PROSPECTUS SUPPLEMENT SUMMARY

 

This summary contains basic information about us and this offering. Because it is a summary, it does not contain all of the information that you should consider before investing. Before you decide to invest in our common stock, you should read this entire prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus carefully, including the sections entitled “Risk Factors,” and our consolidated financial statements and the related notes and other documents incorporated by reference herein and in the accompanying prospectus.

 

OUR COMPANY

 

We provide high tech solutions for severe environments and the battlefield, including missile defense technologies for Aerospace and Defense and rugged mobile devices for the growing commercial Mobile Resource Management, or MRM, market. We design, develop, manufacture and supply customized military computer-based systems, simulators, automatic test equipment and electronic instruments, addressing a multi-billion-dollar defense industry. Solutions and systems are integrated into critical systems such as command and control, missile fire control, maintenance of military aircraft and missiles for the Israeli Air Force, Israeli Navy and by foreign defense entities. Our MRM division develops, manufactures and provides mobile computing platforms for the multibillion dollar mobile logistics management market in the U.S., Europe and Israel. American-manufactured systems are designed for outdoor and challenging work environments in trucking, distribution, logistics, public safety and construction.

 

We operate primarily through two Israel-based companies, Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd., or Enertec, our wholly-owned subsidiary, and Micronet Ltd, or Micronet, in which we have a controlling interest, which develop, manufacture, integrate and globally market rugged computers, tablets and computer-based systems and instruments for the commercial, Aerospace and Defense markets. Our products, solutions and services are designed to perform in severe environments and battlefield conditions.

 

Micronet is a publicly-traded company on Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange and operates in the growing commercial MRM market and is a global developer, manufacturer and provider of mobile computing platforms, designed for integration into fleet management and mobile workforce management solutions. In June 2014, Micronet expanded its MRM business and operations in the U.S. market through the acquisition of Beijer, or the Vehicle Business, and as a result adding to its business U.S.-based facilities which include manufacturing and technical support infrastructure, sales and marketing capabilities as well as expanding its U.S. customer base and presence with local fleets and local MRM service providers. As a result of this acquisition, Micronet currently operates via its Israeli and U.S. facilities, the first located in Azur, Israel, near Tel Aviv, and the second located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

Enertec operates in the Aerospace and Defense markets and designs, develops, manufactures and supplies various customized military computer-based systems, simulators, automatic test equipment and electronic instruments. Enertec’s solutions and systems are designed according to major aerospace integrators’ requirements and market technological needs and are integrated by them into critical systems such as command and control, missile fire control, maintenance of military aircraft and missiles for use by the Israeli Air Force, Israeli Navy and by foreign defense entities.

 

On March 30, 2017, the our Board of Directors approved a spin-off of Enertec into a standalone company. In addition, we are also exploring other alternatives to the spin-off, including, but not limited to, a sale of Enertec. To date, no definitive agreements have been reached with respect to the potential spin-off or sale of Enertec and there is no guarantee that we will be successful in completing the contemplated spin-off, or a sale of, Enertec.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our common stock involves significant risks. You should carefully consider the risk factors contained in this prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein and therein, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, or Annual Report, as well as all of the information contained below and elsewhere in this prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein, before you decide to invest in our common stock. Our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected as a result of any of such risks. The value of our common stock could decline as a result of any of these risks. You could lose all or part of your investment in our common stock. Some of our statements in sections entitled “Risk Factors” are forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties we have described are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also affect our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Risks Related to this Offering

 

You will experience immediate and substantial dilution in the net tangible book value per share of the common stock you purchase.

 

Since the price per share of our common stock being offered is higher than the net tangible book value per share of our common stock, you will suffer substantial dilution in the net tangible book value of the common stock you purchase in this offering. Based on the offering price of $0.90 per share, and after deducting the estimated offering expenses payable by us, if you purchase shares of common stock in this offering, you will suffer immediate and substantial dilution of $0.06 per share in the net tangible book value of the common stock. See the section entitled “Dilution” on page S-5 in this prospectus supplement for a more detailed discussion of the dilution you will incur if you purchase common stock in this offering.

 

Our management has significant flexibility in using the net proceeds of this offering.

 

We intend to use the net proceeds from this offering to pay $25,000 towards the remaining balance of a commitment fee pursuant to a Third Supplemental Agreement dated August 22, 2017 between the Company and YA II, approximately $150,000 towards the repayment of principal and interest to a Secured Promissory Note dated June 30, 2016 issued to YA II and the remaining balance for working capital and general corporate purposes. Our management will have significant flexibility in applying the net proceeds of this offering. The actual amounts and timing of expenditures will vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the amount of cash used in our operations and our research and development efforts.  Management’s failure to use these funds effectively would have an adverse effect on the value of our common stock and could make it more difficult and costly to raise funds in the future.

 

We may need additional financing in the future. We may be unable to obtain additional financing or if we obtain financing it may not be on terms favorable to us. You may lose your entire investment.

