Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(b) On November 7, 2011 Dr. David W. Ignat informed the Board of Directors of Nordson Corporation of his intention to retire at the expiration of his term in February 2012 and not stand for reelection to the class of directors whose term will expire in 2015.
Dr. Ignat, a nephew of the company’s founders, Eric and Evan Nord, has been a director since 2002. His decision to retire as a director is not as a consequence of any disagreement with Nordson Corporation on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices, but in recognition of his reaching the mandatory retirement age for directors before being able to serve out an entire term if reelected.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
