EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), is filing this registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The proposed maximum aggregate offering price of the common stock and accompanying Series Warrants will be reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis based on the offering price of any pre-funded warrants and accompanying Series Warrants issued in the offering, and the proposed maximum aggregate offering price of the pre-funded warrants and accompanying Series Warrants to be issued in the offering will be reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis based on the offering price of any common stock and accompanying Series Warrants issued in the offering.

 

The additional securities that are being registered for sale have a proposed maximum offering price not to exceed $6,000,000 and are in an amount and at a price that together represent no more than 20% of the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the Calculation of Registration Fee table contained in the Prior Registration Statement.
