DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”), today announced results of the adjourned 2019 Annual Meeting of the Company’s Stockholders (the “Adjourned Annual Meeting”), which was held at 9:00 a.m. on July 19, 2019 and at which time Proposals 5 and 7 were approved by stockholders.
On July 2, 2019, the Company announced that it adjourned the initial annual meeting held on July 2, 2019 with respect to Proposal 5 (to approve a reverse stock split of our common stock by a ratio of not less than one-for-5 and not more than one-for-40, with the exact ratio to be set by the board of directors) and Proposal 7 (to approve an amendment to our 2018 Stock Incentive Plan, which would, among other things, have increased the number of shares of our common stock that may be issued thereunder to a total of 7,000,000 shares), in each case for the limited purpose of allowing additional time for stockholders to vote on the proposal.
At the Adjourned Annual Meeting, Proposal 5 passed with more than 50% of the votes of all issued and outstanding shares of capital stock having been cast in its favor. The Board has not decided when to effectuate the reverse stock split nor has it determined what the ratio will be. Any Board action on the foregoing matters will depend on market conditions, specifically the market price of its common stock, and whether that market price is in compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in the NYSE American Company Guide. However, even if no reverse stock split is explicitly required to remain in compliance with the Company Guide, the Board may determine to implement it based on other factors.
While Proposal 7 did not, unlike Proposal 5, require approval of more than 50% of all outstanding shares of our capital stock for the proposal to be approved, it did require that more votes be cast for the proposal than votes cast against it. Approximately 50% of the votes were cast in favor of Proposal 7, whereas approximately 49% of such votes were cast against it.
“I appreciate the substantial stockholder support for both Proposal 5 and Proposal 7,” said Milton “Todd” Ault, III, Chief Executive Officer of DPW.
