Section 5—Corporate Governance and Management

Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations.

On April 2, 2012, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of GeoMet, Inc. (the “Company”) postponed the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which was scheduled to be held on May 11, 2012. The Company is in the process of setting a new record date and selecting a new date upon which to hold the Annual Meeting, which the Company will provide once such information becomes available.

Because the Board anticipates that the Annual Meeting will be held more than 30 days from the calendar date of the Company’s 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the due dates for the provision of any qualified stockholder proposal or qualified stockholder nominations under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the bylaws of the Company listed in the Company’s 2011 Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A as filed with the SEC on April 6, 2011 are no longer applicable. Such nominations or proposals, including any notice on Schedule 14N, are now due to the Company no later than May 3, 2012.