 

Based on our current plans, we believe our existing cash and cash equivalents and credit lines, along with cash generated from this offering, will be sufficient to fund our operating expense and capital requirements for at least twelve months from the date hereof, although there is no assurance of this and we may need funds in the future. If our capital resources are insufficient to meet future capital requirements, we will have to raise additional funds. If we are unable to obtain additional funds on terms favorable to us, we may be required to cease or reduce our operating activities.  If we must cease or reduce our operating activities, you may lose your entire investment.

 

Our share price may be volatile.

 

The market price of our common stock has fluctuated in the past. Consequently, the current market price of our common stock may not be indicative of future market prices, and we may be unable to sustain or increase the value of an investment in our common stock.

 

 S-3 

 

 

We do not anticipate paying any dividends.

 

No dividends have been paid on our common stock. We do not intend to pay cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future, and anticipate that profits, if any, received from operations will be reinvested in our business. Any decision to pay dividends will depend upon our profitability at the time, cash available and other relevant factors.

 

Our actual financial results may differ materially from any guidance we may publish from time to time.

 

We have in the past and may, from time to time, voluntarily publish guidance regarding our future performance that represents our management’s estimates as of the date of relevant release. Any such guidance is based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that, while presented with numerical specificity, is inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond our control and are based upon specific assumptions with respect to future business decisions, some of which will change. Guidance is necessarily speculative in nature, and it can be expected that some or all of the assumptions of the guidance furnished by us will not materialize or will vary significantly from actual results. Further, our sales during any given year may be unevenly distributed as individual orders tend to close in greater numbers immediately prior to the relevant year end. Our revenues from individual customers may also fluctuate from time to time based on the timing and the terms under which further orders are received and the duration of the delivery and implementation of such orders. Therefore, if our projected sales do not close before the end of the relevant year, our actual results may be inconsistent with our published guidance. Accordingly, our guidance is only an estimate of what management believes is realizable as of the date of release. Actual results may vary from the guidance and the variations may be material. Investors should also recognize that the reliability of any forecasted financial data diminishes the farther in the future that the data is forecast. In light of the foregoing, investors are urged to consider any guidance we may publish in context and not to place undue reliance on it.

 

We are exploring a potential spin-off, or alternatively, a sale of, our aerospace and defense division. We may not be successful in implementing a spin-off or sale of our aerospace and defense division.

 

On March 30, 2017, our Board of Directors approved a spin-off of our aerospace and defense division into a standalone company. In addition, we are exploring other alternatives to the spin-off, including, but not limited to, a sale of our aerospace and defense division. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in completing the contemplated spin-off, or a sale of, our aerospace and defense division. If we are able to complete sale of our aerospace and defense division, there is no guarantee that we will be able to do so on terms that are favorable to us or that our stockholders will benefit from such a transaction. In addition, even if we are able to complete the contemplated spin-off, there is no guarantee that our aerospace and defense division will become a profitable, standalone company or that our stockholders will benefit from such a transaction.

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

We estimate that our net proceeds from the sale of the shares of common stock offered pursuant to this prospectus supplement will be approximately $495,000, after deducting the estimated offering expenses that are payable by us.

 

We intend to use the net proceeds from this offering to pay $25,000 towards the remaining balance of a commitment fee pursuant to a Third Supplemental Agreement dated August 22, 2017 between the Company and YA II PN Ltd., or YA II, approximately $150,000 towards the repayment of principal and interest to a Secured Promissory Note dated June 30, 2016, or the June 2016 Note, issued to YA II and the remaining balance for working capital and general corporate purposes. The outstanding principal balance of the June 2016 Note bears interest at 7% per annum and matures on December 31, 2017.

 

We have not yet determined the amount of net proceeds to be used specifically for any of the foregoing purposes. Accordingly, our management will have significant discretion and flexibility in applying the net proceeds from this offering.

 

DIVIDEND POLICY

 

We have never declared or paid cash dividends on our common stock. We currently intend to retain our future earnings, if any, for use in our business and therefore do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Payment of future dividends, if any, will be at the discretion of our Board after taking into account various factors, including our financial condition, operating results, and current and anticipated cash needs.

 

 S-4 

 

 

DILUTION

 

Purchasers of common stock offered by this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus will suffer immediate and substantial dilution in the net tangible book value per share of common stock. Our net tangible book value as of September 30, 2017 was approximately $6,448,000 or $0.836 per share of our common stock. Net tangible book value per share represents the amount of tangible assets less total liabilities, divided by 7,706,307 shares of common stock, which was the number of shares of our common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2017.

 

Dilution in net tangible book value per share represents the difference between the amount per share paid by purchasers in this offering and the net tangible book value per share of our common stock immediately after this offering. After giving effect to the sale of shares of common stock in this offering at an offering price of $0.90 per share, and after deducting the estimated offering expenses payable by us, our as adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2017 would have been approximately $0.84 per share of common stock. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $0.004 per share of common stock to our existing stockholders and an immediate dilution in net tangible book value of $0.06 per share of common stock to investors participating in this offering. The following table illustrates this per share dilution:

 

Public offering price per share       $0.90 
Net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2017  $0.84      
Increase per share attributable to this offering  $0.004      
           
Adjusted net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2017 after this offering       $0.84 
           
Dilution per share to new investors in this offering       $0.06 

 

The foregoing illustration does not reflect potential dilution from the exercise of outstanding options or warrants to purchase shares of our common stock.

