IMPORTANT UPDATE TO:
All Persons or Entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Provectus”) during the period from December 17, 2013 through and including May 22, 2014, and were allegedly damaged thereby.
The Claims Administrator in this case received a high number of late requests from brokers and other nominees to send notice of this Settlement to potential Settlement Class Members, such that copies of the Postcard Notice were sent to some 6,000 potential Settlement Class Members as late as August 31. As a result, the Parties to the litigation asked the Court to reschedule the Settlement Hearing and to extend the deadlines for potential Settlement Class Members to: (i) submit a Proof of Claim form; and (ii) request exclusion from the Settlement Class or object to the Settlement, Plan of Allocation, and/or Lead Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and expenses.
On September 29, 2016, the Court entered an order granting the Parties’ request. According to the Court’s Order:
(i) Proof of Claim forms must be submitted online or postmarked on or before November 25, 2016 in order to be considered for inclusion in the Settlement;
(ii) Requests for Exclusion must be received on or before November 10, 2016; and
(iii) Objections to the Settlement, Plan of Allocation, and/or Lead Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and expenses must be received by the Court and counsel on or before November 10, 2016.
