LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SRAX (Nasdaq: SRAX), an Internet advertising and technology platform company that provides tools to automate the digital advertising market, announced it entered into a definitive securities purchase agreement with certain institutional and accredited investors for the purchase and sale of up to an aggregate of $3.72 million principal amount Secured Convertible Debentures and five year Series A Warrants representing the right to acquire up to 1,156,667 shares of Class A common stock in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Debentures are secured by a second position security interest in the Company's accounts receivable and a first position security interest in the balance of its assets, and the Company is subject to continued compliance with certain financial covenants. The Debenture and Warrants are initially exercisable at $3.00 per share.
"This capital infusion satisfies certain current obligations, eliminates uncertainty of the variable priced financial instrument and provides us working capital to continue to grow the business," stated Christopher Miglino, Chief Executive Officer of SRAX. "We believe we are now on more solid financial footing and continue to focus on serving our customers with the most effective platform offerings for their marketing needs."
SRAX expects to use the net proceeds to satisfy a $2.5 million put obligation under Series B Warrants issued to investors in a registered direct offering the Company conducted in January 2017 and to satisfy other current obligations and for working capital. After payment of the put obligation the Series B Warrants will be terminated and no longer outstanding.
The Company estimates net proceeds from the offering to be approximately $3.5 million after deducting placement agent fees, legal fees and other estimated offering expenses. The Debentures will bear interest at a rate of 12.5% per year, payable quarterly. The Debentures will mature on April 21, 2020, unless earlier redeemed or converted. The Debentures are convertible at the option of the holder into shares of the Company's Class A common stock at an initial conversion price of $3.00 per share, subject to adjustment.
Chardan Capital, LLC and Noble Capital Markets, Inc. acted as co-placement agents for this offering.
