Item 5.05 Amendments to the Registrant’s Code of Ethics, or Waiver of a Provision of the Code of Ethics
On August 2, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Artivion, Inc. (the “Company”) approved and adopted an amended and restated Code of Conduct (as amended and restated, the “Code”). The Code replaces the previous Code of Conduct adopted by the Board (the “Prior Code”) in its entirety to, among other things, streamline the Code and improve its readability. The Code was approved and adopted by the Board as part of its ordinary course review of the Company’s governance documents, codes, and policies. The Code became effective upon the Board’s approval and adoption.
The Code applies to all officers, employees, and directors of the Company and its subsidiaries and constitutes a “code of ethics” as such term is defined in Item 406(b) of Regulation S-K. Adoption of the Code did not relate to or result in any waiver, whether explicit or implicit, of any provision of the Prior Code.
The foregoing summary of the Code is not intended to be exhaustive and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Code, which is available on the Company’s website at https://investors.artivion.com, under the “Artivion’s Code of Conduct” section of the “Corporate Governance” tab. Information contained which is available on the Company’s website is not incorporated by reference in, or considered part of, this Current Report on Form 8-K.
