BACKGROUND
Explanatory Note
Target Hospitality Corp. (“Target Hospitality”, the “company”, “we” or “us”) is a holding company. We have no direct operations, and our principal asset is our equity interest in Topaz Holdings LLC (“Holdings”), which is the owner of Arrow Bidco, LLC, which is the owner of each of Target Logistics Management, LLC (“Target”) and RL Signor Holdings, LLC (“Signor”) and each of their respective subsidiaries.
We are an “emerging growth company” under applicable federal securities laws, and therefore are permitted to take advantage of certain reduced public company reporting requirements. As an emerging growth company, we provide in this proxy statement the scaled disclosure permitted under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, as amended (the “JOBS Act”), including the compensation disclosures required of a “smaller reporting company,” as that term is defined in Rule 12b-2 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). In addition, as an emerging growth company, we are not required to conduct votes seeking approval, on an advisory basis, of the compensation of our named executive officers (“NEOs”), or the frequency with which such votes must be conducted.
We will remain an emerging growth company until the earliest of  (i) the last day of the fiscal year in which we have total annual gross revenues of  $1.07 billion or more; (ii) the last day of the fiscal year following the fifth anniversary of completion of our initial public offering, which we completed in January 2018; (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in nonconvertible debt during the preceding three-year period; or (iv) the date on which we are deemed to be a large accelerated filed under the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) rules.
2019 Business Combination
Platinum Eagle Acquisition Corp. (“Platinum Eagle”), our legal predecessor, was originally incorporated as a special purpose acquisition company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, or other similar business combination with one or more target businesses. On March 15, 2019 (the “Combination Date”), we completed a transaction in which we acquired the businesses of Target and Signor (the “Business Combination”). In conjunction with the Business Combination:

we indirectly acquired Signor and Target and each of their respective subsidiaries for an aggregate purchase price of  $1.311 billion, of which $563,136,728 was paid in cash and the remaining $747,863,272 was paid in shares of our common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (our “common stock”);

Arrow Holdings S.à r.l (“Arrow”) and Algeco Investments B.V. (“Algeco Investments”), which are investment holding companies controlled by TDR Capital LLP (“TDR Capital”), acquired a controlling interest in our voting securities. Arrow received 49,100,000 shares of our common stock and Algeco Investments received 25,686,327 shares of our common stock, in each case as partial consideration in the Business Combination; and

our company changed its name to Target Hospitality Corp., reconstituted its Board of Directors (“Board”), and appointed new management. In reconstituting our Board, our former sponsor, Platinum Eagle Acquisition LLC (“PEAL”), and TDR Capital appointed all seven members of our Board pursuant to the terms of  (i) the agreement and plan of merger, dated as of November 13, 2018, as amended on January 4, 2019, by and among Platinum Eagle, Signor Merger Sub LLC, Holdings and Arrow, and (ii) the agreement and plan of merger, dated as of November 13, 2018, as amended on January 4, 2019, by and among Platinum Eagle, Holdings, Arrow Bidco LLC and Algeco Investments. Additional information regarding the Business Combination and the transactions related thereto is available in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 22, 2021.

Board Structure
Our Board consists of eight members. It is divided into three classes (Class I, Class II, and Class III) with staggered three-year terms and one class of directors elected each year. The division of our Board into staggered classes may delay or prevent a change of control of our management or our company.
Our Board has three standing committees: an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee, and a Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
Director Nominations
Process for Nominating Directors
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee solicits and receives recommendations for potential director candidates from stockholders, management, directors and other sources. The Board will select nominees based on independence, reputation, integrity, diversity of experience and background, depth of business experience, familiarity with national and international business matters, familiarity with the company’s industry, other professional commitments, the ability to exercise sound judgment, and other relevant factors.
[MISSING IMAGE: tm212514d1-bc_agepn.jpg]
[MISSING IMAGE: tm212514d1-bc_directorpn.jpg]
The Board values the full breadth of diversity of personal factors and professional characteristics and believes that board diversity of all types provides significant benefits to the company. The Board recently updated the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee Charter to specifically focus on its desire to seek diverse Board membership that is representative of our business, stockholders, customers, and employees. In order to build and maintain a group of directors that provides effective oversight of the management of the company, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers the Board’s overall composition when considering director candidates, including whether the Board has an appropriate combination of varied professional experience, skills, knowledge, viewpoints and personal backgrounds in light of the company’s current and expected future needs.
Over the past year, members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee have continued their outreach to potential director candidates with a diversity of personal factors and professional characteristics that could be valuable additions to our Board and have undertaken to include women and persons with ethnically or racially diverse backgrounds in each pool from which we select new director nominees. On May 20,2020, we announced the appointment of Joy Berry to our Board as a Class III Director. Our Board and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee remain committed to actively seeking out candidates who strengthen the diversity of viewpoints on our Board.
Stockholder Nominations
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers unsolicited inquiries and director nominees recommended by stockholders in the same manner as nominees from all other sources. Recommendations should be sent to the Corporate Secretary at 2170 Buckthorne Place, Suite 440, The Woodlands, Texas 77380. Stockholders may nominate a director candidate to serve on the Board by following the procedures described in our bylaws.

