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

Effective as of the same time and date as the forward stock split described in Item 5.03 below, the Compensation Committee of the board of directors (the “Board”) of Hawkins, Inc. (the “Company”) increased the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the Company’s equity compensation plans in proportion to the forward stock split. Upon effectiveness, the forward stock split also resulted in increases in the number of shares of common stock issuable upon vesting or settlement of equity awards in proportion to the forward stock split and caused a proportionate increase in the share-based performance criteria, if any, applicable to such awards.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

As previously announced, the Board approved a two-for-one forward split of the Company’s common shares. The record date for the split was February 19, 2021, the distribution date was March 1, 2021, and the forward split was recognized at the commencement of trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market on March 2, 2021 (the ex-dividend date).

Effective February 26, 2021, the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation were amended pursuant to the authority afforded to the Board in connection with the forward stock split. The amendment (i) increased the number of common shares authorized for issuance to 60 million shares and (ii) established a new par value of $0.01 per common share. The text of the amendment is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

Effective March 1, 2021, the Company restated its Articles of Incorporation to reflect all amendments through that date, including the amendment described above. The text of the Company’s Restated Articles of Incorporation is filed as Exhibit 3.2 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

A total of 21,222,052 common shares were issued and outstanding immediately after the forward stock split became effective on March 1, 2021.
