On May 27, 2014, the stockholders of Cole Credit Property Trust IV, Inc. (the "Company"), by an absolute majority of all votes entitled to be cast on the proposal at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of the Company (the "2014 Annual Meeting"), approved an amendment to the Company's charter (the "Charter Amendment"). For a description of the Charter Amendment, see the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 8, 2014. The Charter Amendment was filed with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation and became effective on May 29, 2014. A copy of the Charter Amendment is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

The Company held the 2014 Annual Meeting on May 27, 2014. Two proposals were on the agenda for the 2014 Annual Meeting: Proposal 1, to elect three directors to hold office until the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualify; and Proposal 2, to consider and vote upon the Charter Amendment, as described in Item 5.03 above. At the 2014 Annual Meeting, with respect to Proposal 1, all nominees standing for election as directors were elected to serve until the 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualify. The voting results for each of the three persons nominated were as follows: Nominee

No broker non-votes were cast in the election of directors. Proposal 2 required the affirmative vote of a majority of all votes entitled to be cast at the 2014 Annual Meeting in favor of the proposal. Based upon the percentage of the total shares of the Company voted with respect to the approval of the Charter Amendment, the requisite vote was not established at the initial convening of the 2014 Annual Meeting. To permit additional time to solicit stockholder votes solely with respect to this proposal, the 2014 Annual Meeting was adjourned until Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 3:30 p.m., Eastern time, at The CORE: Club located at 66 East 55th Street, New York, New York 10022.

The voting results with respect to Proposal 2 were as follows:
