Item 5.07.

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

As previously disclosed, on March 7, 2018, Altra Industrial Motion Corp. (“Altra”) and Fortive Corporation (“Fortive”) announced that they and certain affiliates had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), dated March 7, 2018, among Altra, Fortive, McHale Acquisition Corp. (“Merger Sub”) and Stevens Holding Company, Inc. (“Newco”), pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement and a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated March 7, 2018, among Altra, Fortive and Newco, (1) Fortive will transfer certain assets, liabilities and entities within its Automation & Specialty platform, but excluding its Hengstler and Dynapar businesses (such businesses to be transferred, the “A&S Business”) to Newco, (2) Fortive will distribute to its stockholders all of the issued and outstanding shares of Newco common stock held by Fortive by way of an exchange offer or a combination of an exchange offer and a pro rata dividend and (3) Merger Sub will merge with and into Newco, with Newco as the surviving corporation, and the issued and outstanding shares of Newco common stock will be converted into shares of Altra common stock (the “Merger”).

On September 4, 2018, Altra held its special meeting of stockholders (the “special meeting”) to vote on the following items of business relating to the transaction with Fortive, each of which is described in more detail in the definitive proxy statement filed by Altra with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 6, 2018. At the special meeting, Altra’s stockholders:



approved the issuance of shares of Altra common stock in the Merger (the “Share Issuance”);



approved an amendment to Altra’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Altra common stock from 90,000,000 to 120,000,000 (the “Charter Amendment”); and



approved amendments to Altra’s 2014 Omnibus Incentive Plan to increase the number of shares authorized for issuance by 2,200,000 shares, contingent upon the closing of the transactions, for a total of 3,700,000 authorized shares, and to impose a more restrictive limit on non-employee director compensation, which limit is not contingent upon the closing of the transactions (the “Altra Equity Plan Amendments”).

The results for each matter voted on by Altra’s stockholders at the special meeting were as follows:

Proposal 1. Approval of the Share Issuance:


Shares “For”


Shares “Against”


Shares “Abstain”


Broker Non-Votes


Proposal 2. Approval of the Charter Amendment:


Shares “For”


Shares “Against”


Shares “Abstain”


Broker Non-Votes


Proposal 3. Approval of the Altra Equity Plan Amendments:


Shares “For”


Shares “Against”


Shares “Abstain”


Broker Non-Votes


Since there were sufficient votes at the time of the special meeting to approve the Share Issuance, the Charter Amendment and the Altra Equity Plan Amendments, the proposal to approve the adjournment or postponement of the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies was not called for at the special meeting.
