Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security
Holders
.

(a)
On March 6, 2017, Barnwell Industries, Inc.
(“Barnwell”) held an annual meeting of stockholders.
(b) At the meeting, stockholders voted on the election of
directors, an advisory (non-binding) vote on executive
compensation, an advisory (non-binding) vote on the frequency of
the advisory vote on executive compensation and the ratification
of KPMG, LLP as the independent auditors for fiscal year 2017. A
total of 7,774,838 shares of Barnwell’s common stock outstanding
and entitled to vote were present at the meeting in person or by
proxy. All nominees were elected, the vote on executive
compensation was approved and the ratification of KPMG LLP as the
independent auditors for fiscal year 2017 was approved.
Considering that highest vote total with respect to the vote on
the frequency of the advisory vote on executive compensation
reflected a preference for a vote every 3 years, Barnwell’s
Board of Directors resolved to have Barnwell conduct such
advisory vote every 3 years until the next required vote on the
frequency of the advisory vote on executive compensation.
Barnwell is required to hold votes on frequency every six years.
The results of the meeting were as follows:
