Item 8.01
Other Events.

On February 14, 2020, Ingersoll-Rand plc (“Ingersoll Rand”) issued a press release announcing a record date of February 24, 2020 for the previously announced spin-off of Ingersoll Rand’s industrial segment. Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions, Ingersoll Rand will distribute all of the shares of common stock of its wholly owned subsidiary, Ingersoll-Rand U.S. HoldCo, Inc. (“Ingersoll Rand Industrial”), to Ingersoll Rand shareholders as of the record date by means of a pro rata distribution. Immediately following the spin-off, Ingersoll Rand Industrial will merge with a subsidiary of Gardner Denver Holdings, Inc. (“Gardner Denver”). In the merger, each share of Ingersoll Rand Industrial common stock will be converted into the right to receive a number of shares of Gardner Denver common stock determined in accordance with the merger agreement.

The spin-off and merger are expected to be completed on February 29, 2020, subject to certain remaining conditions including the approval by the stockholders of Gardner Denver.

A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference.

Gardner Denver has also filed a proxy statement, which has been sent to the Gardner Denver shareholders in connection with their vote required in connection with the proposed transaction. Ingersoll Rand shareholders are urged to read the prospectus and / or information statement that are included in the registration statements and any other relevant documents when they become available, and Gardner Denver shareholders are urged to read the proxy statement and any other relevant documents when they become available, because they will contain important information about Gardner Denver, Ingersoll Rand Industrial and the proposed transaction.
