MARIETTA, Ga., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MIMEDX Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDXG) (“MIMEDX” or the “Company”), an industry leader in utilizing amniotic tissue as a platform for regenerative medicine, today reminded shareholders to vote at the upcoming 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (“Annual Meeting”), which will be held on May 27, 2021. MIMEDX’s Board of Directors unanimously recommends that shareholders vote FOR all four of its director nominees and FOR all proposals on the Company’s WHITE proxy card. MIMEDX has also confirmed that Prescience Point has voluntarily withdrawn its proxy contest and its proposed director candidates.
MIMEDX has four deeply experienced and highly qualified director nominees standing for election – Dr. M. Kathleen Behrens, Mr. Todd Newton, Mr. Timothy R. Wright, and Dr. Phyllis Gardner. MIMEDX has also put forth several key governance enhancement proposals, including declassifying the Board, reducing the ownership threshold for shareholders to be permitted to call a special meeting and adopting proxy access, all of which are consistent with public company corporate governance best practices.
Leading independent proxy advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) has recommended that shareholders vote FOR all four of MIMEDX’s director nominees and FOR all proposals included on the Company’s WHITE proxy card.
