RICHLAND, Wash., Dec. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Isoray, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy powering expanding treatment options throughout the body, today announced that the December 13th, 2022, Annual Meeting is being adjourned until January 12th, 2023, to provide stockholders with additional time to vote on Proposal 1, approval of an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the total number of authorized shares of Common Stock. This vote, which requires approval by a majority of the outstanding shares, is required to proceed with the proposed merger with Viewpoint Molecular Targeting, Inc.
The Board of Directors, as well as leading proxy advisory firms Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) and Glass, Lewis & Co., recommend stockholders vote in support of Proposal 1. Proposal 1 approval is necessary for the consummation of the proposed merger with Viewpoint Molecular Targeting. Proposals 2 and 3 have already been approved and approval of these two proposals was also required to consummate the merger.
Stockholders’ votes are very important and are critical for Isoray to move forward with the pending proposed merger with Viewpoint Molecular Targeting. Management believes that the pending proposed merger represents a transformational opportunity for Isoray and all its stockholders. It provides the Company with the opportunity to combine Isoray’s existing business with a pipeline of very exciting products under development that have the potential to change the paradigm of patient care in the isotope space.
Proposal 1 requires an affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding shares for passage. As of the December 13 meeting date, Proposal 1 had 52,741,902 shares voting in favor with an additional 18,314,481 shares required for approval. Stockholders who do not vote are essentially opposing this proposal and as a result, the proposed merger.
Therefore, the company urges its stockholders who have not yet cast their vote to please do so. This will help save on further solicitation costs and ensure that stockholders’ important votes are represented. Stockholders as of the October 20, 2022 record date can vote, even if they have subsequently sold their shares.
