DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

The following description of common stock and preferred stock summarizes the material terms and provisions of the common stock and preferred stock that we may offer under this prospectus, but is not complete. For the complete terms of our common stock and preferred stock, please refer to our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, as amended, any certificates of designation for our preferred stock, and our restated bylaws, as amended, as may be amended from time to time. While the terms we have summarized below will apply generally to any future common stock or preferred stock that we may offer, we will describe the specific terms of any series of preferred stock in more detail in the applicable prospectus supplement. If we so indicate in a prospectus supplement, the terms of any preferred stock we offer under that prospectus supplement may differ from the terms we describe below.

 

We have authorized 201,000,000 shares of capital stock, par value $0.001 per share, of which 200,000,000 are shares of common stock and 1,000,000 are shares of “blank check” preferred stock, of which 200 are authorized as Series A Preferred Stock, 600 are authorized as Series B Preferred Stock, 4,200 are authorized as Series C Preferred Stock, 1,400 are authorized as Series D Preferred Stock, 1,000 are authorized as Series E Preferred Stock and 200,000 are authorized as Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock. As of August 27, 2020, there were 29,803,614 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock issued and outstanding and no shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, Series E Convertible Preferred Stock or Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. The authorized and unissued shares of common stock and the authorized and undesignated shares of preferred stock are available for issuance without further action by our stockholders, unless such action is required by applicable law or the rules of any stock exchange on which our securities may be listed. Unless approval of our stockholders is so required, our board of directors does not intend to seek stockholder approval for the issuance and sale of our common stock or preferred stock.

 

Common Stock

 

The holders of common stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters to be voted upon by stockholders. Holders of our common stock are entitled to receive ratably dividends as may be declared by the board of directors out of funds legally available for that purpose. We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future but intend to retain our capital resources for reinvestment in our business. Any future disposition of dividends will be at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend upon, among other things, our future earnings, operating and financial condition, capital requirements, and other factors.

 

Each share of common stock entitles the holder to one vote, either in person or by proxy, at meetings of stockholders. The holders are not permitted to vote their shares cumulatively. Accordingly, the stockholders of our common stock who hold, in the aggregate, more than fifty percent of the total voting rights can elect all of our directors and, in such event, the holders of the remaining minority shares will not be able to elect any of such directors. The vote of the holders of a majority of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote thereon is sufficient to authorize, affirm, ratify or consent to such act or action, except as otherwise provided by law.

 

Holders of our common stock have no preemptive rights or other subscription rights, conversion rights, redemption or sinking fund provisions. Subject to the rights of the holders of our preferred stock, upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, the holders of our common stock will be entitled to share ratably in the net assets legally available for distribution to stockholders after the payment of all of our debts and other liabilities.

 

The transfer agent and registrar for our common stock is Action Stock Transfer Corporation. The transfer agent’s address is 2469 East Fort Union Blvd., Suite 214, Salt Lake City, UT 84121. Our common stock is listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “BSGM.”

 

Preferred Stock

 

The board of directors is authorized, subject to any limitations prescribed by law, without further vote or action by the stockholders, to issue from time to time shares of preferred stock in one or more series. Each such series of preferred stock shall have such number of shares, designations, preferences, voting powers, qualifications, and special or relative rights or privileges as shall be determined by the board of directors, which may include, among others, dividend rights, voting rights, liquidation preferences, conversion rights and preemptive rights. Issuance of preferred stock by our board of directors may result in such shares having dividend and/or liquidation preferences senior to the rights of the holders of our common stock and could dilute the voting rights of the holders of our common stock.

 

 

 

Prior to the issuance of shares of each series of preferred stock, the board of directors is required by the Delaware General Corporation Law and our certificate of incorporation to adopt resolutions and file a certificate of designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The certificate of designation fixes for each class or series the designations, powers, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions, including, but not limited to, some or all of the following:

 

 

the number of shares constituting that series and the distinctive designation of that series, which number may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares then outstanding) from time to time by action of the board of directors;

 

 

the dividend rate and the manner and frequency of payment of dividends on the shares of that series, whether dividends will be cumulative, and, if so, from which date;

 

 

whether that series will have voting rights, in addition to any voting rights provided by law, and, if so, the terms of such voting rights;

 

 

whether that series will have conversion privileges, and, if so, the terms and conditions of such conversion, including provision for adjustment of the conversion rate in such events as the board of directors may determine;

 

 

whether or not the shares of that series will be redeemable, and, if so, the terms and conditions of such redemption;

 

 

whether that series will have a sinking fund for the redemption or purchase of shares of that series, and, if so, the terms and amount of such sinking fund;

 

 

whether or not the shares of the series will have priority over or be on a parity with or be junior to the shares of any other series or class in any respect;

 

 

the rights of the shares of that series in the event of voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the corporation, and the relative rights or priority, if any, of payment of shares of that series; and

 

 

any other relative rights, preferences and limitations of that series.

 

Once designated by our board of directors, each series of preferred stock may have specific financial and other terms that will be described in a prospectus supplement. The description of the preferred stock that is set forth in any prospectus supplement is not complete without reference to the documents that govern the preferred stock. These include our certificate of incorporation and any certificates of designation that our board of directors may adopt.

 

All shares of preferred stock offered hereby will, when issued, be fully paid and nonassessable, including shares of preferred stock issued upon the exercise of preferred stock warrants or subscription rights, if any.

 

Although our board of directors has no intention at the present time of doing so, it could authorize the issuance of a series of preferred stock that could, depending on the terms of such series, impede the completion of a merger, tender offer or other takeover attempt.

