SEATTLE, Feb. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- WMI Holdings Corp. (OTC: WMIH) ("WMI Holdings" or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has scheduled the Company's annual meeting of shareholders for 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time, April 28, 2015, at the offices of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, One Bryant Park, Bank of America Tower, New York, New York 10036-6745.
The record date for shareholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting is March 5, 2015.
Because the Company has moved the date of its annual meeting by more than 30 days from the date of last year's annual meeting of shareholders, the deadlines for submissions of shareholder proposals relating to the annual meeting have changed from the dates specified in last year's proxy statement.
To be considered for presentation at the annual meeting, shareholder proposals submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") must be received at the offices of the Company at 1201 Third Avenue, Suite 3000, Seattle, Washington 98101, no later than March 4, 2015. Timely submission of a proposal does not mean that such proposal will be included in the Company's proxy statement.
A shareholder who intends to present a proposal at the annual meeting, other than pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, must comply with the requirements as set forth in the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws, as amended on April 1, 2013, including Section 2.13, which requires shareholders to deliver notice of all proposals, nominations for director and other business to the Company's principal executive offices, in this circumstance, no later than the close of business on the tenth day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made (or March 7, 2015).
