This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) is being filed as an amendment to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (the “Company”) on May 19, 2017 (the “Original 8-K”). The Original 8-K was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to report the results of the matters submitted to a vote by the Company’s shareholders at the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 19, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose, in accordance with Item 5.07(d) of Form 8-K, the Company’s decision as to how frequently the Company will conduct future shareholder advisory votes regarding named executive officer compensation. Except as set forth herein, no other modifications have been made to the Original 8-K.
Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders
(d) At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders voted on, among other matters, an advisory proposal concerning the frequency of future advisory votes on named executive officer compensation. As reported in the Original 8-K, the Company’s shareholders approved, on an advisory basis, “one year” as the frequency for holding an advisory vote on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers. Consistent with the recommendation of the Board of Directors of the Company as set forth in the Company’s proxy statement filed with the SEC on April 4, 2017 and in light of the vote of the Company’s shareholders on this proposal at the Annual Meeting, the Company intends to hold the advisory vote on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers every year. The Company intends to continue holding such vote annually until the next advisory vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers is submitted to the shareholders.
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.
