Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On August 21, 2019, Avinger, Inc. (the “Company” or “Avinger”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp., as representative of the underwriters identified therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell 3,813,559 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, at a public offering price of $1.18 per share (the “Offering”). Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, Avinger granted the Underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 572,033 shares of common stock solely to cover over-allotments, if any. Avinger expects to receive approximately $3.9 million in net proceeds from the Offering (excluding the over-allotment option), after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses. The shares are being offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-230124), which was declared effective by the Securities Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 29, 2019, and the base prospectus included therein, as amended and supplemented by the preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on August 21, 2019, and the final prospectus supplement expected to be filed with the SEC on August 22, 2019. The Offering is expected to close on or about August 26, 2019, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

 

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and termination and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature. All of the Company’s executive officers and directors have also agreed not to sell or transfer any securities of the Company held by them for a period of 90 days, from August 21, 2019 subject to limited exceptions.

 

The above description of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached to this report as Exhibit 1.1 and which is incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events.

 

On August 21, 2019, Avinger issued a press release announcing that it had priced the Offering, which press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
