Cyclo Therapeutics, Inc. 2021 Equity Incentive Plan

 

On June 24, 2021, the stockholders of Cyclo Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the Company’s 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”) at the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). The Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) previously approved the 2021 Plan, subject to stockholder approval, on April 21, 2021.

 

The 2021 Plan became effective immediately upon approval by the Company’s stockholders and will expire on June 24, 2031, unless terminated earlier by the Board. The 2021 Plan provides for the granting to the Company’s employees, officers, directors, consultants and advisors of performance awards payable in shares of common stock, stock options (non-statutory and incentive), restricted stock awards, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), restricted share units (“RSUs”) and other stock-based awards. The purpose of the 2021 Plan is to secure for the Company and its stockholders the benefits arising from capital stock ownership by eligible participants who are expected to contribute to the Company’s future growth and success. Subject to adjustment as provided in the 2021 Plan, 3,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock are available for issuance under the 2021 Plan.

 

The foregoing summary of the 2021 Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the 2021 Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. A more detailed summary of the 2021 Plan can be found in the definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2021 (the “Proxy Statement”).

 

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

 

On June 24, 2021, at the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000. The Company filed a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on June 24, 2021 to effect such increase. The Certificate of Amendment has been filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein. A more detailed description of the amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation can be found in Proxy Statement.
