Explanatory Note
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 8, 2018 (the "Original Filing") by Owens Realty Mortgage, Inc. (the "Company"). The Original Filing reported, among other things, the expansion of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") from six to eight members and the appointment of Gilbert E. Nathan and Benjamin Smeal as independent members of the Board to fill the two vacancies created by such expansion. At the time of the Original Filing, the Board had not determined committee assignments for Messrs. Nathan and Smeal. The Company hereby amends the Original Filing to include information on the standing committee assignments of Messrs. Nathan and Smeal and to voluntarily disclose additional changes to the composition of the Board's standing committees. Other than providing the additional information in Item 5.02 below, no other disclosure in the Original Filing is amended by this Form 8-K/A.
Item 5.02.  Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Effective August 14, 2018, the Board appointed Mr. Nathan as a member of the Company's Audit Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, and appointed Mr. Smeal as a member of the Company's Compensation Committee and newly-formed Loan  Committee.

Following these appointments and additional changes in committee assignments, all members of the Board's standing committees are independent and the composition of such standing committees is as follows: (1) the Audit Committee consists of Gary C. Wallace as Chairperson, and Ann Marie Mehlum and Mr. Nathan as members; (2) the Compensation Committee consists of Steven D. Hovde as Chairperson, and Dennis G. Schmal and Mr. Smeal as members; (3) the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee consists of Mr. Schmal as Chairperson, and each of Messrs. Wallace and Nathan as members; and (4) the Loan Committee consists of Ms. Mehlum as Chairperson, and each of Messrs. Hovde and Smeal as members.

The new Loan Committee was formed, effective August 14, 2018, to have such responsibilities relating to the Company's loans and related activities as shall be set forth in a committee charter to be drafted and approved by the Loan Committee and the full Board.  A copy of such Loan Committee charter will be published on the Company's website,, promptly following finalization and approval by the Board.
