Overview

 

LiveOne, Inc. (the “Company,” “LXL,” “LiveXLive,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a pioneer in the acquisition, distribution and monetization of live music events, Internet radio, podcasting/vodcasting and music-related subscription, streaming and video content. Through our comprehensive service offerings and innovative content platform, we provide music fans the ability to listen, watch, attend, engage and transact. Serving a global audience, our mission is to bring the experience of live music and entertainment to consumers wherever music and entertainment is watched, listened to, discussed, deliberated or performed around the world.

 

Our operating model is focused on a flywheel concept of integrated services centered on servicing and monetizing superfans through multiple revenue streams and product/service offerings. At December 31, 2021, we operated eight core integrated services: (1) one of the industry’s leading online live music streaming platforms (LiveXLive), (2) a fully integrated subscription and advertising streaming music service Slacker, Inc. (“Slacker”) operating as LiveXLive powered by Slacker, (3) a leading podcasting platform operating as PodcastOne (“PodcastOne”), (4) producer of original music-related content, including live music festivals, concerts and events through React Presents LLC (“React Presents”), (5) a retailer of personalized merchandise and gifts operating as Custom Personalization Solutions, Inc. (“CPS”), (6) a producer of pay-per-view events and offerings operating as PPVOne, Inc. (“PPVOne”), (7) Gramophone Media, Inc., an artist and brand development company which comprises boutique agencies specializing in public relations, music and technology, artists and repertoire, strategic marketing, brand positioning, graphic design, and social media management (“Gramophone”), and (8) effective as of January 2022, a music records label operating as Palm Beach Records (“Palm Beach Records”). LiveXLive is the first ‘live social music network’, delivering premium live-streamed, digital audio and on-demand music experiences from the world’s top music festivals, concerts and events, including Rock in Rio, Electronic Daisy Carnival (“EDC”) Las Vegas, iHeartRadio’s Wango Tango and many more. LiveXLive enhances the experience by granting audiences access to premium original content, artist exclusives and industry interviews. Our LiveXLive application offers users access to live events, audio streams with access to millions of songs and hundreds of expert-curated radio platforms and stations, original episodic content, podcasts, vodcasts, video on demand, real-time livestreams, and social sharing of content. Today, our business is comprised of a single operating segment (hereon referred to as our “operations”).

 

We generate revenue through the sale of subscription-based services and advertising from our music offerings, from the licensing, advertising and sponsorship of our live music and podcast content rights and services, from our expanding pay-per-view offerings, from retail sales of merchandise and gifts and expect to generate revenue from ticket sales as live events return post-COVID 19 pandemic and other revenue streams.

 

Operations

 

We provide services through a dedicated over-the-top application (“LXL App”) called LiveXLive. Our services are delivered through digital streaming transmissions over the Internet and/or through satellite transmissions and may be accessed on users’ desk-top, tablets, mobile devices (iOS, Android), Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire, and through over-the-top (“OTT”), Samsung TV, STIRR, Sling, and XUMO with more service platforms in discussions. Our users can also access our music platform from our websites, including www.livexlive.com and www.slacker.com. Our users may also access our podcasts on www.podcastone.com or our PodcastOne app and acquire merchandise and gifts on www.personalizedplanet.com and www.limogesjewelry.com.

 

Historically, we acquired the rights to stream our live and recorded music and broadcasts from a combination of festival owners and promoters, such as Anschutz Entertainment Group (“AEG”) and Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (“Live Nation”), music labels, including Universal Music, Warner Music and Sony Music, and through individual music publishers and rights holders. In March 2019, we entered into a multi-year agreement with iHeartMedia that combines content, production, distribution and promotion, which was further extended in March 2020, giving us exclusive global livestreaming rights to over 20 of their events per year. Beginning mid-March 2020, the current pandemic associated with COVID-19 temporarily shut down the production of all on-ground, live music festivals and events. As a result, we pivoted our production to 100% streaming, and began producing, curating, and broadcasting streaming music festivals, concerts and events across our platform. In May 2020, we launched our first pay-per-view (“PPV”) performances across our platform, allowing artists and fans to access a new digital compliment to live festivals, concerts and events.

