This proxy statement supplement (the “Supplement”), dated April 24, 2018, supplements the definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) filed by Trinity Industries, Inc. (“Trinity” or the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 6, 2018 and made available to the Company’s stockholders in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) for the 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), scheduled to be held on May 7, 2018 at 8:30 a.m., Central Daylight Time, at the principal executive offices of the Company, 2525 N. Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, Texas 75207.
The Supplement is being filed with the SEC and is being made available to stockholders on or about April 24, 2018. Only stockholders of record on the books of the Company as of March 12, 2018 will be entitled to receive notice of and vote at the Annual Meeting.
The primary purpose of the Supplement is to provide subsequent information on Mr. Antonio Carrillo’s new position with the Company, which affects each of the “Proxy Statement Summary,” “Corporate Governance - Independence of Directors” and “Proposal 1 - Election of Directors - Nominees” sections of the Proxy Statement. Except as described in the Supplement, the information provided in the Proxy Statement continues to apply. To the extent that information in the Supplement differs from or updates information contained in the Proxy Statement, the information in the Supplement is more current. The Proxy Statement contains other important additional information. The Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.
Supplemental Disclosure Relating to Antonio Carrillo’s New Position with the Company
Beginning on April 23, 2018 and throughout the period in which Trinity continues to pursue the spin-off, as described in the Proxy Statement, Mr. Carrillo will serve as Trinity’s Senior Vice President and Group President over the Construction, Energy, Marine and Components Group. Mr. Carrillo’s compensation for his Senior Vice President and Group President role with Trinity, and his future President and Chief Executive Officer role with the new infrastructure company-which includes incentives for Mr. Carrillo agreeing to leave his prior employment as Chief Executive Officer of Mexichem S.A.B. de C.V., is as follows:
Annual salary - $850,000.
Annual incentive compensation target - $850,000, pursuant to the Company’s 2018 annual incentive program.
Annual long-term incentive target - $3,400,000, pursuant to the Company’s 2018 long-term incentive program.
One-time long-term incentive - $3,500,000 in restricted stock units in the infrastructure company which vest on the fourth year anniversary of the award if he is employed by the infrastructure company on such date. The restricted stock units in the infrastructure company are expected to be awarded upon the effectiveness of the spin-off transaction.
Other customary health and welfare benefits consistent with other Trinity executives.
While employed by Trinity, Mr. Carrillo will no longer be compensated as a non-employee director of Trinity.
