On July 24, 2018, the Board of Directors of Hanesbrands Inc. (the “Company”) increased the number of members of the Board of Directors from ten to eleven and elected Geralyn R. Breig to serve as a director of the Company. The election of Ms. Breig is effective immediately, and she will serve until the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders and until her successor is elected and qualified, or until her resignation or removal. Ms. Breig will serve as a member of the Audit Committee.

Ms. Breig’s compensation will be consistent with the Company’s previously disclosed standard compensatory arrangements for non-employee directors, which are described in the Company’s most recent proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 12, 2018, under the heading “Director Compensation.” Ms. Breig’s compensation for 2018 will be prorated to reflect the commencement date of her Board service.

Other than the standard compensation arrangements described above, there are no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Breig and any other person pursuant to which she was elected as a director. The Company is not aware of any transaction with Ms. Breig that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
