Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Securities Purchase Agreement

 

On February 10, 2022, Cyren Ltd. (“we,” “our,” or “us”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors named therein (the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which we agreed to sell and issue, in a private placement offering (the “Offering”), (i) 760,757 of our ordinary shares (the “Shares”), par value NIS 3.00 per share (the “Ordinary Shares”), (ii) pre-funded warrants (the “Pre-Funded Warrants”) to purchase up to 2,368,318 Ordinary Shares (the “Pre-Funded Warrant Shares”) with an exercise price of $0.001 per Pre-Funded Warrant Share, and (iii) warrants (the “Ordinary Warrants,” and together with the Pre-Funded Warrants, the “Warrants”) to purchase up to 3,129,075 Ordinary Shares (the “Ordinary Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of $3.71 per Ordinary Warrant Share, at a purchase price per Share and Ordinary Warrant of $3.835 or $3.834 per Pre-Funded Warrant and Ordinary Warrant. The Ordinary Warrants will be exercisable immediately and terminate on August 16, 2027. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, covenants, closing conditions, and indemnification of the Purchasers by us. We are required to pay certain liquidated damages to the Purchasers in the event we fail to satisfy the current public information requirements of Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), until such time that satisfaction of such requirements is no longer required for the sale of the Ordinary Shares.

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain exempt issuances set forth in the Purchase Agreement, we and all of our subsidiaries are prohibited from issuing any Ordinary Shares for 60 days after the earlier of (i) the date of effectiveness of the registration statement covering the resale of the Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and the Ordinary Shares underlying the Warrants (together the “Shares”) pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement described below, (ii) the date the Shares have been or may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act without the requirement for us to be in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144 and without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions, (iii) after February 14, 2023 provided that a holder of Shares is not an affiliate of us, or (iv) all of the Shares may be sold pursuant to an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(1) of the Securities Act without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions. Further, until the one year anniversary of the effective date of the initial registration statement filed under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is prohibited from effecting or entering into an agreement to effect any issuance by the Company of Ordinary Shares or Ordinary Share equivalents involving a Variable Rate Transaction (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), subject to certain limited exceptions set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

 

We entered into an engagement agreement (the “Engagement Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, who served as the placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) in connection with the Offering. We agreed to pay the Placement Agent a cash fee equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds from the Offering. We also agreed to pay the Placement Agent a management fee equal to 1.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds from the Offering, $35,000 for non-accountable expenses, up to $50,000 fees and expenses of legal counsel and other out-of-pocket expenses and up to $6,650 for escrow expenses.

 

We also agreed to issue to the Placement Agent or its designees warrants (the “Placement Agent Warrants”) to purchase up to 187,745 Ordinary Shares (the “Warrant Shares”), representing 6.0% of the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares and Pre-Funded Warrants sold in the Offering. The Placement Agent Warrants have an exercise price equal to $4.7938, or 125% of the offering price per Ordinary Share and are exercisable immediately and terminate on August 16, 2027.

 

The closing of the Offering occurred on February 14, 2022. We received gross proceeds of approximately $12 million in connection with the Offering. We intend to use the net proceeds received by us from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Registration Rights Agreement

 

In connection with the Offering, on February 10, 2022, we entered into Registration Rights Agreement with the Purchasers (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed to (i) file one or more registration statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), within fifteen calendar days of the date of the Registration Rights Agreement to cover the resale of the Shares, (ii) use our commercially reasonable efforts to have all such registration statements declared effective within the periods set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, and (iii) use our commercially reasonable efforts to keep such registration statements effective during the periods set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement. In the event that such registration statements are not declared effective within the periods set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, any such effective registration statements subsequently become unavailable, or use of the prospectus contained in such registration statements is suspended for certain periods of time, we would be required to pay certain liquidated damages to the Purchasers.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Purchase Agreement, the Ordinary Warrants, the Pre-Funded Warrants, the Placement Agent Warrants and the Registration Rights Agreement are not complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, the full text of such documents, copies of which are attached as Exhibits 10.1, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The information set forth under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.

 

We issued and sold the Shares, the Ordinary Warrants, the Pre-Funded Warrants and the Placement Agent Warrants, and may issue the Ordinary Shares issuable upon exercise of the Ordinary Warrants, Pre-Funded Warrants and the Placement Agent Warrants, in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) thereof and Rule 506 of Regulation D thereunder. In connection with the Purchasers’ execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Purchasers represented to us that they are each an “accredited investor” as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act and that the securities to be purchased by them will be acquired solely for their own account and not with a view to or for distributing or reselling such securities or any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law.

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K does not constitute, and may not be used in connection with, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities by any person in any jurisdiction in which it is unlawful for the person to make the offer or solicitation.
