Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On December 9, 2022, NextPlat Corp (the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional and accredited investors (the “Investors”) for the sale by the Company in a private placement of 4,575,429 units (each, a “Unit”), each Unit consisting of (i) one share of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), and (ii) one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock (each, a “Warrant”). The offering price of the Units was $1.75 per Unit. The Warrants included in the Units are exercisable at a price of $1.75 per share and expire three years from the date of issuance.


The closing of the offering is expected to take place on or before December 14, 2022, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. In connection with the Purchase Agreement, the Investors subscribed for, and the Company will receive gross proceeds of, approximately $8.0 million for the Units. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the offering for working capital needs, potential acquisitions, joint ventures, and ongoing business transition activities.


In connection with the offering, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Company will prepare and file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a registration statement to register for resale the shares of Common Stock sold in the offering and the shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrants, within 15 calendar days and to use its best efforts to have the registration statement declared effective as promptly as practical thereafter.


The securities issued in the offering have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and until so registered the securities may not be offered or sold absent registration or availability of an applicable exemption from registration.


On December 9, 2022, the Company entered into placement agency agreement (the “Placement Agency Agreement”) with Dawson James Securities, Inc. (“Dawson James”) pursuant to which Dawson James agreed to serve as lead or managing placement agent on a best efforts, agency basis in connection with the private placement of the Units. The Company has agreed to pay Dawson James a placement agent fee of 6% of the gross proceeds received in the private placement and 3% on all proceeds from officers and directors including any directed orders from the Company. As additional compensation under the Placement Agency Agreement, the Company will issue Dawson James warrants (the “Placement Agent Warrants”) to purchase up to 549,051 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $1.75 per share. The Placement Agent Warrants are exercisable at any time and from time to time during the three-year period commencing on the six month anniversary of the closing date. The Company will also reimburse Dawson for up to $100,000 for its legal and due diligence expenses.





The Purchase Agreement and the Placement Agency Agreement contain customary representations, warranties and covenants by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company, the Investors and Dawson, including for liabilities under the Securities Act, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement and Placement Agent Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreements and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreements, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties.


The foregoing description of the material terms of the Placement Agency Agreement, Purchase Agreement, Warrant, Placement Agent Warrant, and Registration Rights Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Placement Agency Agreement, Purchase Agreement, Warrant, Placement Agent Warrant, and Registration Rights Agreement, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 1.1, 10.1, 4.1, 4.2, and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.


Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


Pursuant to the offering described in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, which description is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02 in its entirety, the Company will sell the shares of Common Stock and Warrants to “accredited investors,” as that term is defined in the Securities Act, in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act and corresponding provisions of state securities or “blue sky” laws. The Investors represented that they are acquiring the Units for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof. Accordingly, the securities comprising the Units have not been registered under the Securities Act and such securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.
