SenesTech, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNES) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01
On June 20, 2018, SenesTech, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Letter Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a certain holder (collectively, the “Holder”) of the Company’s outstanding warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), originally issued on November 21, 2017 (the “Original Warrants”). This transaction provides the Company with $1.6 million in cash to assist it with its execution of its business strategy and additional working capital. Maxim Group LLC acted as placement agent in the transaction.
The form of the Original Warrants was filed as Exhibit 4.2 to a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 17, 2017 (the “Prior 8-K”) and incorporated herein by reference. The resale of the shares issuable upon exercise of the Original Warrants was registered to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-221433), originally filed with the SEC under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) on November 8, 2017, as amended thereto on November 16, 2017, which became effective on November 16, 2017.
to the Agreement, the Company and the Holder agreed that the Holder would exercise its Original Warrant representing 1,133,909 million shares of Common Stock for cash at the $1.50 exercise price for gross proceeds of $1.7 million. The Company would issue to Holder a new warrant (collectively, the “New Warrant”) to purchase 1,133,909 shares of Common Stock, with the New Warrant having similar terms as the Original Warrant, except that, generally, (A) the New Warrant would not contain any price anti-dilution protection (in comparison to the full-ratchet price protection provided in Sections 2(c) – (e) of the Original Warrants), other than standard adjustments in the event of any dividends or distributions on our Common Stock, or any stock split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, (B) the New Warrants would only permit exercise after the six-month anniversary of issuance, and only permit “cashless” or “net” exercise to the extent that there is not an effective registration statement covering the resale by the Holder of the shares of Common Stock underlying the New Warrant and (C) the exercise price of the New Warrant would be $1.82 per share (in comparison to $1.50 per share for the Original Warrants), subject to adjustment as described above. The Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company. In addition, to the Agreement, (A) the Company, subject to certain exceptions, may not issue, enter into any agreement to issue or announce the issuance or proposed issuance of any shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock for a period of five trading days after the date of the Agreement, and (B) if at any time during the six months following the date of the Agreement, the Company enters into a Letter Agreement with any other holder of Original Warrants that is more favorable to the other holder than the Agreement to the Holder, the terms of the Agreement will be automatically adjusted to provide Holder the benefit of the more favorable terms.
Upon execution of the Agreement, the Holder delivered to the Company an irrevocable notice of exercise with respect to its Original Warrant. The Company expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $1.6 million from the exercise of the Original Warrant. After exercise of the Original Warrant by the Holder subject to the Agreement, 3,423,591 shares of Common Stock will be subject to issuance under the remaining Original Warrants.
The foregoing description of the Agreement and the New Warrant is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Agreement and the form of New Warrant, which are filed hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 4.1, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
