CIPHERLOC CORPORATION
6836 BEE CAVE RD, BLDG. 1, S#279
AUSTIN, TX 78746

PROXY STATEMENT FOR THE
2021 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2021

The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Cipherloc Corporation (the “Company”) is soliciting your proxy to vote at the annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) to be held at 6836 Bee Caves Road, Building 1, Suite 279 in Austin, Texas, on September 13, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. local time, including at any adjournments or postponements of the Annual Meeting.

Our Board is asking you to vote your shares by completing, signing and returning a proxy card or vote over the Internet. If you attend the Annual Meeting in person, you may vote at the Annual Meeting even if you have previously returned a proxy card. Please note, however, that if your shares are held of record by a broker, bank or other nominee and you wish to vote at the Annual Meeting, you must obtain a proxy issued in your name from that record holder as described in more detail below.

INTERNET AVAILABILITY OF PROXY MATERIALS

As permitted by Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules, we are making this proxy statement and our annual report available to our stockholders primarily via the Internet, rather than mailing printed copies of these materials to each stockholder. We believe that this process will expedite stockholders’ receipt of the proxy materials, lower the costs of the Annual Meeting and help to conserve natural resources. On or about July 30, 2021, we intend to begin mailing to each stockholder a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Notice”) containing instructions on how to access and review the proxy materials, including our proxy statement and our annual report, on the Internet and how to access an electronic proxy card to vote on the Internet or by telephone. The Notice also contains instructions on how to receive a paper copy of the proxy materials. If you receive the Notice by mail, you will not receive a printed copy of the proxy materials unless you request one. If you receive the Notice by mail and would like to receive a printed copy of our proxy materials, please follow the instructions included in the Notice. Only stockholders who owned our common stock on July 15, 2021 are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials
for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be Held on September 13, 2021:

The Notice of Meeting, Proxy Statement, and our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K are available at:

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THIS PROXY MATERIAL AND VOTING

What is a proxy?

A proxy is the legal designation of another person to vote the stock you own. That other person is called a proxy. If you designate someone as your proxy in a written document, that document is also called a proxy or a proxy card. By completing, signing and returning the accompanying proxy card, you are designating Tom Wilkinson, the Chairman of our Board, as your proxy for the Annual Meeting and you are authorizing Mr. Wilkinson to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting as you have instructed on the proxy card. This way, your shares will be voted whether or not you attend the Annual Meeting. Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote in one of the ways described below so that your vote will be counted even if you are unable or decide not to attend the Annual Meeting.

What is a proxy statement?

A proxy statement is a document that we are required by regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or “SEC,” to give you when we ask you to sign a proxy card designating Mr. Wilkinson to vote on your behalf.

Why did you send me this proxy statement?

We sent you this proxy statement and proxy card because our Board is soliciting your proxy to vote at the Annual Meeting and any adjournment and postponement thereof. This proxy statement summarizes information related to your vote at the Annual Meeting. All stockholders who find it convenient to do so are cordially invited to attend the Annual Meeting. However, you do not need to attend the meeting to vote your shares. Instead, you may simply complete, sign and return the proxy card by mail or vote over the Internet or by phone.

On or about July 30, 2021, we intend to begin mailing to each stockholder a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials containing instructions on how to access and review the proxy materials, including our proxy statement and our annual report, on the Internet and how to access an electronic proxy card to vote on the Internet. Only stockholders who owned our common stock on July 15, 2021 are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

What Does it Mean if I Receive More than one set of proxy materials?

If you receive more than one set of proxy materials, your shares may be registered in more than one name or in different accounts. Please complete, sign, and return each proxy card to ensure that all of your shares are voted.
How do I attend the Annual Meeting?

The Annual Meeting will be held on September 13, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. local time at 6836 Bee Caves Road, Building 1, Suite 279 in Austin, Texas. Information on how to vote in person at the Annual Meeting is discussed below.

Who is Entitled to Vote?

The Board has fixed the close of business on July 15, 2021 as the record date (the “Record Date”) for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. On the Record Date, there were 82,927,311 shares of common stock outstanding. Each share of common stock represents one vote that may be voted on each proposal that may come before the Annual Meeting.

What is the Difference Between Holding Shares as a Record Holder and as a Beneficial Owner (Holding Shares in Street Name)?

If your shares are registered in your name with our transfer agent, Pacific Stock Transfer Company, you are the “record holder” of those shares. If you are a record holder, these proxy materials have been provided directly to you by the Company.

If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account, a bank or other holder of record, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of those shares held in “street name.” If your shares are held in street name, the Notice has been forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered to be the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Annual Meeting. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to instruct this organization on how to vote your shares. See “How Will my Shares be Voted if I Give No Specific Instruction?” below for information on how shares held in street name will be voted without instructions provided.

Who May Attend the Annual Meeting?

Only record holders and beneficial owners of our common stock, or their duly authorized proxies, may attend the Annual Meeting. If your shares of common stock are held in street name, you will need to provide a copy of a brokerage statement or other documentation reflecting your stock ownership as of the Record Date.

What am I Voting on?

There are six(6) matters scheduled for a vote:

1. To elect four (4) members to our Board;

2. To ratify the appointment of Briggs & Veselka Co. as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021;

3. To approve and adopt the Company’s 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”) and the reservation of 8,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance thereunder;

4. To approve the reincorporation of the Company from the State of Texas to the State of Delaware;

5. To grant discretionary authority to our board of directors to (i) amend our proposed Delaware certificate of incorporation, after the Company effectuates its reincorporation to the State of Delaware, to combine outstanding shares of our common stock into a lesser number of outstanding shares, or a “reverse stock split,” at a specific ratio within a range of 1-for-2 to a maximum of a 1-for-20 split, with the exact ratio to be determined by our board of directors in its sole discretion; and (ii) effect the reverse stock split, if at all, within one year of the date the proposal is approved by stockholders; and

6. To approve an amendment of the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended, to eliminate the shareholders’ statutory preemptive rights pursuant to Section 21.208 of the Texas Business Organizations Code in the event that the reincorporation of the Company from the State of Texas to the State of Delaware is not consummated.

What if another matter is properly brought before the Annual Meeting?

The Board knows of no other matters that will be presented for consideration at the Annual Meeting. The proxy also has discretionary authority to vote to adjourn the Annual Meeting, including for the purpose of soliciting votes in accordance with our Board’s recommendations. If any other matters are properly brought before the Annual Meeting, it is the intention of the person named in the accompanying proxy to vote on those matters in accordance with his best judgment.

Stockholders of Record

If you are a registered stockholder, you may vote by mail, Internet, phone or online at the Annual Meeting by following the instructions in the Notice. You also may submit your proxy by mail by following the instructions included with your proxy card. The deadline for submitting your proxy by Internet is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 11, 2021. Our Board’s designated proxy, Mr. Wilkinson, will vote your shares according to your instructions. If you attend the live webcast of the Annual Meeting, you also will be able to vote your shares electronically at the meeting up until the time the polls are closed.

Beneficial Owners of Shares Held in Street Name

If you are a street name holder, your broker or nominee firm is the legal, registered owner of the shares, and it may provide you with the Notice. Follow the instructions on the Notice to access our proxy materials and vote or to request a paper or email copy of our proxy materials. The materials include a voting instruction card so that you can instruct your broker or nominee how to vote your shares. Please check the Notice or voting instruction card or contact your broker or other nominee to determine whether you will be able to deliver your voting instructions by Internet in advance of the meeting and whether, if you attend the live webcast of the Annual Meeting, you will be able to vote your shares electronically at the meeting up until the time the polls are closed.

All shares entitled to vote and represented by a properly completed and executed proxy received before the Annual Meeting and not revoked will be voted at the Annual Meeting as instructed in a proxy delivered before the Annual Meeting. We provide Internet proxy voting to allow you to vote your shares online, with procedures designed to ensure the authenticity and correctness of your proxy vote instructions. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your Internet access, such as usage charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies.

IMPORTANT: If you vote by Internet, please DO NOT mail your proxy card.

How Many Votes do I Have?

On each matter to be voted upon, you have one vote for each share of common stock you own as of the close of business on the Record Date.

Is My Vote Confidential?

Yes, your vote is confidential. Only the inspector of elections, individuals who help with processing and counting your votes and persons who need access for legal reasons will have access to your vote. This information will not be disclosed, except as required by law.

What Constitutes a Quorum?

To carry on business at the Annual Meeting, we must have a quorum. A quorum is present when a majority of the shares entitled to vote, as of the Record Date, are represented in person or by proxy. Thus, 41,463,656 shares must be represented in person or by proxy to have a quorum at the Annual Meeting. Your shares will be counted towards the quorum only if you submit a valid proxy (or one is submitted on your behalf by your broker, bank or other nominee) or if you vote in person at the Annual Meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the quorum requirement. Shares owned by the Company are not considered outstanding or considered to be present at the Annual Meeting. If there is not a quorum at the Annual Meeting, either the chairperson of the Annual Meeting or our stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting may adjourn the Annual Meeting.

-7-


How Will my Shares be Voted if I Give No Specific Instruction?

We must vote your shares as you have instructed. If there is a matter on which a stockholder of record has given no specific instruction but has authorized us generally to vote the shares, they will be voted as follows:

1. “For” the election of the board of director’s four (4) nominees to our Board;

2. “For” the ratification of the appointment of Briggs & Veselka Co. as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021;

3. “For” the approval and adoption of the Company’s 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”) and the reservation of 8,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance thereunder;

4. “For” the approval of the reincorporation of the Company from the State of Texas to the State of Delaware;

5. “For” the grant discretionary authority to our board of directors to (i) amend our proposed Delaware certificate of incorporation, after the Company effectuates its reincorporation to the State of Delaware, to combine outstanding shares of our common stock into a lesser number of outstanding shares, or a “reverse stock split,” at a specific ratio within a range of 1-for-2 to a maximum of a 1-for-20 split, with the exact ratio to be determined by our board of directors in its sole discretion; and (ii) effect the reverse stock split, if at all, within one year of the date the proposal is approved by stockholders; and

6. “For” the approval of the amendment of the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended, to eliminate the shareholders’ statutory preemptive rights pursuant to Section 21.208 of the Texas Business Organizations Code

This authorization would exist, for example, if a stockholder of record merely signs, dates and returns the proxy card but does not indicate how its shares are to be voted on one or more proposals. If other matters properly come before the Annual Meeting and you do not provide specific voting instructions, your shares will be voted at the discretion of Mr. Wilkinson, the Board’ designated proxy.

If your shares are held in street name, see “What is a Broker Non-Vote?” below regarding the ability of banks, brokers and other such holders of record to vote the uninstructed shares of their customers or other beneficial owners in their discretion.

How are Votes Counted?

Votes will be counted by the inspector of election appointed for the Annual Meeting, who will separately count, for the election of directors, “For,” “Withhold” and broker non-votes; and, with respect to the other proposals, votes “For” and “Against,” abstentions and broker non-votes.

What is a Broker Non-Vote?

A “broker non-vote” occurs when shares held by a broker in “street name” for a beneficial owner are not voted with respect to a proposal because (1) the broker has not received voting instructions from the stockholder who beneficially owns the shares and (2) the broker lacks the authority to vote the shares at their discretion.

What is an Abstention?

An abstention is a stockholder’s affirmative choice to decline to vote on a proposal. Under Delaware law, abstentions are counted as shares present and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. Generally, unless provided otherwise by applicable law, our amended and restated bylaws (the “Bylaws”) provide that an action of our stockholders (other than the election of directors) is approved if a majority of the number of shares of stock entitled to vote thereon and present (either in person or by proxy) vote in favor of such action. Therefore, abstentions will have no effect with respect to Proposals 1, 2, and 3. Abstentions will have the effect of a vote “against” Proposals 4, 5, and 6.

-8-


How many votes are required to approve each proposal?

The table below summarizes the proposals that will be voted on, the vote required to approve each item and how votes are counted:

Proposal Votes Required Voting Options Impact of “Withhold” or “Abstain” Votes
Proposal No. 1: Election of Directors The plurality of the votes cast. This means that the nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative “FOR” votes will be elected as directors. “FOR” “WITHHOLD” None(1)

Proposal No. 2: Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) at the Annual Meeting by the holders entitled to vote thereon. “FOR” “AGAINST” “ABSTAIN” None(2)

Proposal No. 3: Adoption of the 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) at the Annual Meeting by the holders entitled to vote thereon. “FOR” “AGAINST” “ABSTAIN” None(2)

Proposal No. 4: Reincorporation of the Company from the State of Texas to the State of Delaware The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock. “FOR” “AGAINST” “ABSTAIN” (3)

Proposal No. 5: Reverse Stock Split Proposal The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock. “FOR” “AGAINST” “ABSTAIN” (3)

Proposal No. 6: Amendment to Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock. “FOR” “AGAINST” “ABSTAIN” (3)



(1) Votes that are “withheld” will have the same effect as an abstention and will not count as a vote “FOR” or “AGAINST” a director, because directors are elected by plurality voting.
(2) A vote marked as an “Abstention” is not considered a vote cast and will, therefore, not affect the outcome of this proposal.
(3) Abstentions will have the effect of a vote against this proposal.

-9-


What Are the Voting Procedures?

In voting by proxy with regard to the election of directors, you may vote in favor of all nominees, withhold your votes as to all nominees, or withhold your votes as to specific nominees. With regard to other proposals, you may vote in favor of or against the proposal, or you may abstain from voting on the proposal. You should specify your respective choices on the accompanying proxy card or your vote instruction form.

Is My Proxy Revocable?

You may revoke your proxy and reclaim your right to vote at any time before your proxy is voted by giving written notice to the Corporate Secretary of the Company by delivering a properly completed, later-dated proxy card or vote instruction form or by voting in person at the Annual Meeting. All written notices of revocation and other communications with respect to revocations of proxies should be addressed to: Cipherloc Corporation, 6836 Bee Cave Rd, Bldg. 1, S#279, Austin, TX 78746 Attention: Corporate Secretary. Your most current proxy card or Internet proxy is the one that will be counted.

Who is Paying for the Expenses Involved in Preparing and Mailing this Proxy Statement?

All of the expenses involved in preparing, assembling and mailing these proxy materials and all costs of soliciting proxies will be paid by us. In addition to the solicitation by mail, proxies may be solicited by our officers and other employees by telephone or in person. Such persons will receive no compensation for their services other than their regular salaries. Arrangements will also be made with brokerage houses and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries to forward solicitation materials to the beneficial owners of the shares held of record by such persons, and we may reimburse such persons for reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by them in forwarding solicitation materials. We have retained Kingsdale Advisors as our strategic stockholder advisor and proxy solicitation agent in connection with the solicitation of proxies for the Annual Meeting. If you have any questions or require any assistance with completing your proxy, please contact Kingsdale Advisors by telephone (toll-free within North America) at +1 (888) 518-6824 or (call collect outside North America) at +1 (416) 867-2272 or by email at contactus@kingsdaleadvisors.com.

Do I Have Dissenters’ Rights of Appraisal?

Stockholders do not have appraisal rights under Texas law or under the Company’s governing documents with respect to Proposal 1 (Election of Directors), Proposal 2 (Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm), Proposal 3 (Adoption of the 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan), Proposal 5 (Reverse Stock Split Proposal) and Proposal 6 (Amendment to Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation).

Stockholders do have appraisal rights under Texas law with respect to Proposal 4 (Reincorporation from Texas to Delaware). Under Subchapter H, Chapter 10 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (§§10.351 through 10.368), a copy of which is included as Appendix G to this proxy statement (the “Dissenters’ Rights Statutes”), shareholders have dissenters’ and appraisal rights in connection with the approval of the Reincorporation. There are strict procedures for exercising these rights that if not met could result in the loss of these rights. Persons having beneficial interests in the Company’s common stock held of record in the name of another person, such as a broker or bank, must act promptly to cause the record holder to take the actions required under Texas law to exercise dissenters’ rights. In order to dissent, you must carefully follow the requirements of the Dissenters’ Rights Statutes, including giving the required written notice of objection prior to the Annual Meeting. These steps are summarized below under “Proposal #4: The Reincorporation Proposal — Dissenters’ Right of Appraisal.”

How can I Find out the Results of the Voting at the Annual Meeting?

Preliminary voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting. In addition, final voting results will be disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K that we expect to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) within four business days after the Annual Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a Form 8-K with the SEC within four business days after the Annual Meeting, we intend to file a Form 8-K to publish preliminary results and, within four business days after the final results are known to us, file an amended Form 8-K to publish the final results.

PROPOSAL 1

ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

At the Annual Meeting, the stockholders will elect four (4) directors to hold office until the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders. Directors are elected by a plurality of votes cast by stockholders. In the event the nominees are unable or unwilling to serve as directors at the time of the Annual Meeting, proxies will be voted for any substitute nominees designated by the present Board or the proxy holders to fill such vacancy, or for the balance of the nominees named without nomination of a substitute. The Board has no reason to believe that the persons named below will be unable or unwilling to serve as nominees or as directors if elected.

Assuming a quorum is present, the four (4) nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative votes of shares entitled to be voted for such persons will be elected as directors of the Company for the ensuing year. Unless marked otherwise, proxies received will be voted “FOR” the election of the nominees named below. In the event that additional persons are nominated for election as directors, the proxy holder intends to vote all proxies received by them in such a manner as will ensure the election of the nominees listed below, and, in such event, the specific nominees to be voted for will be determined by the proxy holders.

Information with Respect to Director Nominees

PROPOSAL 3:

ADOPTION OF 2021 OMNIBUS EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Summary

On May 12, 2021, our Board adopted our 2021 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”). The 2021 Plan will become effective, if at all, on the date that it is approved by our stockholders (the “Effective Date”).

The Company does not currently have any equity compensation plans.

Under the 2021 Plan, 8,000,000 shares of Company common stock are initially available for grant.

Our administrator may grant incentive stock options, non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units and other stock-based awards to participants to acquire shares of Company common stock under the 2021 Plan. The 2021 Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee of our Board. The closing price per-share of Company common stock on June 1, 2021, was $0.2150. The following table sets forth, as of June 1, 2021, the approximate number of each class of participants eligible to participate in the 2021 Plan and the basis of such participation.

Class and Basis of Participation Approximate
Number of
Class
Employees 4
Directors(1) 4
Independent Contractors 2



(1) One (1) of the four (4) directors is an employee of the Company.

Rationale for Adoption of the 2021 Plan

Grants of options, stock appreciation rights, restricted shares of common stock, restricted stock units and other stock-based awards to our employees, directors and independent contractors are an important part of our long-term incentive compensation program, which we use in order to strengthen the commitment of such individuals to us, motivate them to faithfully and diligently perform their responsibilities and attract and retain competent and dedicated individuals whose efforts are expected to result in our long-term growth and profitability.

The number of shares proposed to be available for grant under the 2021 Plan is designed to enable the Company to properly incentivize its employees and management teams over a number of years on a going-forward basis.

Dilution, Stock Available and Historical Stock Usage

Dilution. Subject to stockholder approval of the 2021 Plan, 8,000,000 shares of Company common stock will be reserved for issuance under the Plan, which represents approximately 9.6% of our issued and outstanding shares of Company’s common stock. The Board believes that this number of shares of Company’s common stock constitutes reasonable potential equity dilution and provides a significant incentive for employees to increase the value of the Company for all stockholders. The closing trading price of each share of Company common stock as of the Record Date was $0.18.

