Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations.

 

As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Enveric Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 24, 2021, the Company entered into that certain amalgamation agreement with MagicMed Industries Inc. (“MagicMed”), pursuant to which, among other things, the amalgamated corporation will become an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Pursuant to the amalgamation agreement, the Company filed a registration statement on Form S-4 with the SEC that contained a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus with respect to a proposed special meeting of stockholders to consider and vote on a proposal to approve the issuance of shares of the Company’s common stock to MagicMed equity holders in the proposed amalgamation.

 

On July 1, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company established September 14, 2021 as the date of the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”) and set the close of business on July 30, 2021 as the record date for those stockholders of record who will be entitled to notice of and to vote at the 2021 Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors determined that it was in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to hold the 2021 Annual Meeting in lieu of the special meeting of stockholders relating to the proposed amalgamation between the Company and MagicMed to minimize the cost, time, and management attention of hosting two stockholder meetings in close proximity. At the 2021 Annual Meeting, the Company expects to ask stockholders to elect directors, approve the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021, and approve the issuance of the Company’s shares in connection with the proposed amalgamation between the Company and MagicMed. The Company will publish additional details regarding the exact time, virtual location, and matters to be voted on at the 2021 Annual Meeting in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting. Because the date of the 2021 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the anniversary date of the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2020 Annual Meeting”), in accordance with Rule 14a-5(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company is informing stockholders of such change. Accordingly, a new deadline has been set for submission of proposals by stockholders for the 2021 Annual Meeting.

 

Rule 14a-8 Proposals Deadline. Stockholders of the Company who wish to have a proposal considered for inclusion in the Company’s definitive proxy materials for the 2021 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act must ensure that such proposal is submitted in writing by July 23, 2021, which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and send its proxy materials. Any such proposal must also meet the requirements of Delaware law as well as those requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the SEC in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2021 Annual Meeting. The July 23, 2021 deadline will also apply in determining whether notice of a stockholder proposal is timely for purposes of exercising discretionary voting authority with respect to proxies under Rule 14a-4(c) of the Exchange Act.

 

Advance Notice Deadlines. In addition, in accordance with the requirements contained in the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws, stockholders of the Company who wish to present a proposal at the 2021 Annual Meeting outside of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act or to nominate a person for election as a director, must ensure that written notice of such proposal (including all of the information specified in the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws) is received by the Company’s Secretary no later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of the 2021 Annual Meeting is first made. Accordingly, notice of stockholder proposals or nominations of directors for the 2021 Annual Meeting must be received by the close of business, Mountain Time, on July 16, 2021. Any such proposal must meet the requirements set forth in the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws, applicable Delaware law and the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC in order to be brought before the 2021 Annual Meeting.

 

Proposals and notices must be in writing and received by our Corporate Secretary at Enveric Biosciences, Inc., Attn: Corporate Secretary, 4851 Tamiami Trail N, Suite 200, Naples, Florida 34103.
