|(f)||Dr. Schwartz is a citizen of the United States of America.|
|Item 3.||Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.|
The source of the funds used for purchases by the Reporting Person are personal funds.
|Item 4.||Purpose of Transaction.|
All of the shares of the Company owned by the Reporting Person were, at the time of their purchase, acquired for investment purposes in the ordinary course of business.
On May 21, 2019, the Company and the Reporting Person agreed to amend and restate in its entirety that certain Second Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrant (the “Existing Warrant”) pursuant to a Third Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrant (the “Warrant”). The Existing Warrant was issued in connection with Dr. Schwartz’s additional $300,000.00 investment in the Company, as evidenced by that certain Second Amended and Restated Promissory Note in the aggregate principal amount of $1,620,000.00 dated February 6, 2019 (the “Note”). The shares of the Company’s common stock issuable in connection with an exercise of the Warrant are referred to herein as the “Warrant Shares”.
The Warrant has an exercise price of $0.836 per share for the initial 221,292 shares that related to Dr. Schwartz’s November 2018 investment (the “First Tranche”), an exercise price of $0.704 per share for the additional 742,188 shares that related to Dr. Schwartz’s January 2019 investment (the “Second Tranche”), an exercise price of $1.188 per share for the additional 138,889 shares that related to Dr. Schwartz’s February 2019 investment (the “Third Tranche”) and an exercise price of $0.704 per share for each installment of Additional Warrant Shares (as defined below) that will be added to the Warrant Shares. The exercise price in each case is equal to 110% of the closing sale price of the common stock on the date of the applicable investment. Each tranche of the Warrant is exercisable beginning on the sixth month anniversary of the date of the related investment through the fifth year anniversary of the date of the related investment.
On February 1, 2019 and the first day of each calendar month thereafter while the Note and the Warrant remain outstanding, a number of additional shares will be added to the Warrant Shares (“Additional Warrant Shares”) equal to (1) one-half percent (1/2%) of the outstanding principal balance of the Note on such date, divided by (2) $0.704, with the number of Additional Warrant Shares to be rounded to the nearest number of whole shares. The principal change effected by the Third Amended and Restated Common Stock Purchase Warrant is to clarify the formula for the calculation of the Additional Warrant Shares. The current principal balance of the Note is $1,620,000, and therefore, under the amended formula, Dr. Schwartz is currently receiving rights under the Warrant to purchase Additional Warrant Shares on the first day of each month equal to 11,506 shares of common stock at $0.704 per share. Dr. Schwartz has received and may continue to receive stock options in the Company pursuant to his employment agreement, as described in Item 5.
