AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2021 / Cipherloc Corporation (OTCQB:CLOK) ("CipherLoc"), a developer of advanced encryption technology, today announced entry into a Securities Purchase Agreement with gross proceeds to the Company expected to be approximately $6.4 million before deducting offering expenses payable by the Company.
Said David Chasteen, Chief Executive Officer, "We believe that post-quantum encryption will be one of the largest and most critical technology migrations of the next several years. We intend to remain true to our lean operating approach, but will now have the capital resources to build out Cipherloc's organization and further increase our commercialization activities. This capital is particularly important in light of our recent announcements and additional progress with key partners as we advance the application of our quantum resistant and FIPS 140-2 certified Polymorphic Encryption Core (PEC) in multiple potential applications."
The offering equates to approximately 35.8 million Shares of common stock and Warrants to purchase 35.8 million shares of common stock in the Company. Cipherloc had previously announced the return of more than 14.5 million shares through settlements with former executives and their estates in 2020 and 2021.
The Shares and Warrants were sold at a price of $0.18 per combined Share and Warrant, which was equal to 80% of the closing sales price of the Company's common stock on March 30, 2021, which was the last trading day prior to the entry into the Purchase Agreement. The Warrants are good for a term of five years and have an exercise price of $0.36 per Share.
Paulson Investment Company, LLC (the "Placement Agent"), served as placement agent for the Offering.
In connection with the Offering, each of Cipherloc's officers and directors entered into Lock-Up Agreements whereby they agreed not to sell, offer, or transfer, any of their securities which they hold for 180 days after the end of the Offering, subject to customary exceptions.
Financial terms and additional information regarding the funding transactions are available in Cipherloc's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 8, 2021, and available at www.sec.gov.
