SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

PROXY STATEMENT

 

This proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) is being sent to the holders of shares of voting stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) in connection with the solicitation of proxies by our Board of Directors (the “Board”) for use at a Special Meeting of Stockholders of the Company which will be held at 11:00 a.m. local time on May 6, 2020 at Club 75 located at 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10019 (the “Special Meeting”). The Notice of Special Meeting and this Proxy Statement and form of proxy are first being mailed on or about March 30, 2020 to our stockholders of record entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

 

Who is entitled to vote at the Special Meeting?

 

The Board has fixed the close of business on March 26, 2020 as the record date (the “Record Date”) for a determination of the stockholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting. As of the Record Date, there were (i) _____________ shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”) of the Company, (ii) _____________ shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series D Preferred Stock”) of the Company, (iii) _____________ shares of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series E Preferred Stock”) of the Company, and (iv) _____________ shares of Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series F Preferred Stock,” and together with the Series D Preferred Stock and Series E Preferred Stock, the “Preferred Stock”) of the Company, outstanding. Each share of the Company’s Common Stock represents one vote that may be voted on each matter that may come before the Special Meeting. The holders of Preferred Stock are entitled to vote on all matters submitted to stockholders of the Company and are entitled to the number of votes for each share of Preferred Stock owned as of the Record Date equal to the number of shares of Common Stock such shares of Preferred Stock are convertible into at such time, subject to the limitation on the beneficial ownership set forth in the Certificates of Designation of Preferred Stock of 4.99% or 9.99%, to the extent the 4.99% limitation has been waived by the holder.

 

What matters will be voted on at the Special Meeting?

 

The three proposals that are scheduled to be considered and voted on at the Special Meeting are as follows:

 

1. Approve an increase from 31,250,000 to 250,000,000 shares in the number of shares of Common Stock the Company is authorized to issue (the “Authorized Share Increase”), and approve a corresponding amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect the Authorized Share Increase;

 

2. Approve an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which the Company will merge with and into Recruiter.com Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, resulting in reincorporation from the State of Delaware to the State of Nevada (the “Reincorporation”); and

 

3. Approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting to a later date or time, if necessary, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies if, based upon the tabulated vote at the time of the Special Meeting, there are not sufficient votes to approve the Authorized Share Reduction and/or Reincorporation (the “Adjournment”).

 

What are the Board’s voting recommendations?

 

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote “FOR” the Authorized Share Increase, “FOR” the Reincorporation and “FOR” the Adjournment.

 

1

 

 

Why does the Company need to hold this vote?

 

The Company is required to increase the number of shares of Common Stock it is authorized to issue to comply with the applicable reserve requirements contained in the Amended and Restated Certificates of Designation of the Preferred Stock, filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on March 29, 2019, and the warrants to purchase Common Stock of the Company at the exercise price of $1.60 per share, issued in March, May and June of 2019 (the “2019 Warrants”). The sole purpose of the Reincorporation is to reduce the Company’s future annual franchise taxes. If the Authorized Share Increase is effected without effecting the Reincorporation, we will be required to pay approximately $200,000 annually in future Delaware franchise taxes.

 

What is the difference between holding shares as a record holder and as a beneficial owner?

 

If your shares are registered in your name with the Company’s transfer agent, Equity Stock Transfer, you are the “record holder” of those shares. If you are a record holder, these proxy materials have been provided directly to you by the Company.

 

If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account, a bank or other holder of record, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of those shares held in “street name.” If your shares are held in street name, these proxy materials have been forwarded to you by that organization. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to instruct this organization on how to vote your shares.

 

Who may attend the Special Meeting?

 

Record holders and beneficial owners may attend the Special Meeting. If your shares are held in street name, you will need to bring a copy of a brokerage statement or other documentation reflecting your stock ownership as of the Record Date. Please see below for instructions on how to vote at the Special Meeting if your shares are held in street name.

 

How do I vote?

 

If you are a stockholder of record, you may:

 

  1. Vote by Internet. The website address for Internet voting is on your proxy card.
  2. Vote by mail. Mark, date, sign and mail promptly the enclosed proxy card.
  3. Vote by fax. Mark, sign, and date this proxy card and promptly return it by fax: (646) 201-9006 ATTN: Shareholder Services.
  4. Vote in person. Attend and vote at the Special Meeting.

 

If you vote by Internet or fax, please DO NOT mail your proxy card.

 

If you are a beneficial owner, you must follow the voting procedures of your nominee included with your proxy materials. If your shares are held by a nominee and you intend to vote at the Special Meeting, please bring with you evidence of your ownership as of the record date (such as a letter from your nominee confirming your ownership or a bank or brokerage firm account statement) and a legal proxy from your nominee authorizing you to vote your shares.

 

What constitutes a quorum?

 

To carry on the business of the Special Meeting, we must have a quorum. A quorum is present when one-third of the voting power of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Company, as of the Record Date, are represented in person or by proxy. However, because the Company must obtain a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote to approve each of the Authorized Share Increase and the Reincorporation, we need to exceed the quorum requirement. Shares owned by the Company are not considered outstanding or considered to be present at the Special Meeting. Broker non-votes and abstentions are counted as present for the purpose of determining the existence of a quorum. 

 

2

 

 

What happens if the Company is unable to obtain a quorum?

 

If a quorum is not present to transact business at the Special Meeting or if we do not receive sufficient votes in favor of the proposals by the date of the Special Meeting, the persons named as proxies may propose one or more adjournments of the Special Meeting to permit solicitation of proxies.

 

Which proposals are considered “Routine” or “Non-Routine”?

 

Proposals 1, 2 and 3 are routine proposals.

 

What is a “broker non-vote”?

 

If your shares are held in street name, you must instruct the organization which holds your shares how to vote your shares. If you do not provide voting instructions, your shares will not be voted on any non-routine proposal. This vote is called a “broker non-vote.” Broker non-votes do not count as a vote “FOR” or “AGAINST” any of the proposals submitted to a vote at the Special Meeting.

