Item 8.01. Other Information
Update on Presiding Director and Executive Sessions
AGCO Corporation (the “Company”) holds executive sessions of its non-management directors at each meeting of its Board of Directors. Robert J. Ratliff, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, currently presides over those meetings as presiding director. The Company encourages shareholders and other interested persons to communicate with Mr. Ratliff and the other members of the Board of Directors. Any person who wishes to communicate with a particular director or the Board of Directors as a whole, including any independent director, may send such correspondence to Stephen Lupton, Corporate Secretary, AGCO Corporation, 4205 River Green Parkway, Duluth, Georgia 30096. Such correspondence should indicate interest in the Company and clearly specify that it is intended to be forwarded to the entire Board of Directors or to one or more particular directors. Mr. Lupton will forward all correspondence satisfying such criteria.
We provide various corporate governance and other information on the Company’s website at This information includes:
    charters for the committees of the Board of Directors and our corporate governance guidelines, which are available in the “Corporate Governance” section; and
    the Company’s Code of Ethics, which is available in the “Ethics & Compliance” section.
In addition, should there be any waivers of the Company’s Code of Ethics, those waivers will be available in the “Ethics & Compliance” section.
This information is required by New York Stock Exchange Rules to be disclosed in the Company’s proxy statement. The Company inadvertently failed to identify the chairman as the presiding director at executive sessions in the most recent proxy statement.
