Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On June 10, 2020, Vicor Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Needham & Company, LLC, acting as representative of the underwriters named therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), relating to the issuance and sale of 1,538,462 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Firm Shares”). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriters the right to purchase from the Company up to an additional 230,769 shares of its common stock, exercisable within a 30-day period (the “Option Shares” and together with the Firm Shares, the “Shares”) at the public offering price less the underwriting discounts. The public offering price is $65.00 per share. The net proceeds to the Company from this offering are expected to be approximately $95,450,029, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company. The offering is expected to close on or about June 15, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by such parties.

The offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-239041) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 9, 2020. A prospectus supplement relating to the offering has been filed with the SEC.
