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

On January 19, 2017, Quinpario Acquisition Corp. 2 (the Company)
held a special meeting of stockholders (the Meeting). At the
Meeting, the Companys stockholders approved an amendment to the
Companys Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the
Charter) to extend the date by which the Company has to
consummate a business combination (the Extension) to July 24,
2017 (the Extension Amendment). The affirmative vote of holders
of 65% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company was
required to approve the proposal. The purpose of the Extension is
to allow the Company more time to complete an initial business
combination.

A final tabulation of votes cast for and against the proposal, as
well as the number of abstentions and broker non-votes with
respect to the proposal, is set forth below:

For Against Abstentions Broker Non-Votes
39,287,331 4,270,050 84,100

Based on the foregoing, the proposal was approved. In addition,
the Company had net tangible assets of more than $5,000,001
following the approval of the proposal, after taking into account
payments to the holders of public shares who duly exercised their
conversion rights as described below. Accordingly, the Company
was authorized to proceed with the Extension Amendment. As a
result, promptly after completion of the Meeting, on January 19,
2017, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State
of Delaware an amendment to the Charter (the Charter Amendment)
setting forth the Extension Amendment, a copy of which is
attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference
herein.

In connection with the Extension, holders of approximately 14.9
public shares exercised their right to convert such public shares
into a pro rata portion of the Companys trust account established
in connection with the Companys initial public offering. As a
result, approximately $202 million remains in the Companys trust
account.

The foregoing summary of the Charter Amendment is qualified in
its entirety by reference to the text of the Charter Amendment.