Audit Committee
The Board has determined that each Audit Committee member is independent pursuant to the applicable rules of the SEC and Nasdaq. The Board has determined that each member of the Audit Committee possesses the necessary level of financial literacy required to enable him to serve effectively as an Audit Committee member, and more than one member qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” within the meaning stipulated by the SEC including our designated Financial Expert, Martin L. Jimmerson. No Audit Committee member serves on more than three audit committees of public companies, including our Audit Committee.
The Audit Committee’s primary responsibilities are to monitor (i) the integrity of our financial reporting process and internal control system; (ii) the independence and performance of our independent registered public accounting firm; and (iii) the disclosure controls and procedures established by management. In discharging these responsibilities, the Audit Committee, among other things: selects, oversees and retains our independent registered public accounting firm; reviews and discusses the scope of the annual audit and written communications by our independent registered public accounting firm to the Audit Committee and management; oversees our financial reporting activities, including the annual audit and the accounting standards and principles we follow; approves audit and non-audit services by our independent registered public accounting firm and applicable fees; reviews and discusses our periodic reports filed with the SEC; reviews and discusses our earnings press releases and communications; oversees our internal audit activities; oversees our disclosure controls and procedures and reviews our internal controls over financial reporting; reviews and discusses risk assessment, including cybersecurity, and risk management policies and practices; oversees the administration of our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and other ethics policies; reviews, discusses and approves insider and affiliated person transactions; and administers the policy with respect to the hiring of former employees of our independent registered public accounting firm. In addition, the Audit Committee performs an annual self-evaluation, reviews its charter and recommends changes to the to the Board for approval, and prepares the audit committee report required to be included in our annual proxy statement.
Compensation Committee
The Board has determined that all Compensation Committee members are non-employee directors and, except for Stephen Robertson, qualify as independent directors. In making its determination, the Board has considered all factors specifically relevant to determining whether a director has a relationship with the company that would materially impair the director’s ability to make independent judgments about executive officer compensation, including: (i) the source of such director’s compensation; (ii) any consulting, advisory or other compensatory fees paid by the company to the director; and (iii) any other affiliations the director has with the company and its affiliates, including engagements by clients that are companies or affiliates of companies for which members of the Compensation Committee serve as officers or directors. Stephen Robertson served as a non-independent member of the Compensation Committee pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5605(d)(2)(B) due to his familiarity with the industry and the company’s subsidiaries’ historical executive compensation decisions, policies and practices, and, consistent with the requirements of this rule, Mr. Robertson ceased being a member of the Compensation Committee effective as of March 15, 2021.
The Compensation Committee and the Board solicit recommendations from our CEO and other officers regarding compensation matters, including the compensation of executive officers and key employees other than our CEO. They assist the Compensation Committee by providing information such as financial results, short-term and long-term business and financial plans, and strategic objectives, as well as their views on compensation programs and levels. Only members of the Compensation Committee vote on matters before that Committee.
The primary responsibilities of the Compensation Committee include: reviewing non-executive director compensation and recommending changes to the Board for approval; approving our CEO’s compensation; reviewing and approving the compensation of other executive officers; administering our equity-based compensation plans and approving awards thereunder; establishing objective performance goals, individual award levels and operative and subjective performance measures, and overseeing all aspects of executive officer incentive compensation; reviewing and approving employment, consulting and other contracts, or arrangements with present and former executive officers; reviewing the compensation disclosures in the annual proxy statement and annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC and discussing the disclosures with management; performing annual performance evaluations of our executive officers; performing an annual self-evaluation; overseeing the company’s human capital function, including as relates to culture, management development and diversity; reviewing its charter

