NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
To Our Stockholders:
You are cordially invited to join the 2018 Special Meeting of Stockholders of Sugarmade, Inc. (the “Special Meeting”) to be held at 750 Royal Oaks Drive, Monrovia, CA 91016, on October 10, 2018 at 8:00 a.m., Pacific Time. For directions to attend the meeting, please call us at call 1-888-982-1628.
This Notice of Special Meeting and Proxy Statement describe the matters proposed by the Board of Directors to be considered and voted upon by our stockholders at the Special Meeting. At the Special Meeting, you will be asked to vote on the following proposals.
1. To approve an amendment to the Articles of Incorporation to increase our authorized capital 300,000,000 common shares to 2,000,000,000 common shares.
2. To approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies; and
3. To transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting, or any postponement or adjournment thereof.
Your vote is important. Whether you own relatively few or a large number of shares of our stock, it is important that your shares be represented and voted at the Special Meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, I urge you to complete, date and sign the enclosed proxy card and promptly return it to us in the envelope provided.
At this Special Meeting, we are asking you to approve an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the authorized shares of common stock as the Company believes that the proposed increase in authorized common stock is desirable to provide additional flexibility for, 1) present and potential business and financial transactions, 2) to provide the Company the ability to fully perform under a Master Marketing Agreement with BizRight Hydroponic, Inc. (“BizRight”) entered into on December 13, 2017 and, 3) to have sufficient shares available to provide equity incentives for our executives, directors, employees and consultants.
The record date of the Special Meeting is the close of business on August 23, 2018 (the “Record Date”). You may cast one vote for each share of our common stock that you own as of the Record Date.
A quorum of stockholders must be present at the Special Meeting for any business to be conducted. The presence at the Special Meeting, in person or by proxy, of stockholders entitled to cast a majority of the votes entitled to be cast as of the Record Date will constitute a quorum. Abstentions will be treated as shares present for quorum purposes. Broker shares for which the nominee has not received voting instructions from the record holder and does not have discretionary authority to vote the shares on certain proposals (“Broker Non-Votes”) will be treated as shares present for quorum purposes. On the Record Date, there were 264,612,921 shares of our common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. Thus, 132,306,461 shares of our common stock must be represented by stockholders’ present at the Special Meeting or by proxy to have a quorum.
If a quorum is not present at the Special Meeting, the stockholders who are represented may adjourn the Special Meeting until a quorum is present. The persons named as proxies will vote those proxies for such adjournment, unless marked to be voted against any proposal for which an adjournment is sought, to permit further solicitation of proxies.
Thank you for your support of our company.
/s/ Jimmy Chan
Jimmy Chan, President and Chairman of the Board
Dated: August 21, 2018
INFORMATION CONCERNING SOLICITATION AND VOTING
FOR THE SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
BE HELD ON OCTOBER 10, 2018
This proxy statement is being furnished in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of Sugarmade, Inc. (“we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”), for use at a Special Meeting of Stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to be held on October 10, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. (local time) at 750 Royal Oaks Dr., Suite 108, Monrovia, CA 91016 and any adjournments or postponements of the Special Meeting. The Board of Directors, or the “Board,” is soliciting proxies for the purposes set forth in the accompanying Notice of Special Meeting of Stockholders.
Record Date and Share Ownership
Only stockholders of record on our books at the close of business on August 23, 2018 will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and any adjournments or postponements of the Special Meeting. As of the close of business on August 21, 2018, we had 264,612,921 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Each share of Common Stock entitles the record holder to one vote on each matter to be voted upon by the holders of Common Stock at the Special Meeting. Copies of the Notice of the Special Meeting of Stockholders and the enclosed proxy card will be mailed to stockholders of record on or about August 25, 2018.
Voting in Person
If you plan to attend the meeting and vote in person, we will provide you with a ballot upon your arrival. However, if you hold your shares in the name of a broker, bank or other nominee, you must bring an account statement or letter from the nominee indicating that you were the beneficial owner of shares of Common Stock on August 23, 2018, the record date for voting. If you plan to vote in person at the meeting, please bring valid identification. Attendance at the meeting will require the presentation of valid government issued identification. Even if you currently plan to attend the meeting, we recommend that you also submit your proxy as described below so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend the meeting.
