Re:Securities Registered under Registration Statement on Form S-3

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

Reference is made to the filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-201907) (as amended or supplemented, the “Registration Statement”) filed on February 5, 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), relating to the registration and offer by Precipio, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), of up to $50,000,000 of any combination of securities of the types specified therein. The Registration Statement was declared effective by the Commission on February 13, 2015. We are delivering this opinion letter in connection with the prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) filed on February 8, 2018 by the Company with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424 under the Securities Act. The Prospectus Supplement relates to the offering by the Company of up to $8,000,000 in shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”) covered by the Registration Statement. The Shares are being offered and sold by the Company to the investor named in, and pursuant to, an equity purchase agreement by and between the Company and such investor.

 

We have reviewed such documents and made such examination of law as we have deemed appropriate to give the opinions set forth below. We have relied, without independent verification, on certificates of public officials and, as to matters of fact material to the opinions set forth below, on certificates of officers of the Company.

 

For purposes of the opinion set forth below, we have assumed that the Shares are issued for a price per share equal to or greater than the minimum price authorized by the Company’s board of directors prior to the date hereof (the “Minimum Price”) and, in the future, the Company does not issue shares of Common Stock or reduce the total number of shares of Common Stock that the Company is authorized to issue under its certificate of incorporation such that the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock under the Company’s certificate of incorporation is less than the number of unissued Shares that may be issued for the Minimum Price.

 

For purposes of the opinions set forth below, we refer to the following as “Future Approval and Issuance”: (a) the approval by the Company’s board of directors (or a duly authorized committee of the board of directors) of the issuance of the Shares (the “Approval”) and (b) the issuance of the Shares in accordance with the Approval and the receipt by the Company of the consideration (which shall not be less than the par value of such Shares) to be paid in accordance with the Approval.

The opinion set forth below is limited to the Delaware General Corporation Law.

 

Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, upon Future Approval and Issuance, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

This opinion is being furnished to you for submission to the Commission as an exhibit to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K relating to the Shares (the “Current Report”), which is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement. We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion letter as an exhibit to the Current Report and its incorporation by reference and the reference to our firm in that report. In giving our consent, we do not admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and regulations thereunder.

 

  Very truly yours,
