Charles & Colvard Ltd announced a reorganization of its corporate structure in a continuing effort to manage costs and return the Company to profitability.

James R. Braun has resigned from his position as Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of the Company. He will continue to assist the Company in certain business matters as requested. Neil Boss, Controller of the Company since 2002, will continue to serve in that role and has been appointed as the principal accounting officer and principal financial officer for the Company. A graduate of Penn State with a BS in Accounting, Mr. Boss has worked for the Company since April 1998.

The Company also reduced its workforce by eliminating four other positions within the organization, including positions in marketing and manufacturing. During the three months ended September 30, 2008, the Company will expense approximately $325,000 in severance pay. Additionally, the management team and certain other employees have agreed to a rollback in salary for three months, effective October 1, 2008.

The organizational changes, including those changes made earlier in 2008, will result in salary savings of approximately $1.7 million in 2009, partially offset by $325,000 of severance and consulting fees to be paid in 2009.

Dennis Reed, President, stated, “We thank Mr. Braun and these four associates for their hard work and dedication. We deeply appreciate their contributions in building the Company and its strong reputation in the jewelry industry. The economic climate for the jewelry industry is quite challenging, requiring the Company to make changes in order to achieve profitability quickly and build a foundation for successful growth.”

Steven Abate, Vice President of Manufacturing of the Company since March 2007, has been appointed the Vice President of Operations for the Company and will assume increased responsibilities in areas ranging from manufacturing to information technology. A graduate of New Jersey Institute of Technology, Mr. Abate has worked for the Company since June 2005.

Mr. Reed continued, “We have every confidence in Neil's ability to take on the responsibilities as principal accounting officer and principal financial officer and look forward to his contributions. Steven has been a valuable addition to our organization and we expect continued success in his expanded role.”
