Dear Sirs:

 

Based upon the representations and warranties of Scopus BioPharma Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), to the extent and as set forth in Section 3 below, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereinafter provided, the undersigned hereby irrevocably offers (the “Offer to Purchase”) to purchase (a) a Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, in the initial principal amount (the “Initial Principal Amount”) set forth in the Execution Section of this securities purchase agreement (this “Securities Purchase Agreement” or “Agreement”), and (b) Series X Warrants, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (each, an “X Warrant”; and together with the Note, the “Purchased Securities”), pursuant to the terms hereof and the undersigned hereby tenders to the Company in full the offer price (the “Offer Price”) set forth in Section I of the Execution Section of this Securities Purchase Agreement in immediately available funds. This Securities Purchase Agreement is one of a series of similar securities purchase agreements to be entered into by the Company and certain other investors on substantially similar terms.

 

The Offer to Purchase of the undersigned being made hereby is subject to and is made pursuant to the following terms and conditions:

 

1.                   The Purchased Securities.

 

(a)                Upon the acceptance by the Company and subject to the conditions of this Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company shall deliver to the undersigned (i) a Note in the initial principal amount equal to the Initial Principal Amount and (ii) one X Warrant for each $1.00 of the Initial Principal Amount.

 

(b)                The number and kind of securities issuable upon the exercise of one or more X Warrants (or W Warrants issued in replacement of such X Warrants pursuant to the terms thereof, each a “Replacement W Warrant”) issuable upon conversion of the Note, including Z Warrants, shall be subject to adjustment, upon the issuance of such securities upon conversion of the Note, as if the Noteholder was a holder of such securities as of the date hereof, pursuant to the applicable terms and conditions set forth in Section 3 of the form of warrant attached hereto as Exhibit B.

 

(c)                Within a reasonable period of time following written request therefor by the Noteholder, or at any other time at the Company’s option prior to conversion of the Note, the Company will specify to the Noteholder the then current purchase price and reasonable details of any adjustments pursuant to Section 1 (b) hereof, including the number and exercise price of any X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) or other securities or property into which the Note shall be convertible following the occurrence of any of the events specified in Section 1(b) hereof. Delivery of such notice shall be deemed to be a final and binding determination with respect to any such adjustments unless challenged by the Noteholder within ten (10) days of receipt thereof, absent manifest error.

 

(d)                The initial Holder of the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) (and any assignee or other transferee, in each case, approved in advance by the Company) (the “Initial Holder”) shall have the right to exercise the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) on a cashless basis, at such Initial Holder’s sole discretion, in lieu of exercising the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) by payment of cash pursuant to Section 2(b) of the form of warrant attached hereto as Exhibit B, by surrendering such X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) for the number of B Units underlying the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of (A) the number of B Units underlying the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) and (B) the difference between the fair market value of such B Units and the Exercise Price (as defined in the form of warrant attached hereto as Exhibit B), by (y) the fair market value of such B Units; provided, however, that no such cashless exercise shall be permitted unless the fair market value is higher than the Exercise Price; provided, that the cashless exercise right under this Section 1(d) shall terminate upon any assignment, transfer or other conveyance by the Initial Holder which is not approved in advance by the Company, of (1) the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants ) or (2) the Note, in connection with which the Initial Holder acquired the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) (a) pursuant to conversion of the Note or (b) concurrently with the Note).

(e)                The cashless exercise right set forth in Section 1(d) hereof shall apply to any Z Warrants issued to the Initial Holder. Such Initial Holder shall have the right to exercise the Z Warrants on a cashless basis, at such Initial Holder’s sole discretion, in lieu of exercising the Z Warrants by payment of cash, by surrendering the Z Warrants for the number of shares of common stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) underlying the Z Warrants equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of (A) the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the Z Warrants and (B) the difference between the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock and the exercise price of the Z Warrants, by (y) the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock; provided, however, that no such cashless exercise shall be permitted unless the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock is higher than the exercise price of the Z Warrants; provided, that such cashless exercise right shall terminate upon any assignment, transfer or other conveyance by the Initial Holder which is not approved in advance by the Company, of (1) the Z Warrants or (2) the Note.

