|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement|
On June 29, 2011, Bioject Medical Technologies, Inc. (Bioject) entered into a Convertible Note Purchase and Warrant Agreement (the Agreement) with Al Hansen, Mark Logomasini, Ed Flynn, and Ralph Makar (together, the Purchasers) pursuant to which Bioject issued Convertible Promissory Notes (the Notes) and warrants to purchase Common Stock (the Warrants). Pursuant to the Agreement, Bioject sold Notes in the principal amount of $75,000 to each of Messrs. Hansen and Logomasini, $50,000 to Mr. Flynn, and $25,000 to Mr. Makar. Each of Messrs. Flynn, Hansen, Logomasini, and Makar is a director of Bioject; Mr. Makar is also Biojects Chief Executive Officer. In addition, Mr. Hansen is a managing director of Signet Health Partners, an affiliate of one of Biojects principal shareholders, Life Sciences Opportunities Fund II, L.P., Life Sciences Opportunities Fund II (Institutional), L.P.
The Notes bear interest at the rate of 10% per year with all principal and interest due December 29, 2011, which maturity date may be extended to June 28, 2012 at the option of the holder, and may not be prepaid without the written consent of the holders of a majority in interest of the Notes. The Notes are convertible at any time by the Purchasers into Biojects common stock at the rate of $0.19 per share, or, in the case of a qualified financing, into the securities sold in the financing at a price equal to the financing price.
The number of shares for which each Warrant is exercisable automatically increases if the holder exercises his option to extend the maturity date of his Note. If no holder exercises his option to extend the maturity date of his Note, the Warrants will be exercisable for an aggregate of 118,422 shares of Biojects common stock. If all holders exercise their options to extend the maturity date of their Notes, the Warrants will be exercisable for an aggregate of 236,844 shares of Biojects common stock. The Warrants exercise price is $0.19 per share. Each Warrant is immediately exercisable and expires three years from the date of issuance.
Bioject also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with each Purchaser granting piggy-back registration rights.
