The Company has 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock authorized at $0.001 par value, 30,000 of which have been designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A Preferred”). At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had 10,000 shares of Series A Preferred and no shares of preferred stock issued or outstanding, respectively. The Company has 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock authorized at $0.001 par value per share, of which 75,148,018 shares were issued and 75,126,168 shares were outstanding as of September 30, 2018 and of which 74,599,749 shares were issued and 74,577,899 shares were outstanding as of December 31, 2017.
On March 29, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Fir Tree, its majority stockholder, pursuant to which Fir Tree agreed to purchase 10,000 shares of the Company’s newly-designated Series A Preferred, at a price of $1,000 per share. An initial closing was conducted on April 2, 2018 providing $10.0 million of gross proceeds and $9.7 million of net proceeds after expenses to the Company.
Each share of Series A Preferred ranks senior to the Company’s common stock with respect to dividend rights and rights upon the liquidation, winding-up or dissolution of the Company and has a stated value of $1,000 per share (the “Stated Value”). In the event the Company is liquidated, wound up or dissolved, or if the Company effects any Deemed Liquidation Event (as defined below), the holders of Series A Preferred are entitled to receive in respect thereof the greater of (i) the Stated Value plus any accrued and unpaid dividends thereon, (ii) the amount the holder thereof would receive if such shares of Series A Preferred were converted into common stock immediately prior to such liquidation, dissolution, winding up or Deemed Liquidation Event or (iii) a liquidating distribution equal to 1.5 times the Stated Value. A “Deemed Liquidation Event” includes certain merger or consolidation transactions, a sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, a change of control transaction or similar event.
Holders of Series A Preferred are entitled to vote with holders of the Company’s common stock and are entitled to one vote per share of common stock into which a share of Series A Preferred is then-convertible on any matter on which holders of the capital stock of the Company are entitled to vote. Each share of Series A Preferred was initially and as of September 30, 2018 convertible, at the option of the holder at any time, into a number of shares of common stock determined by dividing the Stated Value plus any dividends accrued but unpaid thereon by the conversion price of $1.15 (subject to adjustment for stock splits, combinations, certain distributions or similar events). In addition, for so long as shares of Series A Preferred are outstanding, the affirmative vote or consent of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred, voting together as a separate class, is necessary before taking certain actions, including but not limited to (i) amending the articles of incorporation, the bylaws or the Certificate of Designation for the Series A Preferred in a manner that would materially and adversely or disproportionately affect the powers, preferences or rights of the Series A Preferred, (ii) liquidating, dissolving or winding up the Company or entering into a Deemed Liquidation Event, (iii) creating or issuing any class of capital stock unless it ranks junior to the Series A Preferred with respect to the distribution of assets on the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company or any Deemed Liquidation Event, payment of dividends and rights of redemption, (iv) reclassifying, altering or amending any existing security that is pari passu or junior to the Series A Preferred with respect to the distribution of assets on the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company or any Deemed Liquidation Event, payment of dividends and rights of redemption if such reclassification, alteration or amendment would render such other security senior or pari passu with the Series A Preferred in respect of any such right, preference or privilege, (v) subject to certain exceptions, purchasing or redeeming any shares of capital stock or paying any dividend or making any distribution thereon and (vi) issuing any shares of Series A Preferred to anyone other than the original holders of the Series A Preferred. Holders of Series A Preferred are entitled to cumulative dividends payable semi-annually in arrears at a rate of (i) 10% per year, if paid in cash, or (ii) 12% per year, if, at the election of the Company, paid through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred. In addition to the dividend rights described above, holders of Series A Preferred are entitled to receive dividends or distributions declared or paid on common stock on an as-converted basis. Following the end of the third quarter of 2018, the Company paid the initial preferred dividend on all outstanding shares of Series A Preferred through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred. See Note 10 -- Subsequent Events.
The Company may redeem shares of Series A Preferred at any time in cash at a price per share equal to the greater of (i) the Stated Value plus any accrued and unpaid dividends thereon and (ii) the product of 1.5 times the Stated Value.
