This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed as an amendment (“Amendment No. 1”) to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Blyth, Inc. with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on June 9, 2011 (“Original Filing”). The sole purpose of this Amendment No. 1 is to disclose Blyth’s decision as to how frequently it will conduct future shareholder votes on executive compensation. No other changes have been made to the Original Filing.
(d) As reported in the Original Filing, at Blyth’s 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 9, 2011, 3,825,472 of the votes cast by stockholders were voted, on an advisory basis, in favor of holding future advisory votes on named executive officer compensation every three years and 3,273,960 of the votes cast by stockholders were voted, on an advisory basis, in favor of holding future advisory votes on named executive officer compensation every year. In light of the close voting results and other factors, Blyth’s Board of Directors has decided that future advisory votes on named executive officer compensation will be held every year until the next advisory vote on the frequency of such votes, which in accordance with applicable law, will occur no later than Blyth’s Annual Meeting in 2017.
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.
