Explanatory Note
On April 29, 2021, Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (“Westwood” or the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Initial 8-K”) to report the voting results of its 2021 Annual Meeting. This Amendment is being filed to correct a typographical error in the Initial 8-K regarding Proposal 4. The language regarding Proposal 4 incorrectly reported that the vote on the stockholders approval, on a non-binding, advisory basis, of the Company's executive compensation, did not receive the necessary votes required by law and was therefore not approved. The language regarding Proposal 4 should have stated that the stockholders approved, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the Company's executive compensation.

Except for the language regarding Proposal 4, all information set forth in the Initial 8-K Statement remains unchanged.
