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

The Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (the “Company”) was held on September 5, 2019 (the “Meeting”).

All nominees for election to the Board of Directors of the Company as directors were elected to serve until the next Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified, or until the earlier of such director’s death, resignation or removal.
