(e) On May 15, 2019, Town Sports International Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) at which the Company’s stockholders approved the Amendment No. 3 to the Company’s 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (as Amended and Restated Effective April 2, 2015) (the “Plan Amendment”) and authorized and reserved 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued thereunder. The Board of Directors of the Company previously approved the Plan Amendment on February 12, 2019, subject to stockholder approval.

The material features of the Plan Amendment are described in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for the Annual Meeting filed on April 2, 2019 (the “Proxy Statement”) in the Section entitled “Proposal Five — Approval of Amendment No. 3 to the Company’s 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (as Amended and Restated Effective April 2, 2015),” which description is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The above description of the Plan Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan Amendment filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1.

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

On May 15, 2019, the Company held its Annual Meeting. The following matters were submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders at the Annual Meeting: (i) the election of six directors to serve until the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualify; (ii) the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019; (iii) a non-binding advisory vote to approve the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive officers; (iv) a non-binding advisory vote to approve the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation; and (v) the approval of the Plan Amendment to increase the number of shares of the Company’s common stock authorized and reserved for issuance thereunder by 2,000,000 shares. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding and eligible to vote as of March 20, 2019, the record date for the Annual Meeting, was 27,959,299.

Each of the matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders at the Annual Meeting was approved by the requisite vote of the Company’s stockholders.
