As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2017 (the “Original Form 8-K”), Callon Petroleum Company (the “Company”) reported the voting results of the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) held on May 11, 2017. The sole purpose of this amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision regarding the frequency of future shareholder advisory votes on the compensation of its named executive officers. Except as set forth herein, no other modifications have been made to information contained in the Original Form 8-K.

Section 5 - Corporate Governance and Management

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

As reported in the Original Form 8-K, at the Annual Meeting, in accordance with the recommendation of the Board of Directors, the Company’s shareholders approved, on an advisory basis, “Every Year” as the preferred frequency of solicitation of shareholder advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers. Consistent with the voting results at the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors of the Company has determined to hold an annual non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation. Accordingly, the Company will request an advisory vote on executive compensation annually through 2023, when the next shareholder vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes is required, or until the Board of Directors otherwise determines that a different frequency for such votes is in the best interests of the Company’s 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 hereunto duly authorized.
