PROSPECTUS SUPPLEMENT SUMMARY

 

This summary highlights selected information about us, this offering and information appearing elsewhere in this prospectus supplement, in the accompanying prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein and therein. This summary is not complete and does not contain all the information you should consider before investing in our securities pursuant to this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus.

Overview

 

BioSig Technologies, Inc.

 

We are a medical technology company commercializing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve signal fidelity and uncover the full range of ECG and intra-cardiac signals. Our initial emphasis is on providing intracardiac signal information to electrophysiologists during electrophysiology (“EP”) studies and cardiac catheter ablation procedures. Cardiac catheter ablation is a procedure that involves delivery of energy through the tip of a catheter that scars or destroys heart tissue in order to correct heart rhythm disturbances. In August 2018, we received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) to market our PURE (Precise Uninterrupted Real-time evaluation of Electrograms) EP System.

 

The PURE EP™ System is a proprietary signal acquisition and processing technology. The device is a computerized system intended for acquiring, digitizing, amplifying, filtering, measuring and calculating, displaying, recording and storing of electrocardiographic and intracardiac signals for patients undergoing EP procedures in an EP laboratory under the supervision of licensed healthcare practitioners who are responsible for interpreting the data. The device aims to minimize noise and artifacts from cardiac recordings and acquire high-fidelity cardiac signals. Improving fidelity of acquired cardiac signals may potentially increase the diagnostic value of these signals, thereby possibly improving accuracy and efficiency of the EP studies and related procedures.

 

Our initial focus is on improving intracardiac signal acquisition and enhancing diagnostic information for catheter ablation procedures for complex and potentially life-threatening arrhythmias like AF, the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and VT, an arrhythmia evidenced by a fast heart rhythm originating from the lower chambers of the heart.

 

On February 18 and February 19, 2019, we conducted the first clinical cases with our PURE EP™ System. The observational patient cases were performed by Andrea Natale, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.H.R.S., F.E.S.C., Executive Medical Director, Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas. On April 16, 2019, we announced the completion of our second set of observational patient cases which were performed at Prisma Health at Greenville Health System in South Carolina which were performed by Andrew Brenyo, MD, FHRS. Dr. Brenyo used the PURE EP System during procedures on patients with ischemic ventricular tachycardias, AF, PVC and atypical flutters. On May 6, 2019, we announced the completion of our third set of observational patient cases at Indiana University under the leadership of Prof. John M. Miller, M.D. and Dr. Mithilesh K. Das, MBBS. Drs. Miller and Das used the PURE EP System during procedures on patients with atypical flutter, atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT), AF, SVT, PVC and a rare case of dual septal pathway. And, in August 2019, observational patient cases at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California were performed by Brett Andrew Gidney, M.D. The initial experience across these early evaluation centers showed the PURE EP™ System functions as designed with positive feedback from EP users about the improved signal detection and fidelity.

 

In November 2019, we commenced our first clinical study for the PURE EP System titled, “Novel Cardiac Signal Processing System for Electrophysiology Procedures (PURE EP 2.0 Study).” Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Research Foundation (TCARF) in Austin, Texas, is the first institution to conduct patient cases under the clinical study. On January 16, 2020, we announced installation of a PURE EP System at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, Florida. Mayo Clinic is the second institution to conduct patient cases under the same clinical study. To date, 56 patients have been enrolled in the study. On August 4, 2020, the Company announced the installation of a PURE EP System at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) as part of the expanding clinical study. On August 30, 2020, the early data from the PURE EP study is scheduled to be presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress. We intend to continue additional clinical external evaluation at a select number of other centers.

 

S-1

 

On September 15, 2020, a manuscript detailing early results of the Company’s machine learning efforts is scheduled to be presented during the Computing in Cardiology 2020 conference.

 

We have also conducted a total of twenty-four pre-clinical studies with the PURE EP System, twenty-one of which were conducted at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. We also conducted a pre-clinical study at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, New York with an emphasis on the VT model; and two pre-clinical studies at the University of Pennsylvania. We also intend to continue additional research studies with our technology at Mayo Clinic.

 

Leading up to a new Medical Device Regulation that was due to enter into full force in 2020, but has since been put on hold for one year, the European Notified Bodies were reporting delays in accepting and processing new applications throughout 2019. Given the potential issues or further delays as a result of the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic and our focus and priority on commercialization activities in the United States, we plan to commence audit preparation for the International Organization for Standardization (“ISO”) 13485 and Medical Device Single Audit Program certification with the expectation to proceed with the audit to obtain the ISO 13485 Certification and CE Mark in first half of 2021 and subsequently file for CE Mark in the second half of 2021.

 

While we presently do not have any paying customers, we have made preparations to commence sale of our initial product and are in active discussions with numerous accounts about the acquisition of the system. We anticipate our initial customers will be medical centers of excellence and other health care facilities that operate EP labs.

 

ViralClear Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

 

ViralClear Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“ViralClear”) is a majority-owned subsidiary of the Company formerly known as NeuroClear Technologies, Inc. This subsidiary was established November 2018 to pursue additional applications of the PURE EP™ signal processing technology outside of EP. In March 2020, NeuroClear Technologies, Inc. was renamed ViralClear and repurposed to develop Merimepodib a broad-spectrum anti-viral agent with potential to treat COVID-19. As of June 30, 2020, the Company retains 69.4%. ownership of ViralClear.

 

Currently, ViralClear is developing merimepodib (MMPD), a broad-spectrum, host-directed antiviral candidate acquired from Trek Therapeutics, PBC (“Trek”), a related party in March 2020, with activity against SARS-CoV-2 in Vero Cell tissue cultures. MMPD targets a host enzyme (IMPDH Inosine Mono Phosphate Dehydrogenase) required for guanine synthesis. Merimepodib is active against a broad spectrum of RNA and DNA viruses. More than 400 patients with chronic hepatitis C and with psoriasis received the drug in clinical trials conducted by Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (Vertex). In April 2020, ViralClear published pre-clinical data generated under a contract with Galveston National Laboratory at The University of Texas Medical Branch, a manuscript entitled, “The IMPDH inhibitor merimepodib suppresses SARS-COV-2 replication in vitro.” These in-vitro studies determined that merimepodib markedly decreased viral production. Additional data was published in F1000 Research that demonstrated merimepodib in combination with remdesivir decreases viral production of SARS-CoV-2 to undetectable levels in pre-clinical testing. The article was titled, “The IMPDH inhibitor merimepodib provided in combination with the adenosine analogue remdesivir reduces SARS-CoV-2 replication to undetectable levels in vitro.”

 

The Company is pursuing the development of this molecule for the treatment of COVID-19 through FDA-approved clinical trials that commenced in Q2 2020. In May 2020, the FDA cleared the Investigational New Drug Application to enable the Company to proceed its proposed Phase II study of merimepodib oral solution in adults with COVID-19 who are hospitalized and either require supplemental oxygen or are on non-invasive ventilation or high flow oxygen devices. The first clinical trial is currently enrolling patients at three Mayo Clinic sites (Phoenix, AZ, Jacksonville, FL, and Rochester, MN), Atlantic Health System in both Morristown, NJ and Summit, NJ, and St. David’s South Austin Medical Center. This phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will enroll between forty-one and eighty adult patients with advanced coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), who have a score of 3 or 4 on the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) 8-point ordinal scale and at least one of the following: fever, cough, sore throat, malaise, headache, muscle pain, shortness of breath at rest or with exertion, confusion or symptoms of severe lower respiratory symptoms. Half the patients will receive merimepodib or placebo. All patients will receive remdesivir. Based on our in vitro testing, we anticipate that merimepodib will enhance the response of COVID-19 patients being treated with remdesivir.

