Entry into Material Definitive Agreements

 

On September 15, 2021, Molecular Data Inc. (the “Company”) and certain institutional investors (the “Purchasers”) entered into that certain securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to such Purchasers: (i) 23,390,000 Common Units (the “Common Units”), each Common Unit consisting of one American Depositary Share (the “ADSs”) and one warrant to purchase one ADS with an exercise price of $0.38 per ADS (the “Purchase Warrants”) at a price of $0.38 per Common Unit, and (ii) 16,083,684 Pre-Funded Units (the “Pre-Funded Units”), each Pre-Funded Unit consisting of one Pre-Funded Warrant with an exercise price of $0.0001 per ADS, and one Purchase Warrant, at a price of $0.3799 per Pre-Funded Unit, in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”), for gross proceeds of approximately $15 million (the “Offering”) before deducting the placement agent’s fees and other estimated offering expenses.

 

The Purchase Warrants will be exercisable immediately upon the date of issuance and have an exercise price of $0.38 per ADS. The Purchase Warrants will expire 5 years from the date of issuance. The purchase price for each Common Unit is $0.38 and the purchase price for each Pre-Funded Unit is $0.3799. Each Warrant is subject to anti-dilution provisions to reflect stock dividends and splits or other similar transactions. In the event of a Fundamental Transaction, as described in the Warrants, holders of the Pre-funded Warrants will be entitled to receive the same kind and amount of securities, cash or property which the holders would have received had they exercised their Pre-funded Warrants immediately prior to such fundamental transaction. Subject to limited exceptions, a holder of Warrants will not have the right to exercise any portion of its Warrants if the holder (together with such holder’s affiliates, and any persons acting as a group together with such holder or any of such holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own a number of ADSs in excess of 4.99% (or, at the election of the purchaser prior to the date of issuance, 9.99%) of the ADSs then outstanding after giving effect to such exercise.

 

Under the Purchase Agreement, we will be precluded from engaging in equity or equity-linked securities offerings for a period of beginning on the closing date and continuing until six (6) months following the date of the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain exceptions set forth therein.

 

The Company currently intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and capital expenditure purposes. The Offering is expected to close on September 17, 2021.

 

The Company also entered into a placement agency agreement dated September 15, 2021 (the “Placement Agency Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp., as exclusive placement agent (the “Placement Agent”), pursuant to which the Placement Agent agreed to act as the placement agent in connection with the Offering. The Company agreed to pay the Placement Agent an aggregate fee equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the Offering and a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 1.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the offering.

  

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the officers and directors of the Company entered into lock-up agreements pursuant to which these persons have agreed that they will not, for a period of six months following the closing of the Offering, subject to certain exceptions, offer, sell or otherwise dispose of (or enter into any transaction which is designed to, or might reasonably be expected to, result in the disposition, whether by actual disposition or effective economic disposition due to cash settlement or otherwise) or transfer any securities of the Company owned by them as of the date of the closing of the Offering or acquired during such lock-up period.
