Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.


On November 26, 2012, MusclePharm Corporation (the "Company") effected a 1 for 850 reverse stock split of its common stock ("Common Stock") pursuant to the filing of a Certificate of Change with the Nevada Secretary of State (the "Reverse Split"). As a result of the Reverse Split, each 850 shares of Common Stock were automatically combined into one new share of Common Stock, with any fractional shares that would otherwise be issuable as a result of the Reverse Split being rounded up to a whole share. Following the Reverse Split, holders of Common Stock held a total of approximately 2,776,690 shares of Common Stock.


Although the Reverse Split ratably reduced the number of shares of Common Stock the Company was authorized to issue (decreasing from 2.5 billion to approximately 2.9 million), the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State (the "Amendment") to increase the number of shares of its Common Stock it is authorized to issue to 100,000,000 shares, effective November 27, 2012. The $0.001 par value per share of the Company's Common Stock was unchanged in connection with the above actions. Stockholders holding a majority of the Company's voting securities approved the proposals authorizing the Board of Directors, in its discretion, to implement the Reverse Split and file the Amendment.


Trading of the Common Stock on the OTC QB will continue, on a Reverse Split-adjusted basis and its ticker symbol will remain unchanged, although a “D” will be placed on the MSLP ticker symbol (MSLPD) for 20 business days to alert the public about the Reverse Split. The new CUSIP number for the Common Stock following the Reverse Split is 627335201.


Stockholders holding Common Stock certificates will receive a letter of transmittal from the Company's transfer agent, Corporate Stock Transfer, or from their broker with specific instructions regarding the exchange of stock certificates.


The primary objective of the Reverse Split is to increase the per share price of the Common Stock in order to potentially allow the Company to seek a listing of the Common Stock on a more established trading market, including a stock exchange.


The foregoing descriptions of the Reverse Split and the Amendment contained in this Item 3.03 do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Certificate of Change and Certificate of Amendment, respectively, which are filed as Exhibits 3.1 and 3.2 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference
