The Corporation does hereby further certify that this amendment was duly adopted by the Corporation’s Board of Directors in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 607.10025 of the Florida Business Corporation Act of the State of Florida. The Corporation’s Board of Directors adopted this amendment on December 22, 2022. This amendment shall become effective on January 20, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. (the “Effective Time”). The Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation of the Corporation, as amended, are amended as follows:
The first paragraph of Article II of the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended, shall be deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
“Capital Stock: The aggregate number of shares of all classes of capital stock which this Corporation shall have authority to issue is 54,166,666 shares, consisting of (i) 4,166,666 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) and (ii) 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock, no par value (“Preferred Stock”).”
At the Effective Time, each sixty (60) shares of the Corporation’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (the “Old Common Stock”) (including the number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of all issued and outstanding, options, warrants and convertible securities of every kind, including all options, shares outstanding and authorized for issuance under the Corporation’s 2021 Equity Incentive Plan) will automatically and without any action on the part of the respective holders thereof, be combined and reclassified into one (1) shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “New Common Stock”) (and such combination and conversion, the “Reverse Stock Split”). Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, no fractional shares of New Common Stock shall be issued to the holders of record of Old Common Stock in connection with the Reverse Stock Split and each fractional share resulting from the Reverse Stock Split shall be automatically rounded up to the nearest whole number. Each stock certificate that, immediately prior to the Effective Time, represented shares of Old Common Stock shall, from and after the Effective Time, automatically and without the necessity of presenting the same for exchange, represent that number of whole shares of New Common Stock into which the shares of Old Common Stock represented by such certificate shall have been reclassified, provided, however, that each holder of record of a certificate that represented shares of Old Common Stock shall receive, upon surrender of such certificate, a new certificate representing the number of whole shares of New Common Stock into which the shares of Old Common Stock represented by such certificate shall have been reclassified.
The amendment to the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation does not adversely affect the rights or preferences of the holders of outstanding shares of any class or series and does not result in the percentage of authorized shares that remain unissued after the division or combination exceeding the percentage of authorized shares that were unissued before the division or combination. The remainder of the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended, shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned, the President of the Corporation, has executed these Articles of Amendment this 11th day of January, 2023.
