Item 2.02  Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On December 9, 2020, Mesa Air Group, Inc. issued a press release announcing its financial and operating results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2020. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

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

On December 8, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Mesa Air Group, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a resolution to amend Article 8.1 of the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) effective on that date.  Article 8.1 of the Bylaws previously provided that the Bylaws may be altered, amended, or repealed, and new bylaws made, only by the affirmative vote of (a) majority of the Board, or (b) stockholders representing at least two-thirds or more of the votes eligible to be cast in an election of directors. The amendment (i) reduces the threshold required for stockholders to adopt, amend or repeal the Bylaws to a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at any regular meeting of the stockholders or at any special meeting of the stockholders if notice of such proposed adoption, amendment or repeal be contained in the notice of such special meeting, and (ii) sets forth certain other clarifying and conforming changes.

The foregoing description is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second Amended and Restated Bylaws, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The street address of the Corporation’s registered agent is the registered office of the Corporation in Nevada.

Other Offices. The Corporation may have other offices, either within or outside the State of Nevada, at such place or places as the Board may determine or the business of the Corporation may require from time to time.

 

 

ARTICLE II

STOCKHOLDERS’ MEETINGS

 

2.1

Place of Meetings. All meetings of stockholders shall be held at such place (if any) within or outside of the State of Nevada as may be determined from time to time by the Board or, if not determined by the Board, by the Chairman of the Board, the President or the Chief Executive Officer; provided, however that the Board may, in its sole discretion, determine that any meeting of stockholders shall not be held at any place but shall be held solely by means of electronic communications, videoconferencing, teleconferencing or other available technology authorized by and in accordance with the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”), provided that the Corporation has implemented reasonable measures to: (a) verify the identity of each person participating through such means as a stockholder; and (b) provide the stockholders a reasonable opportunity to participate in the meeting and to vote on matters submitted to the stockholders, including an opportunity to communicate, and to read or hear the proceedings of the meetings in a substantially concurrent manner with such proceedings.

 

2.2

Annual Meeting. Each annual meeting of the stockholders shall be held at such time and date as the Board shall determine. At each annual meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders shall elect directors and transact such other business as has been properly brought before the meeting in accordance with this Section 2. To be properly brought before an annual meeting, nominations and other business must be: (i) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board (or any duly authorized committee thereof), (ii) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board, or

 

(iii) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a stockholder of record at the time of giving notice provided for in the Corporation’s bylaws (as amended from time to time, the

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

Bylaws”), who is entitled to vote at the meeting and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.

 

2.3

Special Meetings. Special meetings of stockholders may be called at any time only by any two or more directors, the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, or the President, for any purpose or purposes prescribed in the notice of the meeting and shall be held on such date and at such time as the Board may fix. Business transacted at any special meeting of stockholders shall be confined to the purpose or purposes stated in the notice of meeting. Except as otherwise restricted by the Corporation’s articles of incorporation (as amended from time to time, the Articles of Incorporation”) or applicable law, the Board may postpone, reschedule or cancel any special meeting of stockholders.

 

 

2.4

Record Dates.

 

(a)For the purpose of determining the stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment or postponement thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any distribution or the allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than sixty

(60) days nor less than ten (10) days before the date of such meeting, if applicable.

 

(b)If no record date is fixed, the record date for determining stockholders: (i) entitled to notice of and to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the day next preceding the date on which notice is given, or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held; and (ii) for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board adopts the resolution relating thereto. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment or postponement of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board may fix a new record date for the adjourned or postponed meeting and must fix a new record date if the meeting is adjourned or postponed to a date more than sixty (60) days later than the meeting date set for the original meeting.

2.5

Notice of Meetings; Waiver of Notice. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, a written notice of each annual and special meeting of the stockholders shall be given not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of such meeting to each stockholder of record of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting stating the time and place of the meeting and the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called. Such notice shall be (a) mailed postage prepaid to a stockholder at the stockholder’s address as it appears on the stock books of the Corporation, or (b) delivered to a stockholder by any other method of delivery permitted at such time by the NRS and other applicable law and by the rules of any exchange on which the Corporation’s shares are listed at such time. The written certificate of the individual signing a notice of meeting, setting forth the substance of the notice or having a copy thereof attached, the date the notice was mailed or otherwise delivered to the stockholders and the addresses to which the notice was mailed shall be prima facie evidence of the manner and fact of giving such notice. Any stockholder may waive notice of any meeting by a signed

 

 

2

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

writing, either before or after the meeting. Such waiver of notice shall be deemed the equivalent of the giving of such notice.

