Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On December 20, 2023, (the “Effective Date”), HOOKIPA Pharma Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Amended and Restated Stock Purchase Agreement (the “A&R Stock Purchase Agreement”) with Gilead Sciences, Inc. (“Gilead”), which amends and restates in its entirety the Company’s Stock Purchase Agreement, dated February 15, 2022, with Gilead, pursuant to which Gilead had purchased $5.0 million of the Company’s Common Stock and committed to purchase an additional $30.0 million. Pursuant to, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement, on the Effective Date, Gilead purchased 15,000,000 unregistered shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) for approximately $21.25 million at a purchase price equal to $1.4167 per share of Common Stock. Pursuant to the terms of the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company may require Gilead to purchase the balance of the approximately $8.75 million of Common Stock in up to two subsequent purchases as part of or concurrently with a private placement of the Company’s Common Stock or a public offering of the Company’s Common Stock at the same price paid by other investors in such transactions.

 

The ability of the Company to sell shares of its Common Stock to Gilead are subject to specified limitations, including compliance with Nasdaq Rule 5635(d) and continued compliance with the Nasdaq listing rules. The A&R Stock Purchase Agreement also prohibits Gilead from purchasing shares of Common Stock if such purchase would result in Gilead being a beneficial owner of more than 19.9% of the total number of shares of Common Stock then-issued and outstanding.

 

The A&R Stock Purchase Agreement may be terminated: (1) by Gilead (a) any time an Event of Default (as defined in the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement) exists or (b) if HOOKIPA GmbH suspends, terminates or otherwise ceases to perform under the HIV Development Plan; (2) automatically if Gilead exercises its Option pursuant to the Restated Collaboration Agreement between the Company and Gilead; (3) by the Company for any reason; (4) automatically on the date that the Company sells and Gilead purchases the full $30.0 million of Common Stock; (5) automatically upon termination of the Restated Collaboration Agreement; or (6) automatically on December 20, 2025.

 

The Company has agreed to file a registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission registering any resale of the shares of Common Stock sold to Gilead pursuant to the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement. The Company made customary representations, warranties and covenants concerning the Company in the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement and also agreed to indemnify Gilead against certain liabilities.

 

The foregoing is only a brief description of certain terms of the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement that is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

Pursuant to the A&R Stock Purchase Agreement described in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, which description is incorporated herein by reference, the Company issued 15,000,000 shares of Common Stock on the Effective Date to Gilead. Furthermore, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company may issue additional unregistered shares of its Common Stock with an aggregate value of approximately $8.75 million to Gilead as described in Item 1.01.

 

The issuance of the shares of Common Stock to Gilead will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and the Company and Gilead have agreed that the issuance of the Shares will be accomplished in reliance upon Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

EXECUTION VERSION

 

AMENDED AND RESTATED STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT

 

AMENDED AND RESTATED STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT (the “A&R Agreement”), dated as of December 20, 2023 (the “Effective Date”) by and between HOOKIPA PHARMA INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and GILEAD SCIENCES, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Buyer”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein are defined in Section 11 hereof. Company and Buyer are collectively referred to herein as the “Parties” and individually as a “Party.”

 

WHEREAS:

 

On February 15, 2022, Hookipa Biotech GmbH (“HOOKIPA GmbH”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and the Buyer entered into an Amended and Restated Research Collaboration and License Agreement (the “Amended Research Agreement”);

 

Concurrently with the entry by HOOKIPA GmbH and the Buyer into the Amended Research Agreement, the Parties entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement, dated February 15, 2022 (the “Original Agreement”), pursuant to which, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the Buyer agreed, at the Company’s option, to purchase up to $35,000,000 (such aggregate amount, the “Equity Commitment”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) and, on such date, Buyer purchased an initial amount of 1,666,666 shares of the Company’s Common Stock for approximately $5.0 million at a purchase price per share equal to $3.00 (the “2022 Purchase”).

