On December 30, 2015 (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 82,866 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) and a warrant (each, a “Warrant”) to purchase 82,866 shares of Common Stock at $0.80 per share (each, a “Unit”), for $50,000 per Unit, or approximately $0.60 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 offering. In total, the Company sold 50 Units for total proceeds to the Company in the offering equal to $2,500,000.  Immediately prior to the commencement of the offering, the Company had 61,253,780 shares issued and outstanding, and after the issuance of 4,143,300 shares in the aggregate pursuant to the offering, or 6.76% of the total issued and outstanding immediately prior to the commencement of such offering, the Company has 65,231,348 shares issued and outstanding as of the date of this Report.
