Summary of All Common Stock Warrants Outstanding
Preferred Stock Warrants
In connection with the issuance of the Series A Convertible Preferred and Series B Convertible Preferred, the Company issued warrants (the “Series A Warrants” and “Series B Warrants”, respectively, and collectively, the “Preferred Warrants”) as compensation to non-employee placement agents. The Series A Warrants and Series B Warrants were issued on April 28, 2017 and May 18, 2019, respectively. The Company determined the Preferred Warrants should be classified as equity as they were issued as vested share-based payment compensation to nonemployees. The Preferred Warrants were recorded in stockholders’ equity at fair value upon issuance with no subsequent remeasurement. As part of the Merger, the Preferred Warrants were converted and settled for a total of shares of the Company’s common stock.
Tabular disclosure of warrants or rights issued. Warrants and rights outstanding are derivative securities that give the holder the right to purchase securities (usually equity) from the issuer at a specific price within a certain time frame. Warrants are often included in a new debt issue to entice investors by a higher return potential. The main difference between warrants and call options is that warrants are issued and guaranteed by the company, whereas options are exchange instruments and are not issued by the company. Also, the lifetime of a warrant is often measured in years, while the lifetime of a typical option is measured in months. Disclose the title of issue of securities called for by warrants and rights outstanding, the aggregate amount of securities called for by warrants and rights outstanding, the date from which the warrants or rights are exercisable, and the price at which the warrant or right is exercisable.
