Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (the “Company”) held its annual meeting of shareholders on May 15, 2019 (the “2019 Annual Meeting”). At the 2019 Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved the 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan”). A copy of the 2019 Plan is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. Copies of the forms of the Notice of Grant and Restricted Stock Agreement and the Stock Option Agreement approved by the Company’s Board of Directors to be used for grants under the 2019 Plan are filed as Exhibit 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 5.03
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
As described in Item 5.07 below, at the 2019 Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (“Restated Articles”). The Restated Articles became effective upon filing with the California Secretary of State on May 15, 2019.
The Restated Articles automatically convert the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock into shares of non-voting common stock. The Company’s prior Articles of Incorporation authorized 85,000,000 shares of common stock and 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The Restated Articles authorize 85,000,000 shares of common stock, 2,000,000 shares of non-voting common stock, and 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock. Other than authorizing and setting forth the terms of the non-voting common stock and causing the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Restated Articles did not materially change the Company’s prior Articles of Incorporation.
The foregoing description of the Restated Articles is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Restated Articles, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Item  8.01
Other Events.
As described in Item 5.03 and Item 5.07 above, at the 2019 Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved the Restated Articles. The Restated Articles became effective upon filing with the California Secretary of State on May 15, 2019. Upon such filing, each outstanding share of Series A Preferred Stock automatically converted into one share of non-voting common stock, resulting in the issuance of 1,467,155 shares of non-voting common stock to Patriot Financial Partners III, L.P. (“Patriot”), which was the sole holder of shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Upon the conversion, all shares of Series A Preferred Stock ceased to exist and resumed the status of authorized and unissued shares of the Company’s preferred stock. As disclosed in the proxy statement for the 2019 Annual Meeting, each share of non-voting common stock will automatically convert into one share of common stock (subject to adjustment as provided in the terms of the non-voting common stock set forth in the Restated Articles) upon any transfer of such non-voting common stock to a person other than Patriot or an affiliate of Patriot (i) in a public offering or public sale; (ii) in which no one transferee (or group of associated transferees) acquires the right to receive 2% or more of any class of the voting securities of the Company then outstanding; or (iii) to a transferee that controls more than 50% of the voting securities of the Company without giving effect to such transfer. Like the Series A Preferred Stock, the non-voting common stock may only be transferred to affiliates of Patriot, to the Company or in a transfer described in the immediately preceding sentence.
