Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

On May 23, 2019, Michael E. Stillabower, M.D. resigned as a director of Merit Medical Systems, Inc. (the “Company”), effective as of that date. Absent Dr. Stillabower’s resignation, his service as a director of the Company would have expired at the conclusion of the 2019 Annual Meeting discussed in Item 5.07 below. Dr. Stillabower did not advise the Company of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies or practices. Effective upon Dr. Stillabower’s resignation, the size of the Company’s Board of Directors was reduced from ten to nine directors.

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

On May 23, 2019, the Company held its 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”). A total of 54,976,099 shares of the Company’s common stock were entitled to vote as of March 28, 2019, the record date for the 2019 Annual Meeting, of which 50,391,447 shares were represented in person or by proxy at the 2019 Annual Meeting.

At the 2019 Annual Meeting, the shareholders of the Company voted on the following matters:

(1)
the election of three nominees, each to serve as a director of the Company until the annual meeting of the Company’s shareholders to be held in 2022 and until his or her successor has been duly elected and qualified;

(2)
a non-binding advisory proposal to approve the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers, otherwise known as a “say-on-pay” vote; and

(3)
the ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.

The results of each of the above matters are discussed further below.

Accordingly, each of the three nominees listed above was re-elected to serve as a director of the Company until 2022 and until her or his successor is duly elected and qualified.