 

2.6

Quorum; Adjournment. Except as otherwise provided by law or the Bylaws, the holders of a majority of the shares of the capital stock of the corporation entitled to vote at the meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, regardless of whether the proxy has authority to vote on all matters, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Where a separate class vote by a class or classes or series is required by the NRS, the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, a majority of the shares of such class or classes or series present in person or represented by proxy shall constitute a quorum entitled to take action with respect to that vote on that matter. Regardless of whether or not a quorum is present or represented at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders, the chairman of the meeting, or, in the absence of such person, any officer entitled to preside at or to act as secretary of such meeting, or the holders of a majority of the shares of stock entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at such meeting, until a quorum shall be present in person or represented by proxy, provided, however, that if a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented by proxy, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally noticed.

 

 

2.7

Voting.

 

(a)Unless otherwise provided in the NRS or the Articles of Incorporation (including the certificate of designation relating to any outstanding class or series of the Corporation’s capital stock), each stockholder of record, or such stockholder’s duly authorized proxy, shall be entitled to one (1) vote for each share of voting stock standing registered in such stockholder’s name at the close of business on the record date.

 

(b)If a quorum is present, unless the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, the rules or regulations of any stock exchange applicable to the Corporation, Chapter 78 of the NRS or other applicable law provides for a different proportion, action by the stockholders entitled to vote on a matter, other than the election of directors, is approved by and is the act of the stockholders if the number of votes cast in favor of the action exceeds the number of votes cast in opposition to the action, unless voting by classes or series is required for any action of the stockholders by the NRS, the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, in which case the number of votes cast in favor of the action by the voting power of each such class or series must exceed the number of votes cast in opposition to the action by the voting power of each such class or series.

 

 

 

cast.

 

(c)

 

If a quorum is present, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes

 

 

(d)

In determining the right to vote shares of the Corporation pursuant to this

 

Section 2.7 or otherwise, the Corporation may rely on any instruments or statements presented to it, provided that the Corporation has the right, but not the obligation, to require and review such

 

3

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

proof of ownership and voting rights as it determines in good faith. The Corporation is entitled to reject a vote, consent, waiver or proxy appointment if the secretary or other officer or agent authorized to tabulate votes, acting in good faith, has reasonable basis for doubt about the validity of the signature on it or about the signatory’s authority to sign for the stockholder. All decisions of the Corporation shall be valid and binding unless and until a court of competent jurisdiction determines otherwise.

 

2.8

Proxies. Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders may authorize, in a manner permitted by the NRS, another person or persons to act for such stockholder by proxy. Every proxy shall continue in full force and effect until its expiration or revocation in a manner permitted by the NRS. A proxy may be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and, if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient to support an irrevocable power. Subject to the above, any proxy may be revoked if an instrument or transmission revoking it or a properly created proxy bearing a later date is filed with or transmitted to the Secretary or another person appointed by the Corporation to count the votes of stockholders and determine the validity of proxies and ballots, or, in the case of a meeting of stockholders, the stockholder revokes the proxy by attending the meeting and voting the stockholder’s shares in person, in which case, any vote cast by the person or persons designated by the stockholder to act as a proxy or proxies must be disregarded by the Corporation when the votes are counted.

 

2.9

Director Nominations. Subject to the rights, if any, of the holders of preferred stock to nominate and elect directors, nominations of persons for election to the Board may be made by the Board, by a committee appointed by the Board or by any stockholder of record entitled to vote in the election of directors who complies with the notice procedures set forth in Section 2.10.

(2) properly made such proposal in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (as so amended and inclusive of such rules and regulations, the “Exchange Act”), which proposal has been included in the proxy statement for the annual meeting.