 

P-1

 

 

The majority of our content acquisition agreements provide us the exclusive rights to produce, license, broadcast and distribute live broadcast streams of these festivals and events throughout the world and across any digital platform, including cable, Internet, video, audio, video-on-demand (“VOD”) and virtual reality (“VR”). As of December 31, 2021, we held the streaming rights to over 13 festivals and live music events under long-term contracts that range from two to seven years in duration. Today, we have increased these live streaming festival rights and are working to expand our VOD, PPV, content catalog and content capabilities.

 

Since 2018, we launched LiveZone, a traveling studio originating from live music events and festivals all over the world. LiveZone combines music news, commentary, festival updates and artist interviews, and provide context to premiere events by showcasing exotic locales, unique venues, and artist backstories, adding “pre-show” and “post-show” segments to livestreamed artist performances and original festival-based content. During fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, we launched our own franchises including “Music Lives,” our multi-artist virtual festival, “Music Lives ON,” our weekly series of virtual live-streaming performances, and “The Lockdown Awards”, our award show celebrating the best in quarantine content.

  

In February 2020, we acquired React Presents, giving us the capability to produce and stream over 200 events annually, including React Presents’ tent pole festival Spring Awakening. In July 2020, we entered the podcasting business with the acquisition of PodcastOne and in December 2020, we entered the merchandising business with the acquisition of CPS. During the quarter ending March 31, 2022, we intend to continue our efforts to implement our announced spin-out of our existing pay-per-view business as a separate public company and our plan to distribute a portion of the new company’s equity to our common stockholders, subject to obtaining applicable approvals and consents and compliance with applicable rules and regulations and public market trading and listing requirements. In October 2021, we acquired Gramophone, entering artist and brand development business. Effective as of January 2022, we acquired Palm Beach Records further enhancing our music records label business.

 

During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, we livestreamed 146 major music festivals and live music events and generated approximately 150 million views worldwide, and as of December 31, 2021, our subscription service eclipsed 1.3 million paid subscribers across our audio services. Included in the total number as of December 31, 2021 are certain subscribers which are the subject of a contractual dispute. We are currently not recognizing revenue related to these subscribers.

 

Live Music Events

 

We produce, edit, curate and stream live music events through (i) broadband transmission over the Internet and/or satellite networks to our users throughout the world, where permitted (“Digital Live Events”) both advertiser supported and PPV events, and (ii) physical ticket sales of on-location music events and festivals at a variety of indoor clubs and outdoor venues and arenas (“On-premise Live Events”). These services allow our users to access live music content in person and over the Internet, including the ability to chat and communicate over our platform. LiveXLive provides Digital Live Events for free to our users; however, beginning in May 2020 we launched PPV capabilities and began charging our users to view certain Digital Live Events. We monetize these live events through third party advertising and sponsorship, including with brands such as Hyundai, Facebook, Tik Tok, Porsche, and Pepsi, and selling territorial licensing rights to Tencent in China and Ocesa in Mexico. Our cost structure varies by music event, and may include set upfront fees/artist guarantees, the amount of which is often dependent on specific artist. A festival’s existing production infrastructure or lack thereof, and, in turn results in, us having a production/financial commitment to the live stream, and in some cases, we may also share the associated revenue. The fees generated from any advertising, sponsored content, VOD/PPV and other services are generally subject to the aforementioned revenue sharing arrangements with certain artists, festival owners and/or music right holders, when applicable.

  

In February 2020, we acquired React Presents, a Chicago based live music promoter giving us the rights to produce and stream over 200 events annually, including React Presents’ tent pole festival Spring Awakening.

 

Digital Internet Radio and Music Services

 

Our digital Internet radio and music services are available to users online and through automotive and mobile original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) on a white label basis, which allow certain OEMs to customize the radio and music services with their own logos, branding and systems. Our users are able to listen to a variety of music, radio personalities, news, sports, comedy and the audio of live music events. Our revenue structure for our digital Internet radio and music services varies and may be in the form of (i) a free service to the listener supported by paid advertising, (ii) paid premium subscription services, and/or (iii) a fixed fee per user. The fees generated from ad-supported and subscription services are generally subject to revenue sharing arrangements with music right holders and labels, and fees to festivals, clubs, events, concerts, artists, promoters, venues, music labels and publishers (“Content Providers”).