-18-


As of the Record Date, we had: (i) 82,927,311 shares of Company’s common stock outstanding; and (ii) 0 (zero) stock options outstanding (vested and unvested). The new shares of Company’s common stock available under the 2021 Plan would represent an additional potential equity dilution of approximately 9.6%. Including the proposed additional shares of Company’s common stock under the 2021 Plan, the potential equity dilution from all equity incentive awards outstanding and available for grant under all of our equity plans would result in a maximum potential equity dilution of approximately 9.6%.

Shares Available; Certain Limitations. The maximum number of shares of common stock reserved and available for issuance under the 2021 Plan will be 8,000,000 shares of common stock.

New shares reserved for issuance under the 2021 Plan may be authorized but unissued shares of Company’s common stock or shares of Company’s common stock that will have been or may be reacquired by us in the open market, in private transactions or otherwise. If any shares of Company’s common stock subject to an award are forfeited, cancelled, exchanged or surrendered or if an award terminates or expires without a distribution of shares to the participant, the shares of Company common stock with respect to such award will, to the extent of any such forfeiture, cancellation, exchange, surrender, termination or expiration, again be available for awards under the Plan except that any shares of Company common stock surrendered or withheld as payment of either the exercise price of an award and/or withholding taxes in respect of an award will not again be available for awards under the Plan. If an award is denominated in shares of Company’s common stock, but settled in cash, the number of shares of common stock previously subject to the award will again be available for grants under the 2021 Plan. If an award can only be settled in cash, it will not be counted against the total number of shares of common stock available for grant under the 2021 Plan. However, upon the exercise of any award granted in tandem with any other awards, such related awards will be cancelled as to the number of shares as to which the award is exercised and such number of shares of Company’s common stock will no longer be available for grant under the 2021 Plan.

As exhibited by our responsible use of equity over the past several years and good corporate governance practices associated with equity and executive compensation practices in general, the stock reserved under the 2021 Plan will provide us with the platform needed for continued our growth, while managing program costs and share utilization levels within acceptable industry standards.

Share Usage. Cipherloc does not have an equity incentive plan currently and have not had one covering the previous three-year period. Consequently, there is no share usage by existing equity plan over the past three years.

Description of 2021 Plan

The following is a summary of the material features of the 2021 Plan. This summary is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the 2021 Plan, a copy of which is attached to this Proxy Statement as Appendix A.

Types of Awards. The 2021 Plan provides for the issuance of incentive stock options, non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), restricted stock, restricted stock units (“RSUs”), and other stock-based awards. Items described above in the Section called “Shares Available” are incorporated herein by reference.

Administration. The 2021 Plan will be administered by our Board, or if our Board does not administer the 2021 Plan, a committee or subcommittee of our Board that complies with the applicable requirements of Section 16 of the Exchange Act and any other applicable legal or stock exchange listing requirements (each of our Board or such committee or subcommittee, the “plan administrator”). The plan administrator may interpret the 2021 Plan and may prescribe, amend and rescind rules and make all other determinations necessary or desirable for the administration of the 2021 Plan, provided that, subject to the equitable adjustment provisions described below, the plan administrator will not have the authority to reprice or cancel and re-grant any award at a lower exercise, base or purchase price or cancel any award with an exercise, base or purchase price in exchange for cash, property or other awards without first obtaining the approval of our stockholders.

The 2021 Plan permits the plan administrator to select the eligible recipients who will receive awards, to determine the terms and conditions of those awards, including but not limited to the exercise price or other purchase price of an award, the number of shares of common stock or cash or other property subject to an award, the term of an award and the vesting schedule applicable to an award, and to amend the terms and conditions of outstanding awards.
-19-


Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units. Restricted stock and RSUs may be granted under the 2021 Plan. The plan administrator will determine the purchase price, vesting schedule and performance goals, if any, and any other conditions that apply to a grant of restricted stock and RSUs. If the restrictions, performance goals or other conditions determined by the plan administrator are not satisfied, the restricted stock and RSUs will be forfeited. Subject to the provisions of the 2021 Plan and the applicable award agreement, the plan administrator has the sole discretion to provide for the lapse of restrictions in installments.

Unless the applicable award agreement provides otherwise, participants with restricted stock will generally have all of the rights of a stockholder, provided that dividends will only be paid if and when the underlying restricted stock vests. RSUs will not be entitled to dividends prior to vesting but may be entitled to receive dividend equivalents if the award agreement provides for them. The rights of participants granted restricted stock or RSUs upon the termination of employment or service to us will be set forth in the award agreement.

Options. Incentive stock options and non-statutory stock options may be granted under the 2021 Plan. An “incentive stock option” means an option intended to qualify for tax treatment applicable to incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code. A “non-statutory stock option” is an option that is not subject to statutory requirements and limitations required for certain tax advantages that are allowed under specific provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. A non-statutory stock option under the 2021 Plan is referred to for federal income tax purposes as a “non-qualified” stock option. Each option granted under the Plan will be designated as a non-qualified stock option or an incentive stock option. At the discretion of the administrator, incentive stock options may be granted only to our employees, employees of our “parent corporation” (as such term is defined in Section 424(e) of the Code) or employees of our subsidiaries.

The exercise period of an option may not exceed ten years from the date of grant and the exercise price may not be less than 100% of the fair market value of a share of common stock on the date the option is granted (110% of fair market value in the case of incentive stock options granted to ten percent stockholders). The exercise price for shares of common stock subject to an option may be paid in cash, or as determined by the administrator in its sole discretion, (i) through any cashless exercise procedure approved by the administrator (including the withholding of shares of common stock otherwise issuable upon exercise), (ii) by tendering unrestricted shares of common stock owned by the participant, (iii) with any other form of consideration approved by the administrator and permitted by applicable law or (iv) by any combination of these methods. The option holder will have no rights to dividends or distributions or other rights of a stockholder with respect to the shares of Common Stock subject to an option until the option holder has given written notice of exercise and paid the exercise price and applicable withholding taxes.

In the event of a participant’s termination of employment or service, the participant may exercise his or her option (to the extent vested as of such date of termination) for such period of time as specified in his or her option agreement.

Stock Appreciation Rights. SARs may be granted either alone (a “free-standing SAR”) or in conjunction with all or part of any option granted under the 2021 Plan (a “tandem SAR”). A free-standing SAR will entitle its holder to receive, at the time of exercise, an amount per share up to the excess of the fair market value (at the date of exercise) of a share of common stock over the base price of the free-standing SAR (which shall be no less than 100% of the fair market value of the related shares of common stock on the date of grant) multiplied by the number of shares in respect of which the SAR is being exercised. A tandem SAR will entitle its holder to receive, at the time of exercise of the SAR and surrender of the applicable portion of the related option, an amount per share up to the excess of the fair market value (at the date of exercise) of a share of common stock over the exercise price of the related option multiplied by the number of shares in respect of which the SAR is being exercised. The exercise period of a free-standing SAR may not exceed ten years from the date of grant. The exercise period of a tandem SAR will also expire upon the expiration of its related option.

The holder of a SAR will have no rights to dividends or any other rights of a stockholder with respect to the shares of Common Stock subject to the SAR until the holder has given written notice of exercise and paid the exercise price and applicable withholding taxes.

-20-


In the event of a participant’s termination of employment or service, the holder of a SAR may exercise his or her SAR (to the extent vested as of such date of termination) for such period of time as specified in his or her SAR agreement.

Other Stock-Based Awards. The administrator may grant other stock-based awards under the 2021 Plan, valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on, shares of common stock. The administrator will determine the terms and conditions of these awards, including the number of shares of common stock to be granted pursuant to each award, the manner in which the award will be settled, and the conditions to the vesting and payment of the award (including the achievement of performance goals). The rights of participants granted other stock-based awards upon the termination of employment or service to us will be set forth in the applicable award agreement. In the event that a bonus is granted in the form of shares of common stock, the shares of common stock constituting such bonus shall, as determined by the administrator, be evidenced in uncertificated form or by a book entry record or a certificate issued in the name of the participant to whom such grant was made and delivered to such participant as soon as practicable after the date on which such bonus is payable. Any dividend or dividend equivalent award issued hereunder shall be subject to the same restrictions, conditions and risks of forfeiture as apply to the underlying award.

Equitable Adjustment and Treatment of Outstanding Awards Upon a Change in Control

Equitable Adjustments. In the event of a merger, consolidation, reclassification, recapitalization, spin-off, spin-out, repurchase, reorganization, special or extraordinary dividend or other extraordinary distribution (whether in the form of common shares, cash or other property), combination, exchange of shares, or other change in corporate structure affecting our common stock, an equitable substitution or proportionate adjustment shall be made in (i) the aggregate number and kind of securities reserved for issuance under the 2021 Plan, (ii) the kind and number of securities subject to, and the exercise price of, any outstanding options and SARs granted under the 2021 Plan, (iii) the kind, number and purchase price of shares of common stock, or the amount of cash or amount or type of property, subject to outstanding restricted stock, RSUs and other stock-based awards granted under the 2021 Plan and (iv) the terms and conditions of any outstanding awards (including any applicable performance targets). Equitable substitutions or adjustments other than those listed above may also be made as determined by the plan administrator. In addition, the plan administrator may terminate all outstanding awards for the payment of cash or in-kind consideration having an aggregate fair market value equal to the excess of the fair market value of the shares of common stock, cash or other property covered by such awards over the aggregate exercise price, if any, of such awards, but if the exercise price of any outstanding award is equal to or greater than the fair market value of the shares of common stock, cash or other property covered by such award, the plan administrator may cancel the award without the payment of any consideration to the participant. With respect to awards subject to foreign laws, adjustments will be made in compliance with applicable requirements. Except to the extent determined by the plan administrator, adjustments to incentive stock options will be made only to the extent not constituting a “modification” within the meaning of Section 424(h)(3) of the Code.

Change in Control. The 2021 Plan provides that, unless otherwise determined by the plan administrator and evidenced in an award agreement, if a “change in control” (as defined below) occurs and a participant is employed by us or any of our affiliates immediately prior to the consummation of the change in control, then the plan administrator, in its sole and absolute discretion, may (i) provide that any unvested or unexercisable portion of an award carrying a right to exercise will become fully vested and exercisable; and (ii) cause the restrictions, deferral limitations, payment conditions and forfeiture conditions applicable to any award granted under the 2021 Plan to lapse, and the awards will be deemed fully vested and any performance conditions imposed with respect to such awards will be deemed to be fully achieved at target performance levels. The administrator shall have discretion in connection with such change in control to provide that all outstanding and unexercised options and SARs shall expire upon the consummation of such change in control.

-21-


For purposes of the 2021 Plan, a “change in control” means, in summary, the first to occur of the following events: (i) a person or entity becomes the beneficial owner of more than 50% of our voting power; (ii) an unapproved change in the majority membership of our Board; (iii) a merger or consolidation of us or any of our subsidiaries, other than (A) a merger or consolidation that results in our voting securities continuing to represent 50% or more of the combined voting power of the surviving entity or its parent and our Board immediately prior to the merger or consolidation continuing to represent at least a majority of the board of directors of the surviving entity or its parent or (B) a merger or consolidation effected to implement a recapitalization in which no person is or becomes the beneficial owner of our voting securities representing more than 50% of our combined voting power; or (iv) stockholder approval of a plan of our complete liquidation or dissolution or the consummation of an agreement for the sale or disposition of substantially all of our assets, other than (A) a sale or disposition to an entity, more than 50% of the combined voting power of which is owned by our stockholders in substantially the same proportions as their ownership of us immediately prior to such sale or (B) a sale or disposition to an entity controlled by our Board. However, a change in control will not be deemed to have occurred as a result of any transaction or series of integrated transactions following which our stockholders, immediately prior thereto, hold immediately afterward the same proportionate equity interests in the entity that owns all or substantially all of our assets.

Tax Withholding

Each participant will be required to make arrangements satisfactory to the plan administrator regarding payment of up to the maximum statutory tax rates in the participant’s applicable jurisdiction with respect to any award granted under the 2021 Plan, as determined by us. We have the right, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to deduct any such taxes from any payment of any kind otherwise due to the participant. With the approval of the plan administrator, the participant may satisfy the foregoing requirement by either electing to have us withhold from delivery of shares of common stock, cash or other property, as applicable, or by delivering already owned unrestricted shares of common stock, in each case, having a value not exceeding the applicable taxes to be withheld and applied to the tax obligations. We may also use any other method of obtaining the necessary payment or proceeds, as permitted by applicable law, to satisfy our withholding obligation with respect to any award.

Amendment and Termination of the 2021 Plan

The 2021 Plan provides our Board with authority to amend, alter or terminate the 2021 Plan, but no such action impairs the rights of any participant with respect to outstanding awards without the participant’s consent. The plan administrator may amend an award, prospectively or retroactively, but no such amendment may materially impair the rights of any participant without the participant’s consent. Stockholder approval of any such action will be obtained if required to comply with applicable law. The 2021 Plan will terminate on the tenth anniversary of the Effective Date (although awards granted before that time will remain outstanding in accordance with their terms).

Clawback. If we are required to prepare a financial restatement due to the material non-compliance with any financial reporting requirement, then the plan administrator may require any Section 16 officer to repay or forfeit to us that part of the cash or equity incentive compensation received by that Section 16 officer during the preceding three years that the plan administrator determines was in excess of the amount that such Section 16 officer would have received had such cash or equity incentive compensation been calculated based on the financial results reported in the restated financial statement. The plan administrator may take into account any factors it deems reasonable in determining whether to seek recoupment of previously paid cash or equity incentive compensation and how much of such compensation to recoup from each Section 16 officer (which need not be the same amount or proportion for each Section 16 officer). The amount and form of the incentive compensation to be recouped shall be determined by the administrator in its sole and absolute discretion.

US Federal Income Tax Consequences

The following is a summary of certain United States federal income tax consequences of awards under the 2021 Plan. It does not purport to be a complete description of all applicable rules, and those rules (including those summarized here) are subject to change.
Non-Qualified Stock Options. A participant who has been granted a non-qualified stock option will not recognize taxable income upon the grant of a non-qualified stock option. Rather, at the time of exercise of such non-qualified stock option, the participant will recognize ordinary income for income tax purposes in an amount equal to the excess of the fair market value of the shares of common stock purchased over the exercise price. We generally will be entitled to a tax deduction at such time and in the same amount that the participant recognizes ordinary income. If shares of common stock acquired upon exercise of a non-qualified stock option are later sold or exchanged, then the difference between the amount received upon such sale or exchange and the fair market value of such shares on the date of such exercise will generally be taxable as long-term or short-term capital gain or loss (if the shares are a capital asset of the participant) depending upon the length of time such shares were held by the participant.

-22-


Incentive Stock Options. In general, no taxable income is realized by a participant upon the grant of an ISO. If shares of common stock are purchased by a participant, or option shares, pursuant to the exercise of an ISO granted under the 2021 Plan and the participant does not dispose of the option shares within the two-year period after the date of grant or within one year after the receipt of such option shares by the participant, such disposition a disqualifying disposition, then, generally (1) the participant will not realize ordinary income upon exercise and (2) upon sale of such option shares, any amount realized in excess of the exercise price paid for the option shares will be taxed to such participant as capital gain (or loss). The amount by which the fair market value of the common stock on the exercise date of an ISO exceeds the purchase price generally will constitute an item which increases the participant’s “alternative minimum taxable income.” If option shares acquired upon the exercise of an ISO are disposed of in a disqualifying disposition, the participant generally would include in ordinary income in the year of disposition an amount equal to the excess of the fair market value of the option shares at the time of exercise (or, if less, the amount realized on the disposition of the option shares), over the exercise price paid for the option shares. Subject to certain exceptions, an option generally will not be treated as an ISO if it is exercised more than three months following termination of employment. If an ISO is exercised at a time when it no longer qualifies as an ISO, such option will be treated as a nonqualified stock option as discussed above. In general, we will receive an income tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount as the participant recognizes ordinary income.

Stock Appreciation Rights. A participant who is granted an SAR generally will not recognize ordinary income upon receipt of the SAR. Rather, at the time of exercise of such SAR, the participant will recognize ordinary income for income tax purposes in an amount equal to the value of any cash received and the fair market value on the date of exercise of any shares of common stock received. We generally will be entitled to a tax deduction at such time and in the same amount, if any, that the participant recognizes as ordinary income. The participant’s tax basis in any shares of common stock received upon exercise of an SAR will be the fair market value of the shares of common stock on the date of exercise, and if the shares are later sold or exchanged, then the difference between the amount received upon such sale or exchange and the fair market value of such shares on the date of exercise will generally be taxable as long-term or short-term capital gain or loss (if the shares are a capital asset of the participant) depending upon the length of time such shares were held by the participant.

Restricted Stock. A participant generally will not be taxed upon the grant of restricted stock, but rather will recognize ordinary income in an amount equal to the fair market value of the shares of common stock at the earlier of the time the shares become transferable or are no longer subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture (within the meaning of the Code). We generally will be entitled to a deduction at the time when, and in the amount that, the participant recognizes ordinary income on account of the lapse of the restrictions. A participant’s tax basis in the shares of common stock will equal their fair market value at the time the restrictions lapse, and the participant’s holding period for capital gains purposes will begin at that time. Any cash dividends paid on the shares of common stock before the restrictions lapse will be taxable to the participant as additional compensation and not as dividend income, unless the individual has made an election under Section 83(b) of the Code. Under Section 83(b) of the Code, a participant may elect to recognize ordinary income at the time the restricted shares are awarded in an amount equal to their fair market value at that time, notwithstanding the fact that such stock is subject to restrictions or transfer and a substantial risk of forfeiture. If such an election is made, no additional taxable income will be recognized by such participant at the time the restrictions lapse, the participant will have a tax basis in the shares of common stock equal to their fair market value on the date of their award, and the participant’s holding period for capital gains purposes will begin at that time. We generally will be entitled to a tax deduction at the time when, and to the extent that, ordinary income is recognized by such participant.

Restricted Stock Units. In general, the grant of RSUs will not result in income for the participant or in a tax deduction for us. Upon the settlement of such an award in cash or shares of common stock, the participant will recognize ordinary income equal to the aggregate value of the payment received, and we generally will be entitled to a tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount.

-23-


Other Awards. With respect to other stock-based awards, generally when the participant receives payment in respect of the award, the amount of cash and/or the fair market value of any shares of common stock or other property received will be ordinary income to the participant, and we generally will be entitled to a tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount.

New Plan Benefits

Future grants under the 2021 Plan will be made at the discretion of the plan administrator and, accordingly, are not yet determinable. In addition, benefits under the 2021 Plan will depend on a number of factors, including the fair market value of our common stock on future dates and the exercise decisions made by participants. Consequently, at this time, it is not possible to determine the future benefits that might be received by participants receiving discretionary grants under the 2021 Plan.

Interests of Officers and Directors in this Proposal

Members of our Board and our executive officers are eligible to receive awards under the terms of the 2021 Plan, including through certain outstanding employment agreements and grants, and they therefore have a substantial interest in Proposal 3.

Required Vote of Stockholders

The affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the Annual Meeting is required to approve the adoption of the 2021 Plan.

Board Recommendation

The Board unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” Proposal 3.

