Information responsive to Item 5.02(b):
On June 16, 2017, Laurence E. Hirsch, our Chairman, informed us that he has decided to retire from the Board and therefore will not be seeking reelection as a Class II Director of the Board of Directors of Eagle Materials Inc. (the Company) when his term expires at the Companys upcoming 2017 annual meeting of stockholders. It is anticipated that upon Mr. Hirschs retirement, Richard R. Stewart, currently our Vice Chairman, will succeed Mr. Hirsch as Chairman, and Michael R. Nicolais will be appointed Vice Chairman. Mr. Hirsch indicated that his declining to stand for reelection does not arise from any disagreement on any matter relating to the Companys operations, policies or practices.
The Company and the Board of Directors recognize and sincerely thank Mr. Hirsch for his exemplary leadership, dedication and service to the Company and its stockholders for the last 32 years.