Exhibit 3.1

supplements to such notice at the times and in the forms required by this Section 2.10, and any such proposed business (other than the nominations of persons for election to the Board) must constitute a proper matter for stockholder action. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the ninetieth (90th) day, nor earlier than the close of business on the one hundred twentieth (120th) day, prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting (provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is more than thirty (30) days before or more than seventy (70) days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the one hundred twentieth (120th) day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such annual meeting or the tenth (10th) day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made by the Corporation). In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above. To be in proper form, such stockholder’s notice must:

(1)as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election as a director of the Corporation, set forth (A) the name, age, business address and residence address of the nominee; (B) the principal occupation or employment of the nominee; (C) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are owned by the nominee, including shares beneficially owned and shares held of record; (D) whether and the extent to which any hedging or other transaction or series of transactions has been entered into by or on behalf of the nominee with respect to any securities of the Corporation, and a description of any other agreement, arrangement or understanding (including any short position or any borrowing or lending of shares), the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss to, or to manage the risk or benefit of share price changes for, or to increase or decrease the voting power of the nominee, (E) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the stockholder and each nominee and any other person or persons (naming such person or persons) pursuant to which the nominations are to be made by the stockholder, (F) a written statement executed by the nominee acknowledging that as a director of the Corporation, the nominee will owe fiduciary duties under Nevada law as a director of a corporation, and (G) any other information relating to the nominee that would be required to be disclosed about such nominee if proxies were being solicited for the election of the nominee as a director, or that is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Section 14A of the Exchange Act (including without limitation the nominee’s written consent to being named in the proxy statement, if any, as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected);

 

(2)as to any other business that the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting, set forth (A) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, (B) the text of the proposal or business (including the text of any resolutions proposed for consideration and in the event that such business includes a proposal to amend the Bylaws, the exact phrasing of the proposed amendment), (C) the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting and any material interest in such business of such stockholder and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made, and (D) any other information relating to such item of business that would be required to be disclosed in a proxy statement or other filing required to be made in connection with the solicitation of proxies in support of the

 

5

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

business proposed to be brought before the meeting pursuant to Section 14A of the Exchange Act; and

 

(3)as to the stockholder giving the notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made, set forth (A) the name and address of such stockholder, as they appear on the Corporation’s books, and of such beneficial owner, (B) the class or series and number of shares of stock which are owned beneficially and of record by such stockholder and such beneficial owner, except that such stockholder shall in all events be deemed to beneficially own any shares of any class or series of stock of the Corporation as to which such stockholder has a right to acquire beneficial ownership at any time in the future, (C) a description of any agreement, arrangement or understanding with respect to the nomination or proposal between or among such stockholder and/or such beneficial owner, any of their respective affiliates or associates, and any others acting in concert with any of the foregoing, including, in the case of a nomination, the nominee, (D) a description of any agreement, arrangement or understanding (including any derivative or short positions, profit interests, options, warrants, convertible securities, stock appreciation or similar rights, hedging transactions, and borrowed or loaned shares) that has been entered into as of the date of the stockholder’s notice by, or on behalf of, such stockholder and such beneficial owners, whether or not such instrument or right shall be subject to settlement in underlying shares of stock of the Corporation, the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss to, manage risk or benefit of share price changes for, or increase or decrease the voting power of, such stockholder or such beneficial owner, with respect to securities of the Corporation, (E) a representation that the stockholder is a holder of record of stock entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to propose such business or nomination, (F) a representation whether the stockholder or the beneficial owner, if any, intends or is part of a group which intends (x) to deliver a proxy statement and/or form of proxy to holders of at least the percentage of outstanding stock required to approve or adopt the proposal or elect the nominee and/or (y) otherwise to solicit proxies or votes from stockholders in support of such proposal or nomination, (G) any material pending or threatened legal proceeding in which such stockholder is a party or material participant involving the Corporation or any of its officers or directors, or any affiliate of the Corporation, (H) any other material relationship between such stockholder, on the one hand, and the Corporation or any affiliate of the Corporation, on the other hand, and (I) any other information relating to such stockholder and beneficial owner, if any, required to be disclosed in a proxy statement or other filings required to be made in connection with solicitations of proxies for, as applicable, the proposal and/or for the election of directors in an election contest pursuant to and in accordance with Section 14A of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

The foregoing notice requirements of this Section 2.10(a) shall be deemed satisfied by a stockholder with respect to business other than a nomination for election as a director of the Corporation if the stockholder has notified the Corporation of his, her or its intention to present a proposal at an annual meeting in compliance with applicable rules and regulations promulgated under the Exchange Act and such stockholder’s proposal has been included in a proxy statement that has been prepared by the Corporation to solicit proxies for such annual meeting. The Corporation may require any proposed nominee for election as a director of the Corporation to

 

6

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

furnish such other information as the Corporation may reasonably require to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the Corporation.

