Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Between August 28, 2018 and September 4, 2018, CytoDyn Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), issued in private placements to accredited investors an aggregate of 16,758,770 shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share, together with warrants to purchase an aggregate of 8,379,385 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share. The securities were issued at a combined purchase price of $0.50 per fixed combination of one share of common stock and one half of one warrant to purchase one share of common stock, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $8.4 million. The warrants have a five-year term and are immediately exercisable. Pursuant to the subscription agreements, the Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare and file with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission within ninety (90) days following the final closing of the offering to which this Form 8-K relates, but not later than December 31, 2018, a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, covering the resale of all of the shares of common stock sold in the private placements. Copies of the forms of warrant and subscription agreement are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 10.1, respectively, to this Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the subscription agreements were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the subscription agreements. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the subscription agreements and not as statements of fact, and (ii) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders of, or other investors in, the Company. Accordingly, the form of the subscription agreement is included with this filing only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of transaction, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Stockholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the subscription agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.
As a fee to the placement agent, the Company has agreed to pay a cash fee equal to 12% of the gross proceeds received from qualified investors in the offering, or $945,526, as well as a one-time non-accountable expense fee of $25,000 in the aggregate for all closings in this offering. The Company also agreed to grant the placement agent or its designees warrants to purchase up to 10% of the number of shares of common stock sold to qualified investors in the offering, or 1,575,877 shares for the private placement closings to which this Form 8-K relates, on terms similar to the investor warrants described above. The placement agent warrants provide for cashless exercise.
The Company relied on the exemption provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D and Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in connection with the foregoing transactions.
After giving effect to the foregoing transactions, the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of September 4, 2018 was 235,451,549. As of September 4, 2018, the total number of outstanding warrants was 133,692,440, with an average weighted exercise price of $0.78 per share.
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The disclosure in Item 1.01 of this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

Warrant to Purchase
As Herein Described
WARRANT TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK OF
This is to certify that, for value received, , or a proper assignee (the Holder), is entitled to purchase up to shares (Warrant Shares) of common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the Common Stock), of CytoDyn Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), subject to the provisions of this Warrant. This Warrant shall be exercisable at seventy-five ($0.75) per share (the Exercise Price). This Warrant also is subject to the following terms and conditions:
1. Exercise and Payment; Exchange .
(a) This Warrant may be exercised in whole or in part at any time from and after the date hereof (the Commencement Date) through 5:00 p.m., Pacific time, on the date that is five (5) years following the Commencement Date (the Expiration Date), at which time this Warrant shall expire and become void, but if such date is a day on which federal or state chartered banking institutions located in the State of New York are authorized to close, then on the next succeeding day which shall not be such a day. Exercise shall be by presentation and surrender to the Company, or at the office of any transfer agent designated by the Company (the
Transfer Agent), of (i) this Warrant, (ii) the attached exercise form properly executed, and (iii) a certified or official bank check for the Exercise Price for the number of Warrant Shares specified in the exercise form. If this Warrant is exercised in part only, the Company or the Transfer Agent shall, upon surrender of the Warrant, execute and deliver a new Warrant evidencing the rights of the Holder to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder. Upon receipt by the Company of this Warrant, the properly executed exercise form, and payment as aforesaid, the Holder shall be deemed to be the holder of record of the Common Stock issuable upon such exercise, notwithstanding that the stock transfer books of the Company shall then be closed or that certificates representing such Warrant Shares shall not then be actually delivered to the Holder. Under no circumstance shall the Company be required to make any cash payments or net cash settlement to the Holder in lieu of delivery of the Warrant Shares.
(b) Conditions to Exercise or Exchange . The restrictions in Section 7 shall apply, to the extent applicable by their terms, to any exercise or exchange of this Warrant permitted by this Section 1.
2. Reservation of Shares . The Company shall, at all times until the expiration of this Warrant, reserve for issuance and delivery upon exercise of this Warrant the number of Warrant Shares which shall be required for issuance and delivery upon exercise of this Warrant.