Podcast Services

 

Our podcasts are available to users online alongside our digital Internet radio. Our users are able to listen to a variety of podcasts, from music, radio personalities, news, entertainment, comedy and sports. The podcasts are available on the LiveXLive platforms and also on other leading podcast listening platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon. Similar to our digital Internet radio fee structure, we monetize podcasts through (i) paid advertising or (ii) paid premium subscription services. We own one of the largest networks of podcast content in North America, which generates more than 2.48 billion downloads per year and 300+ episodes distributed per week across a stable of hundreds of top podcasts. In April 2021, we announced an agreement with Samsung for all PodcastOne distributed content to be available via the Listen tab on Samsung TV.

 

Merchandise

 

With the acquisition of CPS, we now own a group of web-oriented businesses specializing in the merchandise personalization industry. CPS develops, manufactures, and distributes personalized products for wholesale and direct-to-consumer distribution. CPS offers thousands of exclusive personalized gift items for family, home, seasonal holidays, and special events along with personalized jewelry. Wholesale clients include Walmart, Zulily, Zales, Petco, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

 

Artist and Brand Development

 

With the acquisition of Gramophone, we now own an artist and brand development company which comprises boutique agencies specializing in public relations, music and technology, artists and repertoire, strategic marketing, brand positioning, graphic design, and social media management. The acquisition of Gramophone complements our recently launched online digital talent search platform, Self Made, and further expands on our business model adding a new component to our flywheel of complementary businesses by providing artists an end-to-end solution to develop and amplify their brand audiences across our apps, social media and podcast platforms.

 

Music Records Label and Studio

 

With the acquisition of Palm Beach Records effective as of January 2022, we now own a music records label and studio, and we plan to expand the studio’s music operations and launch a full-service podcast recording studio. We will use the studio to break and sign new music and podcast talent, broaden its publishing, management and recording divisions, offer exclusive content to drive new LiveOne members and use the studio for franchises and South Florida-based events - where we continue to bolster our operations and events.

 

Ancillary Products and Services

 

We also provide our customers the following:

 

  Regulatory Support – streaming of music is generally subject to copyright protection. Whenever possible, we use our best efforts to clear music copyright licenses, artist streaming preferences and music publishing rights in advance of usage.

 

  Post-Implementation Support – once our App is live on a platform, we provide technical and network support, which includes 24/7 operational assistance and monitoring of our services and performance.

Before you make a decision to invest in our securities, you should consider carefully the risks described below, together with other information in this prospectus and the information incorporated by reference herein, including any risk factors contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on July 14, 2021, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on August 16, 2021, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on October 29, 2021, and in our other reports filed with the SEC and in future reports that we will file periodically. If any of the following events actually occur, our business, operating results, prospects or financial condition could be materially and adversely affected. This could cause the trading price of our common stock to decline and you may lose part or all of your investment. The risks described below are not the only ones that we face. Additional risks not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also significantly impair our business operations and could result in a complete loss of your investment.

 

Risks Related to This Offering

 

Management will have broad discretion as to the use of the proceeds from this offering and may not use the proceeds effectively.

 

Because we have not designated the amount of net proceeds from this offering to be used for any particular purpose, our management will have broad discretion as to the application of the net proceeds from this offering and could use them for purposes other than those contemplated at the time of the offering. Our management may use the net proceeds for corporate purposes that may not improve our financial condition or market value. The failure by management to apply these funds effectively could result in financial losses that could have a material adverse effect on our business, cause the price of our common stock to decline and delay the implementation of our corporate strategy. Pending their use to fund our operations, we may invest our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, including the net proceeds from this offering, in a manner that does not produce income or that loses value.

 

You will experience immediate and substantial dilution as a result of this offering and may experience dilution as a result of future equity offerings.

 

The offering price per share in this offering may exceed the net tangible book value per share of our common stock outstanding prior to this offering. Assuming that an aggregate of 45.0 million shares of our common stock are sold during the term of the Sales Agreement at a price of $1.00 per share, the last reported sale price of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on February 1, 2022, for aggregate gross proceeds of $45.0 million, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us, you would experience immediate dilution of $0.97 per share, representing the difference between our as-adjusted net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2021, after giving effect to this offering and the assumed offering price. The exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants may result in further dilution of your investment. Additionally, because the sales of shares of our common stock offered hereby will be made directly into the market, the prices at which we sell such securities will vary and these variations may be significant. As a result, you may suffer dilution if you purchase shares in this offering at a higher price than other shares offered hereby are sold. See the section entitled “Dilution” on page P-7 below for a more detailed illustration of the dilution you would incur if you participate in this offering.

