Prior to the Share Purchase (as defined in Item 5.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K), to Vantiv, Inc.’s (“Vantiv” or the “Company”) amended and restated certificate of incorporation, Fifth Third Bank was entitled to elect one director to the Company’s board of directors as its ownership represented more than 9.09% of the Company’s outstanding ClassA common stock and ClassB common stock. Upon the consummation of the Share Purchase, Fifth Third Bank holds approximately 8.6% of the Company’s ClassA common stock and ClassB common stock and is no longer entitled to appoint a director to the Company’s board of directors. Accordingly, the Company has decreased the size of its board of directors to 10 members, and Lars Anderson, the Fifth Third Bank director, resigned from the Company’s board effective August9, 2017.
