Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Subscription Agreements

 

On April 25, 2019, Better Choice Company Inc. (the “Company” or “BTTR”) entered into Subscription Agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with accredited investors (the “Purchasers”) for the sale by the Company in a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of (i) 4,946,640 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”), at a purchase price of $3.00 per share, and (ii) warrants to purchase up to 4,946,640  shares of Common Stock, exercisable at any time after issuance at an exercise price equal to $4.25 per share, subject to adjustments as provided under the terms of the warrants (the “Warrants”). The Warrants are exercisable for 24 months from the initial issue date. The closing (the “Closing”) of the sales of these securities under the Subscription Agreements is expected to occur prior to May 10, 2019, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

 

The aggregate gross proceeds for the sale of the Shares and Warrants will be approximately $14.8 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the transactions for general corporate and working capital purposes.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Subscription Agreements, from the date of the Subscription Agreements until 30 days after effective date of the Resale Registration Statement (as defined below), the Company is prohibited from issuing, or entering into any agreement to issue, or announcing the issuance or proposed issuance of, any shares of Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents, subject to certain permitted exceptions.

 

The Private Placement is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act pursuant to the exemption for transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D of the Securities Act and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws. Each of the Purchasers represented that it is an accredited investor within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D, and was acquiring the securities for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof. The securities were offered without any general solicitation by the Company or its representatives.

 

The securities sold and issued in the Private Placement will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

 

Registration Rights Agreement

 

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company agreed to enter into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Purchasers, to be effective as of the Closing. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company agreed to prepare and file a registration statement (the “Resale Registration Statement”) with the SEC for purposes of registering the resale of the Shares and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants within 60 days after the Closing. The Company also agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Resale Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC within 120 days after the date of its filing (150 days in the event the Resale Registration Statement is reviewed by the SEC). If the Company fails to meet the specified filing deadlines or keep the Resale Registration Statement effective, subject to certain permitted exceptions, the Company will be required to pay liquidated damages to the Purchasers. The Company also agreed, among other things, to indemnify the selling holders from certain liabilities and to pay all fees and expenses incident to the Company’s performance of or compliance with the Registration Rights Agreement.

 

 

 

 

Transaction Documents

 

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Subscription Agreements were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Subscription Agreements. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating the risk between the parties to the Subscription Agreements and not as statements of fact, and (ii) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders of, or other investors in, the Company. Accordingly, the form of Subscription Agreement is filed with this report only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of transaction, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Stockholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Subscription Agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.

Forward Looking Statements.

The Company cautions you that statements included in this Current Report on Form 8-K that are not a description of historical facts are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” , or expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “could,” “intend,” “target,” “project,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negatives of these terms or other similar expressions. These statements are based on the Company’s current beliefs and expectations. These forward-looking statements include the completion of the sale of the Company’s securities and the amount and use of the expected net proceeds therefrom, and the potential completion of the proposed merger. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by the Company that any of its plans will be achieved. Actual results may differ from those set forth in this report due to the risk and uncertainties inherent in the Company’s business, including, without limitation: the satisfaction of customary closing conditions related to the sale of the Company’s securities, the risk that the conditions to the closing of the proposed merger are not satisfied, including the failure to timely or at all obtain shareholder approval for the transaction. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof, and the Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update this report to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. This caution is made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

 

No Offer or Solicitation

 

This communication and the exhibits filed hereto shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