PROPOSAL 4

REINCORPORATION OF THE COMPANY
FROM THE STATE OF TEXAS TO THE STATE OF DELAWARE

General

The Board has unanimously approved and recommends that shareholders approve the reincorporation of the Company from the State of Texas to the State of Delaware (the “Reincorporation” or the “Reincorporation Proposal”). This approval and recommendation have been provided by the entire Board. The Company would effect the Reincorporation by merging with and into a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware (“Delaware Merger Sub” and the surviving entity in the Reincorporation, “New Cipherloc”) pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger in form attached hereto as Appendix B (the “Agreement and Plan of Merger”). As part of the Reincorporation, the name of New Cipherloc following the completion of the Reincorporation will continue to be “Cipherloc Corporation.” Additionally, the authorized capital of the Company will be 681,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. At the effective time of the merger (the “Effective Time”), the Certificate of Incorporation in the form attached hereto as Appendix C (the “Delaware Certificate of Incorporation”), and the Bylaws in the form attached hereto Appendix D (the “Delaware Bylaws”), will govern New Cipherloc. All descriptions of the Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware Bylaws are qualified by and subject to the more complete information set forth in those documents.

Upon the Effective Time:

(1) The affairs of the Company will cease to be governed by Texas corporation laws and will become subject to Delaware corporation laws. See “Comparison of Shareholder Rights Before and After the Reincorporation” below.

(2) The legal existence of the Company as a separate Texas corporation will cease and New Cipherloc will continue with all of the rights, titles and interests of the Company, will continue with the same officers and directors of the Company, the rights of creditors of the Company will continue to exist as creditors of New Cipherloc, and the shareholders of the Company will be the stockholders of New Cipherloc.

(3) Each outstanding share of our common stock of the Company will automatically be converted into one share of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of New Cipherloc (“New Cipherloc Common Stock”).

(4) Each outstanding option and warrant to purchase our common stock will automatically be converted into an option or warrant, as the case may be, to purchase an identical number of shares of New Cipherloc Common Stock at the same exercise price per share and upon the same terms and subject to the same conditions set forth in the applicable plan, related award agreement, option agreement, or warrant agreement, as applicable.

(5) New Cipherloc Common Stock will become issuable upon the vesting of the Company’s existing restricted shares and awards of restricted stock units upon the same terms and subject to the same conditions set forth in the applicable plan and related award agreement.

(6) Our ticker symbol “CLOK” will remain unchanged as a result of the Reincorporation, and the New Cipherloc Common Stock will trade under that symbol.

-25-


(7) All of the Company’s employee benefit and incentive plans and arrangements will be assumed by New Cipherloc upon the same terms and subject to the same conditions set forth in such plans and arrangements as before the Reincorporation.

The Reincorporation will become effective upon filing of certificates of merger with the Secretary of State of each of Delaware and Texas, which filings are expected to be made as soon as practicable after shareholder adoption of the Agreement and Plan of Merger. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, the Reincorporation may be abandoned by the Board at any time before the Effective Time (whether before or after approval by the Company’s shareholders). In addition, the Company and New Cipherloc may amend the Agreement and Plan of Merger, the Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware Bylaws at any time before the Effective Time (whether before or after approval by the Company’s shareholders), provided that after approval by the Company’s shareholders, no amendment may be made that by law requires further approval by the Company’s shareholders without obtaining such further approval.

No regulatory approval (other than various filings with Secretary of State of Texas and Delaware discussed above) is required to effect the Reincorporation. The terms of the Reincorporation are described in more detail in the Agreement and Plan of Merger and all descriptions of the Reincorporation are qualified by and subject to the more complete information therein.

Reasons for the Reincorporation

The State of Delaware has been a leading jurisdiction in adopting a comprehensive and coherent set of corporate laws that are responsive to the evolving legal and business needs of corporations organized under Delaware law. Our Board believes that it is important for the Company to be able to draw upon well-established principles of corporate governance in making legal and business decisions. The prominence and predictability of Delaware corporate law provide a reliable foundation on which our governance decisions can be based, and we believe that our shareholders will benefit from the responsiveness of Delaware corporate law to their needs. In addition, the Board believes that direct benefits that Delaware law provides to a corporation indirectly benefit our shareholders, who are our owners. Specifically, our Board believes that there are several benefits of the Reincorporation, as summarized below.

Access to Specialized Courts

Delaware has a specialized court of equity called the Court of Chancery that hears corporate law cases. The Delaware Court of Chancery operates under rules that are intended to ensure litigation of disputes in a timely and effective way, keeping in mind the timelines and constraints of business decision-making and market dynamics. The appellate process on decisions emanating from the Court of Chancery is similarly streamlined, and the justices of Delaware appellate courts tend to have substantial experience with corporate cases because of the relatively higher volume of these cases in the Delaware courts. As the leading state of incorporation for both private and public companies, Delaware has developed a vast body of corporate law that helps to promote greater consistency and predictability in judicial rulings. In contrast, Texas does not have a similar specialized court established to hear corporate law cases. Rather, disputes involving questions of Texas corporate law are either heard in law courts of general jurisdiction, alongside other civil cases, or, if federal jurisdiction exists, a federal district court. These courts hear many different types of cases, and the cases may be heard before judges or juries with limited corporate law experience. As a result, corporate law cases brought in Texas may not proceed as expeditiously as cases brought in Delaware and the outcomes in such courts may be less consistent and predictable.

Delaware has one of the most modern statutory corporation codes, which is revised regularly in response to changing legal and business needs of corporations. The Delaware legislature is particularly responsive to developments in modern corporate law and Delaware has proven sensitive to changing needs of corporations and their shareholders. The Delaware Secretary of State is viewed as particularly flexible and responsive in its administration of the filings required for mergers, acquisitions and other corporate transactions. Delaware has become a preferred domicile for most major American corporations and the Delaware corporate law and administrative practices have become comparatively well-known and widely understood. As a result of these factors, it is anticipated that the Delaware corporate law will provide greater efficiency, predictability and flexibility in the Company’s legal affairs than is presently available under Texas law. In addition, Delaware case law provides a well-developed body of law defining the proper duties and decision-making processes expected of boards of directors in evaluating potential or proposed extraordinary corporate transactions.

Enhanced Ability to Attract and Retain Directors and Officers

The Board believes that the Reincorporation will enhance our ability to attract and retain qualified directors and officers, as well as encourage directors and officers to continue to make independent decisions in good faith on behalf of the Company. We are in a competitive industry and compete for talented individuals to serve on our management team and on our Board. The vast majority of public companies are incorporated in Delaware. Not only is Delaware law more familiar to directors, it also offers greater certainty and stability from the perspective of those who serve as corporate officers and directors. The parameters of director and officer liability are more extensively addressed in Delaware court decisions and are therefore better defined and better understood than under Texas law. The Board believes that the Reincorporation will enhance our ability to recruit and retain directors and officers. We believe that the better understood and comparatively stable corporate environment afforded by Delaware law will enable us to compete more effectively with other public companies in the recruitment of talented and experienced directors and officers.

We have provided a discussion of differences between the Delaware and Texas corporate laws below under the heading “Comparison of Shareholder Rights Before and After the Reincorporation.”

No Change in Business, Jobs, Physical Location, Etc.

The Reincorporation Proposal will effect a change in the legal domicile of the Company and other changes of a legal nature, the most significant of which are described below under the heading “-Comparison of Shareholder Rights Before and After the Reincorporation.” The Reincorporation Proposal will not result in any change in headquarters, business, jobs, management, location of any of our offices or facilities, number of employees, assets, liabilities or net worth (other than as a result of the costs incident to the Reincorporation). Our management, including all directors and officers, will remain the same in connection with the reincorporation and will have identical positions with New Cipherloc. To the extent the Reincorporation will require the consent or waiver of a third party, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such consent or waiver before completing the Reincorporation. If a material consent cannot be obtained, the Company will not proceed with the Reincorporation. The Reincorporation will not otherwise affect any of the Company’s material contracts with any third parties and the Company’s rights and obligations under such material contractual arrangements will continue as rights and obligations of New Cipherloc as a Delaware corporation. Because the Company’s corporate headquarters, management and employees are located in Austin, Texas, the Company’s status as a Delaware corporation physically located in Texas will require the Company to comply with reporting and tax obligations in Delaware. The Board has considered the additional franchise tax obligations and believes that the benefits discussed above outweigh the additional costs.

Comparison of Shareholder Rights Before and After the Reincorporation

The Reincorporation will effect some changes in the rights of the Company’s shareholders. This is as a result of differences between the Texas Business Organizations Code (“TBOC”) and the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (“DGCL”), as well as differences between each of the Company’s charter documents before and after the Reincorporation. Summarized below are the most significant differences between the rights of the Company’s shareholders before and after the Reincorporation. The differences between the current Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation of the Company (the “Texas Articles of Incorporation”) and Third Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company (the “Texas Bylaws”) and the proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware Bylaws, as relevant to such rights, are noted within this summary. The summary below is not intended to be relied upon as an exhaustive list of all the differences or a complete description of the differences resulting from the Reincorporation. Furthermore, this summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the DGCL, the Texas Articles of Incorporation and Texas Bylaws, the TBOC, and the Company’s proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware Bylaws.

-27-


Delaware Texas
Business Combinations Statute
Unless its original certificate of incorporation provides that Section 203 does not apply to the corporation, DGCL Section 203 prohibits certain business combinations between a Delaware corporation and an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years after the time the interested stockholder acquired its stock.

“Interested stockholder” is broadly defined as a person (including the affiliates and associates of such person) that is directly or indirectly a beneficial owner of 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of a Delaware corporation.

Business combinations include: (i) certain mergers and consolidations, (ii) sales, leases, exchanges, mortgages, pledges, transfers or other dispositions of assets having an aggregate market value of 10% or more of either the consolidated assets or the outstanding stock of a company, and (iii) certain transactions that would result in the issuance or transfer of stock of a company, increase the interested stockholder’s proportionate share of ownership in a company, or grant the interested stockholder disproportionate financial benefits.

The DGCL provides an exception to this prohibition if: (i) the business combination or the transaction in which the stockholder became an interested stockholder is approved by that company’s board of directors prior to the time the interested stockholder became an interested stockholder, (ii) the interested stockholder acquired at least 85% of the voting stock of that company in the transaction in which it became an interested stockholder, or (iii) the business combination is approved by a majority of the board of directors and the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the votes entitled to be cast by disinterested stockholders at an annual or annual meeting (and not by written consent).

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not opt out of Section 203.


Unless its certificate of formation or bylaws provide otherwise, the TBOC prohibits Texas public corporations from entering into certain business combinations with affiliated shareholders, including certain (i) mergers, share exchanges and conversions, (ii) sales, leases, exchanges, mortgages, pledges, transfers and other dispositions of assets having an aggregate market value of 10% or more of (a) the aggregate market value of the consolidated assets of a company, (b) the aggregate market value of the outstanding voting stock of a company or (c) the earning power or net income of a company on a consolidated basis, (iii) the issuance or transfer of shares of a company to an affiliated shareholder or its associate, except by the exercise of warrants or rights to purchase shares, or a share dividend paid pro rata to all shareholders, (iv) reclassifications of securities that would result in increasing the proportionate ownership percentage of voting shares beneficially owned by the affiliated shareholder or its associates, except for immaterial changes due to fractional share adjustments, (v) liquidation proposals with an affiliated shareholder, and (vi) the receipt by an affiliated shareholder or its associate of the benefit of a loan, advance, guarantee, pledge or other financial assistance or tax advantage provided by or through the company except proportionately as a shareholder, in each case, for a period of three years after the date the shareholder obtained “affiliated shareholder” status.

“Affiliated shareholder” is defined as a person who beneficially owns (or has owned within the preceding three-year period) 20% or more of the outstanding voting shares of a Texas public corporation.

The TBOC provides an exception to this prohibition if: (i) the board of directors of the corporation approves the business combination or the acquisition of shares by the affiliated shareholder prior to the affiliated shareholder becoming an affiliated shareholder, or (ii) two-thirds of the unaffiliated shareholders approve the transaction at a meeting held no earlier than six months after the shareholder acquires such ownership. Such shareholder approval may not be by written consent.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws do not address this issue.

-28-


Sales, Leases, Exchanges or Other Dispositions
A Delaware corporation may sell, lease or exchange all or substantially all of its property and assets when and as authorized by the board of directors and by a majority in voting power of the outstanding stock of the corporation entitled to vote thereon, but the certificate of incorporation may provide for a greater vote.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not provide for a greater vote.

Generally, the sale, lease, exchange or other disposition of all, or substantially all, of the property and assets of a Texas corporation requires the approval of the board of directors and, except as set forth in the certificate of formation of the company, the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of the corporation entitled to vote. No such approval is required, however, if the transaction is made in the usual and regular course of the corporation’s business. Under Texas law, the transfer of substantially all of a corporation’s assets in such a manner that the corporation continues directly or indirectly to engage in one or more businesses is deemed to be in the usual and regular course of its business.

The Texas Articles of Incorporation and Texas Bylaws do not address this issue.

Approval of Mergers
Subject to certain exceptions, under Delaware law, mergers must be approved by the stockholders. When stockholder approval is required, the vote required is a majority in voting power of the outstanding stock of the corporation entitled to vote thereon, but the certificate of incorporation may provide for a greater vote of the corporation’s stockholders.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not provide for a greater vote.

Under Texas law, any merger with a third party requires approval by holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of the Texas corporation entitled to vote unless a different threshold, not less than a majority, is specified in the certificate of formation of the corporation.

The Texas Articles of Incorporation and Texas Bylaws do not set forth a different approval standard.


Appraisal Rights
Under Delaware law, subject to exceptions for certain mergers and consolidations, stockholders who do not vote in favor of a merger or consolidation and otherwise comply with applicable statutory provisions are entitled to appraisal rights in connection with such merger or consolidation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, appraisal rights are not available in the event of a merger or consolidation of the corporation if the stock of the Delaware corporation is listed on a national securities exchange (the Company currently meets this condition by virtue of its listing on the NASDAQ Global Select Market) or if such stock is held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders. Even if appraisal rights would not otherwise be available under Delaware law in the cases described above, stockholders would still have appraisal rights if they were required by the terms of the agreement of merger or consolidation to accept for their stock anything other than:

(1) shares of stock of the surviving corporation or resulting corporation or depository receipts in respect thereof;

(2) shares of stock, or depository receipts in respect thereof, of any other corporation which shares (or depository receipts) at the effective date of the merger or consolidation will be either listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders;

(3) cash in lieu of fractional shares or depository receipts; or

(4) a combination of such shares or depository receipts and such cash in lieu of fractional shares or depository receipts.


Under Delaware law, any corporation may provide in its certificate of incorporation that appraisal rights will also be available as a result of an amendment to its certificate of incorporation, any merger or consolidation in which the corporation is a constituent corporation, or the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the corporation.

Except for the limited classes of mergers, consolidations, sales and asset dispositions for which no shareholder approval is required under Texas law, shareholders of Texas corporations with voting rights have rights of dissent and appraisal in the event of a merger, consolidation, conversion, sale, lease, exchange or other disposition of all, or substantially all, the property and assets of the corporation. However, a shareholder of a Texas corporation has no rights of dissent and appraisal with respect to any plan of merger or conversion in which there is a single surviving or new domestic or foreign corporation, or with respect to any plan of exchange if, in each case:

(1) the ownership interest, or a depository receipt in respect of the ownership interest, held by the owner is part of a class or series of ownership interests, or depository receipts in respect of ownership interests, that are, on the record date set for purposes of determining which owners are entitled to vote on the plan of merger, conversion, or exchange, as appropriate, either:

(A) listed on a national securities exchange; or

(B) held of record by at least 2,000 owners;

(2) the owner is not required by the terms of the plan of merger, conversion, or exchange, as appropriate, to accept for the owner’s ownership interest any consideration that is different from the consideration to be provided to any other holder of an ownership interest of the same class or series as the ownership interest held by the owner, other than cash instead of fractional shares or interests the owner would otherwise be entitled to receive; and

(3) the owner is not required by the terms of the plan of merger, conversion, or exchange, as appropriate, to accept for the owner’s ownership interest any consideration other than:


-29-


The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not include such a provision. (A) ownership interest, or depository receipts in respect of ownership interests, of another entity of the same general organizational type that, immediately after the effective date of the merger, conversion, or exchange, as appropriate, will be part of a class or series of ownership interests, or depository receipts in respect ownership interests, that are: (i) listed on a national securities exchange or authorized for listing on the exchange on official notice of issuance; or (ii) held of record by at least 2,000 owners; (B) cash instead of fractional ownership interests the owner would otherwise be entitled to receive; or (C) any combination of the ownership interests and cash described above.
Shareholder Consent to Action Without a Meeting
Under Delaware law, unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation, any action that can be taken at a meeting of the stockholders can be taken without such meeting if written consent thereto is signed by the holders of outstanding stock having the minimum number of votes necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were presented and voted.




The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not prohibit action by written consent.



Under Texas law, any action that may be taken at a meeting of the shareholders may be taken without a meeting if written consent thereto is signed by all the holders of shares entitled to vote on that action. The certificate of formation of a Texas corporation may provide that action by written consent in lieu of a meeting may be taken by the holders of that number of votes which would be required to take the action which is the subject of the consent at a meeting at which each of the shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation allow action by one or more written consents if such consent or consents, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holder or holders of shares having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to take such action at a meeting at which the holders of all shares entitled to vote on the action were presented and voted.
Procedures for Filling Vacant Directorships
Under Delaware law, unless the certificate of incorporation or bylaws provide otherwise, vacancies and newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors may be filled by a majority of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director.




The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and Delaware Bylaws provide that a vacancy may be filled by the vote of a majority of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum of the board of directors.

Under Texas law, unless otherwise authorized by the corporation’s certificate of formation, any vacancy occurring in the board of directors may, unless otherwise authorized by a corporation’s certificate of formation, fill a vacancy or a newly created vacancy in a director position only: (i) by the affirmative vote of the majority of the directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, (ii) by the sole remaining director, or (iii) by the affirmative vote of the shareholders.

A directorship to be filled because of an increase in the number of directors may be filled by the shareholders or by the board of directors for a term of office continuing only until the next election of one or more directors by the shareholders. The board of directors may not fill more than two such directorships during the period between any two successive annual meetings of shareholders.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation provide that a vacancy may be filled by (a) the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote thereon at an annual or special meeting of shareholders called for that purpose, or (b) a majority of the remaining directors though less than a quorum of the board of directors.

Right to Call Meetings
Delaware law provides that meetings, including annual meetings, of the stockholders may be called by the board of directors or such other persons as are authorized in the certificate of incorporation or bylaws.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation and the Delaware Bylaws provide that, subject to the rights of the holders of preferred stock, special meetings of the stockholders may be called by a majority of the board of directors at any time and are required to be called upon the written request of the holders of 25% of the voting power of the Company’s outstanding stock.

Unless otherwise specified in the corporation’s certificate of formation holders of not less than 10% of all of the shares entitled to vote at the proposed meeting have the right to call a special shareholders’ meeting. The certificate of formation may allow for annual meetings to be called by a number of shares entitled to vote greater than or less than 10%, but it may not set the required number of shares above 50%. The president, board of directors, or any other person authorized to call special meetings by the certificate of formation or bylaws of the corporation may also call special shareholders’ meetings.

The existing Texas Bylaws provide that special meetings of shareholders may be called by the president or the board of directors any time and are required to be called upon the request of the holder(s) of not less than 10% of the outstanding shares of the Company entitled to vote at the meeting.

