Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 27, 2020, Entasis Therapeutics Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with the purchasers named therein (the “Investors”), including existing stockholder Innoviva, Inc. (“Innoviva”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell (i) an aggregate of 8,183,878 shares of common stock (the “Shares”), par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) (ii) warrants to purchase an aggregate of 9,345,794 shares of Common Stock (the “Common Warrants”), with each Share and Common Warrant being issued and sold as a unit, for a per unit price of $2.675, and (iii) pre-funded warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,161,916 shares of Common Stock (the “Pre-Funded Warrants” and, together with the Common Warrants, the “Warrants”), to the Investors for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $25 million (collectively, the “Offering”). The closing of the Offering occurred on September 1, 2020.


Each Common Warrant has an exercise price per share of Common Stock equal to $2.675 per share. Each Pre-Funded Warrant has an exercise price per share of Common Stock equal to $0.001 per share. The exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of each Warrant is subject to appropriate adjustments in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting the Common Stock. In addition, in certain circumstances, upon a fundamental transaction, a holder of Warrants will be entitled to receive, upon exercise of the Warrants, the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property that such holder would have received had they exercised the Warrants immediately prior to the fundamental transaction; provided, however, that in the event of a fundamental transaction where the consideration consists solely of cash, solely of marketable securities or a combination thereof, each Warrant will be deemed to be exercised in full in a cashless exercise effective immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of such fundamental transaction. Each Warrant is exercisable from the date of issuance and has a term of five years.


The Company may not effect the exercise of certain Warrants, and the applicable holder will not be entitled to exercise any portion of any such Warrant, which, upon giving effect to such exercise, would cause the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the holder of such Warrant (together with its affiliates) to exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of such Warrants. However, any holder may increase or decrease such percentage to any other percentage not in excess of 19.99% upon at least 61 days’ prior notice from the holder to the Company subject to the terms of the Warrants.


On September 1, 2020, in connection with the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Investors. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company agreed to prepare and file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) within 45 days after the closing of the Offering for purposes of registering the resale of the Shares, shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, the Warrants and any shares of Common Stock issued as a dividend or other distribution with respect to the Shares or shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to cause this registration statement to be declared effective by the SEC within 90 days after the closing of the Offering (or within 120 days if the SEC reviews the registration statement).


The Company has also agreed, among other things, to indemnify the Investors, their officers, directors, members, employees and agents, successors and assigns under the registration statement from certain liabilities and to pay all fees and expenses (excluding any legal fees of the selling holder(s), and any underwriting discounts and selling commissions) incident to the Company’s obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement.


The foregoing descriptions of the Securities Purchase Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement and Warrants do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2, 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.


Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


The disclosure set forth above under Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference. The Offering was made in reliance on an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Regulation D promulgated thereunder.

On August 28, 2020, the Company issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing the transaction. The full text of the Press Release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
