CytoDyn Inc. (OTCMKTS:CYDY) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01.
On January31, 2018, CytoDyn Inc. (the “Company”) entered into Subscription Agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with certain investors who owned convertible promissory notes of the Company (the “Convertible Notes”) for the sale by the Company of 12,062,728 shares (the “Common Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”). The investors in the Offering also received warrants to purchase 7,718,010 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”). The securities were sold at a combined purchase price of $0.50 per share of Common Stock and related Warrants, allocated as described below, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $6.0million.
The Convertible Notes matured on January31, 2018, upon which date the Company became obligated to pay the principal amount of approximately $6.0 million on the Convertible Notes, plus accrued but unpaid interest of approximately $0.3million, for aggregate payment obligations at maturity of approximately $6.3million. The Common Shares and Warrants were issued in full satisfaction of approximately $6.0million of such payment obligations, with one holder of an aggregate of approximately $0.3million electing to be repaid in cash instead of participating in the Offering. As a result, all of the proceeds from the Offering were used to satisfy the Company’s payment obligations to the Convertible Notes.
The Warrants will be exercisable for a period of five years commencing on their issuance date, at an exercise price equal to $0.75 per share of Common Stock, subject to certain ownership limitations and adjustments as provided under the terms of the Warrants.
The number of shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrant issued to each investor was calculated as the difference between (x)the number of shares of Common Stock issued to each investor in this Offering in respect of the payment obligations relating solely to principal amounts on the Convertible Notes and (y)the number of shares of Common Stock underlying certain warrants originally issued to such investor in the original Convertible Notes offering. The effect was to bring each investor from 50% warrant coverage in the original offering of Convertible Notes, assuming conversion of the principal amount thereof at an original conversion price of $0.75 per share, to 50% warrant coverage after this Offering, assuming reinvestment of the principal amount on the Convertible Notes at $0.50 per share.
The Company is delivering the securities under the Subscription Agreements on or about January31, 2018. The securities sold in the Offering were offered to an effective shelf registration statement on FormS-3, which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August26, 2016 and was subsequently declared effective on September9, 2016 (File No.333-213349) (the “Registration Statement”), and the base prospectus dated as of September9, 2016 contained therein. The Company is filing a prospectus supplement with the SEC in connection with the sale of the securities.
The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Subscription Agreements were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Subscription Agreements. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i)are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Subscription Agreements and not as statements of fact, and (ii)may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders of, or other investors in, the Company. Accordingly, the forms of the Subscription Agreements are included with this filing only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of transaction, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Stockholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Subscription Agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.
Paulson Investment Company, LLC (the “Placement Agent”) was engaged as a placement agent in the Offering, in exchange for a cash fee of approximately $164,000, in respect of investors purchasing an aggregate of 6,840,192 shares of Common Stock and related Warrants in this Offering whose participation was induced by the Placement Agent and not the Company.
