Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On October 25, 2021, Golden Matrix Group, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors (the “Purchasers”) for the sale by the Company in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”) of an aggregate of 496,429 shares of common stock of the Company (the “Shares”), together with warrants to purchase 496,429 shares of common stock (the “Warrants”), at $7.00 per combined Share and Warrant, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $3.475 million, before deducting the placement agent fees and related offering expenses. The Offering is expected to close on October 27, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

 

We currently intend to use the net proceeds from the offering, if any, for general corporate purposes and working capital. We may also use all or a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to fund possible investments in, or acquisitions of, complementary businesses or assets, but we currently have no agreements or commitments with respect to any investment or acquisition.

 

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and agreements of the Company and the Purchasers, and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties. Under the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed not to issue, enter into any agreement to issue or announce the issuance or proposed issuance of any shares of the Company’s common stock or common stock equivalents for a period of 60 days from the closing of the Offering, other than certain exempt issuances including, but not limited to, securities issued pursuant to the Company’s equity compensation plans and for strategic acquisitions (subject to certain customary requirements). Additionally, each of the officers and directors of the Company pursuant to lock-up agreements (the “Lock-Up Agreements”) agreed not to sell or transfer any of the Company securities which they hold, subject to certain exceptions, during the 60-day period following the closing of the Offering.

 

EF Hutton, division of Benchmark Investments, LLC agreed to act as placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) on a “reasonable best efforts” basis, in connection with the Offering. The Company entered into a Placement Agency Agreement, dated as of October 25, 2021, by and between the Company and the Placement Agent (the “Placement Agency Agreement”). Pursuant to the Placement Agency Agreement, the Placement Agent will receive an aggregate cash fee of 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, a non-accountable expense reimbursement of 1% of the gross proceeds in the Offering, the reimbursement of certain of the Placement Agent’s expenses not to exceed $60,000, and the reimbursement of certain other expenses, in the event the Offering closes.

 

The Shares, Warrants and shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, are registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, on the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-260044), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on October 5, 2021, which was declared effective by the Commission on October 15, 2021, and the base prospectus contained therein (the “Registration Statement”), and a prospectus supplement forming a part of the effective Registration Statement, dated October 25, 2021, which was filed with the Commission on October 27, 2021. The prospectus supplement relating to the Offering is available on the SEC’s web site at http://www.sec.gov.

    

The Warrants sold in the Offering will have a term of three years, and an exercise price of $8.63 per share (subject to customary adjustments for stock splits, dividends and recapitalizations), the closing sales price of the Company’s common stock on October 22, 2021, the last trading day prior to the date that the Purchase Agreement was entered into. The Warrants will provide that they may be exercised on a ‘cashless exercise’ basis if, at any time of exercise, there is no effective registration statement registering, or no current prospectus available for, the issuance or resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The exercise of the Warrants will be subject to a beneficial ownership limitation, which will prohibit the exercise thereof, if upon such exercise the holder of the Warrants, its affiliates and any other persons or entities acting as a group together with the holder or any of the holder’s affiliates would hold 4.99% (or, upon election of a purchaser prior to the issuance of any shares, 9.99%) of the number of shares of the common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrant held by the applicable holder, provided that the holders may increase or decrease the beneficial ownership limitation, provided that any increase in beneficial ownership limitation shall not be effective until 61 days following notice to us and in no event shall such beneficial ownership exceed 9.99% and such 61 day period cannot be waived.

The Warrants will also include anti-dilution rights, which will provide that if at any time the Warrants are outstanding, we issue (or announce any offer, sale, grant or any option to purchase or other disposition) or are deemed to have issued (which includes shares issuable upon exercise of warrants and options and conversion of convertible securities) any common stock or common stock equivalents for consideration less than the then current exercise price of the Warrants, the exercise price of such Warrants will be automatically reduced to the lowest price per share of consideration provided or deemed to have been provided for such securities.

 

If we fail for any reason to deliver shares of common stock upon the valid exercise of the Warrants, subject to our receipt of a valid exercise notice and the aggregate exercise price, by the time period set forth in the Warrants, we are required to pay the applicable holder, in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $5,000 of shares subject to such exercise (as calculated in the Warrant), $10 per trading day (increasing to $20 per trading day on the seventh trading day after such liquidated damages begin to accrue) for each trading day that such shares are not delivered. The Warrants will also include customary buy-in rights in the event we fail to deliver shares of common stock upon exercise thereof within the time periods set forth in the Warrant.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Purchase Agreement, the Placement Agency Agreement, the Warrants and the lock-up agreements, are not complete and are qualified in their entireties by reference to the full text of the form of Purchase Agreement, Placement Agency Agreement, form of Common Stock Purchase Warrants and the form of Lock Up Agreements, copies of which are filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1, Exhibit 10.2, Exhibit 4.1 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.
