Enzo Biochem Announces Preliminary Results of Voting at Annual
Shareholder Meeting

 

New York, NY, February 25, 2020 – Enzo Biochem (NYSE:ENZ) announced preliminary results of voting at the 2019 Annual Shareholder meeting held today.

 

According to these preliminary results, shareholders did not approve the proposal to increase the size of Board, voted to elect Fabian Blank, Peter Clemens and Rebecca Fischer to the Board of Directors, approved the non-binding advisory resolution on executive compensation, ratified the appointment of Enzo’s independent registered public accounting firm and approved the By-Law amendment to implement a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections.

 

“We thank our shareholders for their participation in this year’s shareholder meeting and welcome Fabian and Peter to the Board of Directors. We look forward to working collectively with our new colleagues, along with our strong management team, to create shareholder value at Enzo,” said Dr. Elazar Rabbani, Chairman and CEO of Enzo Biochem.

 

The final results will be reported on a Form 8-K that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) once they have been certified by the independent inspector of elections.
