Upon issuance of the Series P Preferred Stock (as defined in Item 5.03 below) on August 2, 2022, the ability of Morgan Stanley (the “Registrant”) to declare or pay dividends or distributions on, or purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire for consideration, shares of its junior stock will be subject to certain restrictions in the event that the Registrant fails to declare and pay full dividends on its Series P Preferred Stock. “Junior stock” means any class or series of capital stock of the Registrant that ranks junior to the Series P Preferred Stock as to the payment of dividends and the distribution of assets upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Registrant. Junior stock includes the Registrant’s common stock. These restrictions are set forth in the Certificate of Designation establishing the terms of the Series P Preferred Stock, a copy of which is filed as Exhibits 3.1 and 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
