CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Certain statements in this prospectus may constitute “forward-looking statements” for purposes of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. Words such as “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “seek” and variations and similar words and expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements in this prospectus may include, for example, statements about:

 

 

Our business is subject to risks related to our acquisition of Gray Matters, Inc.

 

Recent, past and future acquisitions and investments could disrupt our business and harm our financial condition and operating results.

 

Our business is subject to risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine.

 

Our operating history and recent and planned changes to our business model make it difficult to evaluate our current business and prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.

 

We have had operating losses in three of each of the last four years, and may not achieve or maintain profitability in the future.

 

If the cybersecurity, Internet of Things (“IoT”), enterprise resource planning (“ERP”), command and control (“C2”), or supply chain management (“SCM”) markets are not receptive to our solutions, our sales will not grow as quickly as anticipated, or at all, and our business, results of operations and financial condition would be harmed.

 

A portion of our revenue is expected to be generated by sales to government entities, which are subject to a number of challenges and risks.

 

We face intense competition and could lose market share to our competitors, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We rely on our management team and other key employees and will need additional personnel to grow our business, and the loss of one or more key employees or our inability to hire, integrate, train and retain qualified personnel, including members for our board of directors, could harm our business.

 

Our business is subject to risks related to the use of blockchain and distributed ledger technology.

 

We are dependent on a few key customer contracts for a significant portion of our future revenue, and a significant reduction in services to one or more of these contracts would reduce our future revenue and harm our anticipated operating results.

 

Our proprietary rights may be difficult to enforce or protect, which could enable others to copy or use aspects of our products or subscriptions without compensating us.

 

Our use of open-source software in our products and subscriptions could negatively affect our ability to sell our products and subscriptions and subject us to possible litigation.

 

We are dependent on information technology, and disruptions, failures or security breaches of our information technology infrastructure could have a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

We depend on computing infrastructure operated by Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), Microsoft, and other third parties to support some of our solutions and customers, and any errors, disruption, performance problems, or failure in their or our operational infrastructure could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

Failure to comply with governmental laws and regulations could harm our business.

 

We are subject to risks associated with our strategic investments, and impairments in the value of our investments could negatively impact our financial results.

 

Our failure to raise additional capital or generate the significant capital necessary to expand our operations and invest in new products and subscriptions could reduce our ability to compete and could harm our business.

 

The requirements of being a public company may strain our resources, divert management’s attention, and affect our ability to attract and retain qualified board members.

 

 
-1-

 

 

If we are not able to maintain and enhance our brand and our reputation as a provider of high-quality security solutions and services, our business and results of operations may be adversely affected.

 

Our business is subject to risks inherent in and unique to government contracting.

 

Failure to comply with domestic and foreign privacy laws and regulations could harm our business.

 

These forward-looking statements are based on information available as of the date of this prospectus and current expectations, forecasts and assumptions, and involve a number of judgments, risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any subsequent date, and we do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

 

As a result of a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, our actual results or performance may be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

SUMMARY OF THE PROSPECTUS

 

This summary highlights selected information from this prospectus and may not contain all of the information that is important to you in making an investment decision. Before investing in our securities, you should carefully read this entire prospectus, including our financial statements and the related notes included in this prospectus, the information set forth under the headingsRisk FactorsandManagements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,and the information incorporated by reference to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. See also the section entitledWhere You Can Find Additional Information.

 

Unless the context otherwise requires, all references in this prospectus toWaveDancer,theCompany,theregistrant,” “we,” “usandourin this prospectus refer to WaveDancer, Inc. (formerly known as Information Analysis Incorporated).

 

Our Company

 

Founded in 1979 as Information Analysis Incorporated, the Company changed its name to WaveDancer, Inc. and converted from a Virginia corporation to a Delaware corporation in December 2021. The Company is in the business of developing and maintaining information technology (“IT”) systems, modernizing client information systems, and performing other IT-related professional services to government and commercial organizations.

 

The Company is an IT provider primarily for the benefit of federal government agencies. At present, we primarily apply our technology, services and experience to legacy software migration and modernization, developing web-based and mobile device solutions, including dynamic electronic forms development and conversion, data analytics, and we are in the process of acquiring talent and expertise in developing cybersecurity and cloud services practices. Our focus is on enterprise IT solutions primarily relating to system modernization, cloud-based solutions and cybersecurity protection.

 

Since the Company’s inception, we have performed software development and conversion projects for over 100 commercial and government customers including, but not limited to, the Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury, U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, Department of Veterans Affairs, and General Dynamics Information Technology (formerly Computer Sciences Corporation, CSRA).

 

Modernization has been a core competency of the Company for over 20 years. We have modernized over 100 million lines of COBOL code for over 35 governmental and commercial customers. We maintain a pool of skilled COBOL programmers. This provides us with competitive advantage as the labor pool of such programmers is shrinking as aging software professionals retire. Our business has also historically relied upon the reselling of applications, primarily for forms development.

 

Through our acquisition in April 2021 of Tellenger, Inc. (“Tellenger”), which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, we acquired competencies in web-based solutions and cybersecurity. Tellenger is a boutique IT consulting and software development firm specializing in modernization, software development, cybersecurity, cloud solutions, and data analytics. We believe combining web-based solutions with system modernization will provide us with the skill sets that are needed to migrate legacy systems to the cloud. We foresee this as a key component of our modernization growth since there are billions of lines of code, in both the governmental and commercial sectors, that eventually must be modernized. It is also our intention to better leverage our resources, largely gained through the acquisition of Tellenger, to take advantage of the growth in the cybersecurity market.

 

In December 2021, we announced the reorganization of our entire professional services practice into Tellenger, and as a result, our professional services are contained in a single entity. Through Tellenger, we perform services such as business process re-engineering, cloud migrations, and Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) implementations on behalf of clients in the private and public sector with an aim to increase productivity, gain efficiencies, and achieve key performance indicators. Tellenger is appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3.

Through our acquisition of Gray Matters, Inc. and in connection with our business transformation strategy which we discuss below, in December 2021 we gained access to blockchain and encryption algorithm technology. Gray Matters specializes in the supply chain management (“SCM”) industry and in United States intelligence, national security and diplomatic organizations. Gray Matters uses a “Zero Trust” product and is designed to secure and monitor the lifecycle of manufacturing through destruction and recycling.

 

The Committed Equity Financing

 

We entered into a registration rights agreement, dated as of July 8, 2022 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) and the Purchase Agreement, dated as of July 8, 2022, with the Selling Stockholder. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain limitations and conditions, we have the right, but not the obligation, to sell to the Selling Stockholder up to $15,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock, from time to time. Sales of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, and the timing of any such sales, are solely at our option, and we are under no obligation to sell any securities to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, we have filed the registration statement that includes this prospectus with the SEC to register under the Securities Act the resale by the Selling Stockholder of up to 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock that we may issue or elect, in our sole discretion, to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder, from time to time from and after the Commencement Date (as defined below) under the Purchase Agreement.

 

Upon the initial satisfaction of the conditions to the Selling Stockholder’s purchase obligations set forth in the Purchase Agreement (the “Commencement”), including that the registration statement that includes this prospectus is declared effective by the SEC, we will have the right, but not the obligation, from time to time at our sole discretion over the 24-month period after the date on which the Commencement occurs (the “Commencement Date”), to direct the Selling Stockholder, by timely delivering written notice to the Selling Stockholder (each, a “VWAP Purchase Notice”) after 6:00 a.m. prior to 9:00 a.m., Eastern time, on any trading day (each, a “Purchase Date”), so long as the closing sale price of our Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to such Purchase Date is not less than $0.50 (subject to adjustment as set forth in the Purchase Agreement) (the “Threshold Price”), to purchase a specified amount of shares of Common Stock up to a certain maximum amount per VWAP Purchase calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement (each, a “VWAP Purchase”).

