Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On August 31, 2007, we entered into an engagement agreement dated August 23, 2007, with ARjENT Limited (“ARjENT”), pursuant to which ARjENT will act as our placement agent to assist us in raising up to two million dollars ($2,000,000) in a bridge financing (the “Bridge Financing”) and up to nine million dollars ($9,000,000) in a follow-on financing (the “Follow-on Offering”) through the issuance of convertible notes and warrants to accredited investors in private placement transactions (the Bridge Financing and Follow-on Offering are collectively referred to as the “Offering”). Upon a closing of the Offering, ARjENT will become our exclusive placement agent until August 30, 2009.
Pursuant to the engagement agreement, we agreed to issue to ARjENT warrants with a seven year term to purchase nine million (9,000,000) shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.10 per share. If ARjENT is successful in raising funds under the Bridge Financing, we agreed to pay ARjENT placement fees comprising (a) a commission equal to ten percent (10%) of the Bridge Financing proceeds and (b) a three percent (3%) non-accountable expense allowance and a two percent (2%) non-accountable due diligence expense allowance. If ARjENT is successful in raising funds under the Follow-on Offering, we agreed to pay ARjENT ten percent (10%) of the proceeds of the Follow-on Offering. In addition, in consideration for ARjENT’s services as exclusive placement agent, we agreed to pay ARjENT a monthly fee of $10,000 per month, which will be payable during the remainder of the term of the engagement agreement after a closing of, in the aggregate, at least three million dollars ($3,000,000) under the Offering. In addition, we will seek to repay ARjENT three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) for advances previously made by ARjENT on our behalf in an amount not to exceed ten percent (10%) of the gross proceeds at any time.
There can be no assurances that ARjENT will be successful in securing additional capital on acceptable terms or that we will complete any of the transactions described above in connection with the proposed Bridge Financing and Offering.
The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the engagement agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
