Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 9, 2017, Biocept, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Common Stock and Warrant Purchase Agreement with Ally Bridge LB Healthcare Master Fund Limited (the “Purchase Agreement”), to which the Company sold for an aggregate price of $2.2 million, 1,466,667 shares of its common stock (the “Shares”) and warrants to purchase up to 1,434,639 additional shares of common stock (the “Warrants”) at a combined offering price of $1.50 per unit (the “Private Placement”). The Warrants are immediately exercisable, have an exercise price of $1.50 per share, will expire on August 9, 2022 and may be exercised for cash or, if the current market price of our common stock is greater than the per share exercise price, by surrender of a portion of the Warrants in a cashless exercise. Subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, the Private Placement is expected to close on or about August 10, 2017.

Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to file, within 10 days after the closing of the Private Placement, a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to register for resale the Shares and the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants, which registration statement is required under the Purchase Agreement to become effective no later than 30 days following the closing (or 90 days following the closing if the Securities and Exchange Commission reviews and has written comments to the registration statement). The Company will bear all expenses of such registration of the resale of the Shares and the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants.

The Purchase Agreement includes representations, warranties, covenants and closing conditions customary for transactions of this type. The securities issued in the Private Placement will be sold to the exemption provided by Section4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Regulation D promulgated thereunder.

The foregoing is a summary of the terms of the Purchase Agreement and the Warrants. The summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement and the Warrants, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and 4.1, respectively.
