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

On July 16, 2013, at a special meeting (the “Special Meeting”) of shareholders of Gardner Denver, Inc. (the “Company”), the Company’s shareholders approved the proposal to adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 7, 2013 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Renaissance Parent Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Renaissance Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Acquisition Sub”), providing for the merger of Acquisition Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. Parent and Acquisition Sub are beneficially owned by affiliates of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. At the Special Meeting, the Company’s shareholders also approved, by non-binding, advisory vote, compensation that will or may become payable by the Company to its named executive officers in connection with the Merger. Finally, the proposal to adjourn the Special Meeting to a later date or dates if necessary or appropriate to solicit additional proxies if there were insufficient votes to adopt the Merger Agreement at the time of the Special Meeting was not submitted for a vote.

The approval to adopt the Merger Agreement required the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the shares of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock as of the close of business on June 6, 2013, the record date for the Special Meeting. Approval, by non-binding, advisory vote, of compensation that will or may become payable by the Company to its named executive officers in connection with the Merger required the affirmative vote of a majority of those shares of common stock represented in person or by proxy and voting on the proposal. The vote to approve such compensation was advisory only and the result is not binding on the Company or Parent and is not a condition to completion of the Merger.

The issued and outstanding shares of stock of the Company entitled to vote at the Special Meeting consisted of 49,237,819 shares of the Company’s common stock, of which 38,247,028 shares, or approximately 77.68% of the issued and outstanding shares, were represented either in person or by proxy. The final voting results with respect to each proposal are set forth below.
