VANCOUVER and SAN DIEGO, CA, March 24, 2020 /CNW/ - Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA - OTCQX: PHVAF) ("Phivida" or the "Company") announces that, given the extraordinary circumstances regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the resulting restrictions on public gatherings and non-essential business operations, it is postponing its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders scheduled to be held this Thursday March 26, 2020 at the Marriott Eaton Centre, on 525 Bay St, Toronto, Ontario. The Company will set and communicate details for a new AGM meeting date as soon as the orderly planning and preparation of the meeting can be conducted. As a result, the current meeting and record date are canceled, and shareholders are urged not to attend at the meeting premises.
"The health and safety of our teams, shareholders, and the community at large, remains our number-one priority," said David Moon, Interim CEO at Phivida. "This decision to postpone the holding of our AGM was not taken lightly, however, given the rapidly evolving public health crisis of COVID-19, management considered it to be in the best interests of the Company and the health and safety of our shareholders to postpone this week's scheduled AGM and hold it at a later date once conditions improve. We are also exploring all options, including potentially hosting an AGM virtually (subject to costs and availability). We will announce the new AGM meeting and record date as soon as we can secure a new plan."
