Item 5.02

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

On September 21, 2015, the Board of Directors of KMG Chemicals, Inc., voted to add Robert Harrer to the Board of Directors.  His term will expire at the Annual Stockholders Meeting in 2015. There are no understandings or arrangements between Mr. Harrer and any other person by which he was selected as a director.  

Mr. Harrer is Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Innophos, Inc. Mr. Harrer joined Innophos in March 2014. He earned a master of business administration and mathematics from Albert Einstein University in Ulm, Germany in 1990.

Mr. Harrer was appointed to the Nominating and Governance Committee and the Audit Committee.  

Mr. Harrer and the Company will enter into the form of indemnification agreements that we have with our directors. Those agreements provide, among other things, that we will indemnify each director in the event that he becomes a party or otherwise a participant in any action or proceeding on account of his service as a director (or service for another entity in any capacity at our request) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Under each indemnification agreement, we have agreed to pay, in advance of the final disposition of any such action or proceeding, expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by each director in defending or otherwise responding to such action or proceeding. We have agreed to advance funds to the directors prior to the incurrence of such expenses in order that they may timely pay such expenses as they arise. The indemnification agreements provide for procedures to determine whether the directors have satisfied the applicable standards of conduct that would entitle them to indemnification, which procedures include a presumption that the directors have met such standard of conduct. The contractual rights to indemnification provided by the indemnification agreements are subject to the limitations and conditions specified in those agreements, and are in addition to any other rights the directors may have under our articles of incorporation and bylaws (each as amended from time to time) and applicable law. A copy of the form of the indemnification agreement is annexed as an exhibit to our Current Report on Form 8-K that we filed March 3, 2014.

A copy of the Press Release issued by the Company on September 21, 2015 to announce Mr. Harrer’s election is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this report on Form 8-K.
