Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 28, 2024, BGC Group, Inc. (the “Registrant,” “we,” “us,” “BGC Group,” “BGC,” or the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that it has updated its outlook for the quarter ending June 30, 2024. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

The information in this Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K are being furnished under Item 7.01 of Form 8-K. Such information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.

Discussion of Forward-Looking Statements about BGC

Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding BGC that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These include statements about BGC’s business, results, financial position, liquidity and outlook, which may constitute forward-looking statements and are subject to the risk that the actual impact may differ, possibly materially, from what is currently expected. Except as required by law, BGC undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements. For a discussion of additional risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements, see BGC’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including, but not limited to, the risk factors and Special Note on Forward-Looking Information set forth in these filings and any updates to such risk factors and Special Note on Forward-Looking Information contained in subsequent reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q or Form 8-K.


Item 8.01. Other Events.

The Board of Directors of the Company has changed the date of the Company’s 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2024 Annual Meeting”) to September 16, 2024. The exact time and place of the 2024 Annual Meeting will be specified in our Notice of 2024 Annual Meeting and related proxy statement for the 2024 Annual Meeting.

Because the date of the 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders has been changed by more than 30 days since the first anniversary of our 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Board has set a new deadline for the receipt of any stockholder proposals submitted for the 2024 Annual Meeting. If a stockholder desires to present a proposal for inclusion in our proxy statement for the 2024 Annual Meeting, the proposal must be submitted in writing to us for receipt not later than July 8, 2024. Additionally, to be included in our proxy materials, proposals must comply with the proxy rules relating to stockholder proposals, in particular Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act. Stockholders who wish to raise a proposal for consideration at the 2024 Annual Meeting, but who do not wish to submit a proposal for inclusion in our proxy materials pursuant to Rule 14a-8, should comply with our bylaws and deliver to us a copy of their proposal no later than July 8, 2024. If a stockholder fails to provide such notice, the respective proposal need not be addressed in our proxy materials and the proxies may exercise their discretionary voting authority if the proposal is raised at the 2024 Annual Meeting. In addition to satisfying the requirements of the advance notice provisions of our bylaws, stockholders who intend to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than our nominees must provide us with the information required by Rule 14a-19(b) under the Exchange Act. In any case, proposals should be sent to BGC Group, Inc., 499 Park Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10022, Attention: Corporate Secretary.
