Note 14 — Stockholders’ Equity

 

Common Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue 250,000,000 shares of common stock. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there were 25,685,981 and 14,471,403 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, respectively.

 

On January 29, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), the Company consummated the closing of a private placement offering of $3,300,000 whereby pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement entered into by the Company on January 28, 2021 with BHP Capital NY Inc (the “Investor”), the Company issued 1,500,000 shares of restricted common stock and a five (5) year warrant to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, warrant shares of 880,798 were exercised and the Company received net proceeds of $1,690,604.

 

Preferred Stock

 

On February 2, 2021, the Company filed an Amendment to the Certificate of Designation (the “Amendment”) for the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (“Preferred Stock”). Under the Amendment, each share of Preferred Stock shall entitle the holder thereof to vote on all matters voted on by the holders of Common Stock, voting together as a single class with other shares entitled to vote at all meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation. With respect to any such vote, each share of Preferred Stock shall entitle the holder thereof to cast the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Preferred Stock are then convertible (the “Conversion Shares”). Such right may be exercised at any annual meeting or special meeting, or pursuant to any written consent of stockholders.

 

On October 16, 2020, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation (the “Designation”) with the Secretary of State of Nevada, which designates 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, as Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series B”). Pursuant to the terms of the Designation, holders of the Series B shall be entitled to dividends, a liquidation preference and shall have conversion rights. Each share of Series B shall be convertible into 1 share of Common Stock, on or after the twelve-month anniversary of the Original Issue Date at the option of the Holder thereof, for a total not to exceed 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock. The holders of the Series B shall have no voting rights.

 

On March 25, 2020, the Company filed a certificate of amendment to the Company’s articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada in order to: (i) increase the number of shares of the Company’s authorized preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, from 0 shares to 30,000,000 shares of preferred stock; (ii) clarify the application of the forum selection clause in the Company’s amended and restated articles of incorporation, specifically that such clause does not apply to federal causes of actions arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”); and (iii) include affirmative changes to correspond to the Company’s First Amended and Restated Bylaws, confirming that the Company’s shareholders may vote by written consent.

 

The Company is authorized to issue 30,000,000 shares of preferred stock. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there were 764,618 and 764,618 shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, respectively.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

On September 6, 2018, the Company’s board of directors approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s omnibus incentive plan solely to reflect the Company’s name change to Edison Nation, Inc. Thus, the Edison Nation, Inc. Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) which remains effective as of February 9, 2018, provides for the issuance of up to 1,764,705 (287,659 remaining as of March 31, 2021) shares of common stock to help align the interests of management and our stockholders and reward our executive officers for improved Company performance. Stock incentive awards under the Plan can be in the form of stock options, restricted stock units, performance awards and restricted stock that are made to employees, directors and service providers. Awards are subject to forfeiture until vesting conditions have been satisfied under the terms of the award. The exercise price of stock options is equal to the fair market value of the underlying Company common stock on the date of grant.

 

The following table summarizes stock option awards outstanding at March 31, 2021:
