Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 7, 2019, Dynavax Technologies Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Cowen and Company, LLC and William Blair & Company, L.L.C., as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), relating to the issuance and sale in an underwritten public offering of 18,525,000 shares of common stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), 4,840 shares of newly designated non-voting Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (“Series B Stock”), and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 5,841,250 shares of Common Stock (“Warrants”). Each share of Common Stock is being sold together with a Warrant to purchase 0.25 of a share of Common Stock, at a combined price to the public of $3.00 per share of Common Stock and accompanying Warrant. Each share of Series B Stock is being sold together with Warrants to purchase 250 shares of Common Stock, at a combined price to the public of $3,000.00 per share of Series B Stock and accompanying Warrants. The net proceeds to the Company from the offering are expected to be approximately $65.5 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company and excluding any proceeds that the Company may receive upon exercise of the Warrants. The offering is expected to close on or about August 12, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.

All of the Warrants being sold in the offering will have an exercise price of $4.50 per share of Common Stock, subject to proportional adjustments in the event of stock splits or combinations or similar events. The warrants will be immediately exercisable upon issuance and will expire on the 30-month anniversary of the date of issuance. However, the holder will be prohibited, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Warrants, from exercising Warrants for shares of Common Stock if, as a result of such exercise, the holder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the total number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding, which percentage may be changed at the holders’ election to a higher or lower percentage (not to exceed 19.99%) upon 61 days’ notice to the Company.

The securities to be offered and sold in the offering will be issued pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that automatically became effective upon filing with the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on August 8, 2017 and accompanying prospectus (Registration Statement No.  333-219781) and a prospectus supplement thereunder.

A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit. The foregoing description of the Warrants does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Warrant, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.

A copy of the legal opinion and consent of Cooley LLP relating to the legality of the issuance and sale of the securities in the offerings is attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On August 8, 2019, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designation”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware with respect to the Series B Stock.

The rights, preferences and privileges of the Series B Stock are set forth in the Certificate of Designation. Each share of Series B Stock is convertible into 1,000 shares of Common Stock at the holder’s option. However, the holder will be prohibited, subject to certain exceptions, from converting shares of Series B Stock into shares of Common Stock if, as a result of such conversion, the holder, together with its affiliates and attribution parties, would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the total number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding, which percentage may be changed at the holders’ election to a higher or lower percentage (not to exceed 19.99%) upon 61 days’ notice to the Company. Shares of Series B Stock will generally have no voting rights, except as required by law and except that the consent of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Series B Stock will be required to amend the terms of the Series B Stock or take certain other actions with respect to the Series B Stock. Shares of Series B Stock will be entitled to receive dividends equal to (on an as-if-converted-to -Common Stock basis), and in the same form and manner as, dividends actually paid on shares of Common Stock.

A copy of the Certificate of Designation is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the rights, preferences and privileges of the Series B Stock is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

On August 7, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the commencement of the offering and on August 8, 2019 the Company issued a press release announcing that the Company had priced the offering. Copies of these press releases are attached as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 hereto, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