Voting by Proxy
Under Delaware law, a stockholder may authorize another person or persons to act for such stockholder by proxy. A proxy shall not be voted or acted upon after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period.

Under Texas law, a shareholder may authorize another person or persons to act for such shareholder by proxy. A proxy is only valid for eleven months from the date it is executed unless otherwise provided in the proxy.
Charter Amendments
Delaware law provides that amendments to the certificate of incorporation must be approved by the board of directors and thereafter by holders of a majority in voting power of the corporation’s stock entitled to vote thereon, and a majority in voting power of each class entitled to a separate class vote, unless the certificate of incorporation provides for a greater vote. A separate class vote is provided for amendments to the certificate of incorporation changing the number of authorized shares of a class of stock (unless the certificate of incorporation provides otherwise), changing the par value of a class of stock, or adversely affecting the rights, powers and preferences of the class of stock.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation does not alter the approval requirement for amendments under Delaware law.


Under Texas law, an amendment to the certificate of formation requires the approval of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of the corporation entitled to vote, unless a different threshold, not less than a majority, is specified in the certificate of formation.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation do not alter the approval requirement for amendments under Texas law.



-31-


Bylaw Amendments
Under Delaware law, stockholders of a corporation entitled to vote have the right to amend, repeal or adopt the bylaws. If the corporation’s certificate of incorporation so provides, the corporation’s board of directors may also have the right to amend, repeal or adopt the bylaws.

The proposed Delaware Bylaws provide that the bylaws may be amended, repealed, altered or adopted (i) by stockholder action with the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the voting power of all the shares entitled to vote thereon or (ii) by the board of directors.


Generally, under Texas law, the board of directors may amend, repeal or adopt a corporation’s bylaws. However, a corporation’s certificate of formation may reserve this power, in whole or in part, exclusively to the shareholders. Similarly, the shareholders, in amending, repealing or adopting a particular bylaw, may expressly provide that the board of directors may not amend, readopt or repeal that bylaw. Texas case law permits the corporation to increase the required threshold of shareholders necessary to amend the bylaws.

The existing Texas Bylaws allow for amendments of the Texas Bylaws by the Board, subject to amendment, repeal or adoption of new bylaws by action of the shareholders and unless the shareholders in amending, repealing or adopting a particular bylaw expressly provide that the board of directors may not amend or repeal such bylaw.

Removal of Directors
Under Delaware law, subject to the exceptions discussed below, holders of a majority in voting power of the corporation’s capital stock entitled to vote at an election of directors may remove a director with or without cause.

If the board of directors of a Delaware corporation is classified (i.e., elected for staggered terms), a director may only be removed for cause, unless the corporation’s certificate of incorporation provides otherwise.

If a corporation uses cumulative voting and less than the entire board is to be removed, no director may be removed without cause if the votes cast against his or her removal would be sufficient to elect him or her if then cumulatively voted at an election of the entire board of directors. Where a corporation’s certificate of incorporation provides that separate classes or series of stockholders are entitled, as such a class or series, to elect separate directors, in calculating the sufficiency of votes for removal of such a director, only the votes of the holders of such a class or series are considered.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation, does not provide for a classified board of directors, and allows the removal of directors with or without cause and with the approval of at least majority of the voting power of all the outstanding shares of capital stock entitled to vote thereon.

Under Texas law, subject to the exceptions discussed below or as otherwise provided by the certificate of formation or bylaws of a corporation, the shareholders may remove a director, with or without cause, by a vote of the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote at an election of the directors.

If the corporation’s directors serve staggered terms, a director may not be removed except for cause unless the certificate of formation provides otherwise.

If the certificate of formation permits cumulative voting and less than the entire board is to be removed, a director may not be removed if the votes cast against the removal would be sufficient to elect him or her if cumulatively voted at an election of the entire board of directors. Where a corporation’s certificate of formation provides that separate classes or series of shareholders are entitled, as such a class or series, to elect separate directors, in calculating the sufficiency of votes for removal of such a director, only the votes of the holders of such class or series are considered.

The existing Texas Bylaws provide that directors may be removed at a meeting of shareholders duly called for the purpose of removal by the holders of a majority of the shares then entitled to vote at an election of directors or by unanimous written consent of the shareholders without a meeting.

-32-


Inspection of Books and Records
Under Delaware law, any stockholder may inspect the corporation’s books and records upon written demand under oath stating the purpose of the inspection. If the corporation refuses to permit inspection or does not reply to the demand within five business days after the demand has been made, the stockholder may apply to the Court of Chancery for an order to compel such inspection.

Under Texas law, a shareholder may, upon written demand stating a proper purpose, examine and copy the books, records of account, minutes and share transfer records of a corporation if such shareholder holds at least 5% of the outstanding shares of stock of the corporation or has been a holder of shares for at least six months prior to such demand.
Distributions and Dividends
Under Delaware law, a corporation may, subject to any restrictions contained in its certificate of incorporation, pay dividends out of surplus and, if there is not surplus, out of net profits for the current and/or the preceding fiscal year, unless the capital of the corporation is less than the capital represented by issued and outstanding stock having preferences on asset distributions.

The proposed Delaware Bylaws provide that dividends may be declared as provided by law.

Under Texas law, a distribution is defined as a transfer of cash or other property (except a transfer of a corporation’s own shares or rights to acquire its own shares), or an issuance of debt, by a corporation to its shareholders in the form of: (i) a dividend on any class or series of the corporation’s outstanding shares, (ii) a purchase or redemption, directly or indirectly, of any of its own shares, or (iii) a payment in liquidation of all or a portion of its assets.

Under Texas law, a corporation may not make a distribution if such distribution violates its certificate of formation or, unless the distribution is in connection with the winding up and termination of the corporation and complies with the requirements relating thereto under the TBOC, if the corporation would be insolvent after the distribution or if the distribution exceeds, depending on the type of distribution, either the net assets or the surplus of the corporation.

The existing Texas Bylaws provide that distributions may be made as provided by law.

-33-


Stock Redemption and Repurchase Under Delaware law, a corporation may purchase or redeem shares of any class except when its capital is impaired or would be impaired by such purchase or redemption. A corporation may, however, purchase or redeem out of capital, shares that are entitled upon any distribution of its assets to a preference over another class or series of its stock, or, if no shares entitled to such a preference are outstanding, any of its own shares, if such shares are to be retired and the capital reduced.
As noted above, under Texas law, the purchase or redemption by a corporation of its shares constitutes a distribution. Accordingly, any such purchase or redemption is subject to the restrictions on distributions discussed above.

Upon the redemption or purchase of shares, the stated capital of the corporation shall be reduced by that part of the stated capital that was, at the time of the redemption or purchase, represented by those shares.

Indemnification of and Advancement of Expenses to Directors and Officers
The DGCL permits a corporation to indemnify present or former directors, officers, employees and agents and persons serving at the request of the corporation as officers, directors, employees or agents of another entity or employee benefit plan against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines, excise taxes and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with an action, suit or proceeding, other than an action by or in the right of the corporation, to which such indemnifiable person may be a party, provided such indemnifiable person shall have acted in good faith and in a manner such person shall have reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and in the case of a criminal proceeding, such person had no reasonable cause to believe such person’s conduct was unlawful. The termination of an action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or plea of nolo contendere does not, of itself, create a presumption that the applicable standard of conduct has not been met.

In connection with an action by or in the right of the corporation against an indemnifiable person, the corporation has the power to indemnify such person for expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred in connection with such suit (a) if such person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, but (b) if such person is found liable to the corporation, only if ordered by a court of law. The DGCL does not authorize indemnification of judgments, fines, excise taxes or amounts paid in settlement in derivative actions.

The DGCL provides that such section is not exclusive of any other indemnification rights, which may be granted by a corporation to its indemnifiable persons, but under Delaware law such person’s conduct must generally meet the standard of conduct required by the DGCL.

The DGCL also permits a corporation to pay in advance the expenses incurred by directors and officers in defending a proceeding brought against them in their capacities as such.

The proposed Delaware Bylaws provide for indemnification of directors and officers (including advancement of expenses) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Texas law permits a corporation to indemnify a director or former director, against judgments and expenses reasonably and actually incurred by the person in connection with a proceeding if the person: (i) acted in good faith, (ii) reasonably believed, in the case of conduct in the person’s official capacity, that the person’s conduct was in the corporation’s best interests, and otherwise, that the person’s conduct was not opposed to the corporation’s best interests, and (iii) in the case of a criminal proceeding, did not have a reasonable cause to believe the person’s conduct was unlawful.

If, however, the person is found liable to the corporation, or is found liable on the basis he received an improper personal benefit, then indemnification under Texas law is limited to the reimbursement of reasonable expenses actually incurred and no indemnification will be available if the person is found liable for: (i) willful or intentional misconduct in the performance of the person’s duty to the corporation, (ii) breach of the person’s duty of loyalty owed to the corporation, or (iii) an act or omission not committed in good faith that constitutes a breach of a duty owed by the person to the corporation.

The TBOC also permits a corporation to pay in advance or reimburse the expenses incurred by directors and officers in defending a proceeding brought against them in their capacities as such.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation provide for indemnification of directors (including advancement of expenses) to the extent permitted by applicable law.

-34-


Procedure for Indemnification
Delaware law provides that a determination that indemnification of a director or officer is appropriate must be made: (i) by a majority vote of directors who are not party to the proceeding, even though less than a quorum, (ii) by a committee of such directors designated by majority vote of such directors, even though less than a quorum, (iii) if there are no such directors or if such directors so direct, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion, or (iv) by stockholder vote.

The proposed Delaware Bylaws do not address this issue.

Texas law provides that a determination that indemnification is appropriate must be made: (i) by a majority vote of the directors who, at the time of the vote, are disinterested and independent, regardless of whether such directors constitute a quorum, (ii) by a majority vote of a special committee of the board of directors if the committee is designated by a majority vote of the directors who at the time of the vote are disinterested and independent and is composed solely of one or more directors who are disinterested and independent, (iii) by special legal counsel selected by majority vote under clauses (i) or (ii) above, (iv) by the shareholders in a vote that excludes those shares held by directors who, at the time of the vote, are not disinterested and independent, or (v) by a unanimous vote of the shareholders of the corporation.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation and Texas Bylaws do not address this issue.


Mandatory Indemnification
Delaware law requires indemnification for expenses actually and reasonably incurred with respect to any claim, issue or matter on which the director is successful on the merits or otherwise, in the defense of the proceeding.

Under Texas law, indemnification by the corporation for reasonable expenses actually incurred is mandatory only if the director is wholly successful, on the merits or otherwise, in the defense of the proceeding.
Insurance
Delaware law allows a corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in such a capacity or arising out of his status as such a person. This is so, regardless of whether the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against that liability.

Under Delaware law, a corporation may also establish and maintain arrangements, other than insurance, to protect such persons, including a trust fund or surety arrangement.
Texas law is substantially the same as Delaware law for this issue.

-35-


Persons Covered Delaware law permits the same indemnification rights to officers, employees and agents that it provides for directors.
Texas law addresses the indemnification of officers, employees and agents separately from indemnification for directors. The corporation may indemnify and advance expenses to an officer, employee or agent as provided by (i) the corporation’s governing documents, (ii) general or specific action of the board of directors, (iii) resolution of the shareholders, (iv) contract, or (v) common law. The corporation must indemnify an officer to the same extent as a director. The procedure for indemnification for directors under Texas law summarized above need not be followed for officers, employees or agents.

Limited Liability of Directors
Delaware law permits the adoption of a provision in the certificate of incorporation limiting or eliminating the monetary liability of a director to a corporation or its stockholders by reason of a director’s breach of the fiduciary duty of care.

Delaware law does not, however, permit any limitation of the liability of a director for: (i) breaching the duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) failing to act in good faith, (iii) engaging in intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iv) obtaining an improper personal benefit from the corporation, or (v) declaring an illegal dividend or approving an illegal stock purchase or redemption.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation eliminates the monetary liability of a director to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Texas law permits a corporation to eliminate or limit in its certificate of formation liability of a director for monetary damages to the corporation or its shareholders for his or his acts or omissions in such person’s capacity as a director.

Texas law does not, however, permit any limitation or elimination of the liability of a director for: (i) a breach of the duty of loyalty to the corporation or its shareholders, (ii) an act or omission not in good faith that constitutes a breach of duty of the person to the corporation or involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) a transaction from which the director obtains an improper benefit, or (iv) an act or omission for which liability of a director is expressly provided by an applicable statute.

The existing Texas Articles of Incorporation eliminate the monetary liability of a director to the extent permitted by applicable law.

-36-


Fiduciary Duties of Directors
Delaware imposes duties of care and loyalty on directors of Delaware corporations. If not rebutted, the business judgment rule provides a presumption that a director acted on an informed basis, in good faith, and in the honest belief that the action taken was in the best interests of the corporation. Delaware imposes liability upon directors who willfully or recklessly disregard their duties as directors so as to constitute an utter failure to carry out their fiduciary duties.

Directors of a Delaware corporation owe fiduciary duties both to the stockholders and the corporation.

Texas imposes duties of loyalty, care and obedience on directors of Texas corporations, but will generally not, absent fraud, impose liability upon a non-interested director unless the action challenged is outside of the express purpose of the corporation or inconsistent with an express limitation on authority.

Directors of a Texas corporation owe fiduciary duties only to the corporation.
Shareholder Rights Plans Delaware courts have generally allowed the use of shareholder rights plans by a corporation if their adoption is reasonable in response to a reasonably identified threat posed. Texas statutorily permits shareholder rights plans. Texas courts have provided limited guidance on the extent to which shareholder rights plans are permitted.

Considerations of Directors Delaware does not have a statute stating what constituencies the board may consider when making decisions.
Texas corporate law includes statutory approval of directors considering both the long-term and short-term interests of the corporation and the shareholders.

Shareholder Actions
Under Delaware law, stockholders can bring both derivate actions on behalf of the corporation and direct claims on their own behalf or on behalf of a class of stockholders directly injured by the board’s actions. With respect to derivative actions, stockholders must either make a demand on the board to bring the action itself or allege demand futility. Generally, lawsuits alleging breaches of fiduciary duties brought in Delaware state court are tried in the Court of Chancery without a jury.


Texas generally requires that lawsuits against directors be brought derivatively by the corporation only after making demand on the corporation’s board setting out the contours of the demand. Texas law may, in certain circumstances, such as in a proceeding determining liability of directors, allow for a jury trial.

Forum Selection
Delaware law permits corporations to include in their certificates of incorporation or bylaws a provision that confers exclusive jurisdiction on the courts of Delaware as to any internal corporate claims, which include derivative claims that are based upon breach of duties of a director or stockholder in such capacity and other matters for which the DGCL confers jurisdiction upon the Delaware courts.

The proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation makes this election regarding the Chancery Court’s exclusive jurisdiction to the maximum extent allowable.

Texas law does not have an authorizing statutory provision similar to the forum selection provision in the DGCL.

The existing Texas Bylaws do not address forum selection.

Certificated Stock

At the effective time of the Reincorporation, each outstanding share of common stock of the Company will automatically be converted into one share of New Cipherloc Common Stock. If you hold physical stock certificates, you do not have to exchange your existing stock certificates of the Company for stock certificates of the resulting Delaware corporation; however, after the Reincorporation, any shareholder desiring a new form of stock certificate may submit the existing stock certificate to Pacific Stock Transfer Company, the Company’s transfer agent.

Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Reincorporation

The proposed Reincorporation is expected to qualify as a reorganization within the meaning of Section 368(a)(1)(F) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). Assuming the Reincorporation qualifies as a tax-free reorganization, we believe that for federal income tax purposes no gain or loss will be recognized by the Company, New Cipherloc or the shareholders of the Company who receive New Cipherloc Common Stock for their Company Common Stock in connection with the Reincorporation. The aggregate tax basis of New Cipherloc Common Stock received by a shareholder of the Company as a result of the Reincorporation will be the same as the aggregate tax basis of the Company Common Stock converted into that New Cipherloc Common Stock held by that shareholder as a capital asset at the time of the Reincorporation. Each shareholder’s holding period of the New Cipherloc Common Stock received in the Reincorporation will include the holding period of the Company Common Stock converted into that New Cipherloc Common Stock, provided the shares are held by such shareholder as a capital asset at the time of the Reincorporation.

This proxy statement only discusses U.S. federal income tax consequences and has done so only for general information. It does not address all of the U.S. federal income tax consequences that may be relevant to particular shareholders based upon individual circumstances or to shareholders who are subject to special rules, such as financial institutions, tax-exempt organizations, insurance companies, dealers in securities, shareholders who hold their stock through a partnership or as part of a straddle or other derivative arrangement, foreign holders or holders who acquired their shares as compensation, whether through employee stock options or otherwise. This proxy statement does not address the tax consequences under state, local or foreign laws. State, local or foreign income tax consequences to shareholders may vary from the federal income tax consequences described above, and shareholders are urged to consult their own tax advisors as to the consequences to them of the Reincorporation under all applicable tax laws.

This discussion is based on the Code, applicable Treasury Regulations, judicial authority and administrative rulings and practice, all in effect as of the date of this proxy statement, all of which are subject to differing interpretations and change, possibly with retroactive effect. The Company has neither requested nor received a tax opinion from legal counsel or rulings from the Internal Revenue Service regarding the consequences of the Reincorporation. There can be no assurance that future legislation, regulations, administrative rulings or court decisions would not alter the consequences discussed above.

You should consult your own tax advisor to determine the particular tax consequences to you of the Reincorporation, including the applicability and effect of U.S. federal, state, local, foreign and other tax laws.

Securities Law Consequences

The shares of New Cipherloc Common Stock to be issued for shares of Company Common Stock in the Reincorporation are not being registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In that respect, the Company is relying on Rule 145(a)(2) under the Securities Act, which provides that a merger that has as its sole purpose a change in a corporation’s domicile does not involve the sale of securities for purposes of the Securities Act and on interpretations of Rule 145(a)(2) by the SEC to the effect that certain changes in the redomiciled corporation’s charter or bylaws in connection with the reincorporation that otherwise could be made only with the approval of shareholders does not render Rule 145(a)(2) inapplicable. After the Reincorporation, New Cipherloc will be a publicly held company, New Cipherloc Common Stock will continue to be listed on the OTCQB under the symbol “CLOK” and New Cipherloc will file with the SEC and provide to its stockholders the same type of information that the Company has previously filed and provided. Shareholders, whose shares of Company Common Stock are freely tradable before the Reincorporation, will continue to have freely tradable shares of New Cipherloc Common Stock. Shareholders holding restricted shares of Company Common Stock will have shares of New Cipherloc Common Stock that are subject to the same restrictions on transfer as those to which their present shares of Company Common Stock are subject. In summary, New Cipherloc and its shareholders will be in the same respective positions under the federal securities laws after the Reincorporation as the Company and its shareholders prior to the Reincorporation.

Dissenters’ Right of Appraisal

Under Subchapter H, Chapter 10 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (§§10.351 through 10.368), a copy of which is included as APPENDIX G to this proxy statement (the “Dissenters’ Rights Statutes”), shareholders have dissenters’ and appraisal rights in connection with the approval of the Reincorporation. There are strict procedures for exercising these rights that if not met could result in the loss of these rights. Persons having beneficial interests in the Company’s common stock held of record in the name of another person, such as a broker or bank, must act promptly to cause the record holder to take the actions required under Texas law to exercise your dissenter’s rights. In order to dissent, you must carefully follow the requirements of the Dissenters’ Rights Statutes, including giving the required written notice of objection prior to the Annual Meeting.