 

On June 22, 2020, we announced that ViralClear entered into an agreement with Catalent, Inc. to work on the development of a potential treatment for adults with advanced COVID-19. Under the terms of the agreement, Catalent will be developing two oral dosage forms of MMPD: a solution and a solid oral dosage form. ViralClear is also partnering with Albany Molecular Research Inc. for support in undertaking research to investigate the potential of merimepodib to fight SARS-CoV-2, either as a standalone treatment or in combination with other anti-viral agents or immune modulators.

On May 20, 2020, ViralClear and the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement, pursuant to which ViralClear agreed to sell in a private placement transaction an aggregate of 1,068,550 shares of ViralClear’s common stock at $10.00 per share, for an aggregate consideration of $10,685,500. This private placement closed on May 20, 2020.

 

Recent Developments

 

Impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

 

In December 2019, a strain of coronavirus was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China, and has spread globally, and on March 12, 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 to be a pandemic. In an effort to contain and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, many countries, including the United States, have imposed unprecedented restrictions on travel, quarantines, and other public health safety measures. Such government-imposed precautionary measures may have been relaxed in certain countries or states, but there is no assurance that more strict measures will be put in place again due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. The COVID-19 pandemic may adversely impact our business plan as our clinical studies may be delayed as hospitals in the impacted regions may shift their resources to patients affected by the disease. The rapidly evolving nature of the circumstances is such that it is impossible, at this stage, to determine the full and overall impact the COVID-19 pandemic may have, but it could disrupt production and cause delays in the supply and delivery of products used in our research and development efforts, adversely affect our employees, and disrupt our operations, all of which may have a material adverse effect on our business. In addition, the pandemic may have an adverse effect on the ability of regulatory bodies to grant approvals or supervise our candidates and products, may further divert the attention and efforts of the medical community to coping with the coronavirus and disrupt the marketplace in which we operate and may have a material adverse effects on our operations. 

 

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has created significant economic uncertainty and volatility in the credit and capital markets. Management plans to secure the necessary financing through the issue of new equity and/or the entering into of strategic partnership arrangements; however, there is no assurance that our management will be able to obtain such financing on reasonable terms or at all. A continuation or worsening of the levels of market disruption and volatility seen in the recent past could have an adverse effect on our ability to access capital and on the market price of our common stock, and we may not be able to successfully raise capital through the sale of our securities. If we are unsuccessful in commercializing our products or raising capital, we may need to reduce activities, curtail or cease operations.

 

S-3

 

In addition, a significant outbreak of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases could result in a widespread health crisis that could adversely affect the economies and financial markets worldwide, resulting in an economic downturn that could impact our business, financial condition and results of operations.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. Before deciding whether to invest in our securities, you should consider carefully the risks described below, together with other information in this prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus, the information and documents incorporated by reference. You should also consider the risks, uncertainties and assumptions discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” included in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and the subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and other reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission which are on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission and are incorporated herein by reference, and which may be amended, supplemented or superseded from time to time by other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the future. If any of these risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flow could be seriously harmed. This could cause the trading price of our common stock to decline, resulting in a loss of all or part of your investment. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us, or that we currently see as immaterial, may also harm our business. Please also read carefully the section below entitled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”

 

Risks Related to this Offering and our Common Stock

 

Although our shares of common stock are now listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market, we currently have a limited trading volume, which results in higher price volatility for, and reduced liquidity of, our common stock.

 

Although our shares of common stock are now listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “BSGM,” trading volume in our common stock has been limited and an active trading market for our shares of common stock may never develop or be maintained. The absence of an active trading market increases price volatility and reduces the liquidity of our common stock. As long as this condition continues, the sale of a significant number of shares of common stock at any particular time could be difficult to achieve at the market prices prevailing immediately before such shares are offered.

 

The common stock offered under this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus may be sold in “at-the-market” offerings, and investors who buy shares at different times will likely pay different prices.

 

Investors who purchase shares under this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus at different times will likely pay different prices, and so may experience different outcomes in their investment results. We will have discretion, subject to market demand, to vary the timing, prices, and numbers of shares sold, and there is no minimum or maximum sales price. Investors may experience declines in the value of their shares as a result of share sales made at prices lower than the prices they paid.

 

The actual number of shares we will issue under the sales agreement, at any one time or in total, is uncertain.

 

Subject to certain limitations in the sales agreement and compliance with applicable law, we have the discretion to deliver a sales notice to Jefferies at any time throughout the term of the sales agreement. The number of shares that are sold by Jefferies after delivering a sales notice will fluctuate based on the market price of shares of our common stock during the sales period and limits we set with Jefferies. Because the price per share of each share sold will fluctuate based on the market price of our common stock during the sales period, it is not possible at this stage to predict the number of shares that will ultimately be issued.

 

You may experience immediate substantial dilution in the book value per share of the common stock you purchase.

 

Because the price per share of our common stock being offered may be higher than the current book value per share of our common stock. Therefore, if you purchase shares of our common stock in this offering, your interest will be diluted to the extent of the difference between the price per share you pay and the net tangible book value per common share. Assuming that the sale of an aggregate amount of $45,000,000 of our common stock in this offering at an assumed offering price of $7.35 per share, which was the last reported sale price of our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on August 27, 2020, and based on our net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020, if you purchase common stock in this offering you will suffer substantial and immediate dilution of $5.10 per share in the net tangible book value of the common stock. The future exercise of outstanding options, warrants and certain convertible term loans will result in further dilution of your investment. See the section entitled “Dilution” below for a more detailed discussion of the dilution you will incur if you purchase shares of our common stock in this offering.

 

S-6

 

You may experience significant dilution as a result of future financings and the exercise of outstanding options or warrants.

 

In order to raise additional capital, we may in the future offer additional shares of our common stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for our common stock, including offerings pursuant to the accompanying prospectus. We cannot assure you that we will be able to sell shares or other securities in any other offering at a price per share that is equal to or greater than the price per share paid by investors in this offering, and investors purchasing shares or other securities in the future could have rights superior to existing stockholders. The price per share at which we sell additional shares of our common stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for our common stock in future transactions may be higher or lower than the price per share in this offering.

 

We will have broad discretion in the use of the net proceeds from this offering and may allocate the net proceeds from this offering in ways that you and other stockholders may not approve.

 

Our management will have broad discretion in the use of the net proceeds, including for any of the purposes described in the section entitled “Use of Proceeds,” and you will not have the opportunity as part of your investment decision to assess whether the net proceeds are being used appropriately. Because of the number and variability of factors that will determine our use of the net proceeds from this offering, their ultimate use may vary substantially from their currently intended use. The failure of our management to use these funds effectively could have a material adverse effect on our business and cause the market price of our common stock to decline. Pending their ultimate use, we intend to invest the net proceeds in short-term, investment-grade, interest-bearing instruments. These investments may not yield a favorable return to our stockholders.

 

If we sell additional equity or debt securities to fund our operations, it may impose restrictions on our business.

 

In order to raise additional funds to support our operations, we may sell additional equity or debt securities, which may impose restrictive covenants that adversely impact our business. The incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased fixed payment obligations and could also result in restrictive covenants, such as limitations on our ability to incur additional debt, limitations on our ability to acquire, sell or license intellectual property rights and other operating restrictions that could adversely impact our ability to conduct our business. If we are unable to expand our operations or otherwise capitalize on our business opportunities due to such restrictions, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely affected.

