Item 8.01  Other Events.

 

The Board of Directors of Hill International, Inc. (the “Company”) has scheduled the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders for June 27, 2017.

 

The Company intends to timely file with the SEC and send to stockholders proxy materials in connection with the 2017 Annual Meeting including the official notice to stockholders.  The Company’s Bylaws provide that a stockholder may propose business for consideration or nominate persons for election to the Board without seeking to have the proposal included in the Company’s proxy statement.  Since the 2017 Annual Meeting is advancing by more than 30 days from the anniversary date of last year’s Annual Meeting, the Company’s Bylaws require that notice of such proposals or nominations for the 2017 Annual Meeting be received by the Company no later than the close of business on March 20, 2017, — which supersedes the advance notice window of April 13, 2017 to May 13, 2017 that was disclosed in the Company’s proxy statement for last year’s Annual Meeting.  Any notice must satisfy the requirements in the Company’s Bylaws applicable to such proposals and nominations.
