Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
Effective as of March 3 , 2017, Carolco Pictures, Inc. (the “Company”) amended its Articles of Incorporation to amend the Certificate of Designation (the “Certificate of Designation”) for the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock (the “Series C Stock”).
The amendment of the Certificate of Designation inserted a 4.99% equity blocker to the conversion provisions thereof, which prevents the holder of the Series C Stock from converting the Series C Stock into common stock of the Company if such conversion would result in such holder’s ownership at any given time exceeding 4.99% of the Company’s outstanding common stock (which blocker may be waived by the holder upon 60 days’ prior notice to the Company). No other changes were made to the Certificate of Designation.
The information set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of the Certificate of Designation attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and which is incorporated herein by reference.
The Certificate of Designation for the Series C Stock is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1.

Section 1. Definitions . For the purposes hereof, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
|(a)||“Common Stock” means the Corporation’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share.|
|(b)||“Person” means a corporation, an association, a partnership, an organization, a business, an individual, a government or political subdivision thereof or a governmental agency.|
Section 2. Designation and Amount . The series of preferred stock shall be designated as Series C Preferred Stock (the “Series C Stock”) and the number of shares so designated shall be 41,000,000 shares.
Section 3. Rights and Powers .
|(a)||Economic Rights . The Series C Stock shall have no economic rights to receive any distributions or other assets of the Corporation.|
|(b)||Dividend Rights . The Series C Stock shall have no dividend rights except as may be declared by the Board in its sole and absolute discretion, out of funds legally available for that purpose.|
|(c)||Vote . The holders of shares of Series C Stock (each, a “Holder” and collectively, the “Holders”) shall be entitled to vote on all matters requiring a shareholder vote of the Corporation and each shareholder of record of Series C Stock shall have one (1) vote for each Series C Stock share outstanding in his, her or its name on the books of the Corporation relative to each Common Stock share.|
|(d)||Conversion . At the option of the Holder (subject to the last sentence of this 0) each share of Series C Stock shall be convertible into two (2) shares of Common Stock of the Company. There shall be no adjustment to the conversion ratio set forth in the immediately preceding sentence in the event of a reverse stock split or forward stock split of the Common Stock or for any other reason. Notwithstanding the forgoing, no Holder shall have any right to convert any shares of Series C Stock into shares of Common Stock until the time that there are sufficient shares of Common Stock of the Company authorized to permit the conversion of all authorized shares of Series C Stock.|
|(e)||Limitation . Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this 0, in no event shall the Holder be entitled to convert any portion of such Holder’s Series C Stock in excess of that number of shares of such Holder’s Series C Stock upon conversion of which the sum of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates (other than shares of Common Stock which may be deemed beneficially owned through the ownership of the unconverted portion of such Holder’s Series C Stock or the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other security of the Corporation subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitations contained herein) and (2) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of such number of shares of such Holder’s Series C Stock with respect to which the determination of this proviso is being made, would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. For purposes of the proviso in the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Regulations 13D-G thereunder. Provided further however, that the limitations on conversion may be waived by the Holder upon, at the election of the Holder, not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Corporation, and the provisions of the conversion limitation shall continue to apply until such 61 st day (or such later date, as determined by the Holder, as may be specified in such notice of waiver).|

|(c)||Lost or Mutilated Series C Stock Certificate . If a Holder’s Series C Stock certificate shall be mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Corporation shall execute and deliver, in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation of a mutilated certificate, or in lieu of or in substitution for a lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, a new certificate for the shares of Series C Stock so mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed but only upon receipt of evidence of such loss, theft or destruction of such certificate, and of the ownership hereof, and indemnity, if requested, all reasonably satisfactory to the Corporation.|
|(d)||Governing Law . All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Certificate of Designation shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law thereof. Each party agrees that all legal proceedings concerning the interpretations, enforcement and defense of the Series C Stock (whether brought against a party hereto or its respective affiliates, directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents) shall be commenced in the state and federal courts sitting in the State of Florida (the “Florida Courts”). Each party hereto hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Florida Courts for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein, and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, or such Florida Courts are improper or inconvenient venue for such proceeding.

Any waiver must be in writing.|
|(f)||Severability . If any provision of this Certificate of Designation is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the balance of this Certificate of Designation shall remain in effect, and if any provision is inapplicable to any Person or circumstance, it shall nevertheless remain applicable to all other Persons and circumstances. If it shall be found that any interest or other amount deemed interest due hereunder violates applicable laws governing usury, the applicable rate of interest due hereunder shall automatically be lowered to equal the maximum permitted rate of interest.|
|(g)||Next Business Day . Whenever any payment or other obligation hereunder shall be due on a day other than a day on which banks are generally required or authorized to be open for business in the State of Florida (a “Business Day”), such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day.|
|(h)||Headings . The headings contained herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Certificate of Designation and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.|
