Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

 

To the extent required by Item 3.03 of Form 8-K, the information contained in Item 5.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Current Report”) is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

As reported below under Item 5.07 of this Current Report, Enveric Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) held a special meeting of stockholders on July 14, 2022 (the “Special Meeting”) at which meeting the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment (the “Plan Amendment”) to the Company’s 2020 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”) to (i) increase the aggregate number of shares available for the grant of awards by 7,304,107 shares to a total of 10,000,000 shares, and (ii) add an “evergreen” provision whereby the number of shares authorized for issuance pursuant to awards under the Incentive Plan will be automatically increased on the first trading date immediately following the date the Company issues any share of Common Stock (defined below) to any person or entity, to the extent necessary so that the number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock authorized for issuance under the Incentive Plan will equal the greater of (x) 10,000,000 shares, and (y) 15% of the total number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock outstanding as of such issuance date.

 

For more information about the Plan Amendment, see the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 31, 2022 (the “Proxy Statement”), the relevant portions of which are incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Plan Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Plan Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 5.03 Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

On July 14, 2022, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of Delaware to effect a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of the shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), either issued and outstanding or held by the Company as treasury stock, effective as of 4:05 p.m. (New York time) on July 14, 2022 (the “Reverse Stock Split”). As reported below under Item 5.07 of this Current Report, the Company held the Special Meeting on July 14, 2022, at which meeting the Company’s stockholders approved the amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock at a ratio in the range of 1-for-10 to 1-for-100, with such ratio to be determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) and included in a public announcement. Following the Special Meeting, the Board determined to effect the Reverse Stock Split at a ratio of 1-for-50 and approved the corresponding final form of the Certificate of Amendment.

 

As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 50 shares of issued and outstanding Common Stock will be automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of Common Stock, without any change in the par value per share. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Any fractional shares that would otherwise have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the next whole number. The Reverse Stock Split will reduce the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding from 52,684,548 shares to approximately 1,053,691 shares, subject to adjustment for the rounding up of fractional shares. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock under the Certificate of Incorporation will remain unchanged at 100,000,000 shares.

 

Proportionate adjustments will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock that may be purchased upon exercise of outstanding stock options granted by the Company, and the number of shares of Common Stock reserved for future issuance under the Company’s 2020 Long-Term Incentive Plan.

 

The Common Stock will begin trading on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis on The Nasdaq Capital Market on July 15, 2022. The trading symbol for the Common Stock will remain “ENVB.” The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 29405E208.

 

For more information about the Reverse Stock Split, see the Proxy Statement, the relevant portions of which are incorporated herein by reference. The information set forth herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Certificate of Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated by reference herein.
