NAPLES, Fla., May 3, 2022 /CNW/ – Enveric Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ: ENVB) (“Enveric” or the “Company”), a neuroscience-focused biotechnology company developing next-generation, psychedelic-inspired mental health medicines, today announced that its Board of Directors declared a dividend of one one-thousandth of a share of newly-designated Series C Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, for each outstanding share of Enveric common stock held of record as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 13, 2022. The outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock will vote together with the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, as a single class, exclusively with respect to a proposal to increase the number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock, a proposal giving the Board of Directors the authority, as it determines appropriate, to implement a reverse stock split within twelve months following the approval of such proposal by the Company’s stockholders, as well as any proposal to adjourn any meeting of stockholders called for the purpose of voting on the foregoing matters, and will not be entitled to vote on any other matter, except to the extent required under the Delaware General Corporation Law. Subject to certain limitations, each outstanding share of Series C Preferred Stock will have 1,000,000 votes per share (or 1,000 votes per one one-thousandth of a share of Series C Preferred Stock).
All shares of Series C Preferred Stock that are not present in person or by proxy at the meeting of stockholders held to vote on the above described proposals as of immediately prior to the opening of the polls at such meeting will automatically be redeemed by the Company. Any outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock that have not been so redeemed will be redeemed if such redemption is ordered by Enveric’s Board of Directors or automatically upon the approval by Enveric’s stockholders of the above described proposals.
The Series C Preferred Stock will be uncertificated, and no shares of Series C Preferred Stock will be transferable by any holder thereof except in connection with a transfer by such holder of any shares of the Company’s common stock held by such holder. In that case, a number of one one-thousandths of a share of Series C Preferred Stock equal to the number of shares of Enveric’s common stock to be transferred by such holder would be transferred to the transferee of such shares of common stock.
Further details regarding the Series C Preferred Stock will be contained in a report on Form 8-K to be filed by Enveric with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
