Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On February 12, 2019, TheStreet, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”). As of January 7, 2019, the record date of the Special Meeting, there were a total of 50,197,305 shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. At the Special Meeting, 47,101,179 shares of the Company’s common stock were represented in person or by proxy, and, accordingly, a quorum was present.


The following is a brief description of each matter voted upon at the Special Meeting, as well as the final number of votes cast for and cast against, as applicable, for each matter, as well as the number of abstentions and broker non-votes, as applicable, with respect to each such matter.


Proposal 1:


The vote to approve the sale by the Company of all of the membership interests of The Deal, L.L.C. on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, dated as of December 6, 2018, by and between the Company and Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC, for $87.3 million in cash, subject to adjustment as specified therein (the “Sale”), was as follows:


For  Against Abstain Broker Non-Vote
40,128,929 26,677 11,300 6,934,273


Proposal 2:


The vote to approve an amendment to the Company’s restated certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock, by a ratio of not less than 1-for-5 and not more than 1-for-20, and a proportionate reduction in the number of authorized shares of common stock, such ratio and the implementation and timing of such reverse stock split to be determined in the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company, was as follows: 


For  Against Abstain Broker Non-Vote
46,785,948 295,582 19,649 0


Proposal 3:


The vote to approve, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation that may be paid or become payable to certain of the Company’s named executive officers as a result of the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, including the agreements and understandings pursuant to which such compensation may be paid or become payable, was as follows:


For  Against Abstain Broker Non-Vote
34,929,961 4,999,031 237,914 6,934,273


Proposal 4:


The vote to approve an adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes in favor of the Sale, was as follows: 


For  Against Abstain Broker Non-Vote
46,778,735 313,820 8,624 0


Although the adjournment proposal was approved, adjournment of the Special Meeting was not necessary because the Company’s stockholders approved the Sale.


The Sale is expected to close on February 14, 2019.
