On December 6, 2019 Guardion Health Sciences, Inc.

The Charter Amendment was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on December 5, 2019, the results of which are reported below in Item 5.07 of this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

On December 5, 2019, the Company held its annual meeting of stockholders (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting, the Company’s stockholders (i) re-elected each of Michael Favish, Robert Weingarten, Mark Goldstone, David Evans, and Donald Gagliano as members of the Company’s board of directors, (ii) ratified the appointment of Weinberg & Company, P.A. as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, (iii) approved an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation to increase the number of shares of authorized common stock from 90,000,000 to 250,000,000, and (iv) granted discretionary authority to the Board of Directors to (i) amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to combine outstanding shares of our common stock into a lesser number of outstanding shares, or a “reverse stock split,” at a specific ratio within a range of no split and one-for-thirty (1-for-30), with the exact ratio to be determined by the board of directors in its sole discretion and (ii) effect a reverse stock split, if at all, within one year of the date the proposal was approved by stockholders (the “Reverse Stock Split Proposal”).
