EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

On September 11, 2017, the registrant filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-220419), which was declared effective by the SEC on September 21, 2017 (the “Original Registration Statement”). The Original Registration Statement was filed to register shares of the registrant’s Class A common stock, preferred stock, debt securities, warrants and units, including shares of Class A common stock or preferred stock upon conversion of debt securities, Class A common stock upon the conversion of preferred stock, or Class A common stock, preferred stock or debt securities upon the exercise of warrants. In connection with the Original Registration Statement, the registrant offered and sold shares of Series B preferred stock, which shares are convertible into shares of Class A common stock, and warrants to purchase shares of Series B preferred stock or Class A common stock pursuant to prospectus supplements filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on October 9, 2018 and May 10, 2019.

 

This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-3 on Form S-1 is being filed to convert the Original Registration Statement into a Registration Statement on Form S-1, and contains an updated prospectus relating to the offering and sale of the shares of Series B preferred stock and Class A common stock that were registered on the Original Registration Statement.

 

All applicable registration and filing fees were paid by the registrant in connection with filing the Original Registration Statement.

 

 

 
 
 
 

 
 

The information in this prospectus is not complete and may be changed. We may not sell these securities until the registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission is effective. This prospectus is not an offer to sell these securities and we are not soliciting offers to buy these securities in any state where the offer or sale is not permitted.

PROSPECTUS

 

INNOVATION PHARMACEUTICALS INC.

 

7,320 Shares of Series B 5% Convertible Preferred Stock issuable upon the exercise of outstanding warrants

 

64,000,000 Shares of Class A Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of Series B Preferred Stock

 

This prospectus relates to (i) 6,920 shares of our Series B 5% convertible preferred stock, which we refer to as our Series B preferred stock, which are issuable upon the exercise of warrants described below, (ii) 400 shares of our Series B preferred stock issuable pursuant to the terms of a warrant restructuring and additional issuance agreement dated May 9, 2019, which shares are issuable in connection with the exercise of warrants as provided in the agreement, and (iii) 64,000,000 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, which we refer to as our common stock, issuable from time to time upon conversion of Series B preferred stock.

 

Each share of Series B preferred stock has an initial stated value of $1,080 and may be converted at any time at the holder’s option into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal of the lower of (i) $0.31625 per share and (ii) 85% of the lowest volume weighted average price of our common stock as reported on Bloomberg L.P. on a trading day during the ten trading days prior to and ending on, and including, the conversion date. The conversion price may be adjusted following certain triggering events and is subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalization or similar events affecting our common stock.

 

The warrants are composed of four series and were originally issued as follows: (i) on October 9, 2018, series 1 warrants to purchase 1,563 shares of Series B preferred stock, series 2 warrants to purchase 1,563 shares of Series B preferred stock, and series 3 warrants to purchase 1,875 shares of Series B preferred stock, (ii) on October 12, 2018, series 1 warrants to purchase 937 shares of Series B preferred stock, series 2 warrants to purchase 937 shares of Series B preferred stock, and series 3 warrants to purchase 1,125 shares of Series B preferred stock, and (iii) on May 9, 2019, series 4 warrants to purchase 2,500 shares of Series B preferred stock. The holders of the warrants exercised 3,580 series 1 and series 2 warrants to purchase 3,580 shares of our Class B preferred stock prior to the date hereof, leaving 6,920 warrants outstanding as of the date of this prospectus. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase shares of Series B preferred stock at $982.50 per share. The series 1 and series 2 warrants each have an initial term of 15 months following issuance, the series 3 warrants have an initial term of 24 months following issuance, and the series 4 warrants have a term of 9 months following issuance.

 

Our common stock is currently quoted on the OTCQB under the symbol “IPIX.” On September 19, 2019, the last reported sales price of our common stock on the OTCQB was $0.1389 per share. There is no established public trading market for our Series B preferred stock and we do not expect a market to develop. In addition, we do not intend to apply for listing our Series B preferred stock on any national securities exchange or any other nationally recognized trading system.

