Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations
On March 31, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company established that the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”) will be held on June 30, 2021. Because the date of the 2021 Annual Meeting has advanced by more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2020 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 shareholders of such change. The record date, time and location of the 2021 Annual Meeting will be as set forth in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting.
Because the date of the 2021 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the anniversary of the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, a new deadline has been set for submission of proposals by Shareholders intended to be included in the Company’s 2021 proxy statement and form of proxy. Proposals to be included in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, must be received by the Company on or before April 20, 2021, which the Company believes is a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and send its proxy materials. Shareholders must deliver the proposals or nominations to the Company’s principal executive offices at the following address: Oragenics, Inc., Attn: Corporate Secretary, 4902 Eisenhower Boulevard, Suite 125, Tampa, Florida 33634.
In accordance with the requirements of the Exchange Act, the registrant caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized on this 1st day of April, 2021.
