Section 1 - Registrant’s Business and Operations
 
Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On October 13, 2017, Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Rexahn”), and institutional investors entered into securities purchase agreements (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which Rexahn agreed to sell 3,265,309 shares of its common stock and warrants exercisable for up to 1,632,654 shares of its common stock (exclusive of the Wainwright Warrants described below) in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of $8 million. The shares and warrants are being sold in units, each consisting of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase 0.5 of a share of common stock, at an offering price of $2.45 per unit.  Subject to certain ownership limitations, the warrants will be exercisable beginning six months following issuance and will expire five years from the initial exercise date. The warrants will have an exercise price of $2.85 per share.  The number of shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants and the exercise price of the warrants are adjustable in the event of stock splits, stock dividends, combinations of shares and similar recapitalization transactions.  The Offering is expected to close on or about October 17, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
 
Rexahn also entered into an engagement letter (the “Engagement Letter”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (“Wainwright”) on October 12, 2017, pursuant to which Wainwright agreed to serve as exclusive placement agent for the Offering.  Rexahn has agreed to pay Wainwright an aggregate fee up to 6% of the gross proceeds received in the Offering and pay Wainwright for non-accountable expenses in an amount equal to $30,000.  In connection with the Offering, Rexahn will also issue Wainwright or its designees warrants to purchase approximately 195,919 shares of Rexahn’s common stock (the “Wainwright Warrants”), representing a number of warrants equal to an aggregate of 6% of the number of shares sold in the Offering. The Wainwright Warrants will be substantially on the same terms as the other warrants issued in the Offering, except that the Wainwright Warrants will have an exercise price of $3.06 per share, will be exercisable beginning six months following issuance and will expire on October 13, 2022.
 
The net proceeds to Rexahn from the Offering, after deducting Wainwright’s fees and expenses, Rexahn’s estimated offering expenses, and excluding the proceeds, if any, from the exercise of the warrants issued in the Offering, are expected to be approximately $7.4 million.
 
The shares of common stock, warrants to purchase common stock and shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants and the Wainwright Warrants will be issued pursuant to a prospectus supplement that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with a takedown from Rexahn’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-218285) and the base prospectus dated as of July 11, 2017 contained in such registration statement.
