Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On May 16, 2023, Outlook Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an at-the-market-sales agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with BTIG, LLC (“BTIG”), pursuant to which the Company may issue and sell shares of its common stock, $0.01 par value per share (“Common Stock”), from time to time through BTIG as sales agent and/or principal having an aggregate offering price of up to $100,000,000 (the “Shares”).


The offering has been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-254778), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on April 1, 2021. The Company will file a prospectus supplement, dated May 16, 2023, with the Commission relating to the Shares.


BTIG may sell the Shares by any method that is deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act, including, without limitation, sales made directly on The Nasdaq Capital Market or any other existing trading market for the Common Stock. BTIG may also sell Shares under the Sales Agreement in privately negotiated transactions with the Company’s consent, and in block transactions. BTIG will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Common Stock under the Sales Agreement from time to time, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Common Stock under the Sales Agreement.


The Sales Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and agreements by the Company, and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties. The Company will pay BTIG a commission equal to 3% of the aggregate gross proceeds of any sale of Shares under the Sales Agreement. In addition, the Company has agreed to reimburse certain legal expenses and fees incurred by BTIG in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Sales Agreement, in an amount not to exceed (A) $65,000 in connection with the execution of the Sales Agreement and (B) up to $6,500 in connection with each Representation Date (as defined in the Sales Agreement).


The offering of Shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all Common Stock subject to the Sales Agreement or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement in accordance with its terms.


The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The legal opinion of Cooley LLP relating to the Common Stock being offered pursuant to the Sales Agreement is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Common Stock nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the Common Stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction.


Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


In connection with entering into the Sales Agreement, the Company terminated, effective May 15, 2023, its at-the-market offering agreement, dated as of March 26, 2021 (the “Prior Sales Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co. with respect to an at-the-market offering program under which the Company could offer and sell, from time to time at its sole discretion, shares of its Common Stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $40,000,000 (the “Prior ATM Program”). As a result of the termination of the Prior Sales Agreement, the Company will not offer or sell any additional shares under the Prior ATM Program.
