The disclosure in Item 8.01 of this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.

In addition, from December 27, 2018 to June 3, 2019, CytoDyn Inc., a Delaware corporation, (the “Company”), received redemption notices from the holder of the Company’s convertible note issued on June 26, 2018 requesting the redemption of an aggregate of $1,605,000 of the outstanding balance thereof. In satisfaction of the redemption notices, the Company issued 4,217,767 shares of Common Stock to the note holder in accordance with the terms of the convertible note. Following the redemption, the outstanding balance of the convertible note, including accrued but unpaid interest, was approximately $4,635,000. The Company relied upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and upon similar exemptions under applicable state laws, in connection with these redemptions.

Item 8.01

Other Events

Warrant Tender Offer

The Company previously reported its tender offer (the “Warrant Tender Offer”) for certain outstanding series of eligible warrants, offering the holders of such warrants the opportunity to amend and exercise their warrants at a reduced exercise price equal to the lower of (i) their respective existing exercise price (the “Original Exercise Price”) or (ii) $0.40 per share of common stock. As an inducement to holders to participate in the Warrant Tender Offer, the Company offered to issue to participating holders shares of common stock equal to an additional 50% of the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the eligible warrants (collectively, the “Additional Shares”). The Warrant Tender Offer was made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Amend and Exercise Warrants to Purchase Common Stock of CytoDyn Inc., previously mailed to the holders of eligible warrants on May 14, 2019, and which was included in the Company’s Schedule TO-I initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 14, 2019.

At 5:00 P.M. (Eastern time) on June 12, 2019, the offering period and withdrawal rights for the Warrant Tender Offer expired. Upon completion of the Warrant Tender Offer, 368 Original Warrants to purchase up to 22,943,159 shares of common stock had been validly tendered and not withdrawn in the Warrant Tender Offer, for gross cash proceeds to the Company of approximately $9.13 million. Accordingly, an aggregate of 11,471,551 Additional Shares will be issued to participating holders of eligible warrants. Solicitation fees of approximately $820,000 were paid to the solicitation agent in the Warrant Tender Offer.

5,137,289 of the shares of common stock sold to investors in the Warrant Tender Offer were sold pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statements on Form S-3 (File No. 333-223195) declared effective on March 7, 2018, and the prospectuses and prospectus supplements filed thereunder. 34,414,710 shares of common stock, including all of the Additional Shares, were sold to accredited investors in reliance upon the exemption provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D and Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


Dr. Scott A. Kelly validly tendered Original Warrants beneficially owned by him, covering an aggregate of 50,000 shares of Common Stock, and received 25,000 Additional Shares. Additionally, two entities affiliated with Carl Dockery validly tendered Original Warrants beneficially owned by him, covering an aggregate of 1,425,000 shares of Common Stock, and received 712,500 Additional Shares. Dr. Kelly and Mr. Dockery are members of the Company’s board of directors and participated on terms identical to those applicable to other holders of Original Warrants.

Accordingly, the Company is instructing its transfer agent to issue an aggregate of 34,414,710 shares of common stock to participants in the Warrant Tender Offer.
