To Our Stockholders:

 

The information contained herein supplements the definitive proxy statement of Omega Protein Corporation (the “Company”), which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 28, 2017 (the “Proxy Statement”), relating to the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Meeting”), which will be held on June 29, 2017 at 9:00 a.m., local time, at Hotel Granduca Houston, 1080 Uptown Park Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77056.

 

This supplement is being filed to file a revised proxy card for stockholders to use to vote in conjunction with the Meeting. Our revisions to the proxy card previously filed with the SEC on April 28, 2017 are intended to clarify the options available to stockholders of record to vote “for” or “against,” or to “abstain” from voting on, each director nominee and to reflect that the directors to be elected pursuant to Proposal 1 will require a majority of the votes cast. The revised proxy card does not make any other changes to the version previously filed with the SEC.

 

If you already voted “FOR” on all, or c ertain, director candidates on Proposal 1, the Company will assume that you continue to support voting to elect all, or certain, director candidates unless you complete a duly executed proxy or voting instruction bearing a later date. If you already voted “WITHHOLD” on all, or certain, director candidates on Proposal 1, the Company will assume that you continue to support voting against all, or certain, director candidates unless you complete a duly executed proxy or voting instruction bearing a later date. If you would like to change your vote to “ABSTAIN,” you will need to complete a new proxy or voting instruction; otherwise, the Company will treat your vote on this proposal as previously indicated.

 

This supplement does not update any other information set forth in the Proxy Statement.

 

 

Sincerely,

      

 

GARY R. GOODWIN

Chairman of the Board
