Item 8.01 Other Events
The Company previously announced its tender offer (the Warrant Tender Offer) for certain outstanding series of eligible warrants, offering the holders of such warrants the opportunity to amend and exercise their warrants at a reduced exercise price equal to the lower of (i) their respective existing exercise price (the Original Exercise Price) or (ii) $0.40 per share of common stock. As an inducement to holders to participate in the Warrant Tender Offer, the Company offered to issue to participating holders shares of common stock equal to an additional 50% of the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the eligible warrants (collectively, the Additional Shares). The Warrant Tender Offer was made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Amend and Exercise Warrants to Purchase Common Stock of CytoDyn Inc., previously mailed to the holders of eligible warrants on June 24, 2019, and which was included in the Companys Schedule TO-I initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 24, 2019.
At 5:00 P.M. (Eastern time) on July 31, 2019, the offering period and withdrawal rights for the Warrant Tender Offer expired. Upon completion of the Warrant Tender Offer, 175 Original Warrants to purchase up to 7,307,490 shares of common stock had been validly tendered and not withdrawn in the Warrant Tender Offer, for gross cash proceeds to the Company of approximately $2.8 million. Accordingly, an aggregate of 3,653,723 Additional Shares will be issued to participating holders of eligible warrants. Solicitation fees of approximately $237,000 were paid to the solicitation agent in the Warrant Tender Offer.
1,350,231 of the shares of common stock sold to investors in the Warrant Tender Offer were sold pursuant to the Companys Registration Statements on Form S-3 (File No. 333-223195) declared effective on March 7, 2018, and the prospectuses and prospectus supplements filed thereunder. 9,610,982 shares of common stock, including all of the Additional Shares, were sold to accredited investors in reliance upon the exemption provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D and Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Dr. David F. Welch tendered Original Warrants beneficially owned by him, covering an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock, and received 500,000 Additional Shares. Dr. Welch is a member of the Companys board of directors and participated on terms identical to those applicable to other holders of Original Warrants.
Accordingly, the Company is instructing its transfer agent to issue an aggregate of 10,961,213 shares of common stock to participants in the Warrant Tender Offer.
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.
