Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Results of Operations and Fina


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 14, 2013, Forward Industries, Inc. (the "Company") completed the sale of (i) an additional 50,890 shares of its 6% Senior Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Convertible Preferred Stock") and (ii) warrants to purchase a total of 50,890 shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Common Stock") (the "Warrants" and together with the Convertible Preferred Stock, the "Securities") to an accredited investor (the "Investor") in a private placement (the "Private Placement") pursuant to the terms of a securities purchase agreement, dated August 14, 2013 (the "Purchase Agreement"), by and between the Company and the Investor. The Purchase Agreement was entered into in connection with a closing under the Private Placement (the "Closing") following two previous closings under the Private Placement that occurred on June 28, 2013 and August 7, 2013 (together, the "Previous Closings"), respectively. The Closing resulted in gross proceeds of approximately $100,000 to the Company and, together with the gross proceeds of approximately $1,175,000 from the Previous Closings, amounts to total gross proceeds of approximately $1,275,000 from the Private Placement through the date of the Closing. Together with the Securities sold in the Previous Closings, the Company has sold a total of 648,846 shares of Convertible Preferred Stock and Warrants to purchase 648,846 shares of Common Stock in the Private Placement as of the date of the Closing. The Company may sell additional shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, together with related Warrants, in one or more subsequent closings.

Except for the respective dates thereof, the terms and provisions of the Securities purchased by the Investor in the Closing are identical to the terms and provisions of the Securities purchased by investors in the Previous Closings and the Purchase Agreement is identical to the purchase agreements the Company entered into with investors in the Previous Closings.

The total purchase price paid by the Investor for each share of Convertible Preferred Stock and Warrant purchased in the Closing was $1.965, consisting of
(i) $1.84 in respect of the Convertible Preferred Stock, plus (ii) $0.125 in respect of the Warrant. The Warrants have an initial exercise price of $1.84 per share, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain customary events. The Warrants are exercisable at any time on or after January 1, 2014 (the "Initial Exercise Date") and terminate on the 10-year anniversary of the Initial Exercise Date.

Each share of Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $1.84 per share, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain customary events (the "Conversion Price"). At the initial Conversion Price, the 50,890 shares of Convertible Preferred Stock issued at the Closing are convertible into an aggregate of 54,347 shares of Common Stock, and the total of 648,846 shares of Convertible Preferred Stock issued in the Private Placement as of the date of the Closing are convertible into an aggregate of 692,919 shares of Common Stock.

The terms, rights, obligations and preferences of the Convertible Preferred Stock are set forth in a Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the "Certificate of Amendment") filed with the Department of State of the State of New York and are described in further detail in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on July 3, 2013 (the "Initial Closing 8-K"), which is incorporated by reference herein.


In connection with the sale of the Securities to the Investor in the Closing, the Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with the Investor dated as of August 14, 2013 (the "Registration Rights Agreement"), with the same terms and provisions as the Registration Rights Agreements the Company entered into with investors in the Previous Closings, as described in further detail in the Initial Closing 8-K and Item 5 to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 12, 2013, each of which is incorporated by reference herein.

The issuance of the Securities in the Private Placement was made in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and the provisions of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The Securities and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Preferred Stock and exercise of the Warrants may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an applicable exemption from those registration requirements.

The descriptions of the terms and conditions of the Convertible Preferred Stock, the Warrants, the Purchase Agreements and the Registration Rights Agreement set forth herein do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by: (i) the full text of the Certificate of Amendment, which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to the Initial Closing 8-K and incorporated herein by reference,
(ii) the form of Convertible Preferred Stock Certificate, which is attached as Exhibit 4.1 to the Initial Closing 8-K and incorporated herein by reference,
(iii) the form of Warrant, which is attached as Exhibit 4.2 to the Initial Closing 8-K and incorporated herein by reference; (iv) the form of Purchase Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Initial Closing 8-K and incorporated herein by reference, and (v) the form of Registration Rights Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.2 to the Initial Closing 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
