EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Registration Statement registers an additional 8,186,106 shares of the Registrant’s common stock that may be offered and sold under the Cipherloc Corporation 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). The number of shares of the Registrant’s common stock available for issuance under the stockholder-approved Plan is subject to an automatic annual increase on the first day of each of the Registrant’s fiscal years beginning on January 1, 2022 and ending on the last January 1st during the initial ten-year term of the Plan, by an amount equal to the lesser of (i) 5% of the Registrant’s shares of common stock outstanding (on an as-converted basis, which shall include shares of the Registrant’s common stock issuable upon the exercise or conversion of all outstanding securities or rights convertible into or exercisable for shares of the Registrant’s common stock, including, without limitation, preferred stock, warrants and employee options to purchase any shares of the Registrant’s common stock) on the final day of the immediately preceding calendar year and (ii) such lesser number of shares of the Registrant’s common stock as determined by the Registrant’s board of directors. For 2022, the Board authorized an increase of 8,186,106 shares of the Registrant’s common stock under the Plan, consisting of the full 5% increase allowed pursuant to the Plan’s evergreen provision. These shares are in addition to the 8,000,000 shares of common stock registered on the Registrant’s Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 25, 2021 (File No. 333-260463) (the “Prior Registration Statement”).

 

In accordance with General Instruction E of Form S-8, the contents of the Prior Registration Statement are incorporated herein by reference and made part of this Registration Statement, except as amended hereby.