 

(iii)Notwithstanding anything in the second sentence of Section 2.10(a)(ii) of the Bylaws to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors to be elected to the Board at the annual meeting is increased effective after the time period for which nominations would otherwise be due under Section 2.10(a)(ii) of the Bylaws and there is no public announcement by the Corporation naming the nominees for the additional directorships at least one hundred (100) days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, a stockholder’s notice required by this Section 2.10 shall also be considered timely, but only with respect to nominees for the additional directorships, if it shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following the day on which such public announcement of such increase is first made by the Corporation.

(b)Special Meetings of Stockholders. The only business to be conducted at a special meeting of stockholders is that brought before the meeting pursuant to the Corporation’s notice of meeting. Nominations of persons for election to the Board may be made at a special meeting of stockholders at which directors are to be elected pursuant to the Corporation’s notice of meeting (1) by or at the direction of the Board or a committee appointed by the Board or (2) provided that the Board has determined that directors shall be elected at such meeting, by any stockholder who is a stockholder of record at the time the notice provided for in this Section 2.10 is delivered to the Secretary, who is entitled to vote at the meeting and upon such election and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.10. In the event the Corporation calls a special meeting of stockholders for the purpose of electing one or more directors to the Board, any such stockholder entitled to vote in such election of directors may nominate a person or persons (as the case may be) for election to such position(s) as specified in the Corporation’s notice of meeting, if the stockholder’s notice required by Section 2.10(a)(ii) of the Bylaws shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not earlier than the close of business on the one hundred twentieth (120th) day prior to such special meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such special meeting or, if the first public announcement of the date of such special meeting is less than 100 days prior to the date of such special meeting, the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following the day on which the Corporation makes a public announcement of the date of the special meeting. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of a special meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above.

 

(c)

General.

 

(i)Except as otherwise expressly provided in any applicable rule or regulation promulgated under the Exchange Act, only such persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.10 shall be eligible to be elected at an annual or special meeting of stockholders to serve as directors and only such business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.10. Except as otherwise provided by law, the chairman of the meeting shall have the power and duty (A) to determine whether a

 

7

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting was made or proposed, as the case may be, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.10 (including whether the stockholder or beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made or solicited (or is part of a group which solicited) or did not so solicit, as the case may be, proxies or votes in support of such stockholder’s nominee or proposal in compliance with such stockholder’s representation as required by Section 2.13(a)(ii)(4)(F) of the Bylaws) and (B) if any proposed nomination or business was not made or proposed in compliance with this Section 2.10, to declare that such nomination shall be disregarded or that such proposed business shall not be transacted. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10, unless otherwise required by law, if the stockholder (or a qualified representative of the stockholder) does not appear at the annual or special meeting of stockholders to present a nomination or proposed business, such nomination shall be disregarded and such proposed business shall not be transacted, notwithstanding that proxies in respect of such vote may have been received by the Corporation. For purposes of this Section 2.10, to be considered a qualified representative of the stockholder, a person must be a duly authorized officer, manager or partner of such stockholder or must be authorized by a writing executed by such stockholder or an electronic transmission delivered by such stockholder to act for such stockholder as proxy at the meeting of stockholders and such person must produce such writing or electronic transmission, or a reliable reproduction of the writing or electronic transmission, at the meeting of stockholders.

(ii)For purposes of this Section 2.10, public announcement shall include disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or other national news service or in a document publicly filed by the Corporation with the SEC pursuant to Section 13, 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

(iii)Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10, a stockholder shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this Section 2.10; provided, however, that any references in the Bylaws to the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder are not intended to and shall not limit any requirements applicable to nominations or proposals as to any other business to be considered pursuant to this Section 2.10 (including clause (a)(ii)(3)) hereof and clause (b) hereof), and compliance with clauses (a)(ii)(3) and (b) of this Section 2.10 shall be the exclusive means for a stockholder to make nominations or submit other business (other than, as provided in the clause (a)(i) hereof, business other than nominations brought properly under and in compliance with Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Exchange Act, as may be amended from time to time). Nothing in this Section 2.10 shall be deemed to affect any rights (x) of stockholders to request inclusion of proposals or nominations in the Corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to applicable rules and regulations promulgated under the Exchange Act or (y) of the holders of any series of preferred stock of the Corporation to elect directors pursuant to any applicable provisions of the Articles of Incorporation.

