Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.


On November 23, 2020, Soligenix, Inc. (the “Company”) held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Meeting”) for stockholders to vote on the following proposals: (i) to affirm, ratify and approve an amendment to the Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, which increases the number of authorized shares of common stock from 50,000,000 to 75,000,000 (“Proposal No. 1”); and (ii) to approve the grant discretionary authority to adjourn the Special Meeting, if necessary, to solicit additional proxies in the event that there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve Proposal 1 (“Proposal No. 2”).


As of November 2, 2020 (the “Record Date”), the record date for the Meeting, there were 29,847,288 shares of the Company’s Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote with one vote per share on each proposal. In order to conduct the business of the Meeting, the Company required the presence, in person or by proxy, of a quorum consisting of a majority of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock on the Record Date. A quorum was present at the Meeting. As there were not sufficient votes to approve Proposal 1 at the time of the Meeting, the Chair of the Meeting exercised the discretionary authority granted by the stockholders pursuant to Proposal 2 to adjourn the Meeting to solicit additional proxies.


The Meeting will reconvene on November 27, 2020 (the “Adjournment Date”) at 9:00 a.m. EST. Stockholders may participate in the continuation of the Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/sngx2020SM and entering the 16-digit control number included on their proxy card or on the instructions that accompanied their proxy materials. Submission of proxies in respect of the adjourned meeting via Internet and telephone will be available until 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 26, 2020.


The vote for Proposal 2 the only proposal that had an effect at the Meeting was as follows:


For   Against   Abstain
18,355,342   3,241,900   356,850


There were no broker non-votes on this proposal.


The Company will amend this Current Report on Form 8-K to report the results of the vote on Proposal 1 following the Adjournment Date.
