This current report on Form 8-K/A amends the current report on Form 8-K filed by TriCo Bancshares (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 25, 2017, which reported the final voting results of the Company’s 2017 annual meeting of shareholders held on May 23, 2017. The sole purpose of this amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision regarding the frequency of future shareholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (“say on pay proposals”). No other changes have been made to the original Form 8-K filed on May 25, 2017.

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

The Company held its 2017 annual meeting of shareholders on May 23, 2017. A total of 19,763,903 shares of common stock were represented at the meeting in person or by proxy, which was approximately 86% of all shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. In a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of future say on pay proposals held at the meeting, 14,096,039 shares voted for one year, 155,217 shares voted for two years, 2,604,961 shares voted for three years, 180,959 shares abstained and there were 2,726,727 broker non-votes.

The Company’s board of directors has considered the outcome of this advisory vote and on August 22, 2017 determined, consistent with its recommendation to shareholders in the proxy statement for the 2017 annual meeting and the vote of a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares, that the Company will conduct future votes on say on pay proposals each year until the next advisory vote on the frequency of say on pay votes. The next advisory vote on the frequency of say on pay votes is required to occur no later than the Company’s 2023 annual meeting of shareholders.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
