Explanatory Note
On May 10, 2011, Agree Realty Corporation (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) related to the Company’s 2011 annual meeting of stockholders held on May 9, 2011.  This Form 8-K/A is being filed in part to update the disclosures made under Item 5.07 of the Original Form 8-K regarding the frequency of future non-binding, advisory votes on executive compensation.
Item 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On August 15, 2011, upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, John Rakolta, Jr. was appointed to the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company, effective immediately, to fill the vacancy created by the increase in the size of the Board subject to re-election at the next annual meeting of the stockholders to be held in 2012.  Mr. Rakolta is the father-in-law of Michael Fitzgerald, the Company’s Vice President, Construction, and therefore, was determined by the Board not to be an independent director at this time.
Mr. Rakolta is the chairman and chief executive officer of Walbridge, a privately held, top-50 construction company founded in Detroit in 1916.  Mr. Rakolta serves as a director on the boards of The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, Detroit Downtown Partnership and Business Leaders for Michigan.  He is an Executive Committee member of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.  Mr. Rakolta was appointed Romania’s Honorary Consul General to the United States in 1998.  He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Marquette University in 1970.
Mr. Rakolta is not a party to any arrangement or understanding with any person pursuant to which he was appointed as a director, nor is he a party to any transactions required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K involving the Company or any of its subsidiaries.
Item 5.07. 
Submission of Matters to a Vote of Securities Holders.
As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in an advisory vote held at the annual meeting over a majority of the votes cast recommended that the Company hold future advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis.  In light of these voting results and other factors, the Board of Directors determined that the Company will hold future advisory votes on executive compensation on an annual basis until the next required non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of such votes on executive compensation.  The Company is required to hold advisory votes on frequency every six years.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
