MICROBOT MEDICAL INC. (NASDAQ:MBOT) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On January 14, 2019, Microbot Medical Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an accredited institutional investor (the “Purchaser”) providing for the issuance and sale by the Company to the Purchaser of an aggregate of (i) 330,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a purchase price per share of $6.50 and (ii) 125,323 pre-funded warrants (“Pre-Funded Warrants”) to purchase one share of Common Stock, at a purchase price per Pre-Funded Warrant of $6.49 (the “Offering”). The gross proceeds to the Company will be approximately $2,958,346. The closing of the Offering took place on January 15, 2019.
The net proceeds of the Offering to the Company are estimated to be approximately $2.27 million, after deducting placement agent fees and other estimated offering expenses. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this Offering for the continuous development of its SCS device for the treatment of hydrocephalus and NPH; to expand and develop additional applications deriving from its existing IP portfolio, including the potential addition of complementary assets to the CardioSert portfolio either through internal development, in-license or acquisition; and for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
The Pre-Funded Warrants were offered and sold to the Purchaser as its purchase of Shares in the Offering would otherwise result in the Purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties, beneficially owning more than 9.99% of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock immediately following the consummation of this Offering. The Pre-Funded Warrants are immediately exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.01 per Pre-Funded Warrant, subject to adjustment for stock splits, reverse splits, and similar capital transactions as described in the Pre-Funded Warrants. The Pre-Funded Warrants may be exercised at any time until all of the Pre-Funded Warrants are exercised in full.
On October 12, 2018, the Company entered into an engagement letter, as amended (the “Engagement Letter”), with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (“Wainwright”), to which Wainwright agreed to serve as the exclusive placement agent for the issuance and sale of the securities to the Purchase Agreement. As compensation for such placement agent services, the Company has paid Wainwright an aggregate cash fee equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the Shares and Pre-Funded Warrants, plus (a) a management fee equal to 1.0% of the gross proceeds; (b) a non-accountable expense allowance of $25,000 for this Offering, (c) $75,000 for fees and expenses of legal counsel for this Offering and (d) certain other reimbursement amounts payable. The Company has also issued to Wainwright or its designees warrants to purchase up to 5.0% of the aggregate number of Shares and Pre-Funded Warrants sold under the Purchase Agreement (collectively, the “Wainwright Warrant”), or up to 22,767 shares of Common Stock underlying the Wainwright Warrants issued in connection with this Offering. The Wainwright Warrant has a term of 3.5 years, is not exercisable for a period of six month following the issuance, and has an exercise price of $8.125 per share (equal to 125% of the Offering price per share). The Engagement Letter also includes indemnification obligations of the Company and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature.
The Shares and the Pre-Funded Warrants (but not the Wainwright Warrant, or the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Wainwright Warrant) were offered and sold by the Company through a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No.: 333-217076), which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 31, 2017 and declared effective by the SEC on April 14, 2017 and a prospectus supplement relating to the Offering dated January 14, 2019 filed with the SEC.
The Wainwright Warrant and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Wainwright Warrant are being offered and sold without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to the exemption provided in Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act and Regulation D promulgated thereunder and similar exemptions under applicable state laws in reliance on the following facts: no general solicitation was used in offer or sale of such securities; the recipients of the securities had adequate access to information about us, through pre-existing relationships or otherwise; and such securities were issued as restricted securities with restricted legends referring to the Securities Act. No such securities may be offered or sold in the United States in the absence of an effective registration statement or exemption from applicable registration requirements.
The foregoing descriptions of the Pre-Funded Warrants, the Wainwright Warrant, the Purchase Agreement and the Engagement Letter do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the copy of each of the Form of Pre-Funded Warrant, Form of Wainwright Warrant, Form of Purchase Agreement and the Engagement Letter, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2, 10.2, and 10.1, respectively, and which are incorporated herein by reference.

Accordingly, the Purchase Agreement is incorporated herein by reference only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the Purchase Agreement and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company or its business, and should be read in conjunction with the disclosures in the Company’s periodic reports and other filings with the SEC.
