Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Unregistered Sale of Equity Securiti


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 27, 2013, Giga-tronics Incorporated (the "Company") entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement pursuant to which it agreed to sell 5,111.86 shares of its newly designated Series D Convertible Voting Perpetual Preferred Stock to Alara Capital AVI II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the "Investor"), an investment vehicle sponsored by Active Value Investors, LLC , for aggregate consideration of $858,171. The Company also agreed to issue to the Investor a warrant to purchase up to 511,186 additional shares of common stock of the Company at the price of $1.43 (the "New Warrant") and to amend the Investor's existing warrant to purchase up to 506,219 shares of common stock (the "Existing Warrant") to lower the exercise price to $1.43 per share. Each of Active Value Investors, LLC and the Investor has a business address at Parkview Tower, 1150 First Avenue, Suite 600, King of Prussia, PA 19406. The completion of the sale is subject to customary closing conditions.

Each share of Series D Preferred Stock is initially convertible at the option of the holder into 100 shares of the Company's common stock. The conversion ratio is subject to adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and similar transactions. If all shares of Series D Preferred Stock were immediately converted, holders of such shares would acquire 511,186 shares of common stock of the Company. Each share of Series D Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $143.00. If the Company pays a dividend on its common stock prior to June 1, 2014 or on or after June 1, 2014, it would be required to pay a dividend on the Series D Preferred Stock equal to 110% or 100%, respectively, of the cash dividend that would be payable on the number of shares of common stock into which each share of Series D Preferred Stock is then convertible. The Series D Preferred Stock generally votes together with the common stock, the Series B Convertible Voting Perpetual Preferred Stock and the Series C Convertible Voting Perpetual Preferred Stock on an as-converted to common stock basis on each matter submitted to the vote or approval of the holders of common stock, and would vote as a separate class with respect to certain actions that adversely affect the rights of the Series D Preferred Stock and on other matters as required by law.

The New Warrant will expire 30 months after the date of issuance. As amended, the Existing Warrant will expire on August 7, 2015.

Once the transaction is completed, the Investor will beneficially own approximately 36.2% of the Company's common stock. The Investor currently beneficially owns approximately 26.9% of the Company's common stock.

In accordance with the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company and Investor will enter into an Investor Rights Agreement upon the closing of the sale of the Series D Preferred Stock. In the Investor Rights Agreement, the Company will agree to file certain registration statements for the resale of common stock of the Company that the Investor may acquire upon conversion of the Series D Preferred Stock and the New Warrant.

On January 23, 2013, the Company adopted a shareholder rights plan that permitted the Investor to beneficially owed all shares of the Company's common stock then beneficially owned by it without causing a triggering event under the plan. As contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement, on June 27, 2013, the Company amended its Rights Agreement with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as rights agent, to permit the Investor to beneficially own up to 37% of the Company's common stock, enabling the Investor to acquire the Series D Preferred Stock and New Warrant under the Securities Purchase Agreement, as well as the share of common stock underlying such securities, without triggering the shareholder rights plan.
