Amendment of Material Compensatory Plan

The Company held its 2011 Annual Meeting of Shareholders on May 1, 2012 (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved an amendment and restatement to the Gardner Denver, Inc. Long-Term Incentive Plan (as amended and restated, the “Incentive Plan”). The Incentive Plan, among other things, increases the maximum number of shares of the Company’s common stock available for issuance under the Incentive Plan by 2,250,000 to 12,250,000; extends the termination date from December 31, 2012 to December 31, 2017; eliminates tandem stock appreciate rights (“SARs”) and limits free-standing SARs to ten years; clarifies that dividend equivalents may not be paid or accrue on “unearned” performance shares; clarifies that repricing of stock options or SARs is not permitted (except in connection with specified corporate transactions involving the Company) without shareholder approval; revises the limit on the maximum payout for long-term cash bonus awards and makes employees eligible to receive long-term cash bonuses; expands the list of business criteria applicable for performance based awards; provides more flexibility in the terms of director awards; provides for 90 days to exercise an option after termination (unless terminated for cause); clarifies that shares withheld for taxes and shares tendered as payment of an option price will be added back to the Incentive Plan as available shares; removes the 50% of Incentive Plan shares limit on restricted stock and RSUs; clarifies that authority may be delegated to our Chief Executive Officer to make awards (other than to nonemployee directors or employees subject to reporting requirements under Section 16 of the Exchange Act); and clarifies other provisions and limits in the Incentive Plan.

The Incentive Plan had been previously approved, subject to shareholder approval, by the Board of Directors of the Company. A summary of the Incentive Plan is set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 15, 2012 (the “Proxy Statement”). That summary and the foregoing description of the Incentive Plan are qualified in their entirety by reference to the text of the Incentive Plan, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
