Item 1.01 Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 28, 2011, MagneGas Corporation (the “Company”) completed a closing ( the “Initial Closing”) under a private offering (the “Offering”), of investment units (each, a “Unit” and collectively, the “Units”), each consisting of one (1) share of common stock and a five-year warrant to purchase one (1) share of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $0.30 per share (the “Warrants”).  An aggregate of 16,875,000 Units were sold in the Initial Closing for gross proceeds to the Company of $2,700,000, before deducting placement agent fees and other offering expenses.  In connection with the sale of the Units in the Initial Closing, the Company issued 16,875,000 shares of its common stock (the “Shares”) and Warrants to acquire 16,875,000 shares of its common stock to the investors in the Initial Closing (the “Purchasers”). The Company intends to have a second closing (the “Second Closing”) within seven (7) days of the Initial Closing to complete the Offering.

In connection with the Offering, the Company and each of the Purchasers entered into a Common Stock and Warrant Purchase Agreement evidencing such Purchaser’s investment (collectively, the “Purchase Agreement”). As per the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company granted registration rights to the Purchasers. The Company will file a registration statement (“Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) to register the Shares and the shares of common stock underlying the Warrants within 45 days after the Initial Closing and have it declared effective within 90 days after the Initial Closing or 120 days in the event of a full review of the Registration Statement by the Commission (“Required Effective Date”).

If the Registration Statement is not declared effective by the Required Effective Date, the Company is required to pay partial liquidated damages to each Purchaser in the amount equal to 1% of such Purchaser’s subscription amount subscribed for by such Purchaser for each 30-day period for which the Company is not compliance, subject to a cap of six percent (6%) of such Purchaser’s subscription amount.

Warrants

The Warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the original issue date.  The exercise price for the Warrants is $0.30.  The exercise price of the Warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and dilutive issuances.

The foregoing descriptions of the terms of the form of Purchase Agreement and the form of Warrant are qualified in their entirety by reference to the provisions of the agreements filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 4.1 respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”), which are incorporated by reference herein.
 
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

Reference is made to the disclosure set forth under Items 1.01 of this Report, which disclosure is incorporated herein by reference.

The sale of the Units and the issuance of the Shares and the Warrants were offered and sold in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act (“Regulation D”) and/or Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act (“Regulation S”).  We made this determination based on the representations of each Purchaser which included, in pertinent part, that each such Purchaser was (a) an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D, (b) a “qualified institutional buyer” within the meaning of Rule 144A under the Securities Act or (c) not a “U.S. person” as that term is defined in Rule 902(k) of Regulation S and upon such further representations from each Purchaser that (i) such Purchaser is acquiring the securities for his, her or its own account for investment and not for the account of any other person and not with a view to or for distribution, assignment or resale in connection with any distribution within the meaning of the Securities Act, (ii) the Purchaser agrees not to sell or otherwise transfer the purchased shares unless they are registered under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or an exemption or exemptions from such registration are available, (iii) the Purchaser has knowledge and experience in financial and business matters such that he, she or it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in us, (iv) the Purchaser had access to all of our documents, records, and books pertaining to the investment and was provided the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers regarding the terms and conditions of the offering and to obtain any additional information which we possessed or were able to acquire without unreasonable effort and expense, and (v) the Purchaser has no need for the liquidity in its investment in us and could afford the complete loss of such investment. In addition, there was no general solicitation or advertising for securities issued in reliance upon Regulation D.
