THE COMPANY

 

We are a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of innovative drug therapies to improve the lives of patients with metabolic and orphan diseases

 

Recent Developments

 

On October 8, 2020, we filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”), which was approved by our stockholders at our special meeting of stockholders held on October 23, 2019 and by our board of directors on October 7, 2020. The Certificate of Amendment effected a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of our Common Stock (the “Reverse Split”), in which every fifty (50) shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of October 9, 2020 were combined and converted into one (1) share of Common Stock. In connection with the Reverse Split, proportionate adjustments were made to increase the per share exercise prices and decrease the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants whereby approximately the same aggregate price is required to be paid for such securities upon exercise as had been payable immediately preceding the Reverse Split. While the Reverse Split decreased the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, it did not change the total number of shares of Common Stock or preferred stock authorized for issuance by us, nor did it change the par value of the Common Stock or preferred stock. The first day of trading after the Reverse Stock Split was on October 13, 2020. Unless otherwise indicated, the share numbers contained herein give effect to the Reverse Split.

 

On October 9, 2020 we issued 2,484,853 shares of Common Stock and 820,001 Unit Warrants which resulted in net proceeds of approximately $37.5 million (referred to herein as the “Unit Financing”). On November 3, 2020, our shares of Common Stock were approved for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol RZLT and the initial day of trading was on November 9, 2020.

 

Our Pipeline

 

Our lead clinical asset, RZ358, is an antibody therapy in Phase 2b development as a potential treatment for congenital hyperinsulinism (“CHI”), an ultra-rare pediatric genetic disorder. In February 2020, we announced the initiation of the RZ358-606 Phase 2b study (“RIZE”) globally at multiple study centers. Prior to COVID-19, we had planned to complete the RIZE study by the middle of calendar year 2021. In March 2020, we paused the RIZE study as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the COVID-19 pandemic abates in different regions, we are resuming clinical activities including trial site initiations. We believe that patient enrollment will recommence by the end of calendar year 2020. Further, if we can begin enrolling patients on this timeframe, we believe we will be able to complete the RIZE study in the second half of calendar year 2021.

 

In addition, in the first half of calendar year 2020, we had positive interactions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). In June 2020, we announced that FDA granted us Rare Pediatric Disease (“RPD”) designation for RZ358, which qualifies us to receive a priority review voucher upon marketing approval of the drug in CHI. Such a voucher could be redeemed to receive a priority review of a subsequent marketing application for any drug candidate in any disease indication. Further, we submitted the RIZE protocol to FDA which allows us to expand the study to clinical sites in the United States. We believe that patient enrollment may commence in the United States in the first quarter of calendar year 2021.

 

Our next program, RZ402, is an oral therapy, targeting diabetic macular edema (“DME”). On October 28, 2020, we submitted an IND to the FDA that will require us to make the first milestone payment of $1.0 million within 15 days after acceptance of the IND by the FDA. The FDA accepted our IND filing on December 1, 2020 and we anticipate initiation of a Phase 1 clinical trial for RZ402 prior to the end of the first quarter of calendar year 2021.

 

RZ358

 

CHI is an ultra-rare pediatric genetic disorder characterized by excessive production of insulin by the pancreas. CHI is caused by mutations in about a dozen known genes associated with pancreatic beta cells and their secretion of insulin. If untreated, it can lead to dangerously low blood sugar levels. Rezolute’s lead candidate, RZ358, is an antibody in Phase 2b development that is designed to prevent severe, persistent low blood sugar in patients with CHI.

 

RZ358 is an intravenously administered human monoclonal antibody that binds to a unique site on the insulin receptor found across effector cells throughout the body in the liver, fat, and muscle. This action allows RZ358 to counteract the effects of elevated insulin in the body. Its unique allosteric mechanism of action is reversible, depends on both insulin levels and blood sugar levels in a dose-dependent manner, and enables patients to achieve normal levels of insulin and glucose. Therefore, we believe that RZ358 is ideally suited as a potential therapy for conditions characterized by excessive insulin production and it is being developed to treat hyperinsulinemia and prevent low blood sugar for diseases such as CHI. As RZ358 acts downstream from the beta cells, across effector cells in the liver, fat, and muscle, it may be universally effective at treating CHI caused by any of the underlying genetic defects.

 

The RIZE study is a multi-center, open-label, repeat-dose Phase 2b study of RZ358 in four sequential dosing cohorts of patients with CHI who are at least two years old and have residual low blood sugar (<70 mg/dL) that is inadequately controlled on existing therapies. In addition to safety and pharmacokinetic evaluations, continuous glucose monitoring (“CGM”) and self-monitored blood glucose will be utilized to evaluate several glycemic efficacy endpoints. The primary endpoint is the time within a glucose target range of 70-180 mg/dL by CGM during weeks 4 and 8 of treatment compared to baseline.

RZ402

 

DME is a severe complication of diabetes marked by progressive vision loss and blindness. Consistently high blood sugar levels can cause diabetic retinopathy, a complication characterized by damage to the blood vessels in the eye and fluid leakage into the light-sensitive tissue known as the retina. The accumulation of fluid may lead to DME, or swelling of the macula, the part of the retina responsible for sharp, straight-ahead vision. Currently available treatments for DME involve frequent burdensome injections into the eye or invasive laser surgery.

 

Rezolute is developing RZ402, a small molecule plasma kallikrein inhibitor (“PKI”) for use in DME. As a once-daily oral investigational therapy, RZ402 is designed to improve compliance and treatment outcomes for patients with DME. Elevated plasma levels of the enzyme kallikrein have been associated with increased inflammation, vessel leakage and excess blood vessel growth in the eyes of patients with DME. Genetic and pharmacologic knockout of plasma kallikrein have been shown to protect against vascular endothelial growth factor (“VEGF”) induced retinal blood vessel leakage in murine models without damaging long-term effects.

 

RZ402 is a bioavailable small molecule inhibitor of plasma kallikrein that has shown the potential to prevent the onset of and reverse vascular leakage in a dose-dependent manner in multiple rodent models of whole body and retinal vascular leakage. Target plasma concentrations were exceeded for 24 hours following oral dosing of RZ402 in monkeys and dogs, supporting the potential for once daily dosing in humans. Rezolute has completed a pre-IND meeting with the FDA and the IND-enabling toxicology studies in preparation for filing an IND.

 

Competition

 

We face competition from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, academic institutions, governmental agencies, and private research organizations in recruiting and retaining highly qualified scientific personnel and consultants and in the development and acquisition of technologies.

 

There are a handful of companies developing therapies for CHI that are potential competitors to RZ358. Zealand Pharma is one such company.

 

There are a handful of companies developing oral therapies for diabetic macular edema that are potential competitors to the plasma kallikrein inhibitor therapy, KalVista Pharmaceuticals being one such company.

 

Government Regulation

 

Regulation by governmental authorities in the U.S. and other countries is a significant factor in the development, manufacture and marketing of pharmaceutical products. All of our potential products will require regulatory approval by governmental agencies prior to commercialization. In particular, pharmaceutical therapies are subject to rigorous preclinical testing and clinical trials and other pre-market approval requirements by the FDA and regulatory authorities in foreign countries. Various federal, state and foreign statutes and regulations also govern or influence the manufacturing, safety, labeling, storage, record keeping and marketing of such products.

 

We are also subject to various federal, state, and local laws, regulations and recommendations relating to safe working conditions; laboratory and manufacturing practices; the experimental use of animals; and the use and disposal of hazardous or potentially hazardous substances, including radioactive compounds and infectious disease agents, used in connection with our research, development and manufacturing.

 

Employees

 

As of December 14, 2020, we had 21 full-time employees, all of whom have experience with pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical product companies. None of our employees or contractors are covered by collective bargaining agreements.

RISK FACTORS

 

Investing in shares of our Common Stock involves significant risks. Please see the risk factor below and the additional risk factors set forth under the heading “Risk Factors” in Item 1A. of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, and in Part II, Item 1A. of our most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020, each of which are on file with the SEC and are incorporated by reference in this prospectus. These risks may be revised or supplemented in future filings of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Reports on Form 10-K, which are also incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider these risks as well as other information we include or incorporate by reference in this prospectus.

