SECTION 5.    Corporate Governance and Management

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On January 23, 2013, the Board of Directors of New Energy Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) granted stock options to each of the members of the Company’s Board of Directors, Jatinder Bhogal, John Conklin, Alastair Livesey, and Joseph Sierchio to purchase up to 40,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. All options have an exercise price of $1.65, the closing price of the Company’s common stock as quoted on the OTC Markets Group QB tier on January 23, 2013. The stock options vest as follows:

(a)           As to 20,000 shares, at any time from January 23, 2013 through January 22, 2023; and
(b)           As to 20,000 shares, at any time from January 23, 2014 through January 22, 2023.
The original Form 8-K regarding the grant of these options, filed by the Company on January 28, 2013, inadvertently left off Mr. Conklin’s name.