and recommending changes to the Board for approval; and submitting all equity-based compensation plans, executive officer compensation plans and material revisions to such plans to a vote of the Board, and to a vote of stockholders if required.
Compensation Consultant
Under its charter, the Compensation Committee is authorized to select, retain and direct the activities, and terminate the services, of compensation advisors, as well as approve fees and expenses of such advisors. The Compensation Committee retained Frederic W. Cook & Company (“FW Cook”) as its independent compensation consultant. The Compensation Committee periodically evaluates FW Cook’s independence from management, taking into consideration all relevant factors, including the independence factors specified in SEC regulations and Nasdaq listing rules.
Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation
No member of the Compensation Committee serves as, or has in the prior three years served as, one of our officers or employees at any time, except that Eli Baker served as our President, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary prior to the Business Combination. None of our executive officers serves as, or in the prior three years has served as, a member of the board or compensation committee of any other company that has an executive officer serving as a member of our Board or the Compensation Committee.
Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee
The Board has determined that all Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee members are non-employee directors and, except for Gary Lindsay, qualify as independent directors. Gary Lindsay served as a non-independent member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5605(e)(3) due to his familiarity with the industry and the company’s subsidiaries’ historical corporate governance and nominations decisions, policies and practices, and, consistent with the requirements of this rule, Mr. Lindsay ceased being a member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee effective as of March 15, 2021.
The primary responsibilities of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee include: identifying and qualifying the annual slate of directors for nomination by the Board; considering director candidates recommended by securityholders; assessing the independence of our directors; identifying and qualifying the candidates for Chairman of the Board and for membership and chairmanship of the Committees for appointment by the Board; identifying and qualifying candidates to fill vacancies occurring between annual meetings of stockholders for election by the Board; monitoring compliance with, and reviewing proposed changes to, our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Committee charters, and other policies and practices relating to corporate governance for submission to the Board for approval; monitoring and reviewing responses to stockholder communications with non-management directors together with the Chairman of the Board; overseeing the process for director education and Board and Committee self-evaluations; overseeing the process relating to succession planning for our CEO and other executive officer positions; reviewing its charter and recommending changes to the Board for approval; and performing an annual self-evaluation.
As part of its consideration of director succession, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will take into account the appropriate personal factors and professional characteristics required of board members, which may include diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, age, education, cultural background, business skills, financial literacy, demonstrated leadership, qualifications and professional experiences, and the extent to which the candidate would fill present and expected needs on the Board.

(1)
Members were compensated for their service on a special committee of the Board convened in November 2020.
As previously disclosed, effective April 1, 2020, we implemented the Director Retainer Reduction Equity Award Program (the “Director Retainer Program”) in light of strategic and operational changes and the economic volatility from the impact of COVID-19. Pursuant to the Director Retainer Program, we reduced the cash retainer paid to each non-employee director by 20% for the period from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 and issued awards of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) to each non-employee director with a value equal to his or her reduced director fees, which awards vest on the dates that the reduced director fee payments would have been made. On October 1, 2020, we entered into agreements (the “Director Retainer Program Termination Agreements”) with each of our non-employee directors following the decision by the Compensation Committee to terminate the Director Retainer Program. Pursuant to the Director Retainer Program Termination Agreements, effective October 1, 2020, we recommenced payment of 100% of the director fees of each non-employee director, and each non-employee director agreed to forfeit RSUs awarded to him or her pursuant to the Director Retainer Program scheduled to vest on or after October 1, 2020.
We remain committed to ensuring that our compensation structure for our non-executive directors appropriately adjusts for varying levels of responsibilities and time commitments and that the overall annual compensation package enables us to attract and retain qualified and experienced individuals to serve as non-executive directors and to align our director’s interests with those of our stockholders.

Pursuant to the Director Retainer Program, we reduced the cash retainer paid to each non-employee director by 20% for the period from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 and issued awards of RSUs to each non-employee director with a value equal to his or her reduced director fees, which awards vested on the dates that the reduced director fee payments would have been made. On October 1, 2020, we entered into the Director Retainer Program Termination Agreements with each of our non-employee directors following the decision by the Compensation Committee to terminate the Director Retainer Program and recommenced payment of 100% of the director fees of each non-employee director, and each non-employee director agreed to forfeit RSUs awarded to him or her pursuant to the Director Retainer Program scheduled to vest on or after October 1, 2020.
Board Election & Leadership Structure
Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast for such director. As detailed further below, if an incumbent director does not receive a greater number of  “for” votes than “withheld” votes, then such director must tender his or her resignation to the Board for its consideration.
The Board’s policy is that the Chairman of the Board is a non-employee director. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Board believe that this leadership structure is the most appropriate one for the company at this time, as it allows our CEO to focus on the day-to-day management of the business and on executing our strategic priorities, while allowing the Chairman to focus on leading the Board, providing its advice and counsel to the CEO, and facilitating the Board’s independent oversight of management.
The Board’s Role in Risk Oversight
The Board oversees the risk management of our company. In particular, the Board is responsible for monitoring and assessing strategic risk exposure, including a determination of the nature and level of risk appropriate for us. The Board administers its oversight of our material risks directly through the Board as a whole, as well as through the committees of Board. The Audit Committee, in addition to overseeing financial report and control risks, is responsible for reviewing and discussing risk assessment and risk management policies and practices. Further, the Audit Committee receives regular updates on cybersecurity risks from management and reviews how we are executing against our cybersecurity framework. From time to time, the Audit Committee may receive updates on efforts regarding data loss prevention, regulatory compliance, data privacy, threat and vulnerability management, cyber-crisis management, or other topics, as applicable. The Board’s other committees also assist the oversight function of the Board by addressing risks related to the relevant committee’s particular area of concentration. For example, the Compensation Committee oversees risks related to our executive compensation plans and arrangements and in doing so considers gender and other protected groups pay equality. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees risks associated with the independence of the Board and potential conflicts of interest.
Each committee reports on discussions of the applicable risks to the Board during the committee reports portion of each meeting of the Board, as appropriate. The Board considers each committee’s report, and incorporates the insight provided by the reports into its overall risk management analysis.

