To Our Shareholders:

Thank you for your continued support of Boxlight. Despite another year of global turmoil and uncertainty, Boxlight continues to see robust demand for our solutions and our future is extremely bright.

Earlier this month, we reported our financial results for Q2 2022, delivering our seventh consecutive quarter of double-digit or greater revenue growth. For the trailing 12 months ended June 30, 2022, we reported $218 million in revenue and $12 million in Adjusted EBITDA, with revenue growing by 79% and Adjusted EBITDA by 76% over the prior year period. We also concluded the second quarter with $56 million in backorders, the strongest pipeline in our history, and a healthy balance sheet with $54 million in working capital and $44 million in net assts.

As further evidence of our optimism, we have reiterated our full year 2022 guidance of $250 million in revenue and $26 million in Adjusted EBITDA.

The dramatic improvement in our financial performance over recent quarters is a direct result of our tremendous employees, industry-best solutions and loyal channel partners.

Our mission is to be a leading provider of innovative and effective interactive technologies. We are committed to driving durable, long-term shareholder value through realizing our mission and executing on our commitment to sustainable growth and profitability.


Chairman & CEO

Sincerely,

Michael Pope

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR each director nominee. These individuals bring a range of relevant experiences and overall diversity of perspectives that is essential to good governance and leadership of our company.

PROPOSAL 2: RATIFICATION OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the ratification of the Company’s independent auditors, FORVIS LLP (“FORVIS”). FORVIS acquired our predecessor auditing firm, Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP on June 1, 2022. Continuing with FORVIS as our independent public accounting firm will provide us with continuity in our auditing services. In addition, we believe FORVIS has sufficient knowledge and experience to provide our company with a wide range of accounting services that are on par with the best offered in the industry.

PROPOSAL 3: EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the approval of the Company’s executive compensation plan, on an advisory basis. We believe the numbers that we have prepared are fair and in the best interest of the Company’s executives and shareholders alike.

Director Independence

As of the date of this Annual Report, Dr. Rudy Crew and Messrs. Dale Strang, Charles P. Amos and R. Wayne Jackson are our independent Directors. As a Nasdaq listed company, we believe that the foregoing Directors satisfy the definition of “Independent Director” under Nasdaq Rule 5605(a)(2). In making this determination, our Board of Directors considered the relationships that each of these non-employee Directors has with us and all other facts and circumstances our Board of Directors deemed relevant in determining their independence. As required under applicable NASDAQ rules, we anticipate that our independent Directors will meet on a regular basis as often as necessary to fulfill their responsibilities, including at least annually in executive session without the presence of non-independent Directors and management.

Board Leadership Structure

Mr. Pope holds the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of the Company. The Board of Directors believes that Mr. Pope’s services as both Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board is in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. Mr. Pope possesses detailed and in-depth knowledge of the issues, opportunities and challenges facing us in our business and is thus best positioned to develop agendas that ensure that the Board’s time and attention are focused on the most critical matters relating to the Company’s business. His combined role enables decisive leadership, ensures clear accountability, and enhances the Company’s ability to communicate its message and strategy clearly and consistently to our shareholders, employees and customers.

The Board of Directors has not designated a lead director. The independent Directors can call and plan their executive sessions collaboratively and, between meetings of the Board, communicate with management and one another directly. Under these circumstances, the Directors believe designating a lead director to take on responsibility for functions in which they all currently participate might detract from rather than enhance performance of their responsibilities as Directors.

Under these circumstances, the Directors believe designating a lead independent director to take on responsibility for functions in which they all currently participate might detract from rather than enhance performance of their responsibilities as Directors.

The Board of Directors receives regular reports from the Chief Executive Officer and members of senior management on operational, financial, legal and regulatory issues and risks. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors additionally is charged under its charter with oversight of financial risk, including the Company’s internal controls, and it receives regular reports from management, the Company’s internal auditors and the Company’s independent auditors. Whenever a committee of the Board receives a report involving risk identification, risk management or risk mitigation, the chairman of the committee reports on that discussion, as appropriate, to the full Board during the next Board meeting.

Audit Committee.

At present, the Audit Committee members consist of Mr. Jackson, Mr. Strang and Dr. Crew. All members of the Audit Committee are independent Directors. The Audit Committee will assist the Board by overseeing the performance of the independent auditors and the quality and integrity of our internal accounting, auditing and financial reporting practices. The Audit Committee is responsible for retaining (subject to shareholder ratification) and, as necessary, terminating the engagement of, the independent auditors, annually reviewing the qualifications, performance and independence of the independent auditors and the audit plan, fees and audit results, and pre-approving audit and non-audit services to be performed by the auditors and related fees. Our Board had previously determined Mr. Jackson meets the requirements of being an “audit committee financial expert,” as defined by the rules and regulations of the SEC, and, as a result, he serves as Chair of the Audit Committee.

Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee members are Mr. Strang, Mr. Jackson and Dr. Crew, with Mr. Strang serving as Chair of the Compensation Committee.

2022 PROXY STATEMENT


Considerations in Evaluating Director Nominees

The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the Company’s business consistent with its fiduciary duty to the shareholders. This significant responsibility requires highly skilled individuals with various qualities, attributes and professional experience. There are general requirements for service on the Board that are applicable to Directors and there are other skills and experience that should be represented on the Board as a whole but not necessarily by each director. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee considers the qualifications of director candidates individually and in the broader context of the Board’s overall composition and the Company’s current and future needs.

Shareholder Recommendations for Nominations to the Board of Directors

We do not currently have a procedure by which security holders may recommend nominees to the Board. Prior to the listing of our common stock on NASDAQ, as a private company with a limited shareholder base, we did not believe that it was important to provide such a procedure. However, as a publicly traded NASDAQ company with the requirement to hold annual shareholder meetings, we will consider implementing such a policy in the future.

Communications with the Board of Directors

Shareholders can mail communications to the Board of Directors, c/o Secretary, Boxlight Corporation, 2750 Premiere Parkway, suite 900, Duluth, Georgia 30097, who will forward the correspondence to each addressee.

Corporate Governance Guidelines and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

We have adopted a written code of business conduct and ethics that applies to our Directors, officers and employees, including our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions. A copy of the code will be made available on the Corporate Governance section of our website, which is located at www.boxlight.com. If we make any substantive amendments to, or grant any waivers from, the code of business conduct and ethics for any officer or director, we will disclose the nature of such amendment or waiver on our website or in a current report on Form 8-K.

Proposal 2: Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

What am I voting on and how should I vote?

You are being asked to ratify the appointment of FORVIS LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2022. Although our governing documents do not require us to submit this matter to shareholders, the Rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market require that we submit this matter to a vote, and the Board also believes that asking shareholders to ratify the appointment of FORVIS, LLP is consistent with best practices in corporate governance.

We believe that FORVIS LLP offers services on par with the best in their industry and is sufficiently qualified to conduct their duties as independent auditor.

The Board of Directors therefore recommends that you vote “FOR” the ratification of the appointment of FORVIS, LLP as Boxlight’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.

2022 PROXY STATEMENT


Audit Committee Policy on Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-Audit Services of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

In accordance with the SEC’s auditor independence rules, the Audit Committee has established the following policies and procedures by which it approves in advance any audit or permissible non-audit services to be provided to the Company by its independent auditor.

Prior to the engagement of the independent auditor for any fiscal year’s audit, management submits to the Audit Committee for approval lists of recurring audit, audit-related, tax and other services expected to be provided by the auditor during that fiscal year. The Audit Committee adopts pre-approval schedules describing the recurring services that it has pre-approved, and is informed on a timely basis, and in any event by the next scheduled meeting, of any such services rendered by the independent auditor and the related fees.

The fees for any services listed in a pre-approval schedule are budgeted, and the Audit Committee requires the independent auditor and management to report actual fees versus the budget periodically throughout the year. The Audit Committee will require additional pre-approval if circumstances arise where it becomes necessary to engage the independent auditor for additional services above the amount of fees originally pre-approved. Any audit or non-audit service not listed in a pre-approval schedule must be separately pre-approved by the Audit Committee on a case-by-case basis. Every request to adopt or amend a pre-approval schedule or to provide services that are not listed in a pre-approval schedule must include a statement by the independent auditors as to whether, in their view, the request is consistent with the SEC’s rules on auditor independence.

The Audit Committee will not grant approval for:

any services prohibited by applicable law or by any rule or regulation of the SEC or other regulatory body applicable to the Company;
provision by the independent auditor to the Company of strategic consulting services of the type typically provided by management consulting firms; or
the retention of the independent auditor in connection with a transaction initially recommended by the independent auditor, the tax treatment of which may not be clear under the Internal Revenue Code and related regulations and which it is reasonable to conclude will be subject to audit procedures during an audit of the Company’s financial statements.

