Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On July 21, 2016, Inventergy Global, Inc. (“Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional accredited investors (the “Investors”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company sold to the Investors in a private placement 3,000 shares of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the Series E Preferred Stock”), each having a stated value of $1,000, for aggregate gross proceeds of $3.0 million. The Company intends to use $2.5 million of the net proceeds from the sale of the Series E Preferred Stock to redeem approximately 70% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) and will use the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital.

 

Holders of the Series E Preferred Stock will be entitled to a quarterly dividend at a rate of 5% per annum. The Series E Preferred Stock is immediately convertible into 1,496,262 shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations, at an initial conversion price equal to $2.005 per share, subject to adjustment. After January 25, 2017, the conversion price will be equal to the lesser of (a) the conversion price then in effect or (b) 65% of the volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock for ten consecutive days prior to the applicable conversion date. The Series E Preferred Stock contains provisions providing for an adjustment in the conversion price upon the occurrence of certain events, including stock splits, stock dividends, and fundamental transactions. However, in no event may the conversion price be lower than $0.25 per share. The Company may redeem some or all of the Series E Preferred Stock for cash as follows: (i) on or prior to September 25, 2016, in an amount equal to 126% of the aggregate stated value then outstanding, (ii) after September 25, 2016 and on or prior to January 25, 2017, in an amount equal to 144% of the aggregate stated value then outstanding and (iii) after January 25, 2017, in an amount equal to 150% of the aggregate stated value then outstanding.

 

Each Investor also received a common stock purchase warrant (the “Warrants”) to purchase up to a number of shares of common stock equal to 85% of such Investor’s subscription amount divided by $2.005. The Warrants are exercisable for a term of five years commencing six months after the closing of the transaction at a cash exercise price of $2.005 per share. In the event that the shares underlying the Warrants are not subject to a registration statement at the time of exercise, the Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis after six months from the issuance date. The Warrants also contain provisions providing for an adjustment in the exercise price upon the occurrence of certain events, including stock splits, stock dividends, and fundamental transactions.

 

The Purchase Agreement requires, if necessary, that the Company hold a special meeting of stockholders to seek the approval of the holders of its common stock for the issuance of the number of shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock in excess of 19.99% of the outstanding common stock (the “Shareholder Approval”).  Until the Company obtains the Shareholder Approval, the conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock is limited to 19.99% of the currently outstanding common stock. Additionally, until the Series E Preferred Stock is no longer outstanding, the Investors may participate in future offerings for up to 50% of the amount of such offerings.

 

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and covenants, including covenants relating to public reporting, Shareholder Approval and the use of proceeds.  The Purchase Agreement also provides that, upon redemption of the Series C Preferred Stock, the Investors (each of whom is also a holder of the Series C Preferred Stock) will be entitled to receive an additional premium such that the aggregate redemption amount is 162% of the stated value of the Series C Preferred Stock for the first 60 days after the date of the Purchase Agreement and 180% thereafter.

 

The closing of the transaction is anticipated to occur on or about July 25, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.

 

Chardan Capital Markets, LLC (the “Placement Agent”) is acting as the sole placement agent for the offering. The Placement Agent will receive a commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds of the offering for an aggregate commission of $150,000. The Company will pay for the Investors’ legal expenses in an amount up to $25,000.

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
