RPM INTERNATIONAL INC.
STATEMENT OF GOVERNANCE POLICY
RPM Internationals fundamental objective is to build long-term stockholder value by profitably growing our businesses and
consistently delivering strong financial performance. We think that our ability to generate value for our stockholders is inextricably linked to our ability to provide value to our principal stakeholders, including our customers and associates.
We do not focus narrowly on efforts to maximize the short-term price of our stock, and think that
such an approach is fundamentally misguided. Instead, we believe that emphasizing consistent value creation in our businesses will maximize the long-term value of our stockholders investment.
In short, we manage our businesses to create wealth for our stockholders. Creating value for our other stakeholders
is how we have achieved, and will continue to achieve, that objective.
