Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security

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

(d) The Board of Directors (the "Board") of Heska Corporation (the "Company") is divided into three classes serving staggered three-year terms. The Company's Certificate of Incorporation requires the Company to ensure each class is as nearly equal in number as possible. As a result of the passing and retirement of directors in 2013, Sharon L. Riley, who was originally elected at the Company's 2012 annual meeting of stockholders to be a Class III Director with her term expiring at the 2015 annual meeting of stockholders, was moved to be a Class II Director to accommodate the Certificate of Incorporation requirement. The Board previously voted to expand the Board by one Class II seat beginning at the Company's 2014 annual meeting of stockholders and, as previously disclosed in the Company's proxy statement for its 2014 annual meeting of stockholders, if Dr. Robert B. Grieve was elected as a Class II Director at such meeting (thereby leaving a vacancy for a Class III director), Ms. Riley would be appointed as a Class III director for a term expiring at the 2015 annual meeting of stockholders.

As further described in Item 5.07 below, the Company held its annual meeting of stockholders on May 6, 2014, and Dr. Grieve was elected as a Class II director. In accordance with the foregoing, Ms. Riley was then appointed as a Class III director and Lead Director as of such date. Ms. Riley is a member of the Company's Corporate Governance Committee and Audit Committee.
