This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by LendingTree, Inc. (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 20, 2017 (the “Original Report”), relating to the voting results of the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 14, 2017 (the “2017 Annual Meeting”). This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends the Original Report for the sole purpose of disclosing the Company’s decision on the frequency of future “say-on-pay” votes. Say-on-pay votes are periodic, nonbinding stockholder votes to approve the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive officers as disclosed in the Company’s proxy statements.
Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
In the proxy statement that the Company provided to stockholders in connection with the 2017 Annual Meeting, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) recommended that the stockholders vote, on an advisory basis, in favor of a frequency of every three years for future “say-on-pay” votes. At the 2017 Annual Meeting, a majority of the shares voting on the matter voted in favor of a frequency of every three years for say-on-pay votes. Accordingly, in light of this result and other factors considered by the Board, the Board has determined that the Company will include an advisory vote of stockholders on executive compensation in the Company’s proxy materials every three years.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
