Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 17, 2021, Evofem Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (the “Underwriter”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell, in a firm commitment public offering 50,000,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and accompanying common warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 50,000,000 shares of its common stock, as well as up to 7,500,000 additional shares of its common stock and/or accompanying common warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 7,500,000 shares of its common stock that may be purchased by the Underwriter pursuant to a 30-day option granted to the Underwriter by the Company (the “Offering”). Each share of common stock is being sold together with a common warrant to purchase one share of common stock, at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. Such common warrants are immediately exercisable and will expire two years from the date of issuance. There is not expected to be any trading market for the common warrants issued in the Offering. The combined public offering price of each share of common stock and accompanying common warrant sold in the Offering will be $1.00, and the combined price of each share of common stock and accompanying common warrant purchased by the Underwriter from the Company will be $0.94. The net proceeds from the Offering, after deducting the Underwriter’s discounts and commissions and other estimated offering expenses payable by the Company and excluding the net proceeds, if any, from the exercise of the common warrants, are expected to be approximately $46.7 million (or approximately $53.8 million if the Underwriter exercises its option to purchase additional securities in full).
The offering is expected to close on or about May 20, 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
Any securities offered and sold in the Offering (including the shares of common stock issuable from time to time upon exercise of the common warrants) will be issued pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No.: 333-253881) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 4, 2021 and declared effective on March 11, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”), as supplemented by the preliminary prospectus supplement dated May 17, 2021 relating to the Offering and filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021 and a final prospectus supplement dated May 17, 2021.
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company, customary indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter and other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of the Underwriting Agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Underwriting Agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Underwriting Agreement.
We have also agreed to pay the underwriter (i) $50,000 non-accountable expenses, (ii) reimbursement of up to $100,000 for fees and expenses of legal counsel and other out-of-pocket expenses of the underwriter, (iii) $15,950 for the clearing expenses of the underwriter in connection with this offering and (iv) a commission of 6% of the gross exercise price paid upon exercise of each common warrant.
The Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto, and the description of the terms of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit. The form of the common warrant is filed as Exhibit 4.1 hereto, and the description of the terms of the common warrants is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
