In January 2012, we entered into a placement agent agreement with Rodman & Renshaw, pursuant to which Rodman & Renshaw agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to arrange for the sale of our registered securities. We agreed to pay Rodman & Renshaw an aggregate fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds received in the Offering and agreed to customary representations, warranties, and indemnification by us.
In February 2012, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain purchasers, arranged by Rodman & Renshaw, pursuant to which we sold to the Purchasers in a registered offering 6,415,000 shares of our common stock and Warrants to purchase up to 3,207,500 shares of common stock. The securities were sold in units, consisting of one share of common stock and a Warrant to purchase 0.5 of a share of common stock, at a price of $0.50 per unit, for gross proceeds of $3,207,500. The Offering closed on February 7, 2012. The Warrants are exercisable at any time on or after August 7, 2012, six months following their issuance. After deducting the placement agent fee and our estimated offering expenses (and excluding any potential future proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants) the net proceeds from the Offering were approximately $2.8 million.
Each Warrant has an exercise price of $0.70 per share, for total potential additional proceeds to us of up to $2,245,250 if the Warrants are exercised in full. The Warrants are exercisable at any time on or after August 7, 2012, the six-month anniversary of the closing date, and have a five-year term. The Warrants are exercisable for cash or, solely in the absence of an effective registration statement, by cashless exercise. The exercise price of the Warrants is subject to adjustment in the case of stock splits, stock dividends, combinations of shares and similar recapitalization transactions, and also upon any distributions to Company shareholders, business combinations, sale of substantially all assets and other fundamental transactions. The exercise of the Warrants is subject to certain beneficial ownership and other limitations set forth in the Warrants. As of June 30, 2012, none of the Warrants were exercisable and all remain outstanding. There are no assurances that any of the Warrants will be exercised or that we will receive any cash proceeds from any such exercise.
