Q:Can I change my vote?

 

A:You may change your vote at any time prior to the vote at the annual meeting. For shares held directly in your name, you may accomplish this by granting a new proxy bearing a later date (which automatically revokes the earlier proxy), by revoking your proxy or by attending the annual meeting and voting in person. Attendance at the meeting will not cause your previously granted proxy to be revoked unless you specifically revoke your proxy or vote at the annual meeting. For shares you hold beneficially, you may change your vote by submitting new voting instructions to your broker or nominee or, if you have obtained a “legal proxy” from your broker or nominee giving you the right to vote your shares, by attending the meeting and voting in person. If you decide to revoke your proxy, you should send a written notice of revocation to Mr. Steven Rogers, Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary, Aceto Corporation, 4 Tri Harbor Court, Port Washington, New York 11050.

 

Q:Who can help answer my questions?

 

A:If you have any questions about the annual meeting or how to vote or revoke your proxy, you should contact Mr. Steven Rogers, Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary by mail to Aceto Corporation, 4 Tri Harbor Court, Port Washington, New York 11050 or by phone at 516-627-6000. Also, if you need additional copies of this proxy statement or voting materials, you should contact Mr. Rogers.

 

Q:How are votes counted?

 

A:In the election of directors, you may vote FOR all of the seven nominees or you may direct your vote to be WITHHELD with respect to one or more of the seven nominees. In the vote with respect to the performance goals under our Executive Performance Award Plan, you may vote FOR approval of the material terms of the performance goals, AGAINST approval of such terms or you may ABSTAIN from voting on this proposal. In the advisory vote on executive compensation, you may vote FOR, AGAINST, or you may ABSTAIN from voting with respect to the approval of the compensation of the named executive officers as disclosed pursuant to the compensation disclosure rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the compensation tables and any related material disclosed in this proxy statement. In the advisory vote on the frequency of holding an advisory vote on executive compensation, you may vote FOR every year, FOR every two years, FOR every three years, or ABSTAIN. In the ratification of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, you may vote FOR ratification, AGAINST ratification or you may ABSTAIN from voting with respect to ratification. If you provide specific instructions, your shares will be voted as you instruct. If you sign your proxy card or voting instruction card or vote over the Internet with no further instructions, your shares will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of the Board FOR all of the Company’s nominees, FOR approval of the material terms of the performance goals under our Executive Performance Award Plan, FOR approval of the compensation of the named executive officers as described above,  FOR EVERY YEAR on the frequency of holding an advisory vote on executive compensation, FOR ratification of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and in the discretion of the proxy holders on any other matters that properly come before the meeting. If any other matters properly arise at the meeting, your proxy, together with the other proxies received, will be voted at the discretion of the proxy holders.

 

Q:What is a quorum and why is it necessary?

 

A:Conducting business at the meeting requires a quorum. The presence, either in person or by proxy, of the holders of one-third of the Company’s shares of common stock outstanding on October 10, 2017 is necessary to constitute a quorum. For the purposes of determining a quorum, shares held by brokers or nominees from whom we receive a signed or electronically transmitted proxy will be treated as present even if the broker or nominee does not have discretionary power to vote on a particular matter, or if instructions were never received from the beneficial owner. These shares are called “broker non-votes.” Abstentions will be counted as present for quorum purposes.
