Stephen Burns, Benjamin Samuels, Gerald Budde and Julio Rodriguez, executive officers and/or directors of the Company, participated in this offering
On June 22, 2017, the Company entered into an at the market issuance sales agreement (the “Cowen Agreement”) with Cowen and Company, LLC (“Cowen”) under which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time at its sole discretion, shares of its Common Stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $25,000,000 through Cowen as its sales agent. As of June 30, 2018, the Company issued 1,876,489 shares from this facility for proceeds of approximately $5.8 million.
On September 14, 2017, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Cowen relating to the public offering and sale (the “Offering”) of 3,749,996 shares of the Company’s common stock, and five-year warrants (exercisable beginning on the date of issuance) to purchase up to an aggregate of 2,812,497 shares of the Company’s common stock. Each investor received a warrant to purchase 0.75 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $3.80 per share, for each share of common stock purchased.
Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, Cowen purchased 3,749,996 shares of the Company’s common stock and accompanying warrants at a price per share of $3.20. The net proceeds to the Company were approximately $10.9 million after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. The sale of such shares and accompanying warrants closed on September 18, 2017. The warrants contained full ratchet anti-dilution protection upon the issuance of any common stock, securities convertible into common stock or certain other issuances at a price below $3.20, with certain exceptions.
On June 4, 2018, the Company and holders of all outstanding Warrants to Purchase Common Stock of the Company issued September 18, 2017 (collectively, the “Warrants”) entered into separate, privately-negotiated exchange agreements (the “Exchange Agreements”), pursuant to which the Company issued to such holders an aggregate of 1,968,736 shares of the Company’s common stock in exchange for the Warrants. The closing of the exchanges contemplated by the Exchange Agreements occurred on June 5, 2018. In addition, the “Down Round” feature of the Warrants was triggered in the second quarter of 2018, causing the strike price to decrease from $3.80 per share to $2.62 per share. As a result, the Company recorded approximately $765,179 as a deemed dividend which represents the value transferred to the Warrant holders due to the Down Round being triggered. The deemed dividend was recorded as a reduction of Retained Earnings and increase in Additional Paid-in-Capital and reduced net income available to common shareholders by the same amount.
