Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Registered Direct Offering


On April 3, 2023, Oncocyte Corporation (“we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company” or “Oncocyte”), entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with several institutional and accredited investors, including Broadwood Partners, L.P., the Company’s largest shareholder, and certain members of the Company’s board of directors (and certain of their affiliated parties), which provides for the sale and issuance by the Company of an aggregate of 45,494,198 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, no par value (the “Common Stock”) at an offering price of: (i) $0.30168 to investors who are not considered to be “insiders” of the Company pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rules (“Insiders”), which amount reflects the average closing price of the Common Stock on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) during the five trading day period immediately prior to pricing, and (ii) $0.35440 to Insiders, which amount reflects the final closing price of the Common Stock on Nasdaq on the last trading day immediately prior to pricing (the “Registered Direct Offering”).


The Company previously entered into a Financial Advisory Agreement with The Special Equities Group, pursuant to which the Company agreed to pay an advisory fee in an amount of $250,000 in connection with the consummation of the Registered Direct Offering (the “Advisory Fee”).


The net proceeds from the Registered Direct Offering will be approximately $13.5 million, after deducting the Advisory Fee and other estimated offering expenses payable by the Company (the “Net Proceeds”). The Company intends to use approximately $1.1 million of the Net Proceeds to immediately redeem an aggregate of 1,064 shares of its Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred”) and may thereafter elect to redeem additional shares of Series A Preferred. The Company intends to use the remaining Net Proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including to promote the development and commercialization of VitaGraft™, DetermaIO™ and DetermaCNI™.


The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, conditions to closing and termination provisions. The Purchase Agreement also includes customary indemnification obligations of the Company.


The Registered Direct Offering is being conducted as a “takedown” from a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-256650), which was filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 28, 2021, and declared effective on June 8, 2021. A copy of the opinion of Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth, P.C., relating to the validity of the issuance and sale of the Shares in the Registered Direct Offering is attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.


The foregoing description of the terms of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the Form of Purchase Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
