Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
As previously reported, at PPL Corporation's ("PPL" or the "Company") May 17, 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareowners, shareowners approved the proposal of the New York State Common Retirement Fund requesting that PPL, with board oversight, publish an assessment of the long-term impacts on the Company's portfolio, of public policies and technological advances that are consistent with limiting global warming to no more than two degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels.
In response, the Company's Board of Directors has directed the Company to prepare an assessment consistent with the shareowner request, and the scope and specifics of the matters to be addressed in the assessment is currently under review within the Company. It is the Company's current expectation that the assessment will be completed and publicly available not later than the date PPL files the proxy statement for its next Annual Meeting of Shareowners.
As provided in General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information contained in this Form 8-K shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall any such information be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
