10. Subsequent Event
On May 10, 2017 the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with three accredited investors, to purchase up to $3.0 million of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock Financing”). Concurrently with the Preferred Stock Financing, the Company entered into a Note Purchase Agreement with Intrexon Corporation (“Intrexon”) pursuant to which the Company issued a $2.4 million unsecured non-convertible promissory note to Intrexon and amended the first milestone in its oral mucositis Exclusive Channel Collaboration Agreement (“ECC”) with Intrexon.
The Preferred Stock Financing
The sale of the Preferred Stock will take place in two separate closings and at the first closing which occurred on May 10, 2017, the Company received gross proceeds of approximately $1.302 million. Upon the successful completion of the second closing the Company would receive $1.698 million, the balance of the Preferred Stock Financing. The full $3.0 million of Preferred Stock will be convertible into twelve million shares of the Company’s Common Stock, based on a fixed conversion price of $0.25 per share on an as-converted basis. In addition, the Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,621,037 shares of Common Stock at the first closing and will be obligated to issue additional warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,024,124 shares of Common Stock at the second closing. The Warrants have a term of seven years from the date of issuance are non-exercisable until 6 months after issuance, and have an exercise price of $0.31 per share.
The second closing is contingent upon us receiving shareholder approval required by the NYSE MKT listing rules. The Company entered into voting agreements with the Koski Family Limited Partnership and Intrexon Corporation, holders of a majority of our common stock, pursuant to which they have agreed to vote all of their shares of common stock for approval. Proceeds from the Preferred Stock Financing (including the exercise of any warrants for cash) will be used for general corporate purposes, including working capital
In connection with the Preferred Financing, the Company filed a Certificate of Designations of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Preferred Stock with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida, to be effective May 10, 2017. The number of shares of Preferred Stock designated as Series A Preferred Stock is 12,000,000.
In connection with the issuance and sale of the Preferred Stock and Warrants, the Company granted certain demand registration rights and piggyback registration rights with respect to the shares of the company’s Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock and exercise of the Warrants, pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement.
Except as otherwise provided herein or as otherwise required by law, the Series A Preferred Stock shall have no voting rights. However, as long as any shares of Series A Preferred Stock are outstanding, the Company shall not, without the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock, (a) alter or change adversely the powers, preferences or rights given to the Series A Preferred Stock or alter or amend the Certificate of Designation, (b) amend its articles of incorporation or other charter documents in any manner that adversely affects any rights of the holders of Series A Preferred Stock, (c) increase the number of authorized shares of Series A Preferred Stock, or (d) enter into any agreement with respect to any of the foregoing. Upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary that is not a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Certificate of Designation), the holders of Series A Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive out of the assets, the greater of (i) the product of the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock then held by such holder, multiplied by the Original Issue Price; and (ii) the amount that would be payable to such holder in the Liquidation in respect of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock if all outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock were converted into Common Stock immediately prior to the Liquidation.
The Intrexon Debt Financing and ECC Amendment
The Intrexon Note matures in two (2) years and has a simple interest rate of 12% per annum. Proceeds from the Intrexon Note will be used to fund the Company’s AG013 research and clinical trials. In addition to, and as part of the Intrexon Note, the Company and Intrexon agreed to amend the first milestone payment on the ECC from a $2.0 million payment upon first dosing of a patient to a $3.0 million payment upon the earlier of (a) dosing of the last patient, in a phase II clinical trial, and (b) the twenty four (24) month anniversary of the dosing of the first patient in the phase II clinical trial. Simultaneously with the amendment to the ECC a similar amendment was put in place with respect to the Company’s Stock Issuance Agreement with Intrexon reflecting the milestone amendment.
As we transform to a clinical stage company, the allocation of our limited capital resources and the effective use of available cash remains a primary focus of management. In connection therewith, eight lab employees supporting aspects of our lantibiotic research were let go with three lead senior scientists remaining as the Company seeks to employ external vendors dedicated to progressing the clinical development of our lantibiotic candidates under the leadership and oversight of our senior scientists including our Senior Vice President of Discovery Research, Dr. Martin Handfield. We plan to utilize external vendors dedicated to progressing the clinical development of our lantibiotic candidate. We expect to continue the preclinical studies on OG716, subject to sufficient capital being obtained, toward the goal of filing an IND by year end 2017.