 

We expect that significant additional capital will be needed in the future to continue our planned operations. To the extent we raise additional capital by issuing equity and/or convertible securities, our stockholders may experience substantial dilution. We may sell or otherwise issue our common stock, convertible securities or other equity securities in one or more transactions at prices and in a manner we determine from time to time. If we sell or issue our common stock, convertible securities or other equity securities in more than one transaction, investors may be materially diluted by subsequent issuances. These issuances may also result in material dilution to our existing stockholders, and new investors could gain rights superior to our existing stockholders. We may pay for future acquisitions with additional issuances of shares of our common stock as well, which would result in further dilution for existing stockholders.

 

P-5

 

 

Pursuant to the 2016 Plan, there are 17,600,000 shares of our common stock reserved for issuance to our employees, directors and consultants, of which 7,400,000 shares of our common stock are underlying outstanding awards under the 2016 Plan as of February 2, 2022. If our board of directors elects to issue stock, stock options and/or other equity-based awards under the 2016 Plan, our stockholders may experience additional dilution, which could cause our stock price to fall.

 

Market price of our common stock may be highly volatile, you may not be able to resell your shares at or above the public offering price and you could lose all or part of your investment.

 

The trading price of our common stock may be volatile. As an investor, you might never recoup all, or even part of, your investment and you may never realize any return on your investment. You must be prepared to lose all your investment. Our stock price could be subject to wide fluctuations in response to a variety of factors, including the following:

 

  actual or anticipated fluctuations in our revenue and other operating results;
     
  actions of securities analysts who initiate or maintain coverage of us, changes in financial estimates by any securities analysts who follow our company, or our failure to meet these estimates or the expectations of investors;
     
  issuance of our equity or debt securities, or disclosure or announcements relating thereto;
     
  the lack of a meaningful, consistent and liquid trading market for our common stock;
     
  additional shares of our common stock being sold into the market by us or our stockholders or the anticipation of such sales;
     
  our convertible debt securities being converted into equity or the anticipation of such conversion;

 

  announcements by us or our competitors of significant events or features, technical innovations, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
     
  changes in operating performance and stock market valuations of companies in our industry;
     
  price and volume fluctuations in the overall stock market, including as a result of trends in the economy as a whole;
     
  lawsuits threatened or filed against us;
     
  changes in regulation or tax law;
     
  regulatory developments in the United States and foreign countries; and
     
  other events or factors, including those resulting from the impact of COVID-19 epidemic, war or incidents of terrorism, or responses to these events.

 

In addition, the stock market in general has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that have often been unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance of certain companies. Broad market and industry factors may negatively affect the market price of our common stock, regardless of our actual operating performance. 

 

We do not intend to pay dividends on our common stock so any returns will be limited to the value of our stock.

 

We have never declared or paid any cash dividend on our common stock. We currently anticipate that we will retain future earnings for the development, operation and expansion of our business and do not anticipate declaring or paying any cash dividends for the foreseeable future. Additionally, any credit and security agreement that we may enter into in the future will likely contain covenants that will restrict our ability to pay dividends. Any return to stockholders will therefore be limited to the appreciation of their stock.

 

P-6

 

 

Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market by certain of our stockholders could cause our stock price to fall.

Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market or the perception that these sales might occur, could depress the market price of our common stock and could impair our ability to raise capital through the sale of additional equity securities. We are unable to predict the effect that sales may have on the prevailing market price of our common stock.

 

An active trading market for our common stock may not be maintained.

 

Our stock is currently traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market, but we can provide no assurance that we will be able to maintain an active trading market on this or any other exchange in the future. If an active market for our common stock is not maintained, it may be difficult for our stockholders to sell or purchase shares. An inactive market may also impair our ability to raise capital to continue to fund operations by selling shares and impair our ability to acquire other companies or technologies using our shares as consideration.

