Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On January 6, 2021, BTCS Inc. (the “Company”) received $1,100,000 in funds from Messrs. David Garrity a director, and Charles Allen and Michal Handerhan, executive officers and directors of the Company to the subscription agreements entered into with them on January 1, 2021 and issued to them 1,100,000 shares of the Company’s Series C-2 Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C-2”). The material terms of the Series C-2 are summarized as follows:
Redemption and Stockholder Approval: Under the terms of the Series C-2, the Company shall call a special meeting of stockholders within 180 days of the initial issuance date seeking stockholder ratification of the issuance of the Series C-2. If the ratification of the issuance is not approved prior to the twelve-month anniversary of the initial issuance date (the “Vote Deadline”), the Series C-2 will be redeemed at a price equal to 107% of (i) the stated value per share, or $1.07 per share, plus (ii) all unpaid dividends thereon. If the Company has filed a proxy with the Securities and Exchange Commission prior to the Vote Deadline and is unable to conduct a vote prior to the Vote Deadline then the Vote Deadline will be extended until such time as the vote is conducted. The Series C-2 will not be entitled to vote on the ratification.
Conversion: Each share of Series C-2 is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, beginning on the two-year anniversary of the initial issuance date at a per-share conversion rate determined by dividing the stated value by $0.17, subject to anti-dilution adjustment provisions described below, if applicable. Further, the Series C-2 automatically converts into shares of common stock upon the earlier of: (i) the four-year anniversary of the initial issuance date, and (ii) the Company’s common stock being listed on a national securities exchange.
Ranking: The Series C-2 ranks senior to the Company’s common stock, and to all other classes and series of equity securities of the Company which by their terms do not rank pari passu or senior to the Series C-2. The Series C-2 is subordinate to and ranks junior to all indebtedness of the Company. The holders of the Series C-2 are entitled to receive dividends or distributions on each share of Series C-2 on an as converted basis.
Voting Rights: If the issuance of the Series C-2 is ratified by the stockholders of the Company, each share of Series C-2 shall vote on an as converted basis with the common stock or other equity securities of the Company on a two vote per one share of common stock basis. The common stock into which the Series C-2 is convertible shall, when issued, have all the same voting rights as other issued and outstanding common stock of the Company.
Anti-Dilution Adjustment: If at any time after the initial issuance date, the Company raises capital equal to or in excess of $5 million by issuing common stock or common stock equivalents, then the following amount will be added to the numerator of the per-share conversion formula: the product of: (i) 0.000002, and (ii) the aggregate amount of all capital raised by the Company after the initial issuance date, subject to a $13 million cap.
The sale of the Series C-2 was exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 to Section 4(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D thereof.
The foregoing description of the Series C-2 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in their entirety by reference to the provisions of such Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series C-2 (the “Certificate of Designation”), which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this report.
