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

As previously disclosed, on December 13, 2021, Neogen Corporation (the “Company” or “Neogen”) entered into certain definitive agreements providing for the combination of the food safety business (the “Food Safety Business”) of 3M Company (“3M”) with Neogen in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction (the “proposed transaction”), including an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 13, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Nova RMT Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), 3M and Garden SpinCo Corporation, currently a wholly owned subsidiary of 3M (“SpinCo”), pursuant to which, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will merge with and into SpinCo (the “Merger”), with SpinCo surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

On August 17, 2022, the Company held a special meeting of the Company’s shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) to consider and vote on certain proposals in connection with the proposed transaction, each of which is set forth below and described in more detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on July 18, 2022 (as supplemented, the “Proxy Statement”). Holders of 84,957,941 shares of Neogen common stock entitled to vote at the Special Meeting were present in person or by proxy, representing approximately 78.78% of the total number of shares of Neogen common stock outstanding as of July 5, 2022, the record date for the Special Meeting. The final voting results of the matters presented and voted on at the Special Meeting are as follows:

1.
The proposal to approve the issuance of shares of Neogen common stock in connection with the Merger contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Share Issuance Proposal”), which was approved, was as follows:

For
Against
Abstain
Broker Non-Votes
65,783,967
19,077,082 96,892
0

A vote was not held on the proposal to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting to solicit additional proxies in the event that there were not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve the Share Issuance Proposal, the Charter Amendment Proposal or the Bylaw Board Size Proposal, because there were sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve each of these proposals.
