This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A, or the Amended 8-K, is being filed as an amendment to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Velodyne Lidar Inc., (“the Company)”, with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 21, 2022, or the Original 8-K. The purpose of this Amended 8-K is to disclose the Company’s decision as to frequency of future shareholder advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers. No other changes are being made to the Original 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 Annual Meeting, 68,742,060 shares were voted to recommend that advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers be held every one year, 1,350,867 shares were voted for every two years, and 629,714 shares were voted for every three years. Based on the Board of Director’s prior recommendation and the results of the advisory vote on the say on pay frequency proposal, the Board has determined that the Company will hold a shareholder advisory vote on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers every year until the next required shareholder vote on frequency of advisory votes on the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers, which is required to occur no later than the Company’s annual meeting of shareholders in 2028.