 

If you are a stockholder of record, and you sign and return a proxy card without giving specific voting instructions, the proxy holders will vote your shares in the manner recommended by the Board on all matters presented in this Proxy Statement and as the proxy holders may determine in their discretion with respect to any other matters properly presented for a vote at the Special Meeting. If your shares are held in street name and you do not provide specific voting instructions to the organization that holds your shares, the organization may generally vote at its discretion on routine matters, but not on non-routine matters. If you sign your proxy card but do not provide instructions on how your broker should vote, your broker will vote your shares as recommended by the Board on any non-routine matter.

 

How many votes are needed for each proposal to pass?

 

Proposals   Vote Required  
(1) Approve the Authorized Share Increase and a corresponding amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Authorized Share Increase;   Majority of (i) outstanding shares entitled to vote; and (ii) majority of outstanding shares of Common Stock (voting as a separate class)  
(2) Approve an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to effect the Reincorporation in Nevada; and   Majority of outstanding shares entitled to vote  
(3) Approve the Adjournment.   Majority of the voting power present  

 

What constitutes outstanding shares entitled to vote?

 

Approval of Proposal 1 and Proposal 2 requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote. At the close of business on the Record Date, there were _____________ shares outstanding and entitled to vote, including: (i) _____________ shares of Common Stock and (ii) _____________ shares of Common Stock the shares of Preferred Stock outstanding as of the Record Date were convertible into as of such date, after giving effect to the limitation on the beneficial ownership set forth in the relevant Certificates of Designation of Preferred Stock of 4.99% or 9.99%, to the extent the 4.99% limitation has been waived by the holder.

What are the voting procedures?

 

You may vote in favor of each proposal or against each proposal, or in favor of some proposals and against others, or you may abstain from voting on any of these proposals. You should specify your respective choices on the accompanying proxy card or your voting instruction form.

 

Is my proxy revocable?

 

You may revoke your proxy and reclaim your right to vote up to and including the day of the Special Meeting by giving written notice to the Corporate Secretary of the Company, by delivering a proxy card dated after the date of the proxy or by voting in person at the Special Meeting. All written notices of revocation and other communications with respect to revocations of proxies should be addressed to: EQUITY STOCK TRANSFER, 237 W 37TH ST, Suite 602, New York, NY 10018, ATTN: Shareholder Services.

 

Who is paying for the expenses involved in preparing and mailing this proxy statement?

 

All of the expenses involved in preparing, assembling and mailing these proxy materials and all costs of soliciting proxies will be paid by the Company. In addition to the solicitation by mail, proxies may be solicited by the Company’s officers and regular employees by telephone or in person. Such persons will receive no compensation for their services other than their regular salaries. Arrangements will also be made with brokerage houses and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries to forward solicitation materials to the beneficial owners of the shares held of record by such persons, and we may reimburse such persons for reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by them in so doing. We may hire an independent proxy solicitation firm.

 

Could other matters be decided at the Special Meeting?

 

Other than the Authorized Share Increase proposal, the Reincorporation proposal and the Adjournment proposal, no other matters will be presented for action by the stockholders at the Special Meeting.

 

4

 

 

What is “householding” and how does it affect me?

 

Record holders who have the same address and last name will receive only one copy of their proxy materials, unless we are notified that one or more of these record holders wishes to continue receiving individual copies. This procedure will reduce the Company’s printing costs and postage fees. Stockholders who participate in householding will continue to receive separate proxy cards.

 

If you are eligible for householding, but you and other record holders with whom you share an address, receive multiple copies of these proxy materials, or if you hold the Company’s Common Stock in more than one account, and in either case you wish to receive only a single copy of each of these documents for your household, please contact the Company’s Corporate Secretary at: Recruiter.com Group, Inc., 100 Waugh Dr. Suite 300, Houston, Texas 77007, Attention: Corporate Secretary.

 

If you participate in householding and wish to receive a separate copy of these proxy materials, or if you do not wish to continue to participate in householding and prefer to receive separate copies of these documents in the future, please contact the Company’s Corporate Secretary as indicated above. Beneficial owners can request information about householding from their brokers, banks or other holders of record.

 

Do I have dissenters’ (appraisal) rights?

 

Appraisal rights are not available to the Company’s stockholders with any of the proposals brought before the Special Meeting.

 

Interest of Officers and Directors in Matters to Be Acted Upon

 

None of the officers or directors have any interest in any of the matters to be acted upon at the Special Meeting.

 

The Board Recommends that stockholders Vote “FOR” Proposals 1, 2 and 3.

 

5

 

 

PROPOSAL 1. APPROVAL OF THE AUTHORIZED SHARE INCREASE

 

The Board is asking stockholders to approve the Authorized Share Increase from 31,250,000 to 250,000,000 shares and a corresponding amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Authorized Share Increase (the “Amendment”).

 

Purpose of the Authorized Share Increase

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Certificates of Designation of Preferred Stock and the 2019 Warrants, the Company is required to reserve and maintain at any time the reserve of shares of Common Stock in the amount equal to 200% of the number of shares issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock or exercise of the 2019 Warrants, as applicable. The Company is currently not in compliance with these reserve requirements and is seeking waivers of the non-compliance and the resulting cash penalties estimated to total approximately $6 million. The Company needs to implement the Authorized Share Increase in order to regain compliance with these reserve requirements and avoid future penalties. Based on ___________ shares of Preferred Stock and __________ 2019 Warrants outstanding as of the Record Date, the Company needs to increase the number of shares of Common Stock it is authorized to issue to at least ______________ shares.

