On July 1, 2014, Carl C. Icahn resigned from the Board of Directors of American

of CVR Refining, LP, an independent downstream energy limited partnership, since

manufacturing industries, since May 2014, and a director of the Loan
Syndications and Trading Association (LSTA), an organization that develops

claims, in 2011; CVR Refining and CVR Energy are each indirectly controlled by
Mr. Carl Icahn.  Mr. Mather received a B.A. from Rutgers College and attended
the United States Naval Academy.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Mather and any other
persons pursuant to which he was selected as a director of the Company, and he

disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