 

The per share purchase price for the shares that the Selling Stockholder is required to purchase in any single VWAP Purchase will be determined by reference to the volume weighted average price of our Common Stock (the “VWAP”) for the period on the applicable Purchase Date, beginning at the official open (or “commencement”) of the regular trading session and ending at the earliest to occur of (x) 3:59:00 p.m., Eastern Time or such earlier time publicly announced as the official close of the regular trading session on Nasdaq on such Purchase Date, (y) such time that the total aggregate volume of shares of Common Stock traded on Nasdaq reaches a certain maximum volume threshold amount calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, and (z) such time that the trading price of a share of our Common Stock falls below a minimum price threshold specified by the Company in the applicable VWAP Purchase Notice for such VWAP Purchase, or if no such minimum price threshold is specified by the Company in the VWAP Purchase Notice, a price calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement (such period, the “VWAP Purchase Period”), less a fixed 5% discount to the VWAP of the Common Stock for such VWAP Purchase Period.

 

In addition to the VWAP Purchases described above, if either (i) we do not timely effect a VWAP Purchase at the commencement of trading on Nasdaq on a trading day that otherwise would qualify as a Purchase Date for a VWAP Purchase or (ii) we timely effect a VWAP Purchase on a Purchase Date, and the VWAP Purchase Period for such VWAP Purchase has ended prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date, then, in either case, we will also have the right, but not the obligation, subject to the continued satisfaction of conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, to direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase, on any trading day, including the same Purchase Date on which a VWAP Purchase is effected, a specified amount of Common Stock (each, an “Intraday VWAP Purchase”), up to a certain maximum amount per VWAP Purchase calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, by the delivery to the Selling Stockholder of an irrevocable written purchase notice (each, an “Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice”), after 10:00 a.m., Eastern time (and after the VWAP Purchase Period(s) for any prior VWAP Purchase and/or prior Intraday VWAP Purchase have ended), and prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date, so long as the closing sale price of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to such Purchase Date is not less than the Threshold Price.

 

-4-

 

The per share purchase price for the shares of our Common Stock that we elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder in an Intraday VWAP Purchase pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, will be calculated in the same manner as in the case of a VWAP Purchase (including the same fixed percentage discounts to the applicable VWAP as in the case of a VWAP Purchase, as described above), provided that the VWAP for each Intraday VWAP Purchase effected on a Purchase Date will be calculated over different periods during the regular trading session on Nasdaq on such Purchase Date, each of which will commence and end at different times on such Purchase Date.

 

In addition to the VWAP Purchases and Intraday VWAP Purchases described above, we may direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase no more than 1,500,000 shares or $2,000,000 of our Common Stock outside of the volume limitations described above (the “Additional VWAP Purchase”) provided that such $2,000,000 limit may be exceeded during any Additional VWAP Purchase Period based on multiplying 0.95 by the simple average of the daily VWAP over the 20 trading days following such direction by the Company (the “Additional VWAP Purchase Period”). Such Additional VWAP Purchases may occur in three separate increments of no more than 500,000 shares of Common Stock each, with at least five trading days separating each Additional VWAP Purchase Period.

 

There is no upper limit on the price per share that the Selling Stockholder could be obligated to pay for the Common Stock we may elect to sell to it in any VWAP Purchase, any Intraday VWAP Purchase, or any Additional VWAP Purchase under the Purchase Agreement. The purchase price per share of Common Stock that we may elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder in a VWAP Purchase, an Intraday VWAP Purchase, or an Additional VWAP Purchase under the Purchase Agreement will be equitably adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction occurring during the applicable VWAP Purchase Period for such VWAP Purchase or such Intraday VWAP Purchase or during the Additional VWAP Purchase Period for such Additional VWAP Purchase. See “The Committed Equity Financing—Purchases of Common Stock under the Purchase Agreement.”

 

In consideration of the Company’s execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement, and upon the fulfillment of certain conditions or the occurrence of certain periods of time set forth in the Purchase Agreement, the Company will issue to the Selling Stockholder 179,670 shares of Common Stock (the “Commitment Shares”). The Commitment Shares will be fully earned as of the date they are issuable pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and are included on this registration statement.

 

Under the applicable Nasdaq rules, we cannot issue more than 3,477,599 shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, which is equal to 19.99% of the total number of shares of our Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the execution of the Purchase Agreement, which number of shares will be reduced, on a share-for-share basis, by the number of shares of Common Stock issued or issuable pursuant to any transaction or series of transactions that may be aggregated with the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement under applicable rules of Nasdaq (the “Exchange Cap”), unless (i) we obtain stockholder approval to issue shares in excess of the Exchange Cap in accordance with applicable Nasdaq rules, or (ii) the average price per share paid by the Selling Stockholder for all of the shares of Common Stock that we direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase from us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, equals or exceeds $1.2175 per share. Moreover, we cannot sell any shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement which, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock then beneficially owned by the Selling Stockholder and its affiliates (as calculated pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, and Rule 13d-3 promulgated thereunder), would result in the Selling Stockholder beneficially owning more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock (the “Beneficial Ownership Cap”).

 

We will control the timing and amount of any sales of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder. Actual sales of shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder will depend on a variety of factors, including, among other things, market conditions, the trading price of our Common Stock and determinations by us as to the appropriate sources of funding for our business and operations. See “Risk Factors—Risks Related to the Offering—It is not possible to predict the actual number of shares of Common Stock we will sell under the Purchase Agreement to the Selling Stockholder, or the actual gross proceeds resulting from those sales.”

 

There are no restrictions on future financings, rights of first refusal, participation rights, penalties or liquidated damages in the Purchase Agreement or Registration Rights Agreement, except that we are prohibited (with certain limited exceptions) from effecting or entering into an agreement to effect certain “Variable Rate Transactions” (as defined in the Purchase Agreement).

 

-5-

 

As of July 7, 2022, there were 17,396,697 shares of Common Stock outstanding, of which 15,518,592 shares of Common Stock were held by non-affiliates of the Company. Although the Purchase Agreement provides that we may sell up to an aggregate of $15,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder, only 4,500,000 shares of our Common Stock are being registered for resale under the registration statement that includes this prospectus. If all of the 4,500,000 shares offered for resale by the Selling Stockholder under this prospectus were issued and outstanding as of July 7, 2022, such shares would represent approximately 20.6% of the total number of outstanding shares of our Common Stock, and approximately 22.5% of the total number of outstanding shares of Common Stock held by non-affiliates, in each case as of July 7, 2022.

 

If it becomes necessary for us to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder more than the 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock that are being registered for resale under this prospectus in order to receive aggregate gross proceeds equal to $15,000,000, we must first file with the SEC one or more additional registration statements, which the SEC must declare effective. See “Risk Factors—Risks Related to the Offering—We may not have access to the full amount available under the Purchase Agreement.

 

Recent Developments

 

Termination of Knowmadics Agreement

 

On June 6, 2022, the Company terminated the Stock and Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “Knowmadics Agreement”) by and among, in addition to the Company and others, Knowmadics, Inc. (“Knowmadics”), and the holders of Knowmadics outstanding shares of common stock and warrants exercisable for shares of Knowmadics common stock (“Knowmadics Sellers”). The Company, Knowmadics and Knowmadics Sellers originally entered into the Knowmadics Agreement on March 18, 2022, as reported on the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed March 24, 2022.

