Patent and Know-How License Agreement

On November 20, 2019, BioSig Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a patent and know-how license agreement (the “EP Software Agreement”) with Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (“Mayo”).  The EP Software Agreement grants to the Company an exclusive worldwide license, with the right to sublicense, within the field of electrophysiology software and under certain patent rights as described in the EP Software Agreement  (the “Patent Rights”), to make, have made, use, offer for sale, sell and import licensed products and a non-exclusive license to the Company to use the research and development information, materials, technical data, unpatented inventions, trade secrets, know-how and supportive information of Mayo to develop, make, have made, use, offer for sale, sell, and import licensed products. The EP Software Agreement will expire upon the later of either (a) the expiration of the Patent Rights or (b) the 10th anniversary of the date of the first commercial sale of a licensed product, unless earlier terminated by Mayo for the Company’s failure to cure a material breach of the EP Software Agreement, the Company’s or a sublicensee’s commencement of any action or proceedings against Mayo or its affiliates other than for an uncured material breach of the EP Software Agreement by Mayo, or insolvency of the Company.

In connection with the EP Software Agreement, the Company issued to Mayo an 8-year warrant (the “EP Software Warrant”) to purchase 284,455 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $6.16.  The EP Software Warrant is immediately exercisable and may be exercised on a cashless basis if there is no effective registration statement registering or a current prospectus available for the resale of the shares underlying the EP Software Warrant. The Company agreed to pay Mayo an upfront consideration of $25,000.  The Company also agreed to make earned royalty payments to Mayo in connection with the Company’s sales of the licensed products to third parties and sublicense income received by the Company and to make milestone payments of up to $625,000 in aggregate.

On November 20, 2019, the Company entered into an amended and restated patent and know-how license agreement (the “Tools Agreement”) with Mayo. The Tools Agreement contains terms of license grant substantially identical to the EP Software Agreement, although it is for different patent rights and covers the field of electrophysiology systems.

In connection with the Tools Agreement, the Company issued to Mayo an 8-year warrant (the “Tools Warrant”) to purchase 284,455 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $6.16.  The Tools Warrant is immediately exercisable and may be exercised on a cashless basis if there is no effective registration statement registering or a current prospectus available for the resale of the shares underlying the Tools Warrant.

NeuroClear Patent and Know-How License Agreement

On November 20, 2019, the Company’s majority-owned subsidiary, NeuroClear Technologies, Inc. (“NeuroClear”), entered into a patent and know-how license agreement (the “NeuroClear Agreement”) with Mayo.  The NeuroClear Agreement contains terms of license grant substantially identical to the EP Software Agreement and the Tools Agreement, although it is for different patent rights and covers the field of stimulation and electroporation for hypotension/syncope management, renal and non-renal denervation for hypertension treatment, and for use in treatment of arrhythmias in the autonomic nervous system.

In connection with the NeuroClear Agreement, NeuroClear issued to Mayo an 8-year warrant (the “NeuroClear Warrant”) to purchase 473,772 shares of NeuroClear’s common stock at an exercise price of $5.00 per share.  The NeuroClear Warrant is immediately exercisable and may be exercised on a cashless basis if there is no effective registration statement registering or a current prospectus available for the resale of the shares underlying the NeuroClear Warrant. NeuroClear agreed to pay Mayo an upfront consideration of $50,000.  NeuroClear also agreed to make earned royalty payments to Mayo in connection with NeuroClear’s sales of the licensed products to third parties and sublicense income received by the Company and to make milestone payments of up to $700,000 in aggregate.
