On May 16, 2018, Cesca Therapeutics Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), announced the pricing of a public offering (the "Offering") of an aggregate of 6,475,001 units (the "Units") and 2,691,666 pre-funded units (the “Pre-Funded Units”) for a purchase price of $0.60 per unit, resulting in aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $5.5 million. Each Unit consists of one share of the Company's common stock, par value $0.001 per share ("Common Stock"), and one common warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock, and each Pre-Funded Unit consists of one pre-funded warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock and one common warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock.
In connection with the Offering, the Company entered into aSecurities Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with certain of the investors in the Offering. The Pre-Funded Units were sold to purchasers whose purchase of Units in the Offering would otherwise result in the purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties, beneficially owning more than 4.99% (or at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%) of the outstanding Common Stock immediately following the consummation of the Offering. Each pre-funded warrant contained in a Pre-Funded Unit will be immediately exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.01 per share and will remain exercisable until exercised in full.
The common warrants included in the Units and the Pre-Funded Units will be immediately exercisable at a price of $0.60 per share of Common Stock, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances, and will expire five years from the date of issuance. The shares of Common Stock or pre-funded warrants included in the Pre-Funded Units, as the case may be, and the common warrants were offered together, but the securities contained in the Units or Pre-Funded Units will be issued separately.
A registration statement on Form S-1 relating to the Offering (File Nos. 333-224185 and 333-224984) was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 16, 2018. The Offering is being made only by means of a prospectus forming a part of the effective registration statements.
The Purchase Agreement contains representations, warranties, indemnification and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature. Under the Purchase Agreements, the Company is prohibited, for a period of ninety (90) days after the closing, from effecting or entering into an agreement to issue Common Stock or any other securities that are at any time convertible into, or exercisable or exchangeable for, or otherwise entitle the holder thereof to receive, Common Stock.
The net proceeds to the Company from the Offering are expected to be approximately $4.8 million, after deducting estimated placement agent's fees and expenses and estimated Offering expenses and excluding any proceeds that may be received upon exercise of the common warrants. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital and to pay accrued but unpaid interest of approximately $657,000 under the Company’s revolving line of credit.
The Company has agreed to pay the placement agent, H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (the "Placement Agent"), a placement agent fee equal to eight percent (8%) of the aggregate gross proceeds to the Company from the sale of the securities in the Offering. In addition, the Company has agreed to reimburse the Placement Agent for Offering expenses in the non-accountable sum of $25,000 and for legal fees and expenses in an amount up to $75,000, subject to compliance with FINRA Rule 5110(f)(2)(D)(i).
