Staffing 360 Solutions Announces Special Meeting of Stockholders

Company Announces Details of its Recently Filed Definitive Proxy Statement and Special Meeting of Stockholders to Be Held on June 15, 2017

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 27, 2017) - Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STAF), a public company executing an international buy-and-build strategy through the acquisition of staffing organizations in the United States and the United Kingdom, announced today the details of its upcoming Special Meeting of Stockholders -- more fully described in the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this morning -- which will be held at 641 Lexington Ave, 27th Floor, New York, NY 10022, at 10:00 am Eastern Time on June 15, 2017.

The purpose of the Special Meeting is to vote on the proposed change in the Company's domicile from Nevada to Delaware, as well as three new proposals relating to Jackson Investment Group, which have been approved by the Company's board of directors and are now pending consideration by the Company's shareholders.

"As mentioned in my Chairman's Letter we had a very successful Annual Shareholder Meeting, which allowed us to complete various initiatives including over $9 million in subsequent financings," stated Brendan Flood, Executive Chairman at Staffing 360 Solutions. "Our Special Meeting will now allow us to change our domicile from Nevada to Delaware, which is expected to provide the Company with more business-friendly laws and other benefits. We are also excited about the three proposals relating to Jackson Investment Group as they will allow our Company to seek additional financings under Nasdaq listing rules, as we continue to grow our business and close additional M&A opportunities."

Staffing 360 Solutions' board of directors anticipates the proposed change in domicile from Nevada to Delaware would provide the following benefits:

  • In contrast to Nevada, Delaware is the most popular jurisdiction in the United States, with over 50% of publicly traded US corporations and 60% of the Fortune 500 firms incorporated in the state;
  • Because of its prevalence, most major law firms have Delaware expertise in-house, so the Company can save time and legal expense;
  • Delaware has a long history of business-friendly laws that are modern and flexible;
  • Delaware has a well-developed and predictable body of corporate law, which helps companies avoid the unknown;
  • Institutional investors often prefer to invest in Delaware corporations, since the laws are familiar to them.

As mentioned above, in addition to the change to Delaware, the definitive proxy statement also includes three proposals relating to Jackson Investment Group and the potential to own more than 20% of the Company's common stock, which management believes will be beneficial for the Company as we continue to grow and secure additional financings in 2017. In particular, the remaining three proposals are as follows:

  • To potentially issue Common Stock pursuant to the Jackson Warrant Agreement, the Notes and the April Purchase Agreement in accordance with Nasdaq rule 5635(b).
  • To potentially issue Common Stock pursuant to the April Purchase Agreement with Jackson in accordance with Nasdaq rule 5635(d).
  • To authorize the Company to issue up to 600,000 shares of common stock or convertible securities in one or more future transactions for aggregate consideration of not more than $2,000,000 in accordance with Nasdaq rule 5635(d).

Please refer to the definitive proxy statement for the full details behind each proposal. As per the definitive proxy statement, all shareholders of record and beneficial owners as of the Company's record date, which was set to coincide with the close of business on April 18, 2017, will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting of Stockholders.

Depending on whether an investor is a shareholder of record, or their shares are beneficially owned through a bank or broker in "street name," each shareholder will either receive a physical package in the mail over the next several days, or separate instructions will be sent from their bank or broker, according to their practice. Proxy materials in each package will include the Proxy Statement and Proxy Voting Card. Each shareholder may also review these materials by visiting www.proxyvote.com and entering the control number found on the Proxy Voting Card.

Similar to the Company's recent Annual Shareholder Meeting, the Company has engaged Broadridge for printing and vote processing, as well as Morrow Sodali to solicit proxies on behalf of the board of directors. If you have any questions about accessing materials or voting, please call 1-800-690-6903.

"We encourage every shareholder to vote," concluded Mr. Flood. "Especially for those that may have missed the vote for the Annual Meeting, it is imperative to read the Proxy Statement and vote via mail, telephone or online as soon as possible so we have the necessary quorum for the Special Meeting."
