Note 7 — Common and Preferred Stock
On November 7, 2019, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with certain institutional and accredited investors, including Dr. Lon E. Bell, Chairman of the Board and former Chief Executive Officer, for a private placement of the Company’s common stock and warrants to purchase common stock for aggregate gross proceeds of $3.5 million and net proceeds of $3.1 million (the “Offering”). The Offering closed on November 13, 2019. In the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of (i) 544,950 shares of common stock at $2.4763 per share and (ii) pre-funded warrants to purchase 868,443 shares of common stock that are immediately exercisable and have no expiration date, at a price of $2.4763 less a nominal exercise price of $0.001 per pre-funded warrant. The Company also issued to the investors warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 1,766,751 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $2.32 per share that are immediately exercisable and will expire five years from the issuance date. As compensation to the placement agent in the Offering, in addition to a cash fee for its services, the Company also issued to the placement agent a warrant to purchase up to 70,670 shares of common stock, with an exercise price of $2.9716 per share. The other terms of the placement agent warrant are substantially the same as the investor warrants. For his investment of $500,000, Dr. Bell received 201,914 shares of common stock and 252,393 warrants in the Offering. Pursuant to a registration rights agreement, the Company filed a registration statement with the SEC (which was declared effective on December 20, 2019) to register the resale of the shares of common stock and the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants issued in the Offering.
Reverse Stock Split
On August 15, 2019, after receipt of stockholder and Board approval, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of Ideal Power Inc. to effect a one-for-ten (1:10) reverse stock split of all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company’s common stock began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis when the market opened on August 20, 2019. The par value of the Company’s common stock remained unchanged at $0.001 per share after the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split reduced the number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding from 14,722,840 to 1,474,001, inclusive of full shares received for fractional interests. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the outstanding shares of the Company’s preferred stock was reduced from 810,000 shares to 81,000 shares. The number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock was not changed by the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split proportionately affected the number of shares of the Company’s common stock available for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock subject to all options, warrants and stock awards of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the reverse stock split were proportionately adjusted in accordance with their terms.
The Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock.
On February 21, 2019, a shareholder converted 708,430 shares of preferred stock to 70,843 shares of common stock.
