On May 17, 2021, Assertio Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Initial 8-K”) to report the voting results for all proposals (other than Proposals 2 and 3) brought before the Company’s previously adjourned 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held virtually on May 11, 2021 (the “Annual Meeting”). This Amendment No. 1 amends the Initial 8-K to disclose the voting results with respect to Proposals 2 and 3 described under Item 5.07 below.
|Item 5.07||Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders|
On June 9, 2021, the Company resumed the Annual Meeting, which had been previously adjourned with respect to Proposals 2 and 3. The results of the stockholder votes on Proposals 2 and 3 brought before the Annual Meeting were as follows:
Proposal 2: To approve an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse stock split and proportionally reduce the number of authorized shares of common stock. The votes on Proposal 2 were as follows:
Proposal 3: To approve an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 200,000,000 to 300,000,000 shares. The votes on Proposal 3 were as follows:
Accordingly, Proposals 2 and 3 were not approved because the votes “For” each of the proposals represented less than a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock as of the record date for the Annual Meeting.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
