Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Agreement and Plan of Merger

On October 18, 2022, Ayala Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Ayala”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Advaxis, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Advaxis”), and Doe Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Advaxis (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into Ayala, with Ayala as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Advaxis (the “Merger” and, collectively with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions”). As a result of the Merger, Advaxis will be renamed “Ayala Pharmaceuticals, Inc.”

The Merger Agreement provides, among other things, that on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein: (i) each share of the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Ayala (the “Ayala Common Stock”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger shall be automatically converted into the right to receive 0.1874 shares (as such amount may be adjusted as provided in the Merger Agreement, the “Exchange Ratio”) of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of Advaxis (the “Advaxis Common Stock”), (iii) each outstanding option to purchase shares of the Ayala Common Stock (each, an “Ayala Option”) will be substituted and converted automatically into an option (each, an “Advaxis Replacement Option”) to purchase the number of shares of Advaxis Common Stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying (a) the number of shares of Ayala Common Stock subject such Ayala Option immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, by (b) the Exchange Ratio, with any fractional shares rounded down to the nearest whole share, with each such Advaxis Replacement Option to have an exercise price per share of Advaxis Common Stock equal to (x) the per share exercise price for the shares of Ayala Common Stock subject to the corresponding Ayala Option immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, divided by (y) the Exchange Ratio, rounded up to the nearest whole cent, and (iv) each restricted stock unit of Ayala (each, an “Ayala RSU”) outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, whether or not vested or issuable, will be substituted and converted automatically into a restricted stock unit award of Advaxis with respect to a number of shares of Advaxis Common Stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the total number of shares of Ayala Common Stock subject to such Ayala RSU immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger by (ii) the Exchange Ratio, with any fractional shares rounded down to the nearest whole share.

Upon completion of the Merger, Ayala stockholders will own approximately 62.5 % of the combined company’s outstanding common stock and Advaxis stockholders will own approximately 37.5%, subject to the terms of the Merger Agreement. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Merger and Advaxis will pay cash in lieu of any such fractional shares. The Merger is intended to qualify for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a tax-free reorganization under the provisions of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

Consummation of the Merger is subject to certain closing conditions, including, among other things, (i) approval of the Merger Agreement and the Transactions by the stockholders of Ayala (the “Ayala Stockholder Approval”); (ii) the effectiveness of a registration statement on Form S-4 filed by Advaxis registering the shares of Advaxis Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Merger; (iii) receipt of all required state securities or “blue sky” authorizations for the issuance of such shares of Advaxis Common Stock, except for such authorizations the lack of receipt of which would not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse impact on any of the parties to the Merger Agreement or their respective affiliates; (iv) the absence of any law or judgment of a governmental entity of competent jurisdiction that is in effect and restrains, enjoins, or otherwise prohibits consummation of the Merger; (v) the absence of a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or results of operations of, respectively, (a) Ayala and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole or (b) Advaxis and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole; (vi) the accuracy of Ayala’s and Advaxis’s representations and warranties, subject to specified materiality qualifications; (vii) compliance by Ayala and Advaxis with its respective covenants in the Merger Agreement in all material respects; and (viii) delivery of customary closing documents, including a customary officer certificate from Ayala and Advaxis.

The Merger Agreement and the consummation of the Transactions have been unanimously approved by the Ayala board of directors, and the Ayala board of directors has resolved to recommend the adoption of the Merger Agreement and the Transactions by the stockholders of Ayala. Ayala and Advaxis have each agreed not to solicit alternative transactions, subject to customary exceptions, including among others, the Ayala board of directors could change its


recommendation to the stockholders of Ayala regarding the Merger if they determine that an unsolicited acquisition proposal from a third party constitutes a Company Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement). Ayala and Advaxis have each agreed, among other things, subject to certain exceptions, not to, directly or indirectly, (1) solicit, initiate, induce, encourage, or facilitate, any inquiries or the making of any alternative proposal or offer for specified alternative transactions, (2) participate in any discussions or negotiations or cooperate in any way regarding such an alternative proposal or offer, (3) provide any non-public information or data concerning itself or any of its subsidiaries in connection with such an alternative proposal or offer or for the purpose of soliciting, initiating, inducing, encouraging or facilitating such an alternative proposal or offer, (4) enter into any binding or nonbinding agreement with respect to such an alternative proposal or offer, (5) adopt, approve or recommend such an alternative proposal or offer, or take any action or exempt any person from the restriction on business combinations or any similar provision contained in applicable takeover laws or its organizational or other governing documents, or (6) resolve, publicly propose or agree to do any of the foregoing.

The Merger Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants by Ayala and Advaxis that are customary for a transaction of this nature, including among others, the covenant regarding the conduct of their respective businesses during the pendency of the Transactions, public disclosures and the use of reasonable best efforts to make all filings required by governmental entities following the execution of the Merger Agreement. In addition, certain covenants require each of the parties to use, subject to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, their reasonable best efforts to cause the Merger to be consummated as promptly as practicable. Subject to certain exceptions, the Merger Agreement also requires Ayala to call and hold a stockholders’ meeting and requires the board of directors of Ayala to recommend approval of the Merger.

The Merger Agreement contains customary termination rights for both Ayala and Advaxis, including the right of Ayala or Advaxis to terminate the Merger Agreement (i) if the Merger has not been consummated by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on April 18, 2023, or (ii) to accept a Company Superior Proposal or a Parent Superior Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), as applicable, after complying with certain requirements.

