Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 24, 2013 Superconductor Technologies Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement ("Purchase Agreement") by and among the Company and certain accredited investors (the "Purchasers"), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue to the Purchasers in a registered offering up to 513,827 shares of its common stock (the "Common Stock") and warrants to purchase up to 513,827 shares of Common Stock (the "Warrants"). These securities sold consisted of one share of Common Stock at a price of $4.25, and two Warrants to purchase Common Stock (describe further below), for an aggregate offering price of $2,183,764.75 (the "Offering"). The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and indemnification by the Company. A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Each Purchaser received two Warrants, each to purchase up to 0.5 of a share of common stock. The Warrants have an initial exercise price of $5.45 per share and will be exercisable one year and one day from their date of issuance. One Warrant will be exercisable for a period of one year following the date that such Warrant is initially exercisable and the other Warrant will be exercisable for a period of five years following the date that such Warrant is initially exercisable. The Warrants are exercisable for cash or, solely in the absence of an effective registration statement or prospectus, by cashless exercise. The exercise price of the Warrants is subject to adjustment in the case of stock dividends or other distributions on shares of common stock or any other equity or equity equivalent securities payable in shares of common stock, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting our common stock, and also, subject to limitations, upon any distribution of assets, including cash, stock or other property to our stockholders. The exercise price of the Warrants is not subject to "price-based" anti-dilution adjustment. The exercise of the Warrants is subject to certain beneficial ownership and other limitations set forth in the Warrants. A copy of the form of the Warrants is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On April 24, 2013, the Company entered into a placement agent agreement (the "Placement Agent Agreement") with Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. (the "Placement Agent"), pursuant to which the Placement Agent agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to arrange for the sale of registered securities of the Company. The Company has agreed to pay the Placement Agent an aggregate fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds received in the Offering and provide a limited non-accountable expense reimbursement. The Placement Agent Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and indemnification by the Company. The Placement Agent Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

The net proceeds to the Company from the registered direct offering, after deducting the Placement Agent fees and the Company's estimated offering expenses, and excluding the proceeds, if any, from the exercise of the Warrants issued in the Offering, was approximately $1.95 million. The Offering closed on April 26, 2013.

The offer and sale of the Common Stock and Warrants are registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), on a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-172190), which became effective on April 13, 2011, and a related prospectus supplement filed in connection with the Offering. A copy of the opinion of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP relating to the legality of the issuance of the shares of Common Stock and the Warrants is attached hereto as Exhibit 5.1.

The foregoing summaries of the terms of the Placement Agent Agreement, the Purchase Agreement and the Warrants are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, such documents filed herewith as Exhibits 1.1, 10.1 and 4.1, respectively, which are incorporated herein by reference.

On April 24, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing the Offering. A copy of the press is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
