OLD REPUBLIC INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION (NYSE:ORI) Files An 8-K Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security HoldersItem 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders
FREQUENCY OF VOTING ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION: On May 26, 2017, the shareholders of ORI conducted a non-binding advisory vote on how frequent future advisory votes on executive compensation should be held. A plurality of ORI shareholders recommended that the Company hold an annual advisory vote on executive compensation. After considering this vote, the Board of Directors of ORI, at its recent meeting, decided that the Company will hold future advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis until the Company next considers this issue. It is anticipated that the Company’s shareholders shall again vote on the frequency of shareholder votes on executive compensation no earlier than 2020 and no later than 2023.
PROXY ACCESS: Also, on May 26, 2017, the shareholders of ORI voted in favor of a non-binding shareholder proposal requesting the Board of Directors adopt a By-Law commonly known as “Proxy Access”. After considering this vote at its recent meeting, the Board of Directors concluded that the Company’s longstanding governance structure and the management of the Company’s affairs, as they currently exist, have helped to produce industry-beating value for all of its long-term investors and important stakeholders. As a result, the Board concluded that the Company’s governance structure is appropriately designed to promote managing the business for the long term and no change to the Company’s By-Laws is warranted.
