Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations.
To the extent applicable, the information in Item 8.01 of this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.08.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
The Board of Directors of iBio, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) has established Monday, February 10, 2020 as the date of the Company’s 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”). Because the date of the 2019 Annual Meeting has been delayed by more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”), in accordance with Rule 14a−5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company is informing stockholders of such change.
Stockholders of record at the close of business on January 13, 2020 will be entitled to vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting. The time and location of the 2019 Annual Meeting will be as set forth in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2019 Annual Meeting. Because the date of the 2019 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the anniversary of the 2018 Annual Meeting, a new deadline has been set for submission of proposals by stockholders of the Company intended to be included in the Company’s 2019 proxy statement and form of proxy for its 2019 Annual Meeting.
Stockholders of the Company who wish to have a proposal considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, must ensure that such proposal is received by the Company’s Secretary, at 600 Madison Avenue, Suite 1601, New York, NY 10022, on or before the close of business on January 15, 2020, which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and send its proxy materials. Any such proposal must also meet the requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting. The January 15, 2020 deadline will also apply in determining whether notice of a shareholder proposal is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies under Rule 14a-4(c) of the Exchange Act.
In addition, in accordance with the requirements contained in the Company’s Bylaws, stockholders of the Company who wish to bring business before the 2019 Annual Meeting outside of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act or to nominate a person for election as a director must ensure that written notice of such proposal (including all of the information specified in the Company’s Bylaws) is received by the Company’s Secretary at the address specified above no later than the close of business on January 15, 2020. Any such proposal must meet the requirements set forth in the Company’s Bylaws in order to be brought before the 2019 Annual Meeting.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
