Correction to Disclosure Contained in Form 8-K Filed by Energy Focus, Inc. on February 26, 2019
Energy Focus, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 26, 2019 (the “February 26th 8‑K”) in which it reported, among other things, that, the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) had approved certain compensation amounts for the Company’s non-employee directors, including the then new directors, Jennifer Y. Cheng and Geraldine McManus. With respect to such compensation amounts, the February 26th 8-K incorrectly stated that non-employee directors would each receive restricted stock units having an annual grant date value of $33,300 vesting over a one-year period, pro-rated for service of a partial term. The Board had actually only approved an annual grant date value of $30,000 vesting over a one-year period, pro-rated for service of a partial term.
Except as stated above, this Form 8-K/A does not amend or update any of the other information contained in the February 26th 8-K.

Except as stated below, this Form 8-K/A does not amend or update any of the other information contained in the June 28th 8-K.
In connection with the Appointment, on July 16, 2018, Mr. Nestor received an equity award consisting of options to purchase 150,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.42 per share, pursuant to the Company’s 2014 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended.
