|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On August 12, 2021, ShiftPixy, Inc., a Wyoming corporation (the “Company”), entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with a large institutional investor (the “Purchaser”) to amend the securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated May 13, 2021, the form of which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 17, 2021, to (i) permit the issuance of the Preferred Options described below, (ii) extend the Company’s restriction to issue common stock or common stock equivalents to 180 days following the Effective Date (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), subject to certain exceptions, and (iii) grant the Purchaser the right to purchase up to 50% of the Company’s securities offered pursuant to any private placement transaction or public offering registered with the SEC that is announced or consummated during the eighteen month period commencing May 13, 2021. The Letter Agreement also amends the lock-up agreement, dated as of May 13, 2021 (the “Lock-Up Agreement”), with Scott W. Absher, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, which restricts the ability of Mr. Absher to sell or transfer any shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), for 90 days following the Effective Date, subject to certain exceptions, to permit certain pledge transactions involving the Common Stock.
The foregoing description of the Letter Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Letter Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.
|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
On August 13, 2021, the Company granted 12,500,000 options (the “Preferred Options”) to purchase shares of the Company’s preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”), for $0.0001 per share to Mr. Absher. Each Preferred Option is exercisable for a period of twenty-four months upon (i) the acquisition of a Controlling Interest (as defined below) in the Company by any single shareholder or group of shareholders acting in concert, other than Mr. Absher or J. Stephen Holmes, a co-founder of the Company, or (ii) the announcement of (x) any proposed merger, consolidation, or business combination in which the Common Stock is changed or exchanged, or (y) any sale or distribution of at least 50% of the Company’s assets or earning power, other than through a reincorporation. Each share of Preferred Stock is convertible into Common Stock on a one-for-one basis. “Controlling Interest” means the ownership or control of outstanding voting shares of the Company sufficient to enable the acquiring person, directly or indirectly and individually or in concert with others, to exercise one-fifth or more of all the voting power of the Company in the election of directors or any other business matter on which shareholders have the right to vote under the Wyoming Business Corporation Act. As previously disclosed, the Company intended to make an additional grant to Mr. Absher based on the number of shares of Common Stock held by Mr. Absher in September 2016.
The Preferred Options were issued pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) provided by Section 4(a)(2) and/or Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act.
