PROXY STATEMENT
FOR THE 2019 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON FEBRUARY 28, 2019
 

This proxy statement (this “Proxy Statement”) is furnished in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of Destiny Media Technologies Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our” and the “Company”) for use at the 2019 Annual General Meeting of the stockholders of the Company (the “Meeting”) to be held on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) at the offices of Miller Thomson at 725 Granville Street, Suite 400, Vancouver, BC V7Y 1G5 Canada , and at any adjournment or postponement thereof, for the purposes set forth in the preceding Notice of Annual General Meeting.

This Proxy Statement, the Notice of Annual General Meeting and the enclosed Form of Proxy are expected to be mailed to the Company’s stockholders on or about January 24, 2019.

The Company does not expect that any matters other than those referred to in this Proxy Statement and the Notice of Annual General Meeting will be brought before the Meeting. However, if other matters are properly presented before the Meeting, the persons named as proxy appointees will vote upon such matters in accordance with their best judgment. The grant of a proxy also will confer discretionary authority on the persons named as proxy appointees to vote in accordance with their best judgment on matters incidental to the conduct of the Meeting.

Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials for the Meeting to be held on February 28, 2019. This Proxy Statement to the stockholders is available at the Company’s principal office located at 1110 - 885 W Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3E8.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE PROXY MATERIALS AND THE MEETING

Why am I receiving this Proxy Statement and proxy card?

You are receiving this Proxy Statement and proxy card because you are a stockholder of record as at the close of business on January 16, 2019 (the “Record Date”), and you are entitled to vote at this Meeting. This Proxy Statement describes issues on which the Company would like you, as a stockholder, to vote. It provides information on these issues so that you can make an informed decision. You do not need to attend the Meeting to vote your shares.

When you sign the proxy card, you appoint Frederick Vandenberg, Chief Executive Officer, President and Corporate Secretary of the Company, and Sandra Boenisch, Chief Financial Officer, and Treasurer, as your representatives at the Meeting. As your representatives, they will vote your shares at the Meeting (or any adjournments or postponements) as you have instructed them on your proxy card. With proxy voting, your shares will be voted whether or not you attend the Meeting. Even if you plan to attend the Meeting, it is a good idea to complete, sign and return your proxy card in advance of the Meeting, just in case your plans change.

If an issue comes up for vote at the Meeting (or any adjournments or postponements) that is not described in this Proxy Statement, your representatives will vote your shares, under your proxy, at their discretion, subject to any limitations imposed by law.

Who is soliciting my vote?

The Board of Directors of the Company is soliciting your proxy to vote at the Meeting.

1


Who pays for this proxy solicitation?

The Company will bear the entire cost of solicitation of proxies, including preparation, assembly and mailing of this proxy statement, the proxy card and any additional information furnished to stockholders. Copies of solicitation materials will be furnished to banks, brokerage houses, depositories, fiduciaries and custodians holding shares in their names that are beneficially owned by others to forward to these beneficial owners. The Company may reimburse persons representing beneficial owners for their costs of forwarding the solicitation material to the beneficial owners of the shares at the Company's discretion. Original solicitation of proxies by mail may be supplemented by telephone, facsimile, electronic mail or personal solicitation by the Company’s directors, officers or other regular employees. No additional compensation will be paid to directors, officers or other regular employees for such services.

Who is entitled to attend and vote at the Meeting?

Only stockholders of the Company of record at the close of business on January 16, 2019 (the “Record Date”), will be entitled to vote at the Meeting. Stockholders entitled to vote may do so by voting those shares at the Meeting or by proxy.

What matters am I voting on?

You are being asked to vote on the following matters:

1.

Proposal 1 - To elect four members of the Company’s Board of Directors to hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders or until their respective successors have been elected or qualified.

   
2.

Proposal 2 - To ratify the appointment of BDO Canada LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending August 31, 2019.

The Company will also consider any other business that properly comes before the Meeting.

How do I vote?

You have several voting options. You may vote:

  • by signing your proxy card and mailing it to the address on the proxy card;
  • by signing and faxing your proxy card to the fax number provided on the proxy card;
  • by signing and emailing a scanned copy of your proxy card to the email address provided on the proxy card; and
  • by attending the Meeting and voting in person.