 

The discussion and tables above are based on 7,706,307 shares outstanding as of September 30, 2017 and excludes as of that date:

 

 

1,000,000 shares of our common stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding stock options under our 2012 Stock Incentive Plan at a weighted average exercise price of $4.30 per share, with 454,000 shares of common stock remaining available for future grant under such plan as of September 30, 2017;

     
 

100,000 shares of our common stock underlying restricted stock grants issued pursuant to our 2014 Stock Incentive Plan, with 45,775 shares of common stock remaining available for future grant under such plan as of September 30, 2017; and

     
  1,512,500 shares of our common stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding warrants at a weighted average exercise price of $3.83 per share as of September 30, 2017.

 

 S-5 

 

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

The offering price of the shares of common stock offered by this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus per share has been determined based upon arm’s length negotiations between the purchaser and us. We have not engaged any agent to assist in the sale of the shares of common stock offered by this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. The shares sold pursuant to this prospectus supplement are being sold to D-Beta One EQ, Ltd., an affiliate of YA II, an existing lender. 

 

Expenses

 

We estimate the total offering expenses of this offering that will be payable by us will be approximately $5,000, which includes legal, accounting and printing costs and various other fees.

 

Our obligation to issue and sell shares of common stock to the purchasers is subject to the conditions set forth in the securities purchase agreement between us and the purchaser, which may be waived by us at our discretion. A purchaser’s obligation to purchase shares of common stock is subject to the conditions set forth in the securities purchase agreement between us and the purchaser, which may also be waived. We currently anticipate that the delivery of the shares of common stock will occur on or about November 22, 2017. At the closing, The Depository Trust Company will credit the shares to the account of the purchasers.

OUR COMPANY

 

This summary highlights information contained in the documents incorporated herein by reference. Before making an investment decision, you should read the entire prospectus, and our other filings with the SEC, including those filings incorporated herein by reference, carefully, including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”

 

We provide high tech solutions for severe environments and the battlefield, including missile defense technologies for the Aerospace & Defense market and rugged mobile devices for the growing commercial Mobile Resource Management, or MRM, market.

On March 30, 2017, our Board of Directors approved a spinoff of Enertec, our defense and aerospace division, into a stand-alone entity. Upon completion, if such spinoff moves forward, our shareholders will own 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock in a new entity on a pro-rata basis. The spinoff will be subject to certain customary conditions and shareholder approval of the spinoff is not required. Our Board of Directors is still considering whether, and when, to move forward with the spinoff. There is no guarantee that we will proceed with implementing the spinoff or whether it will be successful in doing so.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves significant risks. You should carefully consider the risk factors contained in any prospectus supplement and in our filings with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, as well as all of the information contained in this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein, before you decide to invest in our securities. Our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected as a result of any of such risks.  The value of our securities could decline as a result of any of these risks.  You could lose all or part of your investment in our securities. Some of our statements in sections entitled “Risk Factors” are forward-looking statements.  The risks and uncertainties we have described are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also affect our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

 

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents we incorporate by reference contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws regarding our business, financial condition, expenditures, results of operations and prospects. Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “planned expenditures,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates”, “may”, “will”, “should” or the negative thereof or other similar expressions or variations of such words are intended to identify forward-looking statements, but are not deemed to represent an all-inclusive means of identifying forward-looking statements as denoted in this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents we incorporate by reference.  Additionally, statements concerning future matters are forward-looking statements.

 

Although forward-looking statements in this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents we incorporate by reference reflect the good faith judgment of our management, such statements can only be based on facts and factors known by us as of such date. Consequently, forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties and actual results and outcomes may differ materially from the results and outcomes discussed in or anticipated by the forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences in results and outcomes include, without limitation, those specifically addressed under the heading “Risk Factors” herein and in the documents we incorporate by reference, as well as those discussed elsewhere in this prospectus and any prospectus supplement.  Readers are urged not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this prospectus, any prospectus supplement or the respective documents incorporated by reference, as applicable.  Except as required bylaw, we undertake no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements in order to reflect any event or circumstance that may arise after the date of such forward-looking statements. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made throughout the entirety of this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference, which attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

Unless we otherwise indicate in the applicable prospectus supplement, we currently intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of the securities for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of loans, expanding our sales and marketing efforts and increasing our product offerings, including through potential acquisitions or purchases of relevant licenses.

 

We may set forth additional information on the use of net proceeds from the sale of securities we offer under this prospectus in a prospectus supplement relating to the specific offering. Pending the application of the net proceeds, we intend to invest the net proceeds in a combination of short-term bank deposits or interest-bearing, investment-grade securities, subject to any investment policies our management may determine from time to time.

