NEWARK, Calif., April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Depomed, Inc. (NASDAQ: DEPO) ("Depomed" or the "Company") today announced that it will not pursue the proposed reincorporation of the Company from California to Delaware that was proposed in its preliminary proxy statement for its upcoming Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting"). Depomed determined that to proceed with this proposal is not in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as it would result in a costly and distracting proxy contest at a time when the Company is focused on growing its business and driving shareholder value. The vote to elect directors and the other agenda items at the Company's Annual Meeting is scheduled to be held on May 18, 2016.
