The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.
Notice to Shareholders
On February 23, 2017, Virgil D. Thompson, a member of the Board of Directors (the Board) of Mallinckrodt plc (the Company), notified the Company that he will not stand for re-election to the Board at the Companys 2017 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (the Annual Meeting). Mr. Thompson stated that he decided to not stand for re-election for health reasons and not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Companys operations, policies, or practices.
Because Mr. Thompson will not be a nominee for election as a director at the Annual Mee ting, there are now only nine nominees for election as directors. Each of the other nominees is named in our Notice of 2017 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders and Proxy Statement (the Proxy Statement). Shareholders may continue to use the same proxy card that was made available with the Proxy Statement. Any votes cast for Mr. Thompson will not be counted. It is not necessary for you to re-submit the proxy card if you have already done so.
