NOTICE TO STOCKHOLDERS OF ACTION APPROVED BY CONSENTING STOCKHOLDER

 

The following action was taken based upon the unanimous recommendation of Pharmagreen’s Board of Directors and the written consent of the consenting stockholder:

 

I.AMENDMENT TO THE ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK  

 

On October 13, 2020 the Board of Directors and the consenting stockholders adopted approved a resolution to effect an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation to authorize one million (1,000,000) shares of preferred stock. The number of shares of authorized common stock remains at 2,000,000,000.  The par value of each share of preferred stock is $0.001 and the par value of common stock shall remain $0.001 per share.  Such amendment is referred to herein as the “Authorized Shares Amendment.”

 

Currently, Pharmagreen has 2,000,000,000 shares of common stock authorized, of which 95,806,289 shares are issued and outstanding.  The Authorized Shares Amendment shall be effective twenty (20) days after this Information Statement is mailed to stockholders of Pharmagreen; and thereafter, Pharmagreen will have 1,904,193,711 shares of common stock which will be available for issuance and 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock which will be available for issuance.

 

Any issuance of preferred stock could, under certain circumstances, have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control of Pharmagreen by increasing the number of outstanding shares entitled to vote and by increasing the number of votes required to approve a change in control of Pharmagreen.

 

Any additional issuance of common stock could, under certain circumstances, have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control of Pharmagreen by increasing the number of outstanding shares entitled to vote and by increasing the number of votes required to approve a change in control of Pharmagreen.  Shares of common stock could be issued, or rights to purchase such shares could be issued, to render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of Pharmagreen by means of a tender offer, proxy contest, merger or otherwise.  The ability of the Board of the Directors to issue such additional shares of common stock could discourage an attempt by a party to acquire control of Pharmagreen by tender offer or other means.  Such issuances could therefore deprive stockholders of benefits that could result from such an attempt, such as the realization of a premium over the market price that such an attempt could cause.  Moreover, the issuance of such additional shares of common stock to person’s interests aligned with that of the Board of Directors could make it more difficult to remove incumbent managers and directors from office even if such change were to be favorable to stockholders generally.

 

While the authorization and subsequent issuance in shares of preferred stock authorized may have anti-takeover ramifications, the Board of Directors believes that the financial flexibility offered by the amendment outweighs any disadvantages.  To the extent that the issuance of preferred shares authorized may have anti-takeover effects, the amendment may encourage persons seeking to acquire Pharmagreen to negotiate directly with the Board of Directors, enabling the Board of Directors to consider a proposed transaction in a manner that best serves the stockholders’ interests.

 

The Board believes that it is advisable and in the best interests of Pharmagreen to have available additional authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock in an amount adequate to provide for Pharmagreen’s future needs.  The unissued shares of preferred stock will be available for issuance from time to time as may be deemed advisable or required for various purposes, including the issuance of shares in connection with financing or acquisition transactions.   Pharmagreen has no present plans or commitments for the issuance or use of the proposed additional shares of preferred stock in connection with any financing.  

 

The Authorized Shares Amendment is not intended to have any anti-takeover effect and is not part of any series of anti-takeover measures contained in any debt instruments or the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws of Pharmagreen in effect on the date of this Information Statement.  However, Pharmagreen stockholders should note that the availability of additional authorized and unissued shares of preferred stock could make any attempt to gain control of Pharmagreen or the Board of Directors more difficult or time consuming and that the availability of additional authorized and unissued shares of common stock might make it more difficult to remove management.  Pharmagreen is not aware of any proposed attempt to take over Pharmagreen or of any attempt to acquire a large block of Pharmagreen’s stock. Pharmagreen has no present intention to use the increased number of authorized preferred stock for anti-takeover purposes.
