FREMONT, Calif., June 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of Electronics For Imaging Inc. (EFII) has postponed its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders in light of EFI’s proposed business merger (the “Merger”) with an affiliate of Siris Capital Group, LLC (“Siris”) pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among affiliates of Siris and EFI dated as of April 14, 2019.
The 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders was to have been held on June 6, 2019, but because the EFI Board of Directors anticipates that the transaction will close in the third quarter of 2019, the Board determined that the Annual Meeting should be postponed. A postponed Annual Meeting will be held (and the meeting date, record date and related dates for stockholder proposals announced) later in 2019 if the Merger is not consummated.
