Today, Mr. Nelson Peltz, Chief Executive Officer and founding partner of Trian Fund Management, L.P. and a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Ingersoll Rand plc (the “Company”), informed the Board of his decision not to stand for re-election at the Company’s 2014 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on June 5, 2014 (the “Annual Meeting”) due to other board commitments. Since Mr. Peltz's decision not to stand for re-election was not the result of any disagreement with the Company, the Board or the Company’s management, he will continue to serve as a director, as a member of the Finance Committee of the Board and as a member of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board until his current term expires at the Annual Meeting.
