Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On October 6, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Salt Blockchain, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the Second Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company (the “Second A&R Bylaws”). The Second A&R Bylaws include, among other things, the following amendments:
an advance notice provision for stockholders proposals, including direction nominations;
a change to the voting threshold for the election of directors from a plurality standard to a majority standard, such that a majority of the votes cast shall be sufficient to elect a director to the Board at a stockholder meeting called or convened for the election of directors; provided, that, for contested elections, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast. In the event a director nominated for re-election fails to receive more votes cast for such director’s re-election than against re-election, such director must promptly tender the director’s resignation for the Board’s consideration. The nominating and corporate governance committee (or other committee designated by the Board) will make a recommendation to the Board as to whether to accept or reject the tendered resignation. The Board will then have 60 days to act on such recommendation. If such resigning director’s tendered resignation is not accepted, such director will continue to serve on the Board; and
the designation of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware as the sole and exclusive forum for any actions or proceedings relating to (a) stockholder derivative actions, (b) claims of breach of duty owed by any director or officer to the Company, (c) claims against the Company or its directors and officers arising out of or relating to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law or the Company’s certificate of incorporation or Second A&R Bylaws, or (d) claims peculiar to the relationships between or among the Company and its directors, officers and stockholders. In addition, the Second A&R Bylaws require that the exclusive forum for any claims asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, will be the federal district courts of the United States of America.
The foregoing description of the amendments made in the Second A&R Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Second A&R Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