3. Fractional Interests . The Company shall not issue any fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares upon the exercise or exchange of this Warrant. With respect to any fraction of a share resulting from the exercise or exchange hereof, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in cash equal to such fraction multiplied by the current fair market value per share of Common Stock, determined as follows:
(a) If the Common Stock is listed on a national securities exchange or admitted to unlisted trading privileges on such an exchange, the current fair market value shall be the last reported sale price of the Common Stock on such exchange on the last business day prior to the date of exercise of this Warrant or if no such sale is made on such day, the mean of the closing bid and asked prices for such day on such exchange;
(b) If the Common Stock is not so listed or admitted to unlisted trading privileges on a national securities exchange, the current fair market value shall be the mean of the last bid and asked prices reported on the last business day prior to the date of the exercise of this Warrant by the OTC Markets Group, Inc.; or
(c) If the Common Stock is not so listed or admitted to unlisted trading privileges on a national securities exchange and bid and asked prices are not so reported, the current fair market value shall be an amount, not less than book value, determined in such reasonable manner as may be prescribed by the Company in good faith.
4. No Rights as Shareholder . This Warrant shall not entitle the Holder to any rights as a shareholder of the Company, either at law or in equity. The rights of the Holder are limited to those expressed in this Warrant and are not enforceable against the Company except to the extent set forth herein.
5. Adjustments in Number and Exercise Price of Warrant Shares .
5.1 The number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant may be exercised and the Exercise Price therefor shall be subject to adjustment as follows:
(a) If the Company is recapitalized through the subdivision or combination of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger or smaller number of shares, the number of Warrant Shares shall be increased or reduced, as of the record date for such recapitalization, in the same proportion as the increase or decrease in the outstanding shares of Common Stock, and the Exercise Price shall be adjusted so that the aggregate amount payable for the purchase of all of the Warrant Shares issuable hereunder immediately after the record date for such recapitalization shall equal the aggregate amount so payable immediately before such record date.
(b) If the Company declares a dividend on Common Stock payable in Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock, the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant may be exercised shall be increased as of the record date for determining which holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive such dividend, in proportion to the increase in the number of outstanding shares (and shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of all such securities convertible into Common Stock) of Common Stock as a result of such dividend, and the Exercise Price shall be adjusted so that the aggregate amount payable for the purchase of all the Warrant Shares issuable hereunder immediately after the record date for such dividend shall equal the aggregate amount so payable immediately before such record date.
(c) If the Company distributes to holders of its Common Stock, other than as part of its dissolution or liquidation or the winding up of its affairs, any evidence of indebtedness or any of its assets (other than cash, Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock), the Company shall give written notice to the Holder of any such distribution at least fifteen (15) days prior to the proposed record date in order to permit the Holder to exercise this Warrant on or before the record date. There shall be no adjustment in the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant may be exercised, or in the Exercise Price, by virtue of any such distribution.
(d) If the Company offers rights or warrants to the holders of Common Stock which entitle them to subscribe to or purchase additional Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock, the Company shall give written notice of any such proposed offering to the Holder at least fifteen (15) days prior to the proposed record date in order to permit the Holder to exercise this Warrant on or before such record date. There shall be no adjustment in the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant may be exercised, or in the Exercise Price, by virtue of any such distribution.
(e) If the event, as a result of which an adjustment is made under paragraph (a) or (b) above, does not occur, then any adjustments in the Exercise Price or number of shares issuable that were made in accordance with such paragraph (a) or (b) shall be adjusted to the Exercise Price and number of shares as were in effect immediately prior to the record date for such event.
5.2 In the event of any reorganization or reclassification of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (other than a change in par value or from no par value to par value, or from par value to no par value, or as a result of a subdivision or combination) or in the event of any consolidation or merger of the Company with another entity after which the Company is not the surviving entity, at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant, upon subsequent exercise of this Warrant the Holder shall have the right to receive the same kind and number of shares of common stock and other securities, cash or other property as would have been distributed to the Holder upon such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger had the Holder exercised this Warrant immediately prior to such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger, appropriately adjusted for any subsequent event described in this Section 5. The Holder shall pay upon such exercise the Exercise Price that otherwise would have been payable pursuant to the terms of this Warrant. If any such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger results in a cash distribution in excess of the then applicable Exercise Price, the Holder may, at the Holders option, exercise this Warrant without making payment of the Exercise Price, and in such case the Company shall, upon distribution to the Holder, consider the Exercise Price to have been paid in full, and in making settlement to the Holder, shall deduct an amount equal to the Exercise Price from the amount payable to the Holder. In the event of any such reorganization, merger or consolidation, the corporation formed by such consolidation or merger or the corporation which shall have acquired the assets of the Company shall execute and deliver a supplement hereto to the foregoing effect, which supplement shall also provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided in this Warrant.
