Explanatory Note

On December 13, 2016, Cable One, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Initial Filing”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to report, among other things, the promotion of Julia M. Laulis to President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, effective January 1, 2017.

This Amendment No. 1 amends the Initial Filing to include disclosure regarding Ms. Laulis’ compensation in connection with her role as President and Chief Executive Officer, as required by Item 5.02 of Form 8-K.

Item 5.02

In connection with Ms. Laulis’ promotion to President and Chief Executive Officer, effective January 2, 2017, her annual base salary was increased to $550,000, and her target annual cash incentive award with respect to 2017 was increased to 100% of her annual base salary, or $550,000.  As part of the Company’s regular annual grant of long-term incentive compensation, on January 3, 2017, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved equity awards to its executive officers, including Ms. Laulis. Ms. Laulis was granted stock appreciation rights with respect to 5,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, with an exercise price equal to $619.66, which was the closing price of the Company’s common stock on January 3, 2017, and which generally vest in four equal ratable installments beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date. Ms. Laulis was also granted a three-year performance-based restricted share grant with a target grant date value equal to $550,000 and a maximum grant date value of 200% of the target.  The long-term incentive awards were granted under the Company’s 2015 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2015 Plan”) and vesting is generally subject to Ms. Laulis’ continued employment through the applicable vesting date and achievement of any performance goals, which were selected from those specified in the 2015 Plan (or as otherwise provided in the award agreement).  The other material plans and arrangements in which Ms. Laulis participates are disclosed in the Company’s Proxy Statement, as filed with the SEC on March 31, 2016.
