QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

 

The following questions and answers briefly address some commonly asked questions about the proposals to be presented at the Annual Meeting. The following questions and answers do not include all the information that is important to our stockholders. We urge stockholders to read carefully this entire proxy statement, including the annexes and the other documents referred to herein.

 

Q: Why did I receive this proxy statement?

 

A: This proxy statement is being provided to you in connection with our Board’s solicitation of proxies for use at the Annual Meeting. As a holder of our common stock as of the close of business on September 24, 2019 (the “Record Date”), you are invited to attend the Annual Meeting and to vote in person or by proxy on the proposals described in this proxy statement.

 

Q: What is being voted on at the Annual Meeting?

 

A: Our Board is soliciting your vote for the following proposals to be voted on at the Annual Meeting:

 

  The Director Election Proposal - To consider and vote upon a proposal to elect five directors to serve as members of our Board for one-year terms;
     
  The Say-On-Pay Proposal - To approve, on an advisory basis, a non-binding resolution approving the compensation of our named executive officers; and
     
  The Auditor Ratification Proposal - To ratify the appointment of WWC, P.C. as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.

 

Q: Who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting?

 

A: Holders of common stock as of the Record Date will be entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting or any reconvened meeting following any adjournment or postponement of the Annual Meeting.

 

Q: Do I have dissenters’ rights of appraisal?

 

A: The Nevada Revised Statutes do not provide dissenters’ rights of appraisal to the Company’s stockholders in connection with any of the proposals herein.

 

Q: How many votes do I have?

 

A: On the Record Date, there were 7,877,765 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. Each stockholder is entitled to one vote for each outstanding share of common stock held as of the Record Date.

 

Q: What is the difference between holding shares of common stock as a holder of record and as a beneficial owner?

 

A: If your shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Empire Stock Transfer, Inc., you are considered, with respect to those shares, the “stockholder of record.” If you are a stockholder of record, the Company sent this proxy statement and a proxy card directly to you.

 

If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account or by a bank or other nominee, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of shares held in “street name.” If you hold shares in street name, this proxy statement has been forwarded to you by your bank, broker or other nominee who is considered, with respect to those shares, the stockholder of record. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your bank, broker or other nominee how to vote your shares by using the voting instruction card included in the mailing or by following their instructions for voting by telephone, fax, or over the Internet, if they offer that alternative. As a beneficial owner is not a stockholder of record, you may not vote these shares in person at the Annual Meeting unless you obtain a “legal proxy” from the bank, broker or other nominee that holds your shares, giving you the right to vote the shares at the Annual Meeting.

Q: What is the quorum required for the Annual Meeting?

 

A: Holders of a majority in voting power of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, constitute a quorum. In the absence of a quorum, a majority of our stockholders, present in person or represented by proxy, will have the power to adjourn the Annual Meeting. As of the Record Date, 3,938,884 shares of our common stock would be required to achieve a quorum.

 

Q: How do I vote?

 

A: You may vote using any of the following methods:

 

  Proxy card or voting instruction card. Be sure to complete, sign and date the card and return it in the prepaid envelope.
     
  By telephone, fax, or over the Internet. This is allowed if you hold shares in street name and your bank, broker or other nominee offers those alternatives. Although most banks, brokers and other nominees offer these voting alternatives, availability and specific procedures vary.
     
  In person at the Annual Meeting. All stockholders may vote in person at the Annual Meeting. You may also be represented by another person at the Annual Meeting by executing a proper proxy designating that person. If you hold shares in street name, you must obtain a legal proxy from your bank, broker or other nominee and present it to the inspector of election with your ballot when you vote at the Annual Meeting.

 

Q: Can I change my vote after I have voted?

 

A: You may revoke your proxy and change your vote at any time before the final vote at the Annual Meeting. You may vote again on a later date by signing and returning a new proxy card or voting instruction form with a later date, or by attending the Annual Meeting and voting in person. Mere attendance at the Annual Meeting will not automatically revoke your proxy unless you vote in person at the Annual Meeting or specifically request in writing that your prior proxy be revoked.

 

Q: What happens if I do not give specific voting instructions?

 

A: If you do not vote your shares held of record (registered directly in your name, not in the name of a bank or broker), your shares will not be voted.

