Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions:
This Form 8-K/A is being filed as an amendment (Amendment No. 1) to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Boston Private Financial Holdings, Inc. (the Company) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 02, 2011 (the Original Filing). The sole purpose of this Amendment No. 1 is to disclose the Companys decision regarding how frequently it will conduct stockholder advisory votes on executive compensation. No other changes have been made to the Original Filing.
At the Companys 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Companys stockholders voted on, among other matters, a proposal regarding the frequency of future stockholder advisory votes on the compensation of the Companys named executive officers or future say-on-pay votes. As previously reported by the Company, a majority of the votes cast on the frequency proposal were cast in favor of holding an annual say-on-pay vote, which was in accordance with the Board of Directors recommendation.
After considering the voting results with respect to the frequency proposal and other factors, at a meeting held on July 26, 2011, the Companys Board of Directors decided that the Company will hold an advisory say-on-pay vote every year in connection with its annual meeting of stockholders until the Board of Directors otherwise determines that a different frequency for such advisory votes is in the best interest of the Company.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunder duly authorized.
