-    Company urgently encourages stockholders to vote    -

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (June 14, 2019) – InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: NVIV) today announced that its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, scheduled for June 11, 2019, was convened and adjourned without any business being conducted due to the fact that quorum was not achieved. The Annual Meeting will be reconvened July 2, 2019 to allow more opportunity for stockholders to vote on all proposals described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on April 25, 2019.

It has come to the Company’s attention that certain stockholders may have been unable to vote their shares through their broker or financial institutions, particularly if such shares are held through European institutions.  The Company encourages any stockholder that has not received communications from their brokers or banks or is uncertain if its shares have been voted to contact the Company’s proxy specialists at the number listed below in order to help facilitate the voting of shares.

The Company also reminds holders to inquire with their voting institutions about any additional clearing time that may be required to forward voting instructions to the Company in advance of the July 1, 2019 deadline. The record date for the Annual Meeting remains April 22, 2019. Company stockholders as of the record date can vote, even if they have subsequently sold their shares. Stockholders who have previously submitted their proxy or otherwise voted and who do not want to change their vote need not take any action.

For questions relating to the voting of shares or to request additional or misplaced proxy voting materials,  the Company’s proxy specialists may be reached at 1-888-742-1305 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday.