 

If you do not vote your shares held beneficially in street name with a broker, your broker will not be authorized to vote on non-routine matters. The Director Election Proposal and the Say-On-Pay Proposal are considered non-routine matters, and therefore brokers cannot exercise discretionary authority regarding these proposals for beneficial owners who have not returned proxies to the brokers (so-called “broker non-votes”). The Auditor Ratification Proposal is considered a routine matter, and therefore brokers can exercise discretionary authority regarding this proposal for beneficial owners who have not returned proxies to the brokers. If your broker is not able to vote your shares, they will constitute “broker non-votes,” which are counted for the purposes of determining the presence of a quorum, but otherwise do not affect the outcome of the foregoing matters being voted on at the Annual Meeting.

 

2

 

 

Q: What vote is required to approve each proposal?

 

A: The proposal to elect five directors to serve as members of our Board for one year terms requires the affirmative vote of a plurality of the votes cast by shares represented in person or proxy and entitled to vote for the election of directors. This means that the five nominees receiving the most votes will be elected. You may vote “FOR” all of the nominees or your vote may be “WITHHELD” with respect to one or more of the nominees. Votes withheld as to this proposal will not affect the election of the candidates that receive the plurality of the vote.

 

The advisory vote to approve the compensation of named executive officers requires the affirmative “FOR” votes of a majority of the votes cast on this proposal. The approval of the advisory vote to approve the compensation of named executive officers is a non-binding advisory votes.

 

The proposal for the ratification of the appointment of WWC, P.C. as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019 requires the affirmative “FOR” votes of a majority of the votes cast on this proposal.

 

Q: How are abstentions and broker non-votes treated?

 

A: For the purpose of determining whether our stockholders have approved a proposal, with respect to the Director Election Proposal, the Say-On-Pay Proposal and the Auditor Ratification Proposal, abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of these proposals.

 

Q: Is my vote confidential?

 

A: We will handle proxy instructions, ballots and voting tabulations that identify individual stockholders in a manner that protects your voting privacy. Your vote will not be disclosed within or outside our Company, except:

 

  as necessary to meet applicable legal requirements;
     
  to allow for the tabulation and certification of votes; and
     
  to facilitate a successful proxy solicitation.

 

Occasionally, stockholders provide written comments on their proxy cards. These may be forwarded to management or our Board.

 

Q: Where can I find the voting results of the Annual Meeting?

 

A: The preliminary voting results may be announced at the Annual Meeting. The final voting results will be tallied by the inspector of election for the Annual Meeting and announced in a Current Report on Form 8-K as soon as practicable after the inspector of election tallies the final voting results.

 

Q: Who is paying the cost of this proxy solicitation?

 

A: We are paying the cost of soliciting proxies. We may retain a proxy solicitation firm to assist us in soliciting proxies for a nominal fee plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. We must pay brokerage firms and other persons representing beneficial owners of shares of common stock their reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners who specifically request them and obtaining voting instructions from those beneficial owners.

 

In addition to soliciting proxies by mail, members of our Board and our officers and employees may solicit proxies on our behalf, without additional compensation, personally or by telephone. We may also solicit proxies by email from stockholders who are our employees or who have previously requested electronic receipt of proxy materials.

Our Board currently consists of one class of five directors, with all directors elected to serve a one-year term.

 

At the Annual Meeting, stockholders are being asked to elect five directors, including five directors standing for re-election, to serve as members of our Board for one-year terms.

 

Messrs. Bin Zhou, Hongxiang Yu, Chao Chen, King Fai Leung and Guangming Fang are currently directors of the Company who are standing for re-election at the Annual Meeting and Bin Zhou will replace Hongxiang Yu as the Chairman of the Board after the Annual Meeting.

 

In addition, immediately after the Annual Meeting, Bin Zhou will replace Hongxiang Yu as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Mr. Yu has served as the head of the internal auditing department of Hongrun Construction Group Co., Ltd., a company listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and as general manager for Hongrun's foundation engineering subsidiary, since August 2006.

King Fai Leung has served as a director of the Company since July 2019. He has over 20 years’ experience in finance and accounting. He has been the executive director of Maxima Energy Limited, an energy company in Hong Kong, since December 2018.

He served as chief executive officer of Beijing Zhongqiao Culture Development Company from 1999 to August 2014, Mr. Fang received his bachelor of accounting degree from Payap University of Thailand in 1986. We believe Mr. Fang is well qualified to serve on the Board because of his extensive management experience in the food industry.

 

There are no arrangements or understandings between any of our directors and any other person pursuant to which any director was selected to serve as a director of our company. Directors are elected until their successors are duly elected and qualified. There are no family relationships among any of the directors or the executive officers of the Company.

