Information Statement Pursuant to Section 14C
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

 

This Information Statement is being provided on or about September 13, 2022, to all holders of record on August 29, 2022, (the “Record Date”) of the common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock and Series C Preferred Stock, of Touchpoint Group Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Touchpoint” or the “Company”), in connection with the adoption of an amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation by our Board of Directors (the “Board”) and by written consent of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Company (the “Approving Stockholders”) entitled to vote thereon, increasing the number of our authorized shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, from 1,750,000,000 to 10,000,000,000, referred to herein as the “Corporate Action.”

 

On August 26, 2022, our Board approved the Corporate Action. To eliminate the costs and management time involved in holding a special meeting of stockholders and to effect the Corporate Action as quickly as possible in order to accomplish the purposes of our Company, we chose to obtain the written consent of the holders of a majority of the Company’s voting power to approve the Corporate Action in accordance with Sections 228 and 242 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”) and our bylaws. On August 29, 2022 (the “Record Date”), the Approving Stockholders approved the Corporate Action by written consent.

 

Since the Board and holders of a majority of the voting power of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of capital stock have voted in favor of the Corporate Action, all corporate actions necessary to approve the amendment increasing the number of our authorized shares of common stock to 10,000,000,000 has been completed. Because the Corporate Action has already been approved by the holders of a majority of the voting power of the Company’s outstanding shares of capital stock, you are not required to take any action. This Information Statement provides notice to you that the Corporate Actions have been approved. You will receive no further notice of the approval nor of the effective date of each of the Corporate Actions other than pursuant to reports which the Company will be required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

NOTICE PURSUANT TO SECTION 228 — Pursuant to Section 228 of the DGCL, we are required to provide prompt notice of the taking of corporate action by written consent to our stockholders who have not consented in writing to such action. This Information Statement serves as the notice required by Section 228 of the DGCL.

THIS IS NOT A NOTICE OF A MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS AND NO STOCKHOLDERS’

MEETING WILL BE HELD TO CONSIDER ANY MATTER DESCRIBED HEREIN. THIS

INFORMATION STATEMENT IS BEING FURNISHED TO YOU SOLELY FOR THE PURPOSE OF

INFORMING YOU OF THE MATTERS DESCRIBED HEREIN.

 

INCREASE IN AUTHORIZED SHARES OF COMMON STOCK

 

The following is a summary of certain matters related to the increase in the number of our authorized shares of common stock from 1,750,000,000 to 10,000,000,000 (the “Authorized Shares Increase”).

 

The effective date of the Authorized Shares Increase will be determined at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors and will be publicly announced. The Authorized Shares Increase will become effective upon the filing of a certificate of amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation relating to the Authorized Shares Increase with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The Board of Directors currently intends for the Authorized Shares Increase to become effective as soon as reasonably practicable in light of applicable regulations.

 

Our Board believes it is in our best interests to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock in order to give us greater flexibility in considering and planning for future corporate needs. In the past and as part of the effort to maintain operations until a more significant capital raising transaction can be completed, our Company completed various transactions pursuant to which we issued substantial amounts of Common Stock and convertible notes and warrants obligating our Company to reserve shares of our authorized Common Stock for future issuance. Consequently, we currently lack a sufficient number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock should the opportunity to raise additional capital become available. Our management believes that the terms on which such equity might be raised will be more favorable to our Company if we have Common Stock available for immediate issuance.

 

In addition to the reasons stated above, our Board believes it is in our Company’s best interests to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock in order to give us greater flexibility in considering and planning for future corporate needs, including, but not limited to, raising capital, potential strategic transactions, including mergers, acquisitions and business combinations, stock dividends, grants under equity compensation plans, stock splits or financings, as well as other general corporate transactions. The Board believes that additional authorized shares of Common Stock are necessary to enable us to take timely advantage of opportunities that may become available to us. Although our management is exploring whether there are opportunities for our Company to raise additional capital to support our ongoing operations, we do not have any definitive plans, arrangements, understandings or agreements regarding the issuance of the additional shares of Common Stock that will result from adoption of the Authorized Share Increase. Except as otherwise required by law, the newly authorized shares of Common Stock will be available for issuance at the discretion of our Board (without further action by the stockholders) for future corporate needs, including those outlined above. While effecting the Authorized Shares Increase would not have any immediate dilutive effect on the proportionate voting power or other rights of existing stockholders, any future issuance of additional authorized shares of our Common Stock may, among other things, dilute the earnings per share of our Common Stock and the equity and voting rights of those holding equity at the time the additional shares are issued. 

