Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 13, 2016, OpGen, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Sales Agreement (the "Sales Agreement") with Cowen and Company, LLC ("Cowen") pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell from time to time in an "at the market offering", at its option, up to an aggregate of $25 million of shares (the "Placement Shares") of the Company's common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the "Common Stock"), through Cowen, as sales agent, with initial sales to be limited to an aggregate of $11.5 million of Placement Shares (the "ATM Offering"). Pursuant to the Sales Agreement, Cowen may sell the Placement Shares by any method permitted by law deemed to be an "at the market offering" as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including, without limitation, sales made by means of ordinary brokers' transactions on The NASDAQ Capital Market or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, in block transactions, or as otherwise directed by the Company. Cowen will use commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Placement Shares from time to time, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price, time or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose). The Company will pay Cowen a commission equal to three percent (3.0%) of the gross sales proceeds of any Placement Shares sold through Cowen under the Sales Agreement, and has provided Cowen with customary indemnification and contribution rights. The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Common Stock under the Sales Agreement. The offering of Placement Shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all Placement Shares subject to the Sales Agreement, or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement in accordance with its terms.
The foregoing description of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Sales of the Placement shares will be made pursuant to a prospectus supplement to the Company's previously filed and currently effective shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-213356). This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation, or sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
A copy of the opinion of Ballard Spahr LLP, relating to the legality of the shares, is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is filed with reference to, and is hereby incorporated by reference into, the Registration Statement.
