SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 23, 2021 / MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY) ("MoSys" or the "Company"), a provider of high-speed semiconductor solutions, today announced that its special meeting of stockholders, which was originally scheduled for November 23, 2021 (the "Special Meeting"), was convened and adjourned due to lack of the required quorum.
The Special Meeting has been adjourned to 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 and will be held via a live webcast to allow additional time for the Company's stockholders to vote on the proposals set forth in the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC" ) on October 18, 2021.
During the current adjournment, the Company continues to solicit votes from its stockholders with respect to the proposals set forth in the Company's proxy statement. The Company has engaged a proxy solicitor, Kingsdale Advisors, to assist management with obtaining votes.
Only stockholders of record as of the record date, October 14, 2021, are entitled to and are being requested to vote. At the time the Special Meeting was adjourned, proxies had been submitted by stockholders representing approximately 40% of the shares of the Company's common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. Proxies previously submitted in respect of the Special Meeting will be voted at the adjourned Special Meeting unless properly revoked, and stockholders who have previously submitted a proxy or otherwise voted need not take any action.
Effective November 23, 2021 the Company's board of directors approved an amendment and restatement of the Company's bylaws (the "Bylaws). The amendment of the Bylaws reduces the quorum requirement for all meetings of stockholders (unless otherwise provided by statute, the Company's amended and restated certificate of incorporation, or regulations of any stock exchange applicable to the Company) from the presence, in person or by proxy, of a majority of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote to the presence, in person or by proxy, of one-third of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote.
The Company encourages all stockholders of record on October 14, 2021, who have not yet voted, to do so by November 30, 2021. Stockholders who have any questions or need assistance in your consideration of the Arrangement or with the completion and delivery of your proxy, please contact Kingsdale Advisors, our proxy solicitor, by calling toll-free at 877-659-1822 or collect at 416-867-2272, or via e-mail at [email protected].
If the number of shares of common stock represented and voting in favor of the proposals at the Special Meeting is not sufficient to adopt and approve such proposals, as applicable, the Company may adjourn the meeting again to solicit additional proxies in respect of such proposals, which will require the Company to incur additional costs.