 

Risks Related to Our Governing Documents

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware is the exclusive forum for certain litigation that may be initiated by our stockholders, including claims under the Securities Act, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers or employees.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf, (ii) any action asserting a claim for breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers, employees or agents to us or our stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our certificate of incorporation or our bylaws or (iv) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. The choice of forum provision may limit a stockholder’s ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum that it finds favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers, employees or agents, which may discourage such lawsuits against us and our directors, officers, employees and agents. Stockholders who do bring a claim in the Court of Chancery could face additional litigation costs in pursuing any such claim, particularly if they do not reside in or near the State of Delaware. The Court of Chancery may also reach different judgments or results than would other courts, including courts where a stockholder considering an action may be located or would otherwise choose to bring the action, and such judgments or results may be more favorable to us than to our stockholders. Alternatively, if a court were to find the choice of forum provision contained in our certificate of incorporation to be inapplicable or unenforceable in an action, we may incur additional costs associated with resolving such action in other jurisdictions, which could adversely affect our business and financial condition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the exclusive provision shall not preclude or contract the scope of exclusive federal or concurrent jurisdiction for actions brought under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the respective rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

DESCRIPTION OF DEBT SECURITIES

 

This section describes the general terms and provisions of the debt securities that we may offer using this prospectus and the related indenture. This section is only a summary and does not purport to be complete. You must look to a future prospectus supplement that will describe the relevant form of debt security and the related indenture for a full understanding of all terms of any series of debt securities. The form of debt security and the related indenture have been or will be filed or incorporated by reference as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. See “Where You Can Find More Information” for information on how to obtain copies.

 

We may issue debt securities from time to time, in one or more series, as either senior or subordinated debt or as senior or subordinated convertible debt. While the terms we have summarized below will apply generally to any debt securities that we may offer under this prospectus, we will describe the particular terms of any debt securities that we may offer in more detail in the applicable prospectus supplement. The terms of any debt securities offered under a prospectus supplement may differ from the terms described below. Unless otherwise mentioned or unless the context requires otherwise, whenever we refer to the indenture, we also are referring to any supplemental indentures that specify the terms of a particular series of debt securities.

 

We will issue the debt securities under the indenture that we will enter into with the trustee named in the indenture. The indenture will be qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended, or the Trust Indenture Act. We have filed the form of indenture as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, and supplemental indentures and forms of debt securities containing the terms of the debt securities being offered will be filed as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part or will be incorporated by reference from reports that we file with the SEC.

 

The following summary of material provisions of the debt securities and the indenture is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, all of the provisions of the indenture applicable to a particular series of debt securities. We urge you to read the applicable prospectus supplements and any related free writing prospectuses related to the debt securities that we may offer under this prospectus, as well as the complete indenture that contains the terms of the debt securities.

 

General

 

The indenture will not limit the amount of debt securities that we may issue. It will provide that we may issue debt securities up to the principal amount that we may authorize and may be in any currency or currency unit that we may designate. Except for the limitations on consolidation, merger and sale of all or substantially all of our assets that may be contained in the indenture, the terms of the indenture will not contain any covenants or other provisions designed to give holders of any debt securities protection against changes in our operations, financial condition or transactions involving us.

 

We may issue the debt securities issued under the indenture as “discount securities,” which means they may be sold at a discount below their stated principal amount. These debt securities, as well as other debt securities that are not issued at a discount, may be issued with “original issue discount,” or OID, for U.S. federal income tax purposes because of interest payment and other characteristics or terms of the debt securities. Material U.S. federal income tax considerations applicable to debt securities issued with OID will be described in more detail in the applicable prospectus supplement.

·the denominations in which we will issue the series of debt securities, if other than denominations of $1,000 and any integral multiple thereof;

·additions to or changes in the covenants applicable to the particular debt securities being issued, including, among others, the consolidation, merger or sale covenant;

 

·additions to or changes in the events of default with respect to the securities and any change in the right of the trustee or the holders to declare the principal, premium, if any, and interest, if any, with respect to such securities to be due and payable;

 

·additions to or changes in or deletions of the provisions relating to covenant defeasance and legal defeasance;

Conversion or Exchange Rights

 

We will set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement the terms on which a series of debt securities may be convertible into or exchangeable for our Common Stock or our other securities. We will include provisions as to settlement upon conversion or exchange and whether conversion or exchange is mandatory, at the option of the holder or at our option. We may include provisions pursuant to which the number of shares of our Common Stock or our other securities that the holders of the series of debt securities receive would be subject to adjustment.

 

Consolidation, Merger or Sale

 

Unless we provide otherwise in the prospectus supplement applicable to a particular series of debt securities, the indenture will not contain any covenant that restricts our ability to merge or consolidate, or sell, convey, transfer or otherwise dispose of our assets as an entirety or substantially as an entirety. However, any successor to or acquirer of such assets (other than a subsidiary of ours) must assume all of our obligations under the indenture or the debt securities, as appropriate.

Events of Default under the Indenture

 

Unless we provide otherwise in the prospectus supplement applicable to a particular series of debt securities, the following are events of default under the indenture with respect to any series of debt securities that we may issue:

 

·if we fail to pay any installment of interest on any series of debt securities, as and when the same shall become due and payable, and such default continues for a period of 90 days; provided, however, that a valid extension of an interest payment period by us in accordance with the terms of any indenture supplemental thereto shall not constitute a default in the payment of interest for this purpose;

 

·if we fail to pay the principal of, or premium, if any, on any series of debt securities as and when the same shall become due and payable whether at maturity, upon redemption, by declaration or otherwise, or in any payment required by any sinking or analogous fund established with respect to such series; provided, however, that a valid extension of the maturity of such debt securities in accordance with the terms of any indenture supplemental thereto shall not constitute a default in the payment of principal or premium, if any;

 

·if we fail to observe or perform any other covenant or agreement contained in the debt securities or the indenture, other than a covenant specifically relating to another series of debt securities, and our failure continues for 90 days after we receive written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied and stating that such is a notice of default thereunder, from the trustee or holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of the applicable series; and

 

·if specified events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization occur.

 

If an event of default with respect to debt securities of any series occurs and is continuing, other than an event of default specified in the last bullet point above, the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of that series, by notice to us in writing, and to the trustee if notice is given by such holders, may declare the unpaid principal of, premium, if any, and accrued interest, if any, of such series of debt securities due and payable immediately. If an event of default specified in the last bullet point above occurs with respect to us, the principal amount of and accrued interest, if any, of each issue of debt securities then outstanding shall be due and payable without any notice or other action on the part of the trustee or any holder.

 

The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of an affected series may waive any default or event of default with respect to the series and its consequences, except defaults or events of default regarding payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest, unless we have cured the default or event of default in accordance with the indenture. Any waiver shall cure the default or event of default.

 

Subject to the terms of the indenture, if an event of default under an indenture shall occur and be continuing, the trustee will be under no obligation to exercise any of its rights or powers under such indenture at the request or direction of any of the holders of the applicable series of debt securities, unless such holders have offered the trustee reasonable indemnity. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of any series will have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the trustee, or exercising any trust or power conferred on the trustee, with respect to the debt securities of that series, provided that:

 

·the direction so given by the holder is not in conflict with any law or the applicable indenture; and

 

·subject to its duties under the Trust Indenture Act, the trustee need not take any action that might involve it in personal liability or might be unduly prejudicial to the holders not involved in the proceeding.

 

A holder of the debt securities of any series will have the right to institute a proceeding under the indenture or to appoint a receiver or trustee, or to seek other remedies only if:

 

·the holder has given written notice to the trustee of a continuing event of default with respect to that series;

 

·the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of that series have made written request;

 

·such holders have offered to the trustee indemnity satisfactory to it against the costs, expenses and liabilities to be incurred by the trustee in compliance with the request; and

 

·the trustee does not institute the proceeding, and does not receive from the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of that series other conflicting directions within 90 days after the notice, request and offer.

 

These limitations do not apply to a suit instituted by a holder of debt securities if we default in the payment of the principal, premium, if any, or interest on, the debt securities.

 

We will periodically file statements with the trustee regarding our compliance with specified covenants in the indenture.

