ALLEN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
PFSweb, Inc. (PFSW), an international provider of end-to-end eCommerce solutions, today announced that its 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders has been adjourned without conducting any business and will be reconvened on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at 10:00 am Central Time at the Hilton Garden Inn in Allen, Texas. The record date for stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting remains May 24, 2013.
The Company’s Board of Directors decided to adjourn the annual meeting in order to provide the Company with additional time to solicit additional votes to approve the proposals to declassify the Board and adopt majority voting for the uncontested election of directors.
Voting remains open by telephone, the Internet or mail prior to the annual meeting to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 24, 2013. Shareholders who have already voted need not submit another vote unless they wish to change their votes. See the information in the Company's proxy statement regarding voting procedures.
“Although the Company has received positive feedback from its major shareholders in support of the proposals to declassify the Board and adopt majority voting for the uncontested election of directors, we have not yet achieved the required number of votes to approve such proposals. As a result, PFSweb is adjourning the annual meeting in order to reach out to smaller shareholders who have not yet voted,” stated Mike Willoughby, CEO of PFSweb. “These proposals have received the support of ISS, a leading independent proxy and corporate governance advisory firm, and are part of an ongoing effort by the Company’s Board to align PFSweb with best practices in corporate governance. We urge all shareholders to vote their proxies as soon as possible.”
Each of these proposals, which require the affirmative vote of 75% of the outstanding shares, is described in detail in the Company's definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting as filed with the SEC and available from the Company and on its website.
Stockholders who have already voted need not take any action on these proposals, although they may change their vote at any time prior to the reconvened Annual Meeting by executing a new proxy, revoking a previously given proxy as set forth in PFSweb’s proxy statement, or by calling 800-652-8683.
This communication may be deemed to be solicitation material and investors and security holders of the Company are advised to read the proxy statement and any other relevant documents filed with the SEC because they contain important information about the proposals and the Annual Meeting. Investors and stockholders may obtain free copies of the proxy statement and other documents filed by the Company free of charge at the SEC's Web site at www.sec.gov or in the Investor Relations section of the Company's Web site at www.pfsweb.com. The proxy statement and such other documents may also be obtained for free from the Company by directing such request to PFSweb, Inc., Attn: Secretary, Telephone (972) 881-2900.
