Item 8.01 Other Events>.
The 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Beacon Power Corporation (the “Company”) has been scheduled for May 13, 2009 (the “2009 Annual Meeting”) at the Company’s offices in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts.
Because the above-mentioned date of the 2009 Annual Meeting represents a change of more than thirty (30) days from the anniversary of the Company’s 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Company has set a new deadline for the receipt of stockholder proposals submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2009 Annual Meeting. In order to be considered timely, such proposals must be received by the Corporate Secretary at the Company’s principal executive office at 65 Middlesex Road, Tyngsboro, Massachusetts 01879 no later than February 20, 2009. This deadline will also apply in determining whether notice is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies for purposes of Rule 14a-4(c) under the Exchange Act.
Additionally, in accordance with the advance notice provisions set forth in the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws, in order for a stockholder proposal to be submitted outside of Rule 14a-8 or a director nomination submitted by a stockholder to be considered timely, it must be received by the Corporate Secretary at the Company’s principal executive office at 65 Middlesex Road, Tyngsboro, Massachusetts 01879 no later than March 2, 2009.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
