Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On August 18, 2020, Biostage, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “First Purchase Agreement”) with Dao Capital Group Limited (the “Purchaser”). Pursuant to and simultaneously with the execution of the First Purchase Agreement, the Company issued 75,000 shares of its common stock to the Purchaser at a purchase price of $4.00 per share.

 

On August 20, 2020, the Company entered into a second Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Second Purchase Agreement” and, together with the First Purchase Agreement, the “Purchase Agreements”) with the Purchaser. Pursuant to and simultaneously with the execution of the Second Purchase Agreement dated August 20, 2020, the Company issued 50,000 shares of its common stock to the Purchaser at a purchase price of $4.00 per share.

 

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreements were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreements. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreements 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 Agreements are included with this filing 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 or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the dates of the Purchase Agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.

 

The foregoing descriptions of Purchase Agreements and of all of the parties’ rights and obligations under the Purchase Agreements are qualified in their entirety by reference the First Purchase Agreement and the Second Purchase Agreement, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and which are incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities.

 

The disclosure in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. In connection with the foregoing, the Company relied upon the exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for transactions not involving a public offering, and Rule 506 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as to sales to accredited investors, and is in reliance on similar exemptions under state laws.