 

Additionally, as stated in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2019, we do not have adequate working capital, and our available cash is not sufficient, to fund our operations during the next 12 months. Our ability to continue to operate and grow our business is dependent upon obtaining new financing. The cost of any new financing may be prohibitive. If we are unable to arrange new financing, we will not have sufficient cash to support our operations and will be forced to delay, scale back, or eliminate some or all of its development activities or perhaps cease operations. We anticipate that we will need approximately $5,518,000 to support our operations and meet our obligations over the next 12 months, without considering the Company’s monthly gross profit and without taking into account the timing of collection of receivables or payment of payables. To date, private equity offerings have been our primary source of liquidity and we expect to fund future operations through additional private or public equity offerings. If the Certificate of Incorporation is not amended to effect the Authorized Share Increase, we will be severely restricted in our ability to issue equity securities. Because of the reserve requirements applicable to the Company, we cannot raise capital without violating the rights of investors entitled to the reserve.

 

The additional shares of Common Stock may be issued from time to time as our Board may determine without further action by the stockholders, except as required pursuant to the Certificate of Designation of Series D Preferred Stock and the related Securities Purchase Agreement. Other than the holders of our Series D Preferred Stock, none of our stockholders currently possess, nor will upon the adoption of the Amendment acquire, preemptive rights which would entitle such persons, as a matter of right, to subscribe for the purchase of any of our securities.

 

Effects of the Authorized Share Increase

 

If the Authorized Share Increase is effected, the number of authorized shares of Common Stock will be increased from 31,250,000 to 250,000,000 shares. The total number of authorized shares of the Company will be 260,000,000, consisting of 250,000,000 authorized shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 authorized shares of Preferred Stock. The Amendment will not change the par value of the shares of the Common Stock, affect the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding or the rights or privileges of holders of shares of the Common Stock outstanding, or have any effect on any outstanding securities, including outstanding equity awards that are exercisable, convertible or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock.

 

A form of the Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation that would be filed with the Delaware Secretary of State to effect the Authorized Share Increase is set forth in Annex A (the “Certificate of Amendment”). If the stockholders approve the Authorized Share Increase and the Amendment, the Company intends to file the Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware as soon as practicable following the Special Meeting, and the Certificate of Amendment will be effective upon such filing. However, if at any time prior to the effectiveness of the filing of the Certificate of Amendment with the Delaware Secretary of State, the Board determines that it would not be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to effect the Authorized Share Increase, in accordance with Delaware law and notwithstanding the approval of the Authorized Share Increase and the Amendment by the stockholders, the Board may abandon the Authorized Share Increase and the Amendment without further action by the stockholders.

 

6

 

 

If the stockholders approve the Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which we will reincorporate from the State of Delaware to the State of Nevada (Proposal 2) and if the Reincorporation is implemented, the Authorized Share Increase described in this Proposal 1 will not be implemented regardless of its approval by the stockholders.

 

Plans for the Additional Authorised Shares of Common Stock

 

Other than potential future private or public equity offerings, we presently have no specific plans, nor have we entered into any agreements, arrangements or understandings with respect to the additional shares of authorized Common Stock that will become available for issuance as a result of the Authorized Share Increase.

 

No Appraisal Rights

 

Under the Delaware General Corporation Law, our stockholders are not entitled to dissenter’s rights or appraisal rights with respect to the Authorized Share Increase described in this Proposal 1 and we will not independently provide our stockholders with any such rights.

 

Interest of Certain Persons in Matters to be Acted Upon

 

No officer or director has any substantial interest, direct or indirect, by security holdings or otherwise, in the Authorized Share Increase that is not shared by all of our other stockholders.

 

Vote Required

 

Under Delaware law, the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at the Special Meeting is required to adopt and approve the amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Authorized Share Increase. In addition, the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote (voting as a separate class) is required. An abstention with respect to the Authorized Share Increase proposal will have the same effect as a vote “Against” the proposal.

 

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT THE STOCKHOLDERS VOTE “FOR” THIS PROPOSAL 1.

 

7

 

 

PROPOSAL 2. APPROVAL OF THE REINCORPORATION

 

The Board has approved, subject to stockholder approval, and is asking stockholders to approve, an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which the Company merge with and into Recruiter.com Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, resulting in reincorporation from the State of Delaware to the State of Nevada (the “Reincorporation”). The Agreement and Plan of Merger is attached hereto as Annex B and should be read in its entirety.

 

The Reincorporation will become effective upon the filing of the requisite merger documents in Nevada and Delaware, which filings are expected to occur as promptly as practicable after the requisite stockholder approval is obtained. A copy of the proposed Articles of Incorporation and bylaws are attached hereto as Annex C and Annex D, respectively.

 

Purpose of the Reincorporation

 

The sole purpose of the Reincorporation is to reduce the Company’s future tax burden, in particular franchise taxes. In Delaware, the amount of such tax payments is determined based, in part, on the total number of shares of stock the Company is authorized to issue and the number of shares of stock outstanding. The Company’s current capital structure requires it to maintain a large number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, which results in higher franchise taxes in Delaware. If the Authorized Share Increase set forth in Proposal 1 of this proxy statement is implemented, assuming no change in our assets or shares outstanding, we estimate that we will be required to pay approximately $200,000 annually in future Delaware franchise taxes. This amount is prohibitive and not in the interests of the Company’s stockholders. Nevada does not have a franchise tax and the annual fees are not material. Thus effecting the Reincorporation will allow the Company to maintain its capital structure without depleting its cash resources. Therefore, the Board believes that it is in the best interest for the Company to reincorporate in the State of Nevada from our present domicile of Delaware. See “Significant Differences between the Corporate Laws of Delaware and Nevada.”

 

Effects of the Reincorporation

 

Implementing the Reincorporation will have, among other things, the following effects:

 

each share of the Company’s Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Reincorporation will be converted into the right to receive one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada), and each outstanding share of common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) held by the Company shall be retired and canceled and shall resume the status of authorized and unissued common stock;

 

each share of the Company’s Preferred Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Reincorporation will be converted into the right to receive one share of the corresponding series of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada), and each outstanding share of preferred stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) held by the Company shall be retired and canceled and shall resume the status of authorized and unissued common stock;

 

each outstanding option to purchase Common Stock will automatically be assumed by Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) and will represent an option or right to acquire shares of common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) on the basis of one share of the Company’s Common Stock for each one share of common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) and the exercise price will remain unchanged, in each case subject to customary adjustments. Each outstanding warrant to purchase Common Stock will similarly automatically be assumed and converted into a warrant to purchase shares of common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada).