 

(iv)A stockholder providing notice of its intent to propose business or to nominate a person for election to the Board shall update and supplement its notice to the Corporation, if necessary, so that the information provided or required to be provided in such notice pursuant to this Section 2.10 shall be true and correct as of the record date for notice of

Exhibit 3.1

the meeting and as of the date that is ten (10) business days prior to the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof, and such update and supplement shall be delivered to, or mailed and received by, the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than five (5) business days after the record date for notice of the meeting (in the case of the update and supplement required to be made as of such record date), and not later than eight (8) business days prior to the date for the meeting or, if practicable, any adjournment or postponement thereof (and, if not practicable, on the first practicable date prior to the date to which the meeting has been adjourned or postponed) (in the case of the update and supplement required to be made as of ten (10) business days prior to the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof).

 

2.11

Conduct of Business. Subject to the requirements of the NRS and the express provisions of the Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws, all annual and special meetings of stockholders shall be conducted in accordance with such rules and procedures as the Board may determine and, as to matters not governed by such rules and procedures, as the chairman of such meeting shall determine. Meetings of stockholders shall be presided over by the Chairman of the Board of Directors, or, in the absence of the Chairman, by the Chief Executive Officer, if any, or if there be no Chief Executive Officer or in the absence of the Chief Executive Officer, by the President, or, in the absence of the President, or, in the absence of any of the foregoing persons, by a chairman designated by the Board of Directors, or by a chairman chosen at the meeting by the stockholders entitled to cast a majority of the votes which all stockholders present in person or by proxy are entitled to cast.

Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, except as otherwise provided in Section 6.3, the Corporation shall be required to indemnify a Covered Person in connection with a Proceeding (or part thereof) commenced by such Covered Person only if the commencement of such Proceeding (or part thereof) by the Covered Person was authorized by the Board.

 

6.2

Prepayment of Expenses. The Corporation shall pay the expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by a Covered Person in defending any Proceeding in advance of its final disposition, provided, however, that, to the extent required by applicable law, such payment of expenses in advance of the final disposition of the Proceeding shall be made only upon receipt of an undertaking by the Covered Person to repay all amounts advanced if it should be ultimately determined that the Covered Person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article VI or otherwise.

 

 

6.3

Claims. If a claim for indemnification or advancement of expenses under this Article 6 is not paid in full within 30 days after a written claim therefor by the Covered Person has been received by the Corporation, the Covered Person may file suit to recover the unpaid amount of such claim and, if successful in whole or in part, shall be entitled to be paid the expense of prosecuting such claim. In any such action, the Corporation shall have the burden of proving that the Covered Person is not entitled to the requested indemnification or advancement of expenses under applicable law.

 

 

6.4

Non-Exclusivity of Rights. The rights conferred on any person in this Article VI shall not be exclusive of any other right which such persons may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, provision of the Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise.

6.6

Other Sources. The Corporation’s obligation, if any, to indemnify or to advance expenses to any Covered Person who was or is serving at its request as a director, officer, employee or agent of an Other Entity shall be reduced by any amount such Covered Person collects as indemnification or advancement of expenses from such Other Entity.

ARTICLE VII

LIMITATIONS ON OWNERSHIP BY NON-CITIZENS

 

7.1

Non-Citizen Voting and Ownership Limitations. It is the policy of the Corporation that, consistent with the requirements of Subtitle VII of Title 49 of the United States Code, as amended, or as the same may be from time to time amended (the Aviation Act”), that persons or entities who are not a “citizen of the United States” (as defined in Section 40102(a)(15) of the Aviation Act, in any similar legislation of the United States enacted in substitution or replacement thereof, and as interpreted by the Department of Transportation, its predecessors and successors, from time to time), including any agent, trustee or representative of such persons or entities (each, a “Non-Citizen”), shall not be entitled to own (beneficially or of record) and/or control more than (a) 24.9% of the aggregate votes of all outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation (the Voting Cap Amount”) or (b) 49.0% of the total number of outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation (the “Control Cap Amount”). If Non- Citizens nonetheless at any time own and/or control more than the Voting Cap Amount, the voting rights of the shares of capital stock in excess of the Voting Cap Amount shall be automatically suspended in accordance with Section 7.2 below. Further, if at any time a transfer or issuance of capital stock to a Non-Citizen would result in Non-Citizens owning more than the Control Cap Amount, such transfer or issuance shall be void and of no effect, in accordance with Section 7.2 below.