 

Future sales of our common stock in the public market or other financings could cause our stock price to fall.

 

Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market, the perception that these sales might occur or other financings, could depress the market price of our common stock and could impair our ability to raise capital through the sale of additional equity securities. A substantial majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock are, and all of the shares sold in this offering upon issuance will be, freely tradable without restriction or further registration under the Securities Act unless these shares are owned or purchased by “affiliates” as that term is defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act. In addition, shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding options, restricted stock units and shares reserved for future issuance under our incentive stock plan will be eligible for sale in the public market to the extent permitted by applicable vesting requirements and, in some cases, subject to compliance with the requirements of Rule 144. As a result, these shares can be freely sold in the public market upon issuance, subject to restrictions under the securities laws

 

If we cannot continue to satisfy the continuing listing criteria of The Nasdaq Capital Market, the exchange may subsequently delist our common stock.

 

NASDAQ requires us to meet certain financial, public float, bid price and liquidity standards on an ongoing basis in order to continue the listing of our common stock. Generally, we must maintain a minimum amount of stockholders equity and a minimum number of holders of our securities. If we fail to meet any of the continuing listing requirements, our common stock may be subject to delisting. If our common stock is delisted and we are not able to list our common stock on another national securities exchange, we expect our securities would be quoted on an over-the-counter market. If this were to occur, our stockholders could face significant material adverse consequences, including limited availability of market quotations for our common stock and reduced liquidity for the trading of our securities. In addition, we could experience a decreased ability to issue additional securities and obtain additional financing in the future. There can be no assurance that an active trading market for our common stock will develop or be sustained.

 

S-7

 

The market price for our common stock may fluctuate significantly, which could result in substantial losses by our investors.

 

The stock market in general, and Nasdaq in particular, as well as biotechnology companies, have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that have often been unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance of small companies. The market price of our common stock may fluctuate significantly in response to numerous factors, some of which are beyond our control, such as:

 

 

 

announcements of technological innovations, new products or product enhancements by us or others;

 

 

 

actual or anticipated quarterly increases or decreases in revenue, gross margin or earnings, and changes in our business, operations or prospects;

 

 

 

announcements of significant strategic partnerships, out-licensing, in-licensing, joint ventures, acquisitions or capital commitments by us or our competitors;

 

 

 

conditions or trends in the biotechnology industry;

 

 

 

changes in the economic performance or market valuations of other biotechnology companies;

 

 

 

general market conditions or domestic or international macroeconomic and geopolitical factors unrelated to our performance or financial condition;

 

 

 

purchase or sale of our common stock by stockholders, including executives and directors;

 

 

 

volatility and limitations in trading volumes of our common stock;

 

 

 

changes in our capital structure or dividend policy, future issuances of securities, sales or distributions of large blocks of our common stock by stockholders;

 

 

 

our cash position;

 

 

 

announcements and events surrounding financing efforts, including debt and equity securities;

 

 

 

changes in earnings estimates or recommendations by security analysts, if our common stock is covered by analysts;

 

 

 

the addition or departure of key personnel;

 

 

 

disputes and litigation related to intellectual property rights, proprietary rights, and contractual obligations;

 

 

 

changes in applicable laws, rules, regulations, or accounting practices and other dynamics; and

 

 

 

other events or factors, many of which may be out of our control.

 

These factors and any corresponding price fluctuations may materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock and result in substantial losses by our investors.

 

Further, the stock market in general, and the market for technology companies in particular, has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations in the past. Continued market fluctuations could result in extreme volatility in the price of our common stock, which could cause a decline in the value of our common stock.

 

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant financial market volatility and uncertainty in recent months. A continuation or worsening of the levels of market disruption and volatility seen in the recent past could have an adverse effect on our ability to access capital, on our business, results of operations and financial condition, and on the market price of our common stock.

 

S-8

 

Price volatility of our common stock might be worse if the trading volume of our common stock is low. In the past, following periods of market volatility, stockholders have often instituted securities class action litigation. If we were involved in securities litigation, it could have a substantial cost and divert resources and attention of management from our business, even if we are successful. Future sales of our common stock could also reduce the market price of such stock.

 

Moreover, the liquidity of our common stock is limited, not only in terms of the number of shares that can be bought and sold at a given price, but by delays in the timing of transactions and reduction in security analysts’ and the media’s coverage of us, if any. These factors may result in lower prices for our common stock than might otherwise be obtained and could also result in a larger spread between the bid and ask prices for our common stock. In addition, without a large float, our common stock is less liquid than the stock of companies with broader public ownership and, as a result, the trading prices of our common stock may be more volatile. In the absence of an active public trading market, an investor may be unable to liquidate its investment in our common stock. Trading of a relatively small volume of our common stock may have a greater impact on the trading price of our stock than would be the case if our public float were larger. We cannot predict the prices at which our common stock will trade in the future.

 

The stockholder rights plan adopted by our board of directors may impair an attempt to acquire control of BioSig.

 

On July 14, 2020, our board of directors adopted a stockholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) and declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right for each outstanding share of BioSig’s common stock to stockholders of record on July 27, 2020, and one right will be issued for each new share of common stock issued thereafter. Each right will initially trade with common stock, and will allow its holder to purchase from BioSig one one-thousandth of a share of Series F Junior Participating Preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, for an exercise price of $50.00, once the rights become exercisable. In the event that a person or group acquires beneficial ownership of 12% or more of BioSig’s then outstanding common stock, subject to certain exceptions, each right would entitle its holder (other than such person or members of such group) to purchase additional shares of BioSig’s common stock having a market value of two times the exercise price of the right. In addition, at any time after a person or group acquires 12% or more of BioSig’s outstanding common stock (unless such person or group acquires 50% or more), the Board may exchange one share of BioSig’s common stock for each outstanding right (other than rights owned by such person or group, which would have become void). The Rights Plan could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire control of BioSig or a large block of our common stock without the approval of our board of directors. The rights will expire on July 13, 2021, unless terminated earlier by our board of directors. 

 

Our stockholders may experience substantial dilution as a result of the conversion of outstanding convertible preferred stock, the exercise of options or warrants to purchase shares of our common stock, or upon exchange of the shares of ViralClear common stock into shares of our common stock.

 

As of August 27, 2020, we have outstanding options to purchase 3,603,455 shares of common stock and have reserved 2,967,355 shares of our common stock for further issuances pursuant to our 2012 Plan. In addition, as of August 27, 2020, we may be required to issue 38,428 shares of our common stock for issuance upon conversion of outstanding convertible Series C preferred stock, which includes accrued dividends as of August 27, 2020 and 1,632,626 shares of our common stock for issuance upon exercise of outstanding warrants.  Should all of these shares be issued, you would experience dilution in ownership of our common stock and the price of our common stock will decrease unless the value of our company increases by a corresponding amount.

 

Moreover, in the event that ViralClear common stock is not listed on a national securities exchange by October 31, 2020, or a change of control (as defined in the securities purchase agreement for ViralClear financings) of ViralClear occurs and the investors who participated in the ViralClear private placements completed in August through December of 2019, elects to exchange their shares of ViralClear common stock to our shares of common stock, subject to certain conditions as set forth in the respective securities purchase agreement, you would experience dilution in ownership of our common stock. Such investors’ shares of ViralClear common stock may be exchanged into up to 838,559 shares of our common stock.

