Item 5.02.    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
The Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of Enphase Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) was held on May 19, 2021 in a virtual meeting format, pursuant to notice duly given (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”). The 2021 Plan was initially adopted by the Company's Board of Directors (“Board”) in March 2021. The terms of the 2021 Plan provide for the grant of incentive stock options; nonstatutory stock options; stock appreciation rights; restricted stock awards; restricted stock unit awards; performance stock awards; and other stock awards. As a result of the approval by the stockholders of the 2021 Plan at the Annual Meeting, no additional awards will be granted under the Company’s 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”). The total number of shares of the Company's common stock available for issuance under the 2021 Plan is (subject to adjustment for certain changes in the Company’s capitalization) comprised of: (A) the sum of (i) 9,530,000 newly reserved shares of common stock and (ii) 5,256,517 Returning Shares (as defined below) as such shares become available from time to time as set forth in the 2021 Plan; minus (B) the number of shares subject to any award granted under the 2011 Plan after March 22, 2021 but prior to the date of the Annual Meeting. “Returning Shares” means (i) shares subject to any outstanding award granted under the 2011 Plan (“Prior Plan Award”) that on or following the date of the Annual Meeting are not issued because such Prior Plan Award or any portion thereof expires or otherwise terminates without all of the shares covered by such Prior Plan Award having been issued, or is settled in cash; (ii) shares issued pursuant to a Prior Plan Award that on or following the date of the Annual Meeting are forfeited back to or repurchased by the Company because of a failure to vest; or (iii) shares that on or following the date of the Annual Meeting are reacquired or withheld (or not issued) by the Company to satisfy the purchase price of, or a tax withholding obligation in connection with, a Prior Plan Award that is a Full Value Award (as defined in the 2021 Plan). Eligible participants under the 2021 Plan include the Company’s employees (including the Company’s executive officers), directors, and consultants.
A more detailed summary of the material features of the 2021 Plan, including the terms of awards that may be granted thereunder, is set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 7, 2021 (the “Proxy Statement”). That summary and the foregoing description are qualified in their entirety by reference to the text of the 2021 Plan, a copy of which is incorporated by reference as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.

Item 5.03.    Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.
At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved and adopted the Certificate of Amendment (the “Certificate of Amendment”), of the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to increase the total number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock from 200,000,000 shares to 300,000,000 shares. The amendment was effected by filing the Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on May 19, 2021.
A copy of the Certificate of Amendment is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated into this Item 5.03 by reference.
