Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


On September 3, 2019, Veritas Farms issued a press release announcing that it had completed a $15.4 million private placement (the “Private Offering”) to fund continued expansion. A copy of the Company’s press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


In the Private Offering, which was completed effective July 31, 2019, the Company sold and issued an aggregate of 38,574,950 shares of its common stock (“Shares”) at an offering price of $0.40 per Share, for aggregate proceeds of $15,429,980. The Shares were sold and issued to a group of “accredited investors,” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Within ninety (90) days after completion of the Offering the Company must file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a registration statement under the Securities Act, covering the resale of the Shares issued and sold in the Offering.

WestPark Capital, Inc., a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, acted as the Veritas Farms’ exclusive placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) for the Private Offering. The Placement Agent was paid (a) a commission equal to 10% of the aggregate offering price of Shares sold in the Private Offering; and (b) a non-accountable expense allowance equal to 3% of the aggregate offering price of Shares sold in the Private Offering. In addition, the Placement Agent will receive a seven-year warrant to purchase a number of Shares equal to 10% of the total Shares sold in the Private Offering, with an exercise price of $0.40 per Share. The Company has also paid the Placement Agent (a) a $20,0000 non-refundable retainer for agreeing to act as placement agent for the Private Offering; and (b) $10,000 for the Placement Agent’s legal fees.


The Shares offered and sold in the Private Offering were issued and sold pursuant to the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506(c) of Regulation D thereunder.
