Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Other Events


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

A special meeting of shareholders (the "Special Meeting") of BBX Capital Corporation (the "Company") was held on April 29, 2014. The sole item of business at the Special Meeting was a vote of the Company's shareholders on the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 7, 2013, by and among the Company, BFC Financial Corporation ("BFC") and BBX Merger Sub, LLC (the "Merger Agreement"), which provides for the merger of the Company with and into a wholly owned subsidiary of BFC (the "Merger"). At the Special Meeting, the Company's shareholders approved the Merger Agreement. A summary of the voting results, as certified by the Inspector of Election for the Special Meeting, Georgeson Inc., the information agent for the Merger, is set forth below.

                   Votes           Votes                           Broker
                    For           Against       Abstentions       Non-Votes
                  29,235,851       881,793             4,872               0

Of the total votes cast at the Special Meeting, including abstentions, approximately 97% of the votes were cast in favor of the Merger Agreement and approximately 3% of the votes were cast against the Merger Agreement or abstained. In addition, although "majority-of-the-minority shareholder approval" was not a condition to closing the Merger, holders of a majority of the shares of the Company's Class A Common Stock outstanding and entitled to vote on the Merger Agreement and not beneficially owned by BFC or the Company's directors or executive officers voted in favor of the Merger Agreement.



Item 8.01 Other Events.

While the Merger Agreement was approved by the Company's shareholders, consummation of the Merger remains subject to certain other closing conditions, including, without limitation, BFC's Class A Common Stock being approved for listing on a national securities exchange (or interdealer quotation system of a registered national securities association) at the effective time of the Merger, holders of not more than 10% of the Company's common stock exercising appraisal rights, and the absence of any "Material Adverse Effect" (as defined in the Merger Agreement) with respect to either the Company or BFC. As previously disclosed, it is not currently expected that the Merger will be consummated prior to the first quarter of 2015. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, both the Company and BFC have the right to terminate the Merger Agreement at any time after April 30, 2014. There is no assurance that the Merger will be consummated on the contemplated terms, when expected, or at all.
