Departures of a Director and Officer

In July 2014, Louis L. Roquet advised Birks Group Inc. (the “Company”) that he would not stand for re-election to the Company’s board of directors subsequent to his appointment as Chairman of Investissement Québec. On July 28, 2014, Mr. Roquet formally resigned as a director.

On July 29, 2014, Michael Rabinovitch, the Company’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, submitted a notice of resignation for good reason. The notice was provided as a result of the Company’s recently announced corporate restructuring plan to centralize its head office operations in Montreal. Mr. Rabinovitch does not wish to relocate to Montreal and will remain with the Company until October 27, 2014 to ensure a proper transition until his departure date. Mr. Rabinovitch has been part of the Company’s senior management team for 9 years and has successfully led the finance function and many initiatives that have contributed to the Company’s development. The Company has retained an executive search firm to find his replacement.
