SEVCON, INC. (NASDAQ:SEV) Files An 8-K Regulation FD Disclosure
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On December 24, 2016, the Board of Directors of Sevcon, Inc. voted to propose to the stockholders at the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on February 7, 2017, that Sevcon’s certificate of incorporation be amended to fully declassify the Board of Directors so that, beginning with the 2017 Annual Meeting, all directors shall be elected annually to one-year terms.

In order to accommodate stockholders who may wish to submit nominations for director in light of the proposed change, on December 24, 2017, the Company extended the deadline provided in the Company’s by-laws for stockholders to make nominations of directors for the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to 12:00 noon EST on January 3, 2017. Such extension is conditional so that any nominations submitted during the extension period will be considered to have complied with the by-law deadline for nominations only if the proposed charter amendment to declassify the Board of Directors is adopted at the 2017 Annual Meeting and, if it is not adopted, any new candidate nominated after the original deadline of December 19, 2016, would not be eligible for election.
