Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 31, 2013, DelMar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into and closed a series of subscription agreements with accredited investors (the “Investors”), pursuant to which the Company sold an aggregate of 1,904,375 Units, each Unit consisting of one share of common stock and one five-year warrant (the “Investor Warrants”) to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.80, for a purchase price of $0.80 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,523,500 (the “Private Offering”). The exercise price of the Investor Warrants is subject to adjustment in the event that the Company sells common stock at a price lower than the exercise price, subject to certain exceptions. The Investor Warrants are redeemable by the Company at a price of $0.001 per Warrant at any time subject to the conditions that (i) the Company’s common stock has traded for twenty (20) consecutive trading days with a closing price of at least $1.60 per share with an average trading volume of 50,000 shares per day and (ii) the underlying shares of common stock are registered.
The Company retained Charles Vista, LLC (the “Placement Agent”) as the placement agent for the Private Offering and paid the Placement Agent a cash fee of $152,350 (equal to 10% of the gross proceeds), and a non-accountable expense allowance of $45,705 (equal to 3% of the gross proceeds). In addition, the Company issued to the Placement Agent five-year warrants to purchase 761,750 shares of common stock (equal to 20% of the shares of common stock (i) included as part of the Units sold in the Private Offering and (ii) issuable upon exercise of the Investor Warrants) at an exercise price of $0.80, exercisable on a cash or cashless basis.
In connection with the Private Offering, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with the Investors, pursuant to which the Company agreed to file a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) registering for resale all shares of common stock (a) included in the Units; and (b) issuable upon exercise of the Investor Warrants, no later than 90 days after the completion of the Private Offering (the “Filing Deadline”) and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Registration Statement to become effective within 180 days of the Filing Deadline. The Company agreed to use commercially reasonably efforts to keep the Registration Statement effective while the Investor Warrants are outstanding.
In connection with the foregoing, the Company relied upon the exemption from securities registration provided by Section 4(2) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended for transactions not involving a public offering.
