OXFORD, Conn., Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nxt-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) (the "Company" or "NXT-ID"), a provider of technology products and services for healthcare applications, today sent an important letter to its shareholders from the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Chia-Lin Simmons, regarding the upcoming Special Meeting of the Company's shareholders ("Special Meeting"), scheduled to be held on Friday, October 15, 2021.
The Company is asking its shareholders to vote today "FOR" the reverse split proposals relating to NXT-ID's common stock and Series C preferred stock so that it can regain compliance with Nasdaq requirements and continue to be listed on this major stock exchange. The need to approve each of the reverse stock split proposals is urgent; without such approval, the Company expects that its stock will be delisted from Nasdaq as soon as October 18, 2021, which would adversely affect the ease of trading and value of all of the Company's securities, including that of its common stock.
The letter to shareholders provides information regarding the two reverse stock split proposals, why they are necessary, and how a vote "FOR" each of them will allow NXT-ID to maintain steady access to capital to pursue its new management team's growth strategies. Shareholders can learn more about the two reverse stock split proposals and stay up to date regarding this important vote by visiting the Company's newly-launched microsite: www.voteFORnxt-id.com.
Shareholders as of the Special Meeting's record date, September 16, 2021, will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to read about the reverse stock split proposals in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on September 17, 2021. The Definitive Proxy Statement can also be found at www.voteFORnxt-id.com. Shareholders who have any questions or need assistance voting their shares should contact the Company's proxy solicitor, Laurel Hill Advisory Group, LLC, at 888-742-1305.
If your shares are registered directly in your name with NXT-ID's transfer agent, VStock Transfer, LLC, you are considered the "stockholder of record" of those shares and the proxy statement for the Special Meeting is being sent directly to you by NXT-ID. Shareholders of record (that is, shareholders who hold their shares in their own name) can vote by mail, online, email, fax or in person at the Special Meeting by following the instructions provided on the proxy card.
If you choose to submit your proxy by mail, simply mark, date and sign your proxy card and return it in the postage-paid envelope provided.

Beneficial Owners of Shares Held in Street Name
If your shares are held in "street name" (that is, in the name of a bank or broker or other holder of record), you will receive instructions from the holder of record that you must follow in order for your shares to be voted. Internet voting will also be offered to shareholders owning shares through most banks and brokers. If your shares are held with a brokerage firm or custodial bank, you are considered the "beneficial owner" of shares held in street name, and the proxy statement for the Special Meeting was mailed or emailed to you by your broker, bank or nominee, who is considered the stockholder of record of those shares. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank or nominee on how to vote the shares held in your account.
However, holders of shares held in "street name" may not vote these shares in person at the Special Meeting unless such holders request and obtain a legal proxy from such bank, broker or other holder of record.
