Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On March 28, 2008, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 to Asset Purchase Agreement with the Representative (the Purchase Agreement Amendment) to amend the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement Amendment provides that in consideration for the Acquired Assets, the Company shall issue to Sol Logic an aggregate of 677,940 shares of restricted Common Stock (the Initial Shares). Of these shares, 467,545 were issued to Sol Logic on December 19, 2007, the date of the Purchase Agreement. The remaining 210,395 shares were issued to Sol Logic upon execution of the Purchase Agreement Amendment. In addition, in the event the Companys revenues on certain specified products set forth in the Purchase Agreement Amendment either equal or exceed $3,000,000 for the six-month period commencing on March 6, 2008 and ending on September 6, 2008 or equal or exceed $5,000,000 for the eighteen-month period commencing on March 6, 2008 and ending on September 6, 2009, the Company will be obligated to issue that number of additional shares of Common Stock (the Additional Shares and together with the Initial Shares, the Shares) obtained by dividing $1,921,924 by the greater of $1.10 or the volume weighted average closing price of the Companys common stock over the 20 trading-day period immediately prior to the date the Additional Shares are issued, subject to the terms of the escrow described below. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement Amendment, the maximum number of Additional Shares that may be issued are 1,747,204.
Concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement Amendment, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 to Registration Rights Agreement (the Rights Agreement Amendment) to amend the Rights Agreement. Under the terms of the Rights Agreement Amendment, the Company will register an additional 371,755 of the Initial Shares, for a total of 677,940 shares of Common Stock, for resale by Sol Logic.
In the event any Additional Shares become issuable pursuant to the Purchase Agreement Amendment, approximately 47.5% of these shares will be deposited by the Company into an escrow account to satisfy any indemnification and reimbursement claims of the Company, and the remaining shares will be issued directly to Sol Logic.
Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets
The information disclosed under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K/A with respect to the execution of the Purchase Agreement Amendment is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.01 in its entirety.
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sale of Equity Securities
The disclosures made in response to Items 1.01 and 2.01 above are incorporated herein by reference.
The issuance of shares of restricted Common Stock in consideration for the acquisition of certain assets of Sol Logic are exempt from registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 (the Act) pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder.
Item 8.01 Other Events
The issuance of the Shares pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement Amendment referenced in Item 1.01 above will not increase the Companys shareholders equity to more than $6,000,000 and thus, the Company believes that it will not be in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of The American Stock Exchange (AMEX) Company Guide (the Company Guide), which provides that AMEX will normally consider suspending dealings in, or removing from the list, securities of a company which sustains net losses in its five most recent fiscal years and has shareholders equity of less than $6,000,000, unless the company has total market capitalization of at least $50,000,000, or total assets and revenue of $50,000,000.
The information in this Item 8.01 of Form 8-K shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
