Authorized Capital Stock
Our authorized capital stock consists of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Preferred Stock”), the rights and preferences of which may be established from time to time by our board of directors. As of March 9, 2020, we had 39,484,420 shares of Common Stock outstanding and no shares of Preferred Stock outstanding.
Voting. For all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders, each holder of Common Stock is entitled to one vote for each share registered in his or her name on our books. Our Common Stock does not have cumulative voting rights. As a result, holders of a majority of our outstanding Common Stock can elect all of the directors who are up for election in a particular year.
Dividends. If our board of directors declares a dividend, holders of Common Stock will receive payments from our funds that are legally available to pay dividends. However, this dividend right is subject to any preferential dividend rights we may grant to the persons who hold preferred stock, if any is outstanding.
Liquidation and Dissolution. If we are liquidated or dissolve, the holders of our Common Stock will be entitled to the right to receive ratably, all of the assets and funds that remain after we pay our liabilities and any amounts we may owe to the persons who hold preferred stock, if any is outstanding.
Other Rights and Restrictions. Holders of our Common Stock do not have preemptive or subscription rights, and they have no right to convert their Common Stock into any other securities. Our Common Stock is not subject to redemption by us. The rights, preferences and privileges of common stockholders are subject to the rights of the stockholders of any series of preferred stock which we may designate in the future. Our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws do not restrict the ability of a holder of Common Stock to transfer his or her shares of Common Stock.
Listing. Our Common Stock is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “SMSI.”
Transfer Agent and Registrar. The transfer agent and registrar for our Common Stock is Computershare Inc.
Delaware Law Affecting Business Combinations. We are subject to the provisions of Section 203 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Subject to certain exceptions, Section 203 prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging in a “business combination” with an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years after the person became an interested stockholder, unless the business combination is approved in a prescribed manner. A “business combination” includes mergers, asset sales and other transactions resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. Subject to exceptions, an “interested stockholder” is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, owns, or within the prior three years did own, 15% or more of the corporation’s voting stock.
