Item 3.02.

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

On April 14, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with certain accredited investors named in the Agreement (collectively, the “Purchasers”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 2,058,822 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, to the Purchasers at a purchase price (the “Purchase Price”) of $0.85 per share (the “Private Placement”) for aggregate proceeds to the Company of approximately $1.75 million. The Purchase Price was at a premium to the official closing price of $0.8151 per share of common stock on April 14, 2020 as reported by the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Each of the Purchasers was an affiliate and/or existing shareholder of the Company, including select members of the Company’s board of directors. The Agreement contained customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and the Purchasers, and the closing of the Private Placement is subject to customary closing conditions. In addition, the Purchasers were granted registration rights as further described in the Agreement.

The representations, warranties, and covenants in the Agreement were made solely for purposes of the Agreement and as of a specific date, are solely for the benefit of the parties to the Agreement and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to security holders generally. Security holders 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 Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.

The foregoing description of the Agreement is merely a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Securities Purchase Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
