Item 8.01 Other Events.

On August 24, 2016, Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors (the "Board") on August 19, 2016, increased and extended its previous share repurchase authorization as well as authorized the Company to execute accelerated share repurchase programs in support of the authorization. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Board, in its normal course, has spent a considerable amount of time reviewing business, financial and governance matters of the Company.  As a result of regular shareholder outreach, the Board has received shareholder feedback on the Company’s business, capital strategy and governance and compensation practices, including feedback supporting additional capital return and reductions in excess cash balances in a way that preserves the Company’s ability to reinvest in its business and seek growth opportunities. Based on its own review and the aforementioned shareholder feedback, the Board believes that the increased and extended share repurchase authorization is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.

Over the coming months, the Board will continue to examine the Company’s capital structure and operational initiatives. The Board anticipates making positive changes with regard to the Company’s governance and compensation policies that are consistent with shareholder feedback the Board received.  The Company will publicly disclose any additional actions taken once the Board concludes its review process.