 

The Company terminated the Knowmadics Agreement under the financing contingency set forth in the Agreement as opposed to relying upon other termination rights available to the Company. Under the Knowmadics Agreement, closing was contingent upon the Company undertaking a financing to raise the funds required to complete the acquisition. After using its commercially reasonable efforts to take all actions or to do all things reasonably necessary to arrange such financing, the Company determined that the financing could not be completed and exercised its right to terminate the Knowmadics Agreement in accordance with its terms.

BRS is expected to act as an executing broker for the sale of the shares of our common stock sold by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Committed Equity Financing. See “Plan of Distribution (Conflict of Interest).” 

The receipt by the Selling Stockholder of all the proceeds from sales of shares of our common stock to the public made through BRS results in a “conflict of interest” under Rule 5121 of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”). Accordingly, such sales will be conducted in compliance with FINRA Rule 5121, which requires that a “qualified independent underwriter,” as defined by FINRA participate in the preparation of the registration statement and exercise the usual standard of “due diligence” with respect to such document. We have engaged Northland Securities, Inc. to be the qualified independent underwriter and participate in the preparation of the registration statement and exercise the usual standards of “due diligence” in respect thereto. The Selling Stockholder has agreed to pay a fee of $50,000 upon the effectiveness of this registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part in consideration for its services and expenses as the qualified independent underwriter. Northland Securities, Inc. will receive no other compensation. See “Plan of Distribution (Conflict of Interest).”

Summary Risk Factors

 

Our business is subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including those highlighted in the section entitled “Risk Factors” immediately following this prospectus summary, that represent challenges that we face in connection with the successful implementation of our strategy and the growth of our business. In particular, the following considerations, among others, may offset our competitive strengths or have a negative effect on our business strategy, which could cause a decline in the price of shares of our Common Stock and result in a loss of all or a portion of your investment:

 

Our business is subject to risks related to our acquisition of Gray Matters, Inc.

 

Recent, past and future acquisitions and investments could disrupt our business and harm our financial condition and operating results.

 

Our business is subject to risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine.

 

Our operating history and recent and planned changes to our business model make it difficult to evaluate our current business and prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.

 

We have had operating losses in three of each of the last four years and may not achieve or maintain profitability in the future.

 

If the cybersecurity, Internet of Things (“IoT”), enterprise resource planning (“ERP”), command and control (“C2”), or supply chain management (“SCM”) markets are not receptive to our solutions, our sales will not grow as quickly as anticipated, or at all, and our business, results of operations and financial condition would be harmed.

 

A portion of our revenue is expected to be generated by sales to government entities, which are subject to a number of challenges and risks.

 

We face intense competition and could lose market share to our competitors, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

-7-

 

We rely on our management team and other key employees and will need additional personnel to grow our business, and the loss of one or more key employees or our inability to hire, integrate, train and retain qualified personnel, including members for our board of directors, could harm our business.

 

Our business is subject to risks related to the use of blockchain and distributed ledger technology.

 

We are dependent on a few key customer contracts for a significant portion of our future revenue, and a significant reduction in services to one or more of these contracts would reduce our future revenue and harm our anticipated operating results.

 

Our proprietary rights may be difficult to enforce or protect, which could enable others to copy or use aspects of our products or subscriptions without compensating us.

 

Our use of open-source software in our products and subscriptions could negatively affect our ability to sell our products and subscriptions and subject us to possible litigation.

 

We are dependent on information technology, and disruptions, failures or security breaches of our information technology infrastructure could have a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

We depend on computing infrastructure operated by Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), Microsoft, and other third parties to support some of our solutions and customers, and any errors, disruption, performance problems, or failure in their or our operational infrastructure could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

 

Failure to comply with governmental laws and regulations could harm our business.

 

We are subject to risks associated with our strategic investments, and impairments in the value of our investments could negatively impact our financial results.

 

Our failure to raise additional capital or generate the significant capital necessary to expand our operations and invest in new products and subscriptions could reduce our ability to compete and could harm our business.

 

The requirements of being a public company may strain our resources, divert management’s attention, and affect our ability to attract and retain qualified board members.

 

If we are not able to maintain and enhance our brand and our reputation as a provider of high-quality security solutions and services, our business and results of operations may be adversely affected.

Smaller Reporting Company

 

We are a “smaller reporting company” as defined in Item 10(f)(1) of Regulation S-K. Smaller reporting companies may take advantage of certain reduced disclosure obligations, including, among other things, providing only two years of audited financial statements. We will remain a smaller reporting company until the last day of the fiscal year in which (i) the market value of our Common Stock held by non-affiliates exceeds $250.0 million as of the end of that fiscal year’s second fiscal quarter, or (ii) our annual revenues exceed $100.0 million during such completed fiscal year and the market value of our Common Stock held by non-affiliates exceeds $700.0 million as of the end of that fiscal year’s second fiscal quarter. To the extent we take advantage of such reduced disclosure obligations, it may also make comparison of our financial statements with other public companies difficult or impossible.

RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully read and consider all of the risks described below and in theRisk Factorssection of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and other subsequent filings made with the SEC, which are incorporated by reference into this prospectus, to the extent not otherwise updated by the risk factors below.

 

The risks and uncertainties set forth below and incorporated by reference into this prospectus are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known or which we consider immaterial as of the date hereof may also have an adverse effect on our business. If any of the matters discussed in the following risk factors, or those incorporated by reference, were to occur, our financial condition, business and results of operations (including cash flows) may be materially adversely affected. In that event, the market price of our Common Stock could decline, and you could lose all or part of your investment.

 

Risks Related to the Offering

 

It is not possible to predict the actual number of shares we will sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, or the actual gross proceeds that will result from those sales.

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Selling Stockholder has committed to purchase up to $15,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock, subject to certain limitations and the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement. From and after the Commencement Date, we will have the right, but not the obligation, to sell shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement from time to time over a period of up to 24 months beginning on the Commencement Date.

 

We generally have the right to control the timing and amount of any sales of our shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. Sales of our Common Stock, if any, to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement will depend upon market conditions and other factors to be determined by us. We may ultimately decide to sell to the Selling Stockholder all, some or none of the shares of our Common Stock that may be available for us to sell to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Depending on market liquidity at the time, resales of those shares by the Selling Stockholder may cause the public trading price of our Common Stock to decrease.

 

Because the purchase price per share to be paid by the Selling Stockholder for the shares of Common Stock that we may elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, if any, will fluctuate based on the market prices of our Common Stock at the time we elect to sell shares to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, it is not possible for us to predict, as of the date of this prospectus and prior to any such sales, the number of shares of Common Stock that we will sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, the purchase price per share that the Selling Stockholder will pay for shares purchased from us under the Purchase Agreement, or the aggregate gross proceeds that we will receive from those purchases by the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement.

 

Investors who buy shares at different times will likely pay different prices and may experience different levels of dilution.

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, we have discretion, subject to market demand, to vary the timing, prices, and numbers of shares sold to the Selling Stockholder. If and when we do elect to sell shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, after the Selling Stockholder has acquired such shares, the Selling Stockholder may resell all, some or none of such shares at any time or from time to time in its discretion and at different prices. As a result, investors who purchase shares from the Selling Stockholder at different times will likely pay different prices for those shares, and so may experience different levels of dilution and in some cases substantial dilution and different outcomes in their investment results.