If your shares are held in an account with a brokerage firm, bank, dealer, or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in a “street name” and these proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank or other nominee on how to vote the shares in your account. You are also invited to attend the Meeting. However, since you are not the stockholder of record, you may not vote your shares in person at the Meeting unless you request and obtain a valid proxy card from your broker, bank, or other nominee.

What if I share an address with another person and we received only one copy of the proxy materials?

The Company will only deliver one Proxy Statement to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless it has received contrary instructions from one or more of the stockholders. The Company will promptly deliver a separate copy of this Proxy Statement to a stockholder at a shared address to which a single copy of the document was delivered upon oral or written request to:

Destiny Media Technologies Inc. Attention: Frederick Vandenberg, Corporate Secretary 1110 - 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 3E8

Stockholders may also address future requests for separate delivery of Proxy Statements and/or annual reports by contacting us at the address listed above.

What if I change my mind after I return my proxy?

You may revoke your proxy and change your vote at any time before the polls close at the Meeting. You may do this by:

(a)

executing and delivering a written notice of revocation of proxy to the office of the Company at any time before the taking of the vote at the Meeting;

     
(b)

executing and delivering a later-dated proxy relating to the same shares to the office of the Company at any time before taking of the vote at the Meeting; or

     
(c)

attending the Meeting in person and:

     
(i)

giving affirmative notice at the Meeting of your intent to revoke their proxy; and

(ii)

voting in person.

Any written revocation of proxy or subsequent later-dated proxy should be delivered to the office of the Company as follows: Destiny Media Technologies Inc., Attention: Frederick Vandenberg, Corporate Secretary, 1110 - 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 3E8. Attendance at the Meeting will not, by itself, revoke a stockholder’s proxy without the giving of notice of intent to revoke that proxy.

What constitutes a quorum?

The presence in person or by proxy of holders of at least one percent (1%) of the Company’s outstanding common shares constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business at the meeting.

Stockholders who abstain from voting on any or all proposals, but who are present at the Meeting or represented at the Meeting by a properly executed proxy will have their shares counted as present for the purpose of determining the presence of a quorum. Proxies reflecting broker non-votes will also be counted as present at the Meeting for the purpose of determining the presence of a quorum.

In the event that a quorum is not present at the Meeting, or in the event that a quorum is present but it becomes necessary or appropriate to adjourn the meeting for other reasons, the persons named as proxies on the enclosed proxy card may propose one or more adjournments of the Meeting. The persons named as proxies will vote upon such adjournment after consideration of all circumstances that may bear upon a decision to adjourn the Meeting. Any adjournment will require the affirmative vote of a majority of shares represented at the Meeting in person or by proxy.

Any business that might have been transacted at the Meeting originally called may be transacted at any such adjourned session(s) at which a quorum is present. Under the Company’s bylaws, if we adjourn the Meeting, notice need not be given if the time and place of the adjourned meeting is announced at the Meeting unless the meeting is adjourned for more than 30 days or a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting. The Company will pay the costs of preparing and distributing additional proxy materials to stockholders, if required in connection with any adjournment.

3


What are Broker non-votes?

A broker non-vote occurs when shares held by a broker for the account of a beneficial owner are not voted for or against a particular proposal because the broker has not received voting instructions from that beneficial owner and the broker does not have discretionary authority to vote those shares. Shares constituting broker non-votes are not counted or deemed to be present in person or by proxy for the purpose of voting on a non-routine matter at the Meeting and, therefore, are not counted for the purpose of determining whether stockholders have approved the election of directors in proposal 1, because such proposals is considered a non-routine matter. If you do not provide voting instructions to your broker, your broker will have discretion to vote your shares only on proposal 2, because the Company expects that matter to be considered a routine matter.

How are abstentions and broker non-votes treated?

Stockholders may vote for or against the proposals or they may abstain from voting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum at the Meeting, but will not be counted as either in favor or against the proposals.

What vote is required to approve each item and what are the effects of broker non-votes, abstentions and withhold votes?