Modification of Indenture; Waiver

 

Unless we provide otherwise in the prospectus supplement applicable to a particular series of debt securities, we and the trustee may change an indenture without the consent of any holders with respect to specific matters:

 

·to cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency in the indenture or in the debt securities of any series;

 

·to comply with the provisions described above under “Description of Debt Securities—Consolidation, Merger or Sale;

 

·to provide for uncertificated debt securities in addition to or in place of certificated debt securities;

 

·to add to our covenants, restrictions, conditions or provisions such new covenants, restrictions, conditions or provisions for the benefit of the holders of all or any series of debt securities, to make the occurrence, or the occurrence and the continuance, of a default in any such additional covenants, restrictions, conditions or provisions an event of default or to surrender any right or power conferred upon us in the indenture;

 

·to add to, delete from or revise the conditions, limitations, and restrictions on the authorized amount, terms, or purposes of issue, authentication and delivery of debt securities, as set forth in the indenture;

 

·to make any change that does not adversely affect the interests of any holder of debt securities of any series in any material respect;

 

·to provide for the issuance of and establish the form and terms and conditions of the debt securities of any series as provided above under “Description of Debt Securities—General” to establish the form of any certifications required to be furnished pursuant to the terms of the indenture or any series of debt securities, or to add to the rights of the holders of any series of debt securities;

 

·to evidence and provide for the acceptance of appointment under any indenture by a successor trustee; or

 

·to comply with any requirements of the SEC in connection with the qualification of any indenture under the Trust Indenture Act.

 

In addition, under the indenture, the rights of holders of a series of debt securities may be changed by us and the trustee with the written consent of the holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of each series that is affected. However, unless we provide otherwise in the prospectus supplement applicable to a particular series of debt securities, we and the trustee may make the following changes only with the consent of each holder of any outstanding debt securities affected:

 

·extending the fixed maturity of any debt securities of any series;

 

·reducing the principal amount, reducing the rate of or extending the time of payment of interest, or reducing any premium payable upon the redemption of any series of any debt securities; or

 

·reducing the percentage of debt securities, the holders of which are required to consent to any amendment, supplement, modification or waiver.

 

Discharge

 

The indenture will provide that we can elect to be discharged from our obligations with respect to one or more series of debt securities, except for specified obligations, including obligations to:

 

·provide for payment;

 

·register the transfer or exchange of debt securities of the series;

 

·replace stolen, lost or mutilated debt securities of the series;

 

·pay principal of and premium and interest on any debt securities of the series;

 

·maintain paying agencies;

 

·hold monies for payment in trust;

 

·recover excess money held by the trustee;

 

·compensate and indemnify the trustee; and

 

·appoint any successor trustee.

 

In order to exercise our rights to be discharged, we must deposit with the trustee money or government obligations sufficient to pay all the principal of, any premium, and interest on, the debt securities of the series on the dates payments are due.

 

We will issue the debt securities of each series only in fully registered form without coupons and, unless we provide otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, in denominations of $1,000 and any integral multiple thereof. The indenture will provide that we may issue debt securities of a series in temporary or permanent global form and as book-entry securities that will be deposited with, or on behalf of, The Depository Trust Company, or DTC, or another depositary named by us and identified in the applicable prospectus supplement with respect to that series. To the extent the debt securities of a series are issued in global form and as book-entry, a description of terms relating to any book-entry securities will be set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement.

 

11

 

 

At the option of the holder, subject to the terms of the indenture and the limitations applicable to global securities described in the applicable prospectus supplement, the holder of the debt securities of any series will be able to exchange the debt securities for other debt securities of the same series, in any authorized denomination and of like tenor and aggregate principal amount.

 

Subject to the terms of the indenture and the limitations applicable to global securities set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement, holders of the debt securities may present the debt securities for exchange or for registration of transfer, duly endorsed or with the form of transfer endorsed thereon duly executed if so required by us or the security registrar, at the office of the security registrar or at the office of any transfer agent designated by us for this purpose. Unless otherwise provided in the debt securities that the holder presents for transfer or exchange, we will impose no service charge for any registration of transfer or exchange, but we may require payment of any taxes or other governmental charges.

 

We will name in the applicable prospectus supplement the security registrar, and any transfer agent in addition to the security registrar, that we initially designate for any debt securities. We may at any time designate additional transfer agents or rescind the designation of any transfer agent or approve a change in the office through which any transfer agent acts, except that we will be required to maintain a transfer agent in each place of payment for the debt securities of each series.

 

If we elect to redeem the debt securities of any series, we will not be required to:

 

·issue, register the transfer of, or exchange any debt securities of that series during a period beginning at the opening of business 15 days before the day of mailing of a notice of redemption of any debt securities that may be selected for redemption and ending at the close of business on the day of the mailing; or

 

·register the transfer of or exchange of any debt securities so selected for redemption, in whole or in part, except the unredeemed portion of any debt securities we are redeeming in part.

 

Information Concerning the Trustee

 

The trustee, other than during the occurrence and continuance of an event of default under an indenture, will undertake to perform only those duties as are specifically set forth in the applicable indenture. Upon an event of default under an indenture, the trustee must use the same degree of care as a prudent person would exercise or use in the conduct of his or her own affairs. Subject to this provision, the trustee is under no obligation to exercise any of the powers given it by the indenture at the request of any holder of debt securities unless it is offered reasonable security and indemnity against the costs, expenses and liabilities that it might incur.

 

Payment and Paying Agents

 

Unless we otherwise indicate in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will make payment of the interest on any debt securities on any interest payment date to the person in whose name the debt securities, or one or more predecessor securities, are registered at the close of business on the regular record date for the interest.

 

We will pay principal of and any premium and interest on the debt securities of a particular series at the office of the paying agents designated by us, except that unless we otherwise indicate in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will make interest payments by check that we will mail to the holder or by wire transfer to certain holders. Unless we otherwise indicate in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will designate the corporate trust office of the trustee as our sole paying agent for payments with respect to debt securities of each series. We will name in the applicable prospectus supplement any other paying agents that we initially designate for the debt securities of a particular series. We will maintain a paying agent in each place of payment for the debt securities of a particular series.

 

All money we pay to a paying agent or the trustee for the payment of the principal of or any premium or interest on any debt securities that remains unclaimed at the end of two years after such principal, premium or interest has become due and payable will be repaid to us, and the holder of the debt security thereafter may look only to us for payment thereof.

 

Governing Law

 

The indenture and the debt securities, and any claim, controversy or dispute arising under or related to the indenture or the debt securities, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, except to the extent that the Trust Indenture Act is applicable.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

General

 

This prospectus describes the general terms of our capital stock. For a more detailed description of our capital stock, you should read the applicable provisions of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or DGCL, and our charter and bylaws.

 

Common Stock

 

Our certificate of incorporation provides authority for us to issue up to 500,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share. As of December 14, 2020, there were 8,352,277 shares of our Common Stock outstanding. Under Delaware law, stockholders generally are not personally liable for our debts or obligations solely as a result of their status as stockholders. Our outstanding shares of Common Stock are, and any shares offered by this prospectus will be, when issued and paid for, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

Holders of our Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters submitted to our stockholders for a vote. There are no cumulative voting rights in the election of directors. Our shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive such dividends as may be declared and paid by our Board of Directors out of funds legally available therefor and to share ratably in the net assets, if any, of Rezolute upon liquidation. Our stockholders have no preemptive rights to purchase any shares of our capital stock. Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall be the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf, (ii) any action asserting a claim for breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers, employees or agents to us or our stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our certificate of incorporation or our bylaws or (iv) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. Notwithstanding this exclusive forum provision, the exclusive forum provision shall not preclude or contract the scope of exclusive federal or concurrent jurisdiction for actions brought under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the respective rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

Preferred Stock

 

Our certificate of incorporation provides authority for us to issue up to 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share. Our Board of Directors is authorized, without further stockholder action, to establish various series of preferred stock from time to time and to determine the rights, preferences and privileges of any unissued series including, among other matters, any dividend rights, dividend rates, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences, sinking fund terms, the number of shares constituting any such series, and the description thereof and to issue any such shares. As of December 14, 2020, there are no issued and outstanding shares of preferred stock and our Board of Directors has not designated any series of preferred stock for future issuance.

