On August 4, 2017, Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an at market issuance sales agreement (the “At Market Issuance Sales Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co. LLC, FBR Capital Markets & Co., and MLV & Co. LLC (the “Distribution Agents”), to which the Company may offer and sell from time to time up to an aggregate of $150,000,000 of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Placement Shares”), through the Distribution Agents.
The Placement Shares have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) to the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-208760) (the “Registration Statement”), which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on December 23, 2015 and declared effective by the SEC on February 3, 2016, the base prospectus contained within the Registration Statement, and a prospectus supplement that was filed with the SEC on August 4, 2017.
Sales of the Placement Shares, if any, to the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement, may be made in sales deemed to be “at the market offerings" as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act. Each Distribution Agent will act as sales agent and will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell on the Company’s behalf all of the Placement Shares requested to be sold by the Company, consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between each Distribution Agent and the Company.
The Company has no obligation to sell any of the Placement Shares under the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement, and may at any time suspend offers under the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement or terminate the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including, without limitation, sales and marketing activities, clinical development, making acquisitions of assets, businesses, companies or securities, capital expenditures and for working capital needs. While the Company does not currently intend to do so, it may, subject to market conditions, use a portion of the proceeds toward the 2.75% December 2018 convertible notes.
The At Market Issuance Sales Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, as well as indemnification obligations of the Company for certain liabilities under the Securities Act.
Under the terms of the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement, the Company will pay each Distribution Agent a commission up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from each sale of Placement Shares sold through it under the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement. In addition, the Company has agreed to pay certain expenses incurred by the Distribution Agents in connection with the offering.
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.
