(d) On June 12, 2014, the Board of Directors of Sigma Designs, Inc. ("Sigma") elected Tor R. Braham to serve as a member of the Board of Directors (the "Board"). Prior to joining Sigma, Mr. Braham served as Managing Director and Global Head, Technology, Mergers and Acquisitions for Deutsche Bank Securities, an international financial service group, from 2004 until 2012. From 2000 to 2004, he served as Managing Director and Co-head, West Coast U.S. Technology, Mergers and Acquisitions for Credit Suisse First Boston, an international financial services group. Prior to that, Mr. Braham was an investment banker with UBS Securities and a lawyer at a prominent Silicon Valley law firm. Mr. Braham earned a B.A. degree from Columbia College and a J.D. degree from New York University School of Law. Mr. Braham currently serves a member of the Board of Directors at NetApp, Inc.

Mr. Braham has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction or proposed transaction required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K or Item 5.02(d) of Form 8-K.

In connection with his appointment, Mr. Braham was granted a restricted stock unit award representing 50,112 shares of Sigma's common stock, which award will vest over a two-year period, subject to Mr. Braham's continued service on the Board. This award will become fully vested upon a change in control of Sigma. Mr. Braham will also participate in Sigma's standard cash compensation program for non-employee directors.
