729,805 shares of common stock

 

 

This Prospectus Supplement No. 1 updates, amends, and supplements the information previously included in our prospectus dated February 1, 2018, which we refer to as our prospectus, relating to the sale or other disposition from time to time of up to 729,805 shares of our common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”), issuable upon the exercise of warrants held by the selling stockholders named in the prospectus.

 

The following information is taken from our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 9, 2018.

 

Amended and Restated Bylaws

 

Effective February 7, 2018, the Board of Directors of Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. amended and restated the Bylaws of the Company (the “Bylaws”) to allow for stockholder proxy access for director nominations. The Bylaws now contain a new Section 3.16, which provides the means by which stockholders can have director nominees included in the Company’s proxy materials for annual meetings. Generally, a stockholder or group of not more than 20 stockholders who comply with the provisions of Section 3.16 and who have held at least 3% of the outstanding shares for at least three years may nominate the greater of two individuals or 20% of the number of directors in office. Technical amendments were made to other sections of the Bylaws to accommodate new Section 3.16.

 

Executive Compensation

 

Pursuant to their respective employment agreements, our Chief Executive Officer, Myron Holubiak, and our Chief Financial Officer, Jaime Bartushak, are eligible to receive an annual discretionary bonus equal to a percentage of their base salary (50% for Mr. Holubiak and 40% for Mr. Bartushak), based on the attainment of certain goals established by our Board of Directors. In our definitive proxy statement filed on December 13, 2017, we reported that the final bonus amounts had not been determined at that time and included in the executive compensation table under the nonequity incentive plan compensation column an amount equal to 100% of the respective officer’s bonus, which for Mr. Holubiak was $225,000 and for Mr. Bartushak was $100,000, which amounts had been fully accrued and reserved. In the proxy statement, we reported total compensation for fiscal 2017 to Mr. Holubiak of $694,114, which consisted of: base compensation of $450,000, nonequity incentive plan compensation of $225,000, and option awards of $19,114. In that same proxy statement, we reported total compensation for fiscal 2017 to Mr. Bartushak of $455,149, which consisted of: base compensation of $250,000, nonequity incentive plan compensation of $100,000, and option awards of $105,149. On February 7, 2018, our Board of Directors determined the attainment of the goals for each officer and awarded a bonus of $186,750 to Mr. Holubiak and a bonus of $83,000 to Mr. Bartushak, which brings Mr. Holubiak’s and Mr. Bartushak’s total compensation for fiscal 2017 to $655,864 and $438,846, respectively. There were no other changes to the executive compensation as reported in our definitive proxy statement.