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We cannot assure you that we will receive any proceeds in connection with securities which may be offered pursuant to this prospectus. We retain broad discretion over the use of the net proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock offered hereby. We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of shares of our common stock for working capital and other general corporate purposes, which may include future acquisitions of businesses and content. However, we have no commitments or obligations relating to future acquisitions.

 

We have not determined the amounts we plan to spend on any of the areas listed above or the timing of these expenditures. As a result, our management will have broad discretion to allocate the net proceeds, if any, we receive in connection with securities offered pursuant to this prospectus for any purpose.

 

DILUTION

 

If you invest in our common stock in this offering, your interest will be diluted immediately to the extent of the difference between the price per share you pay in this offering and the as adjusted net tangible book value per share of our common stock after giving effect to this offering. Our net tangible book value as of September 30, 2021 was approximately negative $39.8 million, or negative $0.49 per share of our common stock. Net tangible book value per share is calculated by subtracting our total liabilities from our total tangible assets, which is total assets less intangible assets (including goodwill), and dividing this amount by the number of shares of common stock outstanding. After giving effect to the sale by us of the full $45.0 million of common stock that may be offered in this offering at an assumed offering price of $1.00 per share, which was the closing price of our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on February 1, 2022, and after deducting estimated offering commissions and expenses payable by us, our as-adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2021 would have been approximately $3.7 million, or $0.03 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in the net tangible book value of $0.52 per share to our existing stockholders and an immediate and substantial dilution in net tangible book value of $0.97 per share to investors in this offering. The following table illustrates this hypothetical per share dilution:

 

Assumed public offering price per share           $ 1.00  
Net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2021   $ (0.49)          
Increase in net tangible book value per share attributable to this offering     0.52          
As adjusted net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2021, after giving effect to this offering             0.03  
Dilution per share to new investors purchasing shares in this offering           $ 0.97  

 

The table above assumes for illustrative purposes that an aggregate of 45,000,000 shares of our common stock are sold at a price of $1.00 per share, the last reported sale price of our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on February 1, 2022, for aggregate gross proceeds of $45.0 million. The shares sold in this offering, if any, will be sold from time to time at various prices. An increase of $0.50 per share in the price at which the shares are sold from the assumed offering price of $1.00 per share shown in the table above, assuming all of our common stock in the aggregate amount of $45.0 million is sold at that price, would increase our adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering to $0.3 per share and would increase the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering to $1.47 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. A decrease of $0.50 per share in the price at which the shares are sold from the assumed offering price of $1.00 per share shown in the table above, assuming all of our common stock in the aggregate amount of $45.0 million is sold at that price, would increase our adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering to $0.02 per share and the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering would decrease to $0.48 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. This information is supplied for illustrative purposes only.

 

P-7

 

 

For purposes of calculating net tangible book value, the above table is based on 81,908,983 shares issued and outstanding as of February 2, 2022, and assumes the sale of up to 45,000,000 shares of our common stock by Needham & Company, as Sales Agent, pursuant to the Sales Agreement, and does not include the following:

 

  17,600,000 shares of our common stock pursuant to our 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (as amended, the “2016 Plan”), that are reserved for future issuance to our employees, directors and consultants, of which 7,400,000 shares of our common stock under the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended, are underlying outstanding awards under the plan as of February 2, 2022.
     
  Approximately 5,806,321 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to outstanding convertible notes payable as of September 30, 2021.

 

DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES WE ARE OFFERING

 

General

 

The following description of our capital stock and provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws are summaries and are qualified by reference to the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws that are on file with the SEC.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes us to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share, and 500,000,000 shares of our common stock, $0.001 par value per share.

 

As of February 2, 2022, there were 81,908,983 and 0 shares of common stock and preferred stock, respectively, issued and outstanding.

 

As of February 2, 20121, we had 420 holders of record of our common stock, which excludes stockholders whose shares were held in nominee or street name by brokers. The actual number of common stockholders is greater than the number of record holders and includes stockholders who are beneficial owners, but whose shares are held in street name by brokers and other nominees. This number of holders of record also does not include stockholders whose shares may be held in trust by other entities.

