Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 14, 2021, AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an institutional accredited investor (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Investor committed to purchase up to $10,000,000 of the Company’s common stock (the “Financing”). Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
Pursuant to the Financing, upon filing and effectiveness of a Registration Statement on Form S-1, and provided that certain other closing conditions are met, the Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to direct the Investor to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Put Shares”) as follows: (i) in a minimum amount of not less than $10,000.00 and (ii) in a maximum amount of $250,000.00; provided, however, that the number of Put Shares that the Company may direct the Investor to purchase shall not exceed 300% of the Average Daily Trading Volume or the maximum amount, unless waived in writing by the Investor, in its sole discretion.
At any time, and from time to time, during the term of the Purchase Agreement (the “Commitment Period”), the Company may deliver a notice to Investor (the “Put Notice”) of its election to direct the Investor to purchase Put Shares, and the Company shall deliver such Put Shares to Investor via DWAC within two trading days thereafter. The Purchase Price of the Put Shares shall be 87.5% of the lowest traded price (as reported by Bloomberg Finance L.P.) during the ten trading days immediately following the date the Investor receives the Put Shares via DWAC associated with the applicable Put Notice (the “Valuation Period”). The closing of a Put Notice shall occur within one trading day following the end of the respective Valuation Period, whereby (i) the Investor shall deliver the investment amount to the Company by wire transfer of immediately available funds and (ii) the Investor shall return surplus Put Shares if the value of the Put Shares delivered to the Investor causes the Company to exceed the maximum commitment amount. The Company shall not deliver another Put Notice to the Investor within ten trading days of a prior Put Notice.
The right of the Company to issue and sell the Put Shares to the Investor is subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including, but not limited to, (i) an effective Registration Statement on Form S-1 for resale by Investor of the Put Shares, (ii) accuracy of the Company’s representations and warranties, (iii) the Company’s performance under the Purchase Agreement in all material respects, (iv) no suspension of trading or delisting of the Company’s common stock, (v) limitation of the Investor’s beneficial ownership to no more than 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, (vi) the Company maintaining its DWAC-eligible status, (vii) the Company maintaining a sufficient share reserve, and (viii) the minimum pricing for the Put Shares must exceed $0.01.
Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, by May 30, 2021, the Company must file a Registration Statement which relates to the resale by Investor of the Put Shares.
The foregoing summary description of the terms of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
