Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ: RIOT), an industry leader in Bitcoin mining and hosting, is encouraging stockholders to vote for Proposal No. 4 during the upcoming Annual General Meeting. The recommendation comes from both Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) and Glass, Lewis & Co., leading independent proxy advisor firms that provide voting recommendations to institutional investors. Stockholders are encouraged to vote in one of three ways: before or during the meeting by internet, by mail, or by dialing 1-866-620-9211 or 1-800-690-6903. The voting deadline is July 26, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET, and stockholders are encouraged to vote well in advance. Proposal No. 4 proposes to increase the number of authorized shares of Riot Blockchain, Inc. common stock, authorized for issuance, a move that is also supported by the company’s board of directors. According to the company, increasing the number of authorized shares will allow Riot to “act in a timely manner if and when the company’s Board of Directors believes it is in the best interests of the company and stockholders to take strategic action, without the delay and expense that would be required at that time to obtain stockholder approval to increase the authorized shares. By increasing the number of authorized shares of common stock, Riot will have greater flexibility to pursue value-creative opportunities, which may include corporate transactions, public or private offerings of equity securities, and attracting and retaining top talent in a highly competitive market.”
