Stockholders Are Urged To Vote
REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature laser display technology, today announced that although more than 95 percent of the votes cast have voted FOR approval of the registered direct offering of common stock and warrants to purchase common stock at the Special Meeting of the Company’s Stockholders scheduled for today, the meeting will be adjourned due to the expected lack of a quorum. A majority of the Company’s outstanding common stock must be present at the Special Meeting, either in person or by proxy, to establish a quorum, but only approximately 26 percent of the outstanding shares have been voted to date.
The Special Meeting of the Company’s Stockholders will be adjourned to Friday, September 13, 2013 at 11:00 a.m., Pacific Time, and will be held at The Redmond Inn, 17601 Redmond Way, Redmond, WA 98052. The meeting is being adjourned to provide the Company with additional time to solicit proxies from its stockholders to establish a quorum for the conduct of business at the Special Meeting of Stockholders.
The Company’s proxy materials, including its Notice of the Special Meeting, which were previously filed and mailed to the Company’s stockholders on or about July 10, 2013, as well as the agenda for the meeting set out therein, remain unchanged. The record date for the stockholders entitled to vote at the special meeting remains the close of business on June 27, 2013.
Stockholders who have not voted as of yet are encouraged to submit their votes. Information related to the vote can be found on the Investor page of MicroVision’s website.
