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


At the special meeting of the stockholders of Accuride
Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the Company) held on
November 15, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time (the Special
Meeting), the stockholders approved the following proposals:

1.

Proposal to adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated
September 2, 2016 (the Merger Agreement), by and among
the Company, Armor Parent Corp., a Delaware corporation
(Parent), and Armor Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware
corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the
Merger Agreement Proposal). The proposal was approved
with a vote of 27,626,640 shares in favor, 13,421,352
shares against, 352,261 abstentions and 0 broker
non-votes.

2.

Proposal to approve the adjournment of the special
meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, to
solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient
votes to adopt the Merger Agreement at the time of the
Special Meeting. The proposal was approved with a vote of
27,128,773 shares in favor, 13,922,167 shares against,
349,313 abstentions and 0 broker non-votes. Sufficient
votes were received to approve this proposal; however
this proposal was not necessary following the approval of
the Merger Agreement Proposal and was therefore not
implemented.

Proposal to approve, by non-binding, advisory vote,
certain compensation that will or may become payable to
the Companys named executive officers in connection with
the Merger (as defined in the Merger Agreement). The
proposal was approved with a vote of 25,443,139 shares in
favor, 14,826,918 shares against, 1,130,196 abstentions
and 0 broker non-votes.

Meeting, which was October 10, 2016, there were 48,323,007 shares
of the Companys common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at
the Special Meeting. Each share of the Companys common stock was
