ATLANTA, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Virtual Cloud Technologies, Inc. (“AVCtechnologies”) (Nasdaq: AVCT) (the “Company”) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement for a registered direct offering with an institutional investor of 2,500,000 shares of its common stock at a purchase price of $2.00 per share and a Series B Warrant to purchase an additional 2,500,000 shares, for total gross proceeds of $5.0 million, before payment of commissions and expenses. AVCtechnologies would receive an additional $5.0 million in gross proceeds if the Series B Warrant is exercised in full. The Series B Warrant has an exercise price of $2.00 per share, is exercisable on the date of issuance and expires two years from the date of issuance. Commencing ten trading days after the issuance of the Series B Warrant, the Company may force the investor to exercise its Series B Warrant in the event shares of the Company’s common stock trade at or above $2.40/share for a period of 5 consecutive trading days, subject to certain conditions, including equity conditions.
In a concurrent private placement, for each share of common stock purchased by the institutional investor in the registered direct offering or pursuant to the Series B Warrant, the institutional investor will receive from the Company an unregistered Series A Warrant to purchase one share of common stock. Initially, the Series A Warrant will be exercisable for 2,500,000 shares of common stock, but upon any exercise of the Series B Warrant, the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Series A Warrant will be increased by the number of shares of the Company’s common stock issued upon exercise of the Series B Warrant.
The Series A Warrants have an exercise price of $2.00 per share, are exercisable on the date of issuance, and expire five years from the date of issuance.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds of approximately $4.5 million from this offering for reduction of debt and working capital.
