Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
Item 5.07(a) and (b)
Collectors Universe, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2020 Annual Stockholders’ Meeting (the “Annual Meeting”) on December 10, 2020. The proposals voted on by the Company’s stockholders at the Annual Meeting consisted of (i) the election of eight (8) directors to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) for a term of one year or until their successors are elected (Proposal No. 1); (ii) ratification of the appointment of Grant Thornton, LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021 (Proposal No. 2); and (iii) approval, by non-binding advisory vote of the Company’s stockholders, of the compensation paid by the Company to its Named Executive Officers for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 (Proposal No. 3).
1. Election of Directors (Proposal No. 1). The eight candidates named below, all of whom were nominated by the Board, were the only candidates nominated for election at the Annual Meeting. As a result, the election of directors was uncontested. However, the Company’s Bylaws provide that, to be elected to the Board in an uncontested election, a candidate must receive a majority of the votes cast in the election of directors. As indicated in the table below, all eight candidates received a majority of the votes cast in the election of directors and, accordingly, were elected to serve on the Board for a term that will end at the next Annual Stockholders’ Meeting or until their respective successors are elected.
