On September 29, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with several investors for the issuance and sale (the “Offering”) of 5,500 shares of the Company’s newly designated Series B 10% Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Stock”) at $1,000 per share, for a total purchase price of $5,500,000.In the Offering, the Company raised gross cash proceeds of $2,700,000, and exchanged outstanding indebtedness with a principal amount of $2,800,000.The Offering raised net cash proceeds of approximately $2,400,000 (after deducting the placement agent fee and expenses of the Offering) and resulted in an increase in the Company’s stockholders’ equity of approximately $5,200,000.
With the completion of the Offering on September 29, 2017, the Company believes that it has regained compliance with the Rule and its stockholders’ equity balance is now greater than $2,500,000 as of the quarter ended September 30, 2017 and as of the date of this report.
Nasdaq will continue to monitor the Company’s ongoing compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement and, if at the time of the Company’s next periodic report the Company does not evidence compliance, it may be subject to delisting from Nasdaq.