 

The Company and the Buyer are parties to that certain Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of June 17, 2022 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), which provides for certain registration rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable pursuant to the Original Agreement or this A&R Agreement (collectively, the “Shares”).

 

The Company and the Buyer desire to amend and restate the Original Agreement in its entirety as set forth in this A&R Agreement, including to provide that, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this A&R Agreement, the Buyer is required, at the Company’s option, to purchase up to $30,000,000 (such aggregate amount, the “A&R Equity Commitment”) of Common Stock.

 

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements and obligations contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.PURCHASE OF COMMON STOCK.

 

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this A&R Agreement, the Company has the right to sell to the Buyer, and the Buyer has the obligation to purchase from the Company, Shares as follows:

 

(a)            Share Purchase; Commencement of Purchases of Common Stock. On the Effective Date, the Buyer shall purchase from the Company an aggregate of 15,000,000 Shares in exchange for wire transfer to an account designated in writing by the Company of $21,250,500, representing a purchase price per Share equal to $1.4167 (such purchase the “Initial Equity Purchase” and such Shares are referred to herein as “Initial Shares”). Thereafter, the purchase and sale of additional Shares hereunder shall occur from time to time upon delivery of written notices by the Company to the Buyer on the terms and conditions as set forth herein, subject to and following the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Sections 6 and 7 below.

 

 

 

 

(b)            Subsequent Purchases. Subject to the terms and conditions of this A&R Agreement, including without limitation, Sections 1(e) and (f), the Company shall also have the right but not the obligation to direct the Buyer to purchase up to an additional amount of Shares equal to the A&R Equity Commitment less the aggregate Initial Equity Purchase, in up to two additional equity purchases as part of or concurrently with a (i) private placement of the Company’s Common Stock to other investors (a “PIPE”) or (ii) a public offering of the Company’s Common Stock (a “Public Offering”) by the Company’s delivery to the Buyer of a Purchase Notice, and, so long as the terms and conditions set forth in Sections 56 and 7 have been complied with in all respects by the Company, the Buyer thereupon shall have the obligation to buy Shares in the amount of the Subsequent Purchase Amount on the closing date (each, a “Subsequent Purchase Date”) of such Public Offering or PIPE, as applicable (each such subsequent purchase, a “Subsequent Purchase”). At each Subsequent Purchase, if one occurs, the Buyer shall purchase the amount of Shares set forth in the corresponding Subsequent Purchase Notice at a purchase price per share equal to the price of the Common Stock sold to (1) in the case of a PIPE, the other investors in the PIPE or (2) in the case of a Public Offering, the public in the Public Offering (the “Subsequent Purchase Price”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company elects to have the Buyer purchase Shares as part of a Public Offering (in whole or in part), such decision will be subject to a reasonable determination by outside counsel to the Company that Buyer’s purchase of Shares in the Public Offering would not violate applicable securities laws, including the 1933 Act, or applicable market rules or regulations, including any rules of the Principal Market (a “Disqualification Event”). In the event of a Disqualification Event, the Shares shall be purchased at the Public Offering price per share of Common Stock in a concurrent private placement of Shares, to the extent such concurrent private placement will not constitute a Disqualification Event (the “Concurrent Private Placement”). If the purchase of Shares is in a Concurrent Private Placement, the Company and the Buyer shall execute and deliver such documents that are: (i) customary for a transaction structured as a Concurrent Private Placement with a Public Offering, and (ii) reasonably satisfactory to the Company and the Buyer.

 

(c)            Records of Purchases. The Buyer and the Company shall each maintain records showing the remaining Available Amount at any given time and the dates and Subsequent Purchase Amounts for each purchase, or shall use such other method reasonably satisfactory to the Buyer and the Company to reconcile the remaining Available Amount at any time under this A&R Agreement.

 

(d)            Taxes. The Company shall pay any and all transfer, stamp or similar taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of any shares of Common Stock to the Buyer made under this A&R Agreement.

