10. STOCK OFFERINGS

  

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 $25.0 million through Cowen as its sales agent. As of March 31, 2019, the Company issued 4,464,777 shares from this facility for proceeds of approximately $8.7 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 contain 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 the then existing exercise price of the warrants, 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.

  

On August 9, 2018, the Company entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with National Securities Corporation (the “Underwriter”), relating to the public offering and sale (the “2018 Offering”) of 9,000,000 shares of our Common Stock at a price per share of $1.15 for aggregate gross proceeds of $10.4 million. This offering closed on August 13, 2018.  Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriter a 45-day option to purchase from the Company up to an additional 1,350,000 shares of Common Stock at the offering price to cover over allotments, if any. On August 14, 2018, the Underwriter exercised its over-allotment option and acquired an additional 1,288,800 shares of Common Stock at a price per share of $1.15 for aggregate gross proceeds of $1.4 million. The over-allotment closing occurred on August 14, 2018. The Company used the net proceeds from this offering for working capital, general corporate purposes and repayment of debt and other obligations.

   

Commencing February 11, 2019, the Company entered into and closed Subscription Agreements with accredited investors (the “February 2019 Accredited Investors”) pursuant to which the February 2019 Accredited Investors purchased 1,499,684 shares of the Company’s common stock for a purchase price of $1,365,000. If, prior to the six month anniversary, the Company issues shares of its common stock for a purchase price per share less than the purchase price paid by the February 2019 Accredited Investors subject to standard carve-outs (a “Down Round”), the Company will issue additional shares of common stock (for no additional consideration) to the February 2019 Accredited Investors such that the effective purchase price per share is equal to the purchase price per share paid in the Down Round. Benjamin Samuels and Gerald Budde, directors of the Company, acquired 841,928 and 26,310 shares of common stock, respectively, as part of this offering, provided, however, their per share purchase was $0.9501, which was above the closing price the date prior to close and they did not receive the Down Round protection.