 

-10-

 

Investors may experience a decline in the value of the shares they purchase from the Selling Stockholder in this offering as a result of future sales made by us to the Selling Stockholder at prices lower than the prices such investors paid to the Selling Stockholder for their shares in this offering. In addition, if we sell a substantial number of shares to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, or if investors expect that we will do so, the actual sales of shares or the mere existence of our arrangement with the Selling Stockholder may make it more difficult for us to sell equity or equity-related securities in the future at a time and at a price that we might otherwise wish to effect such sales.

 

We may not have access to the full amount available under the Purchase Agreement.

 

Although the Purchase Agreement provides that we may sell up to an aggregate of $15,000,000 of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder, only 4,500,000 shares of our Common Stock are being registered for resale under this prospectus. If it becomes necessary for us to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement more than the 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock being registered for resale under this prospectus in order to receive aggregate gross proceeds equal to $15,000,000 under the Purchase Agreement, we must file with the SEC one or more additional registration statements to register under the Securities Act the resale by the Selling Stockholder of any such additional shares of our Common Stock we wish to sell from time to time under the Purchase Agreement, which the SEC must declare effective, in each case before we may elect to sell any additional shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. Additionally, under the applicable rules of Nasdaq, in no event may we issue to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement more than the Exchange Cap, unless (i) we obtain stockholder approval to issue shares of Common Stock in excess of the Exchange Cap under the Purchase Agreement in accordance with applicable Nasdaq rules or (ii) the average price per share paid by the Selling Stockholder for all of the shares of Common Stock that we direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase from us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, equals or exceeds $1.2175 per share. In addition, the Selling Stockholder will not be required to purchase any shares of Common Stock if such sale would result in the Selling Stockholder’s beneficial ownership exceeding 4.99% of the then-outstanding shares of Common Stock. Our inability to access a portion or the full amount available under the Purchase Agreement, in the absence of any other financing sources, could have a material adverse effect on our business or results of operation.

 

Any issuance and sale by us under the Purchase Agreement of a substantial amount of shares of our Common Stock in addition to the 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock being registered for resale by the Selling Stockholder under this prospectus could cause additional substantial dilution to our stockholders. The number of shares of our Common Stock ultimately offered for sale by the Selling Stockholder is dependent upon the number of shares of Common Stock, if any, we ultimately elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement.

 

We may use these proceeds from sales under the Purchase Agreement in ways with which you may not agree.

 

We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the Common Stock being offered by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to this prospectus. However, we may receive up to $15,000,000 in aggregate gross proceeds from sales of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement that we may, in our discretion, elect to make, from and after the Commencement Date from time to time over a period of up to 24 months beginning on the Commencement Date. The net proceeds we receive from sales of shares of our Common Stock, if any, under the Purchase Agreement, will depend on the frequency and prices at which we sell shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder after the date of this prospectus. To the extent we sell Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder, we currently intend to use any proceeds therefrom for general corporate purposes, including making capital expenditures and funding working capital and future acquisitions and investments, however, we have considerable discretion in the application of the proceeds. You will not have the opportunity, as part of your investment decision, to assess whether the proceeds we may receive from sales of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement are being used by us in a manner agreeable to you. You must rely on management’s judgment regarding the application of these proceeds. The proceeds may be used for corporate purposes that do not immediately improve our profitability or increase the price of our Common Stock.

Risks Related to Potential, Pending, and Abandoned Acquisitions, including of Knowmadics, Inc.

 

We have decided not to consummate the acquisition of Knowmadics, Inc., and have terminated the definitive agreement to acquire Knowmadics, Inc.

 

On June 6, 2022, the Company terminated the Stock and Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “Knowmadics Agreement”) by and among, in addition to the Company and others, Knowmadics, Inc. (“Knowmadics”), and the holders of Knowmadics outstanding shares of common stock and warrants exercisable for shares of Knowmadics common stock (“Knowmadics Sellers”). The Company, Knowmadics and Knowmadics Sellers originally entered into the Knowmadics Agreement on March 18, 2022.

 

The Company terminated the Knowmadics Agreement under the financing contingency set forth in the Agreement as opposed to relying upon other termination rights available to the Company. Under the Knowmadics Agreement, closing was contingent upon the Company undertaking a financing to raise the funds required to complete the acquisition. After using its commercially reasonable efforts to take all actions or to do all things reasonably necessary to arrange such financing, the Company determined that the financing could not be completed and exercised its right to terminate the Knowmadics Agreement in accordance with its terms.

 

As a result of the proposed acquisition not being completed, the share price of our Common Stock may decrease to the extent that the current market price of our Common Stock reflects an assumption that a transaction will be completed. Further, the termination of the Knowmadics Agreement may result in negative publicity and a negative impression of us in the investment community. Any disruption to our business resulting from the announcement and pendency of the transaction and from intensifying competition from our competitors, including any adverse changes in our relationships with our customers, employees, partners and other parties, might accelerate. There can be no assurance that our business, relationships with other parties, liquidity or financial condition will not be adversely affected, as compared to the condition prior to the announcement of the acquisition now that the acquisition will not be consummated.

 

Recent, past and future acquisitions and investments could disrupt our business and harm our financial condition and operating results.

 

Our success will depend, in part, on our ability to expand our platform and grow our business in response to changing technologies, customer demands and competitive pressures. In some circumstances, we may decide to do so through the acquisition of complementary businesses and technologies rather than through internal development, including, for example, our acquisitions of Tellenger and Gray Matters.

 

The identification of suitable acquisition candidates can be difficult, time-consuming, and costly, and we may not be able to successfully complete acquisitions that we target in the future. The risks we face in connection with acquisitions, including the above-mentioned acquisitions, include:

 

diversion of management time and focus from operating our business to addressing acquisition integration challenges;

 

our ability to successfully achieve billings and revenue targets of acquired businesses;

 

coordination of research and development and sales and marketing functions;

 

integration of solution and service offerings;

 

retention of key employees from the acquired company;

 

changes in relationships with strategic partners as a result of product acquisitions or strategic positioning resulting from the acquisition;

 

cultural challenges associated with integrating employees from the acquired company into our organization;

 

-12-

 

integration of the acquired company’s accounting, management information, human resources and other administrative systems, as well as the acquired operations, technology and rights to our offerings, and any unanticipated expenses related to such integration;

 

the need to implement or improve controls, procedures, and policies at a business that prior to the acquisition may have lacked sufficiently effective controls, procedures and policies;

 

financial reporting, revenue recognition or other financial or control deficiencies of the acquired company that we do not adequately address and that cause our reported results to be incorrect;

 

liability for activities of the acquired company before the acquisition, including intellectual property infringement claims, violations of laws, commercial disputes, tax liabilities and other known and unknown liabilities;

 

completing the transaction and achieving or utilizing the anticipated benefits of the acquisition within the expected timeframe, or at all;

 

unanticipated write-offs or charges; and

 

litigation or other claims in connection with the acquired company, including claims from terminated employees, customers, former stockholders or other third parties which may differ from or be more significant than the risks our business faces.

 

Our failure to address these risks or other problems encountered in connection with our past or future acquisitions and investments could cause us to fail to realize the anticipated benefits of these acquisitions or investments, cause us to incur unanticipated liabilities, and harm our business generally. Future acquisitions could also result in dilutive issuances of equity securities, as happened with our Gray Matters acquisition. There is also a risk that future acquisitions will result in the incurrence of debt, contingent liabilities, amortization expenses, incremental operating expenses or the write-off of goodwill, any of which could harm our financial condition or operating results.

