Explanatory Note


BioSig Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report 8-K on February 1, 2024 (the “Original Form 8-K”).


This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A is being filed to correct the statements regarding the consulting agreements in the Original Form 8-K, which have not been executed. No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.


Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities


On January 28, 2024, management of the Company commenced a workforce reduction intended to reduce annual cash burn by approximately 50%, which was completed as of January 31, 2024. The workforce reduction consisted of the departure of sixteen employees, effective as of January 31, 2024 (the “Effective Date”) and included the departure of John Sieckhaus, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, and Gray Fleming, the Company’s Chief Commercial Officer.


In connection with the reduction in force, the Company estimates it will incur total aggregate costs of approximately $713,924, which consists of one-time departure fees and severance packages for employees in equity, based on factors including years of employment, in the estimated amount of $135,288 and retention bonuses paid in equity in the estimated amount of $578,636. These estimates are subject to a number of assumptions, and actual results may differ. The Company may also incur additional costs not currently contemplated due to events that may occur as a result of, or that are associated with, the departures, including estimated cash expenditures of $30,000 and estimated potential consulting fees paid in equity of approximately $200,000.


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


In connection with the workforce reduction discussed in Item 2.05 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, Mr. Sieckhaus and Mr. Fleming, effective as of the Effective Date, are departing from the Company.