 

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should read “Risk Factors” beginning on page 4 of this prospectus and the reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), incorporated by reference in this prospectus, to read about factors to consider before purchasing our securities.

 

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or determined if this prospectus is truthful or complete. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

DISCLOSURE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This prospectus, any applicable prospectus supplement and the documents we have incorporated by reference contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements convey our current expectations or forecasts of future events. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

 

Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of the words “estimate,” “project,” “believe,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “expect” and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning our future drug development plans and projected timelines for the initiation and completion of preclinical and clinical trials; the potential for the results of ongoing preclinical or clinical trials; other statements regarding our future product development and regulatory strategies, including with respect to specific indications; any statements regarding our future financial performance, results of operations or sufficiency of capital resources to fund our operating requirements; and any other statements which are other than statements of historical fact. Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Actual results could differ materially from those in forward-looking statements because of, among other reasons, the factors described below and in the periodic reports that we file with the SEC from time to time, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K and any amendments thereto. The forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. They are based on numerous assumptions that we believe are reasonable, but they are open to a wide range of uncertainties and business risks.

 

Key factors that could cause actual results to be different than expected or anticipated include, but are not limited to:

 

 

· our capital needs and ability to continue as a going concern;

 

 

 

 

· our ability to continue to fund and successfully progress internal research and development efforts;

 

 

 

 

· our ability to create effective, commercially-viable drugs;

 

 

 

 

· our ability to effectively and timely conduct clinical trials;

 

 

 

 

· our ability to ultimately distribute our drug candidates;

 

 

 

 

· compliance with regulatory requirements; and

 

 

 

 

· other risks referred to in the section of this prospectus entitled “Risk Factors” and in the SEC filings incorporated by reference in this prospectus.

 

In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which are inherently unreliable and speak only as of the date of this prospectus, any applicable prospectus supplement or as of the date of any document incorporated by reference in this prospectus or any applicable prospectus supplement, as applicable. When considering forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the cautionary statements in this prospectus, any applicable prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference. We are not under any obligation, and we expressly disclaim any obligation, to update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the forward-looking events discussed in or incorporated by reference in this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement might not occur.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. Before making an investment decision, you should consider carefully the risks discussed under the sections captioned “Risk Factors” set forth in the documents and reports filed by us with the SEC, that are incorporated by reference into this prospectus, including in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, as revised or supplemented by our most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, each of which are on file with the SEC and are incorporated herein by reference, as well as any risks described in our other filings with the SEC, before deciding whether to buy our securities. Our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected by any of these risks. The trading price of our securities could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment. In addition, please read “Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in this prospectus, where we describe additional uncertainties associated with our business and the forward-looking statements included or incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Please note that additional risks not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business and operations.

 

Our Series B preferred stock converts into shares of common stock at a discount to the market price of our common stock. As a result, our common stockholders will experience substantial additional dilution if shares of our Series B preferred stock are converted into common stock.

 

Our Series B preferred stock may be converted at any time at the holder’s option into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal of the lower of (i) $0.31625 per share and (ii) 85% of the lowest volume weighted average sale prices of our Class A common stock as reported on Bloomberg L.P. on a trading day during the ten trading days prior to and ending on, and including, the conversion date. In addition, the conversion price may be decreased following certain triggering events. Our Series B preferred stock, of which 1,096 shares were outstanding as of June 30, 2019 and warrants to purchase an additional 6,725 shares were outstanding as of the date of this prospectus and an additional 400 shares of which may be issuable under an agreement with the warrant holders, has substantially similar provisions. As a result, the number of shares of common stock that the holders of our Series B preferred stock will receive upon conversion will increase as our common stock price decreases, and there is no floor to the conversion price, and our common stockholders will experience substantial dilution as shares of our Series B Preferred Stock offered hereby are converted into our common stock. Any dilution or potential dilution may cause our stockholders to sell their shares, which may contribute to a downward movement in the stock price of our common stock.