As of the Record Date, there were 55,013,874 shares of our common stock outstanding and entitled to vote.

Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes of the shares present and entitled to vote at the Meeting. “Withhold” and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the votes on this proposal.

Proposal 2 requires the majority of the votes cast, excluding abstentions, at the Meeting in order to be approved. Abstentions will have no effect on proposal 2. Broker non-votes are not applicable with respect to proposal 2.

Will my shares be voted if I do not sign and return my proxy card?

If your shares are held through a brokerage account, your brokerage firm, under certain circumstances, may vote your shares.

If your shares are registered in your name, and you do not sign and return your proxy card, your shares will not be voted at the Meeting.

Will I be entitled to appraisal rights under Nevada law?

Under Nevada law, the Company’s stockholders are not entitled to appraisal rights in connection with any of the proposals to be acted upon at the Meeting.

When is the deadline for stockholder proposals and nominations for the 2020 Annual Meeting?

As an SEC filer, the Company is currently subject to Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Under Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act, certain stockholder proposals may be eligible for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement and form of proxy for its 2020 annual meeting of stockholders. In order to be eligible for inclusion, such proposals must be received at the Company’s principal executive offices not less than 120 calendar days before the date the company's proxy statement is released to stockholders in connection with the previous year's annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event the Company holds its 2020 annual meeting more than 30 days before or after the one year anniversary date of this 2019 Meeting, then the deadline shall be a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials. Thus, in order to be eligible for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statements and form of proxy for the Company’s 2020 annual meeting, stockholder proposals must be received by September 27, 2019, unless the date of the 2020 annual meeting is changed by more than 30 days from the date of this Meeting, in which case the deadline for submission of stockholder proposals shall be a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials. If the Company’s 2020 annual meeting is changed by more than 30 days from the one-year anniversary of this Meeting, the Company will disclose the new deadline for stockholder proposals under Item 5 of the Company’s earliest possible Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or, if impracticable, by any means reasonably calculated to inform stockholders. In addition to the requirements set forth herein, stockholder proposals must otherwise comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act.

The Company’s bylaws also provides separate notice procedures for nomination of directors by stockholders. Under the Company’s bylaws, the nomination of directors by stockholders must be made pursuant to timely notice in writing to the secretary of the Company in accordance with the time provisions set forth in the preceding paragraph. For greater clarity, stockholder nomination of directors for the 2020 annual meeting must be received by September 27, 2019, unless the date of the 2020 annual meeting is changed by more than 30 days from the date of this Meeting, in which case the new deadline shall be a reasonable before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials. Additionally, the stockholder notice nominating a director must comply with the content requirements set forth in the Company’s bylaws. See the discussion under the heading “Stockholder Nomination of Directors” in this Proxy Statement for more detail.

Any stockholder who wishes to submit a proposal is encouraged to seek independent counsel about SEC requirements and to consult the Company’s bylaws. The Company will not consider any proposals that do not meet the SEC requirements for submitting a proposal or comply with the Company’s bylaws where applicable. Notices of intention to present proposals for the Company’s next annual meeting should be delivered to Destiny Media Technologies Inc., 1110 - 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 3E8, Attention: Frederick Vandenberg, Corporate Secretary.

Jay Graber are also independent for purposes of Item 407(a) of Regulation S-K. The independent standards used in making such determination is that of the NYSE American LLC (“NYSE American”).

During the fiscal year ended August 31, 2018, the Audit Committee held four meetings, the Compensation Committee held two meetings, and the Nominating Committee did not hold any meetings. All three members of the Board of Directors attended the Company’s 2018 annual meeting of stockholders.

Hyonmyong Cho and S. Jay Graber are independent under the independence standards of the NYSE American applicable to compensation committee members.

The Compensation Committee’s basic responsibility is to review the performance and development of the Company’s management in achieving corporate goals and objectives and to assure that the Company’s executive officers are compensated effectively in a manner consistent with the strategy of the Company, competitive practice, sound corporate governance principles and stockholder interests. The committee reviews and approves all compensation to directors and executive officers. In carrying out its mandate with respect to compensation, the Compensation Committee takes into account the types of compensation and the amounts paid to officers of comparable publicly traded companies. The compensation committee may not delegate any of its authority. The Company does not engage compensation consultants. Executive officers may suggest to committee what amount of compensation they think it suitable or fair with respect to each candidate.

