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

On December 7, 2011, Ascena Retail Group, Inc. (the "Company") held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting"). At the Annual Meeting, the following items were voted upon: (1) the election of three directors to serve on the board of directors for three-year terms and until their successors are duly elected and qualified; (2) a proposal to consider the approval, by non-binding vote, of the compensation paid to the Company's named executive officers during fiscal 2011, known as the "say-on-pay" proposal; (3) a proposal to recommend, by non-binding vote, the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation, known as the "frequency of say-on-pay" proposal; and (4) the ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company's Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm for the fiscal year ending July 28, 2012. The voting results at the Annual Meeting, with respect to each of the matters described above, were as follows:

1.The three directors were elected based upon the following votes:

                     For           Withheld        Broker Non-Votes
David R. Jaffe     60,719,457       1,192,673          11,277,911
Klaus Eppler       59,282,780       2,629,350          11,277,911
Kate Buggeln       60,783,717       1,128,413          11,277,911

2.The compensation paid to the Company's named executive officers during fiscal 2011, known as the "say-on-pay" proposal, was approved, by non-binding vote, based upon the following votes:

For Against Abstain Broker Non-Votes 60,440,804 1,410,772 60,554 11,277,911

3.One year was approved, by non-binding vote, as the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation, known as the "frequency of say-on-pay" proposal, based upon the following votes:

1 Year 2 Years 3 Years Abstain Broker Non-Votes 55,294,001 67,901 6,523,994 26,234 11,277,911

In light of the results of the advisory vote on the frequency of future say-on-pay votes, the board of directors has determined that the Company will hold an advisory say-on-pay vote annually. The board of directors may reevaluate this determination after the next stockholder advisory vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes.