 

Common Stock

 

Voting

 

Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held of record on all matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders, including the election of directors, and do not have cumulative voting rights. Accordingly, the holders of a majority of the shares of our common stock entitled to vote in any election of directors can elect all of the directors standing for election.

 

Dividends

 

Subject to preferences that may be applicable to any then outstanding preferred stock, the holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by our board of directors out of legally available funds.

 

Liquidation

 

In the event of our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, holders of our common stock will be entitled to share ratably in the net assets legally available for distribution to stockholders after the payment of all of our debts and other liabilities, subject to the satisfaction of any liquidation preference granted to the holders of any outstanding shares of preferred stock.

 

Rights and Preferences

 

Holders of our common stock have no preemptive, conversion or subscription rights, and there are no redemption or sinking fund provisions applicable to our common stock. The rights, preferences and privileges of the holders of our common stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of any series of our preferred stock that we may designate and issue in the future.

 

P-8

 

 

Fully Paid and Nonassessable

 

All of our outstanding shares of common stock are, and the shares of common stock to be issued in this offering will be, fully paid and nonassessable.

  

Preferred Stock

 

Our board of directors has the authority, without further action by the stockholders, to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more series, to establish from time to time the number of shares to be included in each such series, to fix the rights, preferences and privileges of the shares of each wholly unissued series and any qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereon and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such series, but not below the number of shares of such series then outstanding.

 

Our board of directors may authorize the issuance of preferred stock with voting or conversion rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the common stock. The issuance of preferred stock, while providing flexibility in connection with possible acquisitions and other corporate purposes, could, among other things, have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in our control that may otherwise benefit holders of our common stock and may adversely affect the market price of the common stock and the voting and other rights of the holders of common stock. As of December 3, 2018, there were no shares of our preferred stock outstanding, and we have no current plans to issue any shares of our preferred stock.

 

Authorized and Unissued Capital Stock

 

Delaware law does not require stockholder approval for any issuance of authorized shares. These additional shares may be used for a variety of corporate purposes, including future public offerings, to raise additional capital or to facilitate acquisitions.

 

One of the effects of the existence of unissued and unreserved common stock or preferred stock may be to enable our board of directors to issue shares to persons friendly to current management, which issuance could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of our company by means of a merger, tender offer, proxy contest or otherwise, and thereby protect the continuity of our management and possibly deprive the stockholders of opportunities to sell their shares at prices higher than prevailing market prices.

 

Warrants

 

As of February 2, 2022, there were no warrants outstanding.

 

2016 Plan Awards

 

As of February 2, 2022, we have granted options, restricted stock units, and restricted share awards, to purchase in aggregate of approximately 7,400,000 shares of our common stock under the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended, with a weighted average exercise price of approximately $3.92 per share.

 

Delaware Anti-Takeover Law and Certain Charter and Bylaw Provisions

 

Delaware Anti-Takeover Statute

 

We are subject to the provisions of Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law regulating corporate takeovers. In general, Section 203 prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging, under certain circumstances, in a business combination with an interested stockholder for a period of three years following the date the person became an interested stockholder unless:

 

  prior to the date of the transaction, our board of directors approved either the business combination or the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder;

 

  upon completion of the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced, excluding for purposes of determining the voting stock outstanding, but not the outstanding voting stock owned by the interested stockholder, (1) shares owned by persons who are directors and also officers and (2) shares owned by employee stock plans in which employee participants do not have the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer; or

 

P-9

 

 

  at or subsequent to the date of the transaction, the business combination is approved by our board of directors and authorized at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, and not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock which is not owned by the interested stockholder.

 

Generally, a business combination includes a merger, asset or stock sale, or other transaction resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. An interested stockholder is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, owns or, within three years prior to the determination of interested stockholder status, did own 15% or more of a corporation’s outstanding voting stock. We expect the existence of this provision to have an anti-takeover effect with respect to transactions our board of directors does not approve in advance. We also anticipate that Section 203 may discourage attempts that might result in a premium over the market price for the shares of common stock held by stockholders.

 

The provisions of Delaware law and the provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws could have the effect of discouraging others from attempting hostile takeovers and, as a consequence, they might also inhibit temporary fluctuations in the market price of our common stock that often result from actual or rumored hostile takeover attempts. These provisions might also have the effect of preventing changes in our management. It is also possible that these provisions could make it more difficult to accomplish transactions that stockholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests.