 

THE SECURITIES WE MAY OFFER

 

The descriptions of the securities contained in this prospectus, together with any applicable prospectus supplement, summarize the material terms and provisions of the various types of securities that we may offer. We will describe in any applicable prospectus supplement relating to any securities the particular terms of the securities offered by that prospectus supplement. If we so indicate in any applicable prospectus supplement, the terms of the securities may differ from the terms we have summarized below. We may also include in any prospectus supplement information, where applicable, about material U.S. federal income tax consequences relating to the securities, and the securities exchange or market, if any, on which the securities will be listed.

 

We may sell from time to time, in one or more offerings, one or more of the following securities:

 

Common stock;

 

Warrants to purchase common stock; and

 

Units of the securities mentioned above.

 

The total initial offering price of all securities that we may issue in these offerings will not exceed $30,000,000.

 

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

The following summary is a description of the material terms of our share capital. We encourage you to read our certificate of incorporation, as amended, and amended and restated bylaws which have been filed with the SEC, as well as the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, or DGCL.

 

General

 

As of the date of this prospectus, our authorized capital stock consisted of 25,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share. Our board of directors may establish the rights and preferences of the preferred stock from time to time, none of which is currently outstanding. As of the date of this prospectus, there were 6,994,348 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding.

 

Common Stock

 

Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote per share. Our certificate of incorporation, as amended, does not provide for cumulative voting. Holders of our common stock are entitled to receive ratably such dividends, if any, as may be declared by our board of directors out of legally available funds. Upon liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, the holders of our common stock are entitled to share ratably in all of our assets which are legally available for distribution, after payment of or provision for all liabilities and the liquidation preference of any outstanding preferred stock. The holders of our common stock have no preemptive, subscription, redemption or conversion rights.

 

 3 

 

 

Preferred Stock

 

Our certificate of incorporation, as amended, provides that our board of directors is authorized to provide for the issuance of shares of preferred stock in one or more series and, by filing a certificate of designations pursuant to the applicable law of the State of Delaware, to establish from time to time for each such series the number of shares to be included in each such series and to fix the designations, powers, rights and preferences of the shares of each such series, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof. The authority of the board of directors with respect to each series of preferred stock includes, but is not limited to, determination of the following:

 

the distinctive designation of such class or series and the number of shares to constitute such class or series;

 

the rate at which dividends on the shares of such class or series shall be declared and paid or set aside for payment, whether dividends at the rate so determined shall be cumulative or accruing, and whether the shares of such class or series shall be entitled to any participating or other dividends in addition to dividends at the rate so determined, and if so, on what terms;

 

the right or obligation, if any, of the Company to redeem shares of the particular class or series of preferred stock and, if redeemable, the price, terms and manner of such redemption;

 

the special and relative rights and preferences, if any, and the amount or amounts per share, which the shares of such class or series of preferred stock shall be entitled to receive upon any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company;

 

the terms and conditions, if any, upon which shares of such class or series shall be convertible into, or exchangeable for, shares of capital stock of any other class or series, including the price or prices or the rate or rates of conversion or exchange and the terms of adjustment, if any;

 

the obligation, if any, of the Company to retire, redeem or purchase shares of such class or series pursuant to a sinking fund or fund of a similar nature or otherwise, and the terms and conditions of such obligations;

 

voting rights, if any, on the issuance of additional shares of such class or series or any shares of any other class or series of preferred stock;

 

limitations, if any, on the issuance of additional shares of such class or series or any shares of any other class or series of preferred stock; and

 

such other preferences, powers, qualifications, special or relative rights and privileges as the board of directors may deem advisable and are not inconsistent with the law and the provisions of our certificate of incorporation, as amended.

Anti-Takeover Provisions

 

Delaware Law

 

We are subject to Section 203 of the DGCL, or Section 203. This provision generally prohibits a Delaware corporation from engaging in any business combination with any interested stockholder for a period of three years following the date the stockholder became an interested stockholder, unless:

 

prior to such date, the board of directors approved either the business combination or the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder;

 

upon consummation of the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced, excluding for purposes of determining the number of shares outstanding those shares owned by persons who are directors and also officers and by employee stock plans in which employee participants do not have the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer; or

 

on or subsequent to such date, the business combination is approved by the board of directors and authorized at an annual meeting or special meeting of stockholders and not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock that is not owned by the interested stockholder.

 

Section 203 defines a business combination to include:

 

any merger or consolidation involving the corporation and the interested stockholder;

 

any sale, transfer, pledge or other disposition of 10% or more of the assets of the corporation involving the interested stockholder;

 

subject to certain exceptions, any transaction that results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder;

 

any transaction involving the corporation that has the effect of increasing the proportionate share of the stock of any class or series of the corporation beneficially owned by the interested stockholder; or

 

the receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation.

 

In general, Section 203 defines an “interested stockholder” as any entity or person beneficially owning 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation, or an affiliate or associate of the corporation and was the owner of 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation at any time within three years prior to the time of determination of interested stockholder status; and any entity or person affiliated with or controlling or controlled by such entity or person.

