Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On July 22, 2020, Milestone Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement with affiliates of RTW Investments, LP, an existing shareholder (the “Purchasers”), all of whom are accredited investors, pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell and issue to the Purchasers, in a private placement, pre-funded warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 6,655,131 of the Company’s common shares, no par value per share, at a purchase price of $3.7465 per pre-funded warrant (the “Private Placement”). The gross proceeds to the Company from the Private Placement are expected to be approximately $25 million. The Private Placement is expected to close on or about July 24, 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.


The pre-funded warrants have an initial exercise price of $0.01 per share, subject to certain adjustments, and no expiration date. The pre-funded warrants will be exercisable immediately and may be exercised at any time until all of the pre-funded warrants are exercised in full. A holder (together with its affiliates and other attribution parties) may not exercise any portion of a pre-funded warrant to the extent that immediately prior to or after giving effect to such exercise the holder would own more than 9.99% of the Company’s outstanding common shares immediately after exercise, which percentage may be changed at the holder's election to a lower or higher percentage upon 61 days’ notice to the Company subject to the terms of the pre-funded warrants. The Company agreed to file a registration statement within 30 days to register for resale the shares underlying the pre-funded warrants.


The foregoing description of the terms of the securities purchase agreement and pre-funded warrants are each qualified in their entirety by reference to the securities purchase agreement and form of pre-funded warrant, which are attached as Exhibits 10.1 and 4.1 hereto, respectively, and incorporated by reference herein.
