The board of directors of EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the Company) has established Tuesday, June 25, 2019 as the date of the Companys 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the 2019 Annual Meeting). Because the date of the 2019 Annual Meeting has been advanced by more than 30 days from the anniversary of the date of the Companys last annual meeting of stockholders, 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 April 26, 2019 will be entitled to vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting. The 2019 Annual Meeting will be held at the Companys Corporate Headquarters, 480 Pleasant Street, Watertown, Massachusetts 02472 at 9:00 a.m., local time. Because the date of the 2019 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the anniversary of the date of the last annual meeting of stockholders, new deadlines have been set for submission of proposals by stockholders intended to be presented at the 2019 Annual Meeting and included in the Companys proxy statement for the 2019 Annual Meeting.
In accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, if a stockholder wishes to present a proposal for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting, the Companys Corporate Secretary must receive written notice of such proposal at the Companys executive offices no later than the close of business on March 27, 2019, 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 (i) 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 and (ii) contain the information specified in, and otherwise comply with, the Companys bylaws.
Pursuant to the advance notice procedures set forth in the Companys bylaws, stockholders who wish to bring business before the 2019 Annual Meeting outside of Rule 14a-8 or to nominate a person for election as a director (collectively, a Proposal) must ensure that written notice of a Proposal is timely submitted to the Company. Pursuant to the Companys bylaws, in order for a Proposal to be properly submitted for presentation at the 2019 Annual Meeting, the Companys Corporate Secretary must receive written notice of such Proposal at the Companys executive offices prior to the close of business on March 27, 2019. All Proposals must contain the information specified in, and otherwise comply with, the Companys bylaws. Proposals must be delivered, by personal delivery or United States mail, postage prepaid, to: Corporate Secretary, EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 480 Pleasant Street, Watertown, Massachusetts 02472.
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.