 

 

7.2

Foreign Stock Record.

 

(a)The Corporation or its transfer agent shall maintain a separate stock record, designated the Foreign Stock Record,” for the registration of shares of capital stock held by Non-Citizens. It is the duty of each stockholder who is a Non-Citizen to register his, her or its shares of capital stock on the Foreign Stock Record. The beneficial ownership of shares of the Corporation’s capital stock by Non-Citizens shall be determined in conformity with

 

17

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

regulations prescribed by the Board. Only shares that have been issued and are outstanding may be registered in the Foreign Stock Record. The Foreign Stock Record shall include (i) the name and nationality of each Non-Citizen owning shares of capital stock, (ii) the number of shares owned by each such Non-Citizen and (iii) the date of registration of such shares in the Foreign Stock Record.

 

(b)In no event shall shares of capital stock of the Corporation owned (beneficially or of record) by Non-Citizens representing more than the Voting Cap Amount be voted. In the event that Non-Citizens shall own (beneficially or of record) or have voting control over any shares of capital stock, the voting rights of such persons shall be subject to automatic suspension to the extent required to ensure that the Corporation is in compliance with applicable provisions of law and regulations relating to ownership or control of a United States air carrier. Voting rights of shares owned (beneficially or of record) by Non-Citizens shall be suspended in reverse chronological order based upon the date of registration in the Foreign Stock Record.

 

(c)In the event that any transfer or issuance of shares of capital stock of the Corporation to a Non-Citizen would result in Non-Citizens owning (beneficially or of record) more than the Control Cap Amount, such transfer or issuance shall be void and of no effect and shall not be recorded in the Foreign Stock Record or the stock records of the Corporation. In the event that the Corporation shall determine that the shares of capital stock registered on the Foreign Stock Record or otherwise registered on the stock records of the Corporation and owned (beneficially or of record) by Non-Citizens, taken together (without duplication), exceed the Control Cap Amount, such number of shares shall be removed from the Foreign Stock Record and the stock records of the Corporation, as applicable, in reverse chronological order based on the date of registration in the Foreign Stock Record and the stock records of the Corporation, as applicable, and any transfer or issuance that resulted in such event shall be deemed void and of no effect, such that the Foreign Stock Record and the stock records of the Corporation, as applicable, reflect the ownership of shares without giving effect to any transfer or issuance that caused the Corporation to exceed the Control Cap Amount until the aggregate number of shares registered in the Foreign Stock Record or otherwise registered to Non-Citizens is equal to the Control Cap Amount.

7.3

Registration of Shares. Registry of the ownership of shares of capital stock of the Corporation by Non-Citizens shall be effected by written notice to, and in the form specified from time to time by, the Secretary of the Corporation. Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7.2, the order in which such shares shall be registered on the Foreign Stock Record shall be chronological, based on the date the Corporation received notice to so register such shares; provided that any Non-Citizen who purchases or otherwise acquires shares that are registered on the Foreign Stock Record and who registers such shares in its own name within 30 days of such acquisition will assume the position of the seller of such shares in the chronological order of shares registered on the Foreign Stock Record.

 

 

 

7.4

Certification of Shares.

 

(a)The Corporation may by notice in writing (which may be included in the form of proxy or ballot distributed to stockholders in connection with the annual meeting or any special meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation, or otherwise) require a person that is

 

18

 

 


Exhibit 3.1

1)

all shares as to which such person has record ownership or beneficial ownership are owned and controlled only by citizens of the United States; or

 

 

 

2)

the number of shares of record or beneficially owned by such person that are owned and/or controlled by Non-Citizens is as set forth in such certificate.