 

The rights of the holders of our Common Stock will be subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of holders of any preferred stock that may be issued in the future. Such rights may include voting and conversion rights which could adversely affect the holders of the Common Stock. Satisfaction of any dividend or liquidation preferences of outstanding preferred stock would reduce the amount of funds available, if any, for the payment of dividends or liquidation amounts on Common Stock.

 

A prospectus supplement, relating to any offered class or series of preferred stock, will specify the following terms of such class or series, as applicable:

 

·the designation of such class or series of our $0.001 par value preferred stock;

 

·the number of shares of such class or series of preferred stock offered, the liquidation preference per share and the offering price of such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·the dividend rate(s), period(s), and/or payment date(s) or method(s) of calculation thereof applicable to such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·whether dividends on such class or series of preferred stock are cumulative or not and, if cumulative, the date from which dividends on such class or series of preferred stock shall accumulate;

 

·the provision for a sinking fund, if any, for such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·the provision for redemption, if applicable, of such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·any listing of such class or series of preferred stock on any securities exchange;

 

·the preemptive rights, if any, of such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·the terms and conditions, if applicable, upon which shares such class or series of preferred stock will be convertible into shares of our Common Stock or shares of any other class or series of our stock or other securities, including the conversion price (or manner of calculation thereof);

 

13

 

 

·a discussion of any additional material federal income tax consequences applicable to an investment in such class or series of preferred stock;

 

·the relative ranking and preferences of such class or series of preferred stock as to dividend rights and rights upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of our Company;

 

·any limitations on issuance of any class or series of stock ranking senior to or on parity with such class or series of preferred stock as to dividend rights and rights upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of our Company;

 

·any voting rights of such class or series of preferred stock; and

 

·any other specific terms, preferences, rights, limitations or restrictions of such class or series of preferred stock.

DESCRIPTION OF OTHER SECURITIES

 

Warrants

 

We may issue warrants to purchase certain of the securities described in this prospectus. Unless otherwise provided in the applicable prospectus supplement, each series of warrants will be issued under a separate warrant agreement to be entered into between us and a warrant agent. Additional information regarding any warrants we may offer, and the related warrant agreement will be set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement.

 

As of December 14, 2020, we had certain warrants issued in our October 9, 2020 Unit Financing (the “Unit Warrants”) to purchase 820,001 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $19.50 per share that were outstanding. In addition, as of December 14, 2020, other warrants to purchase an aggregate of 618,307 shares at a weighted-average exercise price of $57.46 per share were outstanding. All of our outstanding warrants are currently exercisable, except to the extent that certain of the Unit Warrants are subject to a blocker provision, which restricts the exercise of a warrant if, as a result of such exercise, the warrant holder, together with its affiliates and any other person whose beneficial ownership of Common Stock would be aggregated with the warrant holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, would beneficially own in excess of 4.99%, 9.99%, or 14.99% of our then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (including the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise), as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of such warrant. All of our outstanding warrants contain provisions for the adjustment of the exercise price in the event of stock dividends, stock splits or similar transactions. In addition, the Unit Warrants contain a “cashless exercise” feature that allows the holders thereof to exercise the warrants without a cash payment to us under certain circumstances.

 

Rights

 

We may issue rights to purchase our Common Stock, preferred stock, or other securities. Rights may be issued independently or together with any other offered security and may or may not be transferable by the person purchasing or receiving the subscription rights. In connection with any rights offering to our stockholders, we may enter into a standby underwriting arrangement with one or more underwriters pursuant to which the underwriters will purchase any of the offered securities remaining unsubscribed after the expiration of the rights offering. In connection with a rights offering to our shareholders, we will distribute certificates evidencing the rights and an applicable prospectus supplement to our shareholders on the record date that we set for receiving rights in the rights offering.

 

The particular terms and provisions of the rights offered by any prospectus supplement, and the extent to which the general terms and provisions described below may apply thereto, will be described in the prospectus supplement filed in respect of such rights. This description will include, where applicable:

 

the title of the rights;

 

the securities for which the rights are exercisable;

 

the exercise price for the rights;

 

the date of determining the security holders entitled to the rights distribution;

 

the number of the rights issued to each security holder;

 

the extent to which the rights are transferable;

 

if applicable, a discussion of the material United States federal income tax considerations applicable to the issuance or exercise of the rights;

 

the date on which the right to exercise the rights shall commence, and the date on which the rights shall expire (subject to any extension);

 

the conditions to completion of the rights offering;

 

any provisions for changes to or adjustments in the exercise price or number of securities issuable upon exercise of the rights;

 

the extent to which the rights include an over-subscription privilege with respect to unsubscribed securities;

 

if applicable, the material terms of any standby underwriting or other purchase arrangement that we may enter into in connection with the rights offering; and

 

any other terms of the rights, including terms, procedures and limitations relating to the exchange and exercise of the right.

Units

 

We may issue units comprised of one or more of the securities described in this prospectus in any combination. Each unit will be issued so that the holder of the unit is also the holder of each security included in the unit. Thus, the holder of a unit will have the rights and obligations of a holder of each included security. The unit agreement, if any, under which a unit is issued may provide that the securities comprising the unit may not be held or transferred separately, at any time or at any time before a specified date.

 

The particular terms and provisions of units offered by any prospectus supplement, and the extent to which the general terms and provisions described below may apply thereto, will be described in the prospectus supplement filed in respect of such units. This description will include, where applicable:

 

the designation and aggregate number of units offered;

 

the price at which the units will be offered;

 

the currency or currencies in which the units are denominated;

 

the terms of the units and of the securities comprising the units, including whether and under what circumstances those securities may be held or transferred separately;

 

the number of securities that may be purchased upon exercise of each unit and the price at which the currency or currencies in which that amount of securities may be purchased upon exercise of each unit;

 

any provisions for the issuance, payment, settlement, transfer, adjustment or exchange of the units or of the securities comprising the units; and

 

any other material terms of the units.

 

We reserve the right to set forth in a prospectus supplement specific terms of the units that are not within the options and parameters set forth in this prospectus. In addition, to the extent that any particular terms of the units described in a prospectus supplement differ from any of the terms described in this prospectus, the description of such terms set forth in this prospectus shall be deemed to have been superseded by the description of the differing terms set forth in such prospectus supplement with respect to such units.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We may sell the securities from time to time pursuant to underwritten public offerings, direct sales to the public, negotiated transactions, block trades or a combination of these methods. We may sell the securities to or through underwriters or dealers, through agents, directly to one or more purchasers, or through any combination of these methods. The distribution of the securities may be effected from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.

 

We may issue securities to other companies or their security holders to acquire those companies or equity interests in those companies, or to acquire assets of those companies, through mergers or consolidations with us or any of our subsidiaries, or through the exchange of our securities for securities of the other companies, or through the exchange of assets of other companies for our securities, or through similar transactions. We may also issue securities to third parties to acquire patents or other intellectual property or licenses or similar rights to use patents or other intellectual property.

 

A prospectus supplement or supplements (and any related free writing prospectus that we may authorize to be provided to you) will describe the terms of the offering of the securities, including, to the extent applicable:

 

  the name or names of any underwriters or dealers, if any;
     
  the purchase price of the securities and the proceeds we will receive from the sale;
     
  any over-allotment options under which underwriters may purchase additional securities from us;
     
  any agency fees or underwriting discounts and other items constituting agents’ or underwriters’ compensation;
     
  any public offering price;
     
  any discounts or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid to dealers; and
     
  any securities exchange or market on which the securities may be listed.

 

Only underwriters named in the prospectus supplement are underwriters of the securities offered by the prospectus supplement.

 

By Underwriters

 

If underwriters are used in the sale, they will acquire the securities for their own account and may resell the securities from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase the securities will be subject to the conditions set forth in the applicable underwriting agreement. We may offer the securities to the public through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters or by underwriters without a syndicate. Subject to certain conditions, the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all of the securities offered by the prospectus supplement. Any public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or reallowed may change from time to time. We may use underwriters with whom we have a material relationship. We will describe in the prospectus supplement, naming the underwriter, the nature of any such relationship.

