CURRENT REPORT ON FORM 8-K/A
|ITEM 5.07.||Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders|
|(a)||On May 23, 2018, Emclaire Financial Corp (the "Corporation") reconvened its Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting"), which was adjourned on April 25, 2018 with respect to the proposal to amend the Corporation's Articles of Incorporation to eliminate the current supermajority voting provision for a merger or similar transaction in certain circumstances.|
At the Annual Meeting, there were 2,143,540 shares of common stock present, in person or by proxy, and 2,271,139 shares of common stock were outstanding on March 1, 2018, the voting record date for the Annual Meeting.
|(b)||Set forth below are the results of the matter which was acted upon by the Corporation’s shareholders at the reconvened Annual Meeting:|
|1.||Proposal to amend the Corporation's Articles of Incorporation to eliminate the current supermajority voting provision for a merger or similar transaction in certain circumstances:|
The proposal to amend the Corporation's Articles of Incorporation was adopted by the requisite vote of more than 80% of the outstanding shares of common stock at the Annual Meeting.
|ITEM 5.03||Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year|
On May 23, 2018, the Corporation filed Articles of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to amend Article 8 of its Articles of Incorporation. The amendment was approved by the Board of Directors of the Corporation on January 17, 2018 and approved by the shareholders of the Corporation on May 23, 2018.
The amended Article 8 of the Corporation’s Articles of Incorporation reduced the previous 80% vote requirement for approval of mergers and similar transactions by shareholders to two-thirds of the outstanding shares of common stock and eliminated the supermajority vote requirement if the transaction is first approved by a majority of the Board of Directors. In the event a merger or similar transaction is first approved by the Board of Directors, then a vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders will be sufficient shareholder approval unless a higher vote is required by Pennsylvania law. The amended Article 8 provides for a two-thirds supermajority vote of shareholders for a merger or similar transaction if the transaction is not first approved by the Board of Directors. The amended Article 8 also makes clear that no approval of the Corporation’s shareholders is be required for a merger or similar transaction when the Corporation is the surviving entity, unless otherwise required by law.
The Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, which are attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 3.1, are incorporated herein by reference. The description of the amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 3.1.
