Dear Fellow Shareholder:


You are cordially invited to attend the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Koppers Holdings Inc. (Koppers). The meeting will be held at the The Duquesne Club, 325 Sixth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 on Thursday, May 4, 2017, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

The purpose of the meeting will be to elect eight directors, to approve our Employee Stock Purchase Plan, to hold an advisory vote on executive compensation, to hold an advisory vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation and to ratify the audit committee’s appointment of KPMG LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for fiscal year 2017.

This booklet includes the Notice of Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement. The proxy statement describes the business we will conduct

at the meeting and provides information about Koppers that you should consider when you vote your shares. Also enclosed is our Annual Report, which includes our consolidated financial statements for 2016.

Your vote is important regardless of how many shares you own and I urge you to vote your shares. Whether or not you plan to attend the annual meeting, please sign, date and return the proxy card in the enclosed envelope to make sure that your shares are voted at the meeting. Voting your shares by proxy does not limit your right to be present at the meeting and vote your shares in person.

I appreciate your continued confidence in Koppers and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.






Leroy M. Ball, Jr.

President and Chief Executive Officer
