The Board of Directors of EQRx, Inc. (EQRx) established that the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of EQRx will be held on Friday, September 30, 2022. The record date for the determination of EQRx stockholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the 2022 Annual Meeting will be the close of business on Friday, August 5, 2022. Because the date of the 2022 Annual Meeting differs by more than thirty (30) days from the anniversary date of the 2021 Special Meeting, in lieu of an Annual Meeting, of Stockholders, which was held on December 16, 2021, EQRx is hereby providing notice, pursuant to Rule 14a-5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), of the deadlines for any stockholder proposals pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act and for any stockholder nomination or proposal outside of Rule 14a-8 via this Form 8-K.
To be considered for inclusion in this year’s proxy materials for the 2022 Annual Meeting, stockholder proposals must be submitted in writing by the close of business on Friday, July 29, 2022, to EQRx’s Corporate Secretary at EQRx’s principal executive offices at 50 Hampshire Street, Cambridge, MA 02139. In addition to complying with this deadline, stockholder proposals intended to be considered for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2022 Annual Meeting must also comply with EQRx’s bylaws and all applicable rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Exchange Act. Additionally, any stockholder who intends to submit a proposal regarding a director nomination or any other matter of business at the 2022 Annual Meeting not to be included in EQRx’s proxy materials for the 2022 Annual Meeting, must also ensure that notice of any such proposal (including any additional information specified in EQRx’s bylaws) is received by the Corporate Secretary at EQRx’s principal executive offices by the close of business on July 29, 2022.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
