Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
On June 27, 2019, American Church Mortgage Company (the “Company”) held its 2019 annual meeting of shareholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”). At the 2019 Annual Meeting, the matters voted upon, including the number or votes cast for, against or withheld, as well as the number of abstentions and broker–non-votes, as to each such matter were as follows:
Proposal 1: All four ofthe Company’s nominees for director as listed in the Company’s 2019 proxy statement were elected with the number of votes cast for each nominee as follows:
|Philip J. Myers||615,326||14,042||4,849|
|Dennis J. Doyle||590,940||38,428||4,849|
|Michael G. Holmquist||581,370||23,228||4,849|
Proposal 2:The Company’s shareholders ratified the Company’s Board of Directors amendment to the Company’s Financing Policies to increase the percentage of mortgage-debt securities (church bonds) that may be held by the Company from 30% to 40% and a related interpretation. Because the policy is incorporated into the Company’s Bylaws by virtue of Bylaw Section 3.20, the revision constitutes an amendment to the Company’s Bylaws.
Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.
On June 27, 2017, as noted above, the Company’s shareholders ratified the Board of Directors amendment to the Company’s Financing Policies to increase the percentage of mortgage-secured debt securities (church bonds) that may be held by the Company from 30% to 40%. In particular, the policy as amended, reads as follows:
“The total principal amount of mortgage-secured debt securities we purchase from churches and other non-profit religious organizations is limited to 40% of our Average Invested Assets.”
Because the policy is incorporated into the Company’s Bylaws by virtue of Bylaw Section 3.20, the revision constitutes an amendment to the Company’s Bylaws.
In addition, on June 27, 2019, the Company’s shareholders ratified two Board interpretation policies. Both policies were initially approved by the Board on April 18, 2018 and both relate to how the percentage of Average Invested Assets is calculated. In particular, the interpretation policies provide that:
|(i)||In calculating the percentage of mortgage-secured debt securities held as of any date, the principal amount of mortgage-secured debt securities held shall exclude the principal amount of any mortgage-secured debt securities that have been in default for more than six (6) consecutive months as of such determination date;|
|(ii)||In determining the percentage of mortgage-secured debt securities held as Average Invested Assets, the amount of loan assets included in the determination shall be increased by the principal amount of mortgage-secured debt securities held by the Company on the determination date where the Company purchased 100% of the Series of such mortgage-secured debt securities issued by an issuer and the Company continues to own 100% of such bond issue on the determination date.|
The Company’s shareholders also ratified a further clarification by the Board that makes clear that 100% owned mortgage-secured debt securities shall be treated as mortgage-secured debt securities for purposes of determining the advisory fee to be paid to the Advisor based on such assets.
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.
