AIkido Pharma Inc. Announces Results of 2020 Annual Stockholder Meeting

New York 11/20/2020 10:00:00 PM

All stockholder proposals were approved other than the authority for a reverse stock spilt

The meeting was adjourned to allow more time to collect votes on the reverse stock split

The Company urges stockholders to vote

AIkido Pharma Inc. (the "Company" or "AIkido") (NASDAQ: AIKI) today announced the results from the virtual 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Meeting") held on November 17, 2020 (the "Meeting").

All proposals that were presented to the stockholders were approved at the Meeting, except for the proposal to amend the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock (the "Common Stock") at a ratio of up to one-for-ten (the "Amendment Proposal"). Accordingly, the Company adjourned the Meeting to allow more time for stockholders to consider the Amendment Proposal. The adjournment of the Meeting will preserve the September 24, 2020 record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive notice of and vote at the upcoming adjourned meeting to be held at 12:00 p.m. on December 4, 2020.

The detailed voting results for the Meeting are provided in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on November 20, 2020.

The Company urges all stockholders who have not yet voted to vote in favor of the Amendment Proposal. Approval of the Amendment Proposal and the resulting reverse stock split is critical. The primary objective of the reverse stock split is to raise the per share trading price of the Common Stock to comply with the Nasdaq minimum share price listing rule to allow the Company to continue to list on Nasdaq. The higher stock price resulting from the reverse stock split and the listing of the Common Stock on Nasdaq is important for the marketability of the Common Stock to the financial community and investing public. If the reverse stock split is not effectuated, it could limit the number of potential buyers of the Common Stock as many institutional investors have policies prohibiting them from holding lower-priced stocks in their portfolios. Also, brokerage houses frequently have internal practices and policies that discourage individual brokers from dealing in lower-priced stocks. Top proxy advisory firms ISS and Glass Lewis, who together provide voting recommendations on stockholder meetings to a majority of institutional stockholders, both recommend a "FOR" vote for this proposal in order to maintain listing on Nasdaq.