 

By Dealers

 

If a dealer is utilized in the sale of any securities offered by this prospectus, we will sell those securities to the dealer, as principal. The dealer may then resell the securities to the public at varying prices to be determined by the dealer at the time of resale. We will set forth the names of the dealers and the terms of the transaction in the applicable prospectus supplement.

 

By Agents

 

We may sell securities directly or through agents we designate from time to time. We will name any agent involved in the offering and sale of securities and we will describe any commissions we will pay the agent in the prospectus supplement. Unless the prospectus supplement states otherwise, our agent will act on a best-efforts basis for the period of its appointment.

 

By Direct Sales

 

We may also directly sell securities offered by this prospectus. In this case, no underwriters or agents would be involved. We will describe the terms of those sales in the applicable prospectus supplement.

 

17

 

 

Electronic Auctions

 

We also may make sales through the Internet or through other electronic means. Since we may from time to time elect to offer securities directly to the public, with or without the involvement of agents, underwriters or dealers, utilizing the Internet or other forms of electronic bidding or ordering systems for the pricing and allocation of the securities, you will want to pay particular attention to the description of that system we will provide in an applicable prospectus supplement.

 

The electronic system may allow bidders to directly participate, through electronic access to an auction site, by submitting conditional offers to buy that are subject to acceptance by us, and which may directly affect the price or other terms and conditions at which the securities are sold. These bidding or ordering systems may present to each bidder, on a so-called “real-time” basis, relevant information to assist in making a bid, such as the clearing spread at which the offering would be sold, based on the bids submitted, and whether a bidder’s individual bids would be accepted, prorated or rejected. Of course, many pricing methods can and may also be used.

 

Upon completion of the electronic auction process, securities will be allocated based on prices bid, terms of bid or other factors. The final offering price at which securities would be sold and the allocation of securities among bidders would be based in whole or in part on the results of the Internet or other electronic bidding process or auction.

 

General Information

 

Underwriters, dealers and agents that participate in the distribution of the securities offered by this prospectus may be deemed underwriters under the Securities Act, and any discounts or commissions they receive from us and any profit on their resale of the securities may be treated as underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act.

 

We may authorize agents, dealers or underwriters to solicit offers by certain types of institutional investors to purchase securities from us at the public offering price set forth in the prospectus supplement pursuant to delayed delivery contracts providing for payment and delivery on a specified date in the future. We will describe the conditions to these contracts and the commissions we must pay for solicitation of these contracts in the prospectus supplement.

 

We may provide agents and underwriters with indemnification against civil liabilities related to this offering, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or contribution with respect to payments that the agents or underwriters may make with respect to these liabilities. Agents and underwriters may engage in transactions with, or perform services for, us in the ordinary course of business.

 

Some or all of the securities we offer, other than shares of Common Stock, will be new issues of securities with no established trading market. Any underwriters may make a market in these securities, but will not be obligated to do so and may discontinue any market making at any time without notice. We cannot guarantee the liquidity of the trading markets for any securities.

 

We may engage in at-the-market offerings into an existing trading market in accordance with Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act. We may enter into derivative transactions with third parties, or sell securities not covered by this prospectus to third parties in privately negotiated transactions. If the applicable prospectus supplement indicates, in connection with those derivatives, the third parties may sell securities covered by this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement, including in short sale transactions. If so, the third parties may use securities pledged by us or borrowed from us or others to settle those sales or to close out any related open borrowings of shares, and may use securities received from us in settlement of those derivatives to close out any related open borrowings of shares. The third parties in such sale transactions will be identified in the applicable prospectus supplement.

 

One or more firms, referred to as “remarketing firms,” may also offer or sell the securities, if the prospectus supplement so indicates, in connection with a remarketing arrangement upon their purchase. Remarketing firms will act as principals for their own accounts or as agents for us. These remarketing firms will offer or sell the securities in accordance with the terms of the securities. The prospectus supplement will identify any remarketing firm and the terms of its agreement, if any, with us and will describe the remarketing firm’s compensation. Remarketing firms may be deemed to be underwriters in connection with the securities they remarket.

 

Any underwriter may engage in overallotment, stabilizing transactions, short covering transactions and penalty bids in accordance with Regulation M under the Exchange Act. Overallotment involves sales in excess of the offering size, which create a short position. This short sales position may involve either “covered” short sales or “naked” short sales. Covered short sales are short sales made in an amount not greater than the underwriters’ over-allotment option to purchase additional securities in this offering described above. The underwriters may close out any covered short position either by exercising their over-allotment option or by purchasing securities in the open market. To determine how they will close the covered short position, the underwriters will consider, among other things, the price of securities available for purchase in the open market, as compared to the price at which they may purchase securities through the over-allotment option. Naked short sales are short sales in excess of the over-allotment option. The underwriters must close out any naked short position by purchasing securities in the open market. A naked short position is more likely to be created if the underwriters are concerned that, in the open market after pricing, there may be downward pressure on the price of the securities that could adversely affect investors who purchase securities in this offering. Stabilizing transactions permit bids to purchase the underlying security for the purpose of fixing the price of the security so long as the stabilizing bids do not exceed a specified maximum. Penalty bids permit the underwriters to reclaim a selling concession from a dealer when the securities originally sold by the dealer are purchased in a covering transaction to cover short positions.

 

18

 

 

Any underwriters who are qualified market makers on The Nasdaq Capital Market may engage in passive market making transactions in our Common Stock, preferred stock, warrants, units and debt securities, as applicable, on The Nasdaq Capital Market in accordance with Rule 103 of Regulation M, during the business day prior to the pricing of the offering, before the commencement of offers or sales of the securities. Passive market makers must comply with applicable volume and price limitations and must be identified as passive market makers. In general, a passive market maker must display its bid at a price not in excess of the highest independent bid for such security; if all independent bids are lowered below the passive market maker’s bid, however, the passive market maker’s bid must then be lowered when certain purchase limits are exceeded.

 

Similar to other purchase transactions, an underwriter’s purchase to cover the syndicate short sales or to stabilize the market price of our securities may have the effect of raising or maintaining the market price of our securities or preventing or mitigating a decline in the market price of our securities. As a result, the price of our securities may be higher than the price that might otherwise exist in the open market. The imposition of a penalty bid might also have an effect on the price of the securities if it discourages resales of the securities.

 

Neither we nor the underwriters make any representation or prediction as to the effect that the transactions described above may have on the price of the securities. If such transactions are commenced, they may be discontinued without notice at any time.

 

The underwriters, dealers and agents may engage in transactions with us, or perform services for us, in the ordinary course of business for which they receive compensation. We will describe the terms of such arrangements in the applicable prospectus supplement.

Sales of our Common Stock, if any, under this prospectus supplement may be made by any method that is deemed an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act. The Sales Agent is not required to sell any specific amount but will act as our sales agent using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between the Sales Agent and us. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in any escrow, trust or similar arrangement.

 

The Sales Agent will be entitled to compensation at a commission rate of 3.0% of the gross sales price of the shares sold under the Sales Agreement.

This summary is not complete and does not contain all of the information that you should consider before deciding to invest in our Common Stock. For a more complete understanding of our company and this offering, you should read carefully this entire prospectus supplement, including the information incorporated by reference into this prospectus supplement, and any free writing prospectus prepared by or on our behalf that we have authorized for use in connection with this offering, including the “Risk Factors” section beginning on page S-7 of this prospectus supplement and the other information included in, or incorporated by reference into, this prospectus supplement.

 

We are a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of innovative drug therapies to improve the lives of patients with metabolic and orphan diseases.

 

Recent Developments

 

On October 8, 2020, we filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”), which was approved by our stockholders at our special meeting of stockholders held on October 23, 2019 and by our board of directors on October 7, 2020. The Certificate of Amendment effected a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of our Common Stock (the “Reverse Split”), in which every fifty (50) shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of October 9, 2020 were combined and converted into one (1) share of Common Stock. In connection with the Reverse Split, proportionate adjustments were made to increase the per share exercise prices and decrease the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants whereby approximately the same aggregate price is required to be paid for such securities upon exercise as had been payable immediately preceding the Reverse Split. While the Reverse Split decreased the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, it did not change the total number of shares of Common Stock or preferred stock authorized for issuance by us, nor did it change the par value of our Common Stock or preferred stock. The first day of trading after the Reverse Stock Split was on October 13, 2020. Unless otherwise indicated, the share numbers contained herein give effect to the Reverse Split.