 

(e)            Compliance with Principal Market Rules. Notwithstanding anything in this A&R Agreement to the contrary, and in addition to the limitations set forth in Section 1(b), the total number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued under this A&R Agreement shall be limited to 16,228,567 shares of Common Stock (the “Common Stock Cap”), which equals 19.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock as of the date hereof, unless Company stockholder approval is obtained to issue more than such Common Stock Cap. The 2022 Purchase shall not be included in the number of shares counted towards the Common Stock Cap. The Common Stock Cap shall be appropriately adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction. The foregoing limitation shall not apply if stockholder approval has been obtained or at any time the Common Stock Cap is reached and at all times thereafter if the average price paid for all shares issued under this A&R Agreement is equal to or greater than $0.5579 (the “Minimum Price”),  a price equal to the lower of (i) the Nasdaq Official Closing Price immediately preceding the execution of this A&R Agreement or (ii) the arithmetic average of the five (5) Nasdaq Official Closing Prices for the Common Stock immediately preceding the execution of this A& R Agreement, as calculated in accordance with the rules of the Principal Market (in such circumstance, for purposes of the Principal Market, the transactions contemplated hereby would not be “below market” and the Common Stock Cap would not apply). The Minimum Price shall be appropriately adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction involving the Company and affecting its capital stock. The Company shall not be required or permitted to issue, and the Buyer shall not be required to purchase, any shares of Common Stock under this A&R Agreement if such issuance would breach the Company’s obligations under the rules or regulations of the Principal Market. The Company may, in its sole discretion, determine whether to obtain stockholder approval to issue more than 19.9% of its outstanding shares of Common Stock hereunder if such issuance would require stockholder approval under the rules or regulations of the Principal Market.

(f)            Beneficial Ownership Limitation. Without the consent of the Buyer,  the Company shall not issue, and the Buyer shall not be obligated to purchase any shares of Common Stock under this A&R Agreement, if such shares proposed to be issued and sold, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock then owned beneficially (as calculated pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”) and Rule 13d-3 promulgated thereunder) by the Buyer and its Affiliates would result in beneficial ownership by the Buyer and its Affiliates, collectively, of more than 19.9% of the then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company.

 

2.REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE COMPANY.

 

The Company represents and warrants to the Buyer the following as of the Effective Date and as of each Subsequent Purchase Date:

 

(a)            Private Placement. Neither the Company nor any Person acting on its behalf, has, directly or indirectly, made any offers or sales of any security or solicited any offers to buy any security, under any circumstances that would require registration of the Shares under the 1933 Act. Subject to the accuracy of the representations made by the Buyer in Section 3, the Shares (other than those issued in a Public Offering) will be issued and sold to Buyer in compliance with applicable exemptions from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the 1933 Act and the registration and qualification requirements of all applicable securities laws of the states of the United States. The Company has not engaged any brokers, finders or agents, or incurred, or will incur, directly or indirectly, any liability for brokerage or finder’s fees or agents’ commissions or any similar charges in connection with this A&R Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

(b)            Organization and Qualification. The Company and its Subsidiaries are corporations, limited companies, limited liability companies or other entities duly organized and validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction in which they are incorporated or organized, and have all requisite corporate or equivalent organizational power and authority to own, lease, operate and occupy their properties and to carry on their business as now being conducted. Each of the Company and its Subsidiaries is duly qualified as a foreign corporation, limited company, limited liability company or other business entity to do business and is in good standing in every jurisdiction in which its ownership or lease of property or the nature of the business conducted by it makes such qualification necessary, except to the extent that the failure to be so qualified or be in good standing would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect to the Company or its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole. Hookipa Biotech GmbH is the only “significant subsidiary” of the Company, as such term is defined by Regulation S-X of the 1933 Act.

