INFORMATION STATEMENT PURSUANT TO SECTION 14(C)

OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934

AND RULE 14C-2 THEREUNDER

_____________________________________________________________

 

November 8, 2019

 

 

Dear Shareholders:

 

The enclosed Information Statement is being furnished to the holders of record of the shares of the Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) of IronClad Encryption Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), as of the close of business on the record date of October 29, 2019 (the “Record Date”). The purpose of this Information Statement is to notify our shareholders that on November 4, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) and the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of the Common Stock adopted resolutions by written consent (the “Consents”) which approve the Company’s amendment of its Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company authorized to be issued, subject to shareholder approval.

 

The Board believes that the amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation is necessary to position the Company to be able to issue additional shares of its Common Stock in the future to finance the Company's growth and that the filing of a Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation (“Certificate of Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of Delaware is beneficial to the Company.  The Board believes that it is in the best interest of the Company to file a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of Delaware to increase the number of shares of the Company's Class A Common Stock authorized to be issued from 6,000,000,000 to a maximum of 50,000,000,000.

 

The Board believes that it is in the best interest of the Company to increase the number of shares of the Company's Class A Common Stock authorized to be issued incrementally in the future up to a maximum of 50,000,000,000 shares as necessary to enable the Company to issue additional shares of its Common Stock. The full text of the Certificate of Amendment to be filed in Delaware is attached as Appendix A to this Information Statement.

 

The enclosed Information Statement is being furnished to you to inform you that the foregoing action has been approved by the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of the voting stock of the Company and the approval of the action taken will become effective on a date that is not earlier than 21 days after this Information Statement is first mailed to our shareholders. The Board is not soliciting your proxy in connection with the adoption of these resolutions and proxies are not requested from shareholders. You are urged to read the Information Statement in its entirety for a description of the action taken by the majority shareholders.

 

The enclosed Information Statement was mailed on or about November 8, 2019 to shareholders of record on the Record Date.

 

WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY AND YOU ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SEND US A PROXY. NO VOTE OR OTHER ACTION OF THE COMPANY’S SHAREHOLDERS IS REQUIRED IN CONNECTION WITH THIS INFORMATION STATEMENT.

 

No action is required by you. The enclosed Information Statement is being furnished to you to inform you that the foregoing action has been approved by the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of all voting stock of the Company.  The approval of the action previously taken will become effective on a date that is not earlier than 21 days after this Information Statement is first mailed to our shareholders.

 

Because shareholders holding at least a majority of the voting rights of our outstanding Common Stock have voted in favor of the foregoing action, and such shareholders have sufficient voting power to approve such action through their ownership of the Common Stock, no other shareholder consent will be solicited in connection with the matter described in this Information Statement. The Board is not soliciting your proxy in connection with the adoption of these resolutions pursuant to the Consents, and proxies are not requested from shareholders.  Our shareholders are not entitled to appraisal rights under the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, bylaws or Delaware corporate law with respect to the actions taken.


DISTRIBUTION AND COSTS

 

We will pay all costs associated with the distribution of the Information Statement, including the costs of printing and mailing.  In addition, we will only deliver one Information Statement to multiple security holders sharing an address, unless we have received contrary instructions from one or more of the security holders.
