No Dissenters Rights

PROPOSAL 1: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

 

Pursuant to our Bylaws, each member of our Board of Directors serves until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her respective successor is duly elected and qualifies. Currently, our Board has nine members, five of whom are “independent directors” as such term is defined in Section 803 of the NYSE American Company Guide. The NYSE American definition of “Independent Director” means a person other than an Executive Officer or employee of the Company or any other individual having a relationship which, in the opinion of the Company's Board of Directors, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.

 

The term of office of all directors will expire at this year's Annual Meeting. On the nomination and recommendation of our Board, Nicholas Gerber, David W. Neibert, Scott Schoenberger, Matt Gonzalez, Derek Mullins, Kathryn D. Rooney, Erin Grogan, Tabatha Coffey and Joya Delgado Harris will stand for reelection as directors at the Annual Meeting.

 

Stockholders who own in excess of 50% of the Company’s outstanding Voting Stock have advised us that they intend to vote for the election of Directors. As a result, each of the director nominees will be elected to serve a one-year term, or until his or her respective successor is duly elected and qualifies. If any nominee should become unable to serve or, for good cause, will not serve as a director, a substitute nominee as may be proposed by our Board. However, we are not aware of any circumstances that would prevent any of the nominees from serving.

 

The following nominees for election as directors serves until the next annual meeting of stockholders in 2019 and until their successors are duly elected and qualifies:

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Board of Directors Meetings and Committees

 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, our Board met at least once per quarter with additional special meetings conducted telephonically to address issues arising from acquisition transactions and other non-routine events. The Board has not formed any standing committees. During fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, each director then serving on the Board attended at least 75% of the aggregate number of meetings of the Board, either in person or telephonically.

 

It is anticipated that each of the current members of the Board will attend the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The Company does not have a formal policy with respect to directors’ attendance at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

 

 Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight

 

Under the Company’s Bylaws, the Board elects the Company’s Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer. Each of these positions may be held by the same person or may be held by different people. Currently, these two offices are held by Mr. Gerber. The Board believes that the Company and its stockholders are best served by having a policy that provides the Board the ability to select the most qualified and appropriate individual to lead the Board as Chairperson. The Board also believes it is important to remain flexible when allocating responsibilities among these two offices in a way that best serves the needs of the Company. The Board believes that having Mr. Gerber serve as both Chairman and CEO provides an efficient and effective leadership model for the Company. Combining the Chairman and CEO roles fosters clear accountability, effective decision-making, and alignment on corporate strategy.

 

The Company is exposed to a number of risks that are inherent with every business. Such risks include, but are not limited to, financial and economic risks and legal and regulatory risks. While management is responsible for the day-to-day management of these risks, the Board is responsible for the oversight of risk management. The Board is responsible for evaluating the adequacy of risk management processes and determining whether such processes are being implemented by management. The Board will discuss significant risks or exposures and assess the steps management has taken to minimize such risks to the Company.

 

Independent Directors  

 

The Board has adopted the standard of independence set forth in the NYSE American Company Guide in order to determine whether members of the Board are “independent”. Upon consideration of the criteria and requirements regarding director independence set forth in Section 803 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide, the Board has determined that the following five directors, Matt Gonzalez, Tabatha Coffey, Erin Grogan, Joya Delgado Harris and Derek Mullins, meet the NYSE American’s independence standards, including the criteria for independence set forth in Rule 10A-3(b)(1) of the Exchange Act.

 

Committees

 

The Board does not currently have any standing committees. Prior to the expansion of the Board and the election of the director Nominees, the Board was comprised of four directors, with an additional 3 vacancies. The Board did not believe it was necessary to form standing committees due to the Company’s and the Board’s small size. As previously composed, the Board was able to efficiently address matters such as the nomination of candidates for director and the review and approval of executive officer and director compensation. Following the effectiveness of the expansion of the Board and the election of the director Nominees, the Board will review the appropriateness of forming standing audit, nominating, corporate governance and compensation committees in light of the Company’s growth and the expansion of the Board and will form such standing or ad hoc committees as the Board deems appropriate.

 

Director Nominations and Nomination Committee

 

The Board does not currently have a standing nominating committee. The full Board recommends nominees for election by the Company’s shareholders and is responsible for monitoring and safeguarding the independence of the Board.

 

Under the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws, Stockholders may recommend any person to be a director of the Company by writing to the Company’s Secretary not less than 45 days nor more than 75 days prior to the date on which the Company first mailed its proxy materials for the previous year’s annual stockholders’ meeting. Each submission must include (i) a brief description of the candidate, (ii) the candidate’s name, age, business address and residence address, (iii) the candidate’s principal occupation and the number of shares of the Company’s capital stock beneficially owned by the candidate and (iv) any other information that would be required under the Commission’s rules in a proxy statement listing the candidate as a nominee for director. The Amended and Restated Bylaws revised and updated the Company’s previous procedures for stockholder submission of director nominations by adding the requirement for advance notice.

 

In conducting a search for director candidates, the Board may use its network of contacts to compile a list of potential candidates, but it may also engage, if it deems appropriate, a professional search firm. The Board generally reviews all recommended candidates at the same time and subjects all candidates to appropriate review criteria. Members of the Board should be qualified, dedicated, and ethical and have experience relevant to the Company’s operations and understand the complexities of the Company’s business environment. The Board evaluates candidates in the context of the current composition of the Board. As part of this assessment, Board considers diversity of age, skills and such other factors as it deems appropriate, given the current needs of the Board and its committees.

