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. As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there were 0 shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding, respectively. Please see Note 11 — Subsequent Events for further information.


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 Vinco Ventures, Inc. Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) which remains effective as of February 9, 2018, provides for the issuance of up to 1,764,705 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.


On July 15, 2020, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-8 registering 1,764,705 shares of common stock to be issued as stock-based incentives under the Company’s Amended and Restated Edison Nation, Inc. Omnibus Incentive Plan.
