Loan Agreements

 

On December 28, 2022, Altamira Therapeutics Ltd. (the “Company”) entered into two loan agreements with separate private investors (the “Private Lenders”), pursuant to which the Private Lenders loaned the Company an aggregate of CHF 350,000.00 (the “December 2022 Loan Agreements”), collectively, which loans bear interest at the rate of 5% per annum and mature as of May 30, 2023. The Company agreed to grant to the Private Lenders warrants to purchase an aggregate of 47,180 of the Company’s common shares. Such warrants will be exercisable immediately at an exercise price of CHF 4.4512 per share, may be exercised up to five years from the date of issuance and may be exercised on a cashless basis in certain circumstances specified therein. The December 2022 Loan Agreements and related warrants used the same form of agreement and warrant as the previously disclosed loan agreement dated September 9, 2022, among the Company, FiveT Investment Management Ltd., Dominik Lysek and Thomas Meyer, the Company’s CEO, and related warrants, other than the applicable principal amount, maturity date and warrant exercise price and amount.

 

FiveT Loan Amendment

 

On February 4, 2022, the Company entered into a convertible loan agreement (the “FiveT Loan”) with FiveT Investment Management Ltd., or FiveT IM, an affiliate of FiveT Capital Holding Ltd., or FiveT, pursuant to which FiveT IM agreed to loan to the Company CHF 5,000,000, which loan bears interest at the rate of 10% per annum. On January 26, 2023, the Company and FiveT IM entered into an amendment to the FiveT Loan (the “FiveT Loan Amendment”), which amendment (i) extends the maturity date of the FiveT Loan to March 15, 2023; (ii) provides that the Company may repay amounts owed under the FiveT Loan prior to maturity with no penalty or premium; (iii) provides that in the event of a public or private offering (a “Qualifying Offering”) by the Company of common shares (other than through an equity line or at-the-market program), the Company will make a partial repayment, upon the closing of the offering, of the principal amount of the FiveT Loan comprised of (A) $1,000,000 in cash and (B) newly issued common shares in an amount equaling 9.9% of the total outstanding common shares post-issuance and after giving effect to such offering, with such common shares being valued for purposes of such repayment at the offering price per common share in such offering (the “Qualifying Offering Price”); and (iv) provides that upon the closing of such offering, assuming the Company has sufficient authorized and unissued common shares, the Company shall have the option to cause FiveT IM to convert the remaining outstanding amount of the FiveT Loan after the repayment described in (iii) above into a pre-funded warrant (the “Pre-Funded Warrant”), having an exercise price of CHF 0.01 per common share, giving FiveT IM the right to purchase a number of common shares equal to (A) the total remaining outstanding amount of the FiveT Loan divided by (B) the Qualifying Offering Price less CHF 0.01. The Pre-Funded Warrants will provide that until February 21, 2024, FiveT IM may cause the Company to redeem for cash all or portions of the Pre-Funded Warrant using up to 40% of the cash proceeds from certain out-licensing or divestiture transactions to the extent completed by the Company, with the amount of the Pre-Funded Warrant being redeemed equal to (A) the desired redemption amount divided by (B) the Qualifying Offering Price less CHF 0.01.

 

Special General Meeting of Shareholders

 

The Board of Directors of Altamira Therapeutics Ltd. has decided to call a Special General Meeting of Shareholders (“Special General Meeting”) in order to propose an increase in the authorized share capital of the Company from CHF 1,400,000 divided into 5,000,000 common shares of CHF 0.20 each and 20,000,000 preference shares of CHF 0.02 each to CHF 5,400,000 divided into 25,000,000 common shares of CHF 0.20 each and 20,000,000 preference shares of CHF 0.02 each, by the creation of an additional 20,000,000 common shares of CHF 0.20 each ranking pari-passu with the existing common shares of the Company. The proposed modification of the amount of the authorized share capital shall increase the Company’s flexibility for corporate finance purposes and does not imply or constitute any immediate increase in the amount of shares outstanding.

 

The Special General Meeting will be held on February 17, 2023, 8:30 AM local Bermuda time at Clarendon House, 2 Church Street, Hamilton HM 11, Bermuda.
