Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Notice of Delisting or Failure to Sa


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 19, 2013, CombiMatrix Corporation (the "Company") and an existing institutional investor (the "Investor") entered into a securities purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement"), pursuant to which the Company will sell an aggregate of up to 130,000 shares (the "Common Shares") of Common Stock (the "Common Stock") at a price of $3.05 per share, an aggregate of up to 1,610.40 shares of Series B 6% Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Series B Preferred Stock") and warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 275,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.49 per share (the "Warrants"). The Series B Preferred Stock and Warrants will be sold in a fixed combination consisting of one share of Series B Preferred Stock and a Warrant to purchase 170.765027 shares of Common Stock. Each fixed combination of Series B Preferred Stock and Warrants will be sold at a price of $1,000. The Series B Preferred Stock to be sold is convertible into an aggregate of 528,000 shares of Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $3.05 per share. The Series B Preferred Stock is not convertible into greater than 19.99% (when aggregated with the Common Shares) of the Company's outstanding Common Stock unless stockholder approval is obtained. The closing under the Purchase Agreement is expected to occur on or prior to March 22, 2013, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

Pursuant to the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series B 6% Convertible Preferred Stock filed by the Company with the Delaware Secretary of State on March 19, 2013 (the "Certificate of Designation"), the Series B Preferred Stock is non-voting (except to the extent required by law and except for certain consent rights relating to amending the certificate of incorporation or bylaws, and the like), but ranks senior to the Common Stock with respect to dividends and with respect to distributions upon a deemed dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the Company. Each share of Series B Preferred Stock carries a 6% per annum dividend that will begin accruing six months after the closing under the Purchase Agreement and will be payable only in cash. Subject to certain exceptions, the conversion price of the Series B Preferred Stock is subject to full ratchet anti-dilution adjustment in the event the Company issues any convertible debt or equity below the then-current conversion price thereof (subject to the limits imposed by General Instruction I.B.6. of Form S-3). In the event the Company commits material and intentional fraud, it may be required to redeem the Series B Preferred Stock in exchange for the issuance of Common Stock valued at 130% of the stated value divided by 75% of the average of the preceding 10 day volume weighted average price of the Common Stock (subject to the limits imposed by General Instruction I.B.6. of Form S-3).

The Warrants being issued in connection with the Series B Preferred Stock will have a 5 year term and will have a cashless exercise provision in the event there is no effective registration statement covering the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Warrants will not be exercisable for the first six months following issuance. The Warrants are not subject to price anti-dilution protection.

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company has also agreed with the Investor that while such Investor holds Series B Preferred Stock or Warrants, the Company will not effect or enter into an agreement to effect a "Variable Rate Transaction," which means a transaction in which the Company:
(i) issues or sells any convertible securities either (A) at a conversion, exercise or exchange rate or other price that is based upon and/or varies with the trading prices of, or quotations for, the shares of the Common Stock at any time after the initial issuance of such convertible securities, or (B) with a conversion, exercise or exchange price that is subject to being reset at some future date after the initial issuance of such convertible securities or upon the occurrence of specified or contingent events directly or indirectly related to the business of the Company; or (ii) enters into any agreement (including, without limitation, an equity line of credit) whereby the Company may sell securities at a future determined price.

The Company has also agreed with the Investor pursuant to the Purchase Agreement that, except under certain permitted circumstances: (i) until the later of the date that is six months from the closing or 30 days following the date on which . . .

On March 18, 2013, the Company received a notice from the Staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market in this regard. In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5605(b)(1)(A), the notice states that Nasdaq will provide the Company a cure period, in order to regain compliance, until the earlier of the Company's next annual stockholders' meeting or March 15, 2014; or if the next annual stockholders' meeting is held before September 11, 2013, then the Company must evidence compliance no later than September 11, 2013.
