As previously announced, on March 31, 2023, Cyclerion Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Peter M. Hecht, Ph.D., the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board, for him to make an equity investment in the Company of $5,000,000 in cash for shares of common stock (“Common Stock”) and nonvoting Series A convertible preferred stock (“Series A Preferred Stock”) of the Company at a price of $8.68 per share (after giving effect to the 1-for-20 reverse stock split the Company implemented on May 15, 2023). On May 19, 2023, the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement were consummated, and the Company issued to Dr. Hecht 225,000 shares of Common Stock and 351,037 shares of Series A Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred Stock may be converted to Common Stock on a one-for-one basis at the option of the holder thereof.