 

each certificate representing issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock will represent the same number of shares of common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada);

 

the persons presently serving as our executive officers and directors will continue to serve in such respective capacity following the effective time of the Reincorporation;

 

Articles of Incorporation will be adopted under the laws of the State of Nevada in the form attached hereto as Annex C, pursuant to which our authorized Common Stock will increase to 250,000,000 shares, and we will continue to have 10,000,000 shares of authorized Preferred Stock; and

 

new Bylaws will be adopted under the laws of the State of Nevada in the form attached hereto as Annex D.

 

8

 

 

YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO EXCHANGE YOUR EXISTING STOCK CERTIFICATES FOR STOCK CERTIFICATES OF RECRUITER.COM GROUP, INC. (NEVADA) IN CONNECTION WITH THE REINCORPORATION. HOWEVER, YOU MAY EXCHANGE YOUR STOCK CERTIFICATES IF YOU SO CHOOSE.

 

Our Common Stock is currently quoted on the OTCQB. We believe that following the effective date of the Reincorporation, our Common Stock will also be quoted on the OTCQB. However, there is no assurance that we will continue to meet the continued eligibility requirements under the OTCQB standards.

 

The Reincorporation will not result in any change in the corporate name, business, management, fiscal year, accounting, location of the principal executive offices, assets or liabilities of our Company.

 

Stockholders should note that approval of the Reincorporation described in this Proposal 2 would also constitute approval of the assumption by Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) of the Company’s options and other rights to purchase capital stock. Stockholder approval would also constitute approval of the assumption by Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) of the Company’s 2017 Equity Incentive Plan. The Company’s other employee benefit arrangements would also be continued by Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) upon the terms and subject to the conditions in effect prior to the effective time of the Reincorporation. Prior to the effective time of the Reincorporation, the Company will seek to obtain any required consents to the Reincorporation from any third parties with whom it has material contractual arrangements. Assuming such consents are obtained, the Company’s rights and obligations under such material contractual arrangements will be assumed by Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada).

 

The Board has the authority to abandon the merger and the Reincorporation even after approval by the stockholders.

 

Significant Differences between the Corporate Laws of Delaware and Nevada

 

The Company is incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. If the Reincorporation is consummated, we will reincorporate under the laws of the State of Nevada and our stockholders, whose rights currently are governed by Delaware law and our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws created pursuant to Delaware law, will be governed by Delaware law and Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws which have been created under Nevada law.

 

Although the Delaware and Nevada corporate statutes are similar, certain differences exist. Set forth below is the summary of the most significant differences between the two. This summary is not intended to be complete, and stockholders are urged to refer to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and Chapters 78 and 92A of the Nevada Revised Statutes to understand how these laws apply to us.

 

Amendments to Charter or Bylaws. In general, both Delaware law and Nevada law require the approval of the holders of a majority of all outstanding shares entitled to vote to approve proposed amendments to certificate/articles of incorporation. Both Delaware law and Nevada law also provide that in addition to the vote above, the vote of a majority of the outstanding shares of a class may be required to amend the Certificate of Incorporation or articles of incorporation. Neither state requires stockholder approval for the board of directors of a corporation to fix the voting powers, designation, preferences, limitations, restrictions and rights of a class of stock provided that the corporation’s organizational documents grant such power to its board of directors. Both Nevada law and Delaware law permit, in general, the number of authorized shares of any such class of stock to be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares then outstanding) by the board of directors unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or resolution adopted pursuant to the Certificate of Incorporation, respectively. However, the Nevada law allows the board of directors, without stockholder approval, to increase or decrease the number of authorized shares of capital stock if the number of outstanding shares is proportionately increased or decreased. Delaware law does not have a similar provision. In addition, Nevada law permits a Nevada corporation to amend the designation of any class or series, the number of the class or series and the voting powers, designations, preferences, limitations, restrictions and relative rights of any class or series of preferred stock without the approval of common stockholders and holds of other classes or series of outstanding preferred stock junior to the ones being amended. Delaware law requires a majority of outstanding shares entitled to vote.

 

Removal of Directors. Under the Delaware law, directors of a corporation without a classified board may be removed with or without cause by the holders of a majority of shares then entitled to vote in an election of directors. Under Nevada law, any one or all of the directors of a corporation may be removed by the holders of not less than two-thirds of the voting power of the issued and outstanding stock. Nevada law does not distinguish between removal of directors with and without cause and removal of directors when the board of directors is divided into classes. Accordingly, removal is harder in Nevada when the board is not classified. However, if the board of directors is classified, Delaware law provides that a director can be removed only for cause by the holders of a majority of the shares then entitled to vote in an election of directors unless the Certificate of Incorporation provides otherwise.

 

9

 

 

Special Meetings of Stockholders. Nevada law provides that the entire board of directors, any two directors or the president may call a special meeting of stockholders, unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation or bylaws. Delaware law permits special stockholders’ meetings to be called by the board of directors or by any other person authorized in the Certificate of Incorporation or bylaws to call a special stockholders’ meeting.

