On March 6, 2014, Epiq Systems, Inc. ("Epiq") announced that Elizabeth M. Braham notified Epiq of her resignation from her positions as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary of Epiq, effective as of March 14, 2014. Ms. Braham's decision to resign from her positions with Epiq was not due to any disagreement with Epiq on any matter relating to Epiq's operations, policies or practices.

In connection with Ms. Braham's resignation, Epiq and Ms. Braham are expected to enter into an Executive Resignation Agreement and General Release of Claims dated March 14, 2014 (the "Resignation Agreement").

Epiq and Ms. Braham are also expected to enter into an Executive Consulting Advisory Agreement, dated March 14, 2014 (the "Advisory Agreement"). Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, Ms. Braham will provide up to 16 hours per month of consulting services to Epiq from March 17, 2014 through the end of November 2014 for an aggregate amount of $75,000 unless the agreement is otherwise terminated by either party for Cause as defined therein. Pursuant to the Resignation Agreement, and following the Effective Date and subject to certain conditions, Ms. Braham will be entitled to receive from Epiq the following payments and benefits, among others: (i) a lump sum severance payment of $1,170,000 (less withholding for federal tax, state tax and other standard deductions), which amount will be payable within five business days following the Effective Date; (ii) a lump sum severance payment of $1,440,625 (less withholding for federal tax, state tax and other standard deductions), which amount will be payable on or before December 31, 2014 in connection with the execution by Ms. Braham and delivery to Epiq of a release on or after December 1, 2014 and no later than December 10, 2014; (iii) all right, title and interest in and to certain computer equipment; and (iv) exclusive use of an automobile leased and paid for by Epiq through the termination of the lease (or an earlier lease buy-out, at Epiq's discretion) and ownership of the automobile thereafter.

The foregoing descriptions of the Resignation Agreement and the Advisory Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of each of the Resignation Agreement and the Advisory Agreement, which will be filed as exhibits to Epiq's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed by Epiq with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the period ending March 31, 2014.