 

S-9

 

The terms of our Series C Preferred Stock contain anti-dilution provisions that may result in the reduction of the conversion prices in the future.

 

The terms of our Series C Preferred Stock contain anti-dilution provisions, which provisions require the lowering of the conversion price to the purchase price of future offerings. If in the future we issue securities for less than the conversion of our Series C Preferred Stock then in effect, we will be required to further reduce the relevant conversion prices.  We may find it more difficult to raise additional equity capital while our Series C Preferred Stock are outstanding.

 

The interests of our controlling stockholders may not coincide with yours and such controlling stockholders may make decisions with which you may disagree.

 

As of August 27, 2020, three of our stockholders beneficially owned over 17.39% of our common stock. As a result, these stockholders may be able to influence the outcome of matters requiring stockholder approval, including the election of directors and approval of significant corporate transactions. In addition, this concentration of ownership may delay or prevent a change in control of our company and make some future transactions more difficult or impossible without the support of our controlling stockholders. The interests of our controlling stockholders may not coincide with our interests or the interests of other stockholders.

 

Risks Relating to ViralClear’s Business and Industry

 

We operate in a highly competitive industry.

 

The pharmaceutical market is highly competitive, it is subject to rapid technological change and is significantly affected by existing rival drugs and medical procedures, new product introductions and the market activities of other participants. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, academic institutions, governmental agencies and other public and private research organizations may pursue the research and development of technologies, drugs or other therapies. Our competitors may develop products more rapidly or more effectively than us. If our competitors are more successful in commercializing their products than us, their success could adversely affect our competitive position and harm our business prospects.

 

The competitive landscape of anti-coronavirus therapies has been rapidly developing since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in late 2019, with an increasing number of companies claiming to be investigating possible candidates. These drug candidates generally consist of therapeutics or vaccines. We believe it is likely that a combination of therapies will be used to effectively treat COVID-19, and the global footprint of the current pandemic will result in the need for multiple approved drugs to meet the needs of patients in different stages of the disease.

 

We are aware of approximately 350 possible therapeutic products of various modes of action and over 125 potential vaccines for COVID-19. In the therapeutic category, based on our knowledge, at least five other companies are developing direct antiviral agents with studies being conducted in U.S. sites (source: ClinicalTrials.gov), which include Gilead Sciences, which is currently participating in eight clinical studies with remdesivir in multiple clinical study sites in the United States and abroad, with the FDA having granted emergency use authorization to use remdesivir to treat adults and children hospitalized with severe COVID-19;Atea Pharmaceuticals; Fujifilm Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., which has begun one of the two Phase II clinical trials on April 17, 2020 for its drug candidate, favipiravir;Ansun Biopharma; and multiple sponsors, Eiger BioPharmaceuticals participating as a collaborator, actively recruiting for Phase III studies of interferons assessing their safety and efficacy in COVID-19 disease.

 

All of these therapeutic candidates are in different stages of clinical development. If we experience delayed regulatory approvals or disputed clinical claims, we may not have a commercial or clinical advantage over competitors’ products that we believe we currently possess. Moreover, many of the companies developing COVID-19 therapeutic products have significantly greater resources, experience and name recognition than we possess. Should another party be successful in producing a more efficacious therapeutic or a vaccine for COVID-19, such success could reduce the commercial opportunity for our antiviral candidate and could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and future prospects.

Risks Relating to COVID-19

 

The recent COVID-19 outbreak may adversely affect our business.

 

In December 2019, a strain of coronavirus was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, China, and has spread globally, resulting in government-imposed quarantines, travel restrictions and other public health safety measures. On March 12, 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 to be a pandemic, and efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 have intensified. The COVID-19 pandemic may adversely impact our business plan as our clinical studies may be delayed as hospitals in the impacted regions may shift their resources to patients affected by the disease. The rapidly evolving nature of the circumstances is such that it is impossible, at this stage, to determine the full and overall impact the COVID-19 pandemic may have, but it could disrupt production and cause delays in the supply and delivery of products used in our research and development efforts, adversely affect our employees, and disrupt our operations, all of which may have a material adverse effect on our business. In addition, the pandemic may have an adverse effect on the ability of regulatory bodies to grant approvals or supervise our candidates and products, may further divert the attention and efforts of the medical community to coping with the coronavirus and disrupt the marketplace in which we operate and may have a material adverse effects on our operations.

 

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has created significant economic uncertainty and volatility in the credit and capital markets. Management plans to secure the necessary financing through the issue of new equity and/or the entering into of strategic partnership arrangements; however, there is no assurance that our management will be able to obtain such financing on reasonable terms or at all. A continuation or worsening of the levels of market disruption and volatility seen in the recent past could have an adverse effect on our ability to access capital and on the market price of our common stock, and we may not be able to successfully raise capital through the sale of our securities. If we are unsuccessful in commercializing our products or raising capital, we may need to reduce activities, curtail or cease operations.

 

In addition, a significant outbreak of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases could result in a widespread health crisis that could adversely affect the economies and financial markets worldwide, resulting in an economic downturn that could impact our business, financial condition and results of operations.

DIVIDEND POLICY

 

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.

 

 

 

 

S-13

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We may issue and sell shares of our common stock having aggregate sales proceeds of up to $45,000,000 from time to time. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time. There can be no assurance that we will sell any shares under, or fully utilize, the sales agreement with Jefferies as a source of financing.

 

We currently intend to use the net proceeds from this offering to support commercialization and for working capital and general corporate purposes, including expansion of PURE EP commercialization plans and anticipated expansion of Merimepodib program. We do not currently have more specific plans or commitments with respect to the net proceeds from this offering and, accordingly, are unable to quantify the allocation of such proceeds among the various potential uses.

 

Investors will be relying on the judgment of our management, who will have broad discretion regarding the application of the proceeds of this offering. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures will depend upon numerous factors, including the amount of cash generated by our operations, the amount of competition and other operational factors. We may find it necessary or advisable to use portions of the proceeds from this offering for other purposes.

 

From time to time, we evaluate these and other factors and we anticipate continuing to make such evaluations to determine if the existing allocation of resources, including the proceeds of this offering, is being optimized. Circumstances that may give rise to a change in the use of proceeds include:

 

●     a change in development plan or strategy;

●     the addition of new products or applications;

●     technical delays;

●     delays or difficulties with our clinical trials;

●     negative results from our clinical trials;

●     difficulty obtaining U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval; and

●     the availability of other sources of cash including additional offerings, if any.

  

 

  

S-14

 

DILUTION

 

 If you invest in our common stock, your interest will be diluted immediately to the extent of the difference between the price per share you pay in this offering and the as adjusted net tangible book value per share of our common stock after this offering. Our net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020, was approximately $35.8 million, or $1.23 per share of common stock. Net tangible book value per share is determined by dividing our total tangible assets, less total liabilities, by the number of shares of our common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2020.

 

After giving effect to the assumed sale of shares of common stock in the aggregate amount of $45,000,000 at an assumed public offering price of $7.35 per share, the last reported sale price of our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on August 27, 2020, and after deducting the placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable by us, our net tangible book value as of June 30, 2020, would have been approximately $79.2 million, or approximately $2.25 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in as adjusted net tangible book value of $1.02 per share to our existing stockholders, and an immediate dilution of $5.10 per share to new investors purchasing our common stock in this offering at the assumed public offering price.

 

The following table illustrates this per share dilution.

