Shareholder Director Nominations
On March 3, 2015, the Board of Directors (the Board) of Lightwave Logic, Inc. (the Company) approved Friday, May 15, 2015 as the date of the 2015 annual meeting of the Company's stockholders (the 2015 Annual Meeting). Shareholders of record at the close of business on March 27, 2015 will be entitled to vote at the 2015 Annual Meeting. The time and location of the 2015 Annual Meeting will be as set forth in the Companys proxy statement for the 2015 Annual Meeting.
Because the date of the 2015 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the anniversary of the Companys 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, a new deadline has been set for submission of proposals by shareholders intended to be included in the Companys 2015 proxy statement and form of proxy. Shareholders of the Company who wish to have a proposal considered for inclusion in the Companys proxy materials for the 2015 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), must ensure that such proposal is received by the Companys Secretary, Andrew Ashton, Lightwave Logic, Inc., 1831 Lefthand Circle, Suite C, Longmont, CO 80501, on or before the close of business on March 16, 2015, which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and send its proxy materials. Any such proposal must also meet the requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and our Bylaws in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2015 Annual Meeting. The March 16, 2015 deadline will also apply in determining whether notice of a shareholder proposal is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies under Rule 14a-4(c) of the Exchange Act.
On March 3, 2015, the Company issued a press release announcing Friday, May 15, 2015 as the date of the 2015 annual meeting of the Company's stockholders, a copy of which is hereby incorporated by reference and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