 

Limitation on Personal Liability of Directors and Officers. A Delaware corporation is permitted to adopt provisions in its Certificate of Incorporation limiting or eliminating the liability of a director to the corporation and its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, provided that such liability does not arise from certain proscribed conduct, including breach of duty of loyalty, acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law or liability to the corporation based on unlawful distributions or improper personal benefit. Our Certificate of Incorporation currently limits the liability of directors of the Company to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law. Delaware law provides no protection to officers. Nevada law provides that a director or officer is not liable to the corporation or its stockholders for any act or failure to act unless it is proven that his or her act or failure to act constitutes a breach of fiduciary duty and the breach of that duty involved intentional misconduct, fraud, or a knowing violation of law. The limitation of liability provision under Nevada law applies automatically, unless the articles of incorporation or bylaws provide otherwise, to both directors and officers and applies to the breach of any fiduciary duty, including the duty of loyalty. Thus, after the Reincorporation is consummated the limitation on liability currently afforded to our directors will extend to our officers and both directors and officers will enjoy a higher level of liability protection under Nevada law.

 

Indemnification of Officers and Directors and Advancement of Expenses. Delaware and Nevada law have substantially similar provisions that permit indemnification by a corporation of officers, directors, employees and agents where they acted in good faith and in a manner which they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that Nevada law provides broader indemnification in connection with stockholder derivative lawsuits. A corporation is free to indemnify a director or officer if the director or officer is not liable under this provision and regardless of any determination of the director’s or officer’s good faith. Delaware and Nevada law differ in their provisions for advancement of expenses incurred by an officer or director in defending a civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding. Delaware law provides that expenses incurred by an officer or director in defending any civil, criminal, administrative or investigative action, suit or proceeding may be paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or officer to repay the amount if it is ultimately determined that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation. A Delaware corporation has the discretion to decide whether or not to advance expenses, unless its Certificate of Incorporation or bylaws provides for mandatory advancement. Our Certificate of Incorporation currently provides for a mandatory advancement of expenses of directors and officers, subject to receipt of an undertaking to repay the amounts advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such directors or officers are not entitled to be indemnified by the Company. Under Nevada law, the articles of incorporation, bylaws or an agreement made by the corporation may provide that the corporation must pay advancements of expenses in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit or proceedings upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or officer to repay the amount if it is ultimately determined that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation. Thus, a Nevada corporation may have no discretion to decide whether or not to advance expenses to directors or officers. We expect to provide for the mandatory advancement of expenses of directors and officers in the bylaws under Nevada law.

 

Dividends, Redemptions and Repurchases. Nevada law is less restrictive than Delaware law with respect to when dividends may be paid. Under Delaware law, unless further restricted in the Certificate of Incorporation, a corporation may declare and pay dividends, out of surplus, or if no surplus exists, out of net profits for the fiscal year in which the dividend is declared and/or the preceding fiscal year (provided that the amount of capital of the corporation is not less than the aggregate amount of the capital represented by the issued and outstanding stock of all classes having a preference upon the distribution of assets). In addition, Delaware law provides that a corporation may redeem or repurchase its shares only if the capital of the corporation is not impaired and such redemption or repurchase would not impair the capital of the corporation. Nevada law provides that no distribution (including dividends on, or redemption or repurchases of, shares of capital stock) may be made if, after giving effect to such distribution, the corporation would not be able to pay its debts as they become due in the ordinary course of business, or, except as specifically permitted by the articles of incorporation, the corporation’s total assets would be less than the sum of its total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed at the time of a dissolution to satisfy the preferential rights of preferred stockholders.

 

10

 

 

Actions by Written Consent of Stockholders. Nevada law and Delaware law each provide that, unless the Articles/Certificate of Incorporation provides otherwise, any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the stockholders may be taken without a meeting if the holders of outstanding stock having at least the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting consents to the action in writing. Unlike Delaware law, Nevada law does not require the corporation to give prompt notice of the taking of corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent to those stockholders who did not consent in writing. However, Rule 14c-2 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) requires that an information statement prepared in compliance with the Exchange Act rules is filed with the SEC and mailed to such non-consenting stockholders.

 

Stockholder Vote for Mergers and Other Corporation Reorganizations. In general, both jurisdictions require authorization by an absolute majority of outstanding shares entitled to vote, as well as approval by the board of directors, with respect to the terms of a merger or a sale of substantially all of the assets of the corporation. Delaware law does not require a stockholder vote of the surviving corporation in a merger (unless the corporation provides otherwise in its Certificate of Incorporation) if: (i) the merger agreement does not amend the existing Certificate of Incorporation; (ii) each share of stock of the surviving corporation outstanding immediately before the effective date of the merger is an identical outstanding share after the merger; and (iii) either no shares of common stock of the surviving corporation and no shares, securities or obligations convertible into such stock are to be issued or delivered under the plan of merger, or the authorized unissued shares or shares of common stock of the surviving corporation to be issued or delivered under the plan of merger plus those initially issuable upon conversion of any other shares, securities or obligations to be issued or delivered under such plan do not exceed 20% of the shares of common stock of such constituent corporation outstanding immediately prior to the effective date of the merger. Nevada law does not require a stockholder vote of the surviving corporation in a merger under substantially similar circumstances.

 

Anti-Takeover Provisions/Restrictions on Business Combinations. Both the Delaware law and the Nevada law contain provisions restricting the ability of a corporation to engage in business combinations with an interested stockholder. The restrictions prohibit a corporation, except in limited circumstances, from engaging in a business combination with any interested stockholder for a three-year period following the date such stockholder became an interested stockholder. Under Nevada law an interested stockholder is a person who holds 10% or more of the outstanding voting stock, which was acquired other than solely through an action by the corporation. Under Delaware law, the definition of interested stockholder is similar except that a holder of 15% or more of the voting stock is an interested stockholder. Both Delaware and Nevada law permit a corporation to opt out of application of the statutory provisions limiting business combinations with interested stockholders by making a statement to that effect in its certificate or articles of incorporation. We did not opt out of application of the statutory provisions in our Certificate of Incorporation and do not intend to do so in the Nevada Articles of Incorporation.

 

Significant Differences between the Charter and Bylaws of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. Before and After the Effective Date of Reincorporation

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation currently provides that the Company is authorized to issue 31,250,000 shares of Common Stock. Under the Articles of Incorporation to be filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada in connection with the Reincorporation, we will be authorized to issue 250,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share. See “Proposal 1 — Approval of the Authorized Share Increase” for further information.