 

 

(b)With respect to any shares identified in response to clause (a)(2) above, the Corporation may require such person to provide further information as the Corporation may reasonably require in order to implement the provisions of this Article VII.

 

(c)For purposes of applying the provisions of this Article VII with respect to any shares, in the event of the failure of any person to provide the certificate or other information to which the Corporation is entitled pursuant to this Section 7.4, the Corporation shall presume that the shares in question are owned and/or controlled by Non-Citizens.

Mesa’s Adjusted EBITDA1 for Q4 2020 was $44.6 million, compared to $50.8 million in Q4 2019, and Adjusted EBITDAR1 was $54.2 million for Q4 2020, compared to $61.9 million in Q4 2019.  For Q4 2020 revenue was $108.0 million, a reduction of $79.8 million (42%) from $187.8 for Q4 2019 primarily due to the reduced flying as a result of COVID-19.  During the quarter Mesa recognized $40.8 million as an offset to wages and salaries related to the previously announced Payroll Support Program Agreement (“PSP”), which required Mesa to retain all of its employees.

 

Operationally, the Company ran a 99.8% controllable completion factor, compared to 99.0% in Q4 2019, and a total completion factor of 98.2%, which primarily includes weather, close-in capacity reductions driven by reduced demand, and other uncontrollable cancellations, compared to 96.9% in Q4 2019.

 

Full Year

 

Mesa reported net income of $27.5 million, or $0.78 per diluted share for the 2020 fiscal year, compared to net income of $47.6 million, or $1.36 per diluted share for the 2019 fiscal year.  Excluding special items for both periods, adjusted net income1 was $27.5 million or $0.78 per diluted share for the 2020 fiscal year, compared to $57.5 million or $1.64 per diluted share for the 2019 fiscal year. Mesa fiscal 2020 results include, per GAAP, the deferral of $23.8 million of revenue, all of which was billed and paid by American and United during the year and will be recognized over the remaining terms of the contracts. Mesa’s Adjusted EBITDA1 was $163.3 million in fiscal year 2020, compared to $208.7 million in fiscal year 2019 and Adjusted EBITDAR was $212.1 million in fiscal year 2020, compared to $260.9 million in fiscal year 2019. For fiscal year 2020, revenue was $545.1 million, a reduction of $178.3 million (25%) from $723.4 million for fiscal year 2019, primarily due to the reduced flying as a result of COVID-19. During the year, Mesa recognized $83.8 million as an offset to wages and salaries related to the previously announced Payroll Support Program Agreement (“PSP”), which required Mesa to retain all of its employees as of April 20, 2020.

Operationally, we ran a 99.9% controllable completion factor compared to 99.4% in 2019 and a 94.8% total completion factor, which includes weather, close-in capacity reductions driven by reduced demand, and other uncontrollable cancellations and flights, compared to 97.0% in 2019.

“Our industry was among the hardest hit by COVID-19 and the global impact that followed,” said Jonathan Ornstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite a significant reduction in flying, we were able to find creative ways to reduce costs, operate profitably, generate positive cash-flow, and protect our employees from involuntary furloughs. We also entered the cargo market through our new agreement with DHL - diversifying our revenue sources and creating new opportunities for our company. I can’t thank our hardworking employees enough, their dedication and professionalism truly went above and beyond this year.”

Mike Lotz, President and Chief Financial Officer, continued, “Given the impact of the pandemic, our financial performance exceeded our early expectations. We also improved our liquidity and closed on a $195 million five-year loan under the CARES Act.”

“Despite the global pandemic, our employees showed up day after day to safely and efficiently keep our operation moving,” said Brad Rich, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Our operational performance coupled with our low-cost model helped Mesa extend our relationship with American; flying 40 CRJ-900 aircraft for a five-year term. We also took delivery of 10 of our 20 new E175 aircraft for United and added two 737-400F cargo aircraft to our fleet operating for DHL.”

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures

Although these financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”), certain non-GAAP financial measures may provide investors with useful information regarding the underlying business trends and performance of Mesa’s ongoing operations and may be useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations. The tables below reflect supplemental financial data and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2020 and the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2019. Readers should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, not a substitute for, financial reporting measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-

 


GAAP financial measures exclude some, but not all items that may affect the Company’s net income. Additionally, these calculations may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of other companies.
