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

(a) As anticipated and as disclosed in the prospectus related to the initial public offering of shares of common stock (the "IPO") by Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. (the "Company"), Mr. Alan Crane resigned from the Company's board of directors effective as of July 30, 2014 immediately prior to the closing of the IPO. Mr. Crane's resignation was not related to any disagreements with the Company on any matters relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices. As also disclosed in the prospectus related to the IPO, Mr. Crane's resignation was preceded by the appointment and election of Mr. Bruce Peacock to the Company's board of directors in July 2014 prior to the IPO.



Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On July 30, 2014, the Company filed a restated certificate of incorporation (the "Restated Certificate") with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in connection with the closing of its IPO. The Company's board of directors and stockholders previously approved the Restated Certificate to be filed in connection with, and to be effective upon, the closing of the IPO.

The Restated Certificate amends and restates in its entirety the Company's certificate of incorporation to, among other things: (i) authorize 100,000,000 shares of common stock; (ii) eliminate all references to the previously existing series of preferred stock; (iii) authorize 5,000,000 shares of undesignated preferred stock that may be issued from time to time by the Company's board of directors in one or more series; (iv) establish a classified board of directors, divided into three classes with staggered three-year terms, with one class of directors to be elected at each annual meeting of the Company's stockholders;
(v) provide that the authorized number of directors may be changed only by the resolution of the Company's board of directors; (vi) provide that directors may be removed from office only for cause and only upon the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 75% of the votes that all of the Company's stockholders would be entitled to cast in an election of directors; (vii) provide that any vacancy on the Company's board of directors, including a vacancy resulting from an enlargement of the board of directors, may be filled only by vote of a majority of the directors then in office; and (viii) eliminate the ability of the Company's stockholders to take action by written consent in lieu of a meeting and call special meetings of stockholders.

The foregoing description of the Restated Certificate is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Restated Certificate, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On July 30, 2014, in connection with the closing of the IPO, the amended and restated by-laws of the Company (the "Amended and Restated By-laws"), which were previously approved by the Company's board of directors and stockholders, became effective upon the closing of the IPO. The Amended and Restated By-laws restate the Company's by-laws in their entirety to, among other things: (i) eliminate the ability of the Company's stockholders to take action by written consent in lieu of a meeting and call special meetings of stockholders; (ii) establish procedures relating to the presentation of stockholder proposals at stockholder meetings; (iii) establish procedures relating to the nomination of directors; and (iv) conform to the provisions of the Restated Certificate.

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated By-laws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated By-laws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