 

Risks Related to Our Current and Planned Cybersecurity, IoT, ERP, C2, and SCM Business

 

The following risk factors relate to our current and planned Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”), cybersecurity, internet of things (“IoT”) device management, enterprise resource planning (“ERP”), command and control (“C2”), and digital logistics and supply chain management (“SCM”) businesses, into which the Company is transitioning in light of its acquisition of Gray Matters.

 

Our operating history and changes to our business model makes it difficult to evaluate our current business and prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.

 

Founded in 1979, we are a business amidst a transformation from a provider of services to a provider of blockchain and IoT technologies. Historically, our business provided systems and software modernization services to government customers and has recently evolved to provide more logistics and cybersecurity services to government customers.

 

In December 2021, we announced the reorganization of our professional services practice into our wholly-owned subsidiary Tellenger, Inc. (“Tellenger”), which we acquired in April 2021. This reorganization put our professional services into a single entity. Tellenger is a boutique IT consulting and software development firm specializing in modernization, software development, cybersecurity, cloud solutions, and data analytics. With the acquisition of Gray Matters, Inc. in December 2021, we intend to reenter the market as a dual-use government and commercial SaaS technology provider providing blockchain-enabled supply chain security and IoT device management, security and C2 solutions.

 

-13-

 

The markets for many of our acquired solutions are in the early stages of development and customer adoption remains limited. Additionally, most of our acquired solutions are sold as subscriptions, often to large enterprises or governments, and contract terms may vary significantly. We have encountered and will continue to encounter risks and uncertainties frequently encountered by emerging technology-based companies in developing markets.

 

If our assumptions regarding these risks and uncertainties are incorrect or change in response to changes in the digital logistics/SCM, IT security, enterprise resource planning (“ERP”), C2 or IoT market, our results of operations and financial results could differ materially from our plans and forecasts. Any success we may experience in the future will depend in large part on our ability to, among other things:

 

successfully execute our business plan and necessary transition activities;

 

maintain and expand our customer base and the ways in which customers use our solutions and services;

 

expand revenue from existing customers through increased or broader use of our solutions, subscriptions and services within their organizations;

 

grow our revenues from software, subscriptions and recent offerings from our recent and potential acquisitions;

 

convince customers to allocate a fixed portion of their annual IT budgets to our solutions and services;

 

improve the performance and capabilities of our platform through research and development;

 

effectively expand our business domestically and internationally; and

 

successfully compete with other companies that currently provide, or may in the future provide, solutions like ours that protect against advanced cyberattacks, measure security effectiveness, or investigate and respond to attacks.

 

If we are unable to achieve our key objectives, including the objectives listed above, our business and results of operations will be adversely affected, and the fair market value of our Common Stock could decline.

 

Risks Related to Cybersecurity Incidents, Privacy and Data Protection

 

We are dependent on information technology, and disruptions, failures or security breaches of our information technology infrastructure could have a material adverse effect on our operations. In addition, increased information technology security threats and more sophisticated computer crime pose a risk to our systems, networks, products, and services.

 

We rely on information technology networks and systems, including the Internet, blockchain and cloud services, many of which are managed by third parties, to securely process, transmit and store electronic information of financial, marketing, legal and regulatory nature to manage our business processes and activities. Although we have implemented enhanced controls around our information technology systems, these systems may be susceptible to damage, disruptions, or shutdowns due to failures during the process of upgrading or replacing software, databases, power outages, hardware failures, telecommunication failures, user errors, natural disasters, terrorist attacks or other catastrophic events. If any of our significant information technology systems suffer severe damage, disruption or shutdown, and our disaster recovery and business continuity plans do not effectively resolve the issues in a timely manner, our product and services sales, financial condition and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected, and we could experience delays in reporting our financial results, or our operations may be disrupted, exposing us to performance failures with customers. In addition, cybersecurity threats, such as computer viruses, attacks by computer hackers or other cybersecurity threats pose a risk to the security of our systems and networks and the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of our data.

 

-14-

 

In addition, through potential acquisitions we are currently seeking, we intend to offer certain services and products that are digitally enabled or that connect to and are part of the IoT network and will be used by third parties for operational purposes or to collect data, which may be vulnerable to attack. Our blockchain, which we intend to utilize in our services, may also be vulnerable to attack. See the risk factors under the sub-heading “Risks Related to Blockchain” for more information on such risks with respect to our blockchain. Cybersecurity attacks may target web interfaces, hardware, software and information installed, stored or transmitted by our products after they have been purchased and incorporated into third parties’ products, facilities or infrastructure. While we will attempt to provide security measures, blockchain-based or otherwise, to safeguard our products and services from cyber threats, the potential for an attack remains. A successful attack may result in the misappropriation, destruction, unauthorized access to or disclosure of third parties’ confidential information, damage or disruption to third parties’ operations, potentially with personal health and safety risks, recall of our products or increased costs for security and remediation, as well as damage to our brand reputation.

 

There can be no assurance that our security controls and safeguard measures taken to improve our cybersecurity protection will be sufficient to mitigate all potential risks to our systems, networks and data. Potential consequences of a cybersecurity attack include disruption to systems, corruption of data, unauthorized release of confidential or otherwise protected information, reputational damage, and litigation with third parties, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations. The amount of insurance coverage we maintain may be inadequate to cover claims or liabilities related to a cybersecurity attack.

 

Risks Related to Financing

 

Our results of operations may vary significantly from period to period, which could cause the trading price of our Common Stock to decline or fluctuate materially.

 

Our results of operations have varied significantly from period to period, and we expect that our results of operations, including, but not limited to our GAAP and non-GAAP measures, will continue to vary as a result of a number of factors, many of which are outside of our control and may be difficult to predict, including:

 

our ability to attract new and retain existing customers or sell additional solutions to our existing customers;

 

our ability to successfully execute our business plan and necessary transition activities following the acquisition of Gray Matters;

 

changes in our mix of solutions, subscriptions and services sold, including changes in the average contract length for subscriptions and support;

 

the timing and success of new platform, subscription or service introductions by us or our competitors;

 

real or perceived reductions in the efficacy of our solutions by our customers or in the marketplace;

 

budgeting cycles, seasonal buying patterns and purchasing practices of customers;

 

the timing of new contracts for our solutions and length of our sales cycles;

 

changes in customer, distributor or reseller requirements or market needs;

 

changes in the growth rate of the digital logistics or IT security market;

 

any change in the competitive landscape of the digital logistics or IT security market, including consolidation among our customers or competitors and strategic partnerships entered into by and between our competitors;

 

deferral of orders from customers in anticipation of new products or product enhancements announced by us or our competitors;

 

-15-

 

our ability to successfully and continuously expand our business domestically and internationally;

 

reductions in customer retention rates for our subscriptions and support;

 

decisions by organizations to purchase digital logistics or IT security solutions from larger, more established security vendors or from their primary IT equipment vendors or IT service providers;

 

changes in our pricing policies or those of our competitors;

 

the timing and costs related to the development or acquisition of technologies or businesses or strategic partnerships;

 

the lack of synergy or the inability to realize expected synergies, resulting from acquisitions or strategic partnerships;

 

our inability to execute, complete or integrate efficiently any acquisition that we may undertake;

 

increased expenses, unforeseen liabilities, or write-downs and any impact on our operating results from any acquisitions we consummate, including of Gray Matters;

 

insolvency or credit difficulties confronting our customers, affecting their ability to purchase or pay for our solutions, subscriptions and services;

 

the cost and potential outcomes of future litigation;

 

the departure of key employees;

 

seasonality or cyclical fluctuations in our business;

 

political, economic and social instability, including with respect to the conflict in Ukraine;

 

public health crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and related measures to protect the public health;

 

future accounting pronouncements or changes in our accounting policies or practices;

 

the amount and timing of operating costs and capital expenditures related to the maintenance and expansion of our business, operations and infrastructure; and

 

the amount and timing of costs related to any cost reduction initiatives and the impact of such initiatives.

