Pursuant to Section 242 of the

General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware


Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Corporation”), a corporation organized and existing under and by virtue of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, does hereby certify as follows:


A resolution was duly adopted by the Board of Directors of the Corporation on June 25, 2020 pursuant to Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware setting forth an amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation filed with the Delaware Secretary of State on February 15, 2006 (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) and declaring said amendment to be advisable. On July 31, 2020, the stockholders of the Corporation duly approved said proposed amendment at the Corporation’s Special Meeting of Stockholders in accordance with Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. The resolution setting forth the amendment pursuant to the terms approved by the Corporation’s Board of Directors, acting pursuant to the authority delegated by the Corporation’s stockholders, is as follows:



That the first sentence of Article FOURTH of the Certificate of Incorporation, be and hereby is deleted in its entirety and the following paragraphs are inserted in lieu thereof:


“The Corporation shall have the authority to issue a total of 81,666,666 shares, divided into classes of (i) 61,666,666 shares of Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), and (ii) 20,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Preferred Stock”).


Pursuant to the DGCL, at 4:01 pm Eastern Time on the date of filing (the “Effective Time”) of this Certificate of Amendment, each six shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be combined into one validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable share of Common Stock, without any further action by the Corporation or the holder thereof, subject to the treatment of fractional share interests as described below (the “Reverse Stock Split”). No certificates representing fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive the number of shares rounded up to the next whole number. Each certificate that immediately prior to the Effective Time represented shares of Common Stock (each, an “Old Certificate”) shall thereafter represent that number of shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Common Stock represented by the Old Certificate shall have been combined, subject to the elimination of fractional share interests as described above. As soon as practicable following the Effective Time, the Corporation will notify its stockholders holding shares of Common Stock in certificated form to transmit their Old Certificates to the transfer agent, and the Corporation will cause the transfer agent to issue new certificates representing the appropriate number of whole shares of Common Stock following the Reverse Stock Split for every one share of Common Stock transmitted and held of record as of the Effective Time.”


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Corporation has caused its corporate seal to be affixed hereto and this Certificate of Amendment to be signed by a duly authorized officer of the Corporation this 31st day of December, 2020.