 

Management will have broad discretion as to the use of the proceeds from this offering, and we may not use the proceeds effectively.

 

Our management will have broad discretion in the application of the proceeds from sales of our securities in this offering, and could spend the proceeds in ways that do not improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our common stock. Our failure to apply these funds effectively could have a material adverse effect on our business and cause the price of our common stock to decline.

 

In addition to potential dilution associated with future fundraising transactions, we currently have significant numbers of securities outstanding that are exercisable for our common stock, which could result in significant additional dilution and downward pressure on our stock price.

 

As of August 27, 2019, there were 205.6 million shares of our common stock outstanding. In addition, as of March 31, 2019, there were outstanding stock options, warrants and convertible securities or debt representing the potential issuance of an additional 75 million shares of our common stock, in addition to the potential issuance of shares of common stock upon the conversion of Series B preferred stock offered hereby. The issuance of these shares in the future would result in significant dilution to our current stockholders and could adversely affect the price of our common stock and the terms on which we could raise additional capital. In addition, the issuance and subsequent trading of shares could cause the supply of our common stock available for purchase in the market to exceed the purchase demand for our common stock. Such supply in excess of demand could cause the market price of our common stock to decline.

The Company has no history of paying dividends on its common stock, and we do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

The Company has not previously paid dividends on its common stock. We currently anticipate that we will retain all of our available cash, if any, for use as working capital and for other general corporate purposes. Any payment of future dividends on our common stock will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend upon, among other things, our earnings, financial condition, capital requirements, level of indebtedness, statutory and contractual restrictions applicable to the payment of dividends and other considerations that our Board of Directors deems relevant. Investors must rely on sales of their common stock after price appreciation, which may never occur, as the only way to realize a return on their investment.

 

There is no public market for the Series B preferred stock being offered in this offering.

 

There is no established public trading market for our Series B preferred stock being offered in this offering, and we do not expect a market to develop. In addition, we do not intend to apply for listing of our Series B preferred stock on any national securities exchange or other nationally recognized trading system. Without an active market, the liquidity of our Series B preferred stock will be limited.

 

Holders of our Series B preferred stock will have no rights as a holder of our common stock until such holders convert their Series B preferred stock and acquire our common stock.

 

Until holders of our Series B preferred stock acquire shares of our common stock upon conversion of the Series B preferred stock, holders of Series B preferred stock will have no rights with respect to the shares of our common stock underlying such shares of Series B preferred stock, except as set forth in the related certificate of designation. Upon conversion of the Series B preferred stock, the holders thereof will be entitled to exercise the rights of a holder of our common stock only as to matters for which the record date occurs after the exercise date.

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We will receive up to $6.8 million upon the exercise of the warrants sold by us in this offering, which if fully exercised would result in proceeds to us, after deducting estimated offering expenses payable by us, of approximately $6.7 million. We cannot predict when or if the warrants will be exercised, and it is possible that the warrants may expire and never be exercised. We intend to use the net proceeds, if any, from this offering for general working capital purposes. The amounts and timing of expenditures will depend on a number of factors, such as the timing, scope, progress and results of our research and development efforts, the timing and progress of any partnering efforts, and the competitive environment for our product candidates. As of the date of this prospectus, we cannot specify with certainty the particular uses of the proceeds from this offering. Accordingly, we will retain broad discretion over the use of such proceeds. Until we use the proceeds for any purpose, we expect to invest them in short-term investments.

Our earnings were inadequate to cover fixed charges for each of the periods indicated above. We did not pay any preferred stock dividends during the periods. The amount of the deficiency by which our earnings did not cover our fixed charges for each such period is disclosed in the second line of the above table.

 

This information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes incorporated by reference in this prospectus.