 

United States Federal Income Tax Consequences

 

The following discussion of the material U.S. federal income tax consequences to our stockholders of the Reincorporation is based upon the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”), Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder, Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) rulings and pronouncements, and judicial decisions, all as in effect as of the date of this proxy statement, and all of which are subject to change, possibly with retroactive effect. Any such change could alter the tax consequences described herein. We have not sought and will not seek an opinion of counsel or a ruling from the IRS regarding the federal income tax consequences of the Reincorporation.

 

This discussion is for general information purposes only to stockholders who hold their shares as capital assets. This discussion does not address every aspect of U.S. federal income taxation that may be relevant to a particular company stockholder in light of the stockholder’s particular circumstances or to persons who are otherwise subject to special tax treatment, including, without limitation: (i) a partnership, subchapter S corporation or other pass-through entity; (ii) dealers in securities; (iii) banks or other financial institutions; (iv) insurance companies; (v) mutual funds; (vi) tax exempt organizations or pension funds; (vii) a foreign person, foreign entity or U.S. expatriate; (viii) persons who may be subject to the alternative minimum tax provisions of the Code; (ix) a stockholder whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar; (x) persons who acquired their common stock in connection with stock option or stock purchase plans or in other compensatory transactions; or (xi) persons who hold their common stock as part of a hedging, straddle, conversion or other risk reduction transaction. This discussion does not address the tax consequences to any holders of our options, warrants or convertible debt. The state and local tax consequences of the Reincorporation may vary significantly as to each stockholder, depending upon the jurisdiction in which such stockholder resides. You are urged to consult your own tax advisors to determine the particular consequences to you.

We believe that the merger of the Company with and into Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada), which will result in the Reincorporation, will qualify as a reorganization, under section 368(a)(1)(F) of the Code. As a result, the material federal income tax consequences of the Reincorporation, would be as follows: (i) we and Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) will not recognize any gain or loss as a result of the Reincorporation; (ii) no gain or loss will be recognized by holders of common stock on the conversion of the Common Stock into the common stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada); (iii) the aggregate adjusted tax basis of the common stock and preferred stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) received by a stockholder in connection with the Reincorporation will be the same as the aggregate adjusted tax basis of the Common Stock or Preferred Stock converted in connection with the Reincorporation; and (iv) the holding period, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, for the Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada) common stock received in connection with the Reincorporation by a stockholder will include the period during which the holder held the converted Common Stock or Preferred Stock.

 

If the Reincorporation fails to qualify for tax-free treatment, either under section 368(a)(1)(F) or any other provision of the Code, then stockholders may recognize gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes equal to the difference between the fair market value of the shares of stock received in connection with the Reincorporation and the stockholders’ adjusted tax basis in the shares stock converted in connection with the Reincorporation. Further, we would recognize taxable gain as if we sold all of our assets, subject to our liabilities, at fair market value.

 

Reporting Requirements. Each stockholder who qualifies as a “significant holder” that receives stock in connection with the Reincorporation will be required to file a statement with his, her or its federal income tax return setting forth his, her or its tax basis in the stock surrendered and the fair market value of the stock of Recruiter.com Group, Inc. (Nevada), if any, received in the Reincorporation, and to retain permanent records of these facts relating to the Reincorporation. A “significant holder” is a company stockholder who, immediately before the merger owned at least five percent (by vote or value) of our outstanding stock or owned our securities with an adjusted tax basis of $1,000,000 or more.

 

Our stockholders are urged to consult their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of the reincorporation, including the applicable federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences.

 

No Material Accounting Implications

 

Effecting the Reincorporation will not have any material accounting implications.

 

No Appraisal Rights

 

Under the Delaware General Corporation Law, our stockholders are not entitled to dissenter’s rights or appraisal rights with respect to the Reincorporation described in this Proposal 2 and we will not independently provide our stockholders with any such rights.

 

Interest of Certain Persons in Matters to be Acted Upon

 

Other than as described in “Significant Differences between the Corporate Laws of Delaware and Nevada – Limitation on Personal Liability of Directors and Officers,” no officer or director has any substantial interest, direct or indirect, by security holdings or otherwise, in the Reincorporation that is not shared by all of our other stockholders.

 

Vote Required

 

Approval of the Reincorporation requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote. Abstentions will have the same effect as a vote “against” on the outcome of this Proposal 2.

PROPOSAL 3. APPROVAL OF THE ADJOURNMENT

 

General

 

The Company is asking stockholders to approve, if necessary, adjournment of the Special Meeting to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Authorized Share Increase and/or the Reincorporation. Any adjournment of the Special Meeting for the purpose of soliciting additional proxies will allow stockholders who have already sent in their proxies to revoke them at any time prior to the time that the proxies are used.

 

Vote Required

 

The affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power present or represented by proxy is required to approve the Adjournment proposal. Abstentions represent the voting power present under the Company’s bylaws, and accordingly will have the same effect as a vote ‘against” on the outcome of this Proposal 3.

ARTICLE II

STOCKHOLDERS

 

2.1. PLACE OF MEETING.

 

Meetings of the stockholders shall be held either at the principal office of the Corporation or at any other place as shall be determined by the Board and designated in the notice of the meeting or executed waiver of notice. The Board may determine, in its discretion, that any meeting of the stockholders may be held solely by means of electronic communication in accordance with Section 2.2.

 

2.2. PARTICIPATION BY ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.

 

Stockholders not physically present at a meeting of the stockholders may participate in the meeting by electronic communication, videoconference, teleconference, or other available technology if the Corporation implements reasonable measures to:

 

(a) Verify the identity of each stockholder participating by electronic communication.

 

(b) Provide the stockholders a reasonable opportunity to participate and vote, including an opportunity to communicate and read or hear the proceedings in a substantially concurrent manner with the proceedings.

