On March 21, 2014, Gareth Turner resigned as a member of the Board of Directors ("the Board") of Noranda Aluminum Holding Corporation (the "Company"), effective March 26, 2014. The Board has chosen Robert J. Kalsow-Ramos, effective March 26, 2014, to serve the remainder of Mr. Turner's term, which continues until the 2015 annual meeting and until Mr. Kalsow-Ramos' successor is duly elected and qualified. Mr. Kalsow-Ramos was designated to serve on the Board by Apollo Investment Fund VI, L.P., Noranda Holdings, L.P. and their respective affiliates, pursuant to a previously disclosed amended and restated securityholders agreement, dated as of May 19, 2010, among the Company, Apollo and management employees of the Company who hold Company common stock and/or other Company equity securities. The agreement provides, among other things, that the Apollo entities have the right to designate a specified number of directors based on the Apollo entities' ownership of Company common stock and the right to designate a replacement for any Apollo designee who has resigned from the Board (Mr. Turner was an Apollo designee).

Mr. Kalsow-Ramos, 28, is an investment professional at Apollo.
