Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Change in Directors


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February 21, 2014, we entered into agreements with institutional and accredited investors for the sale of $1.35 million in units (the "Units"), consisting of shares of our common stock and Series A and Series B warrants (collectively, the "Warrants").

Each Unit was priced at $3.00 and comprised of one share of common stock (the "Shares"), a Series A warrant (the "Series A Warrants") and a certain number of Series B warrants (the "Series B Warrants"). Each investor received Series A Warrants to purchase a number of shares of common stock equal to 100% of the number of Shares purchased by such investor. Each investor received Series B Warrants to purchase a certain number of shares of common stock equal to the investor's respective percentage of the total Series B Warrant allotment of 1,400,000 shares, whereby such percentage was determined by the respective percentage of the investor's amount of the total Shares purchased by all investors in this offering; however, we did not issue fractional warrants and therefore, the number of Series B Warrants issued was rounded up or down depending on the total amount invested by each respective investor. The Series A Warrants will have an exercise price per share of $3.00 and expire five years from the date of issuance. The Series B Warrants will not be exercisable for six months following closing, will have an exercise price per share of $3.63 and expire on the later of (a) one year from the earlier of (i) the effective date of an effective registration statement pursuant to which all the Series B Warrant shares are registered for resale and (ii) the date that all Series B Warrant shares may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 (without volume limitations and assuming cashless exercise) and (b) one year anniversary of the closing of the initial public offering of our subsidiary, Ruthigen, Inc. The Series B Warrants will not vest until the closing of Ruthigen's initial public offering. If Ruthigen's initial public offering does not close on or before March 31, 2014, the Series B Warrants shall terminate and be of no further force and effect. The Warrants are subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends or recapitalizations.

We retained Dawson James Securities, Inc. as the exclusive placement agent for this offering, and we paid them $94,630 in placement agent commissions. The Shares and Series A Warrants were offered pursuant to a shelf registration statement (File No. 333-171411), that was declared effective on May 3, 2011 by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Series B Warrants and the shares underlying the Series B Warrants are not registered and are being sold pursuant to an exemption from registration for sales to a limited number of qualified institutional buyers. The offering is expected to close on or about February 26, 2014, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. We anticipate using the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

In addition to the payment of certain cash fees upon closing of the offering, we issued a warrant to Dawson James Securities, Inc. to purchase up to 69,037 shares of common stock. The warrants are exercisable at $3.00 per share and will expire on May 3, 2016. The warrant issued to Dawson James Securities, Inc. has no registration rights, but does contain cashless exercise provisions.

Copies of the Securities Purchase Agreement, the form of Series A Warrant, the form of Series B Warrant, and the warrant to be issued to Dawson James Securities, Inc. in connection with the offering are filed herewith as Exhibits 10.1, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing descriptions of the offering and the documentation related thereto, including the Securities Purchase Agreement, the form of Series A Warrant, the form of Series B Warrant, and the warrant to be issued to Dawson James Securities, Inc., do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such Exhibits.

This report does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, and these securities cannot be sold in any state or jurisdiction in which this offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any state or jurisdiction. Any offer will be made only by means of a prospectus, including a prospectus supplement, forming a part of the effective registration statement.