To be eligible to exercise your right to dissent to the Reincorporation:

? you must, prior to the Annual Meeting, provide the Company with a written notice of objection to the Reincorporation that states that you will exercise your right to dissent if the Reincorporation is completed and that provides an address to which the Company may send a notice of effectiveness if the Reincorporation is completed;

? you must vote your shares of Company stock against the Reincorporation;

? you must, not later than the 20th day after the Company sends you notice that the Reincorporation was completed, provide the Company with a written demand for payment that states the number of shares of Company stock you own, your estimate of the fair value of such stock and an address to which a notice relating to the dissent and appraisal procedures may be sent; and

? you must, not later than the 20th day after the date on which you make written demand for payment, submit to the Company your certificates representing Company stock to which the demand relates for purposes of making a notation on the certificates that a demand for the payment of the fair value of your certificates representing Company stock has been made.

If you intend to exercise dissenters’ rights, you should read the Dissenters’ Rights Statutes carefully and consult with your own legal counsel. You should also remember that if you return a signed proxy card but fail to provide instructions as to how your shares of Company stock are to be voted, you will be considered to have voted in favor of the Reincorporation and you will not be able to assert dissenters’ rights. Also, if you exercise dissenters’ rights, you may have taxable income that is different from the taxable income of other shareholders, so you should consult with your own tax advisor if you intend to dissent. See “Federal Income Tax Consequences to the Reincorporation.” If the Reincorporation is approved by the shareholders of the Company, holders of Company common stock who make a written objection to the Reincorporation prior to the Annual Meeting, vote against the approval of the Reincorporation, properly make a written demand for payment following notice of the Reincorporation and timely surrender their Company stock certificates will be entitled to receive the fair value of their shares determined through an appraisal in cash under the Dissenters’ Rights Statutes.

Effect of Not Obtaining the Required Vote for Approval

If the Reincorporation Proposal fails to obtain the requisite vote for approval, the Reincorporation will not be consummated, and the Company will continue to be incorporated in the State of Texas.

Interests of Officers and Directors in this Proposal

Our officers and directors do not have any substantial interest, direct or indirect, in in this proposal.

Required Vote of Shareholders

The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock is required to approve this proposal.

Board Recommendation

The board of directors unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” Proposal 4.

PROPOSAL 5

REVERSE STOCK SPLIT PROPOSAL

Our management team has been studying the potential benefits of effecting a reverse stock split (a “Reverse Stock Split”) of our common stock for the purpose of uplisting to the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) in the future. Based on the Company’s stage of development, certain developments in its industry, the Company’s observations regarding the market for its peers whose securities are traded on Nasdaq, and discussions with U.S.-based investment banks and other advisors, the Company believes that there may be potential benefits of a reverse stock split and a future uplisting of our common stock from the OTCQB tier of the OTC Markets to Nasdaq, including:

? a larger pool of available capital;

? a greater average daily trading volume;

? a greater number of U.S. retail and institutional investors; and

? a potential increase in market valuation.

The Company must satisfy a variety of requirements to be accepted for listing on Nasdaq, including the requirement that the listed securities maintain a minimum per-share trading price for a specific period of time. The Company is contemplating the possibility of proceeding to complete the Reverse Stock Split in order to satisfy this requirement. This is not the only listing standard that the Company must meet, however, and the Company does not currently meet certain of the other Nasdaq listing standards. The Reverse Stock Split is merely a step toward an uplisting on Nasdaq.

Our Board has unanimously adopted a resolution authorizing, approving, declaring advisable and recommending to our stockholders for their approval an amendment to our proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation, that will be in effect upon the Reincorporation of our Company to the State of Delaware, to effect a reverse split of the outstanding shares of common stock in a ratio of one share-for-2 shares up to a ratio of one share-for-20 shares (the “Reverse Split Amendment”), which ratio will be selected by the Board following stockholder approval but in any event no later than one year after the Annual Meeting. The Reverse Stock Split Amendment will become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and set forth in a public announcement. The form of Reverse Split Amendment is attached to this proxy statement as Appendix A.

If the Board determines to implement the Reverse Split Amendment, we will communicate to the public, prior to the effective time of the Reverse Split Amendment, additional details regarding the Reverse Split Amendment (including the final reverse split ratio, as determined by the Board). The Board reserves the right to elect not to proceed with the Reverse Split Amendment if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Reverse Split Amendment is no longer in the best interests of our company or our stockholders.

In determining which reverse split amendment to implement, if any, following receipt of stockholder approval of the Reverse Stock Proposal, the Board may consider, among other things, various factors, such as:

? the historical trading price and trading volume of our common stock;
? the then-prevailing trading price and trading volume of our common stock and the expected impact of the Reverse Split on the trading market for our common stock in the short- and long-term;
? threshold prices of brokerage houses or institutional investors that could impact their ability to invest or recommend investments in our common stock;
? minimum listing requirements of Nasdaq;
? which reverse split amendment would result in the least administrative cost to us; and
? prevailing general market and economic conditions.

-40-


The failure of stockholders to approve the Reverse Stock Proposal could prevent us from meeting the Nasdaq $4.00 minimum bid price requirement (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”), among other things, unless the market price of our common stock increases above the Minimum Bid Price Requirement without a reverse split. If we are unable to uplist our common stock to Nasdaq, interest in our common stock may decline and certain institutions may not have the ability to trade in our common stock, all of which could have a material adverse effect on the liquidity or trading volume of our common stock. If our common stock becomes significantly less liquid due to our inability to qualify for listing on Nasdaq, our stockholders may not have the ability to liquidate their investments in our common stock as and when desired and we believe our access to capital would become significantly diminished as a result.

Reasons for the Reverse Split

To uplist to Nasdaq in the future

We believe that a reverse stock split could increase the market price of our common stock sufficient to satisfy the Minimum Bid Price Requirement in the near term, though we cannot provide any assurance that a reverse stock split will have that effect or that a reverse stock split would increase the market price sufficiently for a prolonged period of time. The Board has weighed the potential harm to our company and its stockholders resulting from an inability to uplist to Nasdaq against the potential harm to our company and its stockholders from another significant reverse stock split, including the risks described below under “Certain Risks Associated with a Reverse Split.” We believe we will continue to need to raise capital to fund our operations until the businesses we are engaged in become cash flow positive or profitable (of which there is no assurance). If we are unable to Nasdaq, our access to capital may become further limited and we may not have sufficient capital to enable our operating subsidiaries to continue their operations or become cash flow positive or profitable. Therefore, the Board has concluded that the potential harm to our company and its stockholders resulting from a possible uplisting to Nasdaq outweighs the potential harm to our company and its stockholders from another significant reverse stock split. The Minimum Bid Price Requirement is not the only listing standard that the Company must meet, however, and the Company does not currently meet certain of the other Nasdaq listing standards. The Reverse Stock Split is merely the first step toward an uplisting on Nasdaq. There can be no assurance that the Company will meet the Nasdaq listing standards or that Nasdaq would approve the Company’s listing application.

To potentially improve the liquidity of our common stock.

A reverse split could allow a broader range of institutions to invest in our common stock (namely, funds that are prohibited from buying stocks whose price is below a certain threshold), potentially increasing trading volume and liquidity of our common stock and potentially decreasing the volatility of our common stock if institutions become long-term holders of our common stock. A reverse split could help increase analyst and broker interest in our common stock as their policies can discourage them from following or recommending companies with low stock prices.

Because of the trading volatility often associated with low-priced stocks, many brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers. Some of those policies and practices may make the processing of trades in low-priced stocks economically unattractive to brokers. Additionally, because brokers’ commissions on low-priced stocks generally represent a higher percentage of the stock price than commissions on higher-priced stocks, a low average price per share of common stock can result in individual stockholders paying transaction costs representing a higher percentage of their total share value than would be the case if the share price were higher.

Certain Risks Associated with a Reverse Stock Split

There can be no assurance that the Reverse Stock Split will increase the market price of the common stock and have the desired effect of achieving compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. The Board believes that a Reverse Stock Split has the potential to increase the market price of our common stock so that we may be able to satisfy the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. However, the long- and near-term effect of the Reverse Stock Split upon the market price of the common stock cannot be predicted with any certainty.

-41-


As of the Record Date, the closing price of our common stock was $0.18. Historically, however, the closing price of our common stock during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, has traded as low as $0.11 per share to a high of $1.10 per share. As a result, we cannot be assured of compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement in the future. There can be no assurance that a reverse stock split will increase the market price of our common stock so that we may be able to maintain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.

Further, following any reverse stock split, we will continue to require significant proceeds from sales of our debt or equity securities to fund our operations for the near future, which will cause further dilution to stockholders. The issuance of a substantial number of shares of common stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for common stock in the future could cause downward pressure on the price of our common stock and there is no assurance that the market price for our common stock will remain at a level sufficient to satisfy the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.

Even if a reverse stock split enables us to gain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, we may be unable to meet the other criteria of listing on Nasdaq. Further, the Reverse Stock Split may not result in a per share price that would attract brokers and investors who do not trade in lower priced stocks.

A reverse stock split would affect all of our common stockholders uniformly and would not affect any stockholder’s percentage ownership interests or proportionate voting power. The other principal effects of the Reverse Stock Split will be that:

? the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock will be reduced proportionately based on the final reverse split ratio, as determined by the Board; and

? the number of shares of our authorized common stock that are unissued and not reserved for future issuance will increase.

Although the number of outstanding shares of common stock would decrease following the Reverse Split Amendment, the Board does not intend for a reverse stock split to be the first step in a “going private transaction” within the meaning of Rule 13e-3 of the Exchange Act.

The following table reflects the number of shares of common stock that would be outstanding as a result of the effectiveness of the Reverse Split Amendment and the approximate percentage reduction in the number of outstanding shares based on 82,927,311 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of July 15, 2021, the Record Date. As of the Record Date, we had 598,072,689 shares of common stock available for issuance. The following table also shows the shares that would be available for issuance at various ratios that the Board of Directors may consider if the Reverse Split Amendment is effected. The Shares of Common Stock Available for Issuance After the Reverse Split assumes the proposal with respect to the reincorporation included in this proxy is approved. If approved, this proposal would set the authorized common shares to 681,000,000.

Effect of Reverse Split and Potential Anti-Takeover Effect

Management does not anticipate that our financial condition, the percentage ownership of common stock by management, the number of our stockholders, or any aspect of our business will materially change as a result of the Reverse Split Amendment. Because the Reverse Split Amendment will apply to all issued and outstanding shares of common stock and outstanding rights to purchase common stock or to convert other securities into common stock, the proposed Reverse Split Amendment will not alter the relative rights and preferences of existing stockholders. However, the number of shares of common stock outstanding will be decreased, while the number of authorized but unissued shares will be increased.

Management does not currently plan to use the increase in our authorized but unissued shares that will result from the Reverse Split Amendment to make it more difficult or to discourage a future merger, tender offer or proxy contest or the removal of incumbent management. This Proposal is not the result of management’s knowledge of an effort to accumulate our securities or to obtain control of the Company by means of a merger, tender offer, solicitation or otherwise.

Summarized in the following paragraphs are provisions included in our proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, and our bylaws that may have the effect of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control or an unsolicited acquisition proposal that a stockholder might consider favorable, including a proposal that might result in the payment of a premium over the market price for the shares held by our stockholders.

Effects of authorized but unissued common stock and blank check preferred stock. One of the effects of the existence of authorized but unissued common stock and undesignated preferred stock may be to enable our Board to make more difficult or to discourage an attempt to obtain control of our company by means of a merger, tender offer, proxy contest or otherwise, and thereby to protect the continuity of management. If the Board were to determine that a takeover proposal was not in our best interest, such shares could be issued by the Board without stockholder approval in one or more transactions that might prevent or render more difficult or costly the completion of the takeover transaction by diluting the voting or other rights of the proposed acquirer or insurgent stockholder group, by putting a substantial voting block in institutional or other hands that might undertake to support the position of the incumbent board of directors, by effecting an acquisition that might complicate or preclude the takeover, or otherwise.

In addition, our proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, grants our Board broad power to establish the rights and preferences of authorized and unissued shares of additional series of preferred stock. The creation and issuance of one or more additional series of preferred stock could decrease the amount of earnings and assets available for distribution to holders of shares of common stock. The issuance also may adversely affect the rights and powers, including voting rights, of those holders and may have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change in control of our company.

Cumulative Voting. Our proposed Delaware Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, does not provide for cumulative voting in the election of directors which would allow holders of less than a majority of the voting stock to elect some directors.

Vacancies. Section 223 of the Delaware General Corporation Law and our bylaws provide that all vacancies, including newly created directorships, may be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of directors then in office, even if less than a quorum.

Special Meeting of Stockholders. A special meeting of stockholders may be called by our Board or the Chairman of our Board and must be called by our Secretary at the request in writing of holders of record of twenty five percent (25%) of our outstanding capital stock entitled to vote. The requirement that 25% of our outstanding capital stock is required to call a special meeting means that small stockholders will not have the power to call a special meeting to, for example, elect new directors.

-43-


Fractional Shares

If the reverse stock split ratio determined to be implemented by the Board, if any, will result in fractional shares, we will not issue fractional shares. Instead, stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares because they hold a number of shares not evenly divisible by the reverse stock split ratio will automatically be entitled to receive an additional fraction of a share of our common stock to round up to the next whole share.

Procedure for Effecting Reverse Stock Split

If the Board decides to implement a reverse split, the reverse split will become effective on the date the Reverse Split Amendment is filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The time of such filing, if any, will be determined by the Board in its sole discretion. Beginning on the effective time of the Reverse Split Amendment, each certificate representing pre-reverse split shares of common stock will be deemed for all corporate purposes to evidence ownership of post-reverse split shares of common stock.

Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Reverse Stock Split

The following discussion is a general summary of certain U.S. federal income tax consequences of the reverse split that may be relevant to U.S. Holders (as defined below) of our common stock but does not purport to be a complete analysis of all potential tax effects. The effects of other U.S. federal tax laws, such as estate and gift tax laws, and any applicable state, local or non-U.S. tax laws are not discussed. This discussion is based on the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Treasury Regulations”), judicial decisions, and published rulings and administrative pronouncements of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), in each case in effect as of the date hereof. These authorities may change or be subject to differing interpretations. Any such change or differing interpretation may be applied retroactively in a manner that could adversely affect a holder of our common stock. We have not sought and will not seek an opinion of counsel or any rulings from the IRS regarding the matters discussed below. There can be no assurance the IRS or a court will not take a contrary position to that discussed below regarding the tax consequences of the reverse split.

This discussion is limited to holders that hold our common stock as “capital assets” within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Code (generally, property held for investment). This discussion does not address all aspects of U.S. federal income tax consequences relevant to such holders’ particular circumstances, including the impact of the tax on net investment income imposed by Section 1411 of the Code. In addition, it does not address consequences relevant to holders subject to particular rules, including, without limitation:

? persons that are not U.S. Holders (as defined below);
? persons subject to the alternative minimum tax;
? U.S. Holders (as defined below) whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar;
? persons holding our common stock as part of a hedge, straddle or other risk reduction strategy or as part of a conversion transaction or other integrated investment;
? banks, insurance companies or other financial institutions;
? real estate investment trusts or regulated investment companies;
? brokers, dealers or traders in securities;
? S corporations, partnerships or other entities or arrangements treated as partnerships for U.S. federal income tax purposes (and investors therein);
? tax-exempt organizations or governmental organizations;
? persons deemed to sell our common stock under the constructive sale provisions of the Code;
? persons who hold or receive our common stock pursuant to the exercise of any employee stock option or otherwise as compensation; and
? tax-qualified retirement plans.

If an entity treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes holds our common stock, the tax treatment of a partner in the partnership will depend on the status of the partner, the activities of the partnership and certain determinations made at the partner level. Accordingly, partnerships holding our common stock and the partners in such partnerships should consult their own tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences to them.

-44-


THIS DISCUSSION IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED AS TAX ADVICE. HOLDERS OF OUR COMMON STOCK SHOULD CONSULT THEIR OWN TAX ADVISORS WITH RESPECT TO THE APPLICATION OF THE U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX LAWS TO THEIR PARTICULAR SITUATIONS AS WELL AS ANY TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT ARISING UNDER OTHER U.S. FEDERAL TAX LAWS (INCLUDING ESTATE AND GIFT TAX LAWS), UNDER THE LAWS OF ANY STATE, LOCAL OR NON-U.S. TAXING JURISDICTION OR UNDER ANY APPLICABLE TAX TREATY.

For purposes of the discussion below, a “U.S. Holder” is a beneficial owner of shares of our common stock that for U.S. federal income tax purposes is or is treated as: (1) an individual who is a citizen or resident of the United States; (2) a corporation created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof, or the District of Columbia; (3) an estate the income of which is subject to U.S. federal income tax regardless of its source; or (4) a trust that (a) is subject to the primary supervision of a U.S. court and the control of one of more “United States persons” (within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code), or (b) has a valid election in effect to be treated as a United States person for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

A reverse split should constitute a “recapitalization” for U.S. federal income tax purposes. As a result, a U.S. Holder generally should not recognize gain or loss upon the reverse split, except with respect to cash received in lieu of a fractional share of our common stock. A U.S. Holder’s aggregate tax basis in the shares of our common stock received pursuant to the reverse split should equal the aggregate tax basis of the shares of our common stock surrendered (excluding any portion of such basis that is allocated to any fractional share of our common stock), and such U.S. Holder’s holding period in the shares of our common stock received should include the holding period in the shares of our common stock surrendered. Treasury Regulations provide detailed rules for allocating the tax basis and holding period of the shares of our common stock surrendered to the shares of our common stock received pursuant to the reverse split. Holders of shares of our common stock acquired on different dates and at different prices should consult their tax advisors regarding the allocation of the tax basis and holding period of such shares.

Information Reporting and Backup Withholding. A U.S. Holder (other than corporations and certain other exempt recipients) may be subject to information reporting and backup withholding when such holder receives cash in lieu of a fractional share of our common stock pursuant to the reverse split. A U.S. Holder will be subject to backup withholding if such holder is not otherwise exempt and such holder does not provide its taxpayer identification number in the manner required or otherwise fails to comply with applicable backup withholding tax rules. Backup withholding is not an additional tax. Any amounts withheld under the backup withholding rules may be refunded or allowed as a credit against the U.S. Holder’s federal income tax liability, if any, provided the required information is timely furnished to the IRS. U.S. Holders should consult their tax advisors regarding their qualification for an exemption from backup withholding and the procedures for obtaining such an exemption.

Appraisal Rights

There are no rights of appraisal or similar rights of dissenters with respect to this proposal.

If the Proposal 4 (Reincorporation from Texas to Delaware) fails to obtain the requisite vote for approval, the Board will not effectuate the Reverse Stock Split, regardless of whether this Proposal 5 receives the required vote of shareholders.

Interests of Officers and Directors in this Proposal

Our officers and directors do not have any substantial interest, direct or indirect, in in this proposal.

Required Vote of Shareholders
The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock is required to approve this proposal.

Board Recommendation

The board of directors unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” Proposal 5.

