Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations
On October 2, 2023, the board of directors of the registrant set the date for the registrant’s 2023 annual meeting of shareholders (the “2023 Annual Meeting”) as November 14, 2023, and the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the 2023 Annual Meeting as October 12, 2023.
Because the date set for the 2023 Annual Meeting is more than thirty days from the anniversary date of the previous annual meeting of shareholders, the previously announced deadlines for any shareholder proposals pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise, are no longer applicable.
To be considered for inclusion in this year’s proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting, shareholder proposals and any suggestions regarding director nominations must be submitted in writing a reasonable time before the registrant begins to print and send its proxy materials relating to the 2023 Annual Meeting. Shareholders who wish to have a director nomination or proposal regarding any other matter of business considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act must submit such nomination or proposal to the Company’s Secretary at Consumer Portfolio Services, Inc., 3800 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 1400, Las Vegas Nevada 89169 on or before the close of business on Monday, October 9, 2023 (the “Deadline”), which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and distribute its proxy materials.
In addition to complying with the submission by the Deadline, shareholder director nominations and proposals intended to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting must also comply with all applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules, including Rule 14a-8, and California corporate law, in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
