Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure
At the annual meeting of stockholders of Sandy Spring Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) on May 18, 2022, the Chair of the meeting adjourned the meeting until Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 10:00 a.m., Eastern Time, with respect to the proposal to amend the Company’s articles of incorporation to eliminate the classification of the board of directors and provide for the annual election of all directors elected at or after the 2023 annual meeting in order to allow for additional voting.

While the proposal to declassify the board of directors received significant support, it did not receive the votes required for approval under the Company’s articles of incorporation, which is 80 percent of outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote at the annual meeting.

The annual meeting of shareholders was a virtual meeting and will resume on June 21, 2022 in the same format. The resumed meeting can be attended using the same access information that was used initially for the annual meeting, the details of which are set forth in the definitive proxy statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 6, 2022.

Voting has been closed on the election of directors and each of the other proposals before the annual meeting other than the declassification of the board of directors. The Company will include the results of the votes taken at the annual meeting on those closed matters in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC on or prior to May 24, 2022.
