11. Convertible Preferred Stock
On May 10, 2017 the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with three accredited investors, to purchase up to $3,000,000 of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock Financing”). The sale of the preferred stock took place in two separate closings. At the first closing which occurred on May 10, 2017, the Company received gross proceeds of approximately $1.302 million. At the second closing, which occurred on July 25, 2017, the Company received $1.698 million. The full $3,000,000 of preferred stock is 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 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.
On July 27, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement to amend the warrants issued in connection with the Preferred Stock Financing to provide notification and objection requirements with respect to the change of control provisions. The change of control provisions in the warrants had previously caused the warrants to be treated as a derivative liability as opposed to being treated as equity on the Company’s balance sheet. The warrants have been replaced by amended and restated warrants containing such notification and objection requirements (the “Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrants”) so that the Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrants are now treated as equity on the Company’s balance sheet. All other terms of the original warrants remain unchanged by the Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrants.
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 required by law, the Series A Preferred Stock has 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 preferred stock is classified as permanent equity.