 

Any of the above factors, individually or in the aggregate, may result in significant fluctuations in our financial and other operating results from period to period. As a result of this variability, our historical results of operations should not be relied upon as an indication of future performance. Moreover, this variability and unpredictability could result in our failure to meet our operating plan or the expectations of investors or analysts for any period. If we fail to meet such expectations for these or other reasons, the market price of our Common Stock could fall substantially, and we could face costly lawsuits, including securities class action suits.

 

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

This prospectus relates to the offer and resale of up to 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock by the Selling Stockholder, which consist of shares of Common Stock that we may, in our discretion, elect to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder, from time to time after the Commencement Date, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, in which the Selling Stockholder has committed, subject to satisfaction of specified conditions, to purchase from us, at our direction, up to $15,000,000 of our Common Stock, subject to limitations specified in the Purchase Agreement.

 

-16-

 

We are not selling any shares of Common Stock being offered by this prospectus and will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of such shares by the Selling Stockholder. However, we may receive up to $15,000,000 in aggregate gross proceeds from sales of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder that we may, in our discretion, elect to make, from time to time after the Commencement Date, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.

 

We intend that any funds we receive from our sale of shares to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement will be used for general corporate purposes. We will have broad discretion in the way that we use these proceeds.

 

The Selling Stockholder will pay any underwriting discounts and commissions and expenses incurred by it for brokerage, accounting, tax or legal services or any other expenses incurred by it in disposing of the Common Stock. We will bear all other costs, fees and expenses incurred in effecting the registration of the Common Stock covered by this prospectus, including, without limitation, all registration and filing fees and fees and expenses of our counsel and our accountants.

 

THE COMMITTED EQUITY FINANCING

 

The following description of the offering is a summary of certain material attributes and characteristics, which does not purport to be complete in every detail and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement. The following summary uses words and terms which are defined in the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement. For full particulars of the terms of the offering, reference is made to the Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement.

 

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, subject to satisfaction of specified conditions in the Purchase Agreement on the Commencement Date, we will have the right to sell to the Selling Stockholder up to $15,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock, subject to certain limitations and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, from time to time during the term of the Purchase Agreement. Sales of Common Stock pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, and the timing of any sales, are solely at our option, and we are under no obligation to sell any securities to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. In accordance with our obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement, we have filed the registration statement that includes this prospectus with the SEC to register under the Securities Act the resale by the Selling Stockholder of up to 4,500,000 shares of Common Stock that we may issue and elect, in our sole discretion, to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder, from time to time from and after the Commencement Date under the Purchase Agreement.

 

We do not have the right to commence any sales of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement until the Commencement Date, which is the date on which all of the initial conditions to the Selling Stockholder’s purchase obligations set forth in the Purchase Agreement have been satisfied, including that the registration statement that includes this prospectus be declared effective by the SEC and the final form of this prospectus is filed with the SEC. From and after the Commencement Date, we will have the right, but not the obligation, from time to time at our sole discretion over the 24-month period commencing on the Commencement Date, subject to the continued satisfaction of conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement to direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase up to a specified maximum amount of shares of Common Stock as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain additional limitations set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

 

From and after Commencement, the Company will control the timing and amount of any sales of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder. Actual sales of shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by us from time to time, including, among other things, market conditions, the trading price of our Common Stock and determinations by us as to the appropriate sources of funding for our business and operations.

Under the applicable Nasdaq rules, in no event may we issue to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement more than the Exchange Cap of 3,477,599 shares of Common Stock, which number of shares is equal to 19.99% of the total number of shares of our Common Stock that were issued and outstanding immediately prior to the execution of the Purchase Agreement and subject to certain adjustments set forth in the Purchase Agreement, unless we obtain stockholder approval to issue shares in excess of the Exchange Cap in accordance with applicable Nasdaq rules. Notwithstanding the above, the Exchange Cap shall not be applicable solely to the extent that (and only for so long as) the Average Price (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) shall equal or exceed $1.2175 (the “Base Price”), representing a price per share equal to the sum of (i) the lower of (x) the Nasdaq official closing price of our Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market on the date of the Purchase Agreement and (y) the average Nasdaq official closing price of the Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market for the five consecutive trading days ending on the date of the Purchase Agreement, and (ii) $0.0175 (subject to adjustment for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction that occurs on or after the date of the Purchase Agreement).  Moreover, we may not issue or sell any shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement which, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock then beneficially owned by the Selling Stockholder and its affiliates (as calculated pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13d-3 promulgated thereunder), would result in the Selling Stockholder beneficially owning any shares of Common Stock in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Cap.

 

In consideration of the Company’s execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement, on the trading day immediately following the closing date of the Purchase Agreement, the Company will issue to the Selling Stockholder 89,835 shares of Common Stock (the “Initial Commitment Shares”). The Initial Commitment Shares will be fully earned as of the closing date of the Purchase Agreement and are included on this registration statement.

 

Neither we nor the Selling Stockholder may assign or transfer any of our respective rights and obligations under the Purchase Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement.

 

The net proceeds from sales, if any, under the Purchase Agreement, will depend on the frequency and prices at which we sell shares of Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder. To the extent we sell shares under the Purchase Agreement, we currently plan to use any proceeds therefrom for general corporate purposes, including making capital expenditures and funding working capital and future acquisitions and investments.

 

The Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement contain customary representations, warranties, conditions and indemnification obligations of the parties. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in such agreements were made only for purposes of such agreements and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreements and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties.

 

Purchases of Common Stock Under the Purchase Agreement

 

VWAP Purchases

 

From and after the Commencement Date, we will have the right, but not the obligation, from time to time at our sole discretion over the 24-month period commencing on the Commencement Date, subject to the continued satisfaction of conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, to direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase up to a specified maximum amount of shares of Common Stock as set forth in the Purchase Agreement by delivering written notice to the Selling Stockholder between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., Eastern time, or a VWAP Purchase Notice, on any trading day, so long as:

 

the closing sale price of our Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to the applicable Purchase Date is not less than $0.50 (the “Threshold Price”) (subject to adjustment as set forth in the Purchase Agreement); and

 

all shares of Common Stock subject to all prior VWAP Purchases and all prior Intraday VWAP Purchases by the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement have been received by the Selling Stockholder prior to the time such VWAP Purchase Notice is delivered by us to the Selling Stockholder.

 

-18-

 

The maximum number of shares of Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder is required to purchase in any single VWAP Purchase under the Purchase Agreement is equal to the lesser of (i) one million and (ii) and 20% of the total aggregate number of shares of our Common Stock traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market during the applicable VWAP Purchase Period (as defined below).

