Item 8.01 Other Events.
On June 25, 2021, the Company called to order the Annual Meeting. At the Annual Meeting, there were not present or represented by proxy a sufficient number of shares of the Company’s common stock in order to constitute quorum. The Company adjourned the Annual Meeting until July 16, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (the “Reconvened Annual Meeting”).
The Reconvened Annual Meeting will be held at the same virtual meeting location, www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ONTX2021. This will enable the Company’s stockholders of record as of the record date, which was May 28, 2021, additional time to consider and vote on the proposals, and enable the Company’s proxy solicitor, Alliance Advisors, LLC, more time to assist the Company with the solicitation of stockholder votes on the proposals.
At the Reconvened Annual Meeting, stockholders will be deemed to be present in person and vote at such adjourned meeting in the same manner as disclosed in the Annual Meeting Proxy Statement. Valid proxies submitted prior to the Annual Meeting will continue to be valid for the Reconvened Annual Meeting, unless properly changed or revoked prior to votes being taken at the Reconvened Annual Meeting.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
