Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On February 26, 2014, WidePoint Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with B. Riley & Co., LLC (the “Underwriter”) relating to an underwritten public offering of 7,876,497 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per Share (the “Offering”). All of the Shares are being sold by the Company. The price to the public is $1.38 per Share, and the Underwriter has agreed to purchase the Shares from the Company pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement at a price of $1.2972 per Share. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company has granted the Underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional 1,181,475 shares of common stock on the same terms within 30 days from the date of the Underwriting Agreement to cover over-allotments, if any. The net proceeds from the sale of the Shares, after deducting the Underwriters’ discount and other offering expenses, are expected to be approximately $10.0 million.

 

The Offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-193250) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and declared effective on February 5, 2014. A prospectus supplement relating to the Offering has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The closing of the Offering is expected to take place on or about February 28, 2014, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

 

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and agreements by the Company, and customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), other obligations of the parties, and termination provisions.

 

The Underwriting Agreement is attached hereto as an exhibit to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of the Underwriting Agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Underwriting Agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Underwriting Agreement.

 

A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the material terms of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
