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

 

On February 26, 2021, Guardion Health Sciences, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Amendment”) with the Delaware Secretary of State to its certificate of incorporation to effectuate a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share. Pursuant to the reverse stock split, on March 1, 2021 at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time (the “Effective Time”) each six (6) shares of common stock issued and outstanding will be combined into one (1) validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock. The par value per share remains the same. The Amendment provides that no fractional shares will be issued; the Company will round up any fractional shares upon the consummation of the reverse stock split.

 

The reverse split ratio selected by the Board of Directors was selected pursuant to the authority granted to the Board of Directors by the stockholders of the Company. A copy of the Amendment filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
