This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends and supplements the Current Report on Form 8-K of Corrections Corporation of America (the Company), originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 17, 2011 (the Initial Filing). The sole purpose for filing this Form 8-K/A is to disclose the Companys determination with respect to the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation paid to the Companys Named Executive Officers. No other changes have been made to the Initial Filing.
On May 17, 2011, the Company reported in its Initial Filing that a majority of the Companys shareholders cast an advisory vote for an annual frequency for future advisory votes on the executive compensation paid to the Companys Named Executive Officers.
Consistent with the shareholders advisory vote, the Companys Board of Directors has determined that the Company will hold future shareholder advisory votes on the executive compensation paid to its Named Executive Officers on an annual basis until the next vote on the frequency of such vote is conducted or until the Board of Directors determines that a different frequency of such votes is in the best interests of the shareholders of the Company.
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.
