Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

a.On June 11, 2021, the Company held its annual meeting of stockholders as a virtual meeting held over the internet via live webcast (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders voted on three proposals, each of which is described in more detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 23, 2021. Present at the Annual Meeting via webcast or by proxy were holders representing 96,459,700 shares of the Company's Class A and Class B common stock (the “Common Stock”), representing 289,806,395, or approximately 92.74%, of the 312,488,722 eligible votes, constituting a quorum.

b.The matters described below were voted on at the Annual Meeting and the number of votes cast with respect to each matter was as indicated.

Proposal 1. Holders of the Company’s Common Stock voted to elect the two Class II directors, each to hold office for a three-year term expiring at the Company’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders or until his or her respective successor has been duly elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation or removal. The final voting results are as follows:

c. A majority of the votes cast by the stockholders voted, on an advisory basis, to hold an annual advisory vote to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers, which was consistent with the recommendation of the Board of Directors included in the Company’s proxy statement.
