Imperial Sugar Company announced today the reduction of the size of the Board of Directors from 12 to 10, reflecting the resignations of H.E. Lentz and Kevin O'Sullivan, effective May 30. The Company said that H. E. Lentz, Managing Director of Lehman Brothers Inc., is resigning because he determined that the recent establishment by Lehman Brothers of a significant position in Imperial Sugar's 9 3/4% senior subordinated debentures could create a future conflict of interest with his role as an independent outside director.
