AquaBounty Technologies Announces Adjournment of 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to June 6, 2024



Harvard, MA,  May 24, 2024 –  AquaBounty Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AQB) (“AquaBounty” or the “Company”), a land-based aquaculture company utilizing technology to enhance productivity and sustainability, today announced that the Company has adjourned its 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), originally scheduled to be held on May 23, 2024, to June 6, 2024 at 8:30 a.m., Eastern Time.



On May 23, 2024 the Company convened its Annual Meeting. At that time, there were not present in person or by proxy a sufficient number of shares of the Company’s common stock to constitute a quorum. The presence in person or by proxy of the holders of a majority of the shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding on the record date and entitled to vote is required to constitute a quorum at the Annual Meeting. Accordingly, the Company adjourned the Annual Meeting without any business being conducted. The adjourned meeting will reconvene on June 6, 2024 at 8:30 a.m., Eastern Time, at 233 Ayer Road, Suite 4, Harvard, MA 01451,  to vote on the proposals described in the Definitive Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 5, 2024 (the “Proxy Statement”). The record date as of the close of business on March 25, 2024 remains unchanged for the determination of stockholders of the Company entitled to notice of and to vote at the reconvened Annual Meeting and any adjournments or postponements thereof.



During the period of adjournment, the Company and its proxy solicitor, Georgeson LLC,  will continue to solicit votes from the Company’s stockholders with respect to the proposals set forth in the Proxy Statement. At the time the Annual Meeting was adjourned, proxies had been submitted by holders representing 49.0% of the shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding on the record date and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. Proxies previously submitted in respect of the Annual Meeting will be voted at the adjourned meeting unless properly revoked.



No changes have been made to the proposals to be voted on by stockholders at the Annual Meeting. The Company urges all of its stockholders to read the Proxy Statement and other proxy materials relating to the Annual Meeting, which are available free of charge on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
