On or around May 1, 2019, the Company mailed a Consent Solicitation Statement to its shareholders as of the record date of April 5, 2019 (the “Record Date”), seeking the written consent of the shareholders holding a majority of the Company’s voting equity to authorize and approve a proposal to file the Charter Amendment, in order to the amend the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to increase the Company’s number of authorized shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), from 200,000,000 shares to 500,000,000 shares. The filing of the Charter Amendment was previously authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors on April 4, 2019, subject to stockholder approval.
As of the Record Date, the Company had 141,069,910 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding. Therefore, the Company needed written consents from shareholders holding at least 70,534,956 votes in order to proceed with filing the Charter Amendment with the Florida Secretary of State.
The holders of the Company’s Common Stock as of the Record Date were given until May 31, 2019 to return their written consents. As of May 31, 2019, the Company had received the following written consents:
|Votes For: 80,652,072||Votes Against: 3,270,557||Abstain: 344,500|
As a result, as of May 31, 2019, the Company had received a sufficient number of written consents in favor of proposal to file the Charter Amendment.
|Item 8.01.||Additional Events.|
As previously reported, on February 22, 2019 and March 22, 2019, the Company sold an aggregate of 800,000 shares of the Company’s 10% Series A convertible preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Series A Preferred Stock”), to two purchasers. In connection with these transactions, each of the purchasers were also entitled to receive an additional 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. Pursuant to the Company’s charter documents, the holders of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock have the right to vote together with the holders of the Company’s Common Stock on an as-converted basis, with five votes for each share of Series A Preferred Stock. Neither the 800,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, nor the additional 4,000,000 shares of Common Stock, were issued to the purchasers prior to the Record Date. Therefore, these shares were not included for the purposes of obtaining written consents as described in Item 5.07 above.