 

Director Qualifications and Diversity

 

We seek directors with established strong professional reputations and experience in areas relevant to the strategy and operations of our businesses. We seek directors who possess the qualities of integrity and candor, who have strong analytical skills and who are willing to engage management and each other in a constructive and collaborative fashion. We also seek directors who have the ability and commitment to devote significant time and energy to service on the Board and its committees. We believe that all of our directors meet the foregoing qualifications. We do not have a policy with respect to diversity.

 

Transactions with Related Persons, Promoters and Certain Control Persons

 

Certain “related party” transactions involving related persons (excluding executive officer compensation which is determined by the compensation committee) are presented to, reviewed and approved by the audit committee. Related persons include the Company’s directors and executive officers, immediate family members of the directors and executive officers, and security holders who beneficially own five percent or more of our common stock and their respective family members. The transactions subject to such review are those transactions in which the Company was or is to be a participant and the amount involved equals or exceeds $120,000. If the related party involved in a related party transaction is a director of the Company that would normally review such a transaction or a family member of such a director, then that director will not participate in the relevant discussion and review.

 

Information considered in evaluating such transactions may include: the nature of the related person’s interest in the transaction; the material terms of the transaction; whether the terms of the transaction are fair to the Company and on the same basis as would apply if the transaction did not involve a related party; whether there are business reasons for the Company to enter into the transaction; whether the transaction would impair the independence of an outside director; and whether the transaction would present an improper conflict of interests for any director or executive officer of the Company, taking into account the size of the transaction, the overall financial position of the director, executive officer or related party, the direct or indirect nature of the director’s, executive officer’s or related party’s interest in the transaction and the ongoing nature of any proposed relationship; and any other factors the audit committee deems relevant.

Review, Approval or Ratification of Transactions with Related Persons

 

Our Board appointed an audit committee consisting of independent directors. This committee, among other duties, is charged to review, and if appropriate, ratify all agreements and transactions which had been entered into with related parties, as well as review and ratify all future related party transactions.

 

Vote Required

 

If a quorum is present, directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast, in person or by proxy. This means that the five nominees will be elected if they receive more affirmative votes than any other nominee for the same position. Votes marked “FOR” a nominee will be counted in favor of that nominee. Proxies will have full discretion to cast votes for other persons in the event any nominee is unable to serve. Failure to vote by proxy or to vote in person at the Annual Meeting and broker non-votes will have no effect on the vote since a plurality of the votes cast is required for the election of each nominee.

 

Recommendation of the Board

 

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE ELECTION OF EACH OF THE FIVE NOMINEES TO THE BOARD.

THE SAY-ON-PAY PROPOSAL

 

The recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”) added Section 14A to Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which enables our stockholders to vote to approve, on an advisory, non-binding basis, the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in this proxy statement in accordance with the SEC’s rules.

 

Our named executive officer compensation program is designed to attract, motivate and retain our named executive officers, who are critical to our success. The Compensation Committee believes an effective compensation program is one that is designed to align the interests of executive officers with those of our stockholders by tying long-term incentive compensation to financial performance and ultimately to the creation of stockholder value. The Compensation Committee believes that it has taken a responsible approach to compensating our named executive officers.

 

Please read the “Executive Compensation” section of this proxy statement for additional details about our executive compensation program.

 

We are asking our stockholders to indicate their support for our named executive officer compensation as described in this proxy statement. This proposal, commonly known as a “say-on-pay” proposal, gives our stockholders the opportunity to express their views on the compensation of our named executive officers. This vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather the overall compensation of our named executive officers and the philosophy, policies and practices described in this proxy statement. Accordingly, we will ask our stockholders to vote “FOR” the following resolution at the Annual Meeting:

 

“RESOLVED, that the Company’s stockholders approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of the named executive officers, as disclosed in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders pursuant to the compensation disclosure rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.”

 

The say-on-pay vote is advisory, and therefore not binding on the Company, the Compensation Committee or our Board. Our Board and our Compensation Committee value the views of our stockholders and will consider the outcome of the vote when determining future compensation arrangements for our named executive officers.