 

The per share purchase price for the shares of Common Stock that we may elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder in a VWAP Purchase pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, will be determined by reference to the VWAP of our Common Stock, during the full (or “regular”) trading session on The Nasdaq Capital Market on the applicable Purchase Date, calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, or, if either (i) the total aggregate volume of shares of our Common Stock traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market reaches a certain threshold amount (calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement) prior to the official close of the regular trading session on The Nasdaq Capital Market on such Purchase Date (the “Purchase Volume Maximum”), or (ii) the trading price of a share of our Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market falls below the applicable dollar amount specified by the Company in the applicable VWAP Purchase Notice for such VWAP Purchase as the per share minimum sale price threshold (provided, however, that if the Company has not specified any such dollar amount, then such amount shall be 90% of the closing sale price of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to such Purchase Date for such VWAP Purchase) (the “VWAP Purchase Minimum Price Threshold”), then the VWAP will be calculated only for the period beginning at the official open (or “commencement”) of the regular trading session and ending at the earlier of (x) such time that the total aggregate volume of shares of our Common Stock traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market reaches the Purchase Volume Maximum for such Purchase and (y) such time that the trading price of a share of our Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market falls below the VWAP Purchase Minimum Price Threshold (as applicable) (such period for each Purchase, the “VWAP Purchase Period”), less a fixed 5% discount.

 

Intraday VWAP Purchases

 

In addition to the VWAP Purchases described above, if either (i) we do not timely effect a VWAP Purchase at the commencement of trading on a trading day that we otherwise could have selected as a Purchase Date for a VWAP Purchase pursuant to the Purchase Agreement or (ii) we timely effect a VWAP Purchase on a Purchase Date, and the VWAP Purchase Period for such VWAP Purchase ends prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date, then, in either case, we shall also have the right, but not the obligation, subject to the continued satisfaction of conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, to direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase, on such trading day (which may be the same Purchase Date, as a VWAP Purchase we elect to effect at the commencement of trading on such Purchase Date), a specified amount of Common Stock, not to exceed the applicable Maximum Purchase Amount for such purchase (subject to certain additional limitations set forth in the Purchase Agreement) (each, an “Intraday VWAP Purchase”), by the delivery to the Selling Stockholder of an irrevocable written purchase notice, after 10:00 a.m., Eastern time (and after the VWAP Purchase Period(s) for any prior VWAP Purchase and/or prior Intraday VWAP Purchase(s) effected on the same Purchase Date (if any) have ended), and prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date (each, an “Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice”), so long as, (i) the closing sale price of our Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to such Purchase Date is not less than the Threshold Price and (ii) all shares of Common Stock subject to all prior VWAP Purchases and all prior Intraday VWAP Purchases by the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement have been received by the Selling Stockholder prior to the time such Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice is delivered by us to the Selling Stockholder.

 

The maximum number of shares of Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder is required to purchase in any single Intraday VWAP Purchase under the Purchase Agreement is equal to the lesser of (i) one million minus the number of shares that the Selling Stockholder is required to purchase pursuant to a VWAP Purchase on that Purchase Date and (ii) and 20% of the total aggregate number of shares of our Common Stock traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market during the applicable Intraday VWAP Purchase Period.

 

-19-

 

The per share purchase price for the shares of Common Stock that we elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder in an Intraday VWAP Purchase pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, will be calculated in the same manner as in the case of a VWAP Purchase, provided that the VWAP for such Intraday VWAP Purchase will be measured during the Intraday VWAP Purchase Period for each such Intraday VWAP Purchase, or the portion of the normal trading hours on The Nasdaq Capital Market on the applicable Purchase Date that will begin after the latest of (i) the time that the applicable Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice is timely received by the Selling Stockholder, (ii) the time that the VWAP Purchase Period for any prior regular VWAP Purchase effected on the same Purchase Date (if any) has ended and (iii) the time that the Intraday VWAP Purchase Period (as defined below) for the most recent prior Intraday VWAP Purchase effected on the same Purchase Date (if any) has ended, and ending at the earlier of (x) the official close of the regular trading session on The Nasdaq Capital Market on such Purchase Date (y) such time that the total aggregate volume of shares of our Common Stock traded on Nasdaq reaches a certain threshold amount (calculated in accordance with the Purchase Agreement) prior to the official close of the regular trading session on The Nasdaq Capital Market on such Purchase Date and (z) such time that the trading price of a share of our Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market falls below the applicable dollar amount specified by the Company in the applicable Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice for such Intraday VWAP Purchase as the per share minimum sale price threshold (provided, however, that if the Company has not specified any such dollar amount, then such amount shall be 90% of the closing sale price of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately prior to such Purchase Date for such Intraday VWAP Purchase) (such period for each Intraday VWAP Purchase, the “Intraday VWAP Purchase Period”), less a fixed 5% discount.

 

We may, in our sole discretion, submit multiple Intraday VWAP Purchase Notices on the same Purchase Date, whether or not we have timely effected a VWAP Purchase earlier on such Purchase Date, provided such Intraday VWAP Purchase Notice is received by the Selling Stockholder prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date, and that the VWAP Purchase Period for an earlier VWAP Purchase (if any) and the Intraday VWAP Purchase Period(s) for each prior Intraday VWAP Purchase (if any) have each ended prior to 3:00 p.m., Eastern time, on such Purchase Date (and provided all shares of Common Stock subject to all prior VWAP Purchases and Intraday VWAP Purchases effected by us under the Purchase Agreement theretofore required to have been received by the Selling Stockholder electronically on the applicable settlement date therefor have been so received by the Selling Stockholder in accordance with the Purchase Agreement).

 

Additional VWAP Purchases

 

In addition to the VWAP Purchases and Intraday VWAP Purchases described above, we may direct the Selling Stockholder to purchase no more than 1,500,000 shares or $2,000,000 of our Common Stock outside of the volume limitations described above (the “Additional VWAP Purchase”) based on the simple average of the daily VWAP over the 20 trading days following such direction by the Company (the “Additional VWAP Purchase Period”), provided that such $2,000,000 limit may be exceeded during any Additional VWAP Purchase Period. Such Additional VWAP Purchases may occur in three separate increments of no more than 500,000 shares of Common Stock each, with at least five trading days separating each Additional VWAP Purchase Period. As consideration for each Additional VWAP Purchases, the Company will direct its transfer agent to issue to the Selling Stockholder shares of our Common Stock having an aggregate dollar value equal to 0.167% of $15,000,000 for each Additional VWAP Purchase, or equal to 0.5% of $15,000,000 in the aggregate (the “Additional VWAP Commitment Shares”). The Additional VWAP Commitment Shares will be fully earned as of the date they are issued and are included on this registration statement.

 

In the case of any VWAP Purchases, Intraday VWAP Purchases, and Additional VWAP Purchases, the purchase price per share will be equitably adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction occurring during the trading days used to compute the purchase price.

 

At or prior to 5:30 p.m., New York City time, on the applicable Purchase Date for a VWAP Purchase, any Intraday VWAP Purchases (as applicable), or any Additional VWAP Purchases (as applicable), the Selling Stockholder will provide us with a written confirmation for such VWAP Purchase, Intraday VWAP Purchase, and Additional VWAP Purchase, as applicable, setting forth the applicable purchase price (both on a per share basis and the total aggregate purchase price) to be paid by the Selling Stockholder for the shares of Common Stock purchased by the Selling Stockholder in such VWAP Purchase, Intraday VWAP Purchase, and Additional VWAP Purchase, as applicable.

 

In addition to the issuance of the Initial Commitment Shares and the Additional VWAP Commitment Shares, on the earlier of (i) the trading day on which the Company has received from the Selling Stockholder total aggregate proceeds equal to $500,000 as payment for all VWAP Purchase share amounts and Intraday VWAP Purchase share amounts purchased by the Selling Stockholder in all VWAP Purchases, Additional VWAP Purchases and Intraday VWAP Purchases, and (ii) 90 days from the date of the Purchase Agreement, the Company will issue to the Selling Stockholder up to 29,945 shares of Common Stock (the “Additional Commitment Shares”). The Additional Commitment Shares will be fully earned as of the date they are issued and are included on this registration statement. The total amount of compensation to be received by the Selling Stockholder in connection with the offering will not exceed 8.0% of B. Riley Principal Capital's $15,000,000 total dollar amount purchase commitment under the Purchase Agreement.

