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

(a)
The Annual Meeting of Christopher & Banks Corporation (the "Company") was held on June 26, 2019.

(b)
There were 38,197,347 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, and 30,700,172 of those shares were represented in person or by proxy, at the Annual Meeting.

Four items of business were considered by stockholders at the Annual Meeting:

the election of six directors to serve until the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualified;

an advisory vote on executive compensation as described in the Annual Meeting proxy statement (the "Say-on-Pay" vote);

ratification of the selection by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending February 1, 2020; and

to authorize the Company's Board of Directors, in its discretion, to amend the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock at a ratio of 1-for-3 to 1-for-8, such ratio to be determined by the Board of Directors.

The results of the voting on the election of director-nominees were as follows:
