Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 27, 2017, ULURU Inc. (the Company) entered into a
Note, Warrant and Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the
Purchase Agreement) with Velocitas Partners, LLC and an
affiliated entity (Velocitas”) under which the Company is
expected to receive $3,000,000 in gross proceeds, and may receive
proceeds of up to $6,000,000, in two closings scheduled to occur
prior to the end of March 2017 (the Financing).
The first closing, which occurred on February 27, 2017, included
the purchase by Velocitas at face value of a $500,000 Secured
Convertible Promissory Note (the Initial Note) with the Initial
Note accruing interest at 12.5% per annum and having a term of
two years (subject to acceleration under certain circumstances).
The Initial Note is convertible into shares of common stock at a
conversion price of $0.04 per share, subject to equitable
adjustments. The Initial Note is secured by all of the assets of
the Company and its subsidiaries to a Security Agreement executed
at the initial closing.
The Purchase Agreement anticipates a second closing occurring
within 30 days of the initial closing, subject to conditions
precedent described therein. The Purchase Agreement provides
that, at the second closing, (a) Velocitas shall purchase at face
value an additional $500,000 Secured Convertible Note on terms
similar to the Initial Note (the Second Note), and (b) one or
more affiliates of Velocitas will purchase Series B Convertible
Preferred Stock of the Company for net proceeds of not less than
$2,000,000 nor more than $5,000,000, with such dollar amount to
be designated by the purchasers prior to the second closing, at
an as-converted-to-common stock purchase price of $0.04 per share
(the Equity Offering).
The Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, if and when created and
issued in connection with the second closing, will (a) vote
together with the common stock as a single class (subject to
standard protective provisions for the Series B Convertible
Preferred Stock), (b) have the same dividend rights as the Common
Stock, (c) have a liquidation preference equal to the greater of
its purchase price and its as converted-to-common stock value,
and (d) automatically convert into common stock if the number of
authorized shares of common stock is increased within 190 days of
the second closing as necessary to permit all outstanding
convertible or exercisable securities (including the Series B
Convertible Preferred Stock) to convert to common stock.
As a condition and incentive for the financing, the Company has
agreed to issue to Velocitas at the second closing a warrant to
purchase up to 57,055,057 shares of common stock (the Warrant).
The Warrant has an exercise price of $0.04 per share, a 10-year
term and is subject to cashless exercise. In addition, at the
second closing, the Company has agreed to acquire the Altrazeal
distributor agreements Velocitas has with its sub-distributors in
exchange for the issuance of 13,375,000 shares of common stock
(the Assignment Shares).
If the gross proceeds from the Equity Offering are less than
$4,000,000 (with such deficit being referred to as Proceeds Gap),
the Company is obligated to seek capital, in an amount at least
equal to the Proceeds Gap, from third parties in a private
placement over the next 180 days. Velocitas negotiated with the
Company to establish the $0.04 per share price for the shares of
Common Stock underlying the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock.
After this price negotiation was completed, Bradley J. Sacks,
Chairman of the Board of Directors, was requested to provide a
backstop for the Equity Offering to ensure that the Company
raised sufficient capital to effect its current business plan. If
the Company is unable to raise additional capital at least equal
to the Proceeds Gap from third parties, to a Backstop Agreement,
Mr. Sacks has agreed that he or his affiliates will purchase a
number of shares of common stock, at a price of $0.04 per share
(equal to the price being paid by Velocitas for the shares
underlying the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock), with a
purchase price equal to the Proceeds Gap.
In addition, the Company, Velocitas and certain affiliates signed
a Voting Agreement to which the parties agreed to set the size of
the Board of Directors at six directors, and agreed to vote for
the election to the Board of Directors of four persons designated
by Velocitas (initially to be Anish Shah, Oksana Tiedt, Vaidehi
Shah and Arindam Bose), one director designated by Bradley J.
Sacks and one additional director designated by a major investor
or by the Board of Directors. In addition, the parties to the
voting agreement have agreed to vote in favor of a proposal to
amend the Companys articles of incorporation to increase the
authorized shares as required to permit the conversion of the
Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. The effectiveness of the
voting agreement is conditioned upon the second closing, and any
purchasers of Series B Preferred Stock will join the voting
agreement at that time.
In addition, the Company, Velocitas and certain affiliates
entered into an Investor Rights Agreement that provides the
parties thereto with demand, demand Form S-3 and piggy back
registration rights, Rule 144 information rights, and right of
first offer (or preemptive right) in connection with future sales
of securities by the Company (subject to standard exceptions).
The Investor Rights Agreement includes indemnification
obligations associated with the registration rights. Michael I.
Sacks and Bradley Sacks and affiliates are parties to the
Investor Rights Agreement, in part in exchange for the
termination by certain of such persons and The Punch Trust of a
Registration Rights Agreement dated as of January 31, 2014.
The foregoing summary of the principal terms of certain
agreements and instruments is not complete and is qualified in
its entirety by the actual terms and conditions of that agreement
or instrument, a copy of which the Company is filing herewith or
will be filed in connection with the second closing. The
representations, warranties, and other terms contained in the
Purchase Agreement and other agreements were made solely for the
purposes of such agreement and as of specified dates, were solely