Corporate Governance Guidelines
Our Board has adopted Amended and Restated Corporate Governance Guidelines that reflect its commitment to oversee the effectiveness of policy and decision-making at the Board and management level, with a view to enhancing stockholder value over the long-term. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines are available online at https://investors.targethospitality.com/governance.
Majority Voting Policy
An incumbent director who receives a greater number of votes “withheld” from his or her election than votes “for” such election in an uncontested election shall, within five days following the certification of the election results, tender his or her written resignation to the Chair of the Board for consideration by the Corporate Governance Committee. The Corporate Governance Committee shall consider such resignation and, within 45 days following the date of the stockholder meeting at which the election of directors occurred, shall make a recommendation to the Board concerning the acceptance or rejection of such resignation.
Following the Board’s decision on the Corporate Governance Committee’s recommendation, the company, within four business days after such decision is made, shall publicly disclose, in a Form 8-K filed with the SEC, the Board’s decision, together with an explanation of the process by which the decision was made and, if applicable, the Board’s reason or reasons for rejecting the tendered resignation.
Codes of Business Conduct & Ethics
Our Board has adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which applies to our directors, officers and employees, and a Code of Ethics for the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Financial Officers, which supplements our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and applies to our CEO, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer and controller. Copies of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and the Code of Ethics for the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Financial Officers are available online at https://investors.targethospitality.com/governance. If the Board grants a waiver under our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to any director, executive officer or senior financial officer, or we make any substantive amendment to the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics or grant any waiver thereunder to a covered officer, we will promptly disclose the nature of the applicable waiver or amendment on our website.
Prohibition against Hedging and Pledging
Pursuant to our Corporate Governance Guidelines, Directors and Section 16 officers should not speculate or hedge their interests in our stock. Therefore, Directors and Section 16 officers are prohibited from entering into any derivative transactions in our stock, including any short sale, forward, equity swap, option or collar that is based on the company’s stock price. Notwithstanding such prohibition, certain transactions may be authorized if determined by the Board to be in the best interests of the company. Further, directors and officers shall not, directly or indirectly, pledge, hypothecate, or otherwise encumber our securities as collateral for indebtedness or any other obligation. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, holding such securities in a margin account.
Stock Ownership Guidelines
We have stock ownership guidelines for directors, members of the executive management team and other officers. We believe that a significant ownership stake by directors and officers leads to a stronger alignment of interests between directors, officers and stockholders. These guidelines, which were developed with the assistance of an independent compensation consultant, support our corporate governance focus and provide further alignment of interests among our directors and executive officers and stockholders.
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_targethospitareg-pn.jpg]
16
2021 Proxy Statement

