Under the agreement, contingent upon the completion of a public offering with aggregate gross proceeds of at least $10.5 million, Deerfield would exchange its existing Series A preferred stock for shares of common stock, shares of newly designated Series B preferred stock and warrants to purchase common stock.

The strike price will be at a 10% premium to the public offering price.

The Series B preferred stock includes a 5% cumulative annual dividend with accrual beginning on October 1, 2018 and is payable quarterly in cash beginning December 31, 2018. The Series B preferred stock is mandatorily redeemable according to an amortization schedule beginning July 1, 2020 over a four year period in 48 equal monthly amounts.
