This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 13, 2018 (the “Original Form 8-K”) by DelMar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Company's 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on April 11, 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 stockholder 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, 1,456,454 shares voted for one year, 306,927 shares voted for two years, 7,992,940 shares voted for three years, 313,458 shares abstained, and there were 8,842,394 broker non-votes. 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 every three years 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 Stockholders.
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.