 

On October 9, 2020 we issued 2,484,853 shares of Common Stock and 820,001 Unit Warrants which resulted in net proceeds of approximately $37.5 million (referred to herein as the “Unit Financing”). On November 3, 2020, our shares of Common Stock were approved for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol RZLT and the initial day of trading was on November 9, 2020.

 

Our Pipeline

 

Our lead clinical asset, RZ358, is an antibody therapy in Phase 2b development as a potential treatment for congenital hyperinsulinism (“CHI”), an ultra-rare pediatric genetic disorder. In February 2020, we announced the initiation of the RZ358-606 Phase 2b study (“RIZE”) globally at multiple study centers. Prior to COVID-19, we had planned to complete the RIZE study by the middle of calendar year 2021. In March 2020, we paused the RIZE study as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the COVID-19 pandemic abates in different regions, we are resuming clinical activities including trial site initiations. We believe that patient enrollment will recommence by the end of calendar year 2020. Further, if we can begin enrolling patients on this timeframe, we believe we will be able to complete the RIZE study in the second half of calendar year 2021.

 

In addition, in the first half of calendar year 2020, we had positive interactions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). In June 2020, we announced that FDA granted us Rare Pediatric Disease (“RPD”) designation for RZ358, which qualifies us to receive a priority review voucher upon marketing approval of the drug in CHI. Such a voucher could be redeemed to receive a priority review of a subsequent marketing application for any drug candidate in any disease indication. Further, we submitted the RIZE protocol to FDA which allows us to expand the study to clinical sites in the United States. We believe that patient enrollment may commence in the United States in the first quarter of calendar year 2021.

 

Our next program, RZ402, is an oral therapy, targeting diabetic macular edema (“DME”). On October 28, 2020, we submitted an IND to the FDA that will require us to make the first milestone payment of $1.0 million within 15 days after acceptance of the IND by the FDA. The FDA accepted our IND filing on December 1, 2020 and we anticipate initiation of a Phase 1 clinical trial for RZ402 prior to the end of the first quarter of calendar year 2021.

RZ358

 

CHI is an ultra-rare pediatric genetic disorder characterized by excessive production of insulin by the pancreas. CHI is caused by mutations in about a dozen known genes associated with pancreatic beta cells and their secretion of insulin. If untreated, it can lead to dangerously low blood sugar levels. Rezolute’s lead candidate, RZ358, is an antibody in Phase 2b development that is designed to prevent severe, persistent low blood sugar in patients with CHI.

 

RZ358 is an intravenously administered human monoclonal antibody that binds to a unique site on the insulin receptor found across effector cells throughout the body in the liver, fat, and muscle. This action allows RZ358 to counteract the effects of elevated insulin in the body. Its unique allosteric mechanism of action is reversible, depends on both insulin levels and blood sugar levels in a dose-dependent manner, and enables patients to achieve normal levels of insulin and glucose. Therefore, we believe that RZ358 is ideally suited as a potential therapy for conditions characterized by excessive insulin production and it is being developed to treat hyperinsulinemia and prevent low blood sugar for diseases such as CHI. As RZ358 acts downstream from the beta cells, across effector cells in the liver, fat, and muscle, it may be universally effective at treating CHI caused by any of the underlying genetic defects.

 

The RIZE study is a multi-center, open-label, repeat-dose Phase 2b study of RZ358 in four sequential dosing cohorts of patients with CHI who are at least two years old and have residual low blood sugar (<70 mg/dL) that is inadequately controlled on existing therapies. In addition to safety and pharmacokinetic evaluations, continuous glucose monitoring (“CGM”) and self-monitored blood glucose will be utilized to evaluate several glycemic efficacy endpoints. The primary endpoint is the time within a glucose target range of 70-180 mg/dL by CGM during weeks 4 and 8 of treatment compared to baseline.

 

RZ402

 

DME is a severe complication of diabetes marked by progressive vision loss and blindness. Consistently high blood sugar levels can cause diabetic retinopathy, a complication characterized by damage to the blood vessels in the eye and fluid leakage into the light-sensitive tissue known as the retina. The accumulation of fluid may lead to DME, or swelling of the macula, the part of the retina responsible for sharp, straight-ahead vision. Currently available treatments for DME involve frequent burdensome injections into the eye or invasive laser surgery.

 

Rezolute is developing RZ402, a small molecule plasma kallikrein inhibitor (“PKI”) for use in DME. As a once-daily oral investigational therapy, RZ402 is designed to improve compliance and treatment outcomes for patients with DME. Elevated plasma levels of the enzyme kallikrein have been associated with increased inflammation, vessel leakage and excess blood vessel growth in the eyes of patients with DME. Genetic and pharmacologic knockout of plasma kallikrein have been shown to protect against vascular endothelial growth factor (“VEGF”) induced retinal blood vessel leakage in murine models without damaging long-term effects.

 

RZ402 is a bioavailable small molecule inhibitor of plasma kallikrein that has shown the potential to prevent the onset of and reverse vascular leakage in a dose-dependent manner in multiple rodent models of whole body and retinal vascular leakage. Target plasma concentrations were exceeded for 24 hours following oral dosing of RZ402 in monkeys and dogs, supporting the potential for once daily dosing in humans. Rezolute has completed a pre-IND meeting with the FDA and the IND-enabling toxicology studies in preparation for filing an IND.

 

Competition

 

We face competition from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, academic institutions, governmental agencies, and private research organizations in recruiting and retaining highly qualified scientific personnel and consultants and in the development and acquisition of technologies.

 

There are a handful of companies developing therapies for CHI that are potential competitors to RZ358. Zealand Pharma is one such company.

 

There are a handful of companies developing oral therapies for diabetic macular edema that are potential competitors to the plasma kallikrein inhibitor therapy, KalVista Pharmaceuticals being one such company.

 

Government Regulation

 

Regulation by governmental authorities in the U.S. and other countries is a significant factor in the development, manufacture and marketing of pharmaceutical products. All of our potential products will require regulatory approval by governmental agencies prior to commercialization. In particular, pharmaceutical therapies are subject to rigorous preclinical testing and clinical trials and other pre-market approval requirements by the FDA and regulatory authorities in foreign countries. Various federal, state and foreign statutes and regulations also govern or influence the manufacturing, safety, labeling, storage, record keeping and marketing of such products.

 

S-4

 

 

We are also subject to various federal, state, and local laws, regulations and recommendations relating to safe working conditions; laboratory and manufacturing practices; the experimental use of animals; and the use and disposal of hazardous or potentially hazardous substances, including radioactive compounds and infectious disease agents, used in connection with our research, development and manufacturing.

 

Employees

 

As of December 14, 2020, we had 21 full-time employees, all of whom have experience with pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical product companies. None of our employees or contractors are covered by collective bargaining agreements.

RISK FACTORS

 

Investing in shares of our Common Stock involves significant risks. Please see the risk factors below and the additional risk factors set forth under the heading “Risk Factors” in Item 1A. of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, and in Part II, Item 1A. of our most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020, each of which are on file with the SEC and are incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement. These risks may be revised or supplemented in future filings of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Reports on Form 10-K, which are also incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider these risks as well as other information we include or incorporate by reference in this prospectus supplement.

 

Risks Related to Our Governing Documents

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware is the exclusive forum for certain litigation that may be initiated by our stockholders, including claims under the Securities Act, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers or employees.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf, (ii) any action asserting a claim for breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers, employees or agents to us or our stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our certificate of incorporation or our bylaws or (iv) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. The choice of forum provision may limit a stockholder’s ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum that it finds favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers, employees or agents, which may discourage such lawsuits against us and our directors, officers, employees and agents. Stockholders who do bring a claim in the Court of Chancery could face additional litigation costs in pursuing any such claim, particularly if they do not reside in or near the State of Delaware. The Court of Chancery may also reach different judgments or results than would other courts, including courts where a stockholder considering an action may be located or would otherwise choose to bring the action, and such judgments or results may be more favorable to us than to our stockholders. Alternatively, if a court were to find the choice of forum provision contained in our certificate of incorporation to be inapplicable or unenforceable in an action, we may incur additional costs associated with resolving such action in other jurisdictions, which could adversely affect our business and financial condition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the exclusive provision shall not preclude or contract the scope of exclusive federal or concurrent jurisdiction for actions brought under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the respective rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

Risks Related to This Offering

 

A substantial number of shares of Common Stock may be sold in the market following this offering, which may depress the market price for our shares of Common Stock.

