BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global Medical REIT Inc. (NYSE: GMRE) (the “Company,” “we” or “GMRE”), a net-lease medical office real estate investment trust (REIT) that acquires purpose-built healthcare facilities and leases those properties to strong healthcare systems and groups with leading market share, announced today that it is postponing its 2020 annual meeting of stockholders (the "Annual Meeting"), originally scheduled to be held on May 27, 2020. The Annual Meeting has been rescheduled and will now be held on June 24, 2020. No changes have been made to the record date, which will remain April 2, 2020. We decided to postpone the Annual Meeting due to timing considerations related to the emerging public health impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We currently intend to hold the Annual Meeting in person. However, we are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are sensitive to the public health and travel concerns our stockholders may have and the protocols that federal, state, and local governments may impose. In the event it is not possible or advisable to hold the Annual Meeting in person, we will announce alternative arrangements for the meeting as promptly as practicable, which may include holding the meeting partially or solely by means of remote communication. As always, we encourage you to vote your shares prior to the Annual Meeting.
