(b)           Departure of Directors


On February 1, 2021, each of James A. Attwood, Jr. and J. David Thompson informed the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of CoreSite Realty Corporation (the “Company”) that he will not stand for re-election to the Board at the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”). Neither Mr. Attwood’s nor Mr. Thompson’s decision was based on any disagreement with the Company or management. Each of Mr. Attwood and Mr. Thompson will remain a director until the 2021 Annual Meeting.


(d)           Election of Directors


On February 1, 2021, the Board, upon the recommendation of the Board’s Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee and pursuant to the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company, approved an increase to the size of the Board to ten members and elected Michael H. Millegan to fill the vacancy with an initial term expiring at the 2021 Annual Meeting and when his successor is duly elected and qualifies. The Board also appointed Mr. Millegan to serve on the Compensation Committee of the Board, and has determined that Mr. Millegan is “independent” pursuant to the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. Following the 2021 Annual Meeting, the Company expects the size of the Board will be reduced to eight members.


There were no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Millegan and any other persons regarding his election to the Board, nor is he party to any related party transaction required to be reported pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


Mr. Millegan will be compensated for his Board and committee service consistent with the compensation arrangements provided to the Board’s other non-employee directors who are also not employees of The Carlyle Group L.P., which are more fully described in the “2019 Director Compensation” section of the Company’s definitive proxy statement for its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 26, 2020 as supplemented on March 26, 2020 and April 13, 2020.  Mr. Millegan will receive prorated amounts of the annual cash retainer and the annual restricted stock units and dividend equivalents for 2021.  Mr. Millegan will also enter into the Company’s form of indemnification agreement for directors.
