In July of 2017, the Company announced that its board of directors has approved a proposed rights offering to raise gross proceeds of up to $34,000. The rights offering is proposed to be made through the pro rata distribution of non-transferable subscription rights to purchase, in the aggregate, up to a potential 34,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a subscription price of $1.00 per share, to shareholders and certain warrant holders of the Company on the record date of August 10, 2017. Each holder of shares of common stock as of the record date will receive, at no charge, one subscription right for each share of common stock owned on the record date, and certain holders of warrants issued by the Company on the record date will receive subscription rights pursuant to the terms of the warrants. Each holder of subscription rights will have a basic subscription right to purchase its pro rata portion of the shares of common stock offered in the proposed rights offering. The proposed rights offering will also include an over-subscription right, which will entitle a rights holder who exercises all of its basic subscription right in full the opportunity to purchase additional shares of common stock up to the amount of its basic subscription right, subject to the availability and pro rata allocation of shares among rights holders exercising their over-subscription right.
Puissance Capital Management (“Puissance”), pursuant to a purchase agreement entered into between Puissance and the Company, has committed to purchase, at the subscription price of $1.00 per share, any unsubscribed shares of common stock following exercise of the basic subscription right, provided that the number of shares purchased by Puissance is subject to a cap such that Puissance will not own more than 40% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock following the proposed rights offering. The shares of common stock to be sold to Puissance pursuant to the purchase agreement will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The Company has agreed, subject to certain terms and conditions, to file a registration statement under the Securities Act covering the resale of the securities to be sold to Puissance pursuant to the purchase agreement. The Company is planning to commence the proposed rights offering in August of 2017.
The proposed rights offering will be made pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Reg. No. 333-218517) on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
On July 17, 2017, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Angel Pond Capital LLC (“Angel Pond”), an entity affiliated with Puissance. Angel Pond will assist the Company with strategic positioning in the Asia Pacific region, including the introduction to potential strategic and capital partner(s) and the development of strategic partnership(s) for the sale and manufacture of the Company’s products in that market. The Company will pay Angel Pond retainer and success fees of a minimum of $2,000 subject to the satisfaction of certain milestones, including the successful establishment of joint venture partnership(s) in the Asia Pacific region.
On August 4, 2017, the Company entered into Warrant Repurchase and Amendment Agreements (the “Amendment Agreements”) with all of the holders (collectively, the “Holders”) of the Company’s warrants (the “2017 Warrants”) issued pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated April 2, 2017 among the Company and the purchasers identified on the signature pages thereto (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company and the Holders agreed to amend the Purchase Agreement to remove the prohibition on the Company effecting a variable rate transaction and to clarify that the distribution of rights pro rata to all record holders of the Company’s common stock would be an exempt issuance not subject to certain rights of the purchasers under the Purchase Agreement, and provided for a mutual release of prior claims. In addition, the Company agreed to repurchase the 2017 Warrants from each Holder for $1.23 per share, subject to such Holder exercising at least their basic subscription right in the Company’s proposed rights offering, and to permit each Holder to use all or a portion of the consideration received pursuant to the Amendment Agreements to pay the subscription price for the exercise of their subscription rights in the rights offering. The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Amendment Agreements is expected to occur simultaneously with the closing of the rights offering, subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions.
