Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
Amendment to Terms of Series A Preferred Stock
On October 31, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Amendment”). Prior to the filing of the Amendment, the Company’s Series A convertible preferred stock, par value $0.001 (“Series A preferred stock”), was convertible into shares of common stock. Following the filing of the Amendment, the Series A preferred stock will only be convertible into common stock following such time as the Company’s stockholders have approved an amended and restated certificate of incorporation that authorizes at least 125 million shares of common stock. Unless and until such an approval is received, the Series A preferred stock will no longer be convertible into common stock. Except for the changes to the conversion feature of the Series A preferred stock, the rights, preferences and privileges of the Series A preferred stock remain unchanged.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1.
Designation of Series C Preferred Stock
On October 31, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, designating 8,586 shares of Series C convertible preferred stock (the “Series C preferred stock”). The Series C preferred stock does not carry a specified dividend, but participates with the common stock with respect to the payment of any dividends. In the event of any liquidation, dissolution, winding up or change in control of the Company, the holders of Series C preferred stock shall be entitled to receive, prior and in preference to the common stock, an amount per share equal to the par value of such share plus any declared but unpaid dividends thereon. Each share of Series C preferred stock is initially optionally convertible into 2,500 shares of Common Stock, subject to customary adjustments for dilutive issuances, stock splits and the like. The Series C preferred stock is additionally subject to mandatory conversion upon the occurrence of specified events. In general, the Series C preferred stock is not entitled to vote on any matter presented to the Company’s stockholders. The Series C preferred stock is, however, entitled to a separate class vote on (1) amendments or modifications of the Company’s certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other securities adverse to the Series C preferred stock or (2) the authorization of additional shares of Series C preferred stock.
The foregoing description of the Series C preferred stock does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
On November 1, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the closing of an $11.5 million public offering of Series C preferred stock, common stock and warrants to purchase common stock underwritten by Ladenburg Thalmann and Co., Inc.
