Item 8.01. Other Events.
On September 28, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time, the Registrant convened a special meeting of its stockholders. At that time, there were not present (represented in person or by proxy) a sufficient number of shares of the Registrant’s common stock to constitute a quorum (i.e. a majority of the outstanding shares of the Registrant’s common stock entitled to vote as of the record date). Accordingly, the Registrant adjourned the special meeting to October 10, 2022 at 11 a.m. Pacific time. The adjournment provides the Registrant with additional time to solicit the necessary proxies from its stockholders to achieve a quorum at the special meeting.
The close of business on August 8, 2022 will remain the record date for determination of the Registrant’s stockholders entitled to vote at the special meeting. Stockholders who have already voted do not need to recast their votes unless they wish to change their votes. Proxies previously submitted will be voted at the reconvened special meeting unless properly revoked. Stockholders who have not already voted or wish to change their vote are encouraged to do so promptly using the instructions provided in their voting instruction form or proxy card.
No changes have been made to the proposal to be voted on by stockholders at the special meeting, the proposal to ratify the inclusion of discretionary votes by brokers and other nominees holding shares for beneficial owners in the approval of the proposal submitted at the Registrant’s 2022 Annual Meeting to reduce the Registrant’s authorized shares of common stock from 750 million shares to 250 million shares.
The Registrant urges all stockholders to vote their shares immediately to ensure their votes count in time for the reconvened special meeting on October 10, 2022.
On October 4, 2022, the Registrant issued a press release announcing the adjournment of the special meeting. A copy of the press release is furnished hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
