Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders


An annual meeting (the “Meeting”) of the shareholders of MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (the “Company”) was held on September 8, 2016, at the offices of Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference, 61 Broadway, 32nd Floor, New York, New York 10006. The Company filed its definitive proxy statement for the proposals voted upon at the Meeting with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 15, 2016, and received the final tabulation of its shareholders’ votes on September 8, 2016.


The following proposal was voted upon by the stockholders at the Meeting:


A proposal to re-elect or elect five directors, each such director to serve until the next annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualified or until their earlier resignation, removal or death.


All director nominees were re-elected/elected and the votes cast were as follows:


Director  For   Withheld   Broker non-votes 
H. Robert Holmes   6,959,475    129,780    11,759,973 
Michael Onghai   6,962,399    126,867    11,759,973 
Robert B. Ladd   6,867,829    221,426    11,759,973 
John McAfee   7,036,148    53,107    11,759,973 
Nolan Bushnell   6,954,487    134,768    11,759,973 


The following proposals were also approved by the stockholders during the Meeting:


  The appointment of Friedman LLP as the Company’s Independent Registered Public Accountant for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016;
  The authorization of the issuance of 43,800,000 shares of common stock to those sellers set forth in that certain Asset Purchase Agreement dated May 9, 2016, as amended July 7, 2016;
  The approval of the Company’s 2016 Stock Option Plan and the issuance of options and restricted stock under the Plan;
  Authorize the Company’s Board of Directors to reduce the ratio of the previously approved reverse stock split from a range of 1-for-8 to 1-for-40 to a ratio of not less than 1-for-2, as well as to extend the time allotted for implementation of the stock split; and
  The Company’s proposal to ratify the employment agreements entered into by the Company with Robert Ladd and John McAfee.


The following proposals were not approved during the meeting:


  An amendment to the Company’s restated certificate of incorporation to increase the Company’s authorized common stock from 75,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares of common stock.
  The Company’s proposal to ratify an amendment to the Company’s restated certificate of incorporation to change its name to “John McAfee Global Technologies, Inc.”

However, since the name change does not require shareholder ratification the Corporation’s board of directors will consider the overwhelming not in favor of the name change and will proceed with such change.