 

The provisions of Section 203 may encourage persons interested in acquiring us to negotiate in advance with our board of directors, since the stockholder approval requirement would be avoided if a majority of the directors then in office approves either the business combination or the transaction which results in any such person becoming an interested stockholder. Such provisions also may have the effect of preventing changes in our management.

 

Since we have not elected to be exempt from the restrictions imposed under Section 203, we are subject to Section 203 because our shares of common stock are listed on a national securities exchange as of our listing on Nasdaq on April 29, 2013.  Unless we adopt an amendment to our certificate of incorporation, as amended, by action of our stockholders expressly electing not to be governed by Section 203, we are generally subject to Section 203, except that the restrictions contained in Section 203 would not apply if the business combination is with an interested stockholder who became an interested stockholder before the time that we listed on Nasdaq.

 

 5 

 

 

Section 214 of the DGCL provides that stockholders are denied the right to cumulate votes in the election of directors unless our certificate of incorporation, as amended, provides otherwise. Our certificate of incorporation, as amended, does not provide for cumulative voting. These statutory provisions could delay or frustrate the removal of incumbent directors or a change in control of our Company. They could also discourage, impede, or prevent a merger, tender offer, or proxy contest, even if such event would be favorable to the interests of our stockholders.

 

Authorized but Unissued Shares

 

Our authorized but unissued shares of common stock will be available for future issuance without stockholder approval. We may use additional shares of common stock for a variety of purposes, including future offerings to raise additional capital or as compensation to third party service providers. The existence of authorized but unissued shares of common stock could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of us by means of a proxy contest, tender offer, merger or otherwise.

 

Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaw Provisions

 

Our certificate of incorporation, as amended, and amended and restated bylaws contain provisions that could have the effect of discouraging potential acquisition proposals or making a tender offer or delaying or preventing a change in control, including changes a stockholder might consider favorable. In particular, the certificate of incorporation, as amended, and amended and restated bylaws, as applicable, among other things:

 

provide our board of directors with the ability to issue up to 5,000,000 shares of undesignated preferred stock and to determine the rights, preferences and privileges of such shares, without stockholder approval;

 

provide our board of directors with the ability, in certain circumstances, to alter our bylaws without stockholder approval;

 

provide our board of directors with the exclusive authority to fix the number of directors constituting the whole board; and

 

provide that vacancies on our board of directors may be filled by a majority of directors in office, although less than a quorum.

 

Such provisions may have the effect of discouraging a third-party from acquiring us, even if doing so would be beneficial to our stockholders. These provisions are intended to enhance the likelihood of continuity and stability in the composition of our board of directors and in its policies, and to discourage some types of transactions that may involve an actual or threatened change in control of our Company. These provisions are designed to reduce our vulnerability to an unsolicited acquisition proposal and to discourage some tactics that may be used in proxy fights. We believe that the benefits of increased protection of our potential ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure our Company outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging such proposals because, among other things, negotiation of such proposals could result in an improvement of their terms. However, these provisions could have the effect of discouraging others from making tender offers for our shares that could result from actual or rumored takeover attempts. These provisions also may have the effect of preventing changes in our management.

 

Transfer Agent and Registrar for Common Stock

 

The current transfer agent and registrar for our common stock is Transfer Online LLC.

 

Listing

 

Our common stock is listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “MICT”.

DESCRIPTION OF WARRANTS

 

The following description, together with the additional information we may include in any applicable prospectus supplement, summarizes the material terms and provisions of the warrants that we may offer under this prospectus and the related warrant agreements and warrant certificates. While the terms summarized below will apply generally to any warrants that we may offer, we will describe the particular terms of any series of warrants in more detail in the applicable prospectus supplement. If we so indicate in a prospectus supplement, the terms of any warrants offered under that prospectus supplement may differ from the terms we describe below. Specific warrant agreements will contain additional important terms and provisions and will be incorporated by reference as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part. In addition, we currently have outstanding warrants to acquire 1,012,500 shares of our common stock, as described below under “Outstanding Warrants”.

 

General

 

We may issue warrants for the purchase of common stock in one or more series. We may issue warrants independently or together with common stock, and the warrants may be attached to or separate from the common stock.

 

We will evidence each series of warrants by warrant certificates that we will issue under a separate agreement or by warrant agreements that we will enter into directly with the purchasers of the warrants. If we evidence warrants by warrant certificates, we will enter into a warrant agreement with a warrant agent. We will indicate the name and address of the warrant agent, if any, in the applicable prospectus supplement relating to a particular series of warrants.

 

We will describe in the applicable prospectus supplement the terms of the series of warrants, including:

 

the offering price and aggregate number of warrants offered;
   
the currency for which the warrants may be purchased or exercised;
   
if applicable, the terms of the common stock with which the warrants are issued and the number of warrants issued with such common stock;
   
if applicable, the date on and after which the warrants and the related common stock will be separately transferable;
   
the number of shares of common stock purchasable upon the exercise of one warrant and the price at which these shares may be purchased upon such exercise;
   
the manner in which the warrants may be exercised, which may include by cashless exercise;
   
the effect of any merger, consolidation, sale or other disposition of our business on the warrant agreement and the warrants;
   
the terms of any rights to redeem or call the warrants;
   
any provisions for changes to or adjustments in the exercise price or number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants;
   
the dates on which the right to exercise the warrants will commence and expire;
   
the manner in which the warrant agreement and warrants may be modified;
   
the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of holding or exercising the warrants;

 

 7 

 

 

the terms of the common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants; and
   
any other specific terms, preferences, rights or limitations of or restrictions on the warrants.