5.3 If the Company shall, at any time before the expiration of this Warrant, dissolve, liquidate or wind up its affairs, the Holder shall have the right to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of the shares of Common Stock of the Company that the Holder otherwise would have been entitled to receive, the same kind and amount of assets as would have been issued, distributed or paid to the Holder upon any such dissolution, liquidation or winding up with respect to such Common Stock receivable upon exercise of this Warrant on the date for determining those entitled to receive any such distribution. If any such dissolution, liquidation or winding up results in any cash distribution in excess of the Exercise Price provided by this Warrant, the Holder may, at the Holders option, exercise this Warrant without making payment of the Exercise Price and, in such case, the Company shall, upon distribution to the Holder, consider the Exercise Price to have been paid in full and, in making settlement to the Holder, shall deduct an amount equal to the Exercise Price from the amount payable to the Holder.
6. Notices to Holder . So long as this Warrant shall be outstanding (a) if the Company shall pay any dividends or make any distribution upon the Common Stock otherwise than in cash or (b) if the Company shall offer generally to the holders of Common Stock the right to subscribe to or purchase any shares of any class of Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock or any similar rights or (c) if there shall be any capital reorganization of the Company in which the Company is not the surviving entity, recapitalization of the capital stock of the Company, consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another corporation, sale, lease or other transfer of all or substantially all of the property and assets of the Company, or voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company, then in such event, the Company shall cause to be mailed to the
Holder, at least thirty (30) days prior to the relevant date described below (or such shorter period as is reasonably possible if thirty (30) days is not reasonably possible), a notice containing a description of the proposed action and stating the date or expected date on which a record of the Companys shareholders is to be taken for the purpose of any such dividend, distribution of rights, or such reclassification, reorganization, consolidation, merger, conveyance, lease or transfer, dissolution, liquidation or winding up is to take place and the date or expected date, if any is to be fixed, as of which the holders of Common Stock of record shall be entitled to exchange their shares of Common Stock for securities or other property deliverable upon such event.
7. Transfer, Exercise, Exchange, Assignment or Loss of Warrant, Warrant Shares or Other Securities .
7.1 This Warrant may be transferred, exercised, exchanged or assigned (transferred), in whole or in part, subject to the following restrictions. This Warrant and the Warrant Shares or any other securities (Other Securities) received upon exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to restrictions on transferability until registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), unless an exemption from registration is available.

This Warrant and the Warrant Shares or Other Securities may also be subject to restrictions on transferability under applicable state securities or blue sky laws. Until this Warrant and the Warrant Shares or Other Securities are registered under the Securities Act, the Holder shall reimburse the Company for its expenses, including attorneys fees, incurred in connection with any transfer or assignment, in whole or in part, of this Warrant or any Warrant Shares or Other Securities.
7.2 Until this Warrant, the Warrant Shares or other Securities are registered under the Securities Act, the Company may require, as a condition of transfer of this Warrant, the Warrant Shares, or Other Securities, that the transferee (who may be the Holder in the case of an exercise or exchange) represent that such transferee is an accredited investor within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act and that the securities being transferred are being acquired for investment purposes and for the transferees own account and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution of the security.
7.3 Any transfer permitted hereunder shall be made by surrender of this Warrant to the Company or to the Transfer Agent at its offices with a duly executed request to transfer the Warrant, which shall provide adequate information to effect such transfer and shall be accompanied by funds sufficient to pay any transfer taxes applicable.

5. Registration Rights.
(a) The Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare and file with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC), within ninety (90) days following the final closing of the Offering, but not later than December 31, 2018, a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), covering the resale of all of the Registrable Securities in an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act (Rule 415). Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Company shall use its reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as possible after the filing thereof. For the purposes hereof, Registrable Securities means, as of any date of determination, (i) the Subscribed Shares and the Warrant Shares and (ii) any securities issued or then issuable upon any stock split, dividend or other distribution, recapitalization or similar event with respect to the foregoing; provided , however , that any such Registrable Securities shall cease to be Registrable Securities (and the Company shall not be required to maintain the effectiveness of any, or file another, registration statement hereunder with respect thereto) for so long as (x) such Registrable Securities have been disposed of by the Purchaser in accordance with such effective registration statement, (y) such Registrable Securities have been previously sold in accordance with Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (Rule 144), or (z) such securities become eligible for resale without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions and without current public information pursuant to Rule 144, as reasonably determined by the Company upon the advice of counsel to the Company.