The Merger Agreement provides that the payment of a $600,000 termination fee will be payable:

 

(i)

by Ayala to Advaxis if (a) prior to Ayala’s shareholders adopting the Merger Agreement, Advaxis terminates the Merger Agreement due to (I) the board of directors of Ayala changing its recommendation to the stockholders regarding the Merger, (II) Ayala’s failure to include the recommendation of the Ayala board of directors in the proxy/prospectus to be prepared in connection with the Merger, (III) Ayala’s entry into a competing acquisition proposal or (IV) Ayala’s material breach or failure to perform in any material respect its obligations with respect to its non-solicitation covenant; (b) prior to Ayala’s shareholders adopting the Merger Agreement, Ayala terminates the Merger Agreement due to the board of directors of Ayala’s authorization, to the extent permitted by its non-solicitation covenant, of Ayala’s entry into a Company Superior Proposal and, concurrently with Ayala’s termination of the Merger Agreement, Ayala enters into such Company Superior Proposal; or (c) after the date of the Merger Agreement, (I) a competing acquisition proposal is made to Ayala and becomes publicly known prior to the meeting of Ayala shareholders to adopt the Merger Agreement and such proposal is not withdrawn at the time of such meeting, (II) the Merger Agreement is terminated by Ayala or Advaxis due to a failure to obtain the consent of the shareholders of Ayala to adopt the Merger Agreement or by Advaxis due to Ayala’s failure to satisfy the condition to the Merger regarding the accuracy of Ayala’s representations and warranties or compliance with its covenants and (III) within 12 months after such termination, Ayala enters into an acquisition agreement pursuant to a competing acquisition offer or consummates a competing acquisition offer; or

 

(ii)

by Advaxis to Ayala if (a) prior to Ayala’s shareholders adopting the Merger Agreement, Ayala terminates the Merger Agreement due to (I) Advaxis’s entry into a competing acquisition proposal or (II) Advaxis’s material breach or failure to perform in any material respect its obligations with respect to its non-solicitation covenant; or (b) prior to Ayala’s shareholders adopting the Merger Agreement, Advaxis terminates the Merger Agreement due to the board of directors of Advaxis’s authorization, to the extent permitted by its non-solicitation covenant, of Advaxis’s entry into a Parent Superior Proposal and, concurrently with Advaxis’s termination of the Merger Agreement, Advaxis enters into such Parent Superior Proposal.


Immediately after the effective time of the Merger, the board of directors of the combined company is expected to consist of seven members, with two such members designated by Advaxis, such Advaxis designees being Roni A. Appel and Samir N. Khleif, M.D., and five such members designated by Ayala, such Ayala designees being Kenneth A. Berlin, Vered Bisker-Leib, Ph.D., Murray A. Goldberg, David Sidransky, M.D. and Robert Spiegel, M.D., and the executive officers of the combined company will be Kenneth A. Berlin, Chief Executive Officer, Andres A. Gutierrez, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer, and Igor Gitelman, Chief Financial Officer.

Closing of the Merger is expected to occur during the first quarter of 2023. The representations, warranties, agreements and covenants of the parties set forth in the Merger Agreement will terminate at the Closing.

The Merger Agreement has been included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Ayala, Advaxis or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement were made by the parties thereto only for purposes of the Merger Agreement and as of specific dates as set forth therein; were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Merger Agreement; may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties in connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement; may have been made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Merger Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts; and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of Ayala, Advaxis or Merger Sub or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Merger Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in Ayala’s or Advaxis’s public disclosures.

Voting and Support Agreements

The Voting Agreements provide that, in the event of a Company Change in Recommendation (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the number of shares of capital stock of Ayala subject to the Voting Agreements shall only be 30% of the total current outstanding voting power of Ayala, and the number of shares of capital stock of Ayala of each of Israel Biotech Fund I, L.P. and aMoon Growth Fund Limited Partnership subject to the Voting Agreements shall be reduced proportionately based on the number of shares of capital stock of Ayala subject thereto.

The foregoing summary of the Voting Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Voting Agreements, copies of which are attached as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.

(“Ayala-Oncology”) entered into a letter agreement with each of Dr. Mamluk and Mr. Maimon, and Ayala entered into a letter agreement with Gary Gordon, Chief Medical Officer of Ayala (collectively, the “Letter Agreements”). The Letter Agreements provide that Dr. Mamluk and Mr. Maimon will terminate employment with Ayala-Oncology as of immediately following the closing of the Merger. The Letter Agreement with Dr. Gordon addresses any termination of his employment by Ayala without “cause” or by Dr. Gordon for “justified reason”, as each term is defined in Dr. Gordon’s employment agreement, within the 12-month period following the Merger and provides that no demotion in position or reduction in duties or authority in connection with the Merger that is agreed to by Dr. Gordon will provide a basis for a Justified Reason resignation.

Pursuant to the Letter Agreements and consistent with their respective employment agreements with Ayala or Ayala-Oncology, as applicable, following their termination of employment, each of Dr. Mamluk, Mr. Maimon and Dr. Gordon will receive a cash severance payment in the amount of the sum of their respective annual base salary and target annual bonus amount, which shall be paid in equal installment payments in accordance with Ayala’s normal payroll practices over a 12-month period, and accelerated vesting of all unvested equity awards they hold. Receipt of the severance benefits is conditioned upon the recipient’s execution and non-revocation of a waiver and release in favor of Ayala and its affiliates.

Each of Dr. Mamluk, Mr. Maimon and Dr. Gordon has further agreed, during a 12-month period following the closing of the Merger, not to transfer any shares of Ayala or Advaxis Common Stock received in connection with their accelerated unvested equity awards, other than for the payment of any taxes or exercise price associated with the exercise, vesting or settlement of the accelerated awards.

The foregoing description of the Letter Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Letter Agreements, copies of which are attached as Exhibits 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5 to this Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 5.02 by reference.
