AN IMPORTANT REMINDER TO SUBMIT YOUR PROXY TO VOTE

AT OUR ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS TO BE HELD MAY 14, 2020

 

WALKER & DUNLOP, INC. BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS STOCKHOLDERS

VOTE “FOR” PROPOSAL 4 TO APPROVE THE 2020 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

 

The following disclosure supplements the Supplemental Proxy Materials (the “Supplemental Materials”) filed by Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 4, 2020 and made available to stockholders of the Company in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on May 14, 2020.

 

The Supplemental Materials disclosed the Company’s average burn rate of 1.9% from 2017 through 2019.  The following table summarizes the annual burn rates for fiscal years 2017, 2018, and 2019 and the three-year average burn rate:

(1)   Burn rate is equal to total equity awards divided by basic weighted average shares outstanding.

 

In calculating burn rate, we do not apply a multiplier or similar adjustment to full value equity awards. We believe that the application of such an adjustment in calculating the Company’s burn rate is inappropriate because the Company ceased awarding options following 2017.

 

Please read the complete proxy statement and accompanying materials carefully before you make a voting decision. Even if voting instructions for your proxy have already been given, you can change your vote at any time before the annual meeting by giving new voting instructions as described in more detail in the proxy statement.

 

If you have any questions or need assistance in submitting your proxy to vote your shares, please call our proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners, Inc., at (800) 322-2885 or [email protected]