 

Delaware Anti-Takeover Law, Provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws and Stockholder Rights Agreement

 

Delaware Anti-Takeover Law

 

We are subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law. Section 203 generally prohibits a public Delaware corporation from engaging in a “business combination” with an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years after the date of the transaction in which the person became an interested stockholder, unless:

 

 

prior to the date of the transaction, the board of directors of the corporation approved either the business combination or the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder;

 

 

 

the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced, excluding for purposes of determining the number of shares outstanding (i) shares owned by persons who are directors and also officers and (ii) shares owned by employee stock plans in which employee participants do not have the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer; or

 

 

on or subsequent to the date of the transaction, the business combination is approved by the board and authorized at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, and not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock which is not owned by the interested stockholder.

 

 

 

Section 203 defines a business combination to include:

 

 

any merger or consolidation involving the corporation and the interested stockholder;

 

 

any sale, transfer, pledge or other disposition involving the interested stockholder of 10% or more of the assets of the corporation;

 

 

subject to exceptions, any transaction that results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder; or

 

 

the receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation.

 

In general, Section 203 defines an “interested stockholder” as any entity or person beneficially owning 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation and any entity or person affiliated with, or controlling, or controlled by, the entity or person. The term “owner” is broadly defined to include any person that, individually, with or through that person’s affiliates or associates, among other things, beneficially owns the stock, or has the right to acquire the stock, whether or not the right is immediately exercisable, under any agreement or understanding or upon the exercise of warrants or options or otherwise or has the right to vote the stock under any agreement or understanding, or has an agreement or understanding with the beneficial owner of the stock for the purpose of acquiring, holding, voting or disposing of the stock.

 

The restrictions in Section 203 do not apply to corporations that have elected, in the manner provided in Section 203, not to be subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law or, with certain exceptions, which do not have a class of voting stock that is listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws do not opt out of Section 203.

 

Section 203 could delay or prohibit mergers or other takeover or change in control attempts with respect to us and, accordingly, may discourage attempts to acquire us even though such a transaction may offer our stockholders the opportunity to sell their stock at a price above the prevailing market price.

 

Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws

 

Provisions of our certificate of incorporation and bylaws may delay or discourage transactions involving an actual or potential change in our control or change in our management, including transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares, or transactions that our stockholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests. Therefore, these provisions could adversely affect the price of our common stock. Among other things, our certificate of incorporation and bylaws:

 

 

permit our board of directors to issue up to 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, without further action by the stockholders, with any rights, preferences and privileges as they may designate, including the right to approve an acquisition or other change in control;

 

 

 

provide that the authorized number of directors may be changed only by a resolution adopted by a majority of the total number of authorized directors;

 

 

do not provide for cumulative voting rights (therefore allowing the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock entitled to vote in any election of directors to elect all of the directors standing for election, if they should so choose); and

 

 

provide advance notice provisions with which a stockholder who wishes to nominate a director or propose other business to be considered at a stockholder meeting must comply.

 

Stockholder Rights Agreement

 

On July 14, 2020, we entered into a stockholder rights agreement with Action Stock Transfer Corporation, as rights agent (the “Rights Agreement”), which entitles the holders of the rights to purchase from the Company 1/1,000th of a share of the Company’s Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock, $0.001 par value per share, at a purchase price of $50.00 per share, subject to certain adjustments (a “Right”), upon certain trigger events. In connection therewith, on July 14, 2020, the board of directors authorized 200,000 shares of Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock and it declared a dividend of one Right for each share of common stock of the Company outstanding as of July 27, 2020. Each 1/1,000th of a share of Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock will essentially be the economic equivalent of one share of our common stock. However, until a Right is exercised or exchanged in accordance with the provisions of the Rights Agreement, the holder thereof will have no rights as a stockholder of the Company, including, but not limited to, the right to vote or to receive dividends.

 

 

 

The Rights do not separate from the common stock unless one or both of the following conditions are met: a public announcement that a person or group becomes the beneficial owner of 12% or more of the Company’s outstanding common stock (including in the form of synthetic ownership through derivative positions) (such person, an “Acquiring Person”), or a tender or exchange offer is made which, if completed, would result in the bidder becoming an Acquiring Person.

 

In the event that any person or group of affiliated or associated persons becomes an Acquiring Person, each holder of a right, other than rights beneficially owned by the Acquiring Person (which will become void), will have the right to purchase, at the right’s exercise price, a number of shares of the Company’s common stock (or equivalent securities) having a market value of twice the right’s exercise price. The rights may be redeemed by the Company for $0.001 per right at any time until the first public announcement of the acquisition of beneficial ownership of 12% of the Company’s common stock.

 

The Rights expire upon the earliest to occur of (i) the close of business on July 13, 2021; (ii) the time at which the Rights are redeemed or exchanged pursuant to the Rights Agreement; and (iii) the time at which the Rights are terminated upon the closing of any merger or other acquisition transaction involving the Company pursuant to a merger or other acquisition agreement that has been approved by the Board prior to any person becoming an Acquiring Person.

 

The Rights have certain anti-takeover effects. The Rights may cause substantial dilution to a person or group of affiliated or associated persons that acquires beneficial ownership of 12% or more of the Company’s stock on terms not approved by the board of directors or takes other specified actions. As a result, the overall effect of the Rights may be to render more difficult or discourage any attempt to acquire us even if the acquisition may be favorable to the interests of our stockholders. Because the board of directors can redeem or exchange the Rights, the Rights should not interfere with a merger or other business combination approved by the board. We can make no assurances the rights plan will be effective in meeting its intended objectives, including to deter a change in control.

 

The description of our Series F Junior Participating Preferred Stock, which is contained in the Registration Statement on Form 8-A (File No. 001-38659) filed with the SEC on July 17, 2020, including any amendments or reports we file for purposes of updating that description, is incorporated herein by reference.
