October 2022 Public Offering

On October 6, 2022, the Company entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp., as underwriter (the “Underwriter”), related to the Company’s underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) of 2,652,065 units (“Units”) and 984,300 pre-funded units (“Pre-funded Units”). Each Unit consisted of one share (a “Share”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), and one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock (each, a “Warrant” and, collectively, the “Warrants”), and each Pre-funded Unit consisted of one pre-funded warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock (each, a “Pre-funded Warrant” and collectively, the “Pre-funded Warrants”) and one Warrant. The Units were sold at a price of $3.30 per Unit, and the Pre-Funded Units were sold at a price of $3.2999 ($3.30 less $0.0001, the exercise price of the Pre-funded Warrants).

The Warrants are immediately exercisable upon issuance and are exercisable for a period of five years after the issuance date. The Shares, the Pre-funded Warrants and the Warrants were immediately separable upon issuance and were issued separately. The Underwriter was granted a 45-day option to purchase up to an aggregate of (i) 545,454 additional Shares and/or Pre-funded Units, representing 15% of the Shares and Pre-funded Warrants sold in the Offering, and/or (ii) Warrants to purchase 545,454 additional Shares, representing 15% of the Warrants sold in the Offering, which it initially exercised, in part, electing to purchase 545,454 Warrants at a purchase price of $0.01 per Warrant. The Company consummated the transactions contemplated by the Offering and the Underwriting Agreement, including the partial exercise of the Underwriter’s option, on October 11, 2022. Prior to the closing date of the Offering, investors in certain of the Pre-funded Warrants, pursuant to the terms thereof, elected to exercise 949,900 Pre-funded Warrants. Accordingly, at the closing, the Company issued 949,900 fewer Pre-funded Warrants and, in lieu thereof, the corresponding 949,900 shares of Common Stock.

The Company estimates the net proceeds from the Offering to be $10.4 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company.

InvaGen Share Repurchase

In connection with the closing of the Offering, on October 11, 2022, the Company consummated the transactions contemplated by the Share Repurchase Agreement with InvaGen, pursuant to which the Company repurchased 100% of the shares in the Company held by InvaGen (the “InvaGen Shares”) for a purchase price of $3 million. In addition, under the Share Repurchase Agreement the Company agreed to pay InvaGen an additional amount as a contingent fee, payable in the form of seven and a half percent (7.5%) of the proceeds of future financings, up to $4 million. In connection with the closing of the Share Repurchase Agreement, which occurred on October 31, 2022, all of the rights retained by InvaGen pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement entered into by and among the Company, InvaGen and Fortress on November 12, 2018, were terminated.

Acquisition of Baergic Bio

The transaction contemplated by the Contribution Agreement was closed on November 8, 2022, following the satisfaction of the closing conditions of the Contribution Agreement. In exchange for the Contributed Shares, the Company assumed and became solely liable for all obligations, duties, covenants and liabilities arising from, based upon, related to or associated with the Contributed Shares, Fortress’ obligations under the contracts being assumed and Fortress’ ownership in Baergic. As a result of the closing of the Contribution Agreement, Baergic is now a majority owned subsidiary of the Company. Baergic is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company founded in December 2019 that focuses on the development of pharmaceutical products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders. Baergic’s pipeline currently consists of a single compound, BAER-101, a selective GABA-A positive allosteric modulator (“BAER-101”). BAER-101 (formally known as AZD7325) is Baergic’s principal asset and was originally developed by AstraZeneca and has an established safety profile in early clinical trials including over 700 patients.
