BRISBANE, CALIFORNIA, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GT Biopharma, Inc. (the “Company” or “GTB”) (NASDAQ: GTBP), a clinical stage immuno-oncology company focused on developing innovative therapeutics based on the Company’s proprietary natural killer (NK) cell engager, TriKE® platform, today announced that its 2022 Special Shareholders Meeting has been adjourned to October 10, 2022 at 11 a.m. PST due to lack of quorum for its previously scheduled meeting. The adjournment provides the Company with additional time to solicit the necessary proxies from its shareholders to achieve a quorum at the Special Shareholders Meeting.
The proposal for the Special Shareholders Meeting remains the ratification by shareholders of the inclusion of discretionary votes by brokers and other nominees holding shares for beneficial owners in the approval of the proposal submitted at the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting to reduce the Company’s authorized shares of common stock from 750 million to 250 million.
The transaction of business at the Special Shareholders Meeting requires a quorum of more than one-half of the outstanding shares of the Company entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy. The record date for the adjourned Special Shareholders Meeting remains the close of business on August 8, 2022. Shareholders 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 meeting unless properly revoked. Shareholders 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.
The Company urges all shareholders to vote their shares immediately to ensure their votes count in time for the Special Shareholders Meeting on October 10, 2022. If you have any questions or require any assistance in voting your shares, please contact GT Biopharma.
