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

 

The Company’s 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”) was held on November 18, 2019 at the Company’s headquarters in Plymouth, Michigan. Of the 9,666,841 shares of the Company’s Common Stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting, a total 8,200,569 of shares (or approximately 84.83%) were represented in person or by proxy at the meeting. Set forth below are the final voting results for the proposals voted on at the 2019 Annual Meeting.

 

1.Election of six nominees to the Company’s Board of Directors for a one-year term expiring at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, or until their successors are duly elected and qualified:

 

Nominee For Number of Shares
Withheld
Broker Non-Votes
John F. Bryant 5,799,514 107,400 2,293,655
Jay W. Freeland  5,834,231   72,683 2,293,655
Sujatha Kumar 5,848,372   58,542 2,293,655
C. Richard Neely, Jr. 5,802,839 104,075 2,293,655
James A. Ratigan 5,835,780   71,134 2,293,655
William C. Taylor 5,825,333   81,581 2,293,655

 

As a result, each nominee was elected by the Company’s shareholders, as recommended by the Board of Directors. As previously reported in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on November 12, 2019, David Watza, who was nominated in the Company’s proxy statement for election to the Board of Directors, resigned from the Board of Directors prior to the 2019 Annual Meeting and withdrew his nomination for election to the Board of Directors at the 2019 Annual Meeting. As a result of Mr. Watza’s resignation, the Board reduced the size of the Board to be elected at the 2019 Annual Meeting to six members

 

2.Approval of an advisory vote on executive compensation (“Say-on-Pay”).

 

For Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes
5,601,971 141,810 163,133 2,293,655

 

As a result, the non-binding resolution to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers was approved by the shareholders on an advisory basis, as recommended by the Board of Directors.

 

3.Approval of an advisory vote on the frequency of the approval of executive compensation.

 

1 Year 2 Years 3 Years Abstain
5,199,068 4,324 675,363 28,159

 

After taking into consideration the vote of the Company’s shareholders, including the Board of Director’s recommendation to the Company’s shareholders for an advisory vote every year, the Board of Directors has determined that an advisory vote on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers that occurs every year is the most appropriate alternative for the Company until the next vote on the frequency of such advisory vote is conducted, which will be no later than the 2025 annual shareholders meeting, or until the Board of Directors determines that a different frequency for such advisory vote would be in the best interest of the Company’s shareholders.

 

4.Ratification of the selection of BDO USA, LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020:

 

For Against Abstain
8,173,842 12,986 13,741

 

As a result, the selection of BDO USA, LLP was ratified and approved by the Company’s shareholders, as recommended by the Board of Directors.
