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

On October 26, 2017, Union Bankshares Corporation (the “Company”) held a special meeting of shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) in Roanoke, Virginia. At the Special Meeting, the shareholders of the Company were asked to consider and vote on the following proposals: (1) to approve the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of May 19, 2017, between the Company and Xenith Bankshares, Inc. (“Xenith”), including the related Plan of Merger, pursuant to which Xenith will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger Proposal”) and (2) to adjourn the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to permit further solicitation of proxies in the event there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve the Merger Proposal (the “Adjournment Proposal”). At the Special Meeting, the Merger Proposal was approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

At the Special Meeting, there were present in person or by proxy 33,900,821 shares of the Company’s common stock, which constituted a quorum to conduct business at the meeting.
