Private Placement of Convertible Notes and Warrants

 

On February 27, 2019, RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “ Company ”) completed a private placement of convertible notes (the “ Notes ”) with nine accredited investors (each, an “ Investor ,” collectively, the “ Investors ”), raising an aggregate of $1,300,000 in gross proceeds, that will be payable in two tranches -- $650,000 received within two days of closing of the financing on February 27, 2019 and $650,000 to be received upon enrollment of the first patient into the trial anticipated in the first quarter of 2019.   The Notes were issued pursuant to a Convertible Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “ Security Purchase Agreement ”), between the Company and the Investors.

 

Convertible Promissory Notes and Warrants.   The key terms of the Notes are summarized below.  The Notes will pay interest at a rate of 5% per annum, mature 60 months after their date of issuance and are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $0.12 per share (subject to adjustment as described in the Notes) at any time prior to repayment, at the election of the Investor.  In the aggregate, the Notes are initially convertible into up to 10,833,333 shares of our common stock.  In connection with the issuance of the Notes, the Investors also received warrants to purchase 8,125,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.18 per share.

 

At any time prior to maturity of the Notes, with the consent of the holders of a majority in interest of the Notes, we may prepay the outstanding principal amount of the Notes plus unpaid accrued interest without penalty.  Upon the commission of any act of bankruptcy by the Company, the execution by the Company of a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, the filing by or against the Company of a petition in bankruptcy or any petition for relief under the federal bankruptcy act or the continuation of such petition without dismissal for a period of 90 days or more, or the appointment of a receiver or trustee to take possession of the property or assets of the Company, the outstanding principal and all accrued interest on the Notes will accelerate and automatically become immediately due and payable.

 

Investors . The Investors in the offering included our President, Chief Executive Officer and director, JJ Finkelstein, and four other members of the board of directors of the Company, Allan L. Goldstein, the Company’s Chairman and chief scientific officer, Joseph C. McNay, Don Elsey and Mauro Bove. The principal amounts of their respective Notes are as set forth below:

 

Investor Note Principal
Joseph C. McNay $25,000
Allan L. Goldstein $5,000
J.J. Finkelstein $25,000
Don Elsey $5,000
Mauro Bove $10,000

 

Use of Proceeds.    Based on current estimates, we anticipate that our existing financial resources, including the net proceeds from this offering, will be adequate to continue to conduct our business over the next 12 months.  We will need to raise additional capital prior to the maturity date to repay the Notes and to continue operating our business.

 

Securities Act Exemption.   The offering was exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in accordance with Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder as an offering made solely to “accredited investors” as defined under the Securities Act.  The Company obtained representations and warranties from the Investors in the Security Purchase Agreement to support the Company’s reliance on this exemption.

 

 

 

 

Item 3.03 Material Modification of Rights of Security Holders.

 

On March 2, 2018, the Company entered into a warrant reprice and exercise and issuance agreement (the “ Reprice Agreement ”) with Sabby Healthcare Master Fund, Ltd., and Sabby Volatility Warrant Master Fund, Ltd. (collectively, “ March 2018 Investor ”). In connection with the Reprice Agreement, the Company issued to the March 2018 Investor warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock (the “ March Warrants ”). The exercise price under the March Warrants is subject to a limited anti-dilution provision, such that in the event the Company makes an issuance of common stock (subject to customary exceptions) at a price per share less than the applicable exercise price of the March Warrants, the exercise price of the March Warrants will be reduced to the price per share applicable to such new issuance but will not adjust to an exercise price below $0.125.  As a result of the issuance of the Notes and Warrants described in Item 3.02 above, the exercise price of the March Warrants was adjusted to $0.125 per share. 

 

Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On February 27, 2019 the Company issued a press release announcing its entry into the Reprice Agreement. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

RegeneRx Closes $1.3 Million Convertible Debt Financing

 

Funding for Operations Over Next 12 Months During Phase 3 Ophthalmic Trials

 

ROCKVILLE, Md. (February 27, 2019) – RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: RGRX) (“the Company” or “RegeneRx”), a clinical-stage drug development company focused on tissue protection, repair and regeneration, today announced that it has completed a $1.3 million convertible debt financing. The funds will be used for operations over the next approximately 12 months while a phase 3 dry eye trial (ARISE-3), phase 3 neurotrophic keratitis trial (SEER-1), and epidermolysis bullosa open study are being conducted by its partner and licensee.

 

The Company will receive $1.3 million in two tranches – $650,000 received within two days of closing of the financing on February 27, 2019 and $650,000 to be received upon enrollment of the first patient into the trial expected in the first quarter of 2019. The 5-year unregistered convertible notes carry a 5% simple interest rate that accrues during the term. The note is convertible into 10,833,333 of RGRX common stock at $0.12 per share. As part of the transaction, the note holders received 8,125,000 warrants to purchase RGRX common stock at a price of $0.18 per share. There were no brokerage fees associated with this transaction.

 

“This recent financing demonstrates continued support from our affiliates, strategic partners, management and board of directors and provides RegeneRx with essential funding while three important clinical trials are being conducted over the next twelve months,” stated J.J. Finkelstein, president and chief executive officer of RegeneRx. “We strongly believe in the potential of our drug candidates, which address large, rapidly growing markets and small orphan markets where better products are desperately needed and are diligently moving forward toward the goal of marketing approvals in the U.S. and abroad.”

 

The securities offered in the private placement have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities law. Unless the shares, warrants and shares underlying the warrants are registered, they may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.