D-1

 

 

2.5. STOCKHOLDER NOMINATIONS AND PROPOSALS.

 

For business (including, but not limited to, director nominations) to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, the stockholder or stockholders of record intending to propose the business (the “proposing stockholder”) must have given written notice of the proposing stockholder’s nomination or proposal, either by personal delivery or by United States mail to the Secretary no earlier than the 120th calendar day, nor later than the 90th calendar day, prior to the anniversary date of the immediately preceding annual meeting. If the current year’s meeting is called for a date that is not within 30 days of the anniversary of the previous year’s annual meeting, notice must be received no later than ten calendar days following the day on which public announcement of the date of the annual meeting is first made. In no event will an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting of stockholders begin a new time period for giving a proposing stockholder’s notice as provided above.

 

For business to be properly brought before a special meeting of stockholders, the notice of the meeting sent by or at the direction of the person calling the meeting must set forth the nature of the business to be considered. A person or persons who have made a written request for a special meeting pursuant to this Article II may provide the information required for notice of a stockholder proposal under this section simultaneously with the written request for the meeting submitted to the Secretary or within ten calendar days after delivery of the written request for the meeting to the Secretary.

 

A proposing stockholder’s notice shall include as to each matter the proposing stockholder proposes to bring before either an annual or special meeting:

 

(a) the name and record address of the proposing stockholder;

 

(b) the class and number of shares of capital stock of the Corporation held by the proposing stockholder;

 

(c) a representation that the proposing stockholder is a holder of record of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to introduce the business specified in the notice;

 

(d) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting;

 

(e) any material interest of the proposing stockholder in such meeting;

 

(f) if the notice regards a nomination of a candidate for election as director: (i) the name, age, and business and residence address of the candidate; (ii) the principal occupation or employment of the candidate; and (iii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation beneficially owned by the candidate.

 

(g) if the notice regards a proposal other than a nomination of a candidate for election as director, a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting and the material interest of the proposing stockholder in such proposal; and

 

(h) any other information that is required to be provided by the proposing stockholder pursuant to regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in order to include information with respect to a stockholder proposal in the proxy statement and form of proxy for a stockholder’s meeting, stockholders must provide notice as required by, and otherwise comply with the requirements of, the Exchange Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

No business shall be conducted at the annual meeting of stockholders except business brought before the annual meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.5. The chairman of the meeting may refuse to acknowledge the proposal of any business not made in compliance with the foregoing procedure.

 

2.6. FIXING THE RECORD DATE.

 

For the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, the record date shall be the date specified by the Board in the notice of the meeting, and . If no date is specified, the record date shall be the close of business on the day before the day the first notice of the meeting is given or, if notice is waived, the close of business on the day before the day the meeting is held.

 

A record date fixed under this Section may not be more than 60, or less than 10, days before the meeting of stockholders. A determination of stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders is effective for any adjournment or postponement of the meeting unless the Board fixes a new record date for the adjourned or postponed meeting. The Board must fix a new record date if the meeting is adjourned or postponed more than 60 days after the original meeting of stockholders.

 

D-2

 

 

2.7. NOTICE OF STOCKHOLDERS’ MEETING.

 

Written notice stating the place, date, and time of the meeting, the means of any electronic communication by which stockholders may participate in the meeting, and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be given not less than 10, and not more than 60, days before the date of the meeting.

 

Notice to each stockholder entitled to vote at the meeting shall be given personally, by mail, or by electronic transmission if consented to by a stockholder, by or at the direction of the Secretary or the officer or person calling the meeting. If mailed, the notice shall be deemed to be given when deposited in the United States mail addressed to the stockholder at the stockholder’s address as it appears on the share transfer records of the Corporation, with postage thereon prepaid.

 

Any stockholder entitled to notice of a meeting may sign a written waiver of notice delivered to the Corporation either before or after the meeting. A stockholder’s participation or attendance at a meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice, except where the stockholder attends for the specific purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business on the grounds that the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.

 

2.8. LIST OF STOCKHOLDERS ENTITLED TO VOTE.

 

The officer who has charge of the stock ledger of the Corporation shall prepare and make, at least 10 days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder. The corporation shall not be required to include electronic mail addresses or other electronic contact information on such list. Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting for a period of at least 10 days prior to the meeting: (i) on a reasonably accessible electronic network, provided that the information required to gain access to such list is provided with the notice of the meeting, or (ii) during ordinary business hours, at the Corporation’s principal place of business.

 

In the event that the Corporation determines to make the list available on an electronic network, the Corporation may take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is available only to stockholders of the Corporation. If the meeting is to be held at a place, then the list shall be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present. If the meeting is to be held solely by means of remote communication, then the list shall also be open to the examination of any stockholder during the whole time of the meeting on a reasonably accessible electronic network, and the information required to access such list shall be provided with the notice of the meeting.

 

2.9. QUORUM OF STOCKHOLDERS.

 

At each meeting of stockholders for the transaction of any business, a quorum must be present to organize such meeting. The presence in person or by proxy of stockholders representing one-third of the voting power constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business at a meeting of stockholders, except as otherwise required by the Articles of Incorporation, these Bylaws, or Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the “Nevada Corporations Act”). If any class or series of shares is permitted or required to vote separately on any action, the presence in person or by proxy of stockholders representing one-third of the voting power of such class or series constitutes a quorum for the transaction of business.

 

The holders of a majority of the voting power represented in person or by proxy at a meeting, even if less than a quorum, may adjourn or postpone the meeting from time to time.

 

2.10. CONDUCT OF MEETINGS.

 

The Board, as it shall deem appropriate, may adopt by resolution rules and regulations for the conduct of meetings of the stockholders. At every meeting of the stockholders, the Executive Chairman, or in his or her absence or inability to act, such person as the Executive Chairman may appoint, or in the absence thereof or failure of the Executive Chairman to make such appointment, any officer elected by the Board, shall serve as chair of the meeting. The Secretary or, in his or her absence or inability to act, the person whom the chair of the meeting shall appoint, shall act as secretary of the meeting and keep the minutes thereof.

