CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Our disclosure and analysis in this Current Report on Form 8-K contains some forward-looking statements. Certain of the matters discussed concerning our operations, cash flows, financial position, economic performance and financial condition, and the effect of economic conditions include forward-looking statements.
Statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions or that include words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar expressions are forward-looking statements. Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, including projections of orders, sales, operating margins, earnings, cash flow, research and development costs, working capital, capital expenditures and other projections, they are subject to several risks and uncertainties.
Investors are cautioned that our forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and the actual results or developments may differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements.
As for the forward-looking statements that relate to future financial results and other projections, actual results will be different due to the inherent uncertainty of estimates, forecasts and projections may be better or worse than projected. Given these uncertainties, you should not place any reliance on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to these forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, after the date of this filing to reflect events or changes in circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events. You are advised, however, to consult any additional disclosures we make in our reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q, Form 8-K, or their successors.
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 3, 2012, StrikeForce Technologies. Inc. (the Company) finalized an equity facility (the Equity Facility) with Auctus Private Equity Fund, LLC, a Massachusetts corporation (Auctus), whereby the parties entered into (i) a drawdown equity financing agreement (the Equity Agreement) and (ii) a registration rights agreement (the Registration Rights Agreement).
Pursuant to the terms of the Equity Agreement, for a period of up to thirty six (36) months commencing on the date of effectiveness of the Registration Statement, Auctus shall commit to purchase up to $6,000,000 of the Companys common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the Shares), pursuant to an Advance Request (as defined in the Equity Agreement) contained in a drawdown notice, covering the Registrable Securities (as defined below).
The Company, at its discretion, but no less than five (5) trading days between a subsequent Drawdown Notice and a prior closing, can request from Auctus a drawdown, which shall not exceed the lesser of: One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($150,000) or the value of two hundred percent (200%) of the average daily volume for the prior ten (10) trading days multiplied by the average of the closing best bid prices for the prior ten (10) trading days. The number of shares delivered to Auctus under each drawdown shall be determined based on the price calculated at ninety percent (90%) of the lowest closing best bid price for the five days following the Clearing Date associated with a Drawdown Notice (subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions defined in the Equity Agreement). Auctus shall immediately cease reselling any Shares within a Pricing Period if the per share price falls below a minimum floor set in such notice by the Company, at its sole discretion, which, as a result, will reduce the amount of the drawdown
Under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has committed to file a Registration Statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission within forty five (45) days of the execution of the Equity Agreement, covering the Registrable Securities (as defined below).
The Registrable Securities include (i) the Shares, in the amount determined by the Company; (ii) the shares of common stock issued pursuant to the origination fee (as disclosed below) and (iii) any securities issued or issuable with respect to the Shares by way of exchange, stock dividend or stock split or in connection with a combination of shares, recapitalization, merger, consolidation or other reorganization or otherwise.
As further consideration for Auctus entering into and structuring the Equity Facility, the Company shall pay to Auctus a non-refundable origination fee equal to the value of $15,000, consisting of $3,000 already paid, $3,000 in a stock or cash combination thirty (30) days after the Form S-1 registration statement is declared effective, and 562,500 shares of common stock already issued, which shares shall be included in the registration statement.
The Company will determine the amount of each drawdown pursuant to the terms, conditions, and limitations specified in the Equity Agreement. Company management intends to use the Equity Facility on an as needed basis for marketing, advertising and growth. No assurances can be provided as to the amount the Company will drawdown, if any.
The above descriptions of the Equity Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the document themselves.