 

Sales of a substantial number of our shares of Common Stock in the public market following this offering could cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline. Although there can be no assurance that any of the $50.0 million worth of Common Stock being offered under this prospectus supplement will be sold or the price at which any such shares might be sold, assuming that an aggregate of 2,526,529 shares of our Common Stock are sold during the term of the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer, in each case, for example, at a price of $19.79 per share, the last reported sale price of our Common Stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on December 14, 2020, upon completion of this offering, based on 8,352,277 shares of our Common Stock outstanding as of December 14, 2020, we will have outstanding an aggregate of 10,878,806 shares of Common Stock, assuming no exercise of currently outstanding warrants and stock options.

 

Additional dilution may result from the issuance of our Common Stock in connection with the exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants, as well as other financing efforts.

 

You may experience future dilution as a result of future equity offerings.

 

In order to raise additional capital, we may in the future offer additional shares of our Common Stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of our Common Stock at prices that may not be the same as the price per share in this offering. We may sell shares of Common Stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for our shares of Common Stock in any other offering at a price per share that is less than the price per share paid by investors in this offering, and investors purchasing shares of Common Stock or other securities convertible into or exchangeable for our shares of Common Stock in the future could have rights superior to existing shareholders. The price per share at which we sell additional shares of Common Stock or other securities convertible or exchangeable into our shares of Common Stock, in future transactions may be higher or lower than the price per share paid by investors in this offering.

 

S-7

 

 

We have broad discretion in how we use the net proceeds of this offering, and we may not use these proceeds effectively or in ways with which you agree.

 

We have not designated any portion of the net proceeds from this offering to be used for any particular purpose. Our management will have broad discretion as to the application of the net proceeds of this offering and could use them for purposes other than those contemplated at the time of this offering. Our shareholders may not agree with the manner in which our management chooses to allocate and spend the net proceeds. Moreover, our management may use the net proceeds for corporate purposes that may cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline.

 

Investors in this offering will experience immediate dilution in the book value per share of the Common Stock purchased in the offering.

 

The shares of Common Stock sold in this offering, if any, will be sold from time to time at various prices. However, the expected offering price of the shares of Common Stock will be substantially higher than the net tangible book value per share of our currently outstanding shares of Common Stock. After giving effect to the sale of shares of our Common Stock in the aggregate amount of $50.0 million at an assumed offering price of $19.79 per share, the last reported sale price of our Common Stock on December 14, 2020 on the Nasdaq Capital Market, and after deducting estimated commissions and estimated offering expenses, our as-adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2020 would have been approximately $90.3 million, or approximately $8.30 per share of Common Stock. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of approximately $3.28 per share of Common Stock to our existing shareholders and an immediate dilution in as-adjusted net tangible book value of approximately $11.49 per share to new investors of shares of our Common Stock in this offering. See “Dilution” on page S-10 of this prospectus supplement.

 

The actual number of shares of Common Stock we will issue under the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer, at any one time or in total, is uncertain.

 

Subject to certain limitations in the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer and compliance with applicable law, we have the discretion to deliver placement notices to Oppenheimer at any time throughout the term of the Sales Agreement. The number of shares that are sold by Oppenheimer after delivering a placement notice will fluctuate based on a number of factors, including the market price of the Common Stock during the sales period, limits that we set with Oppenheimer, and the demand for our Common Stock during the sales period. Because the price per share of each share sold will fluctuate during this offering, it is not currently possible to predict the number of shares that will be sold or the gross proceeds to be raised in connection with those sales.

 

We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future. As a result, you must rely on stock appreciation for any return on your investment.

 

We do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our Common Stock in the foreseeable future. Any payment of cash dividends will also depend on our financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements and other factors and will be at the discretion of our board of directors. Accordingly, you will have to rely on capital appreciation, if any, to earn a return on your investment in our Common Stock. Furthermore, we may in the future become subject to additional contractual restrictions on, or prohibitions against, the payment of dividends.

 

The Common Stock offered hereby will be sold in “at the market” offerings, and investors who buy shares at different times will likely pay different prices.

 

Investors who purchase shares in this offering at different times will likely pay different prices, and so may experience different levels of dilution and different outcomes in their investment results. We will have discretion, subject to market demand, to vary the timing, prices, and numbers of shares sold in this offering. In addition, subject to the final determination by our board of directors, there is no minimum or maximum sales price for shares to be sold in this offering. Investors may experience a decline in the value of the shares they purchase in this offering as a result of sales made at prices lower than the prices they paid.

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

From time to time, we may issue and sell our shares of Common Stock resulting in aggregate gross sales proceeds of up to $50.0 million. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time. There can be no assurance that, in the future, we will sell any shares under or fully utilize the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer as a source of financing.

 

We currently intend to use the net proceeds from this offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include capital expenditures, research and development expenditures, preclinical study and clinical trial expenditures, acquisitions of new technologies and investments, and business combinations.

 

The precise amount and timing of the application of the net proceeds will depend upon a number of factors, such as the timing and progress of our research and development efforts and the timing and progress of any partnering efforts. As of the date of this prospectus supplement, we cannot specify with certainty the particular uses for the net proceeds from this offering. Depending on the outcome of our efforts and other unforeseen events, our plans and priorities may change, and we may apply the net proceeds of this offering in different manners than we currently anticipate. Accordingly, our management will have broad discretion in the timing and application of these net proceeds. Pending application of the net proceeds as described above, we intend to temporarily invest the proceeds in short-term, interest-bearing instruments.

DILUTION

 

If you invest in our Common Stock, your interest will be diluted immediately to the extent of the difference between the public offering price per share and the adjusted net tangible book value per share after this offering.

 

The net tangible book value of our Common Stock as of September 30, 2020 was approximately $4.3 million, or approximately $0.72 per share. After giving effect to the closing of the Unit Financing that resulted in net proceeds of approximately $37.6 million on October 9, 2020, on a pro forma basis the net tangible book value of our Common Stock as of September 30, 2020 was approximately $41.9 million, or approximately $5.02 per share. Accordingly, the Unit Financing resulted in an increase in pro forma net tangible book value of approximately $4.30 per share. Net tangible book value per share represents the amount of our total tangible assets, excluding goodwill and intangible assets, less total liabilities, divided by the total number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding. Dilution per share to new investors in this offering represents the difference between the amount per share paid by new investors for each share in this offering and the net tangible book value per share immediately following the completion of this offering.

 

After giving effect to the sale of our Common Stock in the aggregate amount of $50.0 million at an assumed offering price of $19.79 per share, the last reported sale price of our Common Stock on December 14, 2020 on the Nasdaq Capital Market, and after deducting estimated commissions and estimated offering expenses, our as-adjusted net tangible book value as of September 30, 2020 would have been approximately $90.3 million, or approximately $8.30 per share. This represents an immediate increase in pro forma net tangible book value of approximately $3.28 per share to our existing shareholders and an immediate dilution in as-adjusted net tangible book value of approximately $11.49 per share to new investors of our Common Stock in this offering, as illustrated by the following table:

 

Assumed public offering price per share       $19.79 
Net tangible book value per share as of September 30, 2020  $0.72     
Increase per share attributable to the private placement on October 9, 2020   4.30     
Increase per share attributable to this offering   3.28     
As-adjusted net tangible book value per share after giving effect to this offering        8.30 
Dilution per share to new investors (1)(2)       $11.49 

 

 

Notes

 

(1)Calculated as the difference between the assumed public offering price per share and the as-adjusted net tangible book value per share after this offering.
(2)The foregoing is based on 5,867,058 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of September 30, 2020, and the pro forma impact of the issuance of 2,484,853 shares of Common Stock in the Unit Financing on October 9, 2020, for a total of 8,351,911 shares of Common Stock.  This amount excludes the following:

 

·618,307 shares of our Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of warrants outstanding as of September 30, 2020, all of which are currently exercisable;

 

·820,001 shares of our Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Unit Warrants issued on October 9, 2020 in the Unit Financing exercisable at $19.50 per share, All of the Unit Warrants are currently exercisable, except to the extent that certain of the Unit Warrants are subject to a blocker provision, which restricts the exercise of a warrant if, as a result of such exercise, the warrant holder, together with its affiliates and any other person whose beneficial ownership of Common Stock would be aggregated with the warrant holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, would beneficially own in excess of 4.99%, 9.99%, or 14.99% of our then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (including the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise), as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of such Unit Warrant;

 

·944,459 shares of our Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options outstanding as of September 30, 2020, at a weighted average exercise price of $33.43 per share, of which stock options to purchase 477,219 shares of Common Stock were then exercisable;

 

·46,950 shares of our Common Stock reserved for future grants of stock options (or other similar equity instruments) under our equity incentive plans.

