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


On February 1, 2013, Vuzix Corporation (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in order to effectuate a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, par value $0.001 per share. A copy of the Amendment is attached to this Current Report as Exhibit 3.1.


As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 4, 2012, on November 30, 2012, the stockholders of the Company approved the Amendment to effect a reverse split of Registrant’s issued and outstanding Common Stock at a ratio of not less than 1 for 25 and not more than 1 for 150, at any time prior to June 30, 2013, at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors.


On January 22, 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a reverse stock split at a ratio of 1 for 75, which took effect on February 6, 2013. As a result of the reverse stock split, every seventy-five shares of the Company’s pre-reverse split common stock will be combined and reclassified into one share of the Company’s common stock. No fractional shares of common stock will be issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to a fractional share shall receive the next higher number of whole shares.


The par value and other terms of Company’s common stock were not affected by the reverse stock split. Company’s post-reverse split common shares has a new CUSIP number, 92921W300, and will trade with a “D” added, under the symbol “VUZI D”, for the 20 business days beginning February 6, 2013 to designate that it is trading on a post-reverse split basis. Trading will resume under the symbol “VUZI” after the 20 day period has expired. The Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., is acting as exchange agent for the reverse stock split and will send instructions to stockholders of record regarding the exchange of certificates for common stock.


Item 8.01 Other Events


On February 6, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing the reverse stock split described above. The full text of the press release issued in connection with the announcement is being filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