 

Vote Required

 

This vote is an advisory vote and is therefore not binding on the Company or the Board. The affirmative vote of a majority of all votes cast at the Annual Meeting is required for advisory approval of this proposal. If stockholders do not specify the manner in which their shares represented by a validly executed proxy solicited by the Board are to be voted on this proposal, such shares will be voted in favor of this proposal. Brokers are not authorized to vote without instructions on this proposal. Abstentions will have the same effect as voting against the proposal and broker non-votes will not be deemed votes cast and will have no effect on the vote outcome.

 

Recommendation of the Board of Directors

 

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” THE APPROVAL OF THE COMPENSATION OF OUR NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, AS DISCLOSED IN THIS PROXY STATEMENT PURSUANT TO THE COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE RULES OF THE SEC.

THE AUDITOR RATIFICATION PROPOSAL

 

The Audit Committee of our Board is responsible for the selection of our independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has determined to appoint the public accounting firm of WWC, P.C., Certified Public Accountants, as independent registered public accounting firm to audit our financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019. Although our Audit Committee is directly responsible for selecting and retaining our independent auditor and even though ratification is not required by our bylaws, the Board is submitting the selection of WWC, P.C. to our stockholders for ratification as a matter of good corporate practice and we are asking our stockholders to approve the appointment of WWC, P.C. In the event our stockholders fail to ratify the appointment, the Audit Committee may reconsider this appointment.

 

The Company has been advised by WWC, P.C. that neither the firm nor any of its associates had any relationship with the Company other than the usual relationship that exists between independent registered public accountant firms and their clients during the last fiscal year. A representative of WWC, P.C., is expected to be present in person or by electronic conferencing at the Annual Meeting, and will be afforded an opportunity to make a statement at the Annual Meeting if the representative desires to do so. It is also expected that such representative will be available at the Annual Meeting to respond to appropriate questions by stockholders.

 

Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm’s Fees

 

The following table sets forth the aggregate fees billed by WWC, P.C. for audit and non-audit services rendered to us in 2018 and 2017. These fees are categorized as audit fees, audit-related fees, tax fees, and all other fees. The nature of the services provided in each category is described following the table.

    2018     2017  
             
Audit Fees   $ 190,000     $ 170,000  
Audit-Related Fees     7,440       4,950  
Tax Fees     -       -

Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Board Meetings

 

During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, the Board held 10 meetings. Each of the current members of the Board attended at least 75% of the meetings held by the Board and any committee of the Board on which he or she was a part of during the time such director served as a member of the Board. We have no written policy regarding director attendance at annual meetings of stockholders.

 

Director Independence

 

The Board evaluates the independence of each nominee for election as a director in accordance with the NYSE American Company Guide Rules (the “NYSE American Company Guide Rules”). Pursuant to these rules, a majority of our Board must be “independent directors” within the meaning of the NYSE American Company Guide Rules, and all directors who sit on our Audit Committee and Compensation Committee must also be independent directors.

 

The NYSE American definition of “independence” includes a series of objective tests, such as the director or director nominee is not, and was not during the last three years, our employee and has not received certain payments from, or engaged in various types of business dealings with, us. In addition, as further required by the NYSE American Company Guide Rules, the Board has made a subjective determination as to each independent director that no relationships exist which, in the opinion of the Board, would interfere with such individual’s exercise of independent judgment in carrying out his or her responsibilities as a director. In making these determinations, the Board reviewed and discussed information provided by the directors with regard to each director’s business and personal activities as they may relate to us and our management.

 

As a result, the Board has affirmatively determined that other than Hongxiang Yu and Bin Zhou, none of our directors or director nominees has, or will have, a material relationship with the Company. The Board has also affirmatively determined that all members of our Audit Committee and Compensation Committee are independent directors.

 

Audit Committee and Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

The Audit Committee assists our board in monitoring:

 

   - our accounting, auditing, and financial reporting processes;
     
   - the integrity of our financial statements;

The Audit Committee has adopted a written charter, a copy of which is available on our website on the Corporate Governance page under the Investor link at www.planetgreenholdings.com, and a printed copy of which is available to any stockholder requesting a copy by writing to: Planet Green Holdings Corp., c/o Board of Director Office, Suite 200, 9841 Washingtonian Blvd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, our Audit Committee held 5 meetings.

 

12

 

 

Compensation Committee

 

The functions of the Compensation Committee are as follows:

 

to assist our board in discharging its responsibilities with respect to compensation of our executive officers and directors;

 

to evaluate the performance of our executive officers;

 

to assist our board in developing succession plans for executive officers; and

 

to administer our stock and incentive compensation plans and recommend changes in such plans to our board as needed.

