(d)            On May 10, 2016, the Board of Directors of Oshkosh Corporation (the “Company”) increased the size of the Board from 12 to 13 members and elected Kimberley Metcalf-Kupres as a director to fill the vacancy resulting from that increase.  The initial term as director for Ms. Metcalf-Kupres will expire at the Company’s 2017 annual meeting of shareholders. The Board has determined that Ms. Metcalf-Kupres is independent under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and the Company’s criteria for determining director independence. As of the time of the election of Ms. Metcalf-Kupres, the Board includes 12 independent directors.  At the time of her election, the Board appointed Ms. Metcalf-Kupres to the Board’s Human Resources Committee, which is the only committee of the Board to which she has been appointed to date.
On May 10, 2016, in connection with her election to the Board, the Company awarded Ms. Metcalf-Kupres 2,100 shares of the Company’s common stock, which represents a prorated amount of the value of the Company’s latest annual stock award to non-employee directors.  The stock award was made under the Oshkosh Corporation 2009 Incentive Stock and Awards Plan, as amended and restated.  In addition, Ms. Metcalf-Kupres became entitled to receive the annual retainer paid to non-employee directors of the Company.
Ms. Metcalf-Kupres currently serves as Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Johnson Controls, Inc., a global multi-industrial leader serving customers in over 150 countries, a position she has held since May 2013.  From 2007 to May 2013, she served as Vice President, Strategy, Marketing and Sales of Johnson Controls, Inc.’s Power Solutions business. She has held numerous leadership roles of increasing responsibilities since joining Johnson Controls, Inc. in 1994.
There are no arrangements between Ms. Metcalf-Kupres and any other person pursuant to which Ms. Metcalf-Kupres was elected to serve as a director, nor are there any transactions in which the Company is a participant in which Ms. Metcalf-Kupres has a material interest requiring disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
