KEY QUESTIONS OUR SHAREHOLDERS ARE ASKING

 

Question

Answer

What will happen to Acorda Therapeutics if Proposal One does not pass?

 

Your vote “FOR Proposal One at the Adjourned Special Meeting of Stockholders on August 28th is critically important. Without your support for this proposal, our company could be forced into bankruptcy. In a Chapter 11 reorganization, the value of your shares could be severely impaired – or your shares could be cancelled. It is in your best interest to vote “FOR” Proposal One today.

 

Didn’t Proposal One already receive approximately 80% of the votes at the July 31st Special Meeting? Why is my vote so important?

 

Approval of Proposal One requires support by at least a majority of all outstanding shares. So, while Acorda stockholders have been highly supportive of Proposal One to date, we did not receive enough votes to meet that high standard. That is why your vote matters, no matter how many or how few shares you own.

 

What happens if I don’t vote?

If you don’t vote, it will count the same as a vote AGAINST Proposal One, and if Proposal One does not pass, our company could be forced into bankruptcy.

 

Why do you keep contacting me?

 

We are concerned. Based on our current records, we believe you have not yet voted. Your vote could impact the value of your investment and we are making an intensive outreach to make sure shareholders understand how important their vote is - and to provide them with multiple opportunities to vote. We strongly believe it is in your best interest to vote “FOR” Proposal One today.