 

DILUTION

 

Our net tangible book deficit as March 31, 2019 was approximately $(4.3) million, or $(0.02) per share. We calculate net tangible book deficit per share by dividing the net tangible book deficit, which is tangible assets less total liabilities, by the number of outstanding shares of our common stock. Dilution per share of our common stock to investors in this offering represents the difference between the assumed amount paid per share of our common stock underlying the Series B preferred stock (assuming full exercise of the warrants) and the assumed net tangible book deficit per share of our common stock following the completion of this offering.

 

After giving effect to the issuance of 7,320 shares of our Series B preferred stock for net proceeds of approximately $6.8 million after deducting estimated offering expenses payable by us, and assuming a conversion price of $0.1389 per share, which is closing price of our common stock on September 19, 2019, our as adjusted net tangible book value as of March 31, 2019 would have been approximately $2.5 million, or $0.01 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $0.03 per share to existing stockholders and assumed immediate dilution in net tangible book deficit of $0.1289 per share to investors participating in this offering. The following table illustrates this dilution on a per share basis:

The foregoing dilution information is based on 187,575,318 shares of our common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2019. The actual price at which investors convert their Series B preferred stock may be higher or lower than the assumed price of $0.1389 per share and our total shares may continue to change, and is expected to continue to change. A decrease of $0.05 per share in the conversion price would result in the same adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering but would decrease the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering to $0.08 per share, after deducting estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. An increase of $0.05 per share in the conversion price would result in the same adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering but would increase the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering to $0.18 per share, after deducting estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. This information is supplied for illustrative purposes only.

Accordingly, the holders of a majority of the shares of Class A common stock entitled to vote in any election of directors can elect all of the directors standing for election.

 

Subject to preferences that may be applicable to any then outstanding preferred stock, holders of Class A common stock are entitled to receive ratably those dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the board of directors out of legally available funds.

General

 

Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation authorizes our Board of Directors to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, of which no shares are issued and outstanding.

 

Subject to the limitations prescribed by our Articles of Incorporation, our Board is authorized to establish the number of shares constituting each series of preferred stock and to fix the designation, powers, preferences and relative participating, optional and other rights of each of those series and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions of each of those series, all without any further vote or action by our stockholders. Our Board has designated 20,000 of the 10,000,000 authorized shares of preferred stock as Series B 5% Convertible Preferred Stock. When sold, issued and paid for in accordance with the terms of the Issuance Agreement, the shares of Series B preferred stock will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

 

Voluntary Conversions by Holders

 

Each holder of Series B preferred stock may, at any time, elect to convert shares of Series B preferred stock into shares of our common stock at the conversion price, subject to certain beneficial ownership volume limitations described below. The number of shares into which each share of Series B preferred stock is determined by dividing the then stated value of the share of Series B preferred stock by the conversion price. The conversion price is defined as lower of (i) $0.31625 per share and (ii) 85% of the lowest volume weighted average sales price of the Class A Common Stock as reported on Bloomberg L.P. at 4:02 p.m. (New York City time) on a trading day during the ten trading days prior to and ending on, and including, the conversion date. The conversion price is subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalization or similar events affecting our common stock. In addition, upon the occurrence of a triggering event (as defined below), the variable conversion rate will drop to 70% in (ii) above, and the $0.31625 price reflected in (i) could be adjusted downward under certain circumstances. In addition, in the event we issue dilutive securities within five trading days after a holder’s conversion of Series B preferred stock into common stock, we will issue additional shares of common stock to such holder as provided in the Certificate of Designation.

 

Fundamental Transactions

 

In the event we effect certain mergers, consolidations, sales of substantially all of our assets, tender or exchange offers, reclassifications or share exchanges in which our common stock is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property, or we consummate a business combination in which another person acquires 50% or more of the outstanding shares of our common stock, then, upon any subsequent conversion of the Series B preferred stock, the holders of such Series B preferred stock will have the right to receive any shares of the successor or acquiring corporation and any additional consideration it would have been entitled to receive if it had been a holder of the number of shares of common stock then issuable upon conversion in full (including accrued but unpaid dividends thereon) of the Series B preferred stock immediately prior to any of the foregoing transactions.

