Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


As previously disclosed on February 15, 2023, Amesite Inc (the “Company”) held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”). At the Special Meeting, the stockholders approved a proposal to amend the Company’s 2018 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”) to (i) increase the number of shares available for issuance under the 2018 Plan by 3,000,000 shares and (ii) increase the amount of shares that may be issued pursuant to the exercise of incentive stock options by 3,000,000 shares. A copy of the First Amendment to the 2018 Plan is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1


A summary description of the terms of the 2018 Plan, as amended, is set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 23, 2023 (the “Proxy Statement”). The section of the Proxy Statement entitled, “Proposal 2: Amendment to the 2018 Incentive Plan” from page 13 through 17 is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year


At the Special Meeting, the stockholders also approved a proposal to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse split of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 at a specific ratio within a range of one-for five (1-for-5) to a maximum of one-for-fifty (1-for-50) to be determined by the Company’s board of directors in its sole discretion.


Following the Special Meeting, the board of directors approved a one-for-twelve (1-for-12) reverse split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). On February 21, 2023, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a certificate of amendment to its certificate of incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to effect the Reverse Stock Split. The Reverse Stock Split became effective as of 4:01 p.m. Eastern Time on February 21, 2023, and the Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the Nasdaq Stock Market opens on February 22, 2023.


When the Reverse Stock Split becomes effective, every twelve (12) shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will automatically be combined, converted and changed into one (1) share the Company’s common stock, without any change in the number of authorized shares or the par value per share. In addition, a proportionate adjustment will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding stock options, restricted stock units and warrants to purchase shares of common stock and the number of shares reserved for issuance pursuant to the company’s equity incentive compensation plans. Any fraction of a share of common stock that would be created as a result of the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the next whole share. Holders of the Company’s common stock held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee do not need to take any action in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders of record will be receiving information from the Company’s transfer agent regarding their common stock ownership post-Reverse Stock Split.


The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC under the existing symbol “AMST”, but the security has been assigned a new CUSIP number (031094204).


The foregoing description of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate of Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.


Item 8.01 Other Events.


On February 21, 2023, the Company issued a press release announcing the Reverse Stock Split. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.
