Cardica Issues Statement Regarding Broadfin
Wed 5:30 pm ET (PR Newswire)
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardica, Inc. (CRDC) today confirmed that Broadfin Capital, LLC has filed its preliminary proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission stating that it intends to solicit proxies to vote in favor of its three director nominees at the company's 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Cardica remains open to reaching a mutually acceptable resolution to avoid a costly proxy contest and is willing to consider reconstituting the Board further. We are interested in interviewing Broadfin's nominees and are willing to consider adding nominees that meet Broadfin's previously stated criteria of "Board members that have experience running public companies during the launch of major products." Cardica again invites Broadfin to provide the Board the opportunity to interview Broadfin's nominees and reopen constructive dialogue to avoid this costly path of a proxy contest. We take the views of our stockholders seriously. In particular, we have engaged in an extensive dialogue with Broadfin since June 2014 in a good faith effort to reach a resolution that benefits all stockholders. The interaction has included numerous meetings and phone calls with Broadfin and repeated attempts by Cardica to enter into a confidentiality agreement so we could provide Broadfin the requested material non-public information. However, despite our efforts to work constructively, Broadfin has not been in contact with us since our September 30 invitation to discuss a path to settlement.