 

Assumed offering price per share

          $ 7.35  
                 

Net tangible book value per share as of June 30, 2020

  $ 1.23          
                 

Increase in net tangible book value per share attributable to the offering

  $ 1.02          
                 

As adjusted net tangible book value per share as of June 30, 2020 after giving effect to the offering

          $ 2.25  
                 

Dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in the offering

          $ 5.10  

 

The as adjusted information is illustrative only and will adjust based on the actual price to the public, the actual number of shares sold and other terms of the offering determined at the time shares of common stock are sold pursuant to this prospectus. The as adjusted information assumes that all of our shares of common stock in the aggregate amount of $45,000,000 is sold at the assumed offering price of $7.35 per share, the last reported sale price of our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on August 27, 2020. The shares sold in this offering, if any, will be sold from time to time at various prices.

 

The discussion and table above are based on 29,126,663 shares of common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2020, and excludes the following potentially dilutive securities as of that date:

 

 

 

1,764,827 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of warrants outstanding with an exercise price ranging from $3.75 to $6.85 per share and having a weighted average exercise price of $5.15 per share;

 

 

 

3,732,705 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of options outstanding with exercise prices ranging from $2.96 to $10.49 and having a weighted average exercise price of $5.52 per share;

 

 

 

3,387,855 shares of common stock available for future issuance under the 2012 Plan

 

 

 

153,334 shares of common stock issuable from time to time after this offering upon the settlement of restricted stock units outstanding; and

 

 

 

38,084 shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of outstanding Series C preferred stock, including the payment of the dividends accrued on the Series C Preferred Stock in an aggregate of 10,082 shares of common stock at the conversion price of $6.69 per share and the stated value per share of $1,000.

 

To the extent that outstanding exercisable options or warrants are exercised, you may experience further dilution. In addition, we may choose to raise additional capital due to market conditions or strategic considerations even if we believe we have sufficient funds for our current or future operating plans. To the extent that we raise additional capital by issuing equity or convertible debt securities, your ownership will be further diluted.

 

S-15

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We have entered into a sales agreement with Jefferies, under which we may offer and sell up to $45,000,000 of our shares of common stock from time to time through Jefferies acting as agent. Sales of our shares of common stock, if any, under this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus will be made by any method that is deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act.

 

Each time we wish to issue and sell shares of common stock under the sales agreement, we will notify Jefferies of the number of shares to be issued, the dates on which such sales are anticipated to be made, any limitation on the number of shares to be sold in any one day and any minimum price below which sales may not be made. Once we have so instructed Jefferies, unless Jefferies declines to accept the terms of such notice, Jefferies has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell such shares up to the amount specified on such terms. The obligations of Jefferies under the sales agreement to sell our shares of common stock are subject to a number of conditions that we must meet. 

 

The settlement of sales of shares between us and Jefferies is generally anticipated to occur on the second trading day following the date on which the sale was made. Sales of our shares of common stock as contemplated in this prospectus supplement will be settled through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company or by such other means as we and Jefferies may agree upon. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in an escrow, trust or similar arrangement.

 

We will pay Jefferies a commission equal to 3.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds we receive from each sale of our shares of common stock. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time. In addition, we have agreed to reimburse Jefferies for the fees and disbursements of its counsel, payable upon execution of the sales agreement, in an amount not to exceed $50,000, in addition to certain ongoing disbursements of its legal counsel, unless we and Jefferies otherwise agree. We estimate that the total expenses for the offering, excluding any commissions or expense reimbursement payable to Jefferies under the terms of the sales agreement, will be approximately $177,500. The remaining sale proceeds, after deducting any other transaction fees, will equal our net proceeds from the sale of such shares.

 

Jefferies will provide written confirmation to us before the open on The Nasdaq Capital Market on the day following each day on which shares of common stock are sold under the sales agreement. Each confirmation will include the number of shares sold on that day, the aggregate gross proceeds of such sales and the proceeds to us.

 

In connection with the sale of the shares of common stock on our behalf, Jefferies will be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act, and the compensation of Jefferies will be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts. We have agreed to indemnify Jefferies against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. We have also agreed to contribute to payments Jefferies may be required to make in respect of such liabilities.

 

The offering of our shares of common stock pursuant to the sales agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all shares of common stock subject to the sales agreement and (ii) the termination of the sales agreement as permitted therein.

 

This summary of the material provisions of the sales agreement does not purport to be a complete statement of its terms and conditions. A copy of the sales agreement will be filed as an exhibit to a current report on Form 8-K filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, and incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement.

 

Jefferies and its affiliates may in the future provide various investment banking, commercial banking, financial advisory and other financial services for us and our affiliates, for which services they may in the future receive customary fees. In the course of its business, Jefferies may actively trade our securities for its own account or for the accounts of customers, and, accordingly, Jefferies may at any time hold long or short positions in such securities.

 

A prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus in electronic format may be made available on a website maintained by Jefferies, and Jefferies may distribute the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus electronically.

ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS

 

This prospectus is part of a registration statement on Form S-3 that we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission using a “shelf” registration process. Under this shelf process, we may, from time to time, sell any combination of the securities described in this prospectus in one or more offerings up to a total amount of $75,000,000.

 

This prospectus provides you with a general description of the securities we may offer. Each time we sell securities, we will provide a prospectus supplement that will contain specific information about the terms of that offering. We may also add, update or change in a prospectus supplement any information contained in this prospectus. To the extent any statement made in a prospectus supplement or a document incorporated by reference herein after the date hereof is inconsistent with the statements made in this prospectus, the statements made in this prospectus will be deemed modified or superseded by those made in the prospectus supplement or the incorporated document.

 

The prospectus supplement to be attached to the front of this prospectus may describe, as applicable: the terms of the securities offered; the public offering price; the price paid for the securities; net proceeds; and the other specific terms related to the offering of the securities.

 

You should only rely on the information contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus and any prospectus supplement or issuer free writing prospectus relating to a particular offering. No person has been authorized to give any information or make any representations in connection with this offering other than those contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, any accompanying prospectus supplement and any related issuer free writing prospectus in connection with the offering described herein and therein, and, if given or made, such information or representations must not be relied upon as having been authorized by us.

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

This summary provides an overview of selected information contained elsewhere or incorporated by reference in this prospectus and does not contain all of the information you should consider before investing in our securities. You should carefully read the prospectus, the information incorporated by reference and the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part in their entirety before investing in our securities, including the information discussed under “Risk Factors” in this prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference and our financial statements and related notes that are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. As used in this prospectus, unless the context otherwise indicates, the terms “we,” “our,” “us,” or “the Company” refer to BioSig Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its subsidiaries taken as a whole.

 

Overview

 

We are a development stage medical device company that is developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing technology platform to extract information from physiologic signals. Our initial emphasis is on providing intracardiac signal information to electrophysiologists during electrophysiology (“EP”) studies and cardiac catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (“AF”) and ventricular tachycardia (“VT”). Cardiac catheter ablation is a procedure that involves delivery of energy through the tip of a catheter that scars or destroys heart tissue in order to correct heart rhythm disturbances. In August 2018, we received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) to market our PURE (Precise Uninterrupted Real-time evaluation of Electrograms) EP System. The PURE EP™ System is a non-invasive computerized system intended for acquiring, digitizing, amplifying, filtering, measuring and calculating, displaying, recording and storing of electrocardiographic and intracardiac signals for patients undergoing EP procedures in an EP laboratory. The system is indicated for use under the supervision of licensed healthcare practitioners who are responsible for interpreting the data collected by the system. The PURE EP System aims to minimize noise and artifacts from cardiac recordings and acquire high-fidelity cardiac signals. Improving cardiac signals may potentially increase the diagnostic value of these signals, thereby possibly improving accuracy and efficiency of the EP studies and related procedures. The PURE EP System is intended to be used in addition to existing electrophysiology recorders. We believe that data provided by the PURE EP System will increase the workload ability and enhance the capabilities of the typical electrophysiology laboratory.

