On September 17, 2020, Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (the “Company”) entered into certain securities purchase agreement (the “SPA”) with certain “non-U.S. Persons” (the “Purchasers”) as defined in Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 720,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, no par value (“Common Stock”), and warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase 720,000 Shares at a per share purchase price of $1.46 (the “Offering”). The net proceeds to the Company from such Offering will be approximately $1.05 million.

  

The Warrants will be exercisable six (6) months following the date of issuance at an exercise price of $1.825 for cash (the “Warrant Shares”). The Warrants may also be exercised cashlessly if at any time after the six-month anniversary of the issuance date, there is no effective registration statement registering, or no current prospectus available for, the resale of the Warrant Shares. The Warrants will expire five and a half (5.5) years from its date of issuance. The Warrants are subject to anti-dilution provisions to reflect stock dividends and splits or other similar transactions. The Warrants contain a mandatory exercise right for the Company to force exercise the Warrants if the Company’s common stock trades at or above $4.38 for 20 consecutive trading days, provided, among other things, that the shares issuable upon exercise of the are registered or may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 and the daily trading volume exceeds 60,000 shares of Common Stock per trading day on each trading day in a period of 20 consecutive trading days prior to the applicable date.

 

The parties to the SPA have each made customary representations, warranties and covenants, including, among other things, (a) the Purchasers are “non-U.S. Persons” as defined in Regulation S and are acquiring the Shares for the purpose of investment, (b) the absence of any undisclosed material adverse effects, and (c) the Company’s ability to issue to securities in accordance with the terms of the SPA without conflicting with or breaching any incorporation documents, material agreements, laws, rules, or regulations.

 

The SPA is subject to various conditions to closing, including, among other things, (a) Nasdaq’s approval of the listing of the Shares and Warrant Shares and (b) the accuracy of the Purchasers’ and the Company’s representations and warranties.
