Under the rights offering, Cytori has distributed one non-transferable subscription right for each share of common stock held on the previously announced record date of May 20, 2016. Each right entitles the holder to purchase one unit at the subscription price of $2.90 per unit, composed of one share of common stock and 0.5 of a warrant, with each whole warrant exercisable to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $3.48 per share for 30 months from the date of issuance. Cytori has applied to list the warrants on NASDAQ, although there is no assurance that a sufficient number of subscription rights will be exercised so that the warrants will meet the minimum listing criteria to be accepted for listing on NASDAQ under the symbol “CTYXW.” The warrants may be redeemed by Cytori prior to their expiration if Cytori’s common stock closes above $8.70 per share for 10 consecutive trading days. The subscription rights are non-transferrable and may only be exercised during the anticipated subscription period commencing today through 5:00 PM ET on Thursday, June 9, 2016, unless extended. A registration statement relating to these securities has been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Holders who fully exercise their basic subscription rights will be entitled, if available, to subscribe for an additional amount of units that are not purchased by other stockholders, on a pro rata basis and subject to ownership limitations.
Cytori has engaged Maxim Group LLC as dealer-manager for the rights offering.
Each stockholder of record as of May 20, 2016 will receive by mail an information packet that explains the rights offering.