(vi)            Upon issuance in accordance with the terms and conditions of this A&R Agreement, any and all Shares issued to the Buyer hereunder shall be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and free from all Liens, with Buyer being entitled to all rights accorded to a holder of Common Stock.

As used herein, a “Repayment Event” means any event or condition which gives the holder of any note, debenture or other evidence of indebtedness (or any person acting on such holder’s behalf) the right to require the repurchase, redemption or repayment of all or a portion of such indebtedness by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

 

-5-

 

 

(ii)            Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is (A) in violation of its charter, by-laws or similar organizational document, (B) in default in the performance or observance of any obligation, agreement, covenant or condition contained in the Agreements and Instruments, except for such defaults that would not reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect, or (C) in violation of any law, statute, rule, regulation, judgment, order, writ or decree of any Governmental Entity, except for such violations that would not reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(iii)            Except as specifically contemplated by this A&R Agreement, reporting obligations under the 1934 Act, or as required under the 1933 Act or applicable state securities laws or the filing of a Listing of Additional Shares Notification Form with the Principal Market, the Company is not required to obtain any consent, authorization or order of, or make any filing or registration with, any court or governmental agency or any regulatory or self-regulatory agency in order for it to execute, deliver or perform any of its obligations under or contemplated by this A&R Agreement in accordance with the terms hereof. Except for reporting obligations under the 1934 Act, all consents, authorizations, orders, filings and registrations which the Company is required to obtain pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be obtained or effected on or prior to the Effective Date.

The Company and its Subsidiaries possess such permits, licenses, approvals, consents, approvals, waivers, exemptions, franchises, certificates, orders, registrations and other authorizations (collectively, “Governmental Licenses”) issued by the appropriate Governmental Entities necessary to conduct the business now operated by them (including, without limitation, all such Governmental Licenses required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”), the European Medicines Agency, or any other federal, state, local or foreign agencies or bodies engaged in the regulation of clinical or preclinical studies, pharmaceuticals, biologics or activities related to the business now operated by the Company and its Subsidiaries), except where the failure so to possess would not reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect. The Company and its Subsidiaries are in compliance with the terms and conditions of all Governmental Licenses, except where the failure so to comply would not reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect. All of the Governmental Licenses are valid and in full force and effect, except when the invalidity of such Governmental Licenses or the failure of such Governmental Licenses to be in full force and effect would not reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has received any notice of any Action relating to the revocation or modification of any Governmental Licenses which, individually or in the aggregate, if the subject of an unfavorable decision, ruling or finding, would reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. The Company and its Subsidiaries (i) are, and at all times have been, in compliance with all statutes, rules and regulations applicable to the ownership, testing, development, manufacture, packaging, processing, use, distribution, storage, import, export or disposal of any product manufactured or distributed by the Company or its Subsidiaries (“Applicable Laws”), except where such noncompliance would not, individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect; and (ii) have not received any FDA Form 483, written notice of adverse finding, warning letter, untitled letter or other correspondence or written notice from any court or arbitrator or Governmental Entity alleging or asserting noncompliance with (x) any Applicable Laws or (y) any Governmental License required by any such Applicable Laws, except where being in contravention of any of the foregoing representations or warranties, individually or in the aggregate, would not result in a Material Adverse Effect.

(h)            SEC Reporting. The Common Stock is registered pursuant to Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the 1934 Act. The Company has timely filed all required reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents (including exhibits and all other information incorporated therein), and any required amendments to any of the foregoing, with the SEC (the “Company SEC Documents”). As of their respective filing dates, each of the Company SEC Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements of the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act, and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder, applicable to such Company SEC Document. No Company SEC Document contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  No inquiries or any other investigation conducted by or on behalf of Buyer or its representatives or counsel will modify, amend or affect Buyer’s right to rely on the truth, accuracy and completeness of the Company SEC Documents and the Company’s representations and warranties contained in this A&R Agreement.

