Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On August 31, 2020, Edward M. Karr notified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of U.S. Gold Corp. (the “Company”) that he intends to voluntarily relinquish his position as Chief Executive Officer following our 2020 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2020 Annual Meeting”). Effective upon his retirement from his role as Chief Executive Officer and subject to his election at the 2020 Annual Meeting, the Board intends to enter into a new employment agreement and appoint Mr. Karr executive chairman of the Board. The Board intends to appoint George Bee to succeed Mr. Karr as Chief Executive Officer.
Also on August 31, 2020, each of John N. Braca, the current chairman of the Board, Timothy M. Janke and Andrew Kaplan notified the Company that he does not intend to stand for re-election to the Board at the 2020 Annual Meeting. None of Messrs. Braca, Janke and Kaplan’s decision not to stand for re-election resulted from any disagreement with the Company or its management.
Item 5.08 Shareholder Director Nominations
On August 31, 2020, the Board established October 27, 2020, as the date for 2020 Annual Meeting and set September 2, 2020, as the record date for the 2020 Annual Meeting. Due to the fact that the date of the 2020 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than thirty (30) days from the anniversary date of the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Company is providing the due date for submission of any qualified stockholder proposal.
In accordance with Rule 14a-5(f) and Rule 14a-8(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the deadline for receipt of stockholder proposals for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2020 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 will be no later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, September 10, 2020. Stockholder proposals must comply with all of the applicable requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act.
The Company’s second amended and restated bylaws govern notice requirements for stockholder proposals and nominations intended to be presented at, but not included in the proxy materials for, the 2020 Annual Meeting. Because the date of the 2020 Annual Meeting is not being delayed by more than seventy (70) days from September 18, 2020 (the anniversary date of the Company’s 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders), the deadline for receipt of notice of a stockholder proposal or director nomination remains June 20, 2020. Accordingly, the deadline by which notice of a stockholder proposal or director nomination must have been received at the Company’s executive offices to be considered timely has passed.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
