Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to the Underwriters, in a firm commitment underwritten public offering, 10,769,231 shares (the “Firm Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), at a price to the public of $3.25 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. In addition, pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 1,615,384 shares of Common Stock (the “Additional Shares,” together with the Firm Shares, the “Shares”). The transactions contemplated by the Underwriting Agreement are expected to close on June 15, 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
Cantor Fitzgerald & Co. is acting as sole book-running manager for the offering. Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. is acting as lead manager for the offering.
The gross proceeds to the Company are expected to be approximately $35 million, assuming no exercise of the option to purchase Additional Shares and excluding underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering-related expenses.
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), other obligations of the parties and termination provisions.
The offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s effective “shelf” registration statements on Form S-3 (File Nos. 333-226175 and 333-233350) (the “Registration Statements”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and declared effective by the SEC on July 27, 2018 and September 30, 2019, respectively, as supplemented by a preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on June 10, 2020 and a final prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on June 12, 2020, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act.
Alston & Bird LLP, counsel to the Company, delivered an opinion as to the validity of the Shares, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 5.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
This Current Report on Form 8-K is being filed to incorporate the Underwriting Agreement and opinion by reference into such Registration Statements. The foregoing summary description of the offering and the documentation related thereto, including without limitation, the Underwriting Agreement, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such Exhibits.
The Underwriting Agreement has been included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Underwriting Agreement. The representations and warranties may have been made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors are not third-party beneficiaries under the Underwriting Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Underwriting Agreement, and this subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