Voting by Proxy
Shares represented by a properly executed proxy in the form that accompanies this proxy statement will be voted at the Special Meeting and, if you provide instructions on the proxy, will be voted in accordance with those instructions. If you hold shares in your own name, you may vote by proxy by marking, dating, signing and mailing the enclosed proxy card in the prepaid envelope provided. If you return your proxy to the Company but fail to provide instructions with your proxy as to how your shares should be voted, your shares will be voted according to the recommendations of our Board to (1) approve an amendment to the Articles of Incorporation to increase our authorized capital 300,000,000 common shares to 2,000,000,000 common shares and (2) if required, to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies.
If other matters come before the Special Meeting, the persons named as proxies will vote on such matters in accordance with their best judgment. We have not received any notice of other matters that may properly be presented at the Special Meeting. We bear the expense of soliciting proxies. Our directors, officers or employees may also solicit proxies personally or by telephone, email, facsimile or other means of communication. The Company may use the services of other third-parties to solicit proxies for the Special Meeting (in which case the Company may also compensate such other third-parties for services rendered). We might reimburse banks, brokerage firms and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries representing beneficial owners of our Common Stock, for their expenses in forwarding soliciting materials to those beneficial owners.
Revoking a Proxy
You may revoke your proxy at any time prior to the start of the Special Meeting by delivering written instructions to our corporate secretary at the address set forth under “Communication with the Board of Directors” below. Attendance at the Special Meeting will not itself be deemed to revoke your proxy unless you give notice at the Special Meeting that you intend to revoke your proxy and vote in person. If you are a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name,” you may submit new voting instructions by contacting your broker, bank or other nominee.
A quorum of stockholders is necessary to hold a valid meeting. A majority of shares entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at the Special Meeting. Shares which abstain from voting on a particular matter and “broker non-votes,” or shares held in “street name” by brokers, banks or other nominees who indicate on their proxies that they do not have discretionary authority to vote such shares on a particular matter, are counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum exists.
Each holder of Common Stock is entitled to one vote for each share of Common Stock held on all matters to be voted on at the Special Meeting. With respect to “non-routine” matters, bank, brokerage firm or other nominees are not permitted under the rules governing self-regulatory organizations, or SRO rules, to vote its clients’ shares if the clients do not provide instructions. Broker non-votes and abstentions, if any, will have the effect of votes “AGAINST” with respect to such non-routine matters.
No Dissenters’ Rights
The proposed corporate actions on which the stockholders are being asked to vote are not corporate actions for which stockholders of a Delaware corporation have dissenter’s rights under the Delaware General Corporation Law.
PROPOSAL NO. 1 — APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED
SHARES OF COMMON STOCK.
Our Board of Directors has approved, subject to stockholder approval, an amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation (the “Common Stock Increase Amendment”) to increase the number of authorized shares of our common stock from 300,000,000 to 2,000,000,000 (“Proposal No. 1”). The Company’s Certificate of Incorporation currently authorizes the issuance of 300,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”). As of August 21, 2018, we had 264,612,921 shares of Common Stock outstanding. The increase in our authorized shares of Common Stock will be effective upon the filing of the Common Stock Increase Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.
Effects and Purpose of the Increase in Authorized Common Stock
The additional shares of Common Stock will have the same rights as the presently authorized shares, including the same voting rights, and rights to dividends and other distributions and will be identical in all other respects to our Common Stock now authorized.
As of August 21,2018, the Company had 264,612,921 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding. Given the Company’s need for additional available authorized shares of Common Stock to meet the Company’s business and financial needs, as well as the Company’s obligations in respect of its outstanding stock options, warrants and convertible securities, the Board of Directors believes that the increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock is necessary and in the Company’s best interests.
We have no shares of our Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. 
Although the authorization of additional shares will not, in itself, have any effect on the rights of any holder of our Common Stock, the Board of Directors may in the future issue the additional shares of Common Stock authorized by the Common Stock Increase Amendment to raise additional capital, to satisfy obligations in respect of its outstanding stock options, warrants and convertible securities, to provide equity incentives to employees, officers or directors or for other purposes.
