CUSIP NO. 74933V108

13D

Page 13 of 20

 

The Issuer effected a one-for-seven reverse stock split of its Common Stock on October 14, 2016, pursuant to which MVP IX’s 40,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock were consolidated into 5,714 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock.

 

On January 4, 2010, MVP IX purchased a second Convertible Promissory Note from the Issuer in the principal amount of $50,000.

 

Conversion of Convertible Promissory Notes, Series A Financing and First Warrant

 

On February 12, 2010, MVP IX entered into a Series A Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which (i) on February 12, 2010, MVP IX acquired a Warrant to purchase 80,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for an exercise price of $0.01 per share, (ii) on February 12, 2010, MVP IX acquired 764,678 shares of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock as a result of the conversion of both Convertible Promissory Notes and all accrued interest thereon, (iii) on February 12, 2010, MVP IX acquired from the Issuer 2,993,414 shares of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock for a purchase price of $0.80176 per share, or $2,399,999.61 in the aggregate, (iv) on February 10, 2012, MVP IX acquired from the Issuer 2,993,412 shares of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock for a purchase price of $0.80176 per share, or $2,399,998.01 in the aggregate, and (v) on March 31, 2014, MVP IX acquired from the Issuer 2,993,412 shares of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock for a purchase price of $0.80176 per share, or $2,399,998.01 in the aggregate.

 

In connection with the closing of the Issuer’s initial public offering of Common Stock (the “Initial Offering”), the 9,744,916 shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by MVP IX automatically converted on a one-for-seven basis into 1,392,130 shares of Common Stock.

 

On February 12, 2015, MVP IX exercised the Warrant to purchase 80,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for an exercise price of $0.01 per share, or $800.00 in the aggregate.

 

The Issuer effected a one-for-seven reverse stock split of its Common Stock on October 14, 2016, pursuant to which MVP IX’s 80,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock issued pursuant to the exercise of such Warrant were consolidated into 11,428 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock.

 

Second Convertible Note Financing and Second Warrant

 

On April 1, 2015, MVP IX purchased (i) a Convertible Promissory Note from the Issuer in the principal amount of $1,414,744.00 and (ii) a Warrant to purchase 441,137 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for an exercise price of $0.01 per share.

 

The Issuer effected a one-for-seven reverse stock split of its Common Stock on October 14, 2016, as a result of which MVP IX’s Warrant to purchase 441,137 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for an exercise price of $0.01 per share was adjusted and became a Warrant to purchase 63,019 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for $0.07 per share.

 

In connection with the closing of the Initial Offering, such Warrant was automatically net exercised. The exercise price of the shares issuable pursuant to the Warrant was $0.07 per share, or $4,411.33 in the aggregate. The exercise price of the shares was paid by having the Issuer withhold 340 shares of Common Stock that were otherwise issuable pursuant to the Warrant, which shares had an aggregate value of $4420.00, based on the offering price of the Issuer’s Common Stock in the Initial Offering of $13.00 per share. Consequently, MVP IX acquired 62,679 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock as a result of the net exercise of the Warrant.