Subject to certain exceptions, tax services proposed to be provided by the auditor to any director, officer or employee of the Company who is in an accounting role or financial reporting oversight role must be approved by the Audit Committee on a case-by-case basis where such services are to be paid for by the Company, and the Audit Committee will be informed of any services to be provided to such individuals that are not to be paid for by the Company.

In determining whether to grant pre-approval of any non-audit services in the “all other” category, the Audit Committee will consider all relevant facts and circumstances, including the following four basic guidelines:

whether the service creates a mutual or conflicting interest between the auditor and the Company;
whether the service places the auditor in the position of auditing his or her own work;
whether the service results in the auditor acting as management or an employee of the Company; and
whether the service places the auditor in a position of being an advocate for the Company.

2022 PROXY STATEMENT


Proposal 3: Advisory Vote on Executive Compensation (“Say on Pay”)

What am I voting on and how should I vote?

This proposal gives our shareholders the opportunity to vote to approve, on an advisory, non-binding basis, in accordance with Section 14A of the Exchange Act, the compensation of our Named Executive Officers (or NEOs), as disclosed in this Proxy Statement. At our Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on June 25, 2021 (the “2021 Annual Meeting”), a majority of the votes cast on the say-on-pay proposal were cast “For” the approval of the compensation of our NEOs.

The Board of Directors therefore recommends you vote “FOR” the Resolution that the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive officers, as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K, including the Executive Compensation, compensation tables, and narrative discussions to be hereby APPROVED.

Approval on an advisory basis of the compensation of our named executive officers is an ordinary resolution and must receive the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast in person or by proxy at the 2022 Annual Meeting in order to be approved.

THE TEXT OF THE RESOLUTION IN RESPECT OF PROPOSAL 3 IS AS FOLLOWS:

“RESOLVED, that the Company’s shareholders approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive officers, as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K in this proxy statement in the section entitled “Executive Compensation,” including the compensation tables and narrative discussions set forth therein.”

ADVISORY VOTE ONLY

This vote is advisory, and therefore not binding on the Company, the Compensation Committee or the Board of Directors. However, the Compensation Committee will consider the outcome of the vote when considering future executive compensation arrangements. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the vote on this proposal.

Questions and Answers About the Meeting

Why am I receiving these materials?

You are receiving these materials because you were a shareholder of Boxlight Corporation (the “Company”) as of August 15, 2022 (the “Record Date”), which is the record date of our 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, which will be held online on Monday, October 10, 2022 at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/BOXL2022.   

What proposals will be voted on at the Annual Meeting and how does the Board of Directors recommend that i vote?

PROPOSAL 1: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Graphic

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR each director nominee. These individuals bring a range of relevant experiences and overall diversity of perspectives that is essential to good governance and leadership of our company.

PROPOSAL 2: RATIFICATION OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

Graphic

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the ratification of FORVIS, LLP. This firm is the successor to our prior firm, Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP, following their merger with another firm on June 1, 2022. We believe the firm has sufficient knowledge and experience to provide our company with a wide range of accounting services that are on par with the best offered in the industry.

PROPOSAL 3: EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

The Board of Directors recommends that you vote FOR the approval of the Company’s executive compensation plan, on an advisory basis. We believe the numbers that we have prepared are fair and in the best interest of the Company’s executives and shareholders alike.

Who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting?

You can vote your shares of Class A Common Stock if our records show that you owned the shares on the Record Date. As of the close of business on the Record Date, a total of 73,627,915 shares of Class A common stock are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

What do I need to do to attend the Annual Meeting virtually?

To attend the meeting online, you will need to log into our 2022 Annual Meeting approximately 10-15 minutes before the start of the meeting, which commences at 11 am ET on October 10, 2022, at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/BOXL2022. You may attend as a shareholder, which will entitle you to vote and ask questions, or you may attend as a guest.

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

Shareholders of Record (shares registered in your name):

You hold your shares directly and may vote your shares in accordance with the instructions on your proxy card.

Beneficial Owners (shares registered in the name of your broker, bank or other nominee):

You hold your shares through a brokerage firm and will have to provide instructions to your broker to vote your shares for you.

In order for your vote to count, you must vote by October 9, 2022 at 11:59 pm. After that, the only way to cast your vote will be by attending the virtual meeting on October 10, 2022 at 11 am ET.

DEADLINE

Can I change my vote or revoke my proxy?