If the Common Stock Increase Amendment is approved, the Company will have sufficient shares of Common Stock available
(i) to fully perform under a Master Marketing Agreement with BizRight Hydroponic, Inc. (“BizRight”) entered into on December 13, 2017. BizRight is a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS Bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and other cannabis-related grow and storage products. Under the Master Marketing Agreement, BizRight and its owners will be compensated via a combination of cash and common shares in Sugarmade. At full earn out outlined in said Agreement, the Company may be required to pay to BizRight and its owners a total of four hundred fifty million (450,000,000) shares of common stock, and
 On August 16, 2018, Sugarmade, Inc. filed with the Delaware Secretary of State a Certificate Of Correction with a Corrected Certificate of Designations, Powers, Preferences And Other Rights Of The Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. It had been determined that the Certificate of Designations, Powers, Preferences and other Rights of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock filed on April 24, 2015 should have been designated Series A Preferred Shares. Except for the correction of the class and series of the shares of Preferred Stock named therein there were no other substantive inaccuracies or substantive defects corrected. No Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding.
(ii) sufficient shares to compensate directors and officers as equity compensation and, as vested, can become exercisable; and
(iii) sufficient shares to provide for the conversion of the Company’s convertible promissory notes and warrants to acquire additional shares, if said notes are converted and not repaid in accordance with the term and conditions thereof.
All of the shares referred to above will be restricted securities. Restricted securities are securities acquired in an unregistered private sale from the issuer or from an affiliate of such an issuer and cannot be sold unless registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless there is an exemption from registration available.
In addition to the potential issuances listed above, which the Company anticipates may take place if the Common Stock Increase Amendment is approved, the Company also anticipates issuances in ongoing financings in connection with the Company’s expansion of its business. The Company does not currently have specific plans for a significant financing but will need to raise further funding over the course of this year as it has done in preceding years.
Although the increased proportion of unissued authorized shares to issued shares could, under certain circumstances, have or be used for an anti-takeover effect, the Common Stock Increase Amendment is not being proposed in response to any effort of which the Company is aware to accumulate shares of our Common Stock or obtain control of the Company.
Our Common Stock is currently registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Company is subject to the periodic reporting and other requirements of the Exchange Act. The Common Stock Increase Amendment will not affect the registration of the Company’s Common Stock under the Exchange Act.
No Appraisal Rights
No stockholder appraisal rights will be applicable in connection with the Common Stock Increase Amendment.
Implementation of the Common Stock Increase Amendment
If the Common Stock Increase Amendment is approved at the Special Meeting, our Board intends to implement the Common Stock Increase Amendment by filing an amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware as contemplated by the proposed form of “Certificate of Amendment” attached hereto as Appendix A.
Vote Required for Approval
The affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock entitled to vote at the Special Meeting is required to approve the amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Common Stock Increase Amendment. If a majority of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock are not voted to approve Proposal No. 1, the increase to the authorized shares of our Common Stock will not take effect at that time.
We recommend that you vote FOR approval of the Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Common Stock Increase Amendment.
PROPOSAL NO 2 - ADJOURNMENT OF THE SPECIAL MEETING
The Company’s stockholders may be asked to consider and act upon one or more adjournments of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies in favor of any or all of the other proposals set forth in this proxy statement.
If a quorum is not present at the Special Meeting, the Company’s stockholders may be asked to vote on the proposal to adjourn the Special Meeting to solicit additional proxies. If a quorum is present at the Special Meeting, but there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve one or more of the proposals, the Company’s stockholders may also be asked to vote on the proposal to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting to permit further solicitation of proxies in favor of the other proposals. However, a stockholder vote may be taken on one of the proposals in this proxy statement prior to any such adjournment if there are sufficient votes for approval on such proposal.
If the adjournment proposal is submitted for a vote at the Special Meeting, and if the Company’s stockholders vote to approve the adjournment proposal, the meeting will be adjourned to enable the Board to solicit additional proxies in favor of one or more proposals. If the adjournment proposal is approved, and the Special Meeting is adjourned, the Board will use the additional time to solicit additional proxies in favor of any of the proposals to be presented at the Special Meeting, including the solicitation of proxies from stockholders that have previously voted against the relevant proposal.
