Explanatory Note

This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed as an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Koppers Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) on May 5, 2017 (the “Original 8-K”). The Original 8-K was filed to report, among other things, the results of the matters submitted to a vote at the Company’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 4, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future advisory (non-binding) votes on executive compensation. This Amendment does not otherwise revise the Original 8-K in any way.


Item 5.07.

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

As previously reported in the Original 8-K, in an advisory (non-binding) vote concerning the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation held at the Company’s Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders cast the highest number of votes for an annual frequency, consistent with the recommendation of the Company’s Board of Directors. Accordingly, in light of the voting results and other factors, the Board of Directors has determined that the Company will hold an annual advisory vote on executive compensation until the next advisory vote concerning the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation is held.




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.

Dated: August 3, 2017
