Explanatory Note

 

Hill International, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”), on Form 8-K/A, to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 19, 2016 (the “Original Report”) which disclosed the settlement (the “Settlement”) of litigation related to the 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders which was originally scheduled to be held at 11:00 a.m. on August 11, 2016 (the “Annual Meeting”).  Among other things, the Settlement included a stipulation among the parties acknowledging that the Company’s stockholders voted at the Annual Meeting in favor of the Company including an advisory stockholder vote on the compensation of named executive officers in the Company’s proxy statement on an annual basis (rather than every three years).

 

This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Report. Except for the matters disclosed below, this Amendment does not amend the Original Report in any way and does not modify or update any other disclosures contained in the Original Report.

 

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

In the Company’s proxy statement related to the Annual Meeting, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) recommended to the Company’s stockholders that the Company include annually in its proxy statement the non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of its executive officers.  Considering the Company’s stockholders voted as recommended by the Board, the Company has determined the Company will hold a non-binding advisory vote on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers on an annual basis, until the next required vote on the frequency of the non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation occurs, or until the Board of Directors determines that holding such vote with a different frequency is in the best interests of the Company. The next non-binding advisory vote regarding such frequency will be held no later than the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2022.
