Although the Purchase Agreement is dated January 9, 2019, the Purchase Price was paid in cash by Geneva to the Company on January 15, 2019 and the transaction closed on that date. After payment of transaction-related expenses, net proceeds to the Company from the sale and issuance of the Series C Preferred Stock totaled $50,000.00. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Preferred Stock for general working capital purposes.
to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company shall reserve 16,901,408 shares of its authorized and unissued common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), free from preemptive rights, to provide for the issuance of Common Stock upon the full conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock held by Geneva (the “Reserved Amount”).
Geneva may not convert the Series C Preferred Stock to the extent that such conversion would result in beneficial ownership by Geneva and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock of the Company.
The Purchase Agreement contains certain representations, warranties, covenants and events of default. The Closing occurred following the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.
