Concerning Corporate Action Authorized by Written Consent of Stockholders

___________________________________________________________________

 

No vote or other action of our stockholders is required in connection

with this Information Statement. We are not asking you for a proxy,

and you are requested not to send us a proxy.

INTRODUCTION

 

This Information Statement is being furnished to the stockholders of Grow Capital, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), to advise them of the corporate action described herein, which has been authorized by the written consent of stockholders holding a majority of the shares entitled to vote on such action (“Voting Stock”), in accordance with the requirements of the Nevada Revised Statutes.

 

This Information Statement will first be mailed to stockholders on or about June 9, 2020, and is being furnished for informational purposes only.

 

Our board of directors (the “Board”) has determined that the close of business on June 8, 2020, was the record date  for the stockholders entitled to notice of the following actions:

 

·A one for twenty reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock with all fractional shares resulting therefrom being rounded up to the next whole number, with payment in cash to stockholders who are left with no more than a fractional share on the basis of $0.05 per share of existing Common Stock, and without affecting the number of the Company’s authorized shares (the “Reverse Stock Split”); and  

·The filing of an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, to effect the Reverse Stock Split.  A copy of the amendment is attached as Appendix A to this Information Statement. 

On May 13, 2020, the Board approved the Reverse Stock Split and recommended it to our stockholders, and effective May 18, 2020, stockholders, consisting solely of management and directors of the Company holding a majority of the outstanding shares of Voting Stock, approved the Reverse Stock Split.

 

Under Section 78.320 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, any action required or permitted by the Nevada Revised Statutes to be taken at a meeting of stockholders of a Nevada corporation may be taken without a meeting, and without prior notice, if consents in writing setting forth the action so taken are signed by stockholders holding at least a majority of the voting power. No stockholder meeting was required, and no other stockholder approval is required.

 


1


Stockholders holding 135,693,877 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 52.84% of the shares of Voting Stock, executed and delivered to us a written consent authorizing and approving the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who signed the written consent were James Olson (Chairman), Terry Kennedy (Chief Executive Officer and President), Jonathan Bonnette (Director, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Executive Officer of our operating subsidiary Bombshell Technologies, Inc.), Carl Sanko (Director and Secretary), Trevor Hall (Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer), Joel Bonnette (Chief Technology Officer of our operating subsidiary Bombshell Technologies, Inc.), and certain limited liability companies beneficially owned by such stockholders or with joint tenants of such stockholders.

 

Accordingly, the Reverse Stock Split has been approved by the holders of a majority of our outstanding shares of Voting Stock, and no further vote or further action of our stockholders is required to approve this action. You are being provided with notice of the approval of the Reverse Stock Split by less than unanimous written consent of our stockholders. However, under Rule 14c-2 under the Exchange Act, the Reverse Stock Split will not be effective until twenty days after this Information Statement has first been sent to stockholders and any other applicable regulatory requirements have been met.

 

The Company will pay for preparing and distributing this Information Statement.

 

On May 13, 2020, the Board authorized management to deliver this Information Statement.

Interest of Certain Persons In or Opposition to Matters to be Acted Upon

 

Except in their capacity as stockholders (which interest does not differ from that of the other Common Stockholders), none of our officers, directors, or any of their respective affiliates has any interest in the Reverse Stock Split.

 

ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN

 

This Information Statement contains a brief summary of the material aspects of the action approved by the Board and the stockholders.

 

The Reverse Stock Split will become effective once we file an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, as amended, with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada and it becomes effective as of the effective date set forth in the Amendment.  Such filing can become effective no earlier than twenty (20) calendar days after the mailing of this information statement.

 

In addition to the foregoing, we must first notify Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) of the intended Reverse Stock Split by filing an Issuer Company Related Action Notification Form no later than ten (10) days prior to the anticipated record date of such action and obtain the requisite approval from FINRA to effect the reverse stock split in the market on the OTCQB. 

 

We currently expect to file the Amendment with an effective date of no earlier than June 30, 2020.

 

 

REVERSE STOCK SPLIT

 

The Board and our stockholders have approved the Amendment to effect the Reverse Stock Split. The Amendment will become effective twenty days after the mailing of this Information Statement and when all other applicable regulatory requirements have been met.

  

General Background

 

As of the Record Date, pursuant to our articles of incorporation as amended to date, we had the authority to issue 500,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which 256,787,388 shares were issued and outstanding.  We also had authority to issue 50,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock of which no shares have been issued aor are outstanding.

 

Principal Motivation for the Reverse Stock Split

 

The Board believes it is in the best interests of the Company and the stockholders to implement the Reverse Stock Split (i) in order to reduce the number of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock thereby increasing the number of shares of common stock available for issuance, (ii) the Board believes it is likely to increase the market price for the Common Stock as fewer shares will be outstanding, and (iii) the expected increased market price will improve the marketability and liquidity of the common stock and will encourage interest and trading in the common stock.

