Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
At a regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Calix, Inc. (the “Company”) held on March 30, 2017, the Board determined to move one of the directors from Class II (with a term expiring at the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders) to Class III (with a term expiring at the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders) following the retirement of Mr. Thomas Pardun from the Board on May 17, 2017 to achieve a more equal balance of membership among the three classes of directors. Accordingly, on May 17, 2017, Mr. Carl Russo resigned as a Class II director and was immediately re-appointed to the Board as a Class III director. The resignation and reappointment of Mr. Russo was effected solely to satisfy the requirements of the Delaware General Corporation Law, and for all other purposes, Mr. Russo’s service on the Board is deemed to have continued uninterrupted.
