EXPLANATORY NOTE

This current report on Form 8-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the current report on Form 8-K filed by ConnectOne Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 22, 2018 (the “Original Form 8-K”). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, also held on May 22, 2018 (the “2018 Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future shareholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (“say on pay”). No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of future say on pay votes held at the 2018 Annual Meeting, 21,194,360 shares voted for one year, 73,502 shares voted for two years, 1,574,826 voted for three years, and there were 696,989 abstentions. The Company has considered the outcome of this advisory vote and has determined, as was recommended with respect to this proposal by the Company’s Board of Directors in the proxy statement for the 2018 Annual Meeting, that the Company will hold future say on pay votes on an annual basis until the occurrence of the next advisory vote on the frequency of say on pay votes. The next advisory vote regarding the frequency of say on pay votes is required to occur no later than the Company’s 2024 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

SIGNATURES

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
