The report is clear and describes the current status of BSM Higgs searches at ATLAS and CMS very well. Content-wise the report is good, but the author has been asked to submit a revised version with a few spelling mistakes fixed. A summary of the suggested language changes is attached below.

Requested changes

L32 Plack -> Planck
L40 “with discovered Higgs” -> with the discovered Higgs
L52 For mass -> For masses
L53 plus is neutrino -> plus a neutrino
L54 for mass above -> for masses above
L74 tan b -> tan \beta
Caption Fig.1: I suggest to put in a semicolon after the production mechanisms, i.e. Gluon gluon fusion; (bottom left) bb-associated …
L80: 36 fb-1 is the luminosity corresponding to 2015+2016 data, while in the text it says 2016 only
L95: I think it should be called \tau_{h} misidentification, i.e. removing the reference to the visible components b/c the hadronic tau decay is misidentified and the visible component hasn’t been introduced
L96 respectively -> respectively, (comma)
L100 fraction for to two -> fraction for the two
Fig.2/3: Could you swap the top and bottom row to be consistent with the caption and the order in the text?
L107 If H+- mass -> If the H+- mass
L110 plus is neutrino -> plus a neutrino
L110 If H+- mass -> If the H+- mass
L113 10-15%
L120 & L121Again only the 2016 data is mentioned while it is the data until end of 2016
L148 Decay chain -> Decay chains
L150 What is meant by “Four different type”? I think there is something missing here
L166 This variable use -> This variables uses or even better This variable exploits
L166 kinematic -> kinematics
L169 Z\tott -> Z\to\tau\tau
L199 final state -> final states
L204 two analysis -> two analyses
L207 limits are down to -> limits lower to or limits reduce to
L212 2016 data -> 2015+2016 data
