Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
To the extent required by Item 3.03 of Form 8-K, the information contained in Item 5.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Current Report”) is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 5.03
Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On December 21, 2023, ToughBuilt Industries, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “
”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended (the “
Certificate of Amendmen
t”), with the Secretary of State of Nevada to effect a 1-for-65 reverse stock split of the shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “
Common Stock
”), issued and outstanding, effective as of 4:30 p.m. (New York time) on January 1, 2024, (the “
Reverse Stock Split
”). As previously reported by the Company, the Company held the Annual  Stockholders’ Meeting on December 11, 2023 (the “
Annual Meeting
”), at which meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved the amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended (the “
Articles of Incorporation
”), to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock at a ratio in the range of 1-for-20 to 1-for-100, with such ratio to be determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “
”) and included in a public announcement. Following the Annual Meeting, the Board determined to effect the Reverse Stock Split at a ratio of 1-for-65 and approved the corresponding final form of the Certificate of Amendment.
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every sixty-five (65) shares of issued and outstanding Common Stock will be automatically combined into one (1) issued and outstanding share of Common Stock. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Any fractional shares that would otherwise have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the next whole number. The Reverse Stock Split will reduce the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding from 36,915,222 shares to approximately 567,927 shares, subject to adjustment for the rounding up of fractional shares. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock under the Articles of Incorporation will remain unchanged at 200 million (200,000,000) shares and the par value of the Common Stock will remain $0.0001 per share.
The Common Stock will begin trading on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis on The Nasdaq Capital Market on January 2, 2024. The trading symbol for the Common Stock will remain “TBLT.” The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 89157G 86 8.
Proportionate adjustments will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock that may be purchased upon exercise of outstanding stock options granted by the Company, and the number of shares of Common Stock reserved for future issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans.
The Company will also adjust the number of shares available for issuance upon the exercise of outstanding warrants to issue Common Stock as well as the exercise price to reflect the effects of the Reverse Stock Split. 
The information set forth herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Certificate of Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated by reference herein.
