Item 8.01. Other Events.
On November 27, 2012, BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (the Company) entered into a placement agency agreement (the Placement Agency Agreement) with William Blair & Company, L.L.C., as sole lead placement agent (Blair), and JMP Securities LLC and Roth Capital Partners, LLC, as co-placement agents (collectively with Blair, the Placement Agents) relating to the Companys registered direct offering, issuance and sale (the Offering) of an aggregate of (i) 6,791,887 shares (the Common Shares) of the Companys common stock, par value $.001 per share (the Common Stock), and (ii) 2,709,300 shares (the Preferred Shares and, together with the Common Shares, the Shares) of preferred stock that the Company has designated as Series A Non-Voting Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $.001 per share (the Series A Preferred Stock). All of the Common Shares and Preferred Shares are being sold by the Company. The Placement Agency Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and the Placement Agents. Brinson Patrick Securities Corporation and Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. acted as financial advisors to the Company in connection with the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, on November 27, 2012, the Company also entered into definitive subscription agreements with certain institutional investors, including existing stockholders of the Company (the Investors) relating to the Offering. The Investors have agreed to purchase the Common Shares and Preferred Shares for a negotiated price of $4.21 per share.
The Series A Preferred is being used in the Offering as an accommodation to those Investors who desire to not own in excess of 9.98% of BDSIs outstanding voting securities following the Offering. The powers, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions applicable to the Series A Preferred Stock are set forth in the Certificate of Designation of the Series A Preferred Stock (the Certificate of Designation), to be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware prior to the closing of the Offering. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of Common Stock at any time at the option of the holder, provided that the holder will be prohibited from converting Series A Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock if, as a result of such conversion, the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own more than 9.98% of the total number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding. In the event of the Companys liquidation, dissolution or winding up, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will receive a payment equal to $0.001 per share of Series A Preferred Stock before any proceeds are distributed to the holders of Common Stock. After the payment of this preferential amount, and subject to the rights of holders of any class or series of capital stock hereafter created specifically ranking by its terms senior to the Series A Preferred Stock, holders of Series A Preferred Stock will participate ratably in the distribution of any remaining assets with the Common Stock and any other class or series of our capital stock hereafter created that participates with the common stock in such distributions. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock will generally have no voting rights, except as required by law and except that the consent of holders of a majority of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock will be required to amend the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred Stock will not be entitled to receive any dividends, unless and until specifically declared by the Companys board of directors.
The securities being sold in the Offering will be issued pursuant to a shelf registration statement, as amended, that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which became effective on February 24, 2012 (File No. 333-179257). A preliminary and final prospectus supplement relating to the Offering will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The closing of the Offering is expected to take place on December 3, 2012, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
