Leading Independent Proxy Advisory Firm ISS Recommends Tilray Shareholders Vote “FOR” All Proposals at Tilray’s Upcoming Special Meeting
“ISS’ endorsement affirms our conviction that the proposals to be voted on at the Special Meeting are in our shareholders’ best interests,” said
In determining to recommend FOR Proposal 1, ISS noted1:
- “The size of the proposed increase in the number of authorized shares of common stock is reasonable and there are no substantial concerns with the company's past use of shares.”
In recommending FOR the Governance Proposals (Proposals 2, 3, 4 and 5) ISS also highlighted that1:
“The charter amendments to declassify the board, allow shareholders to remove directors without cause, allow shareholder action by written consent and opt-out of the
Delaware"freeze-out" provision would improve shareholder rights and director accountability.”