 

Immediately following the completion of the Reverse Stock Split, the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding would be reduced proportionately based on the reverse stock split ratio of 1-for-20. A reverse stock split by a publicly traded company reduces the number of shares outstanding, but leaves the market capitalization of the company the same, which generally results in an increase in the price per share of the company’s stock. Put another way, after a reverse stock split, the enterprise value of the company is spread over fewer shares and so the per share price of the stock will typically be higher.

 

Because of the trading volatility often associated with low-priced stocks, many brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers. Some of those policies and practices may function to make the processing of trades in low-priced stocks economically unattractive to brokers. Additionally, because brokers’ commissions on low-priced stocks generally represent a higher percentage of the stock


5


price than commissions on higher-priced stocks, the current average price per share of the common stock can result in individual stockholders paying transaction costs representing a higher percentage of their total share value than would be the case if the share price were substantially higher. The Board believes the increase from the Reverse Stock Split will position us better if our business continues to increase as we expect.  

 

It should be noted that the liquidity of the common stock may be adversely affected by the Reverse Stock Split given the reduced number of shares that would be outstanding after the Reverse Stock Split. The Board anticipates, however, that the expected higher market price will reduce, to some extent, the negative effects on the liquidity and marketability of the common stock inherent in some of the policies and practices of institutional investors and brokerage houses described above.

 

The Reverse Stock Split would decrease the number of outstanding shares but not the number of authorized shares.  By effecting the Reverse Stock Split, we will have a substantial number of shares of common stock available for issuance, giving us greater flexibility in considering and planning for future corporate needs and potential future acquisitions.

 

The Reverse Stock Split is not being made in connection with any going-private transaction, nor does the Board or management currently have any intention to effectuate the privatization of the Company. There can be no assurance that the Reverse Stock Split will result in the benefits described above. The Company cannot assure you that the Reverse Stock Split will not further adversely impact the market price of the Common Stock.

 

Implementation and Effects of the Reverse Stock Split

 

The Reverse Stock Split would have the following effects:

 

·the number of shares of the Common Stock owned by each stockholder will automatically be reduced proportionately based on the reverse stock split ratio of 1-for-20; and 

·the number of shares of the Common Stock issued and outstanding will be reduced proportionately. 

The following table summarizes the estimated effects of the Reverse Stock Split upon the Company’s outstanding common stock, assuming that (i) there are 256,787,388 shares of common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, and (ii) our authorized common stock is not reduced.

Potential Effects of Proposed Reverse Stock Split

 

At this time, the Company has no plans to issue such additional shares of its capital stock, other than as compensation and incentives to employees and directors under the Company’s existing stock incentive plans and other arrangements that may be undertaken.

 

The future issuance of such authorized shares may have the effect of diluting the Company’s earnings per share and book value per share, as well as the stock ownership and voting rights of the current Stockholders. The effective increase in the number of authorized but unissued shares of the Common Stock may be construed as having an anti-


6


takeover effect by permitting the issuance of shares to purchasers who might oppose a hostile takeover bid or oppose any efforts to amend or repeal certain provisions of the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or By-laws.

 

Fractional Shares

 

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. In lieu of issuing fractional shares, stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares because they hold a number of shares not evenly divisible by the ratio of the Reverse Stock Split will automatically be entitled to receive an additional fraction of a share of Common Stock to round up to the next whole share. Stockholders who own fewer than 20 shares and are therefore left with no more than a fractional share will be paid cash on the basis of $0.05 per share of existing Common Stock that they own on the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split. The amount of cash each holder of fractional Common Stock will receive will be calculated by multiplying the number of shares of existing Common Stock that the stockholder owns on the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split times $0.05. As of May 15, 2020, the Company has identified 19 non-objecting beneficial owners that currently hold fewer than 20 shares.

 

Other Effects on Issued and Outstanding Shares

 

The rights and preferences of the issued and outstanding shares of the Common Stock will remain the same after the Reverse Stock Split. Each share of Common Stock issued pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split will be fully paid and non-assessable. The reverse stock split will not affect the Company continuing to be subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act. The Reverse Stock Split is not intended as, and will not have the effect of, a “going private transaction” as described by Rule 13e-3 under the Exchange Act.

 

In addition, the Reverse Stock Split would result in some stockholders owning “odd-lots” of fewer than 100 shares of the Common Stock. Brokerage commissions and other costs of transactions in odd-lots are generally higher than the costs of transactions in “round-lots” of even multiples of 100 shares.

 

After the Reverse Stock Split, the post-split market price of our Common Stock may be less than the pre-split price multiplied by the 1-for-20 stock split ratio. In addition, a reduction in number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding may impair the liquidity for our Common Stock, which may reduce the value of our Common Stock.