 

(i)            Principal Market Rules. The Common Stock of the Company is listed on the Principal Market. Other than the bid price deficiency set forth in the letter received from the Principal Market on August 3, 2023 as disclosed in the Company SEC Documents, the Company is not in violation of the continued listing requirements of the Principal Market and has no knowledge of any facts that would reasonably lead to delisting or suspension of the Common Stock from the Principal Market, or terminating the registration of the Common Stock under the 1934 Act.

(g)            No Governmental Review.

(ii)            any sale of the Shares made in reliance on Rule 144 may be made only in accordance with the terms of Rule 144 and, if Rule 144 is not applicable, any resale of the Shares under circumstances in which the seller (or the person through whom the sale is made) may be deemed to be an underwriter (as that term is defined in the 1933 Act) may require compliance with some other exemption under the 1933 Act or the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder.

 

(b)            Legends. The Buyer understands the Shares (other than Shares issued in a Public Offering) will bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form (and a stop-transfer order may be placed against transfer of the Shares):

HOOKIPA Pharma Announces $21.25 Million Equity Investment from Gilead Sciences

 

·Gilead purchased 15 million newly issued shares of common stock at a price of $1.4167 per share

 

·Following the close of the transaction on December 20, 2023, Gilead holds 19.4% of HOOKIPA’s outstanding shares of common stock

 

·Equity investment is to advance the Gilead-partnered HIV therapeutic program through Phase 1; trial expected to commence in the first half of 2024

 

NEW YORK and VIENNA, December 21, 2023 - HOOKIPA Pharma Inc. (NASDAQ: HOOK, ‘HOOKIPA’), a company developing a new class of immunotherapeutics based on its proprietary arenavirus platform, today announced that Gilead Sciences (‘Gilead’) has purchased 15 million shares of HOOKIPA’s common stock for approximately $21.25 million, at a price of $1.4167 per share.

 

In addition, HOOKIPA has the right, subject to certain terms and conditions, to sell an additional approximately $8.75 million of common stock to Gilead as pro-rata participation in potential future equity raises. The agreement with Gilead replaces the stock purchase agreement that Hookipa entered into with Gilead in 2022.

 

“We have a tremendous partnership with Gilead, who have been incredible believers in our arenavirus platform since our initial collaboration and license agreement began more than five years ago,” said Joern Aldag, Chief Executive Officer at HOOKIPA. “Together, we have made meaningful progress to find a potential functional cure for HIV. Most recently, we received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of our Investigational New Drug application for HB-500 and are excited to begin our Phase 1 trial in the first half of next year. We are excited to continue our relationship with Gilead, and we are collectively optimistic about the potential of our partnership to benefit patients.”

 

The transaction closed on December 20, 2023. Following the completion of the stock purchase, Gilead’s ownership in HOOKIPA increased to 18,759,465 shares, or approximately 19.4% of HOOKIPA’s outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

HB-500 is an alternating, 2-vector arenaviral therapeutic vaccine that is being evaluated as part of a potential curative regimen for HIV. One vector is based on lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) as its arenaviral backbone; another vector is based on Pichinde virus (PICV). Both encode the same HIV antigens. The alternating 2-vector approach is designed to further focus the immune response against the target antigen.

 

HB-500 is one of two separate development programs in HOOKIPA’s collaboration and license agreement with Gilead. HOOKIPA is responsible for advancing the HIV program through the completion of a Phase 1b clinical trial. Gilead has the exclusive right to assume further development of the program thereafter.

 

For further details, refer to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘SEC’) on December 21, 2023.

 

 

 

 

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction. Any offering of the shares of common stock described above under the resale registration statement will only be by means of a prospectus.

 

About HIV

 

HIV is one of the world’s most formidable public health challenges. It is estimated there are more than 38 million people living with HIV worldwide. The virus infects and kills immune cells, and without effective ongoing treatment leaves the individual increasingly immunocompromised over time. While effective treatments have significantly extended the lives of people living with HIV and reduced the transmission of the virus, there is no cure for HIV or AIDS.
