Explanatory Note


This current report on Form 8-K/A updates information provided on a Form 8-K dated June 2, 2021, relating to disclosures made under Item 5.07, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders and Item 8.01, Other Events associated with the Catabasis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 2, 2021 (the “2021 Annual Meeting”).


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


As previously reported, at the 2021 Annual Meeting, in a non-binding advisory vote, over a majority of the votes cast voted in favor of one year as the frequency with which the Company should hold future non-binding advisory votes on the compensation of its named executive officers. In light of these voting results and other factors, the Company has decided to hold future non-binding advisory votes on the compensation of its named executive officers on an annual basis, until the next non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of such votes on executive compensation.


Item 8.01Other Events.


As previously reported, at the 2021 Annual Meeting, the stockholders of the Company approved the issuance, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(a), of the Company’s common stock upon conversion of its Series X Preferred Stock issued in January and February 2021 (the “Conversion Proposal”). On June 8, 2021, the fourth business day following stockholder approval of the Conversion Proposal, 53,532 shares of Series X Preferred Stock automatically converted into 53,531,797 shares of the Company’s common stock. The remaining shares of Series X Preferred Stock (which are convertible into 32,545,203 shares of common stock) did not automatically convert due to certain beneficial ownership limitations and will remain convertible at the option of the holder thereof, subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations.


As a result of the conversion of the shares of Series X Preferred Stock, as of June 9, 2021, 76,948,803 shares of the Company’s common stock are issued and outstanding.







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.
