Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws


As discussed under Item 5.07 of Advaxis, Inc.’s (the “Company”) Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 1, 2022, on March 31, 2022, at the Company’s Special Meeting of Stockholders, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amendment”) to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, within a specified range and at the discretion of the Board of Directors.


Pursuant to such authority granted by the Company’s stockholders, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a one-for-80 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of its common stock. The Reverse Stock Split became effective upon filing of the Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware at 12:00am Eastern Time on June 6, 2022.


The Reverse Stock Split reduced the number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding from approximately 145.6 million to approximately 1.8 million. To reflect the Reverse Stock Split, proportional adjustments were made to the Company’s outstanding stock options, warrants to purchase shares of common stock and other equity awards. The Reverse Stock Split did not affect the par value per share of the Company’s common stock or the total number of shares of common stock that the Company is authorized to issue pursuant to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended. Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, will act as exchange agent for purposes of any exchanges of stock certificates requested to reflect the Reverse Stock Split.


The description of the Amendment and the Reverse Stock Split is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 8.01 Other Events


On June 3, 2022, the Company issued a press release announcing the Reverse Stock Split. The Company’s press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this current report and is incorporated herein by reference.
