Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 29, 2019, OncoSec Medical Incorporated (the “Company”), entered into a common stock purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Aspire Capital Fund, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company (“Aspire Capital”) which provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions and limitations set forth therein, Aspire Capital is committed to purchase up to an aggregate of $20 million of shares of the Company’s common stock at the Company’s request from time to time during a 30-month period. Upon execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to Aspire Capital 4,006,731 shares of common stock at-market price of $0.50 per share for proceeds of $2,000,000. The Company has filed with the SEC a prospectus supplement to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-213036) registering all of the shares of common stock that may be offered to Aspire Capital from time to time.
Under the Purchase agreement, on any trading day selected by the Company, the Company has the right, in its sole discretion, to present Aspire Capital with a purchase notice (each, a “Purchase Notice”), directing Aspire Capital (as principal) to purchase up to 300,000 shares of the Company’s common stock per business day, up to $20 million of the Company’s common stock in the aggregate at a per share price (the “Purchase Price”) equal to the lesser of:
|●||the lowest sale price of the Company’s common stock on the purchase date; or|
|●||the arithmetic average of the three (3) lowest closing sale prices for the Company’s common stock during the ten (10) consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately preceding the purchase date.|
The Company and Aspire Capital also may mutually agree to increase the number of shares that may be sold to as much as an additional 2,000,000 shares per business day.
There are no trading volume requirements or restrictions under the Purchase Agreement, and the Company will control the timing and amount of sales of the Company’s common stock to Aspire Capital. Aspire Capital has no right to require any sales by the Company, but is obligated to make purchases from the Company as directed by the Company in accordance with the Purchase Agreement. There are no limitations on use of proceeds, financial or business covenants, restrictions on future financing transactions, rights of first refusal, participation rights, penalties or liquidated damages in the Purchase Agreement. In consideration for entering into the Purchase Agreement, concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company issued to Aspire Capital 1,202,019 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Commitment Shares”) which represents 3% of the aggregate commitment. The Purchase Agreement may be terminated by the Company at any time, at its discretion, without any cost to the Company. Aspire Capital has agreed that neither it nor any of its agents, representatives and affiliates will engage in any direct or indirect short-selling or hedging of the Company’s common stock during any time prior to the termination of the Purchase Agreement. Any proceeds from the Company receives under the Purchase Agreement are expected to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
