Alpha Holdings Comments on ISS Report
SEONGNAM, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 26, 2019--
Alpha Holdings, Inc. (KOSDAQ:117670) (“Alpha”) today issued the following statement in response to a report by Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) regarding the vote on the proposed takeover of OncoSec Medical Incorporated (NASDAQ:ONCS) (“OncoSec”) by China Grand Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Holdings (“CGP”) and Sirtex Medical US Holdings, Inc. (“Sirtex”), an affiliate of GCP (together, “China Grand”) that will be held at the upcoming Special Meeting of OncoSec Stockholders on January 17, 2020.
“We disagree with ISS’s conclusion and continue to urge our fellow OncoSec stockholders to send a strong message to the OncoSec Board by voting AGAINST the China Grand Takeover on the BLUE proxy card. It’s surprising that ISS would disregard Alpha’s stockholder-friendly financing proposal in favor of a transaction with such blatant shortcomings and governance issues as the China Grand Takeover.”
Importantly, despite its endorsement of the China Grand Takeover, ISS noted OncoSec’s track record of dilution in its report 1:
Alpha encourages all stockholders to review their shareholder presentation and alternate funding proposal, and to visit www.VoteNoOncoSec.com to learn more about why Alpha opposes the takeover proposal. If stockholders have any questions, require assistance in voting their BLUE proxy card, or need additional copies of Alpha’s proxy materials, Alpha asks that they contact Okapi Partners at the phone numbers or email address listed below.
