The BioTime Bylaws provide that a quorum for an annual or special shareholder meeting consists of a majority of shares entitled to vote present in person or by proxy at such meeting. A majority of shares present in person or by proxy at any annual or special meeting may adjourn such meeting, whether or not a quorum is present.  

The DGCL provides that a quorum for a stockholder meeting consists of a majority of shares entitled to vote present in person or represented by proxy at such special meeting, unless the certificate of incorporation or Bylaws of the corporation provide otherwise.

 

Asterias’ Bylaws provide that the holders of a majority of the stock of Asterias entitled to vote must be present in person or by proxy at each meeting of the stockholders to constitute a quorum. However, less than a quorum has the power to adjourn.

Asterias’ Bylaws provide that special meetings of stockholders may be called at any time by the Chairman of the Board, a majority of the directors then in office even if less than a quorum of the authorized number of directors, or by one or more stockholders entitled to cast not less than 10% of the votes eligible to the cast at that meeting.

     
Notice of Stockholder Meetings
 

All notices of meetings of shareholders shall be sent or otherwise given not less than 10 nor more than 60 days before the date of the meeting and otherwise in accordance with the BioTime Bylaws. The notice shall specify the place, date and hour of the meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the general nature of the business to be transacted, or, in the case of the annual meeting, those matters which the BioTime Board, at the time of giving the notice, intends to present for action by the shareholders. The notice of any meeting at which directors are to be elected shall include the name of any nominee or nominees whom, at the time of the notice, management intends to present for election.

 

Upon written request by a party entitled to call a special meeting of shareholders, the Chairman of the BioTime Board, the President, any Vice President or the Secretary of BioTime shall cause notice to be given to the shareholders entitled to vote that a special meeting will be held, provided that the date of the requested special meeting shall be not less than 35 nor more than 60 days after the receipt of such request. 

  As permitted under the DGCL, Asterias’ Bylaws provide that written notice of the time and place of every meeting of stockholders and, in the case of a special meeting, the business to be acted on at such meeting shall be given at least 10 days before the meeting to each stockholder of record having voting power and entitled to such notice. The DGCL and Asterias’ Bylaws provide that written notice of any meeting shall be given not less than 10, nor more than 60, days before the date of a stockholder’s meeting to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting as of the record date for determining the stockholders entitled to notice of the meeting.