 
These guidelines establish the ownership requirements of shares of the company’s common stock determined as a multiple of  (i) with respect to non-employee directors, a director’s annual cash retainer (excluding the additional annual cash retainer for leadership positions) and (ii) with respect to the executive officers, an executive’s base salary. The ownership target requirements by the covered individual’s position are as follows:
Position
Share Ownership Guideline
Non-Employee Director
5 times
Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”)
5 times
Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) and Chief Commercial
Officer (“CCO”)
3 times
Section 16 Officers, other than the CEO, CFO and CCO
2 times
Subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee, a covered individual’s failure to meet or show sustained progress toward meeting the applicable ownership guideline may result in an obligation to refrain from the sale (other than for taxes) of certain percentages of stock attained through company equity awards. The shares counted for purposes of our officers’ common stock ownership guidelines include shares owned outright, RSUs, stock options (vested, in-the-money), and other share based equivalents that we may use from time to time.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are an important part of who we are and are supported at all levels of the company. We are passionate about building a diverse workforce and realizing the benefits that come from sharing a variety of perspectives. Our approach to diversity and inclusion is comprehensive. With support from the Board and executive team, the company drives its diversity and inclusion initiatives through many efforts. The initiatives are operationalized through five core elements: (1) senior management’s endorsement of and alignment with the programs; (2) a data strategy to establish metrics, goals and accountability; (3) increasing diversity in the talent pipeline and our hiring; (4) creating an inclusive work environment; and (5) a strategy for transparent communications. Although we know there is more work to be done, we are proud of the progress that we have made.
Over the past year, members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee have continued their outreach to potential director candidates with a diversity of personal factors and professional characteristics that could be valuable additions to our Board. Our Board and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee remain committed to actively seeking out candidates who strengthen the diversity of viewpoints on our Board and have undertaken to include women and persons with ethnically or racially diverse backgrounds in each pool from which we select new director nominees. Evidencing this commitment to diversity and inclusion, on May 20, 2020, we announced the appointment of Ms. Joy Berry to our Board as a Class III Director.
As of December 31, 2020, women constituted 43% of our workforce and self-identified racial or ethnic minorities represented 70% of our workforce.
Board Evaluation Process
Each year, the Board expects to conduct a rigorous annual self-evaluation to help determine whether the Board and its committees are functioning effectively. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees this process. The self-evaluation process solicits input from the directors regarding the performance and effectiveness of the Board, the Committees and the individual directors, and provides an opportunity for directors to identify areas for improvement. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews the results and feedback from the self-evaluation process and makes recommendations for improvements, as appropriate.
Director Independence
Nasdaq listing rules require a majority of our Board to be independent. An “independent director” is defined as a person other than an officer or employee of the company or its subsidiaries or any other individual having a relationship which, in the opinion of the company’s Board, would interfere with the director’s exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
2021 Proxy Statement
17
[MISSING IMAGE: lg_targethospitareg-pn.jpg]

 
Our Board annually makes an affirmative determination regarding the independence of each director based upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and pursuant to the standards in our Corporate Governance Guidelines. Applying these standards, the Board has affirmatively determined that Messrs. Baker, Jimmerson, Sagansky and Studdert and Ms. Berry are “independent directors.”
In making this determination, the Board considered the following factors, among others: the ownership positions and contractual arrangements of our Board members and their affiliates with our company; the corporate governance and other policies adopted by the Board to help avoid conflicts and potential conflicts of interest; the contractual arrangements and annual payments between our company and other companies upon which our directors also serve as directors; and, the alignment of the long-term interests of the stockholders that appointed our Board members with the long-term interests of our other stockholders. Messrs. Robertson and Lindsay are founding partner and partner, respectively, of TDR Capital, the beneficial owner of a majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock. Due to TDR Capital’s majority ownership, the Board believes it cannot affirmatively determine such directors are “independent” as defined by the rules and regulations of Nasdaq.
Communication with the Board
Stockholders, employees and other interested parties may communicate with any of our directors, our Board as a group, our independent directors as a group or any Board committee as a group by sending such communications to the Corporate Secretary to be forwarded to the Chairman of the Board. The Corporate Secretary may respond directly or redirect any such communication to another department of the company for an appropriate response if, in the discretion of the Corporate Secretary, such a direct response is more appropriate. The Corporate Secretary may also ignore any communication that she determines to be of a commercial or frivolous nature or otherwise inappropriate for Board consideration.

