On July 29, 2020, the Board of Directors of Amphenol Corporation (the “Company”) voted to increase the number of Directors from eight to nine.  Also, on July 29, 2020, to fill the resulting vacancy, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Rita Lane, 57, as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors effective immediately. 


Ms. Lane will receive cash and equity compensation as a non-employee director of the Company in accordance with the Company’s non-employee director compensation practices and plans described in the Company’s 2020 Proxy Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 13, 2020.  Ms. Lane will receive an interim grant of restricted shares under the 2012 Restricted Stock Plan for Directors of Amphenol Corporation.  This grant will be prorated from the date of her appointment to the Board of Directors until the Company’s next annual stockholders meeting.


The Board of Directors has determined that Ms. Lane is an independent director under the New York Stock Exchange listing standards. Ms. Lane has not yet been appointed to serve on any committees of the Board of Directors.  There are no transactions between Ms. Lane and the Company that would be reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.  There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Lane and any other person pursuant to which she was selected as a director.


A copy of the Company’s related press release, announcing the appointment of Ms. Lane described above, is attached hereto, with this report, as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference in this Item 5.02.
