To the extent applicable, the information set forth under Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 5.08.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously reported, on September 1, 2017, the Board of Directors of Dycom Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a change in the Company’s fiscal year end from July to January. Beginning with a six-month transition period ending January 27, 2018, the Company’s fiscal year will end on the last Saturday of January. As a result, on November 20, 2017, the Board of Directors scheduled the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”) for May 22, 2018. The exact time and location of the Annual Meeting will be specified in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2018 Annual Meeting. Because the date of the 2018 Annual Meeting is more than 30 days before the anniversary of the date of the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, a new deadline has been set for the receipt of shareholder proposals submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). If a shareholder intends to present a proposal at the 2018 Annual Meeting, such proposal must be received by the Secretary of the Company on or before December 13, 2017 to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2018 Annual Meeting. Any such proposals must also comply with the requirements of the Company’s Amended and Restated By-laws and Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act.
