Amendment and Restatement of Bylaws

 

On September 20, 2021, the Board of Directors (“Board”) of Advaxis, Inc. (the “Company”) approved by unanimous written consent Amendment No. 1 to the Second Amended and Restated By-Laws (the “By-Laws Amendment”), which became effective immediately.

 

The Board added a new Section 5 to Article VI of the Second Amended and Restated By-Laws that designates the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, or if the Court of Chancery does not have jurisdiction, the federal district court for the District of Delaware, as the sole and exclusive forum for certain legal actions, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum. Additionally, the By-Laws Amendment assigns the federal district courts of the United States of America to be the sole and exclusive forum for the resolution of any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933 and requires the consent, in writing, of the Company to the selection of any alternative forum as it relates to such a claim.

 

The foregoing description of the By-Laws Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified entirely by reference to the full text of the By-Laws Amendment, which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