 

Before exercising their warrants, holders of warrants will not have any of the rights of holders of the common stock purchasable upon such exercise, including the right to receive dividends, if any, or payments upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up or to exercise voting rights, if any.

 

Exercise of Warrants

 

Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase the number of shares of common stock that we specify in the applicable prospectus supplement at the exercise price that we describe in the applicable prospectus supplement. Unless we otherwise specify in the applicable prospectus supplement, holders of the warrants may exercise the warrants at any time up to 5:00 P.M., Eastern U.S. time, on the expiration date that we set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement.  After the close of business on the expiration date, unexercised warrants will become void.

 

Holders of the warrants may exercise the warrants by delivering to the warrant agent or us the warrant certificate or warrant agreement representing the warrants to be exercised together with specified information, and by paying the required amount to the warrant agent or us in immediately available funds, as provided in the applicable prospectus supplement. We will set forth on the reverse side of the warrant certificate or in the warrant agreement and in the applicable prospectus supplement the information that the holder of the warrant will be required to deliver to the warrant agent or us in connection with such exercise.

 

Upon receipt of the required payment and the warrant certificate or the warrant agreement, as applicable, properly completed and duly executed at the corporate trust office of the warrant agent, if any, at our offices or at any other office indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will issue and deliver the common stock purchasable upon such exercise. If fewer than all of the warrants represented by the warrant certificate or warrant agreement are exercised, then we will issue a new warrant certificate or warrant agreement for the remaining amount of warrants.

 

Enforceability of Rights by Holders of Warrants

 

If we appoint a warrant agent, any warrant agent will act solely as our agent under the applicable warrant agreement and will not assume any obligation or relationship of agency or trust with any holder of any warrant. A single bank or trust company may act as warrant agent for more than one issue of warrants. A warrant agent will have no duty or responsibility in case of any default by us under the applicable warrant agreement or warrant, including any duty or responsibility to initiate any proceedings at law or otherwise, or to make any demand upon us. Any holder of a warrant may, without the consent of the related warrant agent or the holder of any other warrant, enforce by appropriate legal action its right to exercise, and receive the securities purchasable upon exercise of, its warrants.

 

 Outstanding Warrants

 

We issued in the past warrants to purchase shares of our common stock.

 

On June 30, 2016, in connection with the issuance of a note, we issued a five-year warrant to purchase 66,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $4.30 per share to YA II PN, Ltd., or YA II. On October 28, 2016, in connection with the issuance of an additional note, we issue a five-year warrant to purchase 66,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $3.00 per share to YA II. On December 22, 2016, in connection with the execution of a supplemental agreement and issuance of an additional note, we issue a five-year warrant to purchase 120,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $3.00 per share to YA II. On June 8, 2017, in connection with the execution of a supplemental agreement and the issuance of an additional note, we issued a five-year warrant to purchase 90,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share to YA II. In addition, on June 8, 2017, we agreed to amend the exercise price of warrants to purchase 66,000 shares of our common stock issued to YA II on June 30, 2016, with an original exercise price of $4.30 per share, warrants to purchase 66,000 shares of our common stock issued to YA II on October 28, 2016, with an original exercise price of $3.00 per share, and warrants to purchase 120,000 shares of our common stock issued to YA II on December 22, 2016, with an original exercise price of $3.00 per share, to $2.00 per share.

In the second quarter of 2013, we closed a public offering of shares of common stock and warrants to purchase shares of common stock. The following is a summary of certain terms and provisions of the warrants sold in the public offering and is not complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by the provisions of the form of the warrant, which was previously filed with the SEC by the Company.

 

Exercisability. The Warrants are exercisable immediately and at any time up to April 23, 2018. The Warrants are exercisable, at the option of each holder, in whole or in part by delivering to us a duly executed exercise notice accompanied by payment in full for the number of shares of our common stock purchased upon such exercise (except in the case of a cashless exercise as discussed below). The holder will not have the right to exercise any portion of the warrant if the holder (together with its affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of our common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of the Warrants.

 

Cashless Exercise. In the event that a registration statement covering shares of common stock underlying the Warrants, or an exemption from registration, is not available for the resale of such shares of common stock underlying the Warrants, the holder may, in its sole discretion, exercise the Warrant in whole or in part and, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to us upon such exercise in payment of the aggregate exercise price, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the net number of shares of common stock determined according to the formula set forth in the Warrant. In no event shall we be required to make any cash payments or net cash settlement to the registered holder in lieu of issuance of common stock underlying the Warrants. A registration statement is currently effective that covers the shares underlying the warrants.

