Atomera Announces New Date for Annual Meeting of Stockholders and Change to Virtual-Only Format
LOS GATOS, Calif., May 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atomera Incorporated (Nasdaq: ATOM) announced today the rescheduling of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
On April 1, 2020, Atomera filed with the SEC proxy materials for an Annual Meeting originally scheduled for May 7, 2020 and on April 27, 2020 announced the rescheduling of the Annual Meeting to May 26, 2020 due to the COVID-19 related restrictions set out in the California Proclamation of a State of Emergency and the Order of the Health Officer of the County of Santa Clara. Due to the continuing COVID-19 related restrictions on meetings and the conduct of non-essential business, Atomera has further rescheduled the Annual Meeting to July 30, 2020 and has changed to a virtual meeting format. As a result of this rescheduling, Atomera’s Board of Directors has set a new record date as required under Delaware law.
“The extension of COVID-19-related restrictions, which we currently anticipate will remain in place until at least May 31, leave us with no choice but to reschedule our Annual Meeting a second time. Our Board assessed all available options to hold the meeting as close to the original date as possible, but balancing local restrictions due to the pandemic and the timing requirements under Delaware law and SEC rules dictate that July 30 is the earliest practicable date we can hold the meeting,” said Scott Bibaud, President and CEO. “We look forward to our stockholders’ participation at the meeting in the virtual format.”
Atomera will be refiling with the SEC and distributing to stockholders of record revised proxy materials containing information about the rescheduled meeting, including instructions for attending the meeting and voting in the virtual format.
