Item 3.03 - Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders
On January 4, 2023, the Board of Directors of
Aytu BioPharma, Inc. (“the Company” or “Aytu”) approved a 1-for-20 reverse stock
split of the Company's common stock, which will be effective at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, January 6, 2023
pursuant to a Certificate of Amendment (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to the Company’s Certificate of
Incorporation. The Company's stockholders approved the reverse stock split at an Annual Meeting of Stockholders on October 5,
2022. The Company's shares will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market commencing upon market open on
January 6, 2023. A copy of the Certificate of Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by
reference. This discussion is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate of Amendment.
As a result of the reverse split, every 20
shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and converted into one issued and
outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share. The Company will not issue any fractional shares in connection with
the reverse stock split. Instead, the number of shares will be rounded down to the next whole number, and Aytu will pay cash to each
stockholder in lieu of any fractional interest in a share to which each stockholder would otherwise be entitled as a result of the
reverse stock split. The reverse stock split will not modify the rights or preferences of the common stock.
Immediately after the reverse stock split
becomes effective, there will be approximately 3.4 million shares of common stock issued and outstanding. The common shares will
trade under a new CUSIP number, 054754858, effective January 6, 2023, and will continue to trade under the symbol
“AYTU.” All stock options and warrants of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the reverse stock split will
be proportionally adjusted.
The Company has appointed its transfer agent, Issuer
Direct, to act as exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Stockholders owning shares via a bank, broker or other nominee will have
their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split and will not be required to take further action in connection
with the reverse stock split, subject to brokers' particular processes.
