Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 29, 2020, at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Zogenix, Inc. (the “Company”), the Company’s stockholders approved the amendment and restatement of the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “Restated ESPP”). The Restated ESPP increased the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the 2010 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “Prior ESPP”) from 375,000 to 875,000 shares. The Prior ESPP was scheduled to expire in October 2020 and the Restated ESPP will not have a fixed term and will continue until terminated by our board of directors or the share reserve thereunder is exhausted. In addition, the Restated ESPP eliminated the “evergreen provision” that provided for an annual increase in the number of shares available for issuance under the Prior ESPP on January 1 of each year during its initial ten-year term. The foregoing description of the Restated ESPP is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the plan filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 29, 2020, and incorporated herein by reference.
