The stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting voted to approve the proposal to adjourn the Annual Meeting (Proposal 4) for the purpose of continuing to solicit votes in favor of Proposal 3 contained in the Company’s Proxy Statement.
At the Annual Meeting, there were insufficient votes to approve Proposal 3, to approve an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a reverse stock split at a ratio not less than 1-for-5 and not greater than 1-for-20, with the exact ratio to be set within that range at the discretion of our board of directors before the day prior to the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders without further approval or authorization of our stockholders. In accordance with Proposal 4, the Annual Meeting was adjourned to December 23, 2020, at 1:00 PM Pacific Time. The adjourned meeting will be held at the Company’s offices at 400 Chesapeake Drive, Redwood City, California 94063. A quorum was present for the authorization of the meeting of December 10, 2020, as there were present, in person or by proxy, a majority of all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.
At the adjourned Annual Meeting on December 23, 2020, stockholders will be deemed to be present in person and vote at such adjourned meeting in the same manner as disclosed in the definitive proxy statement the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 26, 2020.
