This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (the "Amendment") amends the Current Report on Form 8-K of Cedar Fair, L.P. ("the Partnership"), as initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 7, 2017 (the "Original Form 8-K"). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Partnership's annual meeting of unitholders held on June 7, 2017 (the "2017 Annual Meeting"). The purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Partnership's decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future unitholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Partnership's named executive officers ("say-on-pay"). No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.
ITEM 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of future say-on-pay votes held at the 2017 Annual Meeting, 31,510,223 units voted for one year, 612,391 units voted for two years, 834,494 units voted for three years, 299,401 units abstained, and there were 22,979,137 broker non-votes. In light of the results of the advisory vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes, the Partnership's Board of Directors determined the Partnership will continue to hold an advisory say-on-pay vote annually until the occurrence of the next advisory vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes. The next advisory vote regarding the frequency of say-on-pay votes is expected to occur at the Partnership's annual meeting of unitholders in 2023.
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.
