On May 29, 2019, SMTC Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a backstop agreement (the “Backstop Agreement”) with a current stockholder of the Company (the “Backstop Purchaser”) in connection with the Company’s previously announced offering of subscription rights to the Company’s stockholders and holders of the Company’s outstanding warrants (the “Rights Offering”). Pursuant to Backstop Agreement, in connection with the Rights Offering, the Backstop Purchaser has agreed to exercise its basic subscription privilege in full (the “Backstop Purchaser’s Basic Subscription Privilege”), to exercise its over-subscription privilege (the “Backstop Purchaser’s Over Subscription Privilege”) and, upon the completion of the Rights Offering, to purchase such number of the remaining available shares not otherwise subscribed for pursuant to all other stockholders’ basic subscription privileges and over-subscription privileges equal to $750,000 less the aggregate amount of shares purchased by the Backstop Purchaser pursuant to the Backstop Purchaser’s Basic Subscription Privilege and the Backstop Purchaser’s Over Subscription Privilege.

 

The foregoing description of the Backstop Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Backstop Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
