously disclosed in its definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on September 11, 2012. Additionally, in connection with Mr. Zyman's appointment to the board, the Company and Mr. Zyman entered into an indemnification agreement (the "Indemnification Agreement") in substantially the same form as the Company has entered into with its existing directors. The form of such Indemnification Agreement was previously filed by the Company as an exhibit to its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 14, 2008. The Indemnification Agreement supplements the Company's Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended, Bylaws and Florida law in providing certain indemnification rights to the indemnitee.
