Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 9, 2021, Surgalign Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with certain institutional accredited investors (the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell in a registered direct offering priced at-the-market (the “Offering”) an aggregate of (i) 28,985,508 shares (the “Shares”) of its common stock and (ii) warrants exercisable for an aggregate of 28,985,508 shares of Company common stock (the “Warrants” and, together with the Shares, the “Securities”), at a combined purchase price of $1.725 per Share and related Warrant. The Warrants have an exercise price equal to $1.725 per share, are exercisable immediately upon issuance and will expire three years from the issuance date. The Offering is expected to close on or about June 14, 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
The Company is expected to receive gross proceeds of approximately $50.0 million in connection with the Offering, before deducting placement agent fees and related offering expenses. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, including preparation for approval, utilization and ongoing development of its digital surgical guidance system.
A holder (together with its affiliates) may not exercise any portion of the Warrant to the extent that the holder would own more than 4.99% (or, at the holder’s option upon issuance, 9.99%) of the Company’s outstanding common stock immediately after exercise. However, upon at least 61 days’ prior notice from the holder to the Company, a holder with a 4.99% ownership blocker may increase the amount of ownership of outstanding common stock after exercising the holder’s Warrant up to 9.99% of the number of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of the Warrant.
If, at the time a holder exercises its Warrants, a registration statement registering the issuance of the shares of Company common stock underlying the Warrants under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, is not then effective or available for the issuance of such shares, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon exercise of a Warrant in payment of the aggregate exercise price, the holder may elect instead to receive upon such exercise (either in whole or in part) the net number of shares of Company common stock determined according to a formula set forth in the Warrants.
In the event of a fundamental transaction, as described in the Warrants and generally including any reorganization, recapitalization or reclassification of the Company’s common stock, the sale, transfer or other disposition of all or substantially all of the Company’s properties or assets, the Company’s consolidation or merger with or into another person, the acquisition of more than 50% of the Company’s outstanding common stock, or any person or group becoming the beneficial owner of 50% of the voting power represented by the Company’s outstanding common stock, the holders of the Warrants will be entitled to receive upon exercise of the Warrants the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property that the holders would have received had they exercised the Warrants immediately prior to such fundamental transaction. Additionally, as more fully described in the Warrant, in the event of certain fundamental transactions, the holders of Warrants will be entitled to receive consideration in an amount equal to the Black Scholes value of the Warrants on the date of consummation of such transaction.
There is no trading market available for the Warrants on any securities exchange or nationally recognized trading system. The Company does not intend to list the Warrants on any securities exchange or nationally recognized trading system.
The Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants and closing conditions and customary indemnification rights and obligations of the parties. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company has also agreed to be subject to a lock-up period of 60 days following the closing date of the Offering in respect of certain equity issuances and a one year lock-up period in respect of certain issuances of securities that are subject to a price reset based on the trading prices of the Company’s common stock or upon a specified or contingent event in the future, in each case subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Agreement.
Pursuant to an Engagement Letter (as amended, the “Engagement Letter”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (the “Placement Agent”), the Company agreed to pay the Placement Agent a cash fee equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds received in the Offering and a management fee equal to 1.0% of the gross proceeds received in the Offering. Upon any exercise of the Warrants issued in the Offering for cash, we have agreed to pay the Placement Agent (i) a total cash fee equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants and (ii) a management fee equal to 1.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants. The Company also agreed to reimburse certain expenses of the Placement Agent, including payment of $35,000 for non-accountable expenses, up to $100,000 for fees and expenses of legal counsel and other out-of-pocket expenses and $15,950 for clearing fees. The Company has also agreed to pay the Placement Agent, subject to certain exceptions, a tail fee equal to the cash and warrant compensation in the Offering, if any investor, who was contacted or introduced to the Company by the Placement Agent during the term of its engagement or introduced to the Company by the Placement Agent during the term of its engagement, provides the Company with capital in any public or private offering or other financing or capital raising transaction during the 12-month period following the termination or expiration of the Engagement Letter. In addition, the Company has granted a right of first refusal to the Placement Agent pursuant to which it has the right to act as the exclusive advisor, manager or underwriter or agent, as applicable, if the Company or its subsidiaries sell or acquire a business, finance any indebtedness using an agent, or raise capital through a public or private offering of equity or debt securities at any time prior to the 9-month anniversary of the consummation date of this offering.
Also pursuant to the Engagement Letter, the Company, in connection with the Offering, agreed to issue the Placement Agent or its designees warrants (the “Placement Agent Warrants”) to purchase an aggregate of up to 1,739,130 shares of its common stock (which represents 6% of the Shares sold to Purchasers in the Offering). The Placement Agent Warrants will have substantially the same terms as the Warrants described above, except that the Placement Agent Warrants will have an exercise price of $2.15625 per share (representing 125% of the public Offering price).
The form of Warrant, form of Placement Agent Warrant and the Agreement are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 10.1, respectively, and are incorporated by reference into this Current Report on Form 8-K. The foregoing description of such documents is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text thereof.
