Voltari Corporation Announces Adjournment of Special Meeting of Common Stockholders
Tuesday, August 20, 2019 3:20 PM
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 20, 2019 / Voltari Corporation (OTCQB:VLTC) (the “Company” or “Voltari”) convened and then, following the affirmative vote of a majority of shares of common stock cast at the special meeting of common stockholders held to approve the adoption of the merger agreement by and among the Company, Voltari Merger Sub LLC (“Merger Sub”), and Starfire Holding Corporation (“Parent”), adjourned the special meeting.
The special meeting of common stockholders will reconvene on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. (Eastern time), at the offices of Brown Rudnick LLP, 7 Times Square, New York, NY 10036. The record date for common stockholders entitled to vote at the special meeting remains July 10, 2019. No changes have been made to the merger proposal to be voted on by stockholders at the special meeting.
The approval of the merger agreement requires the affirmative vote of both (i) the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote on the adoption of the merger agreement (the “Stockholder Vote”) and (ii) the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote on the adoption of the merger agreement that are not beneficially owned by Parent, Merger Sub or their affiliates (the “Unaffiliated Stockholder Vote”). Based on a preliminary assessment of votes received by the Company’s proxy solicitor, although it appears that over 90% of those unaffiliated stockholders that have voted, have voted in favor of the merger agreement, and that the Stockholder Vote has been satisfied, the Unaffiliated Stockholder Vote had not been satisfied at the original time of the special meeting. Accordingly, the special meeting is being adjourned to provide the Company with additional time to solicit proxies from its stockholders to obtain the Unaffiliated Stockholder Vote.
Voltari common stockholders who have not voted but wish to do so should contact D.F. King & Co., Inc., Voltari’s proxy solicitor, by calling toll-free at (877) 297-1746.
If you have not submitted a proxy, you are urged to do so promptly. No action is required by any stockholder who has previously delivered a proxy and who does not wish to revoke or change that proxy. Information about voting or revoking a proxy is included in the definitive proxy statement filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 10, 2019, which is available without charge on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.
Voltari is in the business of acquiring, financing and leasing commercial real properties. The Company leases its properties and intends to lease any future properties pursuant to “double net” or “triple net” leases.
