Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On February 19, 2020, Sigma Labs, Inc. (the “Company”) was informed by Frank Garofalo that he has resigned as a director of the Company, effective February 19, 2020. Mr. Garofalo has advised the Company that he resigned in order to cause the Company to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s majority of independent director requirement as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(b)(1), and not due to a disagreement with the Company on any matter regarding its operations, policies or practices.


Item 8.01 Other Events.


Nasdaq Compliance


As previously disclosed, on January 14, 2020, the Company received a notice from Nasdaq acknowledging the fact that the Company did not meet the requirements of Nasdaq’s majority of independent director requirement as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(b)(1) because the Company’s six-member Board of Directors was comprised of only three independent directors.


As a result of Frank Garofalo’s resignation as a director on February 19, 2020, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq on February 20, 2020 notifying the Company that the Company now complies with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(b)(1).


Limited Waiver


As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 27, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors (the “Investors”) pursuant to which the Investors purchased from the Company shares of the Company’s Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Shares”), warrants to purchase Common Stock (the “Common Warrants”) and warrants to purchase Preferred Shares. Under the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company was required to reserve for issuance (the “Reserve Amount”) 121,704,222 common shares (the “Initial Reserve Amount”) representing 200% of the maximum number of common shares issuable pursuant to the conversion of the Preferred Shares and 150% of the maximum number of common shares issuable pursuant to the exercise of the Common Warrants. The Company was required to seek stockholder approval for the Initial Reserve Amount.


Effective February 18, 2020, Investors holding a majority of the securities specified in the Securities Purchase Agreement executed a limited waiver pursuant to which (i) the Company will seek to obtain stockholder approval at the upcoming Special Meeting of Stockholders to increase the authorized number of shares of Common Stock to 80,000,000 shares, and (ii) the Reserve Amount decreased from the Initial Reserve Amount to 62,801,111 shares, provided that the Company must promptly seek stockholder approval of an increase of the Reserve Amount to a number of shares at least up to the Initial Reserve Amount if and when the amount of issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company is 40,000,000 (subject to adjustment in each case for any stock splits, stock dividends, stock combinations, recapitalizations or other similar transactions that occur with respect to the common stock).