 

Bylaws

 

Provisions of our Bylaws may delay or discourage transactions involving an actual or potential change in our control or change in our management, including transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares or transactions that our stockholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests. Therefore, these provisions could adversely affect the price of our common stock. Among other things, our Bylaws:

 

  permit our board of directors to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, with any rights, preferences and privileges as they may designate (including the right to approve an acquisition or other change in our control);

 

  provide that the authorized number of directors may be changed only by resolution of the board of directors;

 

  provide that all vacancies, including newly created directorships, may, except as otherwise required by law, be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of directors then in office, even if less than a quorum; and

 

  do not provide for cumulative voting rights (therefore allowing the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock entitled to vote in any election of directors to elect all of the directors standing for election, if they should so choose).

 

The amendment of any of these provisions, with the exception of the ability of our board of directors to issue shares of preferred stock and designate any rights, preferences and privileges thereto, would require approval by the holders of a majority of our then outstanding common stock.

 

Listing

 

Our common stock is listed for quotation on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “LVO.”

 

Transfer Agent and Registrar

 

The transfer agent and registrar for our common stock is VStock Transfer, LLC. The transfer agent and registrar’s address is 18 Lafayette Place, Woodmere, NY 11598.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We have entered into a Sales Agreement, dated August 23, 2021, with Needham & Company, LLC (the “Sales Agent”). The Sales Agreement relates to the sale of shares of our common stock offered by this prospectus. In accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement, we may sell shares of our common stock for an aggregate offering price of up to $45,000,000 from time to time through or to the Sales Agent, acting as sales agent or principal, subject to certain limitations, including the number or dollar amount of shares registered under the registration statement to which the offering relates. The form of the Sales Agreement is filed as an exhibit to our Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference in this prospectus. The sales, if any, of shares made under the sales agreement will be made by any method that is deemed an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act. We may instruct the Sales Agent not to sell common stock if the sales cannot be effected at or above the price designated by us from time to time. We or the Sales Agent may suspend the offering of common stock upon notice and subject to other conditions.

 

Each time we wish to issue and sell common stock under the sales agreement, we will notify the Sales Agent of the number or dollar value of shares to be issued, the dates on which such sales are anticipated to be made, any minimum price below which sales may not be made and other sales parameters as we deem appropriate. Once we have so instructed such designated Sales Agent, unless such Sales Agent declines to accept the terms of the notice, such Sales Agent has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with such agent’s normal trading and sales practices to sell such shares up to the amount specified on such terms. The obligations of the Sales Agent under the sales agreement to sell our common stock is subject to a number of conditions that we must meet.

 

We will pay the Sales Agent commission for its services in acting as agent in the sale of common stock. The Sales Agent will be entitled to a commission equal to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of common stock offered hereby. In addition, we have agreed to reimburse certain expenses of the Sales Agent in an amount not to exceed $50,000 in connection with the preparation of the Sales Agreement and/or establishment of the “at the market offering,” and $5,000 for each periodic update of the “at the market offering”. In accordance with Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. Rule 5110, these fees and reimbursed expenses are deemed sales compensation in connection with this offering. We estimate that the total expenses for the offering, excluding compensation payable to the Sales Agent under the terms of the sales agreement, will be approximately $120,000.

 

Settlement for sales of common stock will generally occur on the second business day following the date on which any sales are made, or on some other date that is agreed upon by us and the Sales Agent in connection with a particular transaction, in return for payment of the net proceeds to us. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in an escrow, trust or similar arrangement.

 

In connection with the sale of the common stock on our behalf, the Sales Agent will be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act and the compensation of the Sales Agent will be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts. We have agreed to provide indemnification and contribution to the Sales Agent against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. We have also agreed to reimburse the sales agent for certain other specified expenses.

 

The offering of our common stock pursuant to this prospectus will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all of our common stock provided for in this prospectus or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement as provided therein.

 

The Sales Agent and its respective affiliates may in the future provide various investment banking and other financial services for us and our affiliates, for which services they may in the future receive customary fees. To the extent required by Regulation M, the Sales Agent will not engage in any market making activities involving our common stock while the offering is ongoing under this prospectus.
