|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On November 9, 2017, Precipio, Inc. (the “Company”) completed its previously announced sale of 2,748 units, each consisting of one share of the Company’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Preferred Stock”), convertible into a number of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), equal to $1,000 divided by $1.40, and warrants to purchase up to 1,962,857 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $1.63 per share (the “Warrants”) at a combined offering price of $1,000 per unit, in a registered direct offering (the “Offering”). The Offering was completed pursuant to the terms of a placement agency agreement dated as of November 2, 2017 (the “Placement Agreement”) between the Company and Aegis Capital Corp. (the “Placement Agent”).
The net proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the units were approximately $2.4 million, after deducting the placement agent fee and estimated offering expenses. The Company currently intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes, including, but not limited to, growth of the Company’s sales force and business development team, progression of the Company’s product development and working capital.
The Offering was made pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on FormS-3 (FileNo. 333-201907) filed on February 6, 2015 and declared effective by the SEC on February 13, 2015 and a related prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”).
In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company and the Placement Agent entered into an Amendment to the Placement Agreement, dated November 9, 2017 (the “Amendment”), and amended the form of Warrant previously filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Current Report on Form8-K filed with the Commission on November 3, 2017. The form of Warrant provides that the anti-dilution protection set forth therein will not become operative until the Company has obtained approval of its stockholders of the Offering, including issuances of Common Stock in excess of the maximum number of shares issuable under the rules and regulations of the Nasdaq Capital Market. The foregoing is only a brief description of the material terms of the Amendment and the Warrants, and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment and the form of Warrant that are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 4.1, respectively, to this Current Report on Form8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
As a result of the issuance of the Preferred Stock and the Warrants in the Offering, the conversion price of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock was automatically adjusted from $2.50 per share to $1.40 per share and the exercise price of the warrants to purchase Common Stock issued by the Company in its August 2017 underwritten public offering was automatically adjusted from $3.00 per share to $1.40 per share.

The terms of the Series C Preferred Stock are set forth in the Certificate of Designation which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
