Explanatory Note
Colony Credit Real Estate, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K on May 3, 2019 (the “Original Form 8-K”) reporting the final voting results of the matters submitted to a vote by the Company’s stockholders at the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders held on May 2, 2019 (the “Annual Meeting”).  The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company’s decision on the frequency of future advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation.
Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, at the Annual Meeting the stockholders approved, on an advisory, non-binding basis, and in accordance with the recommendations of the Company’s board of directors, one year as the frequency with which the Company will hold a non-binding advisory vote to approve the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive officers.  Consistent with the voting results, the Company’s board of directors reaffirmed its prior recommendation and determined that the Company will conduct future stockholder advisory votes regarding compensation paid to its named executive officers on an annual basis until the next advisory stockholder vote on the frequency of these advisory votes is held, which is currently required to be held at least once every six years. 


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
