SAN DIEGO, Sept. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP) today announced the results of its reconvened 2020 annual meeting of stockholders which was initially held August 20, 2020, and was adjourned until September 3, 2020. At the reconvened meeting, the stockholders voted on a proposal to approve an amendment to the company’s restated certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock, and a proposal to approve an amendment to the company’s restated certificate of incorporation to implement a reverse stock split of the outstanding common stock, if the board of directors in its discretion determines to implement a reverse stock split as described in the company’s proxy statement relating to the meeting.
A majority of the outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote at the meeting approved the proposal to amend the company’s restated certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock by 100 million shares and the proposal was approved. The company has filed a certificate of amendment to its restated certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares from 100 million to 200 million shares of common stock. Other than the conversion of one million preferred shares into an equal number of shares of common stock, the filing will not impact the number of shares of common stock currently outstanding.
Although the reverse stock split proposal was approved by a majority of the votes cast at the meeting, it did not receive approval by a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote at the meeting. As a result, the reverse stock split proposal was not approved, and the Board of Directors will now take no further action to implement a reverse stock split.
Dr. Dennis J. Carlo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Adamis Pharmaceuticals, stated, “We are pleased with the outcome of the annual meeting and most appreciative of the efforts of our shareholders to participate in the process. We now eagerly look ahead to what we expect to be an approval and a commercial launch of ZIMHI before year end.”
