Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

White Lion Stock Purchase Agreement

 

On May 17, 2022, Nukkleus Inc. (the “Company” or “Nukkleus”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “White Lion Agreement”) with White Lion Capital Partners, LLC a California-based investment fund (“White Lion”). Under the terms of the White Lion Agreement, Nukkleus has the right, but not the obligation, to require White Lion to purchase shares of Nukkleus common stock up to a maximum amount of $75,000,000 or such lower amount as may be required pursuant to the rules of the market on which shares of Nukkleus common stock trades at such time. Pursuant to terms of the White Lion Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement (as defined below), Nukkleus is required to use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC a registration statement covering the shares to be acquired by White Lion within sixty days following the closing of the previously announced business combination with Brilliant Acquisition Corporation described in Nukkleus’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 23, 2022 (the “Business Combination”).

 

The term of the White Lion Agreement commences on the effective date of the registration statement and shall end on December 31, 2024, or, if earlier, the date on which White Lion has purchased the maximum number of shares of Nukkleus Common Stock provided under the White Lion Agreement, in each case on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the White Lion Agreement. White Lion’s purchase price will be 96% of the dollar- volume weighted average price of Nukkleus common stock over the two consecutive trading days immediately following receipt of Nukkleus’s notice of its intent to make a draw.

 

During the term of the White Lion Agreement, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Nukkleus may draw up to the lesser of (i) the number of shares of Nukkleus common stock which would result in beneficial ownership by White Lion of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Nukkleus common stock, (ii) the number of shares of Nukkleus common stock equal to 30% of the average daily trading volume of Nukkleus common stock over the five consecutive trading days immediately following the notice date, or (iii) the number of Nukkleus common stock obtained by dividing $1,500,000 by the closing sale price of Nukkleus common stock on the notice date.

 

Nukkleus is not entitled to draw on the White Lion Agreement if the closing sale price of Nukkleus common stock on the trading day immediately preceding the notice date is less than $1.00 (following the reverse stock split proposed in connection with the closing of the Business Combination and described in Nukkleus’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 23, 2022, but adjusted for any other reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split or other similar transaction). Nukkleus is not entitled to draw on the White Lion Agreement unless each of the following additional conditions is satisfied: (i) each of Nukkleus’s representations and warranties set forth in the White Lion Agreement is true and correct (subject to qualifications as to materiality set forth therein) in all respects as of such time; (ii) a registration statement is and remains effective for the resale of securities in connection with the White Lion Agreement; (iii) the trading of the Company’s common stock shall not have been suspended by the SEC, the applicable trading market or FINRA, or otherwise halted for any reason; (iv) the Company shall have complied with its obligations and shall not otherwise be in breach or default of any agreement set forth in the White Lion Agreement; (v) no statute, regulation, order, guidance, decree, writ, ruling or injunction shall have been enacted, entered, promulgated, threatened or endorsed by any federal, state, local or foreign court or governmental authority of competent jurisdiction, including, without limitation, the SEC, which prohibits the consummation of or which would materially modify or delay any of the transactions contemplated by the White Lion Agreement; (vi) all reports, schedules, registrations, forms, statements, information and other documents required to have been filed by us with the SEC pursuant to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act of 1934 (other than Forms 8-K) shall have been filed with the SEC within the applicable time periods prescribed for such filings; (vii) to the extent the issuance of the put shares requires shareholder approval under the listing rules of the applicable national exchange or principal quotation system for the Nukkleus common stock, the Company has or will seek such approval; and (viii) certain other conditions as set forth in the White Lion Agreement.

 

In addition to the shares to be issued under the White Lion Agreement, Nukkleus will include in its registration statement additional shares of Nukkleus common stock in the amount of $750,000 being issued to White Lion in connection with the execution of the White Lion Agreement.

White Lion Registration Rights Agreement

 

In connection with the Company’s entry into the White Lion Agreement, Nukkleus entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with White Lion (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, Nukkleus has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to file a registration statement under the Securities Act registering the resale of the shares sold under the White Lion Agreement within sixty days of the closing of the Business Combination. The Registration Rights Agreement also provides that Nukkleus is required to use its commercially reasonable efforts to keep the registration effective and to prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements if the foregoing registration statement is not then in effect, and the Company proposes to file certain types of registration statements under as may be necessary to keep the registration statement effective.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the terms and conditions of the White Lion Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the White Lion Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement, which are filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2, respectively, and incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.
