This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed to update the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) on January 30, 2017 (the “Original 8-K”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to report the final voting results of the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on January 26, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”).  The sole purpose of this amendment is to disclose, as required by SEC regulations, 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 modifications have been made to information contained in the Original 8-K.

Item 5.07 .   Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.


(d) Frequency of Stockholder Votes on Executive Compensation.   As reported in the Original 8-K, at the Annual Meeting, in accordance with the recommendation of the Board of the Directors, the Company’s stockholders recommended, by advisory vote, a one-year frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation.  In accordance with these results and its previous recommendation, the Board of Directors determined that future advisory votes on executive compensation will be held every year until the next required advisory vote on the frequency of stockholder votes on the compensation of named executive officers, which the Company expects to hold no later than its 2023 Annual Meeting.
