Item 5.07 - Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

Our 2020 annual meeting of stockholders was held on December 28, 2020. At the annual meeting our stockholders: (a) elected four directors to serve until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualified; (b) ratified the Board of Directors’ selection of OUM & Co. LLP as our independent registered public accountants to audit our financial statements for the 2020 fiscal year; and (c) approved a proposal to permit Juvenescence Limited (“Juvenescence”) to acquire additional shares of AgeX common stock through the exercise of warrants or the conversion of all or a portion of the principal amount of certain loans to AgeX, if as a result Juvenescence would (i) acquire more than 19.9% of the AgeX common stock outstanding as of March 30, 2020 at a price less than the applicable market value of AgeX common stock or book value per share, and/or (ii) own 50% or more of the outstanding shares of AgeX common stock (the “Juvenescence Proposal”).

 

There were 37,689,003 shares of AgeX common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, outstanding and eligible to vote at the annual meeting as of the close of business on November 23, 2020, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting. There were 29,150,269 shares, or 77.34% of the voting power, represented at the meeting, either in person or by proxy. The following tables show the votes cast by our stockholders and any abstentions with respect to the matters presented to stockholders for a vote at the meeting. Information is also provided as to broker non-votes. A “broker non-vote” occurs when a stockholder whose shares are held in “street name” in a brokerage account or similar account does not instruct the stockholder’s broker or other nominee in whose name the shares are registered how to vote on a matter as to which brokers and nominees are not permitted to vote without instructions from their client.