 

CUSIP Number

 

As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Common Stock will receive a new CUSIP number, which is the number used to identify the Company’s equity securities, and stock certificates with the older CUSIP number will need to be exchanged for stock certificates with the new CUSIP number. The Common Stock will continue to be quoted on the OTC Markets, subject to compliance with OTC Marketplace listing standards.

 

No Dissenters’ Rights

 

Under the Nevada Revised Statutes, the stockholders are not entitled to dissenters’ rights with respect to the Reverse Stock Split, and the Company will not independently provide stockholders with any such right.

 

Beneficial Holders of Common Stock

 

Upon the implementation of the Reverse Stock Split, we intend to treat shares held by stockholders through a bank, broker or other nominee in the same manner as registered stockholders whose shares are registered in their names. Banks, brokers or other nominees will be instructed to effect the Reverse Stock Split for their beneficial holders holding our Common Stock in “street name.” However, these banks, brokers or other nominees may have different procedures than registered stockholders for processing the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who hold shares of our Common Stock with a bank, broker or other nominee and who have any questions in this regard are encouraged to contact their banks, brokers or other nominees.

Registered “Book-Entry” Holders of Common Stock

 

Certain of the registered holders of our Common Stock may hold some or all of their shares electronically in book-entry form with our transfer agent, Colonial Stock Transfer Co., Inc. These stockholders do not have stock certificates evidencing their ownership of our Common Stock. They are, however, provided with statements reflecting the number of shares registered in their accounts. Stockholders who hold shares electronically in book-entry form with our transfer agent will not need to take action to receive evidence of their shares of post- Reverse Stock Split of Common Stock.

 

Holders of Certificated Shares of Common Stock

 

Stockholders holding shares of our Common Stock in certificated form will be sent a transmittal letter by our transfer agent after the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split. The letter of transmittal will contain instructions on how a stockholder should surrender his, her or its certificate(s) representing shares of our Common Stock (the “Old Certificates”) to our transfer agent in exchange for certificates representing the appropriate number of shares of post-Reverse Stock Split Common Stock (the “New Certificates”). No New Certificates will be issued to a stockholder until such stockholder has surrendered all Old Certificates, together with a properly completed and executed letter of transmittal, to our transfer agent. No stockholder will be required to pay a transfer or other fee to exchange his, her or its Old Certificates. Stockholders will then receive a New Certificate(s) representing the number of shares of our Common Stock to which they are entitled as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Any Old Certificates submitted for exchange, whether because of a sale, transfer or other disposition of stock, will automatically be exchanged for New Certificates. If an Old Certificate has a restrictive legend on its reverse side, the New Certificate will be issued with the same restrictive legend on its reverse side. 

 

Regardless of how stockholders hold our Common Stock (i.e., in book-entry or certificated form), stockholders will not have to pay any service charges to us or our transfer agent in connection with the Reverse Stock Split.

 

Holders of Fewer than 20 Shares of Common Stock

 

For those stockholders who will receive cash in lieu of fractional share, the Company will deposit with the its transfer agent, as soon as practicable prior to the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split, cash in an amount equal to the value of the estimated aggregate number of fractional shares that will result from the Reverse Stock Split. The Company’s stockholder list shows that some of the outstanding Common Stock is registered in the names of clearing agencies and broker nominees.

 

Because the Company does not know the numbers of shares held by each beneficial owner for whom the clearing agencies and broker nominees are record holders, it cannot predict with certainty the number of fractional shares that will result from the Reverse Stock Split or the total amount the transfer agent will be required to pay for fractional share interests.  

 

STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD NOT DESTROY ANY STOCK CERTIFICATE(S) AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY STOCK CERTIFICATE(S) UNTIL REQUESTED TO DO SO.

 

Accounting Matters

 

The proposed amendment to our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, will not affect the par value of our Common Stock. As a result, at the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, the stated capital on our balance sheet attributable to our Common Stock will be reduced in the same proportion as the Reverse Stock Split, and the additional paid-in capital account will be credited with the amount by which the stated capital is reduced. The per share net income or loss and net book value of our Common Stock will be reclassified for prior periods to conform to the post-Reverse Stock Split presentation.

 

Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Reverse Stock Split

 

The following is a summary of certain material United States federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split. It does not purport to be a complete discussion of all of the possible United States federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split and is included for general information only. Further, it does not address any


8


state, local or foreign income or other tax consequences. This discussion does not address the tax consequences to holders that are subject to special tax rules, such as banks, insurance companies, regulated investment companies, personal holding companies, foreign entities, nonresident alien individuals, broker-dealers and tax-exempt entities. The discussion is based on the provisions of the United States federal income tax law as of the date hereof, which is subject to change retroactively as well as prospectively. This summary also assumes that the shares of Common Stock held by our stockholders before the Reverse Stock Split were, and the shares of Common Stock held after the Reverse Stock Split will be, held as “capital assets,” as defined in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (i.e., generally, property held for investment). The tax treatment of a stockholder may vary depending upon the particular facts and circumstances of such stockholder.
