GEOVAX LABS, INC. (OTCMKTS:GOVX) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On March 5, 2018, we entered into private placement transaction and executed a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with the purchasers identified therein (collectively, the “Purchasers”) providing for the issuance and sale to the Purchasers of an aggregate of 600 shares of our Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Shares”) for gross proceeds to the Company of $600,000. Each Preferred Share is initially convertible into approximately 12,500 shares of our Common Stock for an aggregate total of 7,500,000 shares of our Common Stock (the “Conversion Shares”). The terms of the Preferred Shares include antidilution provisions. We closed this transaction on March 5, 2018.
The Preferred Shares do not have voting rights except as required by law and are not entitled to a dividend.When issued, the Conversion Shares will have the voting rights afforded to all shares of Common Stock. The Preferred Shares have a liquidation preference equal to the initial purchase price.
to the Certificate of Designation which authorized the Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, the Preferred Shares may be converted at any time at the option of the Purchasers into shares of our Common Stock at a conversion price of $0.08 per share (the “Conversion Price”). The Certificate of Designation contains price adjustment provisions, which may, under certain circumstances reduce the Conversion Price on several future dates according to a formula based on the then-current market price for our common stock
If the parties so agree, then the Company may sell up to an additional 600 shares of its Preferred Shares on the terms identical to those upon which the first 600 shares were sold. In that event, the Company will then also be obligated to issue the purchasers a warrant for up to 50% of the total shares of our Common Stock into which all of the Preferred Shares sold at either time could be converted. The warrant would have an exercise price equal to the then-current conversion price for the Preferred Shares, three-year term, and include a cashless-exercise feature.
The securities sold to the Securities Purchase Agreement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and have been issued under an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act afforded by Section4(2)thereof and Rule506 of Regulation D. The securities may not be offered or sold in the United States in the absence of an effective registration statement or exemption from applicable registration requirements.
