USA Technologies Board Member Resigns in Wake of Ethic Violations

USA Technologies, a leader of wireless, cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for self-serve, small-ticket retailing industries, announced that Bradley Tirpak, a former board member, has delivered a notice purporting to nominate himself and six other individuals as director candidates at USA Technologies’ 2012 annual meeting of stockholders. After USAT received Mr. Tirpak’s notice, USAT initiated contact with him in order to explore whether a resolution could be reached that would be in the best interests of USAT and its shareholders. Unfortunately, Mr. Tirpak has indicated that he is only prepared to amicably resolve this matter if we give him and his hand-picked nominees a majority of the USAT board of directors. Under Herbert’s leadership as chairman, the USA Technologies Board of Directors has taken a proactive approach to corporate governance. In November 2011, the independent directors, including Mr. Tirpak, unanimously named Steven D. Barnhart as lead independent director, in accordance with current corporate governance best practices. In addition, three new independent directors have been named to the USA Technologies board since the beginning of 2012. Tirpak voluntarily resigned just last month from the Board of Directors after all other board members requested him to step down due, in part, to conduct they viewed to be detrimental to USA Technologies and prohibited by USAT’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