 

The current members of the Compensation Committee are Chao Chen, King Fai Leung and Guangming Fang. Ms. Chen is the chairman of the Compensation Committee. Following the Annual Meeting, if the stockholders vote in favor of the Board’s recommendation, Chao Chen, King Fai Leung and Guangming Fang will serve as members of the Compensation Committee. Ms. Chen will serve as the chairman of the Compensation Committee.

 

All current members of the Compensation Committee are independent directors, and all past members were independent directors at all times during their service on such Committee. None of the past or present members of our Compensation Committee are present or past employees or officers of the Company or any of our subsidiaries. No member of the Compensation Committee has had any relationship with us requiring disclosure under Item 404 of Regulation S-K. None of our executive officers serves on the board of directors or compensation committee of a company that has an executive officer that serves on our Board or Compensation Committee.

 

The Compensation Committee may not delegate its responsibilities to another committee, individual director or member of management.

 

The Compensation Committee meets on an annual basis and holds special meetings as needed. The Compensation Committee meetings may be called by the Committee chairman, the Chairman of the Board of Directors or a majority of committee members. The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer also provide recommendations to the Compensation Committee relating to compensation of other executive officers. The Compensation Committee held 5 meetings in fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee

 

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee assists the Board in identifying individuals qualified to become our directors and in determining the composition of the Board and its committees. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for, among other things:

 

to make recommendations to the Board with respect to the size and composition of the Board;

 

to make recommendations to the Board of Directors on the minimum qualifications and standards for director nominees and the selection criteria for the Board members;

 

to review the qualifications of potential candidates for the Board;

 

to make recommendations to the Board on nominees to be elected at the Annual Meeting of stockholders; and
     
to seek and identify a qualified director nominee, in the event that a director vacancy occurs, to be recommended to the Board for either appointment by the Board to serve the remainder of the term of a director position that is vacant or election at the Annual Meeting of the stockholders.

The current members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are Guangming Fang, Chao Chen and King Fai Leung. Mr. Guangming Fang is the chairman of the Compensation Committee.

Mr. Guangming Fang will serve as the chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

 

During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee held 4 meetings.

 

Board Leadership Structure

 

Following the Annual Meeting, the Board has chosen to separate the principal executive officer and chairman positions, where Mr. Hongxiang Yu will continue to serve as the Chief Executive Officer, President and director while Mr. Bin Zhou will serve as the chairman, because it believes that (i) independent oversight of management is an important component of an effective board of directors and (ii) this structure benefits the interests of all stockholders. If the Board convenes for an Annual Meeting, the non-management directors will meet in executive session if circumstances warrant. Given the composition of the Board with a strong slate of independent directors, the Board of Directors does not believe that it is necessary to formally designate a lead independent director at this time, although it may consider appointing a lead independent director if circumstances change. We believe that the structure described above is the best structure to lead us in the achievement of our goals and objectives and establishes an effective balance between management leadership and appropriate oversight by independent directors.

 

Board Role in Risk Oversight

 

Senior management is responsible for assessing and managing our various exposures to risk on a day-today basis, including the creation of appropriate risk management programs and policies. The Board is responsible for overseeing management in the execution of its responsibilities and for assessing our approach to risk management. In addition, an overall review of risk is inherent in the Board’s consideration of our long-term strategies and in the transactions and other matters presented to the Board, including capital expenditures, acquisitions and divestitures, and financial matters.

 

Code of Ethics

 

Our Board adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to all of our directors, executive officers, including our principal executive officer, principal financial officer and principal accounting officer, and employees. The Code of Ethics addresses, among other things, honesty and ethical conduct, conflicts of interest, compliance with laws, regulations and policies, including disclosure requirements under the federal securities laws, confidentiality, trading on inside information, and reporting of violations of the code. The Code of Ethics is available on the Corporate Governance page of our website under the Investor link at www.planetgreenholdings.com, and a copy of the Code of Ethics is available to any stockholder requesting a copy by writing to: Planet Green Holdings Corp., c/o Board of Director Office, Suite 200, 9841 Washingtonian Blvd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. We intend to disclose on our website, in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, amendments to, or waivers from, our Code of Ethics.

