GLENWOOD, Ill., Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Landauer, Inc.

Dempsey, Lead Independent Director, said, "We appreciate the constructive dialogue we have had with Gilead and welcome Jeffrey as a new director.  He brings additional expertise to our highly qualified Board, and we look forward to working together as we continue to execute on our strategic plan to drive profitability and stockholder value. We are committed to maintaining a strong, independent Board and we are confident that the recent changes we have made provide Landauer with a highly qualified group of director nominees with the right skills and experience to lead the Company forward."

Mr. Strong, the Chief Investment Officer, Managing Partner, and Co-Founder of Gilead, added, "I am pleased to join the Board under this agreement, which will provide the Company with fresh perspectives and experience. Gilead is excited about Landauer's future, and we look forward to working constructively with the senior leadership team and other directors to maximize Landauer's long-term value for all stockholders."

The complete agreement between Landauer and Gilead will be included as an exhibit to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
