FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
IVAX DIAGNOSTICS REMINDS ITS STOCKHOLDERS TO VOTE TODAY
-- Annual Meeting of Stockholders is Scheduled to be Held on Friday, June 10, 2011 --
MIAMI (BUSINESS WIRE) June 6, 2011 IVAX Diagnostics, Inc. (NYSE Amex: IVD) is reminding its stockholders to vote their shares in anticipation of IVAX Diagnostics 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which is scheduled to be held on Friday, June 10, 2011.
Kevin Clark, IVAX Diagnostics President, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, states to IVAX Diagnostics stockholders as of the close of business on April 15, 2011, the record date for the Annual Meeting, The Annual Meeting is only a short time away. In order for your vote to be counted, please take the time to cast your vote today. The voting process is simple. You can vote via the Internet or telephone or by mail. If you have any questions or need assistance voting your shares, please call Georgeson Inc., which is IVAX Diagnostics proxy solicitor for the Annual Meeting, toll-free at 1-866-297-1410.
IVAX Diagnostics is asking that you vote FOR all of the proposals to be considered at the Annual Meeting, as recommended by the Board of Directors of IVAX Diagnostics. If you do not vote your shares of our common stock, then your failure to vote will have the same effect as a vote cast AGAINST three of the proposals to be considered at the Annual Meeting, which are set forth in the Proxy Statement that IVAX Diagnostics previously mailed to you and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 18, 2011.
Mr. Clark concluded, If IVAX Diagnostics does not receive the required number of votes before the Annual Meeting as further described in the Proxy Statement it had previously mailed and filed, then IVAX Diagnostics may be required to curtail or reduce its operations and IVAX Diagnostics may not be able to survive and any investment in IVAX Diagnostics may be lost.
