Item 8.01. Other Events.

As GenVec, Inc. (the "Company") previously announced on May 28, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors has approved a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution of the Company (the "Plan of Dissolution"), subject to stockholder approval. Following that announcement, the Company received several proposals for transactions with the Company, including transactions to purchase all or a portion of the Company's assets or to engage in mergers with private companies that were looking to use the Company principally as a means to become publicly traded. As the Company previously announced on June 24, 2013, the Company concluded that it was advisable to consider a number of the proposed transactions and to solicit additional proposals prior to submitting the Plan of Dissolution to the Company's stockholders.

At a meeting on August 7, 2013, the Board of Directors unanimously concluded that proceeding with seeking stockholder approval for the Plan of Dissolution, and receiving that approval, continued to be in the best interests of the Company and the Company's stockholders. The Board of Directors viewed the ability of the counterparties to complete the proposed transactions, in a timely manner, if at all, as extremely risky, the prospects for preserving value as very uncertain and the likelihood of receiving significant consideration in an asset sale as unlikely. Accordingly, if the Company were to continue to pursue one or more of these proposals, the Board of Directors was concerned that the Company's assets will continue to decline to a point where the Company can no longer meet its obligations with no guaranty that a transaction can be completed.

If the Company's stockholders approve the Plan of Dissolution, the Company plans to file a certificate of dissolution with the Delaware Secretary of State, complete the liquidation of the Company's assets, satisfy the Company's remaining obligations and make distributions to the Company's stockholders of any available liquidation proceeds, at such times as the Board of Directors, in its discretion and in accordance with Delaware law, deems appropriate or advisable. It may take time to liquidate some assets, and the Board of Directors, or a trustee appointed by the Board of Directors, may determine to delay liquidating one or more of the Company's assets in order to attempt to maximize the amount eventually distributed to the Company's stockholders. There is no certainty that any such delay would result in a greater return, or any return, to our stockholders.

The Board of Directors may, to the full extent permitted by law, modify or amend the Plan of Dissolution without any further stockholder approval if it determines that such amendment is in the best interest of the stockholders. In addition, if the Board of Directors determines that liquidation and dissolution are not in the best interests of the stockholders, the Board of Directors may direct that the Plan of Dissolution be abandoned, either before or after stockholder approval.


The Company plans to file with the SEC and mail to its stockholders a Proxy Statement in connection with the proposed liquidation and dissolution. The Proxy Statement will contain important information about the Company, the proposed liquidation and dissolution and related matters. Investors and stockholders are urged to read the Proxy Statement carefully when it is available. Investors and stockholders will be able to obtain free copies of the Proxy Statement under Schedule 14A and other documents filed with the SEC by the Company through the website maintained by the SEC at In addition, investors and stockholders will be able to obtain free copies of the Proxy Statement from the Company by contacting the Corporate Secretary of GenVec, Inc. at (240) 632-0740.
