The following is a summary of the matters voted on by the Company’s stockholders at the special meeting:
Proposal 1-Agreement and Plan of Merger : The Company’s stockholders voted to approve the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated August 7, 2017, as it may be amended from time to time, by and among the Company, Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc., a New York corporation (“Fresenius”), and Broadway Renal Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Fresenius (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub would merge with and into the Company (the “Merger).

In connection with the special meeting, the Company also solicited proxies with respect to the adjournment of the special meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies, in the event there were insufficient votes from the Company’s stockholders to approve Proposal 1.  As there were sufficient votes from the Company’s stockholders to approve Proposal 1, adjournment of the special meeting to solicit additional proxies was unnecessary and such proposal was not submitted to the Company’s stockholders for approval at the special meeting.
