SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT
RELATING TO SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON DECEMBER 9, 2022

 

This proxy statement supplement should be read together with the definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) of NuZee, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2022 in connection with the Company’s special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to be held on December 9, 2022. All terms used herein and not defined shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.

 

The purpose of this filing is to update the information contained in the Proxy Statement relating to the “broker non-vote” rules and voting requirements regarding (a) Proposal One: Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, and authorization of the Company’s Board of Directors, to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock, within a range from 1-for-10 to 1-for-50, with the exact ratio of the reverse stock split to be determined by the Board (“Proposal One”); and (b) Proposal Three: Approval of one or more adjournments of the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes to approve any of the preceding proposals at the time of the Special Meeting, or in the absence of a quorum (“Proposal Three”).

 

The Proxy Statement indicated that Proposal One and Proposal Three were “non-routine” items and that, therefore, a broker does not have the discretion to vote uninstructed shares on Proposal One and Proposal Three. The New York Stock Exchange has determined that Proposal One and Proposal Three are in fact “routine” matters and therefore a broker who has not received instructions from its clients will have the discretion to vote its clients’ uninstructed shares on Proposal One and Proposal Three. Accordingly, the Company is hereby revising the information in the Proxy Statement to state that Proposal One and Proposal Three are “routine” proposals for which a broker will be permitted to exercise its discretion to vote uninstructed shares.

 

Except as specifically supplemented by the information contained above, all information set forth in the Proxy Statement remains unchanged. From and after the date of this Proxy Statement supplement, all references to the “Proxy Statement” are to the Proxy Statement as supplemented hereby.

 

 

 

 

CHANGES TO PROXY STATEMENT

 

The following question and answer contained in the Proxy Statement is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

What are the effects of broker non-votes?

 

A broker “non-vote” generally occurs when a broker or other nominee holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a proposal because the broker or other nominee has not received instructions as to such proposal from the beneficial owner and does not have discretionary powers as to such proposal. These proposals are referred to as “non-routine” matters. If you are a beneficial owner and do not provide your broker or other nominee with instructions on how to vote your street name shares, your broker or nominee will not be permitted to vote them on “non-routine” matters (a broker non-vote).

 

The Company believes that Proposal Two is a non-routine matter under applicable rules. Accordingly, we believe that, without your specific voting instructions, your broker or nominee will not be permitted to vote your shares on Proposal Two, but will be permitted to vote shares on Proposal One and Proposal Three. However, this remains subject to the final determination from the NYSE regarding which of the proposals are “routine” or “non-routine.” If you hold your shares in street name, it is therefore particularly important that you instruct your brokers on how you wish to vote your shares so that your vote can be counted. We encourage you to provide instructions to your broker regarding the voting of your shares.

 

Shares subject to a broker non-vote will have the effect of a vote against each of Proposals One and Two. Shares subject to a broker non-vote will not be considered entitled to vote with respect to Proposal Three and will not affect its outcome.
