Item 5.03
Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
Aterian, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to affect a 1 - 12 reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) on March 20, 2024. The Certificate of Amendment will not decrease the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Any fractional shares that would otherwise have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the nearest whole number. The number of any outstanding awards, the exercise price per share of outstanding stock options and other terms of outstanding awards issued are automatically adjusted to reflect the effects of the Reverse Stock Split. The Reverse Stock Split impacts all holders of the Common Stock proportionally and does not impact any stockholder’s percentage ownership of Common Stock (except to the extent the Reverse Stock Split results in any stockholder owning fractional shares).
The Common Stock will begin trading on a Reverse Stock Split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market when the market opens on March 22, 2024. The trading symbol for the Common Stock will remain “ATER.” The Common Stock was assigned a new CUSIP number (02156U200) following the Reverse Stock Split.
The foregoing description of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate of Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

No fractional shares shall be issued upon the Reverse Stock Split. Any shareholder holding a fractional share following the Reverse Stock Split shall have their fractional share rounded up to the next whole number, without any action on the part of the shareholder."


C. This Amendment has been duly approved and adopted by a majority of the stockholders of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon in accordance with the provisions of Section 242 of the DGCL.
