HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLSE) (the “Company” or “Pulse Biosciences”), a novel bioelectric medicine company, today announced that it has commenced its previously-announced rights offering of up to 4,279,600 of units (the “Units,” and each, a “Unit”) at the Initial Price (as defined below) with an aggregate offering value of up to $30,000,000. The subscription rights will expire and have no value if they are not exercised prior to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on June 8, 2020 (the “Expiration Date”).
Pursuant to the rights offering, Pulse Biosciences is distributing, at no charge to the holders of its common stock, non-transferable subscription rights to purchase the Units. Each Unit shall consist of one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, and 0.15 warrants to purchase shares of common stock. The subscription price per Unit shall be equal to the lesser of (i) $7.01 per Unit (the “Initial Price”) or (ii) the volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock for the five trading day period through and including the Expiration Date (the “Alternate Price”). The subscription price will determine the final number of Units issuable, and subsequently the pro rata number of Units to which stockholders can subscribe. Each warrant will be exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price that shall be equal to the subscription price for the Units.
Stockholders wishing to exercise subscription rights must timely pay $7.01 per Unit, the Initial Price, for the number of Units they wish to acquire. If the Alternate Price is lower than the Initial Price on the Expiration Date, any excess subscription amounts paid by a subscribing holder will be applied towards the purchase of additional Units in the rights offering. Stockholders who fully exercise their basic subscription rights will be entitled to subscribe for additional Units that are not purchased by other stockholders, on a pro rata basis and subject to availability.
A registration statement, as amended, relating to the Units was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and declared effective on May 8, 2020. A prospectus relating to the offering was filed with the SEC on May 14, 2020 and is available on the SEC’s website.
