Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On April 23, 2015, Nutra Pharma Corp., a California corporation (the Company), filed a Certificate of Amendment (the Amendment) to its Articles of Incorporation to effectuate a reverse stock split (the Reverse Split) of all the issued shares of the Companys common stock, $.001 par value per share (the Common Stock) at a ratio of one (1) share for every forty (40) shares outstanding, so that every forty (40) shares of Common Stock before the Reverse Split will represent one (1) share of Common Stock after the Reverse Split. No fractional shares will be issued, and no cash or other consideration will be paid. Instead, the Company will issue one whole share of the post-Reverse Split Common Stock to any shareholder who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the Reverse Split. If approved by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Reverse Split becomes effective with FINRA and in the marketplace at the open of business on May 18, 2015 (the Effective Date), whereupon the shares of Common Stock will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis. On the Effective Date, the Companys trading symbol will change to NPHCD for a period of 20 business days, after which the D will be removed and the Companys trading symbol will revert to the original symbol of NPHC. In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, the Companys CUSIP number will change to 67060U208.
According to the Amendment filed with the California Secretary of State, the Companys number of authorized shares of Common Stock remained unchanged at 2 billion shares. However, the Companys number of issued shares of Common Stock, whether outstanding or being held in treasury, was reduced from 1,510,950,321 to 37,773,759, and the Common Stock par value remained the same. The Reverse Split was effected after obtaining the shareholder approval required by Sections 902 and 903 of the California Corporations Code.
Each shareholders percentage ownership in the Company and proportional voting power remains unchanged after the Reverse Split, except for minor changes and adjustments resulting from the rounding of fractional interests. The rights and privileges of the holders of Common Stock are substantially unaffected by the Reverse Split.
Shareholders who are holding their shares of Common Stock in electronic form at their brokerage firms do not have to take any action as the effects of the Reverse Split will automatically be reflected in their brokerage accounts. Shareholders holding paper certificates may (but are not required to) send the certificates to the Companys transfer agent at the address given below. The transfer agent will issue a new share certificate reflecting the terms of the Reverse Split to each requesting shareholder.

Until surrender, each certificate representing shares of Common Stock before the Reverse Split would continue to be valid and would represent the adjusted number of shares of Common Stock based on the exchange ratio of the Reverse Split, rounded up to the nearest whole share. Shareholders should not destroy any stock certificate.
All options, warrants and convertible securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the Reverse Split will be appropriately adjusted by dividing the number of shares of Common Stock into which the options, warrants and convertible securities are exercisable or convertible by 40 and multiplying the exercise or conversion price thereof by 40, as a result of the Reverse Split.
A copy of the Amendment is attached to this current report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.1.
