Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
In the proxy statement that the Company provided to its stockholders in connection with the Company's 2018 annual meeting of stockholders (the "Annual Meeting"), the Board of Directors of the Company recommended that the stockholders vote, on an advisory basis, in favor of conducting future advisory votes on executive compensation every year.These advisory votes on executive compensation are periodic, non-binding stockholder votes to approve the compensation paid to the Company's named executive officers as disclosed in the Company's proxy statements and are required under Section14A(a)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and Rule14A-21(b) thereunder.
The Company held its Annual Meeting on May23, 2018. Of the 48,708,521shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of the record date for the Annual Meeting, 40,332,053 shares were represented at the meeting in person or by proxy, constituting 82.80% of the outstanding shares. In a non-binding advisory vote held at the Annual Meeting on the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation, 29,784,566 shares voted for one year, 85,433 shares voted for two years, 2,586,640shares voted for three years, 138,092 shares abstained and there were 7,737,322 broker non-votes.
Based upon these results, and consistent with the Board of Directors' recommendation to stockholders in the proxy statement for the Annual Meeting, the Company expects that it will continue to hold an advisory stockholder vote on executive compensation every year until the Company's 2024 annual meeting of stockholders, when the next stockholder vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation is required under the Exchange Act.
