Progress Software Corporation (the “Company”) is filing this Form 8-K to report that the Company has fixed Thursday, May 17, 2018 as the date of its 2018 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”).
Important Additional Information and Where to Find It
The Company, its directors and certain of its executive officers and employees may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from shareholders in connection with the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting. The Company plans to file a proxy statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the 2018 Annual Meeting (the “2018 Proxy Statement”), together with a WHITE proxy card. STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE 2018 PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT THE COMPANY WILL FILE WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY IN THEIR ENTIRETY WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Additional information regarding the identity of these potential participants, none of whom owns in excess of one percent (1%) of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock, and their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be set forth in the 2018 Proxy Statement and other materials to be filed with the SEC in connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting. Information relating to the foregoing can also be found in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for its 2017 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2017 Proxy Statement”), filed with the SEC on May 12, 2017. To the extent holdings of the Company’s securities by such potential participants (or the identity of such participants) have changed since the information printed in the 2017 Proxy Statement, such information has been or will be reflected on Statements of Change in Ownership on Forms 3 and 4 filed with the SEC.
Stockholders will be able to obtain, free of charge, copies of the 2018 Proxy Statement, any amendments or supplements thereto and any other documents (including the WHITE proxy card) when filed by the Company with the SEC in connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting at the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov), at the Company’s website (http://investors.progress.com) or by contacting the Company’s VP Treasury & Investor Relations, Brian Flanagan, by phone at 781-280-4817, by email at Flanagan@progress.com or by mail at Progress Software Corporation at 14 Oak Park, Bedford, MA 01730, Attention: Investor Relations. In addition, copies of the proxy materials, when available, may be requested from the Company’s proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners, Inc. at email@example.com or toll-free at 800-322-2885.