 

D-3

 

 

The chair of the meeting shall determine the order of business and, in the absence of a rule adopted by the Board, shall establish rules for the conduct of the meeting. The chair of the meeting shall announce the close of the polls for each matter voted upon at the meeting, after which no ballots, proxies, votes, changes, or revocations will be accepted. Polls for all matters before the meeting will be deemed to be closed upon final adjournment of the meeting.

 

2.11. VOTING OF STOCK.

 

Each outstanding share of stock, regardless of class or series, shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of stockholders, except as otherwise provided by these Bylaws and to the extent that the Articles of Incorporation or the certificate of designation establishing the class or series of stock provides for more or less than one vote per share or limits or denies voting rights to the holders of the shares of any class or series of stock.

 

Unless a different proportion is required by the Articles of Incorporation, these Bylaws, or the Nevada Corporations Act, on all matters other than the election of directors, the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of the shares present or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the subject matter shall be the act of the stockholders. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election at a meeting at which a quorum is present.

 

Stockholders shall not have the right to cumulate their votes for the election of directors of the Corporation.

 

2.12. VOTING BY PROXY.

 

A stockholder may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing by the stockholder or the stockholder’s attorney-in-fact. Any copy, communication by electronic transmission, or other reliable written reproduction may be substituted for the stockholder’s original written proxy for any purpose for which the original proxy could have been used if such copy, communication by electronic transmission, or other reproduction is a complete reproduction of the entire original written proxy.

 

No proxy shall be valid after six months from the date of its creation unless the proxy specifies its duration, which may not exceed seven years from the date of its creation. A proxy shall be revocable unless the proxy states that the proxy is irrevocable and the proxy is coupled with an interest sufficient to support an irrevocable power.

 

A properly created proxy or proxies continues in full force and effect until either of the following occurs:

 

(a) One of the following is filed with or transmitted to the Secretary of the Corporation or another person or persons appointed by the Corporation to count the votes of the stockholders and determine the validity of proxies and ballots: (i) another instrument or transmission properly revoking the proxy; or (ii) a properly created proxy or proxies bearing a later date.

Neither the Corporation nor any of its officers, directors, employees, or agents shall be liable for regarding that person as the owner of those shares at that time for those purposes, regardless of whether that person possesses a certificate for those shares and shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or interest in such share or shares on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall have express notice thereof, except as otherwise provided by law.

7.4. LOST, STOLEN, OR DESTROYED CERTIFICATES.

 

The Board may direct a new certificate or certificates to be issued in place of any certificate or certificates theretofore issued by the Corporation alleged to have been lost, stolen, or destroyed upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the owner of the allegedly lost, stolen, or destroyed certificate. When authorizing the issue of a new certificate or certificates, the Board, in its discretion and as a condition precedent to the issuance thereof, may require the owner of the allegedly lost, stolen, or destroyed certificate, or the owner’s legal representative, to give the Corporation a bond or other security sufficient to indemnify it against any claim that may be made against the Corporation or other obligees with respect to the certificate alleged to have been lost, stolen, or destroyed or the issuance of such new certificate or certificates.

 

7.5. PARTLY PAID SHARES.

 

The Corporation may issue the whole or any part of its shares as partly paid and subject to call for the remainder of the consideration to be paid therefor. Upon the face or back of each stock certificate issued to represent any such partly paid shares, and upon the books and records of the corporation in the case of uncertificated partly paid shares, the total amount of the consideration to be paid therefor and the amount paid thereon shall be stated. Upon the declaration of any dividend on fully paid shares, the corporation shall declare a dividend upon partly paid shares of the same class, but only upon the basis of the percentage of the consideration actually paid thereon.

The Board, subject to any restrictions contained in either (i) the Nevada Corporation Law, or (ii) the Articles of Incorporation, may authorize, and the Corporation may make, distributions to its stockholders in cash, property (other than shares of the Corporation), or a dividend of shares of the Corporation’s capital stock.

 

8.2. FIXING RECORD DATES FOR DISTRIBUTIONS AND SHARE DIVIDENDS.

 

For the purpose of determining stockholders entitled to receive a distribution by the Corporation (other than a distribution involving a purchase or redemption by the Corporation of any of its own shares) or a share dividend, the Board may, at the time of declaring the distribution or share dividend, set a date no more than 60 days prior to the date of the distribution or share dividend. If no record date is fixed for such distribution or share dividend, the record date shall be the date on which the resolution of the Board authorizing the distribution or share dividend is adopted.

Any such records maintained by the Corporation may be kept on, or by means of, or be in the form of, any information storage device or method, provided that the records so kept can be converted into clearly legible paper form within a reasonable time. The Corporation shall so convert any records so kept upon the request of any person entitled to inspect such records pursuant to the provisions of the Nevada Corporations Act. When records are kept in such manner, a clearly legible paper form produced from or by means of the information storage device or method shall be admissible in evidence, and accepted for all other purposes, to the same extent as an original paper form accurately portrays the record.

 

Any stockholder of record that satisfies the requirements of the Nevada Corporations Act, in person or by attorney or other agent, shall, upon written demand under oath stating the purpose thereof, have the right during the usual hours for business to inspect for any proper purpose the Corporation’s stock ledger, a list of its stockholders, and its other books and records and to make copies or extracts therefrom. A proper purpose shall mean a purpose reasonably related to such person’s interest as a stockholder. In every instance where an attorney or other agent is the person who seeks the right to inspection, the demand under oath shall be accompanied by a power of attorney or such other writing that authorizes the attorney or other agent to so act on behalf of the stockholder. The demand under oath shall be directed to the Corporation at its registered office in Nevada or at its principal executive office.

 

D-15

Whenever these Bylaws may conflict with any applicable law or the Articles of Incorporation, such conflict shall be resolved in favor of such law or the Articles of Incorporation.
