Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders


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

On April 26, 2013, Escalade, Incorporated (the "Company") held its Annual Meeting of Stockholders for which the Board of Directors solicited proxies. At the Annual Meeting, the stockholders voted on the election of directors, the appointment of the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the Company's 2013 fiscal year, the approval, by non-binding vote, of the compensation of named executive officers and the approval, by non-binding vote, of the frequency to vote on compensation of named executive officers.

In the election of directors, as described in the Company's proxy statement relating to the Annual Meeting, the four incumbent directors whose terms were expiring were nominated for reelection for a two-year term. The three other incumbent directors are currently serving a two year term that will expire at the 2014 Annual Meeting. The results of the voting in the election of directors are as follows:

                                            Number of Votes
                    Director Nominee         For    Withheld

                    Robert Griffin        8,524,977  698,537
                    Robert Keller         8,473,874  749,640

Richard Baalmann, Jr. 8,549,693 673,821 Patrick Griffin 8,069,189 1,154,325

Therefore, Messrs. Robert Griffin, Robert Keller, Richard Baalmann, Jr. and Patrick Griffin were elected to the Board. There were 3,706,898 broker non-votes with respect to the election of each of the nominees.

As to the appointment of the firm, BKD, LLP, to serve as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the Company's 2013 fiscal year, the Company's stockholders ratified such appointment by a vote of 12,501,953 shares FOR, 391,714 shares AGAINST, and 36,745 shares ABSTAINED, with no broker non-votes. Therefore, the appointment of BKD, LLP was approved.

As to the approval, by non-binding vote, of the compensation of our named executive officers the Company's stockholders ratified by a vote of 8,921,299 shares FOR, 257,465 shares AGAINST, and 44,750 shares ABSTAINED. There were 3,706,898 broker non-votes. Therefore the compensation for our named executive officers was approved, by non-binding vote.

As to the frequency of future non-binding votes on executive compensation, the Company's stockholders voted 9,079,010 shares for ONE year, 25,946 shares for TWO years and 104,031 shares for THREE years. There were 14,527 shares ABSTAINED. Therefore, the frequency of future non-binding votes on executive compensation was approved, by non-binding vote, to be once a year. In light of such vote, the Company will include a non-binding vote on the compensation of its executive officers in its proxy materials every one year until the next required non-binding vote on the frequency of stockholder votes on the compensation of its executives.
