On May 4, 2017, LaSalle Hotel Properties (the "Company") filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the "Original Form 8-K") related to the Company's 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 4, 2017. This Form 8-K/A is being filed solely to update the disclosures made under Item 5.07 of the Original Form 8-K regarding the frequency of future non-binding, advisory votes on executive compensation.
SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS.
As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in advisory votes held at the Annual Meeting over a majority of the votes cast approved the Company's executive compensation and, consistent with the recommendation of the board of trustees, recommended that the Company hold future advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis. In light of these voting results and other factors, the board of trustees determined that the Company will hold future advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis until the next required non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of such votes on executive compensation. The Company is required to hold advisory votes on frequency every six years.
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 thereunto duly authorized.
