Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhib


Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(d) On February 25, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Alliant Techsystems Inc. ("ATK") elected Michael Callahan to the Board effective March 1, 2014 and, in conjunction with Mr. Callahan's election, increased the size of ATK's Board from eight to nine members. Since 2008, Mr. Callahan has been the President and Chief Executive Officer of Aspen Partners, a Utah-based consultant to the outdoor sporting industry. From 1990 until his retirement in 2008, Mr. Callahan served in various merchandising, marketing, management and senior executive positions with Cabela's, Inc., most recently as Senior Vice President Business Development & International Operations. Prior to joining Cabela's, Mr. Callahan spent 15 years working in the outdoor recreation industry. The Board's Nominating and Governance Committee recommended Mr. Callahan's election to the Board. The Board also appointed Mr. Callahan to the Audit Committee, having determined that he meets the New York Stock Exchange's financial literacy and experience requirements for serving on that committee. The Board has determined that Mr. Callahan is an independent director under the New York Stock Exchange Corporate Governance Standards and that he meets the Securities and Exchange Commission's independence requirements for service on the Audit Committee. There was no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Callahan and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Callahan was selected as a director. As of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, neither Mr. Callahan nor any of his immediate family members is a party, either directly or indirectly, to any transactions that would be required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. Mr. Callahan will have the same compensation and indemnification arrangements as the other non-employee directors who serve on ATK's Board, which have previously been described in ATK's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A copy of the press release announcing Mr. Callahan's election is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
