SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CollabRx, Inc. ("CollabRx") (NASDAQ:CLRX) announced today that the special meeting of its stockholders scheduled for Wednesday, October 28, 2015 to consider and act on several proposals recommended by CollabRx's board and management regarding its proposed merger with Medytox Solutions, Inc. ("Medytox") (OTCQB:MMMS) has been adjourned to Friday, October 30, 2015 at 10:30 am Pacific Time, and will take place at CollabRx's offices located at 44 Montgomery Street, Suite 800, San Francisco, CA 94104-4811.
The adjournment period will allow for the continued solicitation of proxies from CollabRx's stockholders with respect to Proposal 2 (reverse stock split) and Proposal 3 (increase in authorized common stock). As of October 28, 2015, an aggregate of 5,259,155 shares have been voted, which constitutes a quorum required to conduct business at the special meeting. Had the meeting today not been adjourned, based on the shares submitted as of October 28, 2015, Proposal 1 (issuance of shares in connection with the merger), Proposal 4 (amendment to stock plan), Proposal 5 (advisory vote) and Proposal 6 (adjournment of meeting) would have had sufficient votes to be approved at the special meeting. With regard to Proposal 2, there are currently 4,602,521 votes (representing 87.5% of the votes cast) "FOR" the proposal and 576,592 votes (representing 11.0% of the votes cast) "AGAINST" the proposal. With regard to Proposal 3, there currently 4,484,425 votes (representing 85.3% of the votes cast) "FOR" the proposal and 560,578 votes (representing 10.7% of the votes cast) "AGAINST" the proposal. The affirmative vote of at least 5,243,687 shares, representing a majority of CollabRx shares outstanding as of the close of business on the record date, is required to approve Proposal 2 and Proposal 3. It is a condition to the merger that Proposal 2 and Proposal 3 be approved. Unless Proposal 2 is approved, CollabRx's board and management believe that CollabRx will not be able to maintain the listing of its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
Stockholders who have already voted do not need to recast their votes. Proxies previously submitted will be voted at the reconvened meeting unless properly revoked. Stockholders who have not already voted or wish to change their vote are encouraged to do so using the instructions provided in their voting instruction form or proxy card.
