Note 9. Stockholders’ Equity


Common Stock


Holders of common stock are entitled to one vote per share, to receive dividends if and when declared, and, upon liquidation or dissolution, are entitled to receive all assets available for distribution to stockholders. The holders have no preemptive or other subscription rights and there are no redemption or sinking fund provisions with respect to such shares. Common stock is subordinate to the preferred stock with respect to dividend rights and rights upon liquidation, winding up and dissolution of the Company.



Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC Agreement


On March 28, 2022, the Company entered into a purchase agreement, or Purchase Agreement, with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“Lincoln Park”), which, subject to the terms and conditions, provides that the Company has the right to sell to Lincoln Park and Lincoln Park is obligated to purchase up to $15.0 million of its common shares. Additionally, on March 28, 2022, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with Lincoln Park, pursuant to which the Company agreed to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), covering the resale of shares of common stock issued to Lincoln Park under the Purchase Agreement. In addition, under the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to issue a commitment fee of 405,953 common shares, or the Commitment Shares, as consideration for Lincoln Park entering into the Purchase Agreement. Under the Purchase Agreement, the Company may from time to time for 30 months following May 9, 2022 (the “Commencement Date”), at its discretion, direct Lincoln Park to purchase on any single business day, or a Regular Purchase, up to (i) 50,000 common shares, (ii) 75,000 common shares if the closing sale price of its common shares is not below $1.50 per share on Nasdaq or (iii) 100,000 common shares if the closing sale price of its common shares is not below $2.50 per share on Nasdaq. In addition to Regular Purchases, the Company may also direct Lincoln Park to purchase other amounts as accelerated purchases or as additional accelerated purchases on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement. In any case, Lincoln Park’s commitment in any single Regular Purchase may not exceed $1.0 million absent a mutual agreement to increase such amount. The purchase price per share for each Regular Purchase will be based on prevailing market prices of the Common Stock immediately preceding the time of sale as computed in accordance with the terms set forth in the Purchase Agreement. There are no upper limits on the price per share that Lincoln Park must pay for shares of Common Stock under the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement may be terminated by the Company at any time after the Commencement Date, at its sole discretion, without any cost or penalty, by giving one business day notice to Lincoln Park to terminate the Purchase Agreement.


For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company incurred $101 thousand of issuance costs related to Lincoln Park and Canaccord Genuity LLC At The Market (“ATM”) (see Note 16. Subsequent Events) arrangements which were recorded as issuance costs in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders’ Equity.
