FIVE OAKS INVESTMENT CORP. (NYSE:OAKS) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01
On October 13, 2017, Five Oaks Investment Corp. (the “Company”) entered into Equity Distribution Agreements each of with JMP Securities LLC and Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. (each an “Agent” and collectively, the “Agents”), to which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time through the Agent, shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate offering price of up to $50,000,000. The Equity Distribution Agreements relate to a proposed “at-the-market” offering program.
The shares of Common Stock sold in the offering will be issued to a prospectus dated January 17, 2017, and a prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 13, 2017, in connection with one or more offerings of shares from the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-215234) (the “Registration Statement”), which was declared effective on January 17, 2017. Sales of shares of Common Stock through the Agents, if any, will be made in amounts and at times to be determined by the Company from time to time. Under the Equity Distribution Agreements, the Agents have agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to sell shares of Common Stock in agency transactions. The Equity Distribution Agreements provide that the Agents will be entitled to compensation of up to 2% of the gross sales price of the shares sold to the Equity Distribution Agreements or such lower amount as otherwise mutually agreed upon by the Company and the Agents from time to time.
Sales of shares of Common Stock, if any, under the Equity Distribution Agreements may be made in transactions that are deemed to be at-the-market offerings as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including ordinary brokers' transactions on the New York Stock Exchange at market prices, or as otherwise agreed between the Company and the Agents. Neither the Company nor the Agents have an obligation to sell any shares of Common Stock in the offering. The Equity Distribution Agreements may be terminated by the Agents or by the Company at any time, and such termination is effective on the date specified in such notice of termination; provided that such termination shall not be effective until the close of business on the date of receipt of such notice by the Agents or the Company, as the case may be.
The Equity Distribution Agreements contain customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Company and of its external manager, Oak Circle Capital Partners LLC, and customary conditions to completing future sale transactions, indemnification rights and obligations of the parties and termination provisions.
The Equity Distribution Agreements are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Equity Distribution Agreements and the transactions contemplated thereby are qualified in their entirety by reference to Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2.
