Amendment Description This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (“Form 8-K/A”) amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Anixter International Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Anixter” or the “Company”), with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on January 13, 2020 (the “Original Filing ”). This Form 8-K/A is being filed solely for the purpose of correcting a typographical error in the Original Filing related to the number of shares of common stock of WESCO International, Inc. (“WESCO”) that the stockholders of Anixter would receive in connection with the Merger (as defined below) and that forms the basis of the calculation of the value of the Merger Consideration (as defined below) for purposes of the treatment of Anixter stock options and restricted stock unit awards, from 0.2937 to 0.2397. This typographical error was present solely in the text of Item 1.01 of the Original Filing. The exhibits to the Original Filing, including the Merger Agreement (as defined below) and the joint press release, contained the correct number of shares of common stock of WESCO that the stockholders of Anixter would receive in connection with the Merger. No other modifications to the Original Filing are being made by this Form 8-K/A. This Form 8-K/A speaks as of the original filing date of the Original Filing, does not reflect events that may have occurred subsequent to the original filing date and does not modify or update in any way disclosures made in the Original Filing, except as otherwise set forth in this Form 8-K/A In accordance with Rule 12b-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the complete text of Items 1.01, 3.03 and 8.01 of the Original Filing, as amended by this Current Report on Form 8-K/A, which form a part of, and should be read together with, the Original Filing, are set forth below.
