Item 5.07

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

At the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Athenex, Inc. (the “Company”) held on June 11, 2019, the stockholders voted on the matters described below.

 

  1.

The Company’s stockholders elected three Class II directors to serve for a term of three years expiring in 2022 and until their successors are elected and qualified or, if sooner, until their earlier death, resignation or removal. The number of shares that (a) voted for the election of each director and (b) withheld authority to vote for each director is summarized in the table below:

   26,308,167         92,784

There were 10,963,994 broker non-votes with respect to the election of each director. Broker non-votes represent shares held by broker nominees for beneficial owners that were not voted because the broker nominee did not receive voting instructions from the beneficial owner and lacked discretionary authority to vote the shares on a non-routine proposal.

 

  2.

The Company’s stockholders ratified the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.