PROPOSAL 6

AMENDMENT TO AMENDED AND RESTATED ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION

Subject to the approval of the shareholders, the Board has approved a proposal to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the “Restated Certificate”) to eliminate the shareholders’ statutory preemptive rights pursuant to Section 21.208 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (the “Amendment”). The proposed form of Amendment is attached as Appendix F to this proxy statement (subject to any changes required by applicable law). If adopted by the shareholders, in the event Proposal 4 is not approved by the shareholders or the Reincorporation does not otherwise occur, the Amendment would become effective upon filing of an appropriate certificate of amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Texas. The proposed Amendment would add a new Article 9 to the Restated Certificate, which shall read in its entirety as follows

“No holder of shares of stock of any class shall have any preemptive right to subscribe for or purchase any additional shares of any class, or any bonds or convertible securities of any nature, provided however that the board of directors may, in authorizing the issuance of shares of stock of any class, confer a preemptive right that the board of directors may deem advisable in connection with such issuance.”

Section 21.208 of the Texas Business Organizations Code provides as follows:

“Subject to the certificate of formation, a shareholder of a corporation incorporated before September 1, 2003, has a preemptive right to acquire unissued or treasury shares of the corporation to the extent provided by Sections 21.204 (Statutory Preemptive Rights), 21.206 (Limitation on Action to Enforce Preemptive Right), and 21.207 (Disposition of Shares Having Preemptive Rights). After September 1, 2003, a corporation may limit or deny the preemptive right of the shareholders of the corporation by amending the corporation’s certificate of formation.”

Because the Company was formed prior to September 1, 2003, and the Restated Certificate does not currently limit or deny the preemptive right of the shareholders of the Company, the shareholders are currently entitled to statutory preemptive rights.

We believe that adopting an amendment to the Restated Certificate to eliminate the statutory preemptive rights of our shareholders is in the best interest of the Company and critical to sustaining our operations and achieving long-term success. As a public company, such preemptive rights can severely limit our access to capital and the types of fundraising methods available to us. If the Company does not effectuate its reincorporation to the State of Delaware, by adopting the proposed Amendment in accordance with Section 21.208 of the Texas Business Organizations Code, the Company’s ability to raise additional capital through different means and from different sources would be enhanced in the event the Company remains a Texas corporation. Accordingly, we believe that this Amendment could aid in our capital raising efforts and long-term growth.

Effect of Not Obtaining the Required Vote for Approval

If Proposal 4 (Reincorporation from Texas to Delaware) obtains the requisite vote for approval and the Reincorporation is consummated, the Board will not adopt the Amendment, regardless of whether this Proposal 6 receives the required vote of shareholders, as such action would no longer be necessary.

Interests of Officers and Directors in this Proposal

Our officers and directors do not have any substantial interest, direct or indirect, in in this proposal.

Required Vote of Shareholders

The affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our common stock is required to approve this proposal.

Board Recommendation

The board of directors unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” Proposal 6.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS
AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

Principal Beneficial Owners and Management

The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of June 30, 2021 (the “Date of Determination”) by (i) each Named Executive Officer, as such term is defined in “Executive and Director Compensation”, (ii) each member of our Board, (iii) each person deemed to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent (5%) of our common stock or preferred stock, and (iv) all of our executive officers and directors as a group. Unless otherwise indicated, each person named in the following table is assumed to have sole voting power and investment power with respect to all shares of our stock listed as owned by such person. The address of each person is deemed to be the address of the Company unless otherwise noted.

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting and/or investing power with respect to securities. These rules generally provide that shares of common stock subject to options, warrants or other convertible securities that are currently exercisable or convertible, or exercisable or convertible within 60 days of the Date of Determination, are deemed to be outstanding and to be beneficially owned by the person or group holding such options, warrants or other convertible securities for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of such person or group, but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person or group. The percentages are based upon 82,927,311 shares of our common stock outstanding as of the Date of Determination.

To our knowledge, except as indicated in the footnotes to this table and pursuant to applicable community property laws, as of the Date of Determination, (a) the persons named in the table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by them, subject to applicable community property laws; and (b) no person owns more than 5% of our common or preferred stock. Unless otherwise indicated, the address for each director and executive officer listed is: c/o Cipherloc Corporation, 6836 Bee Cave Road, Bldg. 1, S#279, Austin, Texas 78746.

DELINQUENT SECTION 16(A) REPORTS

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our directors, executive officers and holders of more than 10% of our common stock to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in the ownership of our common stock and other equity securities. Such persons are required to furnish us copies of all Section 16(a) filings. Based solely upon a review of the copies of the forms furnished to us, we believe that our officers, directors and holders of more than 10% of our common stock complied with all applicable filing requirements.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Except as discussed below or otherwise disclosed above under “Executive and Director Compensation”, which information is incorporated by reference where applicable in this “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions” section, the following sets forth a summary of all transactions since January 1, 2019, or any currently proposed transaction, in which the Company was to be a participant and the amount involved exceeded or exceeds the lesser of $120,000 or one percent of the average of the Company’s total assets at the fiscal year-end for September 30, 2020 and 2019, and in which any officer, director, or any shareholder owning greater than five percent (5%) of our outstanding voting shares, nor any member of the above referenced individual’s immediate family, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest (other than compensation described above under “Executive Compensation” and/or “Director Compensation”). We believe the terms obtained or consideration that we paid or received, as applicable, in connection with the transactions described below were comparable to terms available or the amounts that would be paid or received, as applicable, in arm’s-length transactions.

Pursuant to the Settlement, Mr. De La Garza, agreed to, among other things, (i) resign as a director of the Company and confirmed that he had no disagreements with the Board, and (ii) return 13,137,757 shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Forfeited Stock”), held by him to the Company’s treasury. We agreed to pay Mr. De La Garza an aggregate sum of $400,000 (the “Settlement Amount”), payable as follows: (A) $300,000 on or before ten (10) business days after the last to occur (the “Settlement Date”) of (i) the execution of the Settlement by Mr. De La Garza, (ii) actual receipt by the Company of the Forfeited Stock and consummation of the deliveries contemplated by the Settlement, and (iii) the receipt by the Company of a completed Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 from Mr. De La Garza; and (B) $25,000 on each of the four (4) succeeding quarterly anniversaries of the Settlement Date.

OTHER MATTERS

The Board knows of no other business, which will be presented to the Annual Meeting. If any other business is properly brought before the Annual Meeting, proxies will be voted in accordance with the judgment of the persons voting the proxies. The proxy also has discretionary authority to vote to adjourn the Annual Meeting, including for the purpose of soliciting votes in accordance with our board of director’s recommendations.

We will bear the cost of soliciting proxies in the accompanying form. In addition to the use of the mails, proxies may also be solicited by our directors, officers or other employees, personally or by telephone, facsimile or email, none of whom will be compensated separately for these solicitation activities.

If you do not plan to attend the Annual Meeting, in order that your shares may be represented and in order to assure the required quorum, please sign, date and return your proxy promptly. In the event you are able to attend the Annual Meeting, at your request, we will cancel your previously submitted proxy.

STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS AND NOMINATIONS FOR DIRECTOR

For business (including, but not limited to, director nominations) to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a shareholder, the shareholder or shareholders of record intending to propose the business (the "Proposing Shareholder") must have given written notice of the Proposing Shareholder's nomination or proposal, either by personal delivery or by United States mail to the Secretary of the Company not later than sixty (60) calendar days prior to the date such annual meeting is to be held. If the current year's meeting is called for a date that is not within thirty (30) days of the anniversary of the previous year's annual meeting, notice must be received not later than ten (10) calendar days following the day on which public announcement of the date of the annual meeting is first made. In no event will an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting of shareholders begin a new time period for giving a Proposing Shareholder's notice as provided above.

For business to be properly brought before a special meeting of shareholders, the notice of the meeting sent by or at the direction of the person calling the meeting must set forth the nature of the business to be considered. A person or persons who have made a written request for a special meeting pursuant to Section 2.2 of our Bylaws may provide the information required for notice of a shareholder proposal under this section simultaneously with the written request for the meeting submitted to the Secretary or within ten (10) calendar days after delivery of the written request for the meeting to the Secretary.

A proposing shareholder's notice shall include as to each matter the proposing shareholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting;

(a) The name and address of the proposing shareholder, and the classes and number of shares of the corporation held by the proposing shareholder.

(b) If the notice is in regard to a nomination of a candidate for election as director: (a) the name, age, and business and residence address of the candidate; (b) the principal occupation or employment of the candidate; and (c) the class and number of shares of the corporation beneficially owned by the candidate.

(c) If the notice is about a proposal other than a nomination of a candidate for election as director, a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting and the material interest of the proposing shareholder in such proposal.

Accordingly, stockholders who intend to have a proposal considered at our 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders must submit the proposal to us at our corporate headquarters no later than July 30, 2021, which proposal must be made in accordance with the provisions outlined above.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Householding

The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for Proxy Availability Notice or other Annual Meeting materials with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single Notice or other Annual Meeting materials addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as householding, potentially provides extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies. Stockholders who participate in householding will continue to be able to access and receive separate proxy cards.

Brokers with account holders who are our stockholders may be “householding” our proxy materials. A Notice or proxy materials will be delivered in one single envelope to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from one or more of the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that they will be householding communications to your address, householding will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in householding and would prefer to receive a separate Notice or proxy materials, please notify your broker or submit a request in writing to our Secretary, c/o Cipherloc Corporation, 6836 Bee Cave Rd, Bldg. 1, S#279, Austin, TX 78746. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the Notice or proxy materials at their address and would like to request householding of their communications should contact their broker. In addition, we will promptly deliver, upon written or oral request to the address or telephone number above, a separate copy of the Notice or proxy materials to a stockholder at a shared address to which a single copy of the documents was delivered.

Annual Reports and Form 10-K

Copies of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, may be obtained without charge by writing to the Company’s Secretary, Cipherloc Corporation, 6836 Bee Cave Rd, Bldg. 1, S#279, Austin, TX 78746. The Notice, our Annual Report on Form 10-K and this proxy statement are also available online at .

Section 5. Equitable Adjustments.

In the event of any Change in Capitalization, an equitable substitution or proportionate adjustment shall be made in (i) the aggregate number and kind of securities reserved for issuance under the Plan pursuant to Section 4, (ii) the kind, number of securities subject to, and the Exercise Price subject to outstanding Options and Stock Appreciation Rights granted under the Plan, (iii) the kind, number and purchase price of Shares or other securities or the amount of cash or amount or type of other property subject to outstanding Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units or Other Stock-Based Awards granted under the Plan; and/or (iv) the terms and conditions of any outstanding Awards (including, without limitation, any applicable performance targets or criteria with respect thereto); provided, however, that any fractional shares resulting from the adjustment shall be eliminated. Such other equitable substitutions or adjustments shall be made as may be determined by the Administrator, in its sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in connection with a Change in Capitalization, the Administrator may provide, in its sole discretion, but subject in all events to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, for the cancellation of any outstanding Award granted hereunder in exchange for payment in cash or other property having an aggregate Fair Market Value equal to the Fair Market Value of the Shares, cash or other property covered by such Award, reduced by the aggregate Exercise Price or purchase price thereof, if any; provided, however, that if the Exercise Price or purchase price of any outstanding Award is equal to or greater than the Fair Market Value of the shares of Common Stock, cash or other property covered by such Award, the Administrator may cancel such Award without the payment of any consideration to the Participant. Further, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, with respect to Awards subject to foreign laws, adjustments made hereunder shall be made in compliance with applicable requirements. Except to the extent determined by the Administrator, any adjustments to ISOs under this Section 5 shall be made only to the extent not constituting a “modification” within the meaning of Section 424(h)(3) of the Code. The Administrator’s determinations pursuant to this Section 5 shall be final, binding and conclusive.

Section 6. Eligibility and Award Limits.

The Participants in the Plan shall be selected from time to time by the Administrator, in its sole discretion, from those individuals that qualify as Eligible Recipients.

Section 7. Options.

(a) General. Options granted under the Plan shall be designated as Nonqualified Stock Options or ISOs. Each Participant who is granted an Option shall enter into an Award Agreement with the Company, containing such terms and conditions as the Administrator shall determine, in its sole discretion, including, among other things, the Exercise Price of the Option, the term of the Option and provisions regarding exercisability of the Option, and whether the Option is intended to be an ISO or a Nonqualified Stock Option (and in the event the Award Agreement has no such designation, the Option shall be a Nonqualified Stock Option). The provisions of each Option need not be the same with respect to each Participant. More than one Option may be granted to the same Participant and be outstanding concurrently hereunder. Options granted under the Plan shall be subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 7 and shall contain such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the terms of the Plan, as the Administrator shall deem desirable and set forth in the applicable Award Agreement.

(b) Exercise Price. The Exercise Price of Shares purchasable under an Option shall be determined by the Administrator in its sole discretion at the time of grant, but in no event shall the exercise price of an Option be less than one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of grant.

(c) Option Term. The maximum term of each Option shall be fixed by the Administrator, but no Option shall be exercisable more than ten (10) years after the date such Option is granted. Each Option’s term is subject to earlier expiration pursuant to the applicable provisions in the Plan and the Award Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, subject to Section 4(d) of the Plan, the Administrator shall have the authority to accelerate the exercisability of any outstanding Option at such time and under such circumstances as the Administrator, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.

-8-


(d) Exercisability. Each Option shall be exercisable at such time or times and subject to such terms and conditions, including the attainment of performance goals, as shall be determined by the Administrator in the applicable Award Agreement. The Administrator may also provide that any Option shall be exercisable only in installments, and the Administrator may waive such installment exercise provisions at any time, in whole or in part, based on such factors as the Administrator may determine in its sole discretion.

(e) Method of Exercise. Options may be exercised in whole or in part by giving written notice of exercise to the Company specifying the number of whole Shares to be purchased, accompanied by payment in full of the aggregate Exercise Price of the Shares so purchased in cash or its equivalent, as determined by the Administrator. As determined by the Administrator, in its sole discretion, with respect to any Option or category of Options, payment in whole or in part may also be made (i) by means of consideration received under any cashless exercise procedure approved by the Administrator (including the withholding of Shares otherwise issuable upon exercise), (ii) in the form of unrestricted Shares already owned by the Participant which have a Fair Market Value on the date of surrender equal to the aggregate exercise price of the Shares as to which such Option shall be exercised, (iii) any other form of consideration approved by the Administrator and permitted by Applicable Laws or (iv) any combination of the foregoing.

(f) ISOs. The terms and conditions of ISOs granted hereunder shall be subject to the provisions of Section 422 of the Code and the terms, conditions, limitations and administrative procedures established by the Administrator from time to time in accordance with the Plan. At the discretion of the Administrator, ISOs may be granted only to an employee of the Company, its “parent corporation” (as such term is defined in Section 424(e) of the Code) or a Subsidiary of the Company.

(1) ISO Grants to 10% Stockholders. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Plan, if an ISO is granted to a Participant who owns shares representing more than ten percent (10%) of the voting power of all classes of shares of the Company at the time of grant, its “parent corporation” (as such term is defined in Section 424(e) of the Code) or a Subsidiary of the Company, the term of the ISO shall not exceed five (5) years from the time of grant of such ISO and the Exercise Price shall be at least one hundred and ten percent (110%) of the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date of grant.

(2) $100,000 Per Year Limitation For ISOs. To the extent the aggregate Fair Market Value (determined on the date of grant) of the Shares for which ISOs are exercisable for the first time by any Participant during any calendar year (under all plans of the Company) exceeds $100,000, such excess ISOs shall be treated as Nonqualified Stock Options.

(3) Disqualifying Dispositions. Each Participant awarded an ISO under the Plan shall notify the Company in writing immediately after the date the Participant makes a “disqualifying disposition” of any Share acquired pursuant to the exercise of such ISO. A “disqualifying disposition” is any disposition (including any sale) of such Shares before the later of (i) two years after the date of grant of the ISO and (ii) one year after the date the Participant acquired the Shares by exercising the ISO. The Company may, if determined by the Administrator and in accordance with procedures established by it, retain possession of any Shares acquired pursuant to the exercise of an ISO as agent for the applicable Participant until the end of the period described in the preceding sentence, subject to complying with any instructions from such Participant as to the sale of such Shares.

(g) Rights as Stockholder. A Participant shall have no rights to dividends, dividend equivalents or distributions or any other rights of a stockholder with respect to the Shares subject to an Option until the Participant has given written notice of the exercise thereof, and has paid in full for such Shares and has satisfied the requirements of Section 15 hereof.

-9-


(h) Termination of Employment or Service. Treatment of an Option upon termination of employment of a Participant shall be provided for by the Administrator in the Award Agreement.

(i) Other Change in Employment or Service Status. An Option shall be affected, both with regard to vesting schedule and termination, by leaves of absence, including unpaid and un-protected leaves of absence, changes from full-time to part-time employment, partial Disability or other changes in the employment status or service status of a Participant, in the discretion of the Administrator.

Section 8. Stock Appreciation Rights.

(a) General. Stock Appreciation Rights may be granted either alone (“Free Standing Rights”) or in conjunction with all or part of any Option granted under the Plan (“Related Rights”). Related Rights may be granted either at or after the time of the grant of such Option. The Administrator shall determine the Eligible Recipients to whom, and the time or times at which, grants of Stock Appreciation Rights shall be made. Each Participant who is granted a Stock Appreciation Right shall enter into an Award Agreement with the Company, containing such terms and conditions as the Administrator shall determine, in its sole discretion, including, among other things, the number of Shares to be awarded, the Exercise Price per Share, and all other conditions of Stock Appreciation Rights. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Related Right may be granted for more Shares than are subject to the Option to which it relates. The provisions of Stock Appreciation Rights need not be the same with respect to each Participant. Stock Appreciation Rights granted under the Plan shall be subject to the following terms and conditions set forth in this Section 8 and shall contain such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the terms of the Plan, as the Administrator shall deem desirable, as set forth in the applicable Award Agreement.

(b) Awards; Rights as Stockholder. A Participant shall have no rights to dividends or any other rights of a stockholder with respect to the shares of Common Stock, if any, subject to a Stock Appreciation Right until the Participant has given written notice of the exercise thereof and has satisfied the requirements of Section 15 hereof.

(c) Exercise Price. The Exercise Price of Shares purchasable under a Stock Appreciation Right shall be determined by the Administrator in its sole discretion at the time of grant, but in no event shall the exercise price of a Stock Appreciation Right be less than one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of grant.

(d) Exercisability.

(1) Stock Appreciation Rights that are Free Standing Rights shall be exercisable at such time or times and subject to such terms and conditions as shall be determined by the Administrator in the applicable Award Agreement.

(2) Stock Appreciation Rights that are Related Rights shall be exercisable only at such time or times and to the extent that the Options to which they relate shall be exercisable in accordance with the provisions of Section 7 hereof and this Section 8 of the Plan.

(e) Payment Upon Exercise.

(1) Upon the exercise of a Free Standing Right, the Participant shall be entitled to receive up to, but not more than, that number of Shares equal in value to the excess of the Fair Market Value as of the date of exercise over the Exercise Price per share specified in the Free Standing Right multiplied by the number of Shares in respect of which the Free Standing Right is being exercised.

(2) A Related Right may be exercised by a Participant by surrendering the applicable portion of the related Option. Upon such exercise and surrender, the Participant shall be entitled to receive up to, but not more than, that number of Shares equal in value to the excess of the Fair Market Value as of the date of exercise over the Exercise Price specified in the related Option multiplied by the number of Shares in respect of which the Related Right is being exercised. Options which have been so surrendered, in whole or in part, shall no longer be exercisable to the extent the Related Rights have been so exercised.