PROPOSAL 2 — RATIFICATION OF OUR INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
PROPOSAL SNAPSHOT
What Am I Voting On?
The Board seeks an indication from stockholders of their approval or disapproval of the Audit Committee’s appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021.
Voting Recommendation:
FOR the ratification of our independent registered public accounting firm.
The Audit Committee is directly responsible for the appointment, compensation, retention and oversight of the company’s independent auditor. Ernst & Young LLP (“EY”) has been our independent auditor since April 26, 2019. The Audit Committee believes that the retention of EY to serve as the company’s independent auditor for 2021 is in the best interests of the company and its stockholders. If the appointment of EY is not approved by our stockholders, the Audit Committee will consider whether it is appropriate to select another independent auditor.
On April 26, 2019, the Audit Committee approved the engagement of EY as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, effective April 26, 2019. During our fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2018 and the subsequent interim period through April 26, 2019, neither we, nor anyone on our behalf consulted with EY, on behalf of us, regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction (either completed or proposed), the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, or any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement,” or a “reportable event,” as defined by SEC rules.
During our fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2020, neither we, nor anyone on our behalf consulted with EY, on behalf of us, regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction (either completed or proposed), the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, or any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement,” or a “reportable event,” as defined SEC rules.
EY representatives will be present at the Annual Meeting and will have the opportunity to make a statement and respond to questions.
Audit Fees & Approval Process
The Audit Committee pre-approves all audit and non-audit services to be performed by the independent auditors in compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the SEC rules regarding auditor independence. These services may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and all other services. Proposed services may either be pre-approved without consideration of specific case-by-case services by the Audit Committee or require the specific pre-approval of the Audit Committee. Unless a type of service has received general pre-approval, it will require specific pre-approval if it is to be provided by EY.
Fees for all services to be provided by EY are approved by the Audit Committee. Any proposed fees exceeding these levels or amounts require specific advanced approval by the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee may delegate either type of approval authority to one or more of its members. The member to whom such authority is delegated must report, for informational purposes only, any pre-approval decisions to the Audit Committee at its next scheduled meeting. The Audit Committee has delegated to its Chair the authority to approve any permissible non-audit services with a fee of  $50,000 or less.

Audit Committee Report
The Audit Committee is composed of three directors, all of whom meet the independence standards of Nasdaq, the SEC and our Corporate Governance Guidelines, and operates under a written charter adopted by the Board.
Management is responsible for the company’s internal controls and the financial reporting process. EY, acting as independent auditor of the company, is responsible for performing an independent audit of the company’s consolidated financial statements and internal control over financial reporting in accordance with standards established by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”).
The Audit Committee discussed with EY the overall scope and execution of the independent audit and reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements with management. The Audit Committee also discussed with EY other matters required by PCAOB auditing standards.
EY provided to the Audit Committee the written communications required by applicable standards of the PCAOB regarding EY’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and the Audit Committee discussed EY’s independence with management and the auditors. The Audit Committee also considered whether the provision of other non-audit services by EY to the company is compatible with maintaining independence.
The Audit Committee concluded that the independent auditors’ independence had not been impaired.
Based on the reviews and discussion referred to above, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited consolidated financial statements be included in the company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
By the members of the Audit Committee as of March 23, 2021 consisting of:
Jeff Sagansky
Martin L. Jimmerson
(Chairman)
Andrew Studdert
The information contained in the “Audit Committee Report” is not considered to be “soliciting material,” “filed” or incorporated by reference in any past or future filing by the company under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless and only to the extent that the company specifically incorporates it by reference.

MATTERS RAISED AT THE 2021 ANNUAL MEETING NOT
INCLUDED IN THIS PROXY STATEMENT
We do not know of any matters to be acted upon at the Annual Meeting other than those discussed in this proxy statement. If any other matter is properly presented, proxy holders will vote on the matter in their discretion.
STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS AND DIRECTOR
NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2022 ANNUAL MEETING
For any proposal to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement and form of proxy for submission to the stockholders at our 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2022 Annual Meeting”), it must be submitted in writing and comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act. Generally, such proposals are due 120 days before the anniversary of the date we release our proxy materials for the prior year, which was April 7, 2021. Therefore, we have determined that Rule 14a-8 stockholder proposals must be received by the company at its office at 2170 Buckthorne Place, Suite 440, The Woodlands, Texas 77380, no later than December 8, 2021.
In addition, our bylaws provide notice procedures for stockholders to nominate a person as a director and to propose business to be considered by stockholders at a meeting. Notice of a nomination or proposal must be delivered to us not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day, and not later than the close of business on the 90th day, prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting. In the event that the date of the annual meeting is greater than 30 days before, or greater than 60 days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholders to be timely must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to the date of such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of  (i) the 90th day prior to such annual meeting and, (ii) if the first public announcement of the date of such meeting is fewer than 100 days prior to the date of such annual meeting, the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made by the company. Currently, we expect our 2022 Annual Meeting to be no greater than 30 days before and no greater than 60 days after the anniversary date of the 2021 Annual Meeting. Accordingly, for our 2022 Annual Meeting, assuming that we do not issue a public announcement changing the date of the meeting, notice of a nomination or proposal must be delivered to us no later than February 17, 2022 and no earlier than January 18, 2022. Nominations and proposals also must satisfy other requirements set forth in the bylaws. The Chairman of the Board may refuse to acknowledge the introduction of any stockholder proposal not made in compliance with the foregoing procedures, or the procedures set forth in the bylaws.
ACCESS TO ANNUAL REPORT ON FORM 10-K
The 2020 annual report to stockholders, including financial statements, was delivered or made available with this proxy statement. On written request, we will provide, without charge to each record or beneficial holder of our common stock as of March 22, 2021, a copy of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, as filed with the SEC, including the financial statements, schedules and a list of exhibits thereto. Written requests should be directed to our executive office located at 2170 Buckthorne Place, Suite 440, The Woodlands, Texas 77380.

