This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (the Amendment) amends the Current Report on Form 8-K dated May 11, 2017 filed by Iridium Communications Inc. (the Company) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on May 16, 2017 (the Original Form 8-K). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Companys 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 11, 2017 (the 2017 Annual Meeting). In addition to reporting the information set forth in Item 5.07 below, the purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Companys decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future stockholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Companys named executive officers (say on pay). No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.
|Item 5.07||Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.|
As reported in the Original Form 8-K, at the 2017 Annual Meeting, a majority of the Companys stockholders that voted on the matter indicated a preference to hold, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the Companys future say-on-pay advisory vote on an annual basis. In accordance with the original recommendation of the Companys Board of Directors (the Board), as set forth in the Companys Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the SEC on March 30, 2017, and consistent with the stockholder voting results, on May 11, 2017, the Board determined that the say-on-pay vote will be conducted annually, until the next stockholder vote on say-on-pay frequency, which vote will occur no later than the Companys 2023 annual meeting of stockholders.
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.
