Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:OBLN), a vertically integrated weight loss solutions company commercializing the first and only FDA-approved swallowable, gas-filled intragastric balloon system for the treatment of obesity, announces that it has entered into a new common stock purchase agreement and registration rights agreement (together, the “Agreements”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), a Chicago-based institutional investor, for up to $15 million. The new Agreements replace existing agreements between the Company and LPC.
Under the terms of the Agreements and following the filing and effectiveness of a registration statement, Obalon will have the right at its sole discretion to sell to LPC up to $15 million worth of shares over a 36-month period, subject to various limitations including those under the NASDAQ listing rules. Furthermore, the Company will control the timing of any sales to LPC, and LPC will be obligated to make purchases of the Company’s common stock upon receipt of requests from the Company. There are no upper limits to the price per share LPC may pay to purchase the up to $15 million worth of common stock, and the purchase price of the shares will be based on the then prevailing market prices of the Company’s shares at the time of each sale to LPC. Proceeds will be used by the Company for general corporate purposes.
“We are pleased to enter into this second agreement with Lincoln Park Capital and expect to use the proceeds, as available, to fund expansion of the Company-owned or managed retail treatment center model,” said Bill Plovanic, President and Chief Executive Officer of Obalon.
There are no warrants, derivatives, financial or business covenants associated with the Agreements, and LPC has agreed not to cause or engage in any manner whatsoever, any direct or indirect short selling or hedging of shares of the Company’s common stock. The Agreements may be terminated by the Company at any time, at its sole discretion, without any cost or penalty.
