ELMIRA, N.Y., April 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemung Financial Corporation (Nasdaq:CHMG) (the "Company") reports that the proxy card recently mailed to shareholders contains a typographical error in one of the proposals.
Specifically, at the annual meeting shareholders are being asked to approve, among other proposals, the ratification of the appointment of Crowe Horwath as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014 ("Proposal 3").
However, the proxy card accompanying the Notice and Proxy Statement sent to shareholders contains a typographical error with respect to Proposal 3. The proxy card incorrectly describes the date as December 31, 2013 (versus December 31, 2014).
The Notice and Proxy Statement, mailed on Tuesday, April 1st, to shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the upcoming annual meeting describes the Proposal correctly.
Through this press release the Company is hereby notifying the shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the annual meeting that the company intends to vote all proxies marked in favor of Proposal 3 as it is correctly described in the Notice and Proxy Statement. A new proxy card WILL NOT be mailed to shareholders.
