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


A special meeting of the stockholders of Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Special Meeting”) was convened on July 16, 2020, for the sole purpose of seeking approval of a proposal to amend our certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock (the “Amendment”). In order to allow for additional voting on the Amendment, the Chairman determined, in his discretion, to adjourn the Special Meeting until Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.


The Amendment requires the favorable vote of a majority of our outstanding shares of common stock as of May 22, 2020, the record date for the Special Meeting (the “Record Date”). On the Record Date, there were 95,660,355 shares of common stock outstanding. Accordingly, the affirmative vote of holders of at least 47,830,178 shares is necessary to implement the Amendment. As of the close of business on July 15, 2020, approximately 38% of the shares entitled to vote at the meeting had not yet been voted and while a substantial majority of the shares voted to date have been in favor of the Amendment, we have not yet achieved the vote required by Delaware law to implement the Amendment.


Approval of the Amendment is critical to enable us to expand sales of Probuphine® pursuant to our recently announced co-promotion partnership with Indegene, Inc. and fund other product development efforts over the next few years. As previously disclosed, our current cash resources are only sufficient to fund our operations through the third quarter of this year and we do not have a sufficient number of authorized shares remaining to undertake the financings necessary to continue our operations beyond the next few months.


The resumed meeting can be attended using the same access information that was used initially for the Special Meeting, the details of which are set forth in the Definitive Proxy Statement we filed with the SEC on May 22, 2020. The fastest and easiest way to vote is to call 866-619-4651 and speak with a proxy voting specialist Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