Neither the committee nor management has engaged consultants for determining or recommending the amount or form of executive or director compensation.

The compensation committee has a charter, a current copy of which is available on the Company’s corporate website at https://www.dsny.com/exec-compensation-charter .

Nominees for director are selected on the basis of their integrity, experience, achievements, judgment, intelligence, personal character, and capacity to make independent analytical inquiries, ability and willingness to devote adequate time to Board duties, and likelihood that he or she will be able to serve on the Board for a sustained period. Due consideration will be given to the Board's overall balance of diversity of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. The Nominating Committee will also consider factors such as global experience, experience as a director of a public company and knowledge of relevant industries. The Nominating Committee periodically reviews its nominations policy to evaluate their effectiveness.

The Nominating Committee has a charter, a current copy of which is available on the Company’s corporate website at https://www.dsny.com/corporate-governance-charter . The Nominating Committee’s charter contains more information about the Nominating Committee’s process for identifying and evaluating nominees for director (including nominees recommended by stockholders), specific minimum qualifications the Nominating Committee believes must be met, certain qualities or skills the Nominating Committee believes are necessary for the Company’s directors to possess, and the Company’s overall policies concerning director nominations.

Stockholder Nomination of Directors

The committee will accept for consideration submissions from stockholders of recommendations for the nomination of directors. Acceptance of a recommendation for consideration does not imply that the committee will nominate the recommended candidate.

All stockholder nominating recommendations must be in writing, addressed to the committee care of the Company's Corporate Secretary at the Company's principal headquarters, 1110 - 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 3E8. Submissions must be made by mail, courier or personal delivery. Submissions by e-mail will not be considered.

A nominating recommendation must be accompanied by the following information concerning each recommending stockholder:

  a.

The name and address, including telephone number, of the recommending stockholder;

     
  b.

The number of the Company's shares owned by the recommending stockholder and the time period for which such shares have been held;

     
  c.

If the recommending stockholder is not a stockholder of record, a statement from the record holder of the shares (usually a broker or bank) verifying the holdings of the stockholder and a statement from the recommending stockholder of the length of time that the shares have been held. (Alternatively, the stockholder may furnish a current Schedule 13D, Schedule 13G, Form 3, Form 4 or Form 5 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission reflecting the holdings of the stockholder, together with a statement of the length of time that the shares have been held); and

11



  d.

A statement from the stockholder as to whether the stockholder has a good faith intention to continue to hold the reported shares through the date of the Company's next annual meeting of stockholders.

If a recommendation is submitted by a group of two or more stockholders, the information regarding recommending stockholders must be submitted with respect to each stockholder in the group.

A nominating recommendation must be accompanied by the following information concerning the proposed nominee:

  a.

the information required by Item 401 of SEC Regulation S-K (providing for disclosure of the name, address, any arrangements or understanding regarding nomination and five year business experience of the proposed nominee, as well as information regarding certain types of legal proceedings within the past five years involving the nominee);

     
  b.

the information required by Item 403 of SEC Regulation S-K (providing for disclosure regarding the proposed nominee's ownership of securities of the Company); and

     
  c.

  d.

a description of all relationships between the proposed nominee and the recommending stockholder and any agreements or understandings between the recommending stockholder and the nominee regarding the nomination.

     
  e.

a description of all relationships between the proposed nominee and any of the Company's competitors, customers, suppliers, labor unions or other persons with special interests regarding the Company.

The recommending stockholder must furnish a statement supporting its view that the proposed nominee possesses the minimum qualifications prescribed by the committee for nominees, and briefly describing the contributions that the nominee would be expected to make to the board and to the governance of the Company.

The recommending stockholder must state whether, in the stockholder's view, the nominee, if elected, would represent all stockholders and not serve for the purpose of advancing or favoring any particular stockholder or other constituency of the Company.

