To: James A. Barnes, Corporate Secretary of Wrap Technologies, Inc.

Wrap Technologies, Inc.

1817 W 4th Street

Tempe, Arizona 85281

 

Cc: The Board of Directors of Wrap Technologies, Inc. (via email)

 

To Corporate Secretary of Wrap Technologies, Inc.

 

I am the beneficial owner of approximately 17.3% of the outstanding shares of Wrap Technologies, Inc. (“Wrap”, or the “Company”). By this letter, I hereby supplement the notice provided in my January 4, 2021 letter to the Board of Directors of my intention to propose at the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders a slate of nominees for director election, a potential amendment to Article III, Section 2 of the Company’s bylaws to establish a higher minimum number of directors, and such other proposals made on or after the date hereof that are consistent with the disclosures in the Schedule 13D filed by me and my family trust with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 4, 2021 (including, if I deem it necessary, a proposal to repeal any Bylaw amendments or new Bylaws adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company on or after the date of this letter). These proposals (including the nominations) would not be stockholder proposals to be included in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. I currently intend to solicit proxies from the holders of at least the minimum number of shares of stock that I believe are necessary to elect my nominees and adopt my other proposals.

 

Nothing in this letter shall be construed as any admission or acknowledgement that advance notice is or was required for me to make any proposals or nomination at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. I reserve all of my rights to make or withdraw any proposals or nominations at any time.

 

Please confirm in writing, within five days of the date of this letter, that my nominations and proposals may be presented at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

 

Very truly yours,

 

/s/ Elwood G. Norris
