Item 3.03
Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

To the extent required by Item 3.03 of Form 8-K, the information contained in Item 5.03 and 5.07 of this report is incorporated herein by reference.

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

On October 10, 2017, CHF Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) at its offices at 12988 Valley View Road, Eden Prairie, Minnesota.  At the Special Meeting, the stockholders approved the proposal to amend the Company’s Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), to effect a reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock, at any time prior to the first anniversary of the approval by the stockholders, at a ratio in the range of one-for-ten to one-for-twenty, to be determined at the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”).

On October 10, 2017, following the Special Meeting, the Board approved a one-for-twenty reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”).  On October 12, 2017, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a Certificate of Amendment to its Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to effect the Reverse Stock Split. The Reverse Stock Split will become effective as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 12, 2017, and the Company’s common stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on October 13, 2017.

When the Reverse Stock Split becomes effective, every twenty shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock (and such shares held in treasury) will automatically be converted into one share of common stock, without any change in the par value per share. 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, restricted stock units and warrants to purchase shares of common stock and the number of shares reserved for issuance pursuant to the Company’s equity incentive compensation plans. Any fraction of a share of common stock that would be created as a result of the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded down to the next whole share and the stockholder will receive cash equal to the market value of the factional share, determined by multiplying such fraction by the closing sales price of the Company’s common stock as reported on Nasdaq on the last trading day before the Reverse Stock Split becomes effective.

The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “CHFS.” The new CUSIP number for common stock following the Reverse Stock Split will be 12542Q 508.

American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, will act as the exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split.

For more information about the Reverse Stock Split, see the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the “Special Meeting Proxy Statement”), which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and mailed to the Company’s stockholders on or about September 8, 2017, the relevant portions of which are incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Certificate of Amendment is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

“The Corporation is authorized to issue two classes of stock to be designated, respectively, “Common Stock” and “Preferred Stock”. The total number of shares that the Corporation is authorized to issue is One Hundred Forty Million (140,000,000) shares, each with a par value of $0.0001 per share.

Exhibit 99.1
 
 
CHF Solutions Announces 1 for 20 Reverse Split Ratio

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., October 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CHF Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHFS) announced today a 1-for-20 reverse split of its common stock, effective at 5:00 pm Eastern time today.  Beginning tomorrow, October 13, 2017, the Company’s common stock will trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market on a split adjusted basis.

At CHF Solutions’ special meeting of stockholders on October 10, 2017, the Company’s stockholders authorized the Board of Directors to amend the Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, of the Company to effect a reverse stock split at a ratio in the range of 1-for-10 to 1-for-20, as determined at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors.

Upon effectiveness, the reverse stock split will cause a reduction in the number of shares of common stock outstanding and issuable upon the conversion of the Company’s outstanding stock options and warrants in proportion to the ratio of the reverse split, and will cause a proportionate increase in the conversion and exercise prices of such stock options and warrants. The number of shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise or vesting of outstanding stock options and warrants will be rounded down to the nearest whole share.

The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “CHFS.” The new CUSIP number for the common stock following the reverse split is 12542Q 508.

The number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock will remain at 100,000,000, while the number of outstanding shares will be reduced from approximately 12.5 million to approximately 626,000. No fractional shares will be issued following the reverse stock split.

Additional information about the reverse stock split can be found in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 8, 2017, a copy of which is also available on the Company’s website under the Investors page.