 

In addition, we have agreed to have any successor entity in any of the foregoing transactions in which we are not the surviving entity to assume in writing all of our obligations under the Certificate of Designation.

 

Limitations on Conversion and Issuance

 

The Series B preferred stock may not be converted and shares of our common stock may not be issued under the Certificate of Designation with respect to such Series B preferred stock if, after giving effect to the conversion or issuance, a holder together with its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% of the outstanding shares of our common stock.

 

The holders of the Series B preferred stock are limited in the amount of stated value of the Series B preferred stock they can convert on any trading day. The conversion cap limits conversions by the holders to the greater of $75,000 and an amount equal to 30% of the aggregate dollar trading volume of our common stock on our primary trading market for the five trading days immediately preceding, and including, the conversion date. However, the conversion cap will be increased if the trading volume in the first 30 minutes of any trading session exceeds certain trailing average daily volume amounts.

 

Dividends

 

Holders of the Series B preferred stock are entitled to receive, and we shall pay, cumulative dividends at a rate per share of 5% per annum (calculated quarterly as a percentage of the stated value per share for each quarterly period). Unless we elect to pay dividends in cash, dividends on a share of Series B preferred stock will increase such share of Series B preferred stock’s stated value and will be payable on each dividend payment date (plus two trading days or standard settlement period, whichever is shorter).

Table of Contents

  

If at any time while the Series B preferred stock is outstanding, we make distributions of rights, cash or other assets to holders of our common stock, the holders of the Series B preferred stock will be entitled to participate in such distribution, on a per share basis, as if the shares of Series B preferred stock were converted into shares of common stock (without regard to any beneficial ownership limitation) at the time of payment of such distribution.

 

Liquidation Preference

 

Upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, the holders of the Series B preferred stock shall be entitled to receive out of our assets, whether capital or surplus, an amount equal to such holder’s then stated value for each share of Series B Preferred Stock before any distribution to the holders of our common stock or other junior securities. If there are insufficient assets to pay in full such amounts, then the available assets shall be ratably distributed to the holders of the Series B preferred stock in accordance with the respective amounts that would be payable on such shares if all amounts payable thereon were paid in full.

 

Redemption Rights

 

Shares of Series B preferred stock are not otherwise entitled to any redemption rights, or mandatory sinking fund or analogous fund provisions, other than as set forth under “Triggering Events” below. Following 30 days after the closing, the Company may elect to redeem the Series B preferred stock for 120% of the aggregate stated value then outstanding, plus all accrued but unpaid dividends and all liquidated damages and other amounts due in respect of the Series B preferred stock. The Company’s right to redeem the Series B preferred stock is contingent upon it having complied with a number of conditions, including compliance with its obligations under the Certificate of Designation.

 

Voting Rights; Negative Covenants

 

Shares of Series B preferred stock will generally have no voting rights, except as required by law and except that the Company shall not, without the consent of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of the Series B Preferred Stock:

 

 

· alter or change adversely the powers, preferences or rights given to the Series B preferred stock or alter or amend the Certificate of Designation;

 

 

 

 

· authorize or create or issue any class of stock ranking as to dividends, redemption or distribution of assets upon a liquidation senior to, or otherwise pari passu with, the Series B preferred stock;

 

 

 

 

· amend its Articles of Incorporation or other charter documents in any manner that adversely affects any rights of the holders of the Series B preferred stock;

 

 

 

 

· increase the number of authorized shares of Series B preferred stock; or

 

 

 

 

· enter into any agreement with respect to any of the foregoing.