 

Our initial focus is on improving intracardiac signal acquisition and enhancing diagnostic information for catheter ablation procedures for complex and life-threatening arrhythmias like AF, the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and VT, an arrhythmia evidenced by a fast heart rhythm originating from the lower chambers of the heart. Our overall goal is to establish the PURE EP System as a new platform in the EP market. We believe that the PURE EP System and its signal processing tools will contribute to an increase in the number of procedures performed in each EP lab and possibly improved patient outcomes because we believe that the PURE EP System may have the following advantages over the EP recording systems currently available on the market:

 

 

An ability to provide precise, uninterrupted, real-time evaluations of electrograms;

 

 

Higher quality cardiac signal acquisition for accurate and more efficient electrophysiology studies and catheter ablation procedures to help reduce costs and length of procedures;

 

 

Reliable display of information to better determine precise ablation targets, strategy and end point of procedures with the objective of reducing the need for multiple procedures; and

 

 

It’s a device that can run in parallel with the existing EP lab equipment.

 

Implications of Being an Emerging Growth Company

 

As a company with less than $1.07 billion in revenue during our last fiscal year, we qualify as an “emerging growth company” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the “JOBS Act”) enacted in April 2012. An “emerging growth company” may take advantage of exemptions from some of the reporting requirements that are otherwise applicable to public companies. These exceptions include:

 

 

being permitted to present only two years of audited financial statements and only two years of related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in this prospectus;

 

 

not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as amended (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”);

 

 

reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports, proxy statements and registration statements; and

 

 

 

exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.

 

We may take advantage of these provisions until the last day of our fiscal year following the fifth anniversary of the closing of our initial public offering. However, if certain events occur prior to the end of such five-year period, including if we become a “large accelerated filer,” our annual gross revenue exceeds $1.07 billion or we issue more than $1.0 billion of non-convertible debt in any three-year period, we will cease to be an emerging growth company prior to the end of such five-year period.

 

In addition, the JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of an extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards. We have elected to avail ourselves of this exemption.

 

Corporate Information

 

We were formed as BioSig Technologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation, in February 2009. In April 2011, we merged with our wholly-owned subsidiary, BioSig Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation, with the Delaware corporation continuing as the surviving entity. Our principal executive offices are located at 12424 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 745 Los Angeles, CA 90025, and our telephone number is (310) 620-9320. Our website address is www.biosig.com. Information accessed through our website is not incorporated into this prospectus and is not a part of this prospectus.

 

The Securities We May Offer

 

We may offer up to $75,000,000 of common stock, preferred stock, warrants and/or units in one or more offerings and in any combination. This prospectus provides you with a general description of the securities we may offer. A prospectus supplement, which we will provide each time we offer securities, will describe the specific amounts, prices and terms of these securities.

 

Common Stock

 

We may issue shares of our common stock from time to time. The holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote per share. Our certificate of incorporation does not provide for cumulative voting. We do not have a classified board of directors. The terms of our Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) prohibit us from paying cash dividends to our holders of common stock absent the approval of holders representing at least 67% of the outstanding shares of the Series C Preferred Stock, which holders must include Alpha Capital Anstalt, so long as Alpha Capital Anstalt holds not less than $100,000 of the Series C Preferred Stock. We have not paid any dividends since our inception, and, subject to our obligations to pay dividends to the holders of the Series C Preferred Stock, we presently anticipate that all earnings, if any, will be retained for development of our business. Even if we are permitted to pay cash dividends in the future, 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. 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 holders of our common stock have no preemptive, subscription, redemption or conversion rights. The rights, preferences and privileges of holders of our common stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of any series of preferred stock, which may be designated solely by action of our board of directors and issued in the future.

 

Preferred Stock

 

We may issue shares of our preferred stock from time to time, in one or more series. Our board of directors will determine the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions of the preferred stock, including dividend rights, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences, sinking fund terms and the number of shares constituting any series or the designation of such series, without any further vote or action by stockholders. Convertible preferred stock will be convertible into our common stock or exchangeable for our other securities. Conversion may be mandatory or at your option or both and would be at prescribed conversion rates.

 

If we sell any series of preferred stock under this prospectus and applicable prospectus supplements, we will fix the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions of the preferred stock of such series in the certificate of designation relating to that series. We will file as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, or will incorporate by reference from reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the form of any certificate of designation that describes the terms of the series of preferred stock we are offering before the issuance of the related series of preferred stock. We urge you to read the applicable prospectus supplement related to the series of preferred stock being offered, as well as the complete certificate of designation that contains the terms of the applicable series of preferred stock.

 

 

Warrants

 

We may issue warrants for the purchase of common stock or preferred stock in one or more series. We may issue warrants independently or together with common stock or preferred stock, and the warrants may be attached to or separate from these securities. We will evidence each series of warrants by warrant certificates that we will issue under a separate agreement. We may enter into warrant agreements with a bank or trust company that we select to be our warrant agent. We will indicate the name and address of the warrant agent in the applicable prospectus supplement relating to a particular series of warrants.

 

In this prospectus, we have summarized certain general features of the warrants. We urge you, however, to read the applicable prospectus supplement related to the particular series of warrants being offered, as well as the warrant agreements and warrant certificates that contain the terms of the warrants. We will file as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, or will incorporate by reference from reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the form of warrant agreement or warrant certificate containing the terms of the warrants we are offering before the issuance of the warrants.

 

Units

 

We may issue units consisting of common stock, preferred stock and/or warrants for the purchase of common stock or preferred stock in one or more series. In this prospectus, we have summarized certain general features of the units. We urge you, however, to read the applicable prospectus supplement related to the series of units being offered, as well as the unit agreements that contain the terms of the units. We will file as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, or will incorporate by reference reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the form of unit agreement and any supplemental agreements that describe the terms of the series of units we are offering before the issuance of the related series of units.

 

 

 

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. The prospectus supplement applicable to each offering of our securities will contain a discussion of the risks applicable to an investment in our securities. Before deciding whether to invest in our securities, you should carefully consider the specific factors discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in the applicable prospectus supplement, together with all of the other information contained or incorporated by reference in the prospectus supplement or appearing or incorporated by reference in this prospectus. You should also consider the risks, uncertainties and assumptions discussed under Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K or any updates in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, together with all other information appearing in or incorporated by reference into this prospectus or the applicable prospectus supplement, before deciding whether to purchase any securities being offered. If any of these risks actually occurs, our business, business prospects, financial condition or results of operations could be seriously harmed. This could cause the trading price of our common stock to decline, resulting in a loss of all or part of your investment. Please also read carefully the section below entitled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This prospectus, each prospectus supplement and the information incorporated by reference in this prospectus and each prospectus supplement contain “forward-looking statements,” which include information relating to future events, future financial performance, strategies, expectations, competitive environment and regulation. Words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “future,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and may not be accurate indications of when such performance or results will actually be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information we have when those statements are made or our management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to:

 

 

Our history of recurring losses and negative cash flows from operating activities and the uncertainty regarding the adequacy of our liquidity to pursue or complete our business objectives.

