Do I have to vote my proxy?
In addition to knowing that you are helping influence the decisions made by the Company, it is required that a quorum is present in order to move ahead with the transaction of business at the meeting. A quorum is achieved when at least 50.1% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Common Stock entitled to vote as of the Record Date is represented in person or by properly executed proxy cards of holders.

There are nine proposals included in the proxy for the shareholder meeting that are included on page 2 of the filing, as well as details pertaining to each proposal and the company. Please carefully review the proxy, which can be located on the investors section of Company’s website, www.mgtci.com (click here) or at www.sec.gov (click here).
How do I vote my proxy?

If I vote via mail, phone or Internet, can I still attend the meeting?
Submitting a proxy via mail, phone or the Internet does not in any way affect a stockholder’s right to attend the shareholder meeting.

Anyone delivering a proxy card may revoke it at any time before it is exercised at the meeting by giving written notice of the revocation, by submitting a proxy card bearing a later date or by attending the meeting and voting in person.
Where can I access the proxy?
Why isn’t the acquisition of Demonsaw included as one of the proposals in the proxy?
In order to simplify the transactions for D-Vasive and Demonsaw, and conform with some customary tax issues, the two acquisitions have been effectively combined into one. This new structure was accomplished by D–Vasive purchasing Demonsaw, with MGT buying the combined company pending stockholder approval. As such, the proxy includes information for stockholders to vote on the proposed issuance of shares to consummate the announced acquisitions of assets from D-Vasive, Inc.
For more information about the structure of the D-Vasive acquisition, including the assets of Demonsaw, please see the proxy on the investors section of Company’s website (click here) or at www.sec.gov (click here).
