On September 14, 2015, the Board of Directors of CTD Holdings, Inc. (“CTD” or the “Company”) appointed N. Scott Fine to serve as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Fine, age 58, has been a Director of CTD since February 2014 and currently serves as its Chairman of the Board, a position he will continue to hold following his appointment as Chief Executive Officer. From 2004 until 2014, Mr. Fine was a principal at Scarsdale Equities, an investment banking firm located in New York City. Mr. Fine currently sits on the Board of Directors of Kenon Holdings Ltd, a spin-off from Israel Corporation Ltd, and Forward Industries, where he serves as Lead Director.

Mr. Fine was a director of Central European Distribution Corporation, a multi-billion dollar alcohol beverage company, from 1996 until 2014, during which time he led the CEDC Board's successful efforts in 2013 to restructure the company through a pre-packaged Chapter 11 process whereby CEDC was acquired by the Russian Standard alcohol group.

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved the payment of an annual base salary of $400,000 to Mr. Fine for his service as Chief Executive Officer. The Company and Mr. Fine are not currently a party to a written employment agreement but are expected to enter into such an agreement in the near term.
