Item 5.03     Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On June 12, 2019, The Meet Group, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), at which the Company’s stockholders approved to amend and restate an amendment and restatement to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to increase the Company’s authorized common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), from 100,000,000 shares to 200,000,000 shares (the “A&R Charter”). Prior to the A&R Charter, the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, authorized the Board to issue a maximum of 105,000,000 shares of the Company’s capital stock, consisting of 100,000,000 shares of the Common Stock and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”). Accordingly, the A&R Charter authorizes the Board to issue a maximum of 205,000,000 shares of the Company’s capital stock, consisting of 200,000,000 shares of the Common Stock and 5,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock.

The A&R Charter is described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019 (the “2019 Annual Meeting Proxy Statement”), and that description of the A&R Charter included in the 2019 Annual Meeting Proxy Statement is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the A&R Charter is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “A&R Charter Certificate”), which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

On June 13, 2019, the Company filed the A&R Charter Certificate with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware implementing the A&R Charter.

Section 2: EX-3.1 (AMENDED AND RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION OF THE MEET GROUP, INC.)

Exhibit


 
AMENDED AND RESTATED
CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION
OF
THE MEET GROUP, INC.

The Meet Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Corporation”), hereby certifies as follows:

1. The Corporation was originally incorporated on April 12, 2011.

2. Pursuant to Section 242 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), the amendments and restatement herein set forth have been duly approved by the Board of Directors and shareholders of the Corporation.

3. Pursuant to Section 245 of the DGCL, this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation restates and integrates and further amends the provisions of the Corporation’s (a) Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on August 8, 2011, (b) the Certificate of Amendment filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on June 1, 2012 and (c) Certificate of Amendment filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on April 3, 2017 (collectively, the “Current Certificate”).

4. The Current Certificate is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

1. The name of the corporation is The Meet Group, Inc. (the “Company”).

2. The address of its registered office is Corporation Trust Center, 1209 Orange Street, in the City of Wilmington, in the County of New Castle, in the State of Delaware, 19801. The name of its registered agent at such address is The Corporation Trust Company.

3. The nature of the business or purposes to be conducted or promoted are to engage in any lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

4. The total number of shares of stock of all classes and series the Company shall have authority to issue is 205,000,000 shares consisting of (i) 200,000,000 shares of common stock, par value of $0.001 per share and (ii) 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 with such rights, preferences and limitations as may be set from time to time by resolution of the board of directors and the filing of a certificate of designation as required by the Delaware General Corporation Law.
 
5. The Company is to have perpetual existence. In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers conferred by statute, the board of directors is expressly authorized to make, amend, alter or repeal the bylaws of the Company.

6. Elections of directors need not be by written ballot unless the bylaws of the Company shall so provide. Meetings of shareholders may be held within or without the State of Delaware as the bylaws may provide. The books of the Company may be kept (subject to any provision contained in the statutes) outside the State of Delaware at such place or places as may be designated from time to time by the board of directors or in the bylaws of the Company.

7. The Company reserves the right to amend, alter, change or repeal any provision contained in this certificate of incorporation, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by statute, and all rights conferred upon shareholders herein are granted subject to this reservation.

8. No director of this Company shall be personally liable to the Company or its shareholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director. Nothing in this paragraph shall serve to eliminate or limit the liability of a director (a) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to this Company or its shareholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or (d) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. If the Delaware General



Corporation Law is amended after approval by the shareholders of this article to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the personal liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Company shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as so amended.

Any repeal or modification of the foregoing paragraph by the shareholders of the Company shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a director of the Company existing at the time of such repeal or modification.
 
9.    (a) Each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is otherwise involved in any action, suit or proceeding (except as provided in Section 11 (f)) whether civil, criminal or administrative, (a “Proceeding”), or is contacted by any governmental or regulatory body in connection with any investigation or inquiry (an “Investigation”), by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or executive officer (as such term is utilized pursuant to interpretations under Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) of the Company or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefit plans (an “Indemnitee”), whether the basis of such Proceeding or Investigation is alleged action in an official capacity or in any other capacity as set forth above shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company to the fullest extent authorized by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the Company to provide broader indemnification rights than such law permitted the Company to provide prior to such amendment), against all expense, liability and loss (including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by such Indemnitee in connection therewith and such indemnification shall continue as to an Indemnitee who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the Indemnitee’s heirs, executors and administrators. The right to indemnification conferred in this Section shall be a contract right and shall include the right to be paid by the Company the expenses incurred in defending any such Proceeding in advance of its final disposition (an “Advancement of Expenses”);provided, however, that an Advancement of Expenses shall be made only upon delivery to the Company of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such Indemnitee, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined by final judicial decision from which there is no further right to appeal that such Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified for such expenses under this Section or otherwise (an “Undertaking”).
 
(b) If a claim under paragraph (a) of this Section is not paid in full by the Company within 60 days after a written claim has been received by the Company, except in the case of a claim for an Advancement of Expenses, in which case the applicable period shall be 20 days, the Indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring suit against the Company to recover the unpaid amount of the claim. If successful in whole or in part in any such suit or in a suit brought by the Company to recover an Advancement of Expenses pursuant to the terms of an Undertaking, the Indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting or defending such suit. In

(i)    any suit brought by the Indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification hereunder (but not in a suit brought by the Indemnitee to enforce a right to an Advancement of Expenses) it shall be a defense that, and

(ii)    any suit by the Company to recover an Advancement of Expenses pursuant to the terms of an Undertaking the Company shall be entitled to recover such expenses upon a final adjudication that, the Indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law. Neither the failure of the Company (including its board of directors, independent legal counsel, or its shareholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such suit that indemnification of the Indemnitee is proper in the circumstances because the Indemnitee has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law, nor an actual determination by the Company (including its board of directors, independent legal counsel, or its shareholders) that the Indemnitee has not met such applicable standard of conduct or, in the case of such a suit brought by the Indemnitee, be a defense to such suit.



In any suit brought by the Indemnitee to enforce a right hereunder, or by the Company to recover an Advancement of Expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the burden of proving that the Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified or to such Advancement of Expenses under this Section or otherwise shall be on the Company.

(c) The rights to indemnification and to the Advancement of Expenses conferred in this Section shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, this certificate of incorporation, bylaw, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or otherwise.

(d) The Company may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the Company would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss under the Delaware General Corporation Law.
 
(e) The Company may, to the extent authorized from time to time by the board of directors, grant rights to indemnification and to the Advancement of Expenses, to any employee or agent of the Company to the fullest extent of the provisions of this Section with respect to the indemnification and Advancement of Expenses of directors, and executive officers of the Company.

(f) Notwithstanding the indemnification provided for by this Section 11, the Company’s bylaws, or any written agreement, such indemnity shall not include any expenses incurred by such Indemnitees relating to or arising from any Proceeding in which the Company asserts a direct claim against an Indemnitee, or an Indemnitee asserts a direct claim against the Company, whether such claim is termed a complaint, counterclaim, crossclaim, third-party complaint or otherwise.

10. All action by holders of the Company’s outstanding voting securities shall be taken at an annual or special meeting of the shareholders following notice as provided by law or in the Bylaws and shareholders of the Company shall not have the power to act by means of written consent.
 
11. This Certificate of Incorporation and the internal affairs of the Corporation shall be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflict of laws principles. Unless the Corporation consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall be the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Corporation, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director or officer (or affiliate of any of the foregoing) of the Corporation to the Corporation or the Corporation’s shareholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law or the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, or (iv) any other action asserting a claim arising under, in connection with, and governed by the internal affairs doctrine.






IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has executed this Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation as of the 12th day of June 2019.