 

Exercise Price. The initial exercise price per share of common stock purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants is $6.25. The exercise price is subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting our common stock and also upon any distributions of assets, including cash, stock or other property to our stockholders.

 

Fundamental Transaction. If, at any time while the warrants are outstanding, (1) we consolidate or merge with or into another corporation and we are not the surviving corporation, (2) we sell, lease, license, assign, transfer, convey or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets, (3) any purchase offer, tender offer or exchange offer (whether by us or another individual or entity) is completed pursuant to which holders of our shares of common stock are permitted to sell, tender or exchange their shares of common stock for other securities, cash or property and has been accepted by the holders of 50% or more of our outstanding shares of common stock, (4) we effect any reclassification or recapitalization of our shares of common stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which our shares of common stock are converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property, or (5) we consummate a stock or share purchase agreement or other business combination with another person or entity whereby such other person or entity acquires more than 50% of our outstanding shares of common stock, each, a Fundamental Transaction, then upon any subsequent exercise of the Warrants, the holders thereof will have the right to receive the same amount and kind of securities, cash or property as it would have been entitled to receive upon the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction if it had been, immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, the holder of the number of Warrant shares then issuable upon exercise of the Warrant, and any additional consideration payable as part of the Fundamental Transaction.

 

Rights as a Stockholder. Except as otherwise provided in the Warrants or by virtue of such holder's ownership of shares of our common stock, the holder of a Warrant does not have the rights or privileges of a holder of our common stock, including any voting rights, until the holder exercises the warrant.

DESCRIPTION OF UNITS

 

We may issue, in one or more series, units consisting of common stock and warrants for the purchase of common stock.  While the terms we have summarized below will apply generally to any units that we may offer under this prospectus, we will describe the particular terms of any series of units in more detail in the applicable prospectus supplement.  The terms of any units offered under a prospectus supplement may differ from the terms described below.

 

We will file as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part, or will incorporate by reference from reports that we file with the SEC, the form of unit agreement that describes the terms of the series of units we are offering, and any supplemental agreements, before the issuance of the related series of units.  The following summary of material terms and provisions of the units is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, all the provisions of the unit agreement and any supplemental agreements applicable to a particular series of units.  We urge you to read the applicable prospectus supplement related to the particular series of units that we may offer under this prospectus and the complete unit agreement and any supplemental agreements that contain the terms of the units.

 

Each unit will be issued so that the holder of the unit is also the holder of each security included in the unit.  Thus, the holder of a unit will have the rights and obligations of a holder of each included security.  The unit agreement under which a unit is issued may provide that the securities included in the unit may not be held or transferred separately, at any time or at any time before a specified date.

 

We will describe in the applicable prospectus supplement the terms of the series of units, including:

 

the designation and terms of the units, including whether and under what circumstances the securities comprising the units may be held or transferred separately;
   
any provisions of the governing unit agreement that differ from those described herein; and
   
any provisions for the issuance, payment, settlement, transfer or exchange of the units or the securities comprising the units.

 

The provisions described in this section, as well as those described under “Description of Capital Stock” and “Description of Warrants,” will apply to each unit and to any common stock or warrant included in each unit, respectively.

 

We may issue units in such amounts and in such distinct series as we determine.

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We may sell the securities being offered hereby in one or more of the following ways from time to time:

 

through agents to the public or to investors;
   
to one or more underwriters for resale to the public or to investors;

 

 10 

 

 

to the extent we are eligible, in “at the market offerings,” within the meaning of Rule 415(a)(4) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, to or through a market maker or into an existing trading market, on an exchange or otherwise;

 

directly to investors in privately negotiated transactions;

 

directly to a purchaser pursuant to what is known as an “equity line of credit” as described below; or

 

through a combination of these methods of sale.

 

The securities that we distribute by any of these methods may be sold, in one or more transactions, at:

 

a fixed price or prices, which may be changed;

 

market prices prevailing at the time of sale;

 

prices related to prevailing market prices; or

 

negotiated prices.

 

The accompanying prospectus supplement will describe the terms of the offering of our securities, including:

 

the name or names of any agents or underwriters;

 

any securities exchange or market on which the common stock may be listed;

 

the purchase price and commission, if any, to be paid in connection with the sale of the securities being offered and the proceeds we will receive from the sale;

 

any options pursuant to which underwriters may purchase additional securities from us;

 

any underwriting discounts or agency fees and other items constituting underwriters’ or agents’ compensation;

 

any public offering price; and

 

any discounts or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to dealers.

 

If underwriters are used in the sale, they will acquire the securities for their own account and may resell the securities from time to time in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of the sale. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase the securities will be subject to the conditions set forth in the applicable underwriting agreement. We may offer the securities to the public through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters or by underwriters without a syndicate. Subject to certain conditions, the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all the securities offered by the prospectus supplement. We may change from time to time the public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to dealers.