 

 4

 

 

Any newly authorized shares of Common Stock will be identical to the shares of Common Stock now authorized and outstanding. The Authorized Share Increase will not affect the rights of current holders of our Common Stock, none of whom have preemptive or similar rights to acquire the newly authorized shares.

 

Effective Time

 

The effective time of the Authorized Shares Increase, if the proposed Authorized Shares Increase is implemented at the direction of the Board, will be the date and time that the certificate of amendment effecting the Authorized Shares Increase is filed with the Delaware Secretary of State or such later time as is specified therein. The exact timing of the Authorized Share Increase will be determined by our Board based on its evaluation as to when such action will be the most advantageous to Touchpoint and its stockholders, and the effective date will be publicly announced. The Authorized Shares Increase may be delayed or abandoned without further action by the stockholders at any time prior to effectiveness of the related certificate of amendment filed with the Delaware Secretary of State, notwithstanding stockholder adoption and approval of the Authorized Shares Increase, if the Board, in its sole discretion, determines that it is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to delay or abandon the Authorized Share Increase.

 

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

The Company is currently authorized to issue 1,750,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock. If the Authorized Shares Increase is effectuated, the Company will be authorized to issue 10,000,000,000 shares of Common Stock. As of the Record Date there were outstanding 1,238,036,037 shares of Common Stock; 10,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock; 204,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock and 600,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred is convertible into 10,000,000 shares of our Common Stock, subject to customary anti-dilution protections in the event of certain corporate events as set forth in the Certificate of Designation establishing the Series A Preferred. The Series B Preferred is convertible into shares of our Common Stock from time to time at a discount to the market price of our Common Stock in accordance with a formula set forth in the Certificate of Designation establishing our Series B Preferred Stock. Each share of Series C Preferred has a Stated Value of $1.00 per share and is convertible into Common Stock at a conversion price of $0.0015 per share, subject to customary anti-dilution protections in the event of certain corporate events as set forth in the Certificate of Designation establishing the Series C Preferred. Except as required by the DGCL, the holders of our Series A Preferred and Series C Preferred are entitled to vote together with the holders of our Common Stock as a single class on all matters as to which stockholders are entitled to vote or act by written consent. Each share of Series A Preferred is entitled to three votes for each share of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such share of Series A Preferred as of the applicable record date. Each share of Series C Preferred is entitled to eight votes for each share of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such share of Series C Preferred as of the applicable record date. The holders of our Series B Preferred have no voting rights.

The following table sets forth certain information regarding beneficial ownership of our Common Stock as of the Record Date by (i) each person (or group of affiliated persons) who is known by us to own more than 5% of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock, (ii) each director and executive officer, and (iii) all of our directors, executive officers and director nominees as a group.

Commencing in December 2021, the Company entered into a series of Securities Purchase Agreements with Talos Victory Fund, LLC; Mast Hill Fund LLP and Quick Capital LLC. Pursuant to each Purchase Agreement, the Company issued to the investor a Convertible Promissory Note, Common Stock Purchase Warrants to purchase shares of the Common Stock of the Company and an agreed upon number of shares of Common Stock. Each Convertible Promissory Note and Common Stock Purchase Warrant issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreements contained a blocker limiting the number of shares that might be acquired upon conversion of a Promissory Note or exercise of a Common Stock Purchase Warrant to such number as would not after giving effect to such issuance cause the holder and its affiliates and any other person acting with the holder or the holder’s affiliates, as a group to exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock outstanding a of the date of conversion or exercise. Further, none of such entities voted in favor of the Corporate Action described in this Information Statement. Consequently, such entities were not included in the Securities Ownership Table above.
