Item 1.01       Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On October 21, 2014, CEL-SCI Corporation (the “Company”), and Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd., as the representative of the Underwriters, entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) whereby the Company will issue and sell 7,894,737 shares of the Company’s common stock, as well as warrants to purchase an additional 1,973,684 shares of common stock.   For every four shares sold, the Company will issue to investors in this offering one warrant.  The warrants are immediately exercisable, expire October 11, 2018 and have an exercise price of $1.25. The warrants are traded on the NYSE MKT under the symbol “CVM WS”.  The shares of common stock and warrants are being sold at a price of $0.76 per share and quarter warrant, minus underwriting discounts and commissions.   The common stock and warrants will separate immediately. The offering is expected to close on or about October 24, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.
 
The net proceeds from the offering are expected to be approximately $5,500,000, after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated expenses payable by the Company.
 
Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, subject to certain exceptions, the Company, and its directors and officers have agreed not to sell or otherwise dispose of any of the Company’s Common Stock held by them for a period ending 60 days after the date of the Underwriting Agreement without first obtaining the written consent of Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd., as representative of the Underwriters, subject to certain exceptions.
 
The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and agreements by the Company, and customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other obligations of the parties, and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties. These representations, warranties and covenants are not factual information to investors about the Company.
 
The offering is being made pursuant to the Registration Statement and Prospectus Supplement discussed below under Item 8.01. The Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report, and the description of the terms of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