of Internet Availability but would like to receive a full printed set of the proxy materials in the mail, you may follow the instructions in the Notice of Internet Availability for requesting such materials.
Who may vote at the Annual Meeting?
As of the record date, March 22, 2021, there were 101,236,253 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding. You may vote all of the shares of our common stock that you own at the close of business on the record date. You may cast one vote for each share that you own. We do not have cumulative voting rights for the election of directors.
What is a quorum?
A quorum must be present at the Annual Meeting in order to transact business. A quorum will be present if a majority of our shares of common stock entitled to vote are represented at the Annual Meeting, either in person or by proxy. If a quorum is not present, no business may be conducted at the Annual Meeting, in which case the Annual Meeting may be adjourned, without a vote of stockholders by the chairman of the Annual Meeting, until such time as a quorum is present.
Proxies received and marked as abstentions from voting on a proposal, and broker non-votes are counted for determining whether a quorum is present. A “broker non-vote” results when a trust, broker, bank, or other nominee or fiduciary that holds shares for another person has not received voting instructions from the owner of the shares and, under the applicable rules, does not have the discretionary authority to vote on a matter. If a properly executed proxy has not been returned, the holder is not present for quorum purposes.
What am I voting on, how many votes are required to elect directors and approve the other proposals, and how does the Board recommend that I vote?
Proposal No. 1: Elect as directors the three nominees named in the proxy statement
As there are three nominees for the three seats up for election, each nominee will be elected as a director if he receives the affirmative vote, a plurality of the total votes cast “FOR” with respect to his election as a director at the Annual Meeting. Any abstentions or broker non-votes are not counted as votes cast either “FOR” or “WITHHELD” with respect to a director’s election and will have no effect on the election of directors.
The Board recommends a vote FOR the election of each nominee as a director.
Proposal No. 2: Ratify the appointment of EY as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2021
Ratification of the appointment of EY as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2021 requires a majority of the votes cast on the proposal at the Annual Meeting to be voted “FOR” this proposal. Abstentions will not count as votes cast either “FOR” or “AGAINST” Proposal No. 2 and will have no effect on the results of the vote on this proposal.
The Board recommends a vote FOR the ratification of EY’s appointment.
How many votes do I have?
You have one vote on each proposal for each share of common stock that you owned as of the record date, March 22, 2021.

2021 Proxy Statement

 
How do I vote my shares?
Stockholders of Record
If you are a stockholder of record (i.e., you hold your shares in certificate form or through an account with our transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company), then you can attend the Annual Meeting via live webcast, complete a ballot and submit it. You may also vote by completing, signing and dating the proxy card that you received from us, and returning it in the accompanying pre-addressed envelope. IF YOU VOTE BY MAIL, YOUR PROXY CARD WILL BE VALID ONLY IF YOU COMPLETE, SIGN, DATE AND RETURN IT BEFORE THE ANNUAL MEETING DATE.
Beneficial Owners
If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your brokerage firm, bank or other agent, then you should receive a notice containing voting instructions from that organization rather than our company. Simply follow the voting instructions in the notice to ensure that your vote is counted. To vote in person at the Annual Meeting, you must obtain a valid proxy from your broker, bank or other agent. Follow the instructions from your broker or bank included with these proxy materials or contact your broker or bank to request a proxy form. See “How do I attend the Annual Meeting in person?” below for more information on how to attend the annual meeting.
Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting via webcast, please authorize a proxy to vote your shares right away, by following the instructions on the proxy card that you received from us or the voting instruction card that you received from your broker, bank or other agent. By voting by proxy, you will be directing the persons designated as proxy holders as your proxies to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting in accordance with your instructions.
Will my shares be voted if I do not complete, sign, date and return my proxy card or voting instruction card, or vote by some other method?
If you are a registered “record” stockholder and you do not vote your shares by completing, signing, dating and returning a proxy card, your shares will not be voted unless you attend the Annual Meeting via webcast and vote in person. In addition, if you sign, date and return a proxy card, but do not complete voting instructions for a proposal, your shares will be voted with respect to such proposal by the named proxies in accordance with the Board’s recommendations and in the discretion of the proxy holder on any other matter that may properly come before the Annual Meeting.
If your shares are held in a brokerage account or by a bank or other agent, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of shares held in “street name” and the proxy materials were forwarded to you by that organization. In order to vote your shares, you must follow the voting instructions provided to you by that organization. Brokerage firms, banks and other agents are required to request voting instructions for shares they hold on behalf of customers and others. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct the record holder how to vote and you are also invited to attend the Annual Meeting via webcast. We encourage you to provide instructions to your brokerage firm, bank or other agent on how to vote your shares. Because a beneficial owner is not the record stockholder, you may not vote the shares at the Annual Meeting via webcast unless you obtain a legal proxy from the record holder giving you the right to vote the shares at the meeting.
Even if you do not provide voting instructions on your voting instruction card, your shares may be voted if you hold shares through an account with a brokerage firm, bank or other agent. Brokerage firms have the authority under Nasdaq rules to vote shares for which their customers do not provide voting instructions on certain routine matters. Proposal No. 2, to ratify the appointment of EY as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2021, is considered a routine matter for which brokers, banks and other agents may vote in the absence of specific instructions.
When a proposal is not considered routine and the broker, bank or other agent has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares with respect to such proposal, such firm cannot vote the shares on that proposal. All proposals, other than Proposal No. 2, are non-routine proposals. Votes that cannot be cast by a broker, bank or other agent on non-routine matters are known as “broker non-votes.”

