|PRIVATE PLACEMENT FINANCING||
On January 30, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with nine separate accredited investors (“Investors”) providing for the issuance and sale by the Company to the Investors, in a private placement, of an aggregate of 11,400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (collectively, the “Shares”) at a purchase price of $0.25 per share and three series of warrants, the Series A warrants, the Series B warrants and the Series C warrants, to purchase up to an aggregate of 34,200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (collectively, the “Warrants,” and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, collectively, the “Warrant Shares”), for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $2,850,000 (the “Private Placement Financing”).
Upon the closing of the Private Placement Financing on February 4, 2014 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Investors, pursuant to which the Company became obligated, subject to certain conditions, to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before March 21, 2014 one or more registration statements to register for resale under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (i) the Shares and the Warrant Shares, plus (ii) an additional number of shares of common stock equal to 33% of the total number of Shares and Warrant Shares, to account for adjustments, if any, to the number of Warrant Shares issuable pursuant to the terms of the Warrants (the securities set forth in this clause (ii), the “Additional Shares”). Under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is permitted to reduce the number of shares covered by a registration statement if such reduction is required by the SEC as a condition for permitting such registration statement to become effective and treated as a resale registration statement (the “Cutback Provisions”). In response to comments received from the SEC and in accordance with the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company reduced the number of shares included in its draft resale registration statement by the number of Additional Shares. The Company’s failure to satisfy certain other obligations and deadlines set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement may subject the Company to payment of monetary penalties as discussed below. The resale registration statement was declared effective on July 2, 2014. As described below, in the event that we fail to comply with certain requirements in the Registration Rights Agreement, we may be required to pay liquidated damages to the investors.
The Warrants are exercisable immediately upon issuance. The Series A warrants have an exercise price of $0.30 per share and expire five years from the date of their issuance. The Series B warrants have an exercise price of $0.35 per share and expire on the earlier of 12 months after their issuance date and six months after the first date on which the resale of all Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) is covered by one or more effective registration statements. The Series B warrants will expire on January 2, 2015. The Series C warrants have an exercise price of $0.40 per share and expire on the earlier of 18 months after their issuance date and nine months after the first date on which the resale of all Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) is covered by one or more effective registration statements. The Series C warrants will expire on April 2, 2015. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock into which each of the Warrants is exercisable and the exercise price therefor are subject to adjustment as set forth in the Warrants, including, without limitation, adjustment to both the exercise price of the Warrants in the event of certain subsequent issuances and sales of shares of the Company’s common stock (or securities convertible or exercisable into shares of common stock) at a price per share lower than the then-effective exercise price of the Warrants, in which case the per share exercise price of the Warrants will be adjusted to equal such lower price per share and the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants will be adjusted accordingly so that the aggregate exercise price upon full exercise of the Warrants immediately before and immediately after such per share exercise price adjustment are equal. The Warrants are also subject to customary adjustments in the event of stock dividends and splits, subsequent rights offerings and pro rata distributions to the Company’s common stockholders, and provide that they shall not be exercisable in the event and to the extent that the exercise thereof would result in the holder of the Warrant or any of its affiliates beneficially owning more than 4.9% of the Company’s common stock.
The Company may be required to make certain payments to the investors in the Private Placement Financing under certain circumstances in the future pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement. These potential future payments include: (a) potential partial damages for failure to register the common stock issued or issuable upon exercise of Warrants (in a cash amount equal to 1% of the price paid to the Company by each investor in the Private Placement Financing on the date of and on each 30-day anniversary of such failure until the cure thereof); (b) amounts payable if the Company and its transfer agent fail to timely remove certain restrictive legends from certificates representing shares of common stock issued in the Private Placement Financing or issuable upon exercise of the Warrants; (c) expense reimbursement for the lead investor in the Private Placement Financing; and (d) payments in respect of claims for which the Company provides indemnification. There is no cap to the potential consideration. On July 2, 2014, we received from the SEC a Notice of Effectiveness of our Registration Statement related to the Private Placement which satisfied some of our obligation to register these securities with the SEC.
The Company accounted for the Warrants relating to the aforementioned Private Placement in accordance with ASC 815-10, Derivatives and Hedging. Because the Warrants are not indexed to the Company’s stock and are not classified in stockholders’ equity, they are recorded as liabilities at fair value. They are marked to market each reporting period through the consolidated statement of operations.
On the closing date, the derivative liabilities were recorded at fair value of $10,391,693. Given that the fair value of the derivative liabilities exceeded the total proceeds of the private placement of $2,850,000, no net amounts were available to be allocated to the common stock. The $7,541,693 amount by which the recorded liabilities exceeded the proceeds was charged to other expense as of the Closing Date.
The value of the derivative liability as of September 30, 2014 was $6,270,000. As of result of a change in the estimated fair market value of the derivative liability we recorded other income of $4,121,693 for the year ended September 30, 2014, respectively. Such change in the estimated fair value was primarily due to the fluctuation in the Company’s common stock price.
The derivative liabilities were valued as of February 4, 2014 and September 30, 2014, using Monte Carlo Simulation with the following assumptions:
At the Closing Date, the Company issued 11,400,000 shares of common stock and recorded the par value of the shares issued of $11,400 (at par value of $0.001 per share) with a corresponding reduction in additional paid-in capital, given that the fair value of the warrant liability recorded exceeded the total consideration received as of the Closing Date.
