Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.


To the extent required by Item 3.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”), the information contained in Item 5.03 of this Report is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.


On May 1, 2023, Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to its certificate of incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), to effect a one-for-one thousand reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of its outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), effective as of May 1, 2023. In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, the Company submitted an issuer company-related action notification form to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) notifying FINRA of the Reverse Stock Split. The processing of the effects of the Reverse Stock Split by FINRA on the reported price of the Common Stock on the Pink® Open Market operated by the OTC Markets Group Inc. will occur at the time that the Reverse Stock Split is announced by FINRA on its over-the-counter daily list, which has not occurred as of the date of this Report.


As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Common Stock has been assigned a new CUSIP number (74346N602). The Reverse Stock Split does not affect the total number of shares of capital stock, including the Common Stock, that the Company is authorized to issue, or the par value of the Common Stock, which shall remain as set forth pursuant to the Certificate of Incorporation. No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split, all of which were rounded up to the nearest whole number. The Company’s outstanding warrants and equity awards will be adjusted as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, as required by the terms of such warrants and equity awards.


Securities Transfer Corporation, the Company’s transfer agent, will send instructions to stockholders of record who hold stock certificates regarding the exchange of any Common Stock certificates in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who hold their shares of Common Stock in book-entry form or in brokerage accounts or “street name” are not required to take any action to effect the exchange of their shares of Common Stock following the Reverse Stock Split.


The foregoing summary of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate of Amendment, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.





Forward-Looking Statements


This Report contains, and may implicate, forward-looking statements regarding the Company, and include cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that express the Company’s intentions, beliefs, expectations, strategies, predictions or any other statements related to the Company’s future activities, or future events or conditions. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company’s business based, in part, on assumptions made by its management. These statements are not guarantees of future performances and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements due to numerous factors, including those risks discussed in documents that the Company files from time to time with the SEC. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Report, except as required by law.
