("DP Poland" or the "Company")

Proposed appointment of Non-Executive Director

DP Poland, the operator of Domino's Pizza stores and restaurants across Poland and Croatia, is pleased to announce the intended appointment of Stoffel Thijs as an independent Non-Executive Director of the Company, subject to the completion of normal regulatory due diligence being carried out by the Company's Nomad. Mr Thijs is expected to be appointed to the board on 1 January 2024.

Stoffel has been with Domino's for 26 years. He began his Domino's journey as a pizza delivery driver at the young age of 16 in 1997. By the time he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business, he had already bought his first two pizza stores. Stoffel sold his four stores in 2010 and took on the challenge to build a corporate store system of Domino's Pizza in the Netherlands. When Domino's bought Joey's Pizza in Germany (2016), Stoffel led the Domino's corporate system and played a significant role in bringing the High Volume Mentality to Germany. In 2017 Stoffel became the President of Domino's France. In 2018, Stoffel moved from France to take on the role of CEO of Domino's Pizza in Germany. Stoffel is a strong supporter of DP Poland and holds 0.9% of its shares (directly and indirectly).

Commenting David Wild, Chairman of DP Poland said:

"I am excited about the positive contribution that Stoffel will make to our Board through his extensive Domino's experience in several European markets and his energy in growing the brand."

Commenting Stoffel Thijs said:

"I've watched the company for more than a year as a passive shareholder and I'm excited by prospects of Domino's in Poland and Croatia. I've been impressed by the rapid turnaround under Nils' leadership and I am delighted to join the Board of DP Poland. I've been involved with the Domino's business for 26 years, most recently as CEO of Germany. We've also been through a period of rapid growth, now with over 400 stores. I look forward to working with the team at DP Poland to help take the business to the next level on this exciting journey."     

A further announcement confirming the appointment on completion of customary regulatory due diligence checks and disclosing information in respect of Schedule 2(g) of the AIM Rules will be made when appropriate.