 

If we use a dealer in the sale of the securities being offered pursuant to this prospectus or any prospectus supplement, we will sell the securities to the dealer, as principal. The dealer may then resell the securities to the public at varying prices to be determined by the dealer at the time of resale. The names of the dealers and the terms of the transaction will be specified in a prospectus supplement.

 

 11 

 

 

We may sell the securities directly or through agents we designate from time to time. We will name any agent involved in the offering and sale of securities and we will describe any commissions we will pay the agent in the prospectus supplement. Unless the prospectus supplement states otherwise, any agent will act on a best-efforts basis for the period of its appointment.

 

We may also sell securities pursuant to an “equity line of credit”. In such event, we will enter into a common stock purchase agreement with the purchaser to be named therein, which will be described in a Current Report on Form 8-K that we will file with the SEC. In that Form 8-K, we will describe the total amount of securities that we may require the purchaser to purchase under the purchase agreement and the other terms of purchase, and any rights that the purchaser is granted to purchase securities from us. In addition to our issuance of shares of common stock to the equity line purchaser pursuant to the purchase agreement, this prospectus (and the applicable prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part) also covers the resale of those shares from time to time by the equity line purchaser to the public. The equity line purchaser will be considered an “underwriter” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act. Its resales may be effected through a number of methods, including without limitation, ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker solicits purchasers and block trades in which the broker or dealer so engaged will attempt to sell the shares as agent, but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction.  The equity line purchaser will be bound by various anti-manipulation rules of the SEC and may not, for example, engage in any stabilization activity in connection with its resales of our securities and may not bid for or purchase any of our securities or attempt to induce any person to purchase any of our securities other than as permitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act.

 

We may sell our securities directly or through agents we designate from time to time. We will name any agent involved in the offering and sale of our common stock, and we will describe any commissions we will pay the agent in the prospectus supplement. Unless the prospectus supplement states otherwise, our agent will act on a best-efforts basis for the period of its appointment.

 

We may provide underwriters and agents with indemnification against civil liabilities related to offerings pursuant to this prospectus, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or contribution with respect to payments that the underwriters or agents may make with respect to these liabilities. Underwriters and agents may engage in transactions with, or perform services for, us in the ordinary course of business. We will describe such relationships in the prospectus supplement naming the underwriter or agent and the nature of any such relationship.

 

Rules of the SEC may limit the ability of any underwriters to bid for or purchase securities before the distribution of the shares of common stock is completed. However, underwriters may engage in the following activities in accordance with the rules:

 

Stabilizing transactions — Underwriters may make bids or purchases for the purpose of pegging, fixing or maintaining the price of the shares, so long as stabilizing bids do not exceed a specified maximum.
   
Options to purchase additional stock and syndicate covering transactions — Underwriters may sell more shares of our common stock than the number of shares that they have committed to purchase in any underwritten offering. This creates a short position for the underwriters. This short position may involve either “covered” short sales or “naked” short sales. Covered short sales are short sales made in an amount not greater than the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares in any underwritten offering. The underwriters may close out any covered short position either by exercising their option or by purchasing shares in the open market. To determine how they will close the covered short position, the underwriters will consider, among other things, the price of shares available for purchase in the open market, as compared to the price at which they may purchase shares through their option. Naked short sales are short sales in excess of the option. The underwriters must close out any naked position by purchasing shares in the open market. A naked short position is more likely to be created if the underwriters are concerned that, in the open market after pricing, there may be downward pressure on the price of the shares that could adversely affect investors who purchase shares in the offering.

 

 12 

 

 

Penalty bids — If underwriters purchase shares in the open market in a stabilizing transaction or syndicate covering transaction, they may reclaim a selling concession from other underwriters and selling group members who sold those shares as part of the offering.

 

Similar to other purchase transactions, an underwriter’s purchases to cover the syndicate short sales or to stabilize the market price of our common stock may have the effect of raising or maintaining the market price of our common stock or preventing or mitigating a decline in the market price of our common stock. As a result, the price of the shares of our common stock may be higher than the price that might otherwise exist in the open market. The imposition of a penalty bid might also have an effect on the price of shares if it discourages resales of the shares.

 

If commenced, the underwriters may discontinue any of these activities at any time.

 

Our common stock is traded on Nasdaq.  One or more underwriters may make a market in our common stock, but the underwriters will not be obligated to do so and may discontinue market making at any time without notice. We cannot give any assurance as to liquidity of the trading market for our common stock.

 

Any underwriters who are qualified market makers on Nasdaq may engage in passive market making transactions in that market in the common stock in accordance with Rule 103 of Regulation M, during the business day prior to the pricing of the offering, before the commencement of offers or sales of the common stock. Passive market makers must comply with applicable volume and price limitations and must be identified as passive market makers. In general, a passive market maker must display its bid at a price not in excess of the highest independent bid for such security; if all independent bids are lowered below the passive market maker’s bid, however, the passive market maker’s bid must then be lowered when certain purchase limits are exceeded.

 

In compliance with guidelines of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA, the maximum commission or discount to be received by any FINRA member or independent broker dealer may not exceed 8% of the aggregate amount of the securities offered pursuant to this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement.
