Explanatory Note

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Asta Funding, Inc. (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on December 3, 2018 (the “Original Form 8-K”). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Company’s 2018 annual meeting of stockholders held on November 30, 2018 (the “Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision as to the frequency of future shareholder advisory votes regarding the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers. Except as set forth herein, no other modifications have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

 

Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

 

As previously disclosed in the Original Form 8-K, in an advisory vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers held at the Annual Meeting, 236,694 shares voted for every year, 60,531 shares voted for every two years, 3,639,433 shares voted for every three years, 1,360 shares abstained and there were 1,530,368 broker non-votes. In accordance with these results and its previous recommendation (as set forth in the definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting), the Board of Directors of the Company has determined that the Company will hold future say-on-pay votes every three years.