 

 

Our inability to carry out research, development and commercialization plans.

 

 

Our inability to manufacture our PURE EP product on a commercial scale on our own or in collaborations with third parties.

 

 

Our inability to complete preclinical testing and clinical trials as anticipated.

 

 

Our ability to adequately protect and enforce rights to intellectual property.

 

 

Difficulties in obtaining financing on commercially reasonable terms, or at all.

 

 

Intense competition in our industry, with competitors having substantially greater financial, technological, research and development, regulatory and clinical, manufacturing, marketing and sales, distribution and personnel resources than we do.

 

 

Entry of new competitors and products and potential technological obsolescence of our products.

 

 

Adverse market and economic conditions.

 

 

Our ability to maintain the listing of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

 

Loss of one or more key executives or scientists.

 

 

Difficulties in securing and retaining regulatory approval to market our product and product candidates.

 

You should read this prospectus, the applicable prospectus supplement and any related free-writing prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus with the understanding that our actual future results, levels of activity, performance and events and circumstances may be materially different from what we expect. The forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which any such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

 

 

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

Unless we specify another use in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will use the net proceeds from the sale of the securities offered by us for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, working capital, capital expenditures, and to the extent we have any debt, debt repayment.

 

We may also use such proceeds to fund acquisitions of technologies that complement our current business. We may set forth additional information on the use of net proceeds from the sale of the securities we offer under this prospectus in a prospectus supplement related to a specific offering.

 

Investors are cautioned, however, that expenditures may vary substantially from these uses. Investors will be relying on the judgment of our management, who will have broad discretion regarding the application of the proceeds of this offering. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures will depend upon numerous factors, including the amount of cash generated by our operations, the amount of competition and other operational factors. We may find it necessary or advisable to use portions of the proceeds from this offering for other purposes.

 

From time to time, we evaluate these and other factors and we anticipate continuing to make such evaluations to determine if the existing allocation of resources, including the proceeds of this offering, is being optimized. Circumstances that may give rise to a change in the use of proceeds include:

 

 

a change in development plan or strategy;

 

 

the addition of new products or applications;

 

 

technical delays;

 

 

delays or difficulties with our clinical trials;

 

 

negative results from our clinical trials;

 

 

difficulty obtaining and retaining regulatory approval;

 

 

failure to achieve sales as anticipated;

 

 

the availability and terms of debt financing to fund a portion of the purchase price(s) for potential acquisitions; and

 

 

the availability of other sources of cash including cash flow from operations and new bank debt financing arrangements, if any.

 

Pending other uses, we intend to invest the proceeds to us in investment-grade, interest-bearing securities such as money market funds, certificates of deposit, or direct or guaranteed obligations of the U.S. government, or hold as cash. We cannot predict whether the proceeds invested will yield a favorable, or any, return.

 

 

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.

 

7

 

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.

 

8

 

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. 

 

9

 

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.

 

 

 

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 and Bylaws

 

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 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.

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF WARRANTS

 

We may issue warrants for the purchase of common stock or preferred stock in one or more series. We may issue warrants independently or together with common stock or preferred stock, and the warrants may be attached to or separate from these securities.

 

We will evidence each series of warrants by warrant certificates that we may issue under a separate agreement. We may enter into a warrant agreement with a warrant agent. Each warrant agent may be a bank that we select which has its principal office in the United States. We may also choose to act as our own warrant agent. We will indicate the name and address of any such warrant agent in the applicable prospectus supplement relating to a particular series of warrants.

 

We will describe in the applicable prospectus supplement the terms of the series of warrants, including:

 

 

the offering price and aggregate number of warrants offered;

 

 

if applicable, the designation and terms of the securities with which the warrants are issued and the number of warrants issued with each such security or each principal amount of such security;

 

 

if applicable, the date on and after which the warrants and the related securities will be separately transferable;

 

 

in the case of warrants to purchase common stock or preferred stock, the number or amount of shares of common stock or preferred stock, as the case may be, purchasable upon the exercise of one warrant and the price at which and currency in which these shares may be purchased upon such exercise;

 

 

the manner of exercise of the warrants, including any cashless exercise rights;

 

 

the warrant agreement under which the warrants will be issued;

 

 

the effect of any merger, consolidation, sale or other disposition of our business on the warrant agreement and the warrants;

 

 

anti-dilution provisions of the warrants, if any;

 

 

the terms of any rights to redeem or call the warrants;

 

 

any provisions for changes to or adjustments in the exercise price or number of securities issuable upon exercise of the warrants;

 

 

the dates on which the right to exercise the warrants will commence and expire or, if the warrants are not continuously exercisable during that period, the specific date or dates on which the warrants will be exercisable;

 

 

the manner in which the warrant agreement and warrants may be modified;

 

 

the identities of the warrant agent and any calculation or other agent for the warrants;

 

 

federal income tax consequences of holding or exercising the warrants;

 

 

the terms of the securities issuable upon exercise of the warrants;

 

 

any securities exchange or quotation system on which the warrants or any securities deliverable upon exercise of the warrants may be listed or quoted; and

 

 

any other specific terms, preferences, rights or limitations of or restrictions on the warrants.

 

Before exercising their warrants, holders of warrants may not have any of the rights of holders of the securities purchasable upon such exercise, including, in the case of warrants to purchase common stock or preferred stock, the right to receive dividends, if any, or, payments upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up or to exercise voting rights, if any.

 

 

 

Exercise of Warrants

 

Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase the securities that we specify in the applicable prospectus supplement at the exercise price that we describe in the applicable prospectus supplement. Unless we otherwise specify in the applicable prospectus supplement, holders of the warrants may exercise the warrants at any time up to 5:00 P.M. eastern time, the close of business, on the expiration date that we set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement. After the close of business on the expiration date, unexercised warrants will become void.

 

Holders of the warrants may exercise the warrants by delivering the warrant certificate representing the warrants to be exercised together with specified information, and paying the required exercise price by the methods provided in the applicable prospectus supplement. We will set forth in the warrant certificate or warrant agreement, and in the applicable prospectus supplement, the information that the holder of the warrant will be required to deliver to the warrant agent.

 

Upon receipt of the required payment and the warrant certificate properly completed and duly executed at the corporate trust office of the warrant agent or any other office indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will issue and deliver the securities purchasable upon such exercise. If fewer than all of the warrants represented by the warrant certificate are exercised, then we will, if required by the terms of the warrant, issue a new warrant certificate for the remaining amount of warrants.

 

Enforceability of Rights By Holders of Warrants

 

Any warrant agent will act solely as our agent under the applicable warrant agreement and will not assume any obligation or relationship of agency or trust with any holder of any warrant. A single bank or trust company may act as warrant agent for more than one issue of warrants. A warrant agent will have no duty or responsibility in case of any default by us under the applicable warrant agreement or warrant, including any duty or responsibility to initiate any proceedings at law or otherwise, or to make any demand upon us. Any holder of a warrant may, without the consent of the related warrant agent or the holder of any other warrant, enforce by appropriate legal action the holder’s right to exercise, and receive the securities purchasable upon exercise of, its warrants in accordance with their terms.

 

Warrant Agreement Will Not Be Qualified Under Trust Indenture Act

 

No warrant agreement will be qualified as an indenture, and no warrant agent will be required to qualify as a trustee, under the Trust Indenture Act. Therefore, holders of warrants issued under a warrant agreement will not have the protection of the Trust Indenture Act with respect to their warrants.