The nominating recommendation must be accompanied by the consent of the proposed nominee to be interviewed by the committee, if the committee chooses to do so in its discretion (and the recommending stockholder must furnish the proposed nominee's contact information for this purpose), and, if nominated and elected, to serve as a director of the Company.

A stockholder (or group of stockholders) wishing to submit a nominating recommendation for an annual meeting of stockholders must ensure that it is received by the Secretary of the Company, as provided above, not less than 120 calendar days before the date of the company's proxy statement released to stockholders in connection with the previous year's annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event the Company holds its 2020 annual meeting more than 30 days before or after the one year anniversary date of this Meeting, then the deadline shall be a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials. Thus, in order to be eligible for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statements and form of proxy for the Company’s 2020 annual meeting, stockholder proposals must be received by September 27, 2019, unless the date of the 2020 annual meeting is changed by more than 30 days from the date of this Meeting, in which case the deadline for submission of stockholder proposals shall be a reasonable time before the Company begins to print and send its proxy materials.

Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight

Hyonmyong Cho, an independent director, currently serves as the Chairman of the Board and Frederick Vandenberg serves as our President and Chief Executive Officer. The Board of Directors is responsible for the risk oversight of the Company which has little to no effect on the Board of Director’s leadership structure.

Orientation and Continuing Education

The Board of Directors provides an overview of the Company’s business activities, systems and business plan to all new directors. New director candidates have free access to any of the Company’s records, employees or senior management in order to conduct their own due diligence and will be briefed on the strategic plans, short, medium and long term corporate objectives, business risks and mitigation strategies, corporate governance guidelines and existing policies of the Company. The directors are encouraged to update their skills and knowledge by taking courses and attending professional seminars.

Ethical Business Conduct

The Board of Directors believes good corporate governance is an integral component to the success of the Company and to meet responsibilities to stockholders. Generally, the Board of Directors has found that the fiduciary duties placed on individual directors by the Company’s governing corporate legislation and the common law and the restrictions placed by applicable corporate legislation on an individual director’s participation in decisions of the Board of Directors in which the director has an interest have been sufficient to ensure that the Board of Directors operates independently of management and in the best interests of the Company.

The Board of Directors is also responsible for applying governance principles and practices, and tracking development in corporate governance, and adapting “best practices” to suit the needs of the Company. Certain of the directors of the Company may also be directors and officers of other companies, and conflicts of interest may arise between their duties. Such conflicts must be disclosed in accordance with, and are subject to such other procedures and remedies as applicable under Nevada law.

Assessments

The Board of Directors has not implemented a process for assessing its effectiveness. As a result of the Company’s small size and the Company’s stage of development, the Board of Directors considers a formal assessment process to be inappropriate at this time. The Board of Directors plans to continue evaluating its own effectiveness on an ad hoc basis.

The Board of Directors does not formally assess the performance or contribution of individual Board members or committee members.

Stockholder Communication with the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors provides a process for stockholders to send communications to the Board of Directors. Stockholders desiring to communicate with the Board of Directors on matters other than director nominations should submit their communication in writing to Frederick Vandenberg, Corporate Secretary, Destiny Media Technologies Inc., 1110 - 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC V6C 3E8 and identify themselves as a stockholder. The Corporate Secretary will forward all such communication to the Chairperson of the Board for a determination as to how to proceed.

Under Rule 13d-3 of the Exchange Act, a beneficial owner of a security includes any person who, directly or indirectly, through any contract, arrangement, understanding, relationship, or otherwise has or shares: (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote, or to direct the voting of shares; and (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of shares. Certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire the shares (for example, upon exercise of an option) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares outstanding is deemed to include the amount of such shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of these acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in this table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual ownership or voting power with respect to the number of shares of common stock actually outstanding on January 24, 2019. As of January 24, 2019, there were 55,013,874 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding.

  (3)

Consists of 461,105 shares held by Mr. Graber, 14,900 shares held by Mr. Graber’s spouse, and 187,500 shares that may be acquired upon the exercise of stock options held by Mr. Graber within 60 days of As of January 24, 2019.
