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

On June 7, 2022, Bumble Inc. (the “Company”) held its virtual 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) exclusively online via live audio webcast. The Company’s stockholders voted on two proposals at the Annual Meeting, each of which is described in more detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 22, 2022 (the “Proxy”). At the beginning of the Annual Meeting, holders representing 507,303,447 votes of the Company’s Class A common stock and 586,000,169 votes of the Company’s Class B common stock were represented in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting, which represented 99.01% of the 1,104,168,951 combined voting power of the shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting (voting together as a single class), and which constituted a quorum for the transaction of business. Holders of Class A common stock and Class B common stock have the number of votes per share as described in the Proxy.


At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders voted on the following proposals:

1.
To elect four Class I directors, each of whom is currently serving on the Company’s board of directors, each to serve a three-year term expiring at the 2025 annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor has been elected and qualified or until such director’s earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification, or removal from office.
2.
To ratify the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.