 

Stockholder Communications with the Board

 

Stockholders may communicate with the Board by written correspondence. Correspondence from the Company’s stockholders to the Board or any individual directors or officers should be sent to the Company’s Secretary. The Secretary will screen all communications for product inquiries, new product suggestions, resumes, job inquiries, surveys, business solicitations and advertisements, as well as hostile, threatening, illegal, unsuitable, frivolous, patently offensive or otherwise inappropriate material before forwarding the correspondence to the Board. Correspondence addressed to either the Board as a body, or to any director individually, will be forwarded by the Company’s Secretary to the Chairman of the Board or to the individual director, as applicable. The Company’s Secretary will regularly provide to the Board a summary of all stockholder correspondence that the Secretary receives. This process has been approved by the Company’s Board. 

 

All correspondence should be sent to Concierge Technologies, Inc., 1202 Puerta Del Sol, San Clemente, CA 92673, Attention: Mr. David W. Neibert, Chief Operations Officer and Secretary.

 

 Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

 

 The Board has adopted a code of ethics (the “Code”) designed, in part, to deter wrongdoing and to promote honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships, full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files with or submits to the Commission and in the Company’s other public communications, compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations, the prompt internal reporting of violations of the code to an appropriate person or persons, as identified in the code, and accountability for adherence to the code. The Code applies to all directors, executive officers and employees of the Company. The Company will provide a copy of the Code to any person without charge, upon request to Mr. David W. Neibert, Chief Operations Officer and Secretary by calling 949-429-5370 or by writing to Concierge Technologies, Inc., 1202 Puerta Del Sol, San Clemente, CA 92673, Attention: Mr. David W. Neibert, Chief Operations Officer and Secretary.

 

 The Company intends to disclose any amendments to or waivers of its Code as it applies to directors or executive officers by filing them on Form 8-K.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

During our last fiscal year, we did not enter into any transactions with related persons, promoters or certain control persons as covered by Item 404 of Regulation S-K. However, in connection with that certain Securities Purchase Agreement with Nicholas Gerber and Scott Schoenberger, certain now current executive officers and directors may have formed a “group” under Section 13(d)(3) of the Act which may result in related party transactions in the future. These affiliations are disclosed herein.

 

On January 26, 2015, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with two accredited investors, Nicholas Gerber and Scott Schoenberger, (the “Purchasers”) pursuant to which we agreed to sell and the Purchasers agreed to purchase approximately 13,333,333 shares of common stock and approximately 108,172 shares of Series B preferred stock of the Company (adjusted for the effect of the 1:10 reverse stock split in December 2015 and the 1:30 reverse stock split in December 2017) in exchange for $3,000,000 USD. Pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, Purchasers acquired a controlling interest in the Company pursuant to the issuance of the above shares which constituted approximately 70.0% of the voting control of the Company. Following the closing of the Securities Purchase Agreement, Mr. Gerber and Schoenberger became officers and directors of the Company.

 

On April 8, 2016 and May 25, 2016, the Company entered into convertible promissory note agreements (the “Promissory Notes”) with the Gerber Irrevocable Family Trust, an affiliate of our shareholder and CEO, that resulted in the funding of $350,000 and with the Schoenberger Family Trust, an affiliate of our shareholder and director, that resulted in the funding of $250,000, respectively. The Promissory Notes bear interest at four percent (4%) per annum and increases to nineteen percent (19%) in the event of default by the Company. The Company and the noteholder negotiated the interest rate at arm’s length relying upon the available market rate for long-term deposits at financial institutions as well as the current rate of return realized by the noteholder for cash deposits currently held. Larger deposits traditionally fall into a “Jumbo” rate category with marginally higher returns. Interest ranged from annual percentage rates of 0.01% at the lowest to 1.75% at the highest. Recognizing the unsecured nature of the promissory note, and the historical record of continued operating losses by the Company, a rate of 4% annual interest was agreed upon in light of the heightened default risk over traditional investment instruments. There was no beneficial conversion feature identified as of the date of issuance of the Promissory Notes.

 

On September 19, 2016, the Company entered into a conditional Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), dated September 19, 2016, with Wainwright Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Wainwright”) and certain shareholders of Wainwright (the “Sellers”), pursuant to which the Sellers conditionally agreed to sell, and the Company conditionally agreed to purchase, the total issued and outstanding common stock of Wainwright (the “Wainwright Shares”).

 

In connection with the acquisition of Wainwright on December 9, 2016 the Promissory Notes were subsequently amended to remove the conversion feature. Additionally, as a result of the transaction completed on December 9, 2016, current shareholders of Wainwright became shareholders of the Company. Prior to the transaction, Mr. Gerber, along with certain family members and certain other Wainwright shareholders, owned the majority of the common stock in the Company as well as Wainwright. Following the closing of this transaction, he and those shareholders continue to own the majority of the Company voting shares. Mr. Gerber and Mr. Schoenberger (and the through the control of their respective trusts which hold stock in the Company) entered into a Voting Agreement reflective of a similar Voting Agreement in place for Wainwright wherein they have agreed to vote in concert with regard to all matters that come before the shareholders or the board of directors for a vote. This Voting Agreement establishes them as a control group.

 

Any future transactions by and among the parties mentioned above may qualify as related party transactions and will be disclosed accordingly.

 

We have adopted a policy that any transactions with directors, officers or entities of which they are also officers or directors or in which they have a financial interest, will only be on terms consistent with industry standards and approved by a majority of the disinterested directors of the Board of Directors and based upon a determination that these transactions are on terms no less favorable to us than those which could be obtained by unaffiliated third parties. This policy could be terminated in the future. In addition, interested directors may be counted in determining the presence of a quorum at a meeting of the Board of Directors or a committee thereof which approves such a transaction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE

Additionally, if current stockholders with a shared address received multiple copies of this Information Statement or other corporate mailings and would prefer the Company to mail one copy of future mailings to stockholders at the shared address, notification of such request may also be made by mail or telephone to the Company’s principal executive offices.
