Item 5.07Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On August 12, 2022, Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (the “Company”) held its annual meeting of stockholders virtually (the “Meeting”), to consider proposals described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 7, 2022 (as amended or supplemented, the “Proxy Statement”). At the Meeting, stockholders holding and entitled to vote 89,771,636 shares of common stock of the Company (“Common Stock”), or approximately 60% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, and 3,000 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (“Series C Preferred”), constituting 100% of the outstanding shares of Series C Preferred and with each share of Series C Preferred entitled to 1,000,000 votes per shares with respect to Proposal 2 and Proposal 6 to be considered at the Meeting, on the record date for the Meeting, were present either by attendance via live webcast or by proxy. At the Meeting, the stockholders voted on the proposals as described below, each of which is described in the Proxy Statement.

The final results for each of the matters voted on at the Meeting were as follows:

1.       Election of the five nominees to the board of directors:

  Votes For Votes Withheld Broker Non-Votes
Howard C. Birndorf 25,975,874 28,365,217 35,430,545
Meera J. Desai, Ph.D., NACD.DC 31,775,788 22,565,303 35,430,545
David J. Marguglio 28,198,964 26,142,127 35,430,545
Vickie S. Reed 31,511,658 22,829,433 35,430,545
Richard C. Williams 24,952,496 29,388,595 35,430,545

 

Each director nominee was elected to serve as a director until the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders in 2023, or until such person’s successor is duly elected and qualified or until such person’s earlier resignation, death, or removal. Due to plurality election, votes could only be cast in favor of or withheld from the nominees and thus votes against were not applicable.

2.       Adopt and approve a proposed amendment to the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), in its sole discretion, to effect a reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of Common Stock at any time on or before December 31, 2022, at a reverse stock split ratio ranging from 1-for-2 to 1-for-15, as determined by the Board at a later date (the “Reverse Stock Split Proposal”).

With respect to Proposal No. 2 contained in the Proxy Statement, the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, the Meeting was adjourned before voting on the proposal in order to allow the Company additional time to solicit proxies for the proposal. The meeting was adjourned until September 8, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Stockholders will be able to listen and participate in the adjourned meeting as well as vote with respect to Proposal No. 2 and submit questions during the live webcast by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ADMP2022. Stockholders will need the control number found on their proxy card or in the instructions that accompanied their proxy materials to participate in the virtual meeting. Only stockholders of record on the record date of July 6, 2022, are entitled to vote.

Exhibit 99.1

 

Adamis Pharmaceuticals Announces Results of Annual Meeting of Stockholders

 

Meeting adjourned only with respect to reverse stock split proposal until September 8, 2022

 

SAN DIEGO, August 12, 2022-- Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP) today announced that its 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (“Annual Meeting”) was convened, as scheduled. At the Annual Meeting, all items of business were considered, with the exception of Proposal 2, the proposal to adopt and approve a proposed amendment to the company’s restated certificate of incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors, in its discretion, to effect a reverse stock split of Adamis’ outstanding shares of common stock at any time on or before December 31, 2022, as further described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement and any supplements thereto (the “Reverse Stock Split Proposal”). Adamis expects to file the voting results regarding the other proposals considered today at the Annual Meeting on a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission no later than August 18, 2022.

 

At the Annual Meeting, approximately 60% of the Company’s outstanding common shares and 100% of the Company’s outstanding preferred shares were represented in person or by proxy. Of the matters presented for stockholder vote: all director nominees proposed for election in the Company’s definitive proxy statement were elected, stockholders voted against the proposed amendment to the Company’s 2020 Equity Incentive Plan, stockholders voted against approving the compensation of our named executive officers, the selection of BDO USA, LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was ratified, and the stockholders approved the proposal to adjourn the Annual Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies if there were insufficient votes at the time of the Annual Meeting to adopt the Reverse Stock Split Proposal.

 

Based on feedback from Adamis stockholders related to the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, the independent members of the Adamis Board believe it is in the best interests of its stockholders to extend the opportunity for stockholders to vote on this important matter. Therefore, the meeting was adjourned to allow additional time for stockholders to submit proxies with respect to the Reverse Stock Split Proposal. The Annual Meeting will be reconvened on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (the sole matter of business before the reconvened Annual Meeting will be the Reverse Stock Split Proposal).

 

The Adamis Board has determined, based on feedback from stockholders, that it is necessary and appropriate to further clarify the Board’s intentions with respect to the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, in particular related to (i) the timing for determining whether to implement a reverse stock split, and (ii) if the Board determines to effect a reverse stock split, the criteria the Board anticipates using to select a split ratio. The Board intends to directly communicate a message to stockholders in the next few days to provide additional clarification on both points. The Board members believe that maintaining the Company’s continued listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market is of fundamental importance, and therefore, allowing additional time for stockholders to meaningfully participate in the vote on a fully informed basis better represents their interests.

 

 
 

 

Adamis will continue to solicit proxies from stockholders with respect to the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, and electronic voting platforms are expected to remain open. If you either did not vote, or previously voted against the reverse split proposal, the Board of Directors urges you to reconsider your vote. The Board recommends that stockholders vote “FOR” the Reverse Stock Split Proposal. Stockholders will be able to listen and participate in the adjourned meeting as well as vote and submit questions during the live webcast by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ADMP2022. Stockholders will need the control number found on their proxy card or in the instructions that accompanied their proxy materials to participate in the virtual meeting. Only stockholders of record on the record date of July 6, 2022, are entitled to vote.

 

Adamis encourages any eligible stockholder that has not yet voted their shares or provided voting instructions to their broker or other record holders to do so promptly. Stockholders who need help voting their shares may call Adamis’ proxy solicitor, Saratoga Advisors, toll free at (888) 368-0379 or (212) 257-1311.
