xG Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:XGTI) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01
On August 15, 2017, xG Technology, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a placement agency agreement (the “Placement Agency Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp. (the “Placement Agent”) under which the Placement Agent agreed to serve as the sole placement agent, on a “reasonable best efforts” basis, in connection with the registered direct public offering (the “Registered Direct Offering”) of an aggregate of 1,560,978 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Shares”). Also on August 15, 2017, to effect the Registered Direct Offering, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors named in the pages thereto (the “Purchasers”) under which we agreed to issue and sell the Shares directly to the Purchasers. The Shares are being offered at a price of $2.05 per share.
In a concurrent private placement (the “Private Placement”; together with the Registered Direct Offering, the “Offering”), we are also selling to the Purchasers, for no additional consideration, a warrant (each a “Warrant” and collectively, the “Warrants”) to purchase 0.50 of a share of Common Stock for each Share purchased for cash in the Offering. The Warrants will be exercisable immediately on the date of issuance (the “Initial Exercise Date”), at an exercise price of $2.50 per share and will expire on the fifth anniversary of the Initial Exercise Date.
The Company expects the Offering to close on or about August 18, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions in the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Company and the Purchasers and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties.
The Placement Agency Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by us and customary conditions to closing. The Placement Agency Agreement provides that the Company will indemnify the Placement Agent against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or reimburse the Placement Agent for payments that the Placement Agent may be required to make because of such liabilities. Additionally, under the Placement Agency Agreement the Company agreed not to contract to issue or announce the issuance or proposed issuance of any Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents for ninety (90) days following the closing of the Offering.
The Placement Agent did not purchase or sell any securities, nor is it required to arrange the purchase or sale of any minimum number or dollar amount of securities. The Placement Agent agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to arrange for the sale of all of the Shares and Warrants being issued and sold in the Offering. The Placement Agent will be paid a cash fee (the “Placement Fee”) in an aggregate amount equal to 7% of the gross cash proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the Shares in the Offering. In addition to the Placement Fee to be paid by the Company, the Company has agreed to reimburse the Placement Agent at the closing non-accountable expense allowance in the aggregate amount of 1% of the gross proceeds in the Offering and for its out-of-pocket expenses, including fees of counsel to the Placement Agent, subject to compliance with FINRA Rule 5110(f)(2)(D). The Company estimates the total expenses of this Offering, which will be payable by us, excluding the Placement Agent fee, will be approximately $100,000.
The Shares will be issued to a prospectus supplement to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-197820), which was initially filed with SEC on August 1, 2014, and was declared effective on August 21, 2014. The Company expects to file the prospectus supplement for the Registered Direct Offering on or about August 17, 2017.
The Warrants and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants (the “Warrant Shares”), are not being registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to the registration statement of which the aforementioned prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus form a part and are not being offered to aforementioned prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus. The Warrants are being offered to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The Warrants are not and will not be listed for trading on any national securities exchange. The Placement Agent is acting as the sole placement agent for the offer and sale of the Warrants
