Item 1.01

Entry into a Definitive Material Agreement.

CytoDyn Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and its subsidiary CytoDyn Operations Inc. entered into a Settlement Agreement with Richard G. Pestell, M.D. Ph.D. (“Dr. Pestell”), its former Chief Medical Officer, on May 19, 2022 (the “Effective Date”). The Settlement Agreement relates to a lawsuit brought by Dr. Pestell in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware alleging breach of his employment agreement with the Company and the Company’s failure to release from escrow 8,342,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), in connection with the Company’s 2018 acquisition of ProstaGene LLC, of which Dr. Pestell was a controlling owner. Under the Settlement Agreement, the Company agreed to: (1) relinquish all rights to, and remove all transfer restrictions from, the 8,342,000 shares of Common Stock; (2) transfer and assign to Dr. Pestell all rights, title and interest (if any) in and to certain intangible assets previously written-off by the Company that had been acquired in the ProstaGene transaction; (3) grant to Dr. Pestell warrants with a three-year term to purchase 7,000,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.37 per share (the “Warrants”); and (4) include the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants in a registration statement to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in connection with a private placement of shares of Common Stock and warrants being conducted through a placement agent, as described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 12, 2022.

Except as described above, the Warrants have substantially the same terms as the form of warrant filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on September 7, 2021.

In addition, each of the parties agreed to dismiss the lawsuit and to release the other party from all claims, whether known or unknown, as of the Effective Date, other than the rights and obligations arising out of or in connection with the Settlement Agreement and related instruments.
