Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On October 22, 2021, NeuroMetrix, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. (“Ladenburg”) with respect to an at-the-market offering program, under which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time at its sole discretion, shares of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate offering price of up to $25,000,000 (the “Placement Shares”) through Ladenburg as its sales agent.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Sales Agreement, Ladenburg may sell the Placement Shares by any method permitted by law deemed to be an “at the market” offering as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including, without limitation, sales made by means of ordinary brokers’ transactions on The Nasdaq Capital Market or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, in block transactions, or as otherwise directed by the Company. Ladenburg’s obligations to sell shares under the Sales Agreement are subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, including the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-3 filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 22, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”). Ladenburg will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Placement Shares from time to time, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). The Company will pay Ladenburg a commission of up to three percent (3.0%) of the gross sales proceeds of any Placement Shares sold through Ladenburg under the Sales Agreement, and also has provided Ladenburg with customary indemnification and contribution rights. In addition, the Company has agreed to reimburse certain legal expenses and filing fees incurred by Ladenburg in connection with the Offering up to a maximum of $40,000 plus certain ongoing disbursements of its legal counsel up to $4,000 per calendar quarter.
The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Common Stock under the Sales Agreement. The offering of Placement Shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all Placement Shares subject to the Sales Agreement, or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement in accordance with its terms.
The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, which is incorporated herein by reference.
Any shares sold under the Sales Agreement will be issued pursuant to the Registration Statement and the prospectus relating to the Sales Agreement that forms a part of such Registration Statement, following such time as the Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC. This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation, or sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
