SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT
FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON JUNE 23, 2017
This supplement updates the Definitive Proxy Statement, dated May 9, 2017, previously furnished to stockholders of Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. in connection with the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. to be held on June 23, 2017 (the “Annual Meeting”). Unless the context otherwise requires, references herein to “we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company” refer to Alliqua BioMedical, Inc., a Delaware corporation.
A broker non-vote occurs when a broker holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular proposal because the broker does not have discretionary voting power with respect to that item and has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner. Notwithstanding the information contained in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 9, 2017 (the “Proxy Statement”), we expect that banks, brokers, and other nominees will have discretionary authority to vote your shares on two proposals: the Reverse Stock Split Proposal (Proposal 2) and the proposal to ratify the appointment of Marcum LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017 (Proposal 7). If you do not provide voting instructions, we expect that your bank, broker or other nominee will be permitted to vote your shares on each of these proposals.
We do not expect that that banks, brokers and other nominees will be allowed to vote on all other proposals included in the Proxy Statement unless they have received voting instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares.
This supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement. To the extent that information in this supplement differs from or updates information contained in the Proxy Statement, the information in this supplement controls. The Proxy Statement is available to stockholders at www.proxyvote.com.
The date of this supplement to the Proxy Statement is June 16, 2017.
