On March 22, 2020, Mitchell B. Lewis, President and Chief Executive Officer of BlueLinx Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), informed the Company’s Board of Directors that, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on the Company’s business and industry, and the economy in general, he wished to voluntarily reduce his annual base salary of $850,000 to a monthly salary of $1 for a period of six months, beginning April 1, 2020. On the same date, the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors approved Mr. Lewis’s request, and the Company entered into an agreement with Mr. Lewis to provide for such voluntary reduction in his base salary (the “Agreement”). The Agreement also permits Mr. Lewis to extend the period of voluntary base salary reduction beyond six months at his election.

A copy of the Agreement will be filed by the Company as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 28, 2020.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
