IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kofax® Limited (NASDAQ and LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart process applications that simplify and transform the First Mile™ of customer engagement, today announced the results of its special general meeting held at 11:00 a.m. U.K. time on February 9, 2015 at the offices of Dechert LLP, 160 Queen Victoria Street, London EC4V 4QQ.
All resolutions (except resolution 2) set out in the Notice of Special General Meeting were approved by the requisite number of shareholders on a show of hands and based on the proxies received.
The Directors are pleased to announce that resolution 1, authorising the Directors to cancel the listing of shares on the official list maintained by the UK Financial Conduct Authority and remove such shares from trading on the main market for listed securities of London Stock Exchange plc (the “Delisting”), was overwhelmingly approved.
Whilst a simple majority of shareholders voted in favour of resolution 2, proposing changes to the bye-laws, the Directors were disappointed to see that the required 75% majority was not achieved. The Directors will further discuss the proposals with shareholders and a further announcement will be made in due course. In the meantime, the Directors intend to proceed with the Delisting.
The total voting rights in the Company at 6 p.m. on January 5, 2015 were 92,210,070. Proxy appointments were validly made in respect of 78,225,511 common shares for all resolutions.
Special General Meeting:
Resolution 1: To authorize the directors to cancel the listing of shares on the official list maintained by the UK Financial Conduct Authority and remove such shares from trading on the main market for listed securities of London Stock Exchange plc.
Resolution 2: Conditional on delisting, to adopt the new Bye-laws.
Resolution 3: Conditional on delisting, to approve the Kofax Limited 2015 Equity Incentive Plan.
Resolution 4: Conditional on delisting, to approve the Kofax Limited 2015 Executive Bonus Plan.
Please note that a “vote withheld” is not a vote at law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes “for” and “against” a resolution.
