Annual Meeting of Stockholders
May 19, 2011
Supplement to the Proxy Statement dated April 5, 2011
This supplement to the proxy statement dated April 5, 2011 relates to the proxy being solicited by the Board of Directors of Fuel Tech, Inc. (the “Company”) for the 2011 annual meeting of stockholders of the Company to be held on Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. local time at the Company’s corporate headquarters, located at 27601 Bella Vista Parkway, Warrenville, Illinois 60555. The proxy statement for the annual meeting was first mailed to stockholders on or about April 8, 2011.
Subsequent to mailing of the proxy statement, on May 10 2011, the Company engaged BNY Mellon Shareowner Services, LLC (“BNY Mellon”) to assist in the solicitation of proxies for the annual meeting as our proxy solicitor. The Company expects that it will pay BNY Mellon a base fee of approximately $10,000 plus fees for additional solicitation services, as needed. The Company has also agreed to reimburse BNY Mellon for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with the proxy solicitation and to indemnify BNY Mellon against certain losses, costs and expenses.