How can I revoke my proxy and change my vote prior to the Annual Meeting?
You may revoke your proxy or change your vote at any time prior to the vote taken at the Annual Meeting.
Stockholders of Record
You may revoke your proxy by (i) notifying our Corporate Secretary, at our office at 2170 Buckthorne Place, Suite 440, The Woodlands, Texas 77380, in writing that you wish to revoke your proxy; (ii) submitting a proxy dated later than your original proxy; or (iii) attending the Annual Meeting via webcast and voting by ballot. Attending the Annual Meeting via webcast will not by itself revoke a proxy; you must submit a ballot and vote your shares at the Annual Meeting.
Beneficial Owners
For shares you hold beneficially or in street name, you may change your vote by following the specific voting instructions provided to you by the record holder to change or revoke any instructions you have already provided, or, if you obtained a legal proxy from your brokerage firm, bank or other agent giving you the right to vote your shares, by attending the Annual Meeting and voting in person.
Who pays the costs of the proxy solicitation?
We will pay the cost of soliciting proxies. Beyond these proxy materials, our directors and employees may solicit proxies in person, by telephone or by electronic communication. Directors and employees will not receive any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We have engaged Morrow Sodali LLC (“Morrow”) to assist in the solicitation of proxies for the Annual Meeting, and we expect that Morrow’s fee will be $6,500, plus reimbursement of disbursements. Morrow’s address is 470 West Avenue, Stamford, CT 06902. Stockholders can reach Morrow at (800) 662-5200. Banks and brokers may call collect at (203) 658-9400. We will also reimburse brokerage firms, banks and other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners.
What does it mean if I received more than one proxy card or voting instruction card?
If you receive more than one proxy card or voting instruction card, it means that you have multiple accounts with our transfer agent and/or brokerage firm, bank or other agent, or you may hold shares in different ways or in multiple names (such as through joint tenancy, trusts and custodial accounts). Please vote all of your shares.
How can I find out the results of the voting at the Annual Meeting?
Preliminary voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting. Final voting results will be provided in a Current Report on Form 8-K that we expect to file within four business days after the Annual Meeting.
What is “householding” and how does it work?
Under the rules adopted by the SEC, we may deliver a single Notice to one address shared by two or more of our stockholders. This delivery method is referred to as “householding” and can result in significant cost savings. To take advantage of this opportunity, we have delivered only one Notice to multiple stockholders who share an address, unless we received contrary instructions from the impacted stockholders prior to the mailing date. We agree to deliver promptly, upon written or oral request, aseparate copy of the Notice, as requested, to any stockholder at the shared address to which a single copy of the Notice was delivered. If you prefer to receive separate copies of the Notice, contact Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. by calling 1-800-542-1061 or in writing at Broadridge, Householding Department, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717.
In addition, if you currently are a stockholder who shares an address with another stockholder and would like to receive only one copy of future Notices for your household, you may notify your broker if your shares are held in a brokerage account or you may notify us if you hold registered shares. Registered stockholders may notify us by contacting Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. at the above telephone number or address or sending a written request to our executive office located at 2170 Buckthorne Place, Suite 440, The Woodlands, Texas 77380.
