HAWTHORNE, N.Y. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE:TARO) (“Taro” or the “Company”) announced today that it has decided to schedule an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting”), for March 27, 2014 . The agenda for the Meeting will be the ratification of certain resolutions adopted by the Company’s shareholders at its 2013 annual general meeting (“2013 AGM”). Certain resolutions on the agenda for the 2013 AGM were subject to special approval provisions under Israeli law, requiring approval by the majority of the total votes of non-controlling shareholders or shareholders who do not have a personal interest in the resolutions. Following the 2013 AGM, the Company has learned that voting forms used by certain shareholders, which were not prepared by the Company, may not have informed the shareholders of their obligation to inform the Company if they are controlling shareholders or if they have a personal interest in these resolutions, and is therefore calling the Meeting for the purpose of having these resolutions ratified. Each of these resolutions was duly adopted at the 2013 AGM, all proxy material prepared by the Company did inform shareholders of their disclosure obligations, and the Company has not received any evidence to indicate that any votes were improperly included of controlling shareholders or shareholders who had a personal interest in these resolutions. Nevertheless, in order to address any procedural irregularities which may have occurred, through no fault of the Company, Taro has decided to call the Meeting for the purpose of ratifying these resolutions. The resolutions to be included in the agenda for the Meeting are (i) approval of the Company’s compensation policy, (ii) approval of compensation to three of its directors ( Dilip Shanghvi , Sudhir Valia and Kal Sundaram ), and (iii) re-election of its external directors (Ilana Avidov Mor and Dan Biran ). The Company will issue a proxy statement for the Meeting, which will be held on March 27, 2014 , at 10:00 a.m. ( Israel time), at the Company’s offices, 14 Hakitor Street , Haifa Bay 26110, Israel .
