2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders

 

As previously disclosed, on December 13, 2016, Eastern Virginia Bankshares, Inc. (“EVBS”) and Southern National Bancorp of Virginia, Inc. (“SONA”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which EVBS will merge with and into SONA (the “Merger”) and SONA will be the surviving corporation in the Merger.

 

On February 23, 2017, the EVBS Board of Directors decided to postpone the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders because of the pending transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, which are expected to close in the second quarter of 2017.

 

As a result of the postponement of the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the due dates for the submission of any qualified shareholder proposal under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and EVBS’s bylaws, described in the EVBS 2016 Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on April 21, 2016, are no longer applicable. In the event the EVBS Board of Directors determines it advisable to hold the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, EVBS will notify shareholders of the new meeting date and the due dates by which any qualified shareholder proposal should be submitted. Any such notice will be provided in accordance with state law, the EVBS bylaws and the requirements of the SEC.
