Explanatory Note
This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (the Amendment) is being filed as an amendment to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Cintas Corporation (the Company) on October 26, 2023 (the Original Form 8-K). The Original Form 8-K was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) to report the results of the matters submitted to a vote of the shareholders at the Company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders, held on October 24, 2023 (the Annual Meeting). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to update disclosures made under Item 5.07, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, in the Original Form 8-K. Except as set forth herein, no other modifications have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

Item 5.07   Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders. 
As previously disclosed in the Original Form 8-K, at the Annual Meeting, in a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of the advisory vote on the compensation paid to the Company's named executive officers (say-on-pay), the Company’s shareholders voted in favor of holding say-on-pay votes every year. In accordance with this result and its previous recommendation (as set forth in the definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the SEC on September 5, 2023), the Board of Directors (the Board) determined that the Company will hold advisory say-on-pay votes on named executive officer compensation every year until the next required vote on the frequency of such say-on-pay votes or until the Board determines that it is in the best interest of the Company to hold such vote with a different frequency.


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.
