HARRISON, N.Y., July 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MGT) announced today that it has filed the Preliminary Proxy Statement for its upcoming meeting of shareholders. The document can be accessed via the Company's website, www.mgtci.com, or at www.sec.gov.
The Proxy includes information for stockholders to vote on the proposed issuance of shares to consummate the announced acquisitions of assets from D-Vasive, Inc. and Demonsaw LLC. In order to simplify these transactions, and meet certain customary tax issues, the two acquisitions have been effectively combined into one. This new structure was accomplished by D–Vasive purchasing Demonsaw, with MGT buying the combined company pending stockholder approval. MGT will acquire the same agreed-upon assets and the sellers will have received the same agreed-upon consideration. The total number of MGT common shares to be issued to D-Vasive is 43,800,000 (equaling the earlier 23,800,000 for D-Vasive and 20,000,000 for Demonsaw).
Stockholders will also vote on the election of John McAfee as Executive Chairman of the Board, the Company's name change to "John McAfee Global Technologies, Inc.", along with other proposals. Subject to SEC review, and mandatory notice requirements, MGT's shareholder meeting is still expected to occur in August 2016.
John McAfee, MGT's proposed Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to file the proxy for the upcoming shareholder meeting, at which our shareholders will vote on various proposals to implement the previously announced strategic shift in MGT's business. We are excited to move a step closer towards positioning the Company to address various cyber threats through advanced protection technologies for enterprise and personal tech devices."