 

S-10

 

 

The table above assumes for illustrative purposes that an aggregate of 2,526,529 shares of our Common Stock are sold during the term of the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer at a price of $19.79 per share, the last reported sale price of our Common Stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on December 14, 2020, for aggregate net proceeds of approximately $48,360,000, after deducting commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us in the aggregate amount of $1,640,000. The as adjusted information is illustrative only and will adjust based on the actual price to the public, the actual number of shares sold and other terms of the offering determined at the time the shares of Common Stock are sold pursuant to this prospectus supplement. The shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer are being sold from time to time at various prices. An increase of $1.00 per share in the price at which the shares are sold from the assumed offering price of $19.79 per share shown in the table above, assuming all of our Common Stock in the aggregate amount of $50.0 million during the term of the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer is sold at that price, would increase our as adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering to $8.39 per share and would increase the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering to $12.40 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. A decrease of $1.00 per share in the price at which the shares are sold from the assumed offering price of $19.79 per share shown in the table above, assuming all of our Common Stock in the aggregate amount of $50.0 million during the term of the Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer is sold at that price, would decrease our as adjusted net tangible book value per share after the offering to $8.20 per share and would decrease the dilution in net tangible book value per share to new investors in this offering to $10.59 per share, after deducting commissions and estimated aggregate offering expenses payable by us. This information is supplied for illustrative purposes only.

 

To the extent that any warrants or stock options have been or are exercised, new stock options are granted under our equity incentive plans or we otherwise issue additional shares of Common Stock in the future, there will be further dilution to new investors. In addition, we may choose to raise additional capital due to market conditions or strategic considerations even if we believe we have sufficient funds for our current or future operating plans. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the issuance of these securities could result in further dilution to our shareholders.

 

S-11

 

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

 

We have entered into a Sales Agreement with Oppenheimer, which we have filed as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement forms a part, under which we may offer and sell up to $50.0 million of our shares of Common Stock from time to time through Oppenheimer, acting as Sales Agent. Sales of our shares of Common Stock, if any, under this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus will be made by any method that is deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act.

 

Each time we wish to issue and sell shares of Common Stock under the Sales Agreement, we will notify Oppenheimer of the number of shares to be issued, the dates on which such sales are anticipated to be made, any limitation on the number of shares to be sold in any one day and any minimum price below which sales may not be made. Once we have so instructed Oppenheimer, unless Oppenheimer declines to accept the terms of such notice, Oppenheimer has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell such shares up to the amount specified on such terms. The obligations of Oppenheimer under the Sales Agreement to sell our shares of Common Stock are subject to a number of conditions that we must meet. We or Oppenheimer may suspend the offering of our common stock upon delivering notice and subject to other conditions, as further described in the Sales Agreement.

 

The settlement of sales of shares between us and Oppenheimer is generally anticipated to occur on the second trading day following the date on which the sale was made. Sales of our shares of Common Stock as contemplated in this prospectus supplement will be settled through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company or by such other means as we and Oppenheimer may agree upon. There is no arrangement for funds to be received in an escrow, trust or similar arrangement.

 

We will pay Oppenheimer a commission for its services in acting as Sales Agent equal to 3.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds we receive from each sale of our shares of Common Stock. Because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this offering, the actual total public offering amount, commissions and proceeds to us, if any, are not determinable at this time. In addition, we have agreed to reimburse Oppenheimer for the fees and disbursements of its counsel, payable upon execution of the Sales Agreement, in an amount not to exceed $60,000, in addition to certain ongoing disbursements of its legal counsel. We estimate that the total expenses for the offering, excluding any commissions or expense reimbursement payable to Oppenheimer under the terms of the Sales Agreement, will be approximately $80,000. The remaining sale proceeds, after deducting any other transaction fees, will equal our net proceeds from the sale of such shares.

 

Oppenheimer will provide written confirmation to us before the open on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the day following each day on which shares of Common Stock are sold under the Sales Agreement. Each confirmation will include the number of shares sold on that day, the corresponding sales price and the issuance price payable to us. We will report at least quarterly the number of shares of Common Stock sold through Oppenheimer, the net proceeds to us, and the compensation paid by us to Oppenheimer in connection with the sales of our common stock.

 

In connection with the sale of the shares of Common Stock on our behalf, Oppenheimer will be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act, and the compensation of Oppenheimer will be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts. We have agreed to indemnify Oppenheimer against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. We have also agreed to contribute to payments Oppenheimer may be required to make in respect of such liabilities.

 

The offering of our shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all shares of Common Stock subject to the Sales Agreement and (ii) the termination of the Sales Agreement as permitted therein.

 

This summary of the material provisions of the Sales Agreement does not purport to be a complete statement of its terms and conditions. A copy of the Sales Agreement is filed as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement forms a part.

 

Oppenheimer and its affiliates may in the future provide various investment banking, commercial banking, financial advisory and other financial services for us and our affiliates, for which services they may in the future receive customary fees. In the course of its business, Oppenheimer may actively trade our securities for its own account or for the accounts of customers, and, accordingly, Oppenheimer may at any time hold long or short positions in such securities.

 

A prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus in electronic format may be made available on a website maintained by Oppenheimer, and Oppenheimer may distribute the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus electronically.

ITEM 15. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

 

We are incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, parties to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of such corporation), by reason of the fact that such person was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such person as an officer, director, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided that such person acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was illegal. A Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation by reason of the fact that such person was a director, officer, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests except that no indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the officer or director is adjudged to be liable to the corporation. Where an officer or director is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action referred to above, the corporation must indemnify him against the expenses which such officer or director has actually and reasonably incurred. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws provide for the indemnification of our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

 

Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duties as a director, except for liability for any:

 

·transaction from which the director derives an improper personal benefit;

 

·act or omission not in good faith or that involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

 

·unlawful payment of dividends or redemption of shares; or

 

·breach of a director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders.

 

Our certificate of incorporation includes such a provision. Expenses incurred by any officer or director in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition shall be paid by us upon delivery to us of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such director or officer, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified by us.

 

II-1

 

 

As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, we have entered into indemnity agreements with each of our directors and executive officers. These agreements, among other things, require us to indemnify each director and officer to the fullest extent permitted by law and advance expenses to each indemnitee in connection with any proceeding in which indemnification is available.

 

We have an insurance policy covering our officers and directors with respect to certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, or otherwise.

ITEM 17. UNDERTAKINGS

 

(a)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1)To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

(i)To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

(ii)To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

 

(iii)To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

 

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (a)(1)(ii) and (a)(1)(iii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

 

(2)That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(3)remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(4)That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:

 

(i)Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and

 

(ii)Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

 

(5)That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities:

 

II-3

 

 

The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to the registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

(i)Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

(ii)Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

 

(iii)The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

 

(iv)Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.

 

(b)That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(c)Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

(d)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes to file an application for the purpose of determining the eligibility of the trustee to act under subsection (a) of section 310 of the Trust Indenture Act in accordance with the rules and regulations prescribed by the Commission under section 305(b)(2) of the Trust Indenture Act.
