Item 8.01 – Other Events.
On January 29, 2021, the principal shareholder of Razor Genomics, Inc. (“Razor”) informed us that the milestone requiring Oncocyte to purchase the outstanding shares of Razor common stock had been attained under the Subscription and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated September 4, 2019, among ourselves, Encore Clinical, Inc. (“Encore”), and Razor, and pursuant to certain Minority Holder Stock Purchase Agreements of like tenor (the “Minority Purchase Agreements”) with the shareholders of Razor other than Encore (the “Minority Shareholders”). Upon closing of the purchase of the Razor common stock, Oncocyte will be the sole shareholder of Razor. We will pay Encore and the Minority Shareholders in total $10 million in cash and will issue to them shares of our common stock having a market value of $5 million based on an average closing price of our common stock on the NYSE American over a five day period.
We acquired our rights to develop and market our lead diagnostic test DetermaRx™ through certain agreements with Razor that we entered into during September 2019 in connection with the Purchase Agreement and Minority Purchase Agreements. Closing of the purchase of the Razor common stock is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions.
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.
