EXPLANATORY NOTE


This current report on Form 8-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the current report on Form 8-K dated June 7, 2021 filed by Aurinia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on June 10, 2021 (the “Original Form 8-K”). The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 7, 2021 (the “2021 Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future stockholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (“say on pay”). No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

Item 5.07
Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
(d) As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of future say on pay votes held at the 2021 Annual Meeting, 56,605,305 shares voted for one year, 956,039 shares voted for two years, 2,443,425 shares voted for three years, 1,841,663 shares abstained and there were 31,597,699 broker non-votes. The board of directors of the Company has considered the outcome of this advisory vote and has determined, as was recommended with respect to this proposal by the Company’s board of directors in the proxy statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting, that the Company will hold future say on pay votes on an annual basis until the occurrence of the next advisory vote on the frequency of say on pay votes.
