CareCloud Announces Results from Annual Shareholder Meeting
Shareholders Re-Elect Board Members and Vote to
Increase the Company’s Authorized Shares
SOMERSET, N.J., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareCloud, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MTBC, MTBCO, MTBCP), a leader in healthcare technology solutions for medical practices and health systems nationwide, today announced that it held its 2022 annual shareholders’ meeting on June 1, 2022, during which shareholders re-elected A. Hadi Chaudhry, John N. Daly, Mahmud Haq, and Cameron P. Munter for another two-year term. Shareholders also voted to amend CareCloud’s certificate of incorporation to increase the Company's authorized shares of common and preferred stock, as well as to amend CareCloud’s Amended and Restated Equity Incentive Plan (the “Equity Plan”) to add additional common and Series B preferred shares issuable under the plan.
CareCloud’s shareholders approved the following five proposals:
- Re-elect A. Hadi Chaudhry, John N. Daly, Mahmud Haq and Cameron P. Munter to the Board of Directors.
- Amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to increase the Company’s authorized shares of common stock from twenty-nine million shares to thirty-five million shares.
- Amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to increase the Company’s authorized shares of preferred stock from seven million shares to fifteen million shares.
- Amend the Company’s Equity Plan to increase the number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable under the Equity Plan from 4,851,000 shares to 5,851,000 shares.
- Amend the Company’s Equity Plan to add 200,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Preferred Stock issuable under the Equity Plan.
“By authorizing these additional shares, shareholders are giving management the ability to recapitalize in the way that is most beneficial to shareholders,” said CareCloud CFO, Bill Korn. “We have the ability to reduce our dividend expense by issuing Series B Preferred Shares with a lower coupon and redeeming Series A Preferred Shares or, at the right valuation, issue common stock to redeem Series A Preferred Shares.”
CareCloud is also proud to announce the re-appointment of A. Hadi Chaudhry, John N. Daly, Mahmud Haq, and Cameron P. Munter to the Board. Hadi Chaudhry, President and CEO, first joined CareCloud in October 2002 as Manager of IT, then later served as General Manager and CIO before serving as Vice President of Global Operations, and then President, prior to being appointed CEO in 2021. John N. Daly has over 50 years of experience in the financial services industry, including 23 years at E.F. Hutton where he served as an EVP and member of the Board of Directors. Mahmud Haq is the founder of CareCloud, and prior to founding the company held prestigious positions as CEO and President of Compass International Services Corporation and as Vice President of Global Risk Management for American Express. Cameron P. Munter joined CareCloud’s Board of Directors in June 2013. He previously served as U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan and has held a variety of high-profile diplomatic positions in Iraq, as well as having served as U.S. Ambassador to Serbia and U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission to Poland.
“We are pleased to announce the re-election of Mahmud, Hadi, John and Cameron,” said CareCloud’s Chief Strategy Officer, Stephen Snyder. “Our shareholders maintain confidence in Mahmud and Hadi, who have brought CareCloud to $140 million in revenue over the last two decades, as well as the leadership of our professional, veteran board members, who provide governance as we expand operations and focus on organic growth.”
The final voting tallies from this year’s annual meeting were included in a Form 8-K which was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