Table of Contents

 

In addition, so long as any shares of Series B preferred stock are outstanding, the Company may not, without the consent of at 67% of the stated value of the then outstanding shares of Series B preferred stock:

 

 

· amend the Company’s charter documents, including, without limitation, its articles of incorporation and bylaws, in any manner that materially and adversely affects any rights of the holders of the Series B preferred stock;

 

 

 

 

· repay, repurchase or offer to repay, repurchase or otherwise acquire more than a de minimis number of shares of its common stock or other junior securities, subject to certain exceptions;

 

 

 

 

· pay cash dividends or distributions on its common stock or other junior securities;

 

 

 

 

· enter into any transaction with any affiliate which would be required to be disclosed in any public filing with the SEC, unless such transaction is made on an arm’s-length basis and expressly approved by a majority of the Company’s disinterested directors; or

 

 

 

 

· enter into any agreement with respect to any of the foregoing.

 

Triggering Events

 

Upon the occurrence of certain triggering events, the conversion price will decrease as specified under “Voluntary Conversions by Holders” above and the holders of the Series B preferred stock will have the right to require the Company to redeem the preferred stock at a price equal to the greater of (i) 120% of the aggregate stated value then outstanding and (ii) the product of the volume weighted average price on the trading day immediately preceding the date of the triggering event and the stated value divided by the then conversion price, plus in either case all accrued but unpaid dividends thereon and all liquidated damages and other costs, expenses or amounts due in respect of the preferred stock. Each of the following would constitute a triggering event if the holders of a majority of the Series B preferred stock did not otherwise consent:

 

(i) if the Company fails to provide at all times a registration statement that permits the Company to issue shares of common stock upon conversion of the Series B preferred stock or warrants, subject to a grace period of 20 calendar days in the aggregate in any 365-day period, or if the Company cannot issue shares of common stock under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended;

Item 14. Indemnification of Directors and Officers

 

Neither our Articles of Incorporation nor bylaws prevent us from indemnifying our officers, directors and agents to the extent permitted under the Nevada Revised Statute (“NRS”). NRS Section 78.7502, provides that a corporation shall indemnify any director, officer, employee or agent of a corporation against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with any the defense to the extent that a director, officer, employee or agent of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to Section 78.7502(1) or 78.7502(2), or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein. NRS 78.7502(1) provides that a corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, except an action by or in the right of the corporation, by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the action, suit or proceeding if he: (a) is not liable pursuant to NRS 78.138; or (b) acted in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful.

 

NRS Section 78.7502(2) provides that a corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against expenses, including amounts paid in settlement and attorneys’ fees actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the defense or settlement of the action or suit if he: (a) is not liable pursuant to NRS 78.138; or (b) acted in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim of indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of ours in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of our counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by us is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Item 17. Undertakings

 

(a) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

1. To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

(i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

 

(ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

 

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

 

provided, however, that subparagraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those subparagraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.

 

2. That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

3. To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

4. That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser: each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness; provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

 

 
II-4
 
 

  

5. That, for purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

(i) Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424 (§ 230.424 of this chapter);

 

(ii) Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

 

(iii) The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

 

(iv) Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.

 

6. That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.

 

(b) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(c) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes to supplement the prospectus, after the expiration of the subscription period, to set forth the results of the subscription offer, the transactions by the underwriters during the subscription period, the amount of unsubscribed securities to be purchased by the underwriters, and the terms of any subsequent reoffering thereof. If any public offering by the underwriters is to be made on terms differing from those set forth on the cover page of the prospectus, a post-effective amendment will be filed to set forth the terms of such offering.

 

(d) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes to deliver or cause to be delivered with the prospectus, to each person to whom the prospectus is sent or given, the latest annual report to security holders that is incorporated by reference in the prospectus and furnished pursuant to and meeting the requirements of Rule 14a-3 or Rule 14c-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; and, where interim financial information required to be presented by Article 3 of Regulation S-X are not set forth in the prospectus, to deliver, or cause to be delivered to each person to whom the prospectus is sent or given, the latest quarterly report that is specifically incorporated by reference in the prospectus to provide such interim financial information.

 

(e) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that: (1) For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b) (1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective. (2) For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(f) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
