On June 11, 2020, we effected a 1-for-5 reverse stock split. If you held shares in a brokerage account, the number of shares has been reduced by a factor of 5. If you held Energy Focus, Inc. shares in certificate form at the time of the reverse stock split, you could contact our transfer agent to obtain a new certificate with the corrected number of shares. If you have held your certificate for a long time, there may be other reverse splits that further reduced the number of shares beyond the factor of 5 described here.
In this regard, in July 2014, we also effected a 1-for-10 reverse stock split.

As disclosed in our public filings, some of our officers and directors receive equity rewards based on performance. These rewards include restricted stock grants and stock options. Specific details of these incentive plans, including performance goals, vesting schedules and conversion requirements are disclosed in documents filed with the SEC. In addition, both Senior Management and Board members may purchase shares of stock on the open market using their own funds. Further, trading of the company’s common stock by officers and directors is governed by certain SEC rules. In most cases, receipt of vested shares is a taxable event. In order to pay income taxes and other expenses, stockholders, including our officers and directors, must often sell shares in the open market. Shares held by officers and directors may be sold pursuant to a broker managed Rule 10b5-1 trading plan. However, officers and directors are not required to sell pursuant to such plans. Once a Rule 10b5-1 plan is in place, a broker periodically sells shares, according to certain formula and guidelines set forth in the plan. This removes the stockholder from the stock trading decision-making process and eliminates potential conflicts arising from the holder’s knowledge of inside information. Our Board of Directors believes that it is in the best interest of our stockholders to provide equity incentives to key members of the management team, as an integral part of their overall compensation. Even though equity incentives represent dilution for current stockholders, the Board believes that equity incentives help align the interests of management with the interests of our stockholders.