Shareholders of Record (shares registered in your name):

Yes. You can revoke your proxy vote at any time before it is exercised at the Annual Meeting in any of these three ways:

by submitting written notice revoking your proxy card to the Secretary of the Company;
by submitting another proxy via the Internet or by mail that is dated after your original proxy vote and, if by mail, it is properly signed; or
by attending the Annual Meeting online and voting at that time.

Beneficial Owners (shares registered in the name of your broker, bank or other nominee):

If your shares of Boxlight Class A common stock are held by a broker, bank, or other nominee (in “street name”), you will receive instructions from them on how to vote your shares. If your shares are held by a broker and you do not give the broker specific instructions on how to vote your shares, your broker may vote your shares at its discretion on “routine” matters to be acted upon at the annual meeting. However, your shares will not be voted on any “non-routine” matters. An absence of voting instructions on any “non-routine” matters will result in a “broker non-vote.”

The only “routine” matter to be acted upon at the annual meeting is:

Proposal 2: Ratification of the appointment of FOVIS, LLP as the Company’s independent auditor for fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.

All other matters to be acted upon at the annual meeting are “non-routine” matters. As such, if you hold all or any portion of your shares in street name and you do not give your broker or bank specific instructions on how to vote your shares, your shares will not be voted on the following “non-routine” matter:

Proposal 1: Election of the seven Directors named in this proxy statement.
Proposal 3: To approve (on an advisory basis) the Company’s executive compensation.

What is the effect of giving a proxy?

Whichever method you use to transmit your voting instructions, your shares of Boxlight Class A common Stock will be voted as you direct. If you designate the proxy named on the proxy card to vote on your behalf, but do not specify how to vote your shares, they will be voted as follows:

Proposal 1: FOR ALL NOMINEES for the election of Directors;
Proposal 2: FOR the ratification of the appointment of FORVIS, LLP as the Company’s independent auditor for fiscal year ending December 31, 2022;
Proposal 3: FOR the approval (on an advisory basis) the Company’s executive compensation.
For any other matters that may arise at the Annual Meeting, such matters will be voted in accordance with the judgment of the persons voting the proxy on any other matter properly brought before the meeting.

If you vote in advance using one of the methods described above, then you may still attend and vote at the meeting. Please see Revoking a Proxy below for additional details.

BOXLIGHT CORPORATION

29


If you vote your proxy, your vote must be received by 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Standard Time on October 9, 2022 in order for your vote to be counted.

What are the effects of abstentions and broker non-votes?

Abstentions and broker-non-votes will be counted for purposes of determining the presence of quorum but will have no effect on the outcome of the votes for the matters set forth in the proxy statement.

An abstention represents the action by a shareholder to refrain from voting “for” or “against” a proposal. “Broker non-votes” represent votes that could have been cast on a particular matter by a broker, as a shareholder of record, but that were not cast because the broker (i) lacked discretionary voting authority on the matter and did not receive voting instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares or (ii) had discretionary voting authority but nevertheless refrained from voting on the matter.

What is a quorum?

Under our amended and restated bylaws, as adopted on June 24, 2021, a quorum at all meetings of our shareholders requires 45% of the holders of our shares of capital stock entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy.

How many votes are needed for approval of each proposal?

Proposal 1, Proposal 2, and Proposal 3 require the approval of a simple majority of shareholders voting. Since proposal 3 is an advisory vote, there is technically no minimum vote requirement for that proposal.

How are proxies solicited for the Annual Meeting and who is paying for such solicitation?

We do. In addition to sending you these materials and posting them on the internet, some of our employees may contact you by telephone, by mail, by fax, by email or in person. None of these employees will receive any extra compensation for doing this. We may reimburse brokerage firms and other custodians for their reasonable out-of-pocket costs in forwarding these proxy materials to shareholders.

What does it mean if I received more than one Notice?

This may be in error or otherwise reflect that you hold shares in different names. In addition, we may send reminders to ensure that shareholders vote their shares.

Is my vote confidential?

Yes.

The proponent may submit a maximum of one (1) proposal of not more than five hundred (500) words for inclusion in our proxy materials for a meeting of security holders.

Company Website

The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K is available on our website at www.boxlightcorp.com.

Delinquent Section 16(a) Reports

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act requires our executive officers and Directors, and persons who own more than 10% of our common stock, to file reports regarding ownership of, and transactions in, our securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to provide us with copies of those filings. Based solely on our review of the copies of such forms furnished to us and written representations by our officers and Directors regarding their compliance with applicable reporting requirements under Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, we believe that all Section 16(a) filing requirements for our executive officers, Directors and 10% shareholders were met during the year ended December 31, 2021, except for the following:
