Item 5.02

Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 29, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of The Charles Schwab Corporation (“CSC”) adopted The Charles Schwab Corporation 2022 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2022 Stock Incentive Plan”), subject to stockholder approval. At the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of CSC held on May 17, 2022 (the “Annual Meeting”), CSC’s stockholders approved the 2022 Stock Incentive Plan.

A description of the material terms and conditions of the 2022 Stock Incentive Plan is set forth in the section entitled “Proposal Five: Approval of 2022 Stock Incentive Plan” on pages 71-77 of CSC’s definitive proxy statement relating to the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 1, 2022, which description is incorporated herein by reference. Such description is qualified by reference to the full text of the 2022 Stock Incentive Plan, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5.07

  (a)

The Annual Meeting was held on May 17, 2022. A total of 1,644,057,500 shares of CSC voting common stock were present in person or represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting. As of the close of business on March 18, 2022, the record date for the Annual Meeting, there were 1,816,003,557 shares of CSC voting common stock outstanding, with each share entitled to one vote on each matter presented for consideration at the Annual Meeting.

 

  (b)

The proposal to amend CSC’s Fifth Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), and Fourth Amended and Restated Bylaws, as amended (the “Bylaws”), to declassify the Board, which required the affirmative vote of 80% of all outstanding shares of CSC’s voting common stock, was not approved. The proposal to ratify of the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP as CSC’s independent auditors for the 2022 fiscal year was approved. The advisory vote on named executive officer compensation was approved. The proposal to approve the 2022 Stock Incentive Plan was approved. The Board’s proposal to amend the Bylaws to adopt proxy access, which required the affirmative vote of 80% of all outstanding shares of CSC’s voting common stock, was approved. The stockholder proposal requesting amendment to the Bylaws to adopt proxy access was not approved. The stockholder proposal requesting disclosure of lobbying policy, procedures and oversight, lobbying expenditures, and participation in organizations engaged in lobbying was not approved.
