On March 28, 2022, Avalon GloboCare Corp. (the “Company”) entered into Securities Purchase Agreement with an accredited investor providing for the sale by the Company to the investor of a Convertible Note in the amount of $4,000,000 (the “2022 Convertible Note”). In addition to the 2022 Convertible Note, the investor will also receive a Stock Purchase Warrant (the “2022 Warrant”) to acquire an aggregate of 1,333,333 shares of common stock. The 2022 Warrants will be exercisable for five years at an exercise price of $1.25. The financing closed with respect to $2,669,521.60 of the financing on April 15, 2022. The Company and the investor expect to close on the balance of the $4,000,000 in funding no later than April 30, 2022. As a result of the first closing, the Company issued the investor a 2022 Convertible Note in the principal amount of $2,669,521.60 and a 2022 Warrant to acquire 889,840 shares of common stock.
The 2022 Convertible Note bears interest at 1% per annum payable at maturity and matures ten years from issuance. The investor may elect to convert all or part of the 2022 Convertible Note, plus accrued interest, at any time into shares of common stock of the Company at a conversion price equal to 95% of the average of the highest three trading prices for the common stock during the 20-trading day period ending one trading day prior to the conversion date but in no event will the conversion price be lower than $0.75 per share.
The investor agreed to restrict its ability to convert the 2022 Convertible Note and exercise the 2022 Warrants and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by the investor after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. Further, the investor agreed to not sell or transfer any or all of the shares of common stock underlying the 2022 Convertible Note or the 2022 Warrant for a period of 90 days beginning on the closing date (the “Lock-Up Period”). Following the expiration of the Lock-Up Period, the investor has agreed to limit its sale or transfer of such shares of common stock to a maximum monthly amount equal to 20% of the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the 2022 Convertible Note. The Company agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to file a registration statement on Form S-3 (or other appropriate form) providing for the resale by the investor of the shares of common stock underlying the 2022 Convertible Note and the 2022 Warrant.
The offer, sale and issuance of the above securities was made to an accredited investor and the Company relied upon the exemptions contained in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated there under with regard to the sale. No advertising or general solicitation was employed in offering the securities. The offer and sale was made to an accredited investor and transfer of the 2022 Convertible Note, 2022 Warrant and the common stock issuable thereunder was and will be restricted by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
