Item 5.07

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On September 2, 2020, Superconductor Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “our”) held its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). Presented below are the voting results for the proposals submitted to our stockholders at the Annual Meeting, which are further described in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2020, the relevant portions of which are incorporated herein by reference. 

At of the close of business on August 7, 2020, the record date for the Annual Meeting, a total of 31,517,833 shares of our common stock were outstanding and entitled to vote at our Annual Meeting. The number of shares present or represented by valid proxy at the Annual Meeting was 18,121,849 shares or 57.5% of our common stock entitled to vote. Therefore, a quorum was present for the purposes of the Annual Meeting.

 

Proposal 1   

Election of Class 1 Director

 

The stockholders elected Jeffrey a. Quiram as a Class 1 director to serve until the annual meeting of stockholders in 2023 with the following vote:

 

Nominee   Votes For   Votes Withheld
Jeffrey A. Quiram   7,704,744   291,544

 

Proposal 2   

Appointment of Marcum LLP as Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

The appointment of Marcum LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2020 was ratified with the following vote:

 

For   Against   Abstain   Broker Non-votes
16,889,569   772,364   459,916  

 

Proposal 4   

Approval of any adjournments of our Annual Meeting

 

The stockholders approved any adjournments of our annual meeting for the purpose of soliciting additional proxies in favor of the reverse stock split :

 

For   Against   Abstain   Broker Non-votes
12,274,850   5,551,344   295,655  

 

Proposal 3   

Approval to effect a reverse stock split

 

At the time of the Annual Meeting, there were insufficient votes to pass proposal 3 to authorize the Reverse Stock Split. On the basis of the passage of proposal 4, approving any adjournment of the Annual Meeting to solicit additional votes for proposal 3, the Annual Meeting was adjourned to 9:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time on September 3, 2020 at the Hill Country Galleria, Bee Cave, Texas 78738 to allow additional time for stockholders to submit their votes on proposal 3. At such adjournment, there were still insufficient votes to pass proposal 3, and therefore, on the basis of the passage of proposal 4, the meeting was adjourned again and will reconvene at 9:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time on September 8, 2020 at the Hill Country Galleria, Bee Cave, Texas 78738. During the period of adjournment, the Company will continue to accept stockholder votes on proposal 3.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events.

The information set forth in the last paragraph of Item 5.07 regarding the adjourned Annual Meeting is incorporated by reference into this item. At the reconvened Annual Meeting on September 8, 2020 (the “Reconvened Meeting”), stockholders will be deemed to be present in person and vote at such adjourned meeting in the same manner as disclosed in the definitive proxy statement the Company initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the Annual Meeting and provided to stockholders. Valid proxies submitted prior to the Reconvened Meeting will continue to be valid for the upcoming Reconvened Meeting, unless properly changed or revoked prior to votes being taken at the Reconvened Meeting.
