Underwritten Public Offering

 

On January 21, 2020, NanoViricides, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Underwriting Agreement, we agreed to issue and sell 2,500,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Underwritten Shares”), at a price to the public of $3.00 per share, a 30% discount to the five (5) day average trading price of the common stock. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, we also granted the underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional 375,000 shares of our common stock (together with the Underwritten Shares, the “Shares”) within 45 days after the date of the Underwriting Agreement to cover over-allotments, if any. The Final Prospectus for the offering was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, on January 23, 2020.

 

The offering was consummated on January 25, 2020. The Company sold the Underwritten Shares and the underwriter exercised its option to purchase an additional 375,000 shares of common stock at the public offering price of $3.00 per share. Aegis Capital Corp. acted as sole bookrunner for the offering.

 

The net proceeds to the Company after underwriter's commission and agreed upon customary fees and expenses were approximately $7.78 million, before deducting the Company's legal and accounting expenses related to the Offering. The Company intends to use the net proceeds to fund general corporate purposes and to fund ongoing operations and to repay certain accounts payable to related parties.

 

 

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants made by us.  It also provides for customary indemnification by us and the underwriters for losses or damages arising out of or in connection with the sale of the Shares.  In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, each director and executive officer of our company has entered into an agreement with the representative of the underwriters not to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of our securities, subject to certain exceptions, during the 90-day period following the offering, subject to extension in certain circumstances.

 

A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
