ITEM 5.07. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY MATTERS
On June 2, 2017, Gartner, Inc. (“Gartner”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Report”) to report on the voting results of its 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 1, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”), including, among other things, the results of the stockholder advisory vote on the frequency of future stockholder advisory votes to approve executive compensation. This Amendment No. 1 to Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed to disclose Gartner’s decision as to how frequently it will propose a stockholder advisory vote on execution compensation.
As reported in the Original Report, an annual advisory vote on executive compensation was approved by a majority of the votes cast at the Annual Meeting. In light of the voting results, and consistent with its recommendation to shareholders, Gartner’s Board of Directors has decided that Gartner will hold an advisory vote on the compensation of Gartner’s named executive officers every year.
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.
