Chindex International, Inc. Provides Update to Stockholders Regarding Special Meeting of Stockholders to Approve Merger Agreement

Required antitrust approval has been obtained

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHDX) ("Chindex" or the "Company"), today reminded stockholders that the close of business on August 19, 2014 has been established as the record date for voting at the September 16, 2014 special meeting of stockholders.  The special meeting is being held at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time on September 16, 2014 to consider a proposal to adopt the merger agreement by and among the Company, Healthy Harmony Holdings, L.P. and Healthy Harmony Acquisition, Inc. (the "Merger Agreement").

As detailed in the proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 7, 2014, the China antitrust authority approval required for the merger was obtained on August 4, 2014.  The merger is not subject to a financing condition.

It is important that stockholders vote as soon as possible – no matter how many or how few shares they own.  Any shares that are not voted will have the same effect as a vote "Against" the proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement.  If the proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement is approved, stockholders will be entitled to receive $24.00 in cash for each share they own upon completion. The Company also reminds stockholders to make the necessary arrangements with their custodial banks and brokerage firms to ensure they have the ability to vote at the special meeting. Shares held in margin accounts may be loaned out by brokers on the August 19, 2014 record date and, if subject to a stock loan, cannot be voted by the beneficial owner whose shares were loaned out. In order to ensure that stockholders have the ability to vote, they should move their shares into a cash account in advance of the record date. 

The Company's Board of Directors, acting upon the unanimous recommendation of the Transaction Committee comprised solely of independent and disinterested directors, unanimously recommends that stockholders vote "FOR" the adoption of the Merger Agreement.

Any stockholders with questions should contact the Company's proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners at (800) 322-2885 (toll-fee in North America) or at + (212) 929-5500.
