Wizzard Shareholders Approve FAB Acquisition

Wizzard Software Corporation (NYSE MKT: WZE), the world’s leading podcast network, today announced that it held its annual shareholder meeting on July 30th at which time the proxy voting results were announced.

80% of the total outstanding shares were represented and a quorum was reached. 95% of the shares voted were cast in favor of the acquisition of FAB and the addition of FAB’s founder and CEO to the Board of Directors. All other proxy items were approved by the shareholders as well.

In total, six proxy items were approved by shareholders. Wizzard plans to announce the record date for the spin off of its healthcare operations imminently and to close the FAB acquisition in the upcoming weeks.

“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.
