  • Meeting scheduled to reconvene January 13, 2023 at 4:00 PM Eastern Time
  • Company encourages stockholders to cast their votes
  • If you are a beneficial owner, please provide your broker with instructions how to vote your shares on Proposals 1, 2 and 3

CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / December 30, 2022 / Amergent Hospital Inc. (OTCQB:AMHG), today announced that it has adjourned its 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders due to lacking a quorum to convene the meeting.

We identified Proposal Nos. 2 and 3 as “routine” pursuant to NYSE Rule 452. However, Broadridge has determined that Proposal Nos. 2 and 3, along with Proposal No. 1, will be treated as a “non-routine.” If you do not provide voting instructions, pursuant to the rules of the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), your broker may not vote your shares at all for Proposals 1, 2 and 3, which is referred to as a “broker non-vote.” For that reason, if you are a beneficial holder and you wish to vote “for,” “against” or “abstain” from Proposal Nos. 1, 2 or 3, you will have to provide your broker with such an instruction prior to midnight on January 12, 2023. Shares underlying “broker non-votes” will not be counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present at the Annual Meeting since there are no longer routine items on the ballot.

The adjourned meeting will be held at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday, January 13, 2023. The adjourned meeting will also be a “virtual” meeting of stockholders. The record date for the annual meeting is November 18, 2022. A stockholder may use one of the following simple methods to vote:
