Item 5.07.

Submissions of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

As previously reported, on November 21, 2022, Graybug Vision, Inc. (“Graybug”) entered into the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization by and among Graybug, CalciMedica, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“CalciMedica”) and Camaro Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Graybug (“Merger Sub”), (as amended on February 10, 2023, the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement and subject to the satisfaction of the conditions described in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into CalciMedica, with CalciMedica surviving such merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Graybug (the “Merger”).

At the time the Merger closes (the “Effective Time”) each share of CalciMedica capital stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (excluding any shares held as treasury stock by CalciMedica or held or owned by Graybug, Merger Sub or any subsidiary of Graybug or CalciMedica and any dissenting shares), after giving effect to the automatic conversion of each share of CalciMedica preferred stock into shares of CalciMedica common stock immediately prior to the Effective Time in accordance with the relevant provisions of CalciMedica’s organizational documents (the “Preferred Stock Conversion”), the automatic exercise of certain CalciMedica warrants to purchase shares of CalciMedica capital stock immediately prior to the Effective Time in accordance with their terms and the conversion of CalciMedica convertible promissory notes, as may be amended, into CalciMedica common stock pursuant to their terms, will be automatically converted solely into the right to receive a number of shares of Graybug common stock (the “Shares”) equal to the Exchange Ratio (as defined in the Merger Agreement), with any fractional share issuable to a holder aggregated with all other fractional shares issuable to such holder and rounded up to the nearest whole share of Graybug common stock.

In connection with the Merger, Graybug prepared and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 9, 2023 a definitive proxy statement which was first mailed by Graybug to its stockholders on or about February 13, 2023 (the “Proxy Statement”). The Proxy Statement sought the approval of Graybug’s stockholders to, among other things, approve (i) the filing of an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of all outstanding Shares at a reverse stock split ratio mutually agreed upon by Graybug and CalciMedica, (ii) the issuance of Graybug common stock or other securities of Graybug that represent (or are convertible into) more than 20% of the Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Merger in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and the change of control of Graybug resulting from such transactions pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rules 5635(a) and 5635(b), respectively (collectively, the matters contemplated by the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii), the “Transaction Proposal”) and (iii) the adoption of the CalciMedica 2023 Equity Incentive Plan and the CalciMedica 2023 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (collectively with the Transaction Proposal, the “Graybug Stockholder Proposals”).

On March 15, 2023 at 9:00 a.m., Pacific Standard Time, Graybug held a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) at which the stockholders voted on the proposals set forth below, each of which is described in detail in the Proxy Statement.

As of February 7, 2023, the record date for the Special Meeting, there were 21,696,433 Shares issued and outstanding and entitled to vote. There were 14,330,535 Shares presented in person or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting. The final voting results for each proposal submitted to the stockholders of Graybug at the Special Meeting are included below.

Each of the proposals described below was approved by Graybug’s stockholders.


PROPOSAL 1 “The Share Issuance Proposal”:

To approve the issuance of Graybug common stock in the Merger and the resulting change of control under the Nasdaq Rules.












PROPOSAL 2 “The Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation Proposal”:

Item 8.01.

Other Events.

Stock Split

The board of directors of Graybug (the “Board”) has determined to set effect a reverse stock split of Graybug’s common stock at a ratio of 14 to 1 (“the Reverse Stock Split”). The Reverse Stock Split will become effective following the close of trading hours March 17, 2023, and the Shares will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on March 20, 2023.

Upon the effectiveness of the Reverse Stock Split on March 17, 2023, every 14 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined and reclassified into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split and stockholders will be entitled to a cash payment in lieu of any fractional shares. The Reverse Stock Split will not affect any stockholder’s ownership percentage of Graybug’s common stock, alter the par value of Graybug’s common stock, or modify any voting rights or other terms of the common stock. In addition, a proportionate adjustment will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding stock options and warrants to purchase shares of common stock and the number of shares reserved for issuance pursuant to Graybug’s equity incentive plans. Immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, there were approximately 21,997,030 shares of common stock outstanding. After the Reverse Stock Split, there will be approximately 1,571,216 shares outstanding.

At the market open on March 20, 2023, Graybug’s common stock will trade on The Nasdaq Global Market, will be assigned a new CUSIP number (38942Q 202), and will trade on a split-adjusted basis.
