Amendment to Certificate of Incorporation

Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) held its annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) on June 7, 2023. As further described below, at the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amended and Restated Certificate”) to declassify the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board of Directors”) and remove obsolete provisions. The Amended and Restated Certificate had previously been approved by the Board of Directors, subject to stockholder approval, and became effective upon filing with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on June 7, 2023.

Pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Certificate, the declassification of the Board of Directors will be phased in over a three-year period, as described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 27, 2023 (the “Proxy Statement”). The directors elected at the Annual Meeting were elected for a three-year term and the Company’s continuing directors will be elected for one-year terms as their present terms expire. Therefore, beginning with the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders in 2026, all directors will stand for election at each annual meeting of stockholders for a one-year term expiring at the next annual meeting of stockholders, to serve until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation or removal.

In addition, the Amended and Restated Certificate (i) provides that the Company’s directors will be removable by stockholders with or without cause from and after the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders in 2026; and (ii) deletes certain obsolete provisions in the Amended and Restated Certificate relating to the prior equity ownership of the Company’s former equity sponsor, Seidler Equity Partners III, L.P. and its affiliates.