 

2.                   Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Company. By its acceptance of this Agreement, the Company shall be deemed to represent, warrant to and covenant with the undersigned as follows:

(b)                Authority of Agreement. The Company has the power and authority to accept, execute and deliver this Agreement and, upon acceptance by the Company (in whole or part), to carry out each of its obligations hereunder and under the Purchased Securities; the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement, the Purchased Securities and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Company; this Agreement, upon acceptance by the Company (in whole or part), and the Purchased Securities, upon issuance by the Company, constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms, except as the same may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally now or hereafter in effect and subject to the application of equitable principles and the availability of equitable remedies;

As of February 4, 2020, the authorized capital of the Company consisted of (i) 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock and (ii) 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock. As of February 4, 2020, there were issued and outstanding: (i) 12,509,024 shares of Common Stock; (ii) warrants to purchase 250,000 shares of Common Stock, at an exercise price of $1.50 per share; (iii) 1,441,483 warrants that will be automatically exchanged on a one-for-one basis into the same class of warrants issued in any public offering or private placement relating to the Company becoming a public reporting company, which the Company expects to be the Replacement W Warrants; (iv) warrants to purchase 504,000 B Units, at an exercise price of $4.00 per unit, constituting all of the warrants purchased in connection with the Company’s private placement of warrants commenced on December 10, 2019 (the “December 2019 Warrants”), which will be automatically exchanged on a one-for-one basis into the same class of warrants issued in any public offering or private placement relating to the Company becoming a public reporting company, which the Company expects to be the Replacement W Warrants; provided, however, that the holders of such December 2019 Warrants will have the right to exchange one or more December 2019 Warrants for a convertible promissory note with a principal amount equal to the purchase price for such December 2019 Warrants in connection with the Company’s proposed offering of Notes (the “Best Efforts Offering”) in the aggregate principal amount of up to $1,000,000 (subject to the Company’s right to increase the size of the Best Efforts Offering) through HCFP Capital Markets LLC, as placement agent, which is anticipated to be on terms substantially similar to the offering made hereby; (v) options to purchase 175,000 shares of Common Stock, at an exercise price of $1.50 per share; and (vi) options to purchase 425,000 shares of Common Stock, at an exercise price of $3.00 per share;

“THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), HAVE BEEN OR WILL BE ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF, AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, ASSIGNED, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT OR QUALIFIED OFFERING STATEMENT RELATED THERETO UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION OR QUALIFICATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND SUCH STATE SECURITIES LAWS.”

 

(i)                 Sophistication of the Undersigned. The undersigned has evaluated the merits and risks of purchasing the Purchased Securities and has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that the undersigned is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such purchase, is aware of and has considered the financial risks and financial hazards of purchasing the Purchased Securities and is able to bear the economic risk of purchasing the Purchased Securities, including the possibility of a complete loss with respect thereto. The undersigned has sufficient financial resources available to incur the loss of all or any portion of the undersigned's investment in the Company, has no need for liquidity in the investment in the Company and is able to bear the economic risk of the investment;

 

(j)                 Access to Information. The undersigned has had access to such information regarding the business and finances of the Company and the Purchased Securities, and has been provided the opportunity to discuss with the Company's management of the business, affairs and financial condition of the Company and such other matters with respect to the Company as would concern a reasonable person considering the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and/or concerned with the operation of the Company including, without limitation, one or more meetings and/or discussions with management of the Company;

 

 7 

 

 

(k)                No Guarantees. It has never been represented, guaranteed or warranted to the undersigned by the Company, or any of its respective officers, directors, agents, partners, members, managing members, managers, representatives or employees, or any other person, expressly or by implication, that:

 

(i)                 any return or gain will be realized by the undersigned from the undersigned's investment in the Securities;

 

(ii)               there will be any approximate or exact length of time that the undersigned will be required to remain as a holder of the Securities; or

 

(iii)             the past performance or experience on the part of the Company or any of its respective officers, directors, managing members, managers or other affiliates, its predecessors or of any other person, will in any way indicate any future results of the Company;

 

(l)                 No Other Representations, Warranties, Covenants or Agreements of the Company. Except as set forth in this Agreement or any document referred to herein, the Company has not made any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement with respect to the matters contained herein and therein;

 

(m)              Risk Factors. The undersigned understands that the risks described in this Agreement are not a complete list of risks involved in an investment in the Company. The undersigned fully understands that the Company has limited financial and operating history and that the Securities are speculative investments that involve a high degree of risk of loss of the undersigned’s entire investment. The undersigned is aware that no public market exists for the Securities, including the Purchased Securities, and that the Securities, including the Purchased Securities may not be sold without compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws. The undersigned understands that the Company has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the securities and that, even if a public market exists in the future, the undersigned may not readily be able to sell the Securities. The undersigned has considered each of these risks regarding an investment in the Company and the Securities. In addition to such risks, the undersigned is aware of and has considered the following risks regarding an investment in the Company:

