Other Events.

As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed October 23, 2020, Plus Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) with Canaccord Genuity LLC (the “Agent”) on October 23, 2020, pursuant to which, the Company may issue and sell, from time to time, shares of its common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $10,000,000 (the “Shares”), depending on market demand, with the Agent acting as an agent for sales. Sales of the Shares may be made by any method permitted by law in transactions deemed to be an “at-the-market” offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including, without limitation, sales made directly on or through the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company has no obligation to sell any of the Shares. The Company may instruct the Agent not to sell the Shares if the sales cannot be effected at or above the price designated by the Company from time to time and the Company may at any time suspend sales pursuant to the Distribution Agreement. The offering will terminate upon the earlier of (1) the issuance and sale of all shares of the Company’s common stock subject to the Distribution Agreement, or (2) the termination of the Distribution Agreement as permitted therein, including by either party at any time without liability of any party.

Any sales of Shares under the Distribution Agreement will be made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-249410), including the related prospectus, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 9, 2020 and declared effective on October 19, 2020, as supplemented by the prospectus supplement dated October 23, 2020 and the prospectus supplement dated February 23, 2021. The aggregate market value of Shares eligible for sale in the offering and under the Distribution Agreement will be subject to the limitations of General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3, to the extent required under such instruction. The prospectus supplement dated October 23, 2020 related to Shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $4,960,000. The prospectus supplement dated February 23, 2021 relates to Shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $5,040,000. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes and for working capital.

The foregoing description of the Distribution Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Distribution Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the legal opinion of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP regarding the legality of the issuance and sale of the Shares is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this report and is incorporated by reference herein.

This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any Shares, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of any Shares, in any jurisdiction in which it is unlawful to make the offer, solicitation or sale.
