As a result of the reverse stock split, every twenty-five (25) shares of the Common Stock either issued and outstanding or held by the Company in its treasury immediately prior to the effective time was, automatically and without any action on the part of the respective holders thereof, combined and converted into (1) share of the Common Stock. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders who otherwise were entitled to receive a fractional share in connection with the reverse stock split instead were eligible to receive a cash payment, which was not material in the aggregate, instead of shares.

Lincoln Park Stock Purchase Agreement
As discussed above, on August 4, 2023, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement, with Lincoln Park, pursuant to which, under the terms and subject to the satisfaction of specified conditions set forth therein, the Company may sell to Lincoln Park up to $10.0 million (subject to certain limitations) of Common Stock, from time to time during the term of the Purchase Agreement. Additionally, on August 4, 2023, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement, dated as of August 4, 2023 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), with Lincoln Park, pursuant to which it agreed to file a registration statement with the SEC, to register under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), the resale by Lincoln Park of shares of Common Stock that have been or may be issued and sold by us to Lincoln Park under the Purchase Agreement. The Company could not sell any shares of Common Stock to Lincoln Park under the Purchase Agreement unless all of the conditions to Lincoln Park’s purchase obligation set forth in the Purchase Agreement were met, including that the resale registration statement that the Company is required to file with the SEC under the Registration Rights Agreement is declared effective by the SEC and a final prospectus relating thereto is filed with the SEC (the date on which all of such conditions are satisfied, the “Commencement Date”). The registration statement was declared effective on August 11, 2023.
Beginning on the Commencement Date and for a period of up to 24 months thereafter, under the terms and subject to the conditions of the Purchase Agreement, from time to time, at the Company’s discretion, it has the right, but not the obligation, to sell to Lincoln Park, and Lincoln Park is obligated to purchase, up to $10 million of shares of Common Stock, subject to certain limitations set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Specifically, from time to time from and after the Commencement Date, the Company could, at its discretion, on any single business day on which the closing price of the common stock on the NYSE American is equal to or greater than $0.15, by written notice delivered to Lincoln Park, direct Lincoln Park to purchase up to 100,000 shares of Common Stock on such business day, at a purchase price per share that will be determined and fixed in accordance with the Purchase Agreement at the time the Company delivers such written notice to Lincoln Park (each, a “Regular Purchase”); provided, however, that the maximum number of shares we may sell to Lincoln Park in a Regular Purchase may be increased to up to (i) 150,000 shares, if the closing sale price of the Common Stock on the NYSE American on the applicable purchase date is not below $1.00, and (ii) 200,000 shares, if the closing sale price of the Common Stock on the applicable purchase date is not below $2.00; provided, however, that Lincoln Park’s maximum purchase commitment in any single Regular Purchase may not exceed $500,000. The foregoing share amounts and per share prices will be adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction occurring after the date of the Purchase Agreement with respect to the Common Stock. The purchase price per share of Common Stock sold in each such Regular Purchase, if any, will be based on market prices of the Common Stock immediately preceding the time of sale, calculated as set forth in the Purchase Agreement.
In addition, provided that the Company has directed Lincoln Park to purchase the maximum amount of shares that it is then able to sell to Lincoln Park in a Regular Purchase on a particular business day on which the closing price of the common stock on the NYSE American is equal to or greater than $0.20, then in addition to such Regular Purchase, the Company may, in its sole discretion, also direct Lincoln Park to purchase additional shares of Common Stock in an “accelerated purchase,” and one or more “additional accelerated purchases” on the business day immediately following the purchase date for such Regular Purchase, as provided in the Purchase Agreement. The purchase price per share of Common Stock sold to Lincoln Park in each accelerated purchase and additional accelerated purchase, if any, will be based on market prices of the Common Stock at the time of sale on the applicable purchase date for such accelerated purchase and such additional accelerated purchase(s), as applicable, calculated as set forth in the Purchase Agreement. There are no upper limits on the price per share that Lincoln Park must pay for shares of Common Stock in any purchase under the Purchase Agreement.
The Company controls the timing and amount of any sales of Common Stock to Lincoln Park pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Lincoln Park has no right to require the Company to sell any shares of Common Stock to Lincoln Park, but Lincoln Park is obligated to make purchases as the Company directs, subject to certain conditions.
As consideration for Lincoln Park’s commitment to purchase shares of Common Stock at the Company’s direction pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company issued 211,473 shares of Common Stock to Lincoln Park as commitment shares (the “Initial Commitment Shares”) and agreed to issue 211,474 additional shares of Common Stock to Lincoln Park as commitment shares (the “Additional Commitment Shares” and, collectively with the Initial Commitment Shares, the “Commitment Shares”) at such time as the Company has received an aggregate of $5,000,000 in cash proceeds from Lincoln Park from sales of Common Stock to Lincoln Park,
if any, that it elects, in its sole discretion, to make from time to time from and after the Commencement Date, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.
Between August 16, 2023 and September 7, 2023, Lincoln Park purchased pursuant to the Purchase Agreement 3,622,834 shares of Common Stock. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $1.2 million during the first quarter of Fiscal 2024.
