Item 5.08
Shareholder Director Nominations.
Reviva Pharmaceutics Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) has scheduled its 2021 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”) to be held on December 8, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time. The Company is holding the 2021 Annual Meeting as a virtual-only meeting, which will be conducted via live audio online webcast. The Company established October 11, 2021 as the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the 2021 Annual Meeting.
Because the Company did not hold an annual meeting in 2020, the deadline for submission of proposals by stockholders for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), will be the close of business on September 30, 2021, which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and distribute its proxy materials prior to the 2021 Annual Meeting. Any such proposal must also meet the requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the Exchange Act in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy materials for the 2021 Annual Meeting.
In accordance with the Company’s Bylaws, any stockholder who intends to nominate a person for election as a director or submit a proposal for inclusion at our 2021 Annual Meeting must provide notice (“Stockholder Notice”) on or before September 30, 2021. Any Stockholder Notice must comply with the specific requirements set forth in the Company’s Bylaws in order to be considered at the 2021 Annual Meeting. Any such proposal shall be mailed to: Reviva Pharmaceutics Holdings, Inc., 19925 Stevens Creek Blvd., Suite 100, Cupertino, CA 95014, Attn.: Secretary.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized
Dated: September 20, 2021
