Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive
On February 27, 2012, Cono Italiano, Inc. (the
“Company”) finalized a committed equity facility (the “Equity Facility”) with TCA Global Credit Master
Fund, LP, a Cayman Islands limited partnership (“TCA”), whereby the parties entered into (i) a committed equity facility
agreement (the “Equity Agreement”) and (ii) a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”).
Committed Equity Facility Agreement
On February 27, 2012, the Company entered into
the Equity Agreement with TCA. Pursuant to the terms of the Equity Agreement, for a period of twenty-four (24) months commencing
on the date of effectiveness of the Registration Statement (as defined below), TCA shall commit to purchase up to $1,500,000 of
the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), pursuant to Advances (as defined below),
covering the Registrable Securities (as defined below). The purchase price of the Shares under the Equity Agreement is equal to
ninety-five percent (95%) of the lowest daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the five
(5) consecutive trading days after the Company delivers to TCA an Advance notice in writing requiring TCA to advance funds (an
“Advance”) to the Company, subject to the terms of the Equity Agreement.
The “Registrable Securities” include
(i) the Shares; and (ii) any securities issued or issuable with respect to the Shares by way of exchange, stock dividend or stock
split or in connection with a combination of shares, recapitalization, merger, consolidation or other reorganization or otherwise.
As further consideration for TCA entering into
and structuring the Equity Facility, the Company shall pay to TCA a fee by issuing to TCA that number of shares of the Company’s
common stock that equal a dollar amount of fifty-two thousand and five hundred dollars ($52,500) (the “Facility Fee Shares”).
It is the intention of the Company and TCA that the value of the Facility Fee Shares shall equal $52,500. In the event the value
of the Facility Fee Shares issued to TCA does not equal $52,500 after a nine month evaluation date, the Equity Agreement provides
for an adjustment provision allowing for necessary action (either the issuance of additional shares to TCA or the return of shares
previously issued to TCA to the Company’s treasury) to adjust the number of Facility Fee Shares issued.
Registration Rights Agreement
On February 27, 2012, the Company entered into
the Registration Rights Agreement with TCA. Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is obligated
to file a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the
“SEC’) to cover the Registrable Securities by April 12, 2012. The Company must use its commercially reasonable efforts
to cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC by a date that is no later than May 28, 2012.
The above descriptions of the Equity Agreement
and Registration Rights Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the full text of the document
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
In addition, the Company is relying on an exemption
from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for the private placement of our securities under
the Equity Agreement pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. The transaction
does not involve a public offering, TCA is an “accredited investor” and/or qualified institutional buyer and TCA has
access to information about us and its investment.
Pursuant to the requirements of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this Current Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned
hereunto duly authorized.
