On January 2, 2019, Hillenbrand, Inc. (the “Company”) filed its Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy Statement”) and Definitive Additional Materials on Schedule 14A consisting of the related Notice Card (the “Original Notice Card”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company has discovered clerical errors in the Original Notice Card that are not present in the Proxy Statement, including that when filed, the Original Notice Card had been incorrectly transcribed to list the record date as “December 14, 2019” (instead of December 14, 2018) and the deadline to request paper or e-mail copies of the Proxy Statement and related materials as “January 1, 2019” (instead of January 31, 2019). The printed notice card mailed to the Company’s shareholders contains the correct dates.

The sole purpose of filing this amendment to the Definitive Additional Materials is to correct the clerical errors. No other changes have been made to the Proxy Statement or to the Original Notice Card.
