ATCHISON, KANSAS, U.S. — MGP Ingredients, Inc. announced on Aug. 9 that its 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be reconvened at 10 a.m. Aug. 23, at the Theatre Atchison,  in Atchison, Kansas, U.S. The meeting was previously adjourned on May 23, 2013.

MGP Ingredients said it urges stockholders to support the company’s strong, independent leadership that acts in the best interests of all stockholders by voting for the board’s nominees on MGP’s white proxy card.

Voting is open by telephone, the Internet or mail prior to the meeting. Stockholders who have already voted need not submit another vote unless they wish to change their votes. See the information in the company's proxy statement regarding voting procedures.

The company's proxy statement and annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, are available at the following website that can be accessed anonymously:

The May 23 meeting was adjourned due to a lack of quorum caused by the revocation of proxies by certain preferred stockholders, including the MGP Ingredients, Inc. Voting Trust u/a/d Nov. 16, 2005, as amended (the “Voting Trust”). While there was a quorum of common stockholders at the meeting, a quorum of preferred stockholders was also required in order to continue.

The Atchison County District Court at the end of July ordered MGP to recommence its previously adjourned meeting on or before Aug. 26, and to provide stockholder tabulation data for inspection immediately.
