|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On May 16, 2016, Inventergy Global, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional investors (the “Purchasers”). Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 648,000 shares of common stock (the “Shares”) at a purchase price of $2.005 per Share, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $1.3 million. In connection with the purchase of the Shares, each Purchaser will receive a Warrant to purchase up to the number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to 100% of the shares of common stock purchased by the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. The Warrants have an exercise price of $2.005 per share, become exercisable on the date of issuance and expire five years from the date of issuance. The offering closed on May 18, 2016.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company, termination provisions, and other obligations and rights of the parties. In addition, the Company agreed: (i) to provide the Purchasers with a right to participate in an aggregate of up to 50% of any future financing pursued by the Company within six months from the closing of the offering and (ii) until the date that the Company’s Series C preferred stock is no longer outstanding, not to issue any shares of common stock or common stock equivalents at a price per share less than the greater of (i) the exercise price of the warrants issued in connection with the Series C preferred stock and (ii) $2.005. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties.
Pursuant to a letter agreement dated April 8, 2016, as amended on May 16, 2016 (collectively, the “Engagement Letter”), the Company engaged Chardan Capital Markets, LLC (“Chardan”) to act as its exclusive placement agent in connection with the issuance and sale of the Shares and Warrants. Pursuant to the Engagement Letter, the Company has agreed to pay Chardan 9.0% of the aggregate gross cash proceeds of the offering.
The Company estimates that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $1.2 million, after deducting offering expenses and the fees payable to Chardan.
The offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration Statement No. 333-199647) previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a prospectus supplement thereunder.
