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


On June 16, 2022, Mitch Lasky notified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Cyngn Inc. (the “Company”) that he will not stand for re-election at the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting of stockholders (“Annual Meeting”). Accordingly, Mr. Lasky will not be nominated by the Board for election at our Annual Meeting. Mr. Lasky will continue to serve as a director until the date of our Annual Meeting.


Mr. Lasky’s decision not to stand for re-election is not because of any disagreement with the Company, on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.


In accordance with the Company’s fifth amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the Board is divided into three staggered classes of directors. At the Annual Meeting, two Class I directors will be elected for a three-year term. Each director’s term continues until the election and qualification of their successors, or such director’s earlier death, resignation, or removal. Currently, Lior Tal and Mitch Lasky are Class I directors, Karen Macleod and James McDonnell are Class II directors and Colleen Cunningham is a Class III director.







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.
