Stockholders of record at the close of business on
Stockholders who hold their shares in “street name,” which means the shares are held of record by a broker, bank or nominee, should contact their broker, bank or nominee to ensure that votes related to the shares beneficially owned by such stockholders are properly counted. In this regard, holders must provide the broker, bank or nominee with instructions on how to vote the shares or, if such a stockholder wishes to attend the meeting and vote in person, obtain a proxy from the broker, bank or nominee.
Additionally, Quartet advises holders of its securities to move these securities into accounts which do not permit the lending of securities, so called cash accounts or segregated accounts, and out of accounts that permit the lending of securities, such as margin accounts. These steps are designed to ensure that votes related to common stock beneficially owned by stockholders are properly counted. Beneficial owners of common stock that have been lent out (either with or without the beneficial owners’ knowledge) are not permitted to vote those shares.
Information on Seeking Conversion Rights
As indicated in the definitive proxy statement/prospectus, pursuant to Quartet’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, a record holder of shares of Quartet’s common stock issued in its initial public offering may, if the stockholder affirmatively votes on the business combination, demand that Quartet convert such shares into cash. Demand may be made by checking the box on the proxy card provided for that purpose and returning the proxy card in accordance with the instructions provided. A holder exercising his conversion rights must tender his stock certificate to Quartet’s transfer agent prior to the time that a vote is taken with respect to the proposed merger. A record holder of Quartet common stock may tender his shares by either delivering the stock certificate to Quartet’s transfer agent or by delivering the shares electronically using Depository Trust Company’s DWAC (Deposit Withdrawal at Custodian) System. Questions concerning the procedure to have shares converted should be directed to Quartet’s transfer agent,
For additional information relating to the matters to be acted on at the special meeting as well as the conditions to exercising conversion rights, investors are urged to read the definitive proxy statement/prospectus filed by Quartet with the
