GARDEN CITY, N.Y.—Last week, Emerging Vision (OTC BB: ISEE.OB) cancelled the annual meeting it had planned to hold on Sept. 21, saying the date the meeting was called for did not fall within the 50-day period following determination of the company’s shareholders entitled to notice of, and a right to cast a vote at, the annual meeting, as required by Emerging Vision’s by-laws.

According to the company statement, canceling the meeting, which was issued the day before it was to be held, Emerging Vision “intends to schedule an annual meeting for a date in the near future.”

Events planned for the cancelled meeting included shareholder votes on the company’s board of directors as well as on increasing the number of authorized shares of Emerging Vision’s common stock from 150 million to 300 million, according to a proxy statement for the meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Aug. 29.

Late last week, Emerging Vision also filed another report with the SEC detailing recent financial results of Oshawa, Ontario-based The Optical Group, the 525-member buying group the Sterling Optical parent acquired for $3.6 million effective July 31.