(b) Notwithstanding the registration obligations set forth in Section 5(a), if the SEC informs the Company that not all of the Registrable Securities can, as a result of the application of Rule 415 or other applicable regulations, be registered for resale as a secondary offering on a single registration statement, the Company agrees to promptly inform the Purchaser thereof and use its reasonable efforts to file amendments to the registration statement as required by the SEC, covering the maximum number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered by the SEC. If the SEC or any publicly available written or oral guidance of the SEC staff sets forth a limitation on the number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered on a particular Registration Statement as a secondary offering, the Company shall reduce Registrable Securities on a pro rata basis across participating investors in this Offering, in proportion to the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities to be registered by each.
(c) In connection with the Companys registration obligations hereunder, the Company shall, as promptly as reasonably possible under the circumstances taking into account the Companys good faith assessment of any adverse consequences to the Company and its stockholders of the premature disclosure of such event, prepare a supplement or amendment, including a post-effective amendment, to a registration statement or a supplement to the related prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference, and file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered, neither a registration statement nor such prospectus will contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. If the Company notifies the Purchaser to suspend the use of any prospectus until the requisite changes to such prospectus have been made, then the Purchaser shall suspend use of such prospectus.
(d) The Company may require each Purchaser to furnish to the Company a certified statement as to the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Purchaser and, to the extent applicable, the natural persons thereof that have voting and dispositive control over the shares, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B , as well as such other information about the Purchaser as may reasonably be requested by the Company to facilitate such registration.
(e) To the extent the Purchaser includes any Registrable Securities in a registration statement pursuant to the terms hereof, the Purchaser will indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors and officers and any controlling person from and against, and will reimburse the Company, its directors and officers and any controlling person with respect to, any and all loss, damage, liability, cost, or expense to which the Company, its directors and officers or such controlling person may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, damages, liabilities, costs, or expenses are caused by any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in such registration statement, any prospectus contained therein or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was so made in reliance upon and in conformity with information furnished by or on behalf of the Purchaser specifically for use in the preparation thereof, and provided further that the maximum amount that may be recovered from Purchaser shall be limited to the amount of proceeds received by the Purchaser from the sale of such Registrable Securities.
6. Restrictions on Transfer.
(a) The Purchaser understands and agrees that the Securities are subject to the transfer restrictions specified herein and in the Warrants, and that the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction; accordingly, the Securities (including the Warrant Shares) must be held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered or unless, in the opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, a sale or transfer may be made in compliance with the provisions of this Subscription Agreement and the Warrants, as the case may be, and without registration under United States securities laws and the applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction.
(b) The Purchaser further agrees that legends may be placed on the Securities restricting the transfer thereof, and that appropriate notations may be made in the Companys stock books and stop transfer instructions placed with the transfer agent of the Common Stock, each in a manner generally consistent with the foregoing.
(c) The Purchaser is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 which, in substance, permit limited public resale of restricted securities acquired by non-affiliates of the issuer thereof, directly or indirectly, from the issuer (or from an affiliate of such issuer), in a non-public offering subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, if applicable, including, among other things, the availability of certain public information about the Company and the resale occurring not less than six (6) months after the party has purchased and paid for the securities to be sold.
(d) The Purchaser further understands that at the time the Purchaser wishes to sell Securities (including any Warrant Shares issued or issuable upon exercise of the Warrants) there may be no public market upon which to make such a sale, and that, even if such a public market then exists, the Company may not have filed all reports and other materials required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, other than Form 8-K reports, during the preceding 12 months, and that, in such event, because the Company is a former shell company as contemplated under paragraph (i) of Rule 144, Rule 144 will not be available to the Purchaser.
(e) The Purchaser further understands that, because the Company is a former shell company as contemplated under paragraph (i) of Rule 144, regardless of the amount of time that the Purchaser holds the Securities, sales of the Securities may only be made under Rule 144 upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, including that the Company has filed with the SEC, during the 12 months preceding the sale, all quarterly and annual reports required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended; and that, accordingly , any restrictive legends placed on the Securities cannot be removed except in connection with an actual sale that is subject to an effective registration statement under, or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of, the Securities Act, and blanket removals of any such restrictive legends will not be possible .
(f) The Purchaser further understands that in the event all of the requirements of Rule 144 are not satisfied, registration under the Securities Act, compliance with Regulation A promulgated under the Securities Act, or some other registration exemption will be required; and that, notwithstanding the fact that Rule 144 is not exclusive, the staff of the SEC has expressed its opinion that persons proposing to sell private placement securities other than in a registered offering and otherwise than pursuant to Rule 144 will have a substantial burden of proof in establishing that an exemption from registration is available for such offers or sales, and that such persons and their respective brokers who participate in such transactions do so at their own risk.
