Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations.

 

On February 11, 2019, the Board of Marker Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) established May 9, 2019 as the date of the Company’s 2019 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”). Because the 2019 Annual Meeting date has advanced by more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the Company’s 2018 annual meeting of stockholders, in accordance with Rule 14a-5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Company is informing stockholders of such change.

 

In addition, because the 2019 Annual Meeting will be held more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the 2018 annual meeting, the deadline for stockholder nominations or proposals for consideration at the 2019 Annual Meeting set forth in the Company’s 2018 Proxy Statement no longer applies. Accordingly, in order to be included in the proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting, stockholders who intend to nominate a candidate for election to the Board or to propose other business for consideration at the 2019 Annual Meeting to be included in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting (including a proposal made pursuant to Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended and any notice on Schedule 14N), must ensure that such proposal is received by the Company at its principal executive offices, 3200 Southwest Freeway, Suite 2240 Houston, Texas 77027, no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on February 26, 2019. Proponents are advised to submit their proposals by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the Company’s Corporate Secretary. Such deadline will also apply in determining whether notice of a stockholder proposal is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies under Rule 14a-4(c) of the Exchange Act. The Company currently intends to make its proxy materials available to stockholders beginning on or about March 27, 2019.

 

Further, the Company’s Bylaws require that the Company be given advance notice of stockholder nominations for election to the board of directors and of other matters which stockholders wish to present for action at an annual meeting of stockholders, other than matters included in the Company’s proxy statement. The required notice must be in writing, include all of the information specified in the Company’s Bylaws, as amended, and be received by the Company’s Corporate Secretary at its principal offices not later than the close of business on February 26, 2019.

 

Stockholder proposals intended to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders must comply with applicable Delaware law, the rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the procedures set forth in the Company’s Bylaws.
