Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 12, 2018, Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (the “Company”) held a meeting of its board of directors. The matters voted on and approved at the meeting included an amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to decrease the number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.00001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”) from 7,500,000,000 to 100,000,000 shares and to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock at a ratio of 1-for-75 (the “Reverse Stock Split”).
On June 8, 2018, the Company filed Articles of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation (the “Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida to decrease the number of authorized shares of the Company’s Common Stock from 7,500,000,000 to 100,000,000 and to effect a 1-for-75 reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock. The Reverse Stock Split became effective at 12:01 a.m. on July 9, 2018. A copy of the Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, each seventy-five (75) shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock has been automatically combined and converted into one (1) issued and outstanding share of Common Stock. The Reverse Stock Split has affected all issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, as well as Common Stock underlying stock options, warrants and other convertible securities outstanding immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Reverse Stock Split. The Reverse Stock Split has reduced the number of outstanding shares of the Common Stock outstanding prior to the Reverse Stock Split from 4,078,179,672 shares to 54,377,316 shares immediately following the stock split.
No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, and any such stockholders whose number of post-split shares would result in a fractional number will have his/her/its shares rounded up to the next number of shares.
ClearTrust, LLC is acting as exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split and will send instructions to stockholders of record who hold stock certificates regarding the exchange of their old certificates for new certificates, should they wish to do so. Stockholders who hold their shares in brokerage accounts or “street name” are not required to take any action to effect the exchange of their shares.
On July 6, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the Reverse Stock Split. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