The Board believes that, if the number of shares of the Company’s common stock voting in favor of any of the proposals presented at the Special Meeting is insufficient to approve the proposal, it is in the best interests of the Company’s stockholders to enable the Board, for a limited period of time, to continue to seek to obtain a sufficient number of additional votes in favor of the proposal. Any signed proxies received by the Company in which no voting instructions are provided on such matter will be voted in favor of an adjournment in these circumstances. The time and place of the adjourned meeting will be announced at the time the adjournment is taken. Any adjournment of the Special Meeting for the purpose of soliciting additional proxies will allow the Company’s stockholders who have already sent in their proxies to revoke them at any time prior to their use at the Special Meeting adjourned or postponed.
SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT
The following table presents information regarding the beneficial ownership of our Common Stock as of August 21, 2018 by (i) each person, or group of affiliated persons, who is known by us to own beneficially more than 5% of any class of our equity securities, (ii) our directors and nominees for director (iii) each of our named executive officers, as defined in Item 402(a)(3) of Regulation S-K; and (iv) our directors and executive officers as a group. The address of the individuals in the following table is c/o Sugarmade, Inc., 750 Royal Oaks Drive, Suite 108, Monrovia, CA 91016.
|Officers and Directors||Amount and Nature of Beneficial Ownership|
Percentage of Class Beneficially Owned
|All Directors and Executive Officers as a Group||14,063,502||5.31||%|
|Greater than 5% Shareholders|
|Amy Thai and LMK Capital LLC||20,644,733||7.80||%|
As of the date of this filing, Jimmy Chan’s holdings represent 5.31% of the Company. He is currently a consultant for LMK Capital LLC. LMK Capital LLC, Amy Thai and Jimmy Chan each have related current ownership of the shares of the other, therefore he is a beneficial owner of shares owned by LMK Capital LLC.
Amy Thai and LMK Capital LLC.’s holdings are 9,378,066 and 11,266,667 respectively, as of the date of this filing the aggregated amount represents 7.80% of the company.
Subsequent to June 30, 2017 and as of the date hereof, Jimmy Chan is owed 5,000,000 shares of common shares, earned for services rendered. Chen Long Tan, the founder of BizRight, LLC, with which the Company signed a Master Marketing Agreement during December of 2017, is owed 59,138,705 shares of common shares, earned pursuant to a marketing agreement dated Dec 13, 2017. These shares of common stock are both restricted shares and deemed to be control shares. Restricted securities are securities acquired in an unregistered private sale from the issuer or from an affiliate of such an issuer. Control securities are those held by an affiliate of the issuing company. An affiliate is a person such as a director or large shareholder in the relationship of control of or with the issuer. Control means the power to direct the management and policies of the company in question, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract, or otherwise. If the investor buys securities from a controlling person or “affiliate,” he or she takes restricted securities, even if they were not restricted in the affiliate’s hands. All stock acquired by an affiliate in the open market becomes subject to Rule 144 as “control securities.”
|·||Shares of Common Stock beneficially owned and the respective percentages of beneficial ownership of Common Stock assume the exercise of all options, warrants and other securities convertible into Common Stock beneficially owned by such person or entity currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of August 21, 2018. Shares issuable pursuant to the exercise of stock options and warrants exercisable within 60 days are deemed outstanding and held by the holder of such options or warrants for computing the percentage of outstanding Common Stock beneficially owned by such person but are not deemed outstanding for computing the percentage of outstanding Common Stock beneficially owned by any other person.|
Except as indicated herein, we believe, based on the information furnished to us, that the persons and the entities named in the table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of Common Stock that they beneficially own, subject to applicable community property laws, and/or contractual or other obligations, if any. The table below is based upon the information supplied by our transfer agent, West Coast Transfer, Inc., the Company’s records and from a Schedule 13G filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). We further believe that LMK Capital LLC, had filed an untimely Schedule 13G. LMK Capital LLC owns 20,644,333 shares of the common stock. The Members of LMK Capital LLC consists solely of Amy Thai. Jimmy Chan, the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, provides consulting services to LMK Capital LLC. Jimmy Chan is the owner of 14,063,502 (5.71%) of the Company. LMK Capital LLC, and each member of the group are beneficial owners of the shares. Notwithstanding the untimely filing of the Schedule 13G, all information disclosed therein was disclosed in SEC filings (and appear in the Company’s records).