 

Governing Law

 

Unless we provide otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, each warrant agreement and any warrants issued under the warrant agreements will be governed by New York law.

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF UNITS

 

We may issue units comprised of one or more of the other securities described in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement in any combination. Each unit will be issued so that the holder of the unit is also the holder, with the rights and obligations of a holder, of each security included in the unit. The unit agreement under which a unit is issued may provide that the securities included in the unit may not be held or transferred separately, at any time or at any times before a specified date or upon the occurrence of a specified event or occurrence.

 

The applicable prospectus supplement will describe:

 

 

the designation and the terms of the units and of the securities comprising the units, including whether and under what circumstances those securities may be held or transferred separately;

 

 

any unit agreement under which the units will be issued;

 

 

any provisions for the issuance, payment, settlement, transfer or exchange of the units or of the securities comprising the units; and

 

 

whether the units will be issued in fully registered or global form.

 

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We may sell the securities offered pursuant to this prospectus from time to time in one or more transactions, including, without limitation:

 

 

to or through underwriters;

 

 

through broker-dealers (acting as agent or principal);

 

 

through agents;

 

 

directly by us to one or more purchasers (including our affiliates and stockholders), through a specific bidding or auction process, a rights offering, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise;

 

 

through a combination of any such methods of sale; or

 

 

through any other methods described in a prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus.

 

The distribution of securities may be effected, from time to time, in one or more transactions, including:

 

 

block transactions (which may involve crosses) and transactions on The Nasdaq Capital Market or any other organized market where the securities may be traded;

 

 

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its own account pursuant to a prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus;

 

 

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which a broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

 

 

sales “at the market” to or through a market maker or into an existing trading market, on an exchange or otherwise; and

 

 

sales in other ways not involving market makers or established trading markets, including direct sales to purchasers.

 

The applicable prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus will describe the terms of the offering of the securities, including:

 

 

the name or names of any underwriters, if, and if required, any dealers or agents;

 

 

the purchase price of the securities and the proceeds we will receive from the sale;

 

 

any underwriting discounts and other items constituting underwriters’ compensation;

 

 

any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers; and

 

 

any securities exchange or market on which the securities may be listed or traded.

 

We may distribute the securities from time to time in one or more transactions at:

 

 

a fixed price or prices, which may be changed;

 

 

market prices prevailing at the time of sale;

 

 

prices related to such prevailing market prices; or

 

 

negotiated prices.

 

 

Only underwriters named in the prospectus supplement are underwriters of the securities offered by the prospectus supplement.

 

If underwriters are used in an offering, we will execute an underwriting agreement with such underwriters and will specify the name of each underwriter and the terms of the transaction (including any underwriting discounts and other terms constituting compensation of the underwriters and any dealers) in a prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus. The securities may be offered to the public either through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters or directly by one or more investment banking firms or others, as designated. If an underwriting syndicate is used, the managing underwriter(s) will be specified on the cover of the prospectus supplement. If underwriters are used in the sale, the offered securities will be acquired by the underwriters for their own accounts and may be resold from time to time in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. Any public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers may be changed from time to time. Unless otherwise set forth in the prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus, the obligations of the underwriters to purchase the offered securities will be subject to conditions precedent, and the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all of the offered securities, if any are purchased.

 

We may grant to the underwriters options to purchase additional securities to cover over-allotments, if any, at the public offering price, with additional underwriting commissions or discounts, as may be set forth in a related prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus. The terms of any over-allotment option will be set forth in the prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus for those securities.

 

If a dealer is used in the sale of the securities, we, or an underwriter, will sell the securities to the dealer, as principal. The dealer may then resell the securities to the public at varying prices to be determined by the dealer at the time of resale. To the extent required, we will set forth in the prospectus supplement, document incorporated by reference or free writing prospectus, as applicable, the name of the dealer and the terms of the transactions.

 

We may sell the securities directly or through agents we designate from time to time. We will name any agent involved in the offering and sale of securities and we will describe any commissions we will pay the agent in the prospectus supplement.

 

We may authorize agents or underwriters to solicit offers by institutional investors to purchase securities from us at the public offering price set forth in the prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus pursuant to delayed delivery contracts providing for payment and delivery on a specified date in the future. We will describe the conditions to these contracts and the commissions we must pay for solicitation of these contracts in the prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus.

 

In connection with the sale of the securities, underwriters, dealers or agents may receive compensation from us or from purchasers of the securities for whom they act as agents, in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions. Underwriters may sell the securities to or through dealers, and those dealers may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the underwriters or commissions from the purchasers for whom they may act as agents. Underwriters, dealers and agents that participate in the distribution of the securities, and any institutional investors or others that purchase securities directly for the purpose of resale or distribution, may be deemed to be underwriters, and any discounts or commissions received by them from us and any profit on the resale of the common stock by them may be deemed to be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). No FINRA member firm may receive compensation in excess of that allowable under FINRA rules, including Rule 5110, in connection with the offering of the securities.

 

We may provide agents, underwriters and other purchasers with indemnification against particular civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or contribution with respect to payments that the agents, underwriters or other purchasers may make with respect to such liabilities. Agents and underwriters may engage in transactions with, or perform services for, us in the ordinary course of business.

 

To facilitate the public offering of a series of securities, persons participating in the offering may engage in transactions in accordance with Regulation M under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) that stabilize, maintain, or otherwise affect the market price of the securities. This may include over-allotments or short sales of the securities, which involves the sale by persons participating in the offering of more securities than have been sold to them by us. In addition, those persons may stabilize or maintain the price of the securities by bidding for or purchasing securities in the open market or by imposing penalty bids, whereby selling concessions allowed to underwriters or dealers participating in any such offering may be reclaimed if securities sold by them are repurchased in connection with stabilization transactions. The effect of these transactions may be to stabilize or maintain the market price of the securities at a level above that which might otherwise prevail in the open market. Such transactions, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time. We make no representation or prediction as to the direction or magnitude of any effect that the transactions described above, if implemented, may have on the price of our securities.

 

 

Unless otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus, any common stock sold pursuant to a prospectus supplement will be eligible for trading as listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market. Any underwriters who are qualified market makers to whom securities are sold by us for public offering and sale may make a market in the securities in accordance with Rule 103 of Regulation M, but such underwriters will not be obligated to do so and may discontinue any market making at any time without notice.

 

In order to comply with the securities laws of some states, if applicable, the securities offered pursuant to this prospectus will be sold in those states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states securities may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale in the applicable state or an exemption from the registration or qualification requirement is available and complied with.

 

To the extent required, this prospectus may be amended or supplemented from time to time to describe a specific plan of distribution.

We incorporate by reference the documents listed below and any future documents (excluding information furnished pursuant to Items 2.02 and 7.01 of Form 8-K) we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Sections l3(a), l3(c), 14 or l5(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, subsequent to the date of this prospectus and prior to the termination of the offering:

You should rely only on the information incorporated by reference or provided in this prospectus. We have not authorized anyone else to provide you with different information. Any statement contained in a document incorporated by reference into this prospectus will be deemed to be modified or superseded for the purposes of this prospectus to the extent that a later statement contained in this prospectus or in any other document incorporated by reference into this prospectus modifies or supersedes the earlier statement. Any statement so modified or superseded will not be deemed, except as so modified or superseded, to constitute a part of this prospectus. You should not assume that the information in this prospectus is accurate as of any date other than the date of this prospectus or the date of the documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus.