-10-


(3) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrator may determine to settle the exercise of a Stock Appreciation Right in cash (or in any combination of Shares and cash).

(f) Termination of Employment or Service. Treatment of a Stock Appreciation Right upon termination of employment of a Participant shall be provided for by the Administrator in the Award Agreement.

(g) Term.

(1) The term of each Free Standing Right shall be fixed by the Administrator, but no Free Standing Right shall be exercisable more than ten (10) years after the date such right is granted.

(2) The term of each Related Right shall be the term of the Option to which it relates, but no Related Right shall be exercisable more than ten (10) years after the date such right is granted.

(h) Other Change in Employment or Service Status. Stock Appreciation Rights shall be affected, both with regard to vesting schedule and termination, by leaves of absence, including unpaid and un-protected leaves of absence, changes from full-time to part-time employment, partial Disability or other changes in the employment or service status of a Participant, in the discretion of the Administrator.

Section 9. Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units.

(a) General. Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units may be issued under the Plan. The Administrator shall determine the Eligible Recipients to whom, and the time or times at which, Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units shall be made. Each Participant who is granted Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units shall enter into an Award Agreement with the Company, containing such terms and conditions as the Administrator shall determine, in its sole discretion, including, among other things, the number of Shares to be awarded; the price, if any, to be paid by the Participant for the acquisition of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units; the period of time restrictions, performance goals or other conditions that apply to Transferability, delivery or vesting of such Awards (the “Restricted Period”); and all other conditions applicable to the Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units. If the restrictions, performance goals or conditions established by the Administrator are not attained, a Participant shall forfeit his or her Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units, in accordance with the terms of the grant. The provisions of the Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units need not be the same with respect to each Participant.

(b) Awards and Certificates. Except as otherwise provided below in Section 9(c), (i) each Participant who is granted an Award of Restricted Stock may, in the Company’s sole discretion, be issued a share certificate in respect of such Restricted Stock; and (ii) any such certificate so issued shall be registered in the name of the Participant, and shall bear an appropriate legend referring to the terms, conditions, and restrictions appliable to any such Award. The Company may require that the share certificates, if any, evidencing Restricted Stock granted hereunder be held in the custody of the Company until the restrictions thereon shall have lapsed, and that, as a condition of any Award of Restricted Stock, the Participant shall have delivered a share transfer form, endorsed in blank, relating to the Shares covered by such Award. Certificates for shares of unrestricted Common Stock may, in the Company’s sole discretion, be delivered to the Participant only after the Restricted Period has expired without forfeiture in such Restricted Stock Award. With respect to Restricted Stock Units to be settled in Shares, at the expiration of the Restricted Period, share certificates in respect of the shares of Common Stock underlying such Restricted Stock Units may, in the Company’s sole discretion, be delivered to the Participant, or his or her legal representative, in a number equal to the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the Restricted Stock Units Award. Notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, any Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units to be settled in Shares (at the expiration of the Restricted Period, and whether before or after any vesting conditions have been satisfied) may, in the Company’s sole discretion, be issued in uncertificated form. Further, notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, with respect to Restricted Stock Units, at the expiration of the Restricted Period, Shares, or cash, as applicable, shall promptly be issued (either in certificated or uncertificated form) to the Participant, unless otherwise deferred in accordance with procedures established by the Company in accordance with Section 409A of the Code, and such issuance or payment shall in any event be made within such period as is required to avoid the imposition of a tax under Section 409A of the Code.

-11-


(c) Restrictions and Conditions. The Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units granted pursuant to this Section 9 shall be subject to the following restrictions and conditions and any additional restrictions or conditions as determined by the Administrator at the time of grant or, subject to Section 409A of the Code where applicable, thereafter:

(1) The Administrator may, in its sole discretion, provide for the lapse of restrictions in installments and may accelerate or waive such restrictions in whole or in part based on such factors and such circumstances as the Administrator may determine, in its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, the attainment of certain performance goals, the Participant’s termination of employment or service with the Company or any Affiliate thereof, or the Participant’s death or Disability. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon a Change in Control, the outstanding Awards shall be subject to Section 11 hereof.

(2) Except as provided in the applicable Award Agreement, the Participant shall generally have the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to Restricted Stock during the Restricted Period; provided, however, that dividends declared during the Restricted Period with respect to an Award, shall only become payable if (and to the extent) the underlying Restricted Stock vests. Except as provided in the applicable Award Agreement, the Participant shall generally not have the rights of a stockholder with respect to Shares subject to Restricted Stock Units during the Restricted Period; provided, however, that, subject to Section 409A of the Code, an amount equal to dividends declared during the Restricted Period with respect to the number of Shares covered by Restricted Stock Units shall, unless otherwise set forth in an Award Agreement, be paid to the Participant at the time (and to the extent) Shares in respect of the related Restricted Stock Units are delivered to the Participant. Certificates for Shares of unrestricted Common Stock may, in the Company’s sole discretion, be delivered to the Participant only after the Restricted Period has expired without forfeiture in respect of such Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units, except as the Administrator, in its sole discretion, shall otherwise determine.

(3) The rights of Participants granted Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units upon termination of employment or service as a director or independent contractor to the Company or to any Affiliate thereof terminates for any reason during the Restricted Period shall be set forth in the Award Agreement.

(d) Form of Settlement. The Administrator reserves the right in its sole discretion to provide (either at or after the grant thereof) that any Restricted Stock Unit represents the right to receive the amount of cash per unit that is determined by the Administrator in connection with the Award.

Section 10. Other Stock-Based Awards.

Other Stock-Based Awards may be issued under the Plan. Subject to the provisions of the Plan, the Administrator shall have sole and complete authority to determine the individuals to whom and the time or times at which such Other Stock-Based Awards shall be granted. Each Participant who is granted an Other Stock-Based Award shall enter into an Award Agreement with the Company, containing such terms and conditions as the Administrator shall determine, in its sole discretion, including, among other things, the number of shares of Common Stock to be granted pursuant to such Other Stock-Based Awards, or the manner in which such Other Stock-Based Awards shall be settled (e.g., in shares of Common Stock, cash or other property), or the conditions to the vesting and/or payment or settlement of such Other Stock-Based Awards (which may include, but not be limited to, achievement of performance criteria) and all other terms and conditions of such Other Stock-Based Awards. In the event that the Administrator grants a bonus in the form of Shares, the Shares constituting such bonus shall, as determined by the Administrator, be evidenced in uncertificated form or by a book entry record or a certificate issued in the name of the Participant to whom such grant was made and delivered to such Participant as soon as practicable after the date on which such bonus is payable. Notwithstanding anything set forth in the Plan to the contrary, any dividend or dividend equivalent Award issued hereunder shall be subject to the same restrictions, conditions and risks of forfeiture as apply to the underlying Award.

-12-


Section 11. Change in Control.

Unless otherwise determined by the Administrator and evidenced in an Award Agreement, in the event that (a) a Change in Control occurs, and (b) the Participant is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates immediately prior to the consummation of such Change in Control then upon the consummation of such Change in Control, the Administrator, in its sole and absolute discretion, may:

(a) provide that any unvested or unexercisable portion of any Award carrying a right to exercise become fully vested and exercisable; and

(b) cause the restrictions, deferral limitations, payment conditions and forfeiture conditions applicable to an Award granted under the Plan to lapse and such Awards shall be deemed fully vested and any performance conditions imposed with respect to such Awards shall be deemed to be fully achieved at target performance levels.

If the Administrator determines in its discretion pursuant to Section 3(b)(4) hereof to accelerate the vesting of Options and/or Share Appreciation Rights in connection with a Change in Control, the Administrator shall also have discretion in connection with such action to provide that all Options and/or Stock Appreciation Rights outstanding immediately prior to such Change in Control shall expire on the effective date of such Change in Control.

Section 12. Amendment and Termination.

The Board may amend, alter or terminate the Plan at any time, but no amendment, alteration or termination shall be made that would impair the rights of a Participant under any Award theretofore granted without such Participant’s consent. The Board shall obtain approval of the Company’s stockholders for any amendment that would require such approval in order to satisfy the requirements of any rules of the stock exchange on which the Common Stock is traded or other Applicable Law. Subject to Section 3(c), the Administrator may amend the terms of any Award theretofore granted, prospectively or retroactively, but, subject to Section 5 of the Plan and the immediately preceding sentence, no such amendment shall materially impair the rights of any Participant without his or her consent.

Section 13. Unfunded Status of Plan.

The Plan is intended to constitute an “unfunded” plan for incentive compensation. With respect to any payments not yet made to a Participant by the Company, nothing contained herein shall give any such Participant any rights that are greater than those of a general creditor of the Company.

Section 14. Withholding Taxes.

Each Participant shall, no later than the date as of which the value of an Award first becomes includible in the gross income of such Participant for purposes of applicable taxes, pay to the Company, or make arrangements satisfactory to the Administrator regarding payment of an amount up to the maximum statutory tax rates in the Participant’s applicable jurisdiction with respect to the Award, as determined by the Company. The obligations of the Company under the Plan shall be conditional on the making of such payments or arrangements, and the Company shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, have the right to deduct any such taxes from any payment of any kind otherwise due to such Participant. Whenever cash is to be paid pursuant to an Award, the Company shall have the right to deduct therefrom an amount sufficient to satisfy any applicable withholding tax requirements related thereto. Whenever Shares or property other than cash are to be delivered pursuant to an Award, the Company shall have the right to require the Participant to remit to the Company in cash an amount sufficient to satisfy any related taxes to be withheld and applied to the tax obligations; provided, that, with the approval of the Administrator, a Participant may satisfy the foregoing requirement by either (i) electing to have the Company withhold from delivery of Shares or other property, as applicable, or (ii) delivering already owned unrestricted shares of Common Stock, in each case, having a value not exceeding the applicable taxes to be withheld and applied to the tax obligations. Such already owned and unrestricted shares of Common Stock shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date on which the amount of tax to be withheld is determined and any fractional share amounts resulting therefrom shall be settled in cash. Such an election may be made with respect to all or any portion of the Shares to be delivered pursuant to an award. The Company may also use any other method of obtaining the necessary payment or proceeds, as permitted by Applicable Laws, to satisfy its withholding obligation with respect to any Award.

-13-


Section 15. Transfer of Awards.

Until such time as the Awards are fully vested and/or exercisable in accordance with the Plan or an Award Agreement, no purported sale, assignment, mortgage, hypothecation, transfer, charge, pledge, encumbrance, gift, transfer in trust (voting or other) or other disposition of, or creation of a security interest in or lien on, any Award or any agreement or commitment to do any of the foregoing (each, a “Transfer”) by any holder thereof in violation of the provisions of the Plan or an Award Agreement will be valid, except with the prior written consent of the Administrator, which consent may be granted or withheld in the sole discretion of the Administrator. Any purported Transfer of an Award or any economic benefit or interest therein in violation of the Plan or an Award Agreement shall be null and void ab initio and shall not create any obligation or liability of the Company, and any Person purportedly acquiring any Award or any economic benefit or interest therein transferred in violation of the Plan or an Award Agreement shall not be entitled to be recognized as a holder of such Shares or other property underlying such Award. Unless otherwise determined by the Administrator in accordance with the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence, an Option or a Stock Appreciation Right may be exercised, during the lifetime of the Participant, only by the Participant or, during any period during which the Participant is under a legal Disability, by the Participant’s guardian or legal representative.

Section 16. Continued Employment or Service.

Neither the adoption of the Plan nor the grant of an Award shall confer upon any Eligible Recipient any right to continued employment or service with the Company or any Affiliate thereof, as the case may be, nor shall it interfere in any way with the right of the Company or any Affiliate thereof to terminate the employment or service of any of its Eligible Recipients at any time.

Section 17. Effective Date.

The Plan was approved by the Board on May 12, 2021, and shall be adopted and become effective on the date that it is approved by the Company’s stockholders (the “Effective Date”).

Section 18. Electronic Signature.

Participant’s electronic signature of an Award Agreement shall have the same validity and effect as a signature affixed by hand.

Section 19. Term of Plan.

No Award shall be granted pursuant to the Plan on or after the tenth anniversary of the Effective Date, but Awards theretofore granted may extend beyond that date.

-14-


Section 20. Securities Matters and Regulations.

(a) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the obligation of the Company to sell or deliver Shares with respect to any Award granted under the Plan shall be subject to all Applicable Laws, rules and regulations, including all applicable federal and state securities laws, and the obtaining of all such approvals by governmental agencies as may be deemed necessary or appropriate by the Administrator. The Administrator may require, as a condition of the issuance and delivery of certificates evidencing shares of Common Stock pursuant to the terms hereof, that the recipient of such shares make such agreements and representations, and that such certificates bear such legends, as the Administrator, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or advisable.

(b) Each Award is subject to the requirement that, if at any time the Administrator determines that the listing, registration or qualification of Shares is required by any securities exchange or under any state or federal law, or the consent or approval of any governmental regulatory body is necessary or desirable as a condition of, or in connection with, the grant of an Award or the issuance of Shares, no such Award shall be granted or payment made or Shares issued, in whole or in part, unless listing, registration, qualification, consent or approval has been effected or obtained free of any conditions not acceptable to the Administrator.

(c) In the event that the disposition of Shares acquired pursuant to the Plan is not covered by a then current registration statement under the Securities Act and is not otherwise exempt from such registration, such Shares shall be restricted against transfer to the extent required by the Securities Act or regulations thereunder, and the Administrator may require a Participant receiving Common Stock pursuant to the Plan, as a condition precedent to receipt of such Common Stock, to represent to the Company in writing that the Common Stock acquired by such Participant is acquired for investment only and not with a view to distribution.

Section 21. Section 409A of the Code.

The Plan as well as payments and benefits under the Plan are intended to be exempt from, or to the extent subject thereto, to comply with Section 409A of the Code, and, accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, the Plan shall be interpreted in accordance therewith. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A of the Code, the Participant shall not be considered to have terminated employment or service with the Company for purposes of the Plan and no payment shall be due to the Participant under the Plan or any Award until the Participant would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company and its Affiliates within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code. Any payments described in the Plan that are due within the “short term deferral period” as defined in Section 409A of the Code shall not be treated as deferred compensation unless Applicable Law requires otherwise. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Plan, to the extent that any Awards (or any other amounts payable under any plan, program or arrangement of the Company or any of its Affiliates) are payable upon a separation from service and such payment would result in the imposition of any individual tax and penalty interest charges imposed under Section 409A of the Code, the settlement and payment of such awards (or other amounts) shall instead be made on the first business day after the date that is six (6) months following such separation from service (or death, if earlier). Each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this Plan shall be construed as a separate identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code. The Company makes no representation that any or all of the payments or benefits described in this Plan will be exempt from or comply with Section 409A of the Code and makes no undertaking to preclude Section 409A of the Code from applying to any such payment. The Participant shall be solely responsible for the payment of any taxes and penalties incurred under Section 409A.

Section 22. Notification of Election Under Section 83(b) of the Code.

If any Participant shall, in connection with the acquisition of shares of Common Stock under the Plan, make the election permitted under Section 83(b) of the Code, such Participant shall notify the Company of such election within ten (10) days after filing notice of the election with the Internal Revenue Service.

Section 23. No Fractional Shares.

No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued or delivered pursuant to the Plan. The Administrator shall determine whether cash, other Awards, or other property shall be issued or paid in lieu of such fractional shares or whether such fractional shares or any rights thereto shall be forfeited or otherwise eliminated.

-15-


Section 24. Beneficiary.

A Participant may file with the Administrator a written designation of a beneficiary on such form as may be prescribed by the Administrator and may, from time to time, amend or revoke such designation. If no designated beneficiary survives the Participant, the executor or administrator of the Participant’s estate shall be deemed to be the Participant’s beneficiary.

Section 25. Paperless Administration.

In the event that the Company establishes, for itself or using the services of a third party, an automated system for the documentation, granting or exercise of Awards, such as a system using an internet website or interactive voice response, then the paperless documentation, granting or exercise of Awards by a Participant may be permitted through the use of such an automated system.

Section 26. Severability.

If any provision of the Plan is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of the Plan shall not be affected but shall be applied as if the invalid or unenforceable provision had not been included in the Plan.

Section 27. Clawback.

(a) If the Company is required to prepare a financial restatement due to the material non-compliance of the Company with any financial reporting requirement, then the Committee may require any Section 16 Officer to repay or forfeit to the Company, and each Section 16 Officer agrees to so repay or forfeit, that part of the Incentive Compensation received by that Section 16 Officer during the three-year period preceding the publication of the restated financial statement that the Committee determines was in excess of the amount that such Section 16 Officer would have received had such Incentive Compensation been calculated based on the financial results reported in the restated financial statement. The Committee may take into account any factors it deems reasonable in determining whether to seek recoupment of previously paid Incentive Compensation and how much Incentive Compensation to recoup from each Section 16 Officer (which need not be the same amount or proportion for each Section 16 Officer), including any determination by the Committee that a Section 16 Officer engaged in fraud, willful misconduct or committed grossly negligent acts or omissions which materially contributed to the events that led to the financial restatement. The amount and form of the Incentive Compensation to be recouped shall be determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion, and recoupment of Incentive Compensation may be made, in the Committee’s sole and absolute discretion, through the cancellation of vested or unvested Awards, cash repayment or both.

(b) Notwithstanding any other provisions in this Plan, any Award which is subject to recovery under any Applicable Laws, government regulation or stock exchange listing requirement, will be subject to such deductions and clawback as may be required to be made pursuant to such Applicable Law, government regulation or stock exchange listing requirement (or any policy adopted by the Company pursuant to any such law, government regulation or stock exchange listing requirement).

Section 28. Governing Law.

The Plan shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law of such state.

Section 2
Conversion of Shares

2.1 At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the parties hereto, the holders of any shares of capital stock of such parties, or any other person or entity:

a. Each share of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware, par value $0.001 per share, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall be cancelled and shall cease to exist, and no consideration shall be issued in respect thereof or in exchange therefor.

b. Each share of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas, par value $0.01 per share, held in Cipherloc Texas’s treasury immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall be converted into one share of Common Stock of the Surviving Corporation, par value $0.01 per share, held in the Surviving Corporation’s treasury.

c. Each share of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas, par value $0.01 per share, issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall be converted into one share of Common Stock of the Surviving Corporation, par value $0.01 per share.

Section 3
Conversion Mechanics

3.1 At and after the Effective Time, each share certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas (a “Cipherloc Texas Certificate”) shall be deemed for all purposes to evidence ownership of, and to represent, the number of shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware into which the shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas represented by such Cipherloc Texas Certificate immediately prior to the Effective Time have been converted pursuant to this Agreement. The registered holder of any Cipherloc Texas Certificate outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, as such holder appears in the books and records of Cipherloc Texas (or of the transfer agent in respect of the Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas), immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall, until such Cipherloc Texas Certificate is surrendered for transfer or exchange, have and be entitled to exercise any voting and other rights with respect to and to receive any dividends or other distributions on the shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware into which the shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas represented by any such Cipherloc Texas Certificate have been converted pursuant to this Agreement.

