Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations

On April 11, 2017, the Board of Directors of Helius Medical Technologies, Inc (the “Company”) determined that the Company’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) will be held on June 5, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. local time at Sheraton Bucks County Hotel, 400 Oxford Valley Road, Langhorne, PA 19047, or at such other location as the Board may determine and set forth in the Company’s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting. The Board also set April 12, 2017 as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and vote at, the meeting.

Because the Annual Meeting will be held more than 30 days prior to the date of the anniversary of the Company’s 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the deadline for any shareholder proposal or shareholder nomination under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) listed in the Company’s 2016 Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, as filed with the SEC on August 16, 2016, is no longer applicable. Any such shareholder proposal or nomination, including any notice on Schedule 14N, intended to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, must be received by the Company at its principal executive offices by no later than April 21, 2017, and directed to the attention of the Company’s Secretary. Other requirements for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials are set forth in the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC and the Company’s bylaws. Shareholders may contact the Company’s Secretary to obtain a copy of the relevant bylaw provisions regarding the requirements for making shareholder nominations and proposals.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