REPORT OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE

 

The members of the Audit Committee have been appointed by the Board. The Audit Committee consists solely of independent directors, as defined by NYSE American Company Guide. The Audit Committee operates under a written charter to assure continued compliance with SEC and NYSE American Company Guide enacted in response to requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

 

The Audit Committee assists the Board in monitoring the integrity of our financial statements, the independent registered public accounting firm’s qualifications and independence, the performance of the independent registered public accounting firm, and our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Management is responsible for our internal controls and the financial reporting process. The independent registered public accounting firm is responsible for performing an independent audit of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and for issuing a report on those financial statements. The Audit Committee monitors and oversees these processes.

 

In this context, the Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 with management and with WWC, P.C., our independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has discussed with WWC, P.C. the matters required to be discussed by Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, as amended (Communications with Audit Committees) as adopted by The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T, which includes, among other items, matters related to the conduct of the audit of the Company’s annual financial statements.

 

The Audit Committee has also received the written disclosures and the letter from WWC, P.C. required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent registered public accountant’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence and has discussed with WWC, P.C. the issue of their independence from our company and management. In addition, the Audit Committee has considered whether the provision of non-audit services by the independent registered public accounting firm in 2018 is compatible with maintaining the auditors’ independence and has concluded that it is.

 

Based on its review of the audited financial statements and the various discussions noted above, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. The Audit Committee has also recommended, subject to stockholder ratification, the selection of our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

Respectfully submitted by the Audit Committee,

 

King Fai Leung, Chairman
Chao Chen
Guangming Fang

 

The information contained in this Audit Committee Report shall not be deemed to be “soliciting material” or to be “filed” with the SEC, nor shall such information be incorporated by reference into any filings under the Securities Act or under the Exchange Act, except to the extent that we specifically incorporate this information by reference into any such filing.

STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS

 

We anticipate that the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders will be held on or about October 25, 2020. For any proposal to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement and form of proxy for submission to the stockholders at our 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, it must be submitted in writing and comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act. Such proposals must be received before May 29, 2020 by the Company at its offices at Suite 200, 9841 Washingtonian Blvd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878.

 

PROXY SOLICITATION

 

The solicitation of proxies is made on behalf of the Board and we will bear the cost of soliciting proxies. The transfer agent and registrar for our common stock, Empire Stock Transfer, Inc., as a part of its regular services and for no additional compensation other than reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses, has been engaged to assist in the proxy solicitation. Proxies may be solicited through the mail and through telephonic communications to, or by meetings with, stockholders or their representatives by our directors, officers and other employees who will receive no additional compensation therefor. We may also retain a proxy solicitation firm to assist us in obtaining proxies by mail, facsimile or email from record and beneficial holders of shares for the Annual Meeting. If we retain a proxy solicitation firm, we expect to pay such firm reasonable and customary compensation for its services, including out-of-pocket expenses.

 

We request persons such as brokers, nominees and fiduciaries holding our common stock in their names for others, or holding stock for others who have the right to give voting instructions, to forward proxy materials to their principals and to request authority for the execution of the proxy. We will reimburse such persons for their reasonable expenses.

 

DELIVERY OF PROXY MATERIALS TO HOUSEHOLDS

 

Only one copy of this proxy statement is being delivered to multiple registered stockholders who share an address unless we have received contrary instructions from one or more of the stockholders. A separate form of proxy and a separate notice of the Annual Meeting are being included for each account at the shared address. Registered stockholders who share an address and would like to receive a separate copy of this proxy statement, or have questions regarding the householding process, may contact the Company’s transfer agent: Empire Stock Transfer, Inc., by calling (702) 818-5898, or by forwarding a written request addressed to Empire Stock Transfer, Inc., 1859 Whitney Mesa Dr, Henderson, NV 89014. Promptly upon request, a separate copy of this proxy statement will be sent. By contacting Empire Stock Transfer, Inc., registered stockholders sharing an address can also (i) notify the Company that the registered stockholders wish to receive separate proxy statements and/or Notices of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, as applicable, in the future or (ii) request delivery of a single copy of annual reports to stockholders, proxy statements and/or Notices of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, as applicable, in the future if registered stockholders at the shared address are receiving multiple copies.

 

Many brokers, brokerage firms, broker/dealers, banks and other holders of record have also instituted “householding” (delivery of one copy of materials to multiple stockholders who share an address). If your family has one or more “street name” accounts under which you beneficially own shares of our common stock, you may have received householding information from your broker, brokerage firm, broker/dealer, bank or other nominee in the past. Please contact the holder of record directly if you have questions, require additional copies of this proxy statement or wish to revoke your decision to household and thereby receive multiple copies. You should also contact the holder of record if you wish to institute householding.