3.2 Each holder of a Cipherloc Texas Certificate shall, upon the surrender of such Cipherloc Texas Certificate to the Surviving Corporation (or the transfer agent in respect of the Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware) for cancellation after the Effective Time, be entitled to receive from the Surviving Corporation (or the transfer agent in respect of the Common Stock), a certificate (a “Cipherloc Delaware Certificate”) representing the number of shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware into which the shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas represented by such Cipherloc Texas Certificate have been converted pursuant to this Agreement. If any such Cipherloc Delaware Certificate is to be issued in a name other than that in which the Cipherloc Texas Certificate surrendered for exchange is registered, such exchange shall be conditioned upon (i) the Cipherloc Texas Certificate so surrendered being properly endorsed or otherwise in proper form for transfer and (ii) the person requesting such exchange either paying any transfer or other taxes required by reason of the issuance of the Cipherloc Delaware Certificate in a name other than that of the registered holder of the Cipherloc Texas Certificate surrendered, or establishing to the satisfaction of the Surviving Corporation, or the transfer agent in respect of the Common Stock that such tax has been paid or is not applicable.

-3-


3.3 Where no Cipherloc Texas Certificate has been issued in the name of a holder of shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas, a “book entry” (i.e., a computerized or manual entry) shall be made in the shareholder records of the Surviving Corporation to evidence the issuance to such holder of an equal number of shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware.

3.4 Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time that are held by any person that is entitled to demand and properly demands payment of the fair value of such shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas pursuant to, and that complies in all respects with, the provisions of Section 10.356 of the TBOC, and does not properly withdraw such demand in accordance with Section 10.357 of the TBOC or otherwise have such rights of dissent terminated pursuant to Section 10.367 of the TBOC, in each case prior to the Effective Time (the “Dissenting Common Shares”), shall not be converted into the right to receive the consideration as provided in Section 3.1, but, instead, such person shall be entitled to such rights (but only such rights) as are granted by Section 10.354 of the TBOC. At the Effective Time, all Dissenting Common Shares shall no longer be outstanding and automatically shall be cancelled and shall cease to exist and, except as otherwise provided by the TBOC, each holder of Dissenting Common Shares shall cease to have any rights with respect to the Dissenting Common Shares, other than such rights as are granted by Section 10.354 of the TBOC. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any such person (i) shall have failed to establish entitlement to relief as a dissenting shareholder as provided in Section 10.361 of the TBOC, (ii) shall have effectively withdrawn demand for relief as a dissenting shareholder with respect to such Dissenting Common Shares under Section 10.357 of the TBOC or lost the right to relief as a dissenting shareholder under Section 10.356 of the TBOC or (iii) shall have failed to file a petition with the appropriate court seeking relief as to the determination of the value of all such Dissenting Common Shares within the time provided in Section 10.361 of the TBOC, such person shall forfeit or, in the event a court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that such person is not entitled to the relief provided by Section 10.361 of the TBOC, lose the right to relief as a dissenting shareholder with respect to such Dissenting Common Shares, and such Dissenting Common Shares shall be deemed to have been converted at the Effective Time into the consideration provided for such shares in Section 3.1.

Section 4
Benefit Plans and Warrants

4.1 Effective as of the Effective Time, automatically and without any action on the part of the holder thereof: (i) each option to purchase shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas granted under any of Cipherloc equity plan (collectively, the “Cipherloc Texas Equity Plans”) or otherwise (each option so issued, a “Cipherloc Texas Option”) that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether or not then vested or exercisable, shall cease to represent a right to acquire shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas and shall be converted into an option to purchase shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware, on substantially the same terms and conditions (including exercise price and vesting schedule) as applied to such Cipherloc Texas Option immediately prior to the Effective Time (each as so converted, a “Cipherloc Delaware Option”) and (ii) each right of any kind (including, without limitation, any warrants), vested or unvested, contingent or accrued, to receive shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas or benefits measured in whole or in part by reference to the value of Common Stock of Cipherloc Texas whether granted under the Cipherloc Texas Equity Plans or otherwise outstanding as of the Effective Time, other than Cipherloc Texas Options (each, a “Cipherloc Texas Equity Agreement”), shall, in each case, be converted into a substantially similar award for, or with respect to, shares of Common Stock of Cipherloc Delaware on substantially the same terms and conditions (including vesting schedule) as applied to such Cipherloc Texas Equity Agreement immediately prior to the Effective Time (each as so converted, a “Cipherloc Delaware Equity Agreement”).

4.2 Any Cipherloc Texas Option which qualifies as an incentive stock option under Section 422 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder shall be converted to a Cipherloc Delaware Option, to the extent possible, in accordance with Section 424 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder. Any Cipherloc Texas Option which does not qualify as an incentive stock option under Section 422 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder shall be converted to a Cipherloc Delaware Option, to the extent possible, in accordance with Section 409A of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder. Any Cipherloc Texas Equity Agreement shall be converted to a Cipherloc Delaware Equity Agreement, to the extent possible, in a manner which does not violate the requirements of Section 409A of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder.

(b) “Loss” means any expense, liability, or loss (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees, judgments, fines, amounts paid in settlement, and excise taxes or penalties arising under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974).

(c) “Other Entity” means another corporation or a partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, whether for-profit or nonprofit.

(d) “Proceeding” means any threatened, pending, or completed action, suit, alternative-dispute-resolution procedure, or other proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, including, without limitation, any action by or in the right of the Corporation, involving a Covered Person (whether as a party, a witness, or otherwise) by reason of the fact that such Covered Person is or was a Director or officer of the Corporation or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee, or agent of an Other Entity, including, without limitation, service with respect to employee benefit plans.

Section 5.2. Right to Indemnification. Any Covered Person shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Corporation to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, 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 Corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than the DGCL permitted the Corporation to provide prior to such amendment), against all Loss reasonably incurred or suffered by such Covered Person in connection with a Proceeding, and such indemnification shall inure to the benefit of such Covered Person’s heirs, executors, administrators, and legal or personal representatives; provided, however, that (a) except as otherwise provided in Section 5.4, the Corporation shall indemnify a Covered Person seeking indemnification in connection with a Proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such Covered Person only if the initiation of such Proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized by the Board, and (b) indemnification under this Article 5 shall not be available to a Covered Person in connection with any Proceeding (or part thereof) in which judgment is entered against such Covered Person for disgorgement of profits made from the purchase or sale by such Covered Person of securities of the Corporation, pursuant to the provisions of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or similar provisions of any federal, state, or local statute or regulation.

Page 7


Section 5.3. Right to Advancement of Expenses. The rights conferred in this Article 5 shall be contract rights and shall include the right of a Covered Person who is or was a Director or officer of the Corporation to be paid by the Corporation the expenses (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees) incurred by such Covered Person in defending a Proceeding or in prosecuting a suit against the Corporation to enforce such Covered Person’s rights under this Article 5, in each case in advance of the final disposition of such Proceeding or suit; provided, however, that the payment of such expenses incurred by such Covered Person in such Covered Person’s capacity as a Director or officer of the Corporation (and not in any other capacity in which service is or was rendered by such Covered Person while a Director or officer of the Corporation, including, without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) in advance of the final disposition of such Proceeding or suit shall be made only upon delivery to the Corporation of an undertaking by or on behalf of such Covered Person to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined by a final, non-appealable order of a court of competent jurisdiction that such Covered Person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article 5 or otherwise. Such undertaking shall itself be sufficient without the need for further evaluation of any credit aspects of the undertaking or with respect to such advancement.

Section 5.4. Right of Claimant to Bring Suit. If (a) a written claim under Section 5.2 is not paid in full by the Corporation within sixty (60) days after such claim, together with reasonable evidence as to the amount of such claim, has been received by the Corporation, or (b) a written claim under Section 5.3 is not paid in full by the Corporation within twenty (20) days after such claim, together with reasonable evidence as to the amount of such claim, has been received by the Corporation, then at any time thereafter, the Covered Person making such claim may bring suit against the Corporation to recover the unpaid amount of such claim, and if successful in whole or in part, such Covered Person shall also be entitled to be paid the expense, including, without limitation, attorney’s fees, of prosecuting such suit. It shall be a defense to any such suit, other than a suit brought to enforce a claim for advancement of expenses where the required undertaking, if any is required, has been tendered to the Corporation, that such Covered Person has not met the applicable standard of conduct that makes it permissible under the DGCL for the Corporation to indemnify such Covered Person for the amount claimed, but the burden of proving such defense shall be on the Corporation. Neither the failure of the Corporation (including the Board or a committee thereof, independent legal counsel, or the Stockholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such suit that indemnification of such Covered Person is proper in the circumstances because such Covered Person has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the DGCL, nor an actual determination by the Corporation (including the Board or a committee thereof, independent legal counsel, or the Stockholders) that such Covered Person has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall be a defense to such suit or create a presumption that such Covered Person has not met the applicable standard of conduct. In any suit brought by a Covered Person to enforce a right under this Article 5, or by the Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses, the burden of proving that the Covered Person is not entitled to indemnification or advancement under this Article 5 or otherwise shall be on the Corporation.

Page 8


Section 5.5. Non-Exclusivity of Rights. The rights to indemnification and the advancement of expenses conferred in this Article 5 shall not be exclusive of any other right that any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, provision of the Corporate Documents, agreement, or vote of Stockholders or disinterested Directors, or otherwise.

Section 5.6. Insurance. The Corporation may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any Director, officer, employee, or agent of the Corporation or of an Other Entity against any Loss, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such Loss under the DGCL.

Section 5.7. Setoff of Indemnification Remedies; Subrogation. In the case of a claim for indemnification or advancement of expenses against the Corporation under this Article 5 arising out of acts, events, or circumstances for which the Covered Person, who was at the relevant time serving as a Director, officer, employee, or agent of an Other Entity at the request of the Corporation, may be entitled to indemnification or advancement of expenses pursuant to such Other Entity’s certificate of incorporation, bylaws, or other governing document, or pursuant to an agreement between such Covered Person and such Other Entity, such Covered Person shall first seek indemnification or advancement of expenses pursuant to any such certificate of incorporation, bylaws, other governing document, or agreement. To the extent that amounts to be paid in indemnification or advancement to a Covered Person under this Article 5 are paid by such Other Entity, such Covered Person’s right to indemnification and advancement of expenses under this Article 5 shall be reduced. In the event and to the extent that any Covered Person receives indemnification or advancement of expenses pursuant to this Article 5, (a) the Corporation shall be subrogated, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to any right of action that such Covered Person may have against any third person respecting the Loss so indemnified or the expenses so advanced, and (b) such Covered Person shall hold in trust for, and pay to, the Corporation any amounts that such Covered Person may recover in damages or settlement from any third person respecting the Loss so indemnified or the expenses so advanced.

Section 5.8. Amendment or Repeal. The rights to indemnification and the advancement of expenses conferred in this Article 5 shall not be eliminated or impaired by an amendment to the Corporate Documents after the occurrence of the act or omission that is the subject of the Proceeding for which indemnification or advancement of expenses is sought.

Section 5.9. Severability. Whenever possible, each term and provision of this Article 5 shall be interpreted in such a way as to be effective and valid under applicable law. If any term or provision of this Article 5 is found to be illegal, or if the application thereof to any person or any circumstance shall to any extent be judicially determined to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Article 5, or the application of such term or provision to persons or circumstances other than those to which its application is judicially determined to be invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby and shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.]]

Section 6.7. Notices. Any written waiver of notice, signed by the person entitled to notice, whether executed before or after the event to which such waiver pertains, shall be deemed equivalent to proper notice. Attendance of a person at a meeting shall constitute waiver of notice of such meeting, except where attendance is for the express purpose of objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.

Section 6.8. Amendments. The Board is expressly authorized to adopt, amend or repeal the bylaws of the Corporation. Any adoption, amendment or repeal of the bylaws of the Corporation by the Board shall require the approval of a majority of the authorized number of directors.

Sec. 10.356. PROCEDURE FOR DISSENT BY OWNERS AS TO ACTIONS; PERFECTION OF RIGHT OF DISSENT AND APPRAISAL.

(a) An owner of an ownership interest of a domestic entity subject to dissenters’ rights who has the right to dissent and appraisal from any of the actions referred to in Section 10.354 may exercise that right to dissent and appraisal only by complying with the procedures specified in this subchapter. An owner’s right of dissent and appraisal under Section 10.354 may be exercised by an owner only with respect to an ownership interest that is not voted in favor of the action.
(b) To perfect the owner’s rights of dissent and appraisal under Section 10.354, an owner:
(1) if the proposed action is to be submitted to a vote of the owners at a meeting, must give to the domestic entity a written notice of objection to the action that:
(A) is addressed to the entity’s president and secretary;
(B) states that the owner’s right to dissent will be exercised if the action takes effect;
(C) provides an address to which notice of effectiveness of the action should be delivered or mailed; and
(D) is delivered to the entity’s principal executive offices before the meeting;
(2) with respect to the ownership interest for which the rights of dissent and appraisal are sought:
(A) must vote against the action if the owner is entitled to vote on the action and the action is approved at a meeting of the owners; and
(B) may not consent to the action if the action is approved by written consent; and
(3) must give to the responsible organization a demand in writing that:
(A) is addressed to the president and secretary of the responsible organization;
(B) demands payment of the fair value of the ownership interests for which the rights of dissent and appraisal are sought;
(C) provides to the responsible organization an address to which a notice relating to the dissent and appraisal procedures under this subchapter may be sent;
(D) states the number and class of the ownership interests of the domestic entity owned by the owner and the fair value of the ownership interests as estimated by the owner; and
(E) is delivered to the responsible organization at its principal executive offices at the following time:
(i) not later than the 20th day after the date the responsible organization sends to the owner the notice required by Section 10.355(e) that the action has taken effect, if the action was approved by a vote of the owners at a meeting;
(ii) not later than the 20th day after the date the responsible organization sends to the owner the notice required by Section 10.355(d)(2) that the action has taken effect, if the action was approved by the written consent of the owners;
(iii) not later than the 20th day after the date the responsible organization sends to the owner a notice that the merger was effected, if the action is a merger effected under Section 10.006; or
(iv) not later than the 20th day after the date the responsible organization gives to the shareholder the notice required by Section 10.355(b-1) or the date of the consummation of the offer described by Section 21.459(c)(2), whichever is later, if the action is a merger effected under Section 21.459(c).
(c) An owner who does not make a demand within the period required by Subsection (b)(3)(E) or, if Subsection (b)(1) is applicable, does not give the notice of objection before the meeting of the owners is bound by the action and is not entitled to exercise the rights of dissent and appraisal under Section 10.354.
(d) Not later than the 20th day after the date an owner makes a demand under Subsection (b)(3), the owner must submit to the responsible organization any certificates representing the ownership interest to which the demand relates for purposes of making a notation on the certificates that a demand for the payment of the fair value of an ownership interest has been made under this section. An owner’s failure to submit the certificates within the required period has the effect of terminating, at the option of the responsible organization, the owner’s rights to dissent and appraisal under Section 10.354 unless a court, for good cause shown, directs otherwise.

-4-


(e) If a domestic entity and responsible organization satisfy the requirements of this subchapter relating to the rights of owners of ownership interests in the entity to dissent to an action and seek appraisal of those ownership interests, an owner of an ownership interest who fails to perfect that owner’s right of dissent in accordance with this subchapter may not bring suit to recover the value of the ownership interest or money damages relating to the action.

Sec. 10.357. WITHDRAWAL OF DEMAND FOR FAIR VALUE OF OWNERSHIP INTEREST.

(a) An owner may withdraw a demand for the payment of the fair value of an ownership interest made under Section 10.356 before:
(1) payment for the ownership interest has been made under Sections 10.358 and 10.361; or
(2) a petition has been filed under Section 10.361.
(b) Unless the responsible organization consents to the withdrawal of the demand, an owner may not withdraw a demand for payment under Subsection (a) after either of the events specified in Subsections (a)(1) and (2).

Sec. 10.358. RESPONSE BY ORGANIZATION TO NOTICE OF DISSENT AND DEMAND FOR FAIR VALUE BY DISSENTING OWNER.

(2) rejecting the demand and including in the response the requirements prescribed by Subsection (c).
(b) If the responsible organization accepts the amount claimed in the demand, the responsible organization shall pay the amount not later than the 90th day after the date the action that is the subject of the demand was effected if the owner delivers to the responsible organization:

(2) signed assignments of the ownership interests if the ownership interests are uncertificated.
(c) If the responsible organization rejects the amount claimed in the demand, the responsible organization shall provide to the owner:

(2) an offer to pay the amount of the estimate provided under Subdivision (1).
(d) If the dissenting owner decides to accept the offer made by the responsible organization under Subsection (c)(2), the owner must provide to the responsible organization notice of the acceptance of the offer not later than the 90th day after the date the action that is the subject of the demand took effect.
(e) If, not later than the 90th day after the date the action that is the subject of the demand took effect, a dissenting owner accepts an offer made by a responsible organization under Subsection (c)(2) or a dissenting owner and a responsible organization reach an agreement on the fair value of the ownership interests, the responsible organization shall pay the agreed amount not later than the 120th day after the date the action that is the subject of the demand took effect, if the dissenting owner delivers to the responsible organization:
(1) endorsed certificates representing the ownership interests if the ownership interests are certificated; or
(2) signed assignments of the ownership interests if the ownership interests are uncertificated.

Sec. 10.359. RECORD OF DEMAND FOR FAIR VALUE OF OWNERSHIP INTEREST.

(a) A responsible organization shall note in the organization’s ownership interest records maintained under Section 3.151 the receipt of a demand for payment from any dissenting owner made under Section 10.356.

-5-


Sec. 10.360. RIGHTS OF TRANSFEREE OF CERTAIN OWNERSHIP INTEREST.

A transferee of an ownership interest that is the subject of a demand for payment made under Section 10.356 does not acquire additional rights with respect to the responsible organization following the transfer. The transferee has only the rights the original dissenting owner had with respect to the responsible organization after making the demand.

Sec. 10.361. PROCEEDING TO DETERMINE FAIR VALUE OF OWNERSHIP INTEREST AND OWNERS ENTITLED TO PAYMENT; APPOINTMENT OF APPRAISERS.

(a) If a responsible organization rejects the amount demanded by a dissenting owner under Section 10.358 and the dissenting owner and responsible organization are unable to reach an agreement relating to the fair value of the ownership interests within the period prescribed by Section 10.358(d), the dissenting owner or responsible organization may file a petition requesting a finding and determination of the fair value of the owner’s ownership interests in a court in:
(1) the county in which the organization’s principal office is located in this state; or

Any appreciation or depreciation in the value of the ownership interest occurring in anticipation of the proposed action or as a result of the action must be specifically excluded from the computation of the fair value of the ownership interest.
(b) In computing the fair value of an ownership interest under this subchapter, consideration must be given to the value of the domestic entity as a going concern without including in the computation of value any control premium, any minority ownership discount, or any discount for lack of marketability. If the domestic entity has different classes or series of ownership interests, the relative rights and preferences of and limitations placed on the class or series of ownership interests, other than relative voting rights, held by the dissenting owner must be taken into account in the computation of value.

-6-


(c) The determination of the fair value of an ownership interest made for purposes of this subchapter may not be used for purposes of making a determination of the fair value of that ownership interest for another purpose or of the fair value of another ownership interest, including for purposes of determining any minority or liquidity discount that might apply to a sale of an ownership interest.

(4) the dissenting owner is entitled to receive the same cash, property, rights, and other consideration received by owners of the same class and series of ownership interests held by the owner, as if the owner’s demand for payment of the fair value of the ownership interests had not been made under Section 10.356, if the owner’s ownership interests were canceled, converted, or exchanged as a result of the action or a subsequent action;
