(c) On June 27, 2012, John J. Micek was appointed to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of Enova Systems, Inc. ("Enova") in addition to his current service as a director and as Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary of Enova.

Mr. Micek, age 59, was re-appointed to Enova's Board of Directors (the "Board') in 2007 and was appointed as Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary of the Company effective January 1, 2011. He previously served on the Board between April 1999 and July 2005. From 2000 to 2010, Mr. Micek was Managing Director of Silicon Prairie Partners, LP, a Palo Alto, California based family-owned venture fund. Since April 2010, Mr. Micek has been Managing Partner of Verdant Ventures, a merchant bank dedicated to sourcing and funding University and corporate lab spinouts in areas including cleantech and pharma. He also is admitted to practice law in California and his prior practice focused on financial services. Currently, Mr. Micek actively serves on the Board of Directors of Armanino Foods of Distinction, Innovaro Corporation and JAL/Universal Assurors. Additionally, he currently is an adjunct faculty professor in Corporate Governance and Ethics at the graduate school of Economics at the University of San Francisco. Mr. Micek was on the Board of Directors of Universal Warranty Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of GMACI, from 2000-2003.

On July 3, 2012, in connection with his appointment as President and Chief Executive Officer, Enova agreed to grant to Mr. Micek a stock option exercisable for three years from the date of grant to purchase 4,400,000 shares of Enova's common stock. However, the grant of such option was made conditional upon shareholder approval of an amendment to the the 2006 Equity Compensation Plan to increase the number of shares covered thereby. Such option will only become exercisable as follows: as to 50% of the shares covered thereby upon the Board of Directors approving and Enova entering into a letter of intent or similar agreement contemplating a sale of Enova and, as to the remaining 50% of the shares covered thereby, upon consummation of a sale of Enova. Enova also established certain incentive bonus awards for Mr. Micek, the payments of which are dependent upon the settlement of certain account receivables and account payables.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
