Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On July 31, 2020, NanoViricides, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with B. Riley Securities, Inc. and Kingswood Capital Markets, a division of Benchmark Investments, Inc. (each a “Sales Agent” and collectively, the “Sales Agents”), pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time, through or to the Sales Agents, shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Placement Shares”), having an aggregate offering price of up to $50 million (the “ATM Offering”). Sales pursuant to the Sales Agreement will be made only upon instructions by the Company to the Sales Agents, and the Company cannot provide any assurances that it will issue any Shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement.

 

The issuance and sale, if any, of the Placement Shares by the Company under the Sales Agreement will be made pursuant to the Company’s effective “shelf” registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-237370) (the “Registration Statement”), the base prospectus contained therein, and a prospectus supplement relating to the ATM offering, dated July 31, 2020.

 

Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company may sell the Placement Shares by any method permitted that is deemed an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Each Sales Agent will use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices and applicable state and federal laws, rules and regulations to sell the Placement Shares from time to time, based upon the Company’s instructions (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). Actual sales will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by the Company from time to time, including (among others) market conditions, the trading price of the Company’s Common Stock, capital needs and determinations by the Company of the appropriate sources of funding for the Company. The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Common Stock under the Sales Agreement and the Company cannot provide any assurances that it will issue any shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement. The Company will pay a commission rate of up to 3.5% of the gross sales price per share sold and agreed to reimburse the Sales Agents for certain specified expenses, including the fees and disbursements of its legal counsel in an amount not to exceed $50,000 and have agreed to reimburse the Sales Agents an amount not to exceed $2,500 per quarter during the term of the Sales Agreement for legal fees to be incurred by the Sales Agents. The Company has also agreed pursuant to the Sales Agreement to provide each Sales Agent with customary indemnification and contribution rights.

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

 

The description of the Sales Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy of which is included herewith as Exhibit 1.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The opinion of the Company’s counsel regarding the validity of the shares of Common Stock that will be issued pursuant to the Sales Agreement and the ATM Prospectus Supplement is also filed herewith as Exhibit 5.1.
