Spark Energy, Inc. ("Spark" or the "Company") announced that Amanda (Mandy) Bush has been appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors, effective August 27, 2019, as an independent director.
She will serve as a Class III director, and will join the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. She will also serve as Chair of the Audit Committee.
Mandy Bush is the Chief Financial Officer of Azure Midstream Energy, LLC. Prior to joining Azure, she was the Chief Financial Officer at Marlin Midstream Partners, LP, leading their successful IPO in 2013. Prior to being the CFO of Marlin, Ms. Bush held various finance and accounting roles within the energy industry.
Spark reported that, "As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 18, 2019, James G. Jones II resigned from the Board of the Company effective June 13, 2019 to serve as Chief Financial Officer of the Company, resulting in the Audit Committee of the Board consisting of only two independent directors. The Company received a notification from the NASDAQ Global Select Market ('NASDAQ') on June 17, 2019 that it did not satisfy NASDAQ Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A), which requires the Company’s Audit Committee to consist of at least three independent directors. The Company believes that the appointment of Ms. Bush as an independent director to serve as the third member of the Audit Committee will allow the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A)."
