This Supplement to Proxy Statement (this “Supplemental Proxy Statement”), which supplements the Definitive Proxy Statement filed by Advaxis, Inc. (the “Company”) on February 28, 2022 (the “Definitive Proxy Statement”), includes additional information about how to vote regarding Proposal No. 1 to be voted on at the Company’s Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for March 31, 2022 (the “Special Meeting”).


The following disclosure is added to supplement the disclosure appearing on page 5 of the Definitive Proxy Statement, and will appear immediately above “May I change my vote?”




Q: Will choosing not to vote my shares have the same effect as casting a vote against Proposal No. 1?


A: No. If you prefer that Proposal No. 1 not be approved, you should cast your vote against the proposal. Approval of Proposal No. 1 requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding voting power of Advaxis Common Stock and Preferred Stock entitled to vote on the proposal, voting as a single class, assuming a quorum is present. Since the Preferred Stock has 30,000 votes per share on Proposal No. 1, the failure of a share of Common Stock to be voted will effectively have no impact on the outcome of the vote. However, votes of the shares of Preferred Stock, when cast, are automatically voted in a manner that “mirrors” the proportions on which the shares of Common Stock (excluding any shares of Common Stock that are not voted) are voted on Proposal No. 1. Therefore, shares of Common Stock voted against the proposal will have the effect of causing the proportion of Preferred Stock voted against the proposal to increase accordingly and vice versa.




The Special Meeting will be held entirely online. You will be able to attend and participate in the Special Meeting online by visiting http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ADXS2022SM on March 31, 2022, beginning at 10:00 am, local time.
