Urigen Pharmaceuticals Announces Results of Shareholder Meeting Vote on Proposed Restructuring

WILMINGTON, DE -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Urigen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., ("Urigen"), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of treatments for urological disorders and pain, announced the results of the matters submitted to its stockholders for approval at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 27, 2014, including a proposed restructuring of its outstanding debt and capital structure.

All of the proposals submitted for approval at the meeting were passed. A total of 66,435,523 shares were represented at the meeting in person or by proxy, representing approximately 70% of the issued and outstanding shares eligible to vote. The approval of all of the proposals at the meeting was a condition precedent to the closing of the proposed restructuring.

Urigen will now proceed to the fulfillment of the other conditions to the closing of the restructuring transaction and the closing. As a part of the restructuring, among other things, Urigen will issue to Platinum-Montaur Life Sciences, LLC ("Platinum") a secured convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $3,000,000 (Three Million Dollars), and Platinum and certain other existing lenders to the company, including its directors and executive officers, will receive additional equity securities of the company as consideration for waivers of existing defaults under instruments that were previously issued to them.

Dr. Dan Vickery, Chairman of Urigen, stated, "This is a great day for Urigen and its shareholders. The restructuring of our existing indebtedness and capital structure, combined with a significant new 3 million dollar investment by Platinum, along with our existing revenues, will complete our short term plan to be in a position to bring the company back to a fully operating status, and to focus on activities that will increase the value of the company going forward. After the closing of the restructuring, we will have the resources to put our lead product -- URG101 -- into the development program we have discussed with the FDA, and to focus on our opportunities for URG101 in the UK, Europe, and around the world. Furthermore, we believe that our new platform will better position us to raise significant additional capital over the next 12 months."

The complete proxy materials for the annual meeting are available on the Company's website under the heading "Company Events". Complete voting results from the annual meeting are listed below:

  • Dan Vickery, MBA, PhD was elected to the board with 65,028,484 votes (68% of the issued and outstanding shares, 98% of the votes cast).

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
