On July 11, 2014 (the Closing Date), Lightwave Logic, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the Company) completed a Regulation D Rule 506 private placement offering solely to accredited investors of units, with each unit consisting of 67,000 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share (Common Stock) and a warrant (each, a Warrant) to purchase 33,500 shares of Common Stock at $1.00 per share and 33,500 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share (each, a Unit), for $50,000 per Unit, or approximately $0.75 per share of Common Stock. The Company also simultaneously completed a Regulation S private placement offering of Units having the same terms as the Regulation D, and in total, the Company sold 60.8 Units for total proceeds to the Company in both offerings equal to $3,040,000. Immediately prior to the commencement of the offerings, the Company had 53,080,469 shares issued and outstanding, and after the issuance of 4,073,600 shares in the aggregate pursuant to the offerings, or 7.67% of the total issued and outstanding immediately prior to the commencement of such offerings, the Company has 57,154,069 shares issued and outstanding as of the date of this Report. The Company sold 4,073,600 Warrants in the offerings, which, for the avoidance of any doubt, were a part of the Units sold.
In connection with the offerings, each investor executed a subscription agreement in the form of Exhibit 10.1 or 10.2 attached hereto, as applicable. Each subscription agreement contains registration rights whereby the Company shall, within sixty (60) calendar days from the Closing Date, register the Common Stock and the shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrants by filing a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Warrants shall expire on the fifth (5th) anniversary of the date of subscription, and the forms of Warrant are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.2 and 10.3. The offerings were made directly by the Company and no underwriter or placement agent was engaged by the Company. The Company expects to use 60% of the proceeds from the offerings for research and development and 40% for working capital purposes.
A copy of the press release announcing the completion of the offerings is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