 

1)The Company expects to incur losses as it develops its business. The extent of future losses and the time required to achieve profitability is highly uncertain. There can be no assurance that the Company will ever achieve a profitable level of operations or that profitability, if achieved, can be sustained on an ongoing basis;

 

2)The report of our independent registered public accounting firm as of December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 contains an explanatory paragraph indicating that there is substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern as a result of our loss from operations, recurring cash used in operating activities, accumulated deficit and absence of revenue generation. The Company’s recurring losses from operations may raise doubt regarding its ability to continue as a going concern. The perception that the Company may not be able to continue as a going concern may cause others to choose not to deal with the Company due to concerns about its ability to meet its contractual obligations;

 

3)The Company has never generated revenue, has never been profitable and does not expect to be profitable in the foreseeable future;

 

 8 

 

 

4)The Company does not currently generate cash from operations to fund its operations and will require substantial additional funds before it can expect to realize significant revenues from its business or generate cash flow sufficient to repay the Notes, which will need to be repaid from the proceeds of subsequent financings. The Company cannot be certain that additional financing will be available in the future to the extent required or that, if available, it will be on acceptable terms, and if the Company is unable to raise additional financing sufficient to repay the Notes it likely would default on any required repayment thereof. Additional financing will dilute the undersigned’s equity investment;

 

5)The Company faces competition from competitors, many of which have substantially greater capital resources and experience than the Company;

 

6)The Offer Price and the conversion and exercise prices for the Securities, as applicable, including the terms of the Note such as the interest rate and Maturity Date (as defined in the Note), have been arbitrarily determined and bear no relationship to the assets or book value of the Company, or other customary indicia of value or investment criteria;

 

7)The Company’s future success and competitive position is dependent upon proprietary intellectual property that we acquire (by license or otherwise) or develop, and we rely on patent, trade secret, trademark, and copyright laws to protect our intellectual property. The intellectual property owned or licensed by us may be invalidated, circumvented, infringed or challenged. The rights granted under our intellectual property (owned and licensed) may not provide competitive advantages to us. Any of our future patent applications may not be issued within the scope of the claims sought by us, if at all;

 

8)The Company’s success and ability to invest and grow depend largely on our ability to attract and retain highly skilled technical, professional, managerial, sales, and marketing personnel. Historically, competition for key personnel has been intense. The loss of services of any of the Company’s key personnel (including key personnel joining the Company through acquisitions), the inability to retain and attract qualified personnel in the future, or delays in hiring necessary personnel, particularly engineering and sales personnel, could make it difficult to meet key objectives, such as timely and effective product introductions and financial goals;

 

9)The Company’s directors, officers and principal stockholders beneficially own a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. As a result, they have the ability to control matters affecting the Company’s stockholders, including the election of our directors, and in-turn, the Company’s officers, the acquisition or disposition of its assets, and the future issuance of shares of Common Stock. Because they control such shares, investors will find it impossible to replace the Company’s directors and management if they disagree with the way its business is being operated;

 

10)The Company’s management will have discretion to use the funds obtained from this Agreement as it deems to be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. As a result, the success of the Company will be substantially dependent upon the discretion and judgment of the Company’s management with respect to application and allocation of the net proceeds of this Agreement. Investors in the Purchased Securities offered hereby will be entrusting their funds to the Company’s management, upon whose judgment and discretion such investors must depend;

 

11)The Company may redeem, whether in whole or in part, the X Warrants (or Replacement W Warrants) and the warrants issuable upon conversion of the Notes (together, the “Warrants”) and the Z Warrants (as defined in the X Warrant attached hereto as Exhibit B) upon thirty (30) days’ written notice to the holder(s) thereof at any time commencing October 1, 2022 and July 1, 2023 with respect to the Warrants and Z Warrants, respectively, prior to exercise or termination thereof, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions as set forth in the Warrants and Z Warrants; and

 

 9 

 

 

12)The Company may prepay one or more Notes without any obligation to prepay all Notes proportionately. As a result, the Company may prepay one or more Notes on a selective basis, in which case the undersigned’s Note may not be prepaid even if the Company prepays one or more other Notes; and

 

13)The spread of the novel coronavirus, which causes the disease now known as COVID-19, is a rapidly evolving public health emergency with global implications and at present the Company, as is common across industries and geographies, recognizes that it could be adversely affected by a range of factors and developments, largely beyond its control, and the Company is unable to predict the outcomes of this even on a short-term basis.  The Company continues to assess the impact of developments on its financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and liquidity.
