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

At the 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Cardica, Inc. ("Cardica") held on November 13, 2013 (the "Annual Meeting"), Cardica's stockholders, upon the recommendation of Cardica's Board of Directors (the "Board"), approved an amendment and restatement of the Cardica, Inc. 2005 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2005 Plan") to increase the number of shares of Cardica's Common Stock, par value $0.001 (the "Common Stock"), authorized for issuance under the 2005 Plan by 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock and to increase the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance pursuant to the exercise of incentive stock option awards (the "2013 Amendment").

The 2005 Plan, which provides for the grant of incentive stock options, nonstatutory stock options, stock purchase awards, stock bonus awards, stock appreciation rights, stock unit awards and other forms of equity compensation that may be granted to Cardica's employees, non-employee directors and consultants, was initially adopted by the Board on October 13, 2005, and approved by Cardica's stockholders on December 27, 2005, and has been amended six times prior to 2013. The 2013 Amendment was adopted by the Board subject to stockholder approval. A more complete description of the 2005 Plan may be found in Cardica's definitive proxy statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 8, 2013 (the "Proxy Statement"). That summary and the foregoing description are qualified in their entirety by reference to the text of the 2005 Plan, as amended, which is attached to the Proxy Statement and incorporated into this Item 5.02 by reference.
