WOBURN, MA / ACCESSWIRE / March 26, 2024 / Biofrontera, Inc. (NASDAQ:BFRI) (the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the commercialization of dermatological products, today announced that its 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held on June 12, 2024 and that the close of business on April 22, 2024 will be the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the 2024 Annual Meeting. The exact time and location of the 2024 Annual Meeting will be specified in the Company's proxy statement for the 2024 Annual Meeting.

The Company's Proxy Statement for its 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, dated November 17, 2023, and Proxy Statement for its Special Meeting of Stockholders, dated March 21, 2024, stated the deadlines for submission of (a) any stockholder proposals pursuant to SEC Rule 14a-8, and (b) a nominee to serve as director or a proposal to be considered at the meeting under the Company's Amended and Restated By-Laws. However, because the date of the 2024 Annual Meeting is more than 30 days prior to the anniversary date of the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, those deadlines no longer apply.

Accordingly, pursuant to the Amended and Restated By-Laws and SEC Rule 14a-5(f), the Company is hereby providing notice of the revised deadlines for such proposals as follows:

A stockholder intending to submit a proposal to be included in the proxy statement for the 2024 Annual Meeting under SEC Rule 14a-8 must deliver such proposal in writing to our principal executive offices no later than April 19, 2024. Proposals should be addressed to: Corporate Secretary, 120 Presidential Way, Suite 330, Woburn, MA 01801. We suggest that stockholders submit any stockholder proposal by certified mail, return receipt requested. Proposals of stockholders must also comply with the SEC's rules regarding the inclusion of stockholder proposals in proxy materials, and we may omit any proposal from our proxy materials that does not comply with SEC Rule 14a-8.
  2. Submissions under the Amended and Restated By-Laws of proposals intended to be presented at, but not included in the proxy materials for, the 2024 Annual Meeting, including director nominations for election to the Board of Directors, must be addressed to our Corporate Secretary and received at our principal executive offices on or before April 5, 2024. A stockholder's notice to the Corporate Secretary must set forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting the information described in the Company's Amended and Restated By-Laws. A copy of the Company's Amended and Restated By-Laws has been filed as Exhibit 3.3 to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, filed with the SEC on March 15, 2024, or can be obtained by contacting the Company's Corporate Secretary at the address above.

In addition, to comply with the universal proxy rules, stockholders who intend to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than the Board's nominees must provide notice that sets forth the information required by SEC Rule 14a-19.
