Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 26, 2018, CytoDyn Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company issued a convertible promissory note (the “Note”) to an institutional accredited investor (the “Investor”) in the initial principal amount of $5.7 million. The Investor gave consideration of $5.0 million, reflecting original issue discount of $0.6 million and expenses payable by the Company of $0.1 million. The Company anticipates to use the proceeds for general working capital and to fund clinical trials.

The Note is the general unsecured obligation of the Company and ranks pari passu with all other creditors of the Company. Interest accrues on the outstanding balance of the Note at 10% per annum. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, interest accrues at the lesser of 22% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. The Note contains customary default provisions, including provisions for potential acceleration.

The Investor may convert all or any part the outstanding balance of the Note into shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at an initial conversion price of $0.55 per share, at any time after six months from the issue date upon five trading days’ notice, subject to certain adjustments and ownership limitations specified in the Note. The Note provides for liquidated damages upon failure to deliver Common Stock within specified timeframes.

The Investor may redeem any portion of the Note, at any time after six months from the issue date upon five trading days’ notice, subject to a maximum monthly redemption amount of $350,000. The Company may prepay the outstanding balance of the Note, in part or in full, at a 15% premium to par value, at any time upon five trading days’ notice.

The Company relied on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 in connection with the issuance and sale of the Note and underlying shares of Common Stock.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Note and the Securities Purchase Agreement, a copy of each of which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 and Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and each of which is incorporated herein by reference.
