Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 23, 2019, Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain investors (the “Investors”) for the sale by the Company of 5,000,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a purchase price of $0.60 per share (the “Purchase Price”). The closing of the sale of the Shares under the Purchase Agreement occurred on May 28, 2019. The aggregate gross proceeds for the sale of the Shares was $3.0 million.
The net proceeds to the Company from the sale of the Shares, after deducting the fees of the financial advisor but before paying the Company’s estimated offering expenses, were approximately $2.7 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the transaction for working capital and for other general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, working capital, product development, acquisitions, capital expenditures, and other business opportunities.
The Shares were offered and sold by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 1, 2017 (File No. 333-221264) (the “Registration Statement”), and a related prospectus.
The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreement and not as statements of fact, and (ii) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders of, or other investors in, the Company. Accordingly, the Purchase Agreement is filed with this report only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of transaction, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Stockholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.
The form of the Purchase Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The foregoing summary of the terms of this document is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, such document, which is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On May 23, 2019, the Company issued a press release regarding the transaction described above under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Forward Looking Statements.
The Items discussed in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits thereto contain forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of this Current Report on Form 8-K. These forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to the amount and use of the expected net proceeds from the sale of the Company’s common stock. In some cases, forward-looking statements may be identified by terminology such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “predict,” “goal,” “strategy,” “potentially,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “would,” “project,” “plan,” “expect,” “seek” and similar expressions and variations thereof. These words are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
The Company has based these forward-looking statements largely on its current expectations and projections about future events and trends that the Company believes may affect its financial condition, results of operations, business strategy, research and development, short-term and long-term business operations and objectives and financial needs. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those described herein and in the “Risk Factors” sections and elsewhere in each of the prospectus supplement filed in connection with the sale of the Company’s common stock described herein and the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019. Moreover, the Company operates in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment, and new risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for the Company’s management to predict all risks, nor can the Company assess the impact of all factors on its business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements it may make. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the forward-looking events and circumstances discussed in this Current Report on Form 8-K may not occur and actual results could differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements.
The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this report to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations, except as required by law.
