“We are very excited that a large majority of our shareholders have voted overwhelmingly in favor of the recommendations of the board of directors,” said Chris Spencer, Wizzard CEO. “In my opinion, this clearly demonstrates our shareholder’s positive support for our acquisition strategy and global media distribution expansion plans. I expect we will see the same level of support from our shareholders for our aggressive growth strategy. We believe this acquisition will propel us to the forefront of digital media distribution for the rapidly growing mobile consumer market and give us a better opportunity to attract institutional investors with a focus on international media companies with strong cash-flow and substantial fundamental growth potential.”
The acquisition of FAB by Wizzard and the appointment of FAB’s representatives to Wizzard’s Board of Directors are subject to approvals by each company’s shareholders and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals both in the U.S. and China.