Conditions Precedent to Commencement and Each VWAP Purchase

 

The Selling Stockholder’s obligation to accept VWAP Purchase Notices, Intraday VWAP Purchase Notices and Additional VWAP Purchase Notices that are timely delivered by us under the Purchase Agreement and to purchase shares of our Common Stock in VWAP Purchases, Intraday VWAP Purchases, and Additional VWAP Purchases under the Purchase Agreement, are subject to (i) the initial satisfaction, at the Commencement, and (ii) the satisfaction, at the applicable “VWAP Purchase Commencement Time,” “Intraday VWAP Purchase Commencement Time” or “Additional VWAP Purchase Commencement Time” (as such terms are defined in the Purchase Agreement) on the applicable Purchase Date for each VWAP Purchase, Intraday VWAP Purchase, or Additional VWAP Purchase after the Commencement Date, of the conditions precedent thereto set forth in the Purchase Agreement, all of which are entirely outside of the Selling Stockholder’s control, which conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:

-21-

 

Termination of the Purchase Agreement

 

Unless earlier terminated as provided in the Purchase Agreement, the Purchase Agreement will terminate automatically on the earliest to occur of:

 

the first day of the month next following the 24-month anniversary of Commencement Date;

 

the date on which the Selling Stockholder shall have purchased shares of Common Stock under the Purchase Agreement for an aggregate gross purchase price equal to $15,000,000;

 

the date on which the Common Stock shall have failed to be listed or quoted on Nasdaq or any other Eligible Market; and

The Selling Stockholder also has the right to terminate the Purchase Agreement upon ten trading days’ prior written notice to us, but only upon the occurrence of certain events, including:

 

the occurrence of a Material Adverse Effect (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement);

 

the occurrence of a Fundamental Transaction (as such term defined in the Purchase Agreement) involving our Company;

 

if we are in breach or default in any material respect of any of our covenants and agreements in the Purchase Agreement or in the Registration Rights Agreement, and, if such breach or default is capable of being cured, such breach or default is not cured within 10 trading days after notice of such breach or default is delivered to us;

We have the right to terminate the Purchase Agreement at any time after Commencement, at no cost or penalty, upon ten trading days’ prior written notice to the Selling Stockholder. We and the Selling Stockholder may also terminate the Purchase Agreement at any time by mutual written consent. No termination of the Purchase Agreement by us or by the Selling Stockholder will become effective prior to the second trading day immediately following the date on which any pending VWAP Purchase and any pending Intraday VWAP Purchase has been fully settled in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, and will not affect any of our respective rights and obligations under the Purchase Agreement with respect to any pending VWAP Purchase and any pending Intraday VWAP Purchase, and both we and the Selling Stockholder have agreed to complete our respective obligations with respect to any such pending VWAP Purchase and any pending Intraday VWAP Purchase under the Purchase Agreement. Furthermore, no termination of the Purchase Agreement will affect the Registration Rights Agreement, which will survive any termination of the Purchase Agreement.

 

-22-

 

No Short-Selling or Hedging by the Selling Stockholder

 

The Selling Stockholder has agreed not to engage in or effect, directly or indirectly, for its own principal account or for the principal account of its sole member, any of its or its sole member’s respective officers, or any entity managed or controlled by it or its sole member, any (i) “short sale” (as such term is defined in Rule 200 of Regulation SHO of the Exchange Act) of the Common Stock or (ii) hedging transaction, which establishes a net short position with respect to the Common Stock, during the term of the Purchase Agreement.

 

Prohibition on Variable Rate Transactions

 

Subject to specified exceptions included in the Purchase Agreement, we are limited in our ability to enter into specified “Variable Rate Transactions” (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) during the term of the Purchase Agreement. Such transactions include, among others, the issuance of convertible securities with a conversion or exercise price that is based upon or varies with the trading price of our Common Stock after the date of issuance, or our entry into any agreement for an “equity line of credit” (other than with the Selling Stockholder) whereby we may sell Common Stock at a future-determined price.

 

Effect of Sales of Our Common Stock Under the Purchase Agreement on Our Stockholders

 

All shares of Common Stock that may be issued or sold by us to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement that are being registered under the Securities Act for resale by the Selling Stockholder in this offering are expected to be freely tradable. The shares of Common Stock being registered for resale in this offering may be issued and sold by us to the Selling Stockholder from time to time at our discretion over a period of up to 24 months commencing on the Commencement Date. The resale by the Selling Stockholder of a significant amount of shares registered for resale in this offering at any given time, or the perception that these sales may occur, could cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline and to be highly volatile. Sales of our Common Stock, if any, to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement will depend upon market conditions and other factors to be determined by us. We may ultimately decide to sell to the Selling Stockholder all, some or none of the shares of our Common Stock that may be available for us to sell to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. See “Risk Factors—Risks related to the Offering.”

 

If and when we do elect to sell shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, after the Selling Stockholder has acquired such shares, the Selling Stockholder may resell all, some or none of such shares at any time or from time to time in its discretion and at different prices. As a result, investors who purchase shares from the Selling Stockholder in this offering at different times will likely pay different prices for those shares, and so may experience different levels of dilution and in some cases substantial dilution and different outcomes in their investment results. Investors may experience a decline in the value of the shares they purchase from the Selling Stockholder in this offering as a result of future sales made by us to the Selling Stockholder at prices lower than the prices such investors paid for their shares in this offering. In addition, if we sell a substantial number of shares to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, or if investors expect that we will do so, the actual sales of shares or the mere existence of our arrangement with the Selling Stockholder may make it more difficult for us to sell equity or equity-related securities in the future at a time and at a price that we might otherwise wish to effect such sales.

 

Because the purchase price per share to be paid by the Selling Stockholder for the shares of Common Stock that we may elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, if any, will fluctuate based on the market prices of our Common Stock during the applicable VWAP Purchase Period for each VWAP Purchase and during the applicable Intraday VWAP Purchase Period for each Intraday VWAP Purchase made pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, if any, as of the date of this prospectus it is not possible for us to predict the number of shares of Common Stock that we will sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, the actual purchase price per share to be paid by the Selling Stockholder for those shares, or the actual gross proceeds to be raised by us from those sales, if any. As of July 7, 2022, there were 17,396,697 shares of Common Stock outstanding, of which 15,518,592 shares of Common Stock were held by non-affiliates of the Company. Although the Purchase Agreement provides that we may sell up to an aggregate of $15,000,000 of shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder, only 4,500,000 shares of our Common Stock are being registered for resale under the registration statement that includes this prospectus. If all of the 4,500,000 shares offered for resale by the Selling Stockholder under this prospectus were issued and outstanding as of July 7, 2022, such shares would represent approximately 20.6% of the total number of outstanding shares of our Common Stock, and approximately 22.5% of the total number of outstanding shares of Common Stock held by non-affiliates, in each case as of July 7, 2022.

 

-23-

 

If it becomes necessary for us to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement more shares than are being registered for resale under this prospectus in order to receive aggregate gross proceeds equal to $15,000,000 under the Purchase Agreement, we must first file with the SEC one or more additional registration statements to register under the Securities Act the resale by the Selling Stockholder of any such additional shares of our Common Stock we wish to sell from time to time under the Purchase Agreement, which the SEC must declare effective, in each case before we may elect to sell any additional shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. If it becomes necessary for us to issue and sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement more shares than the Exchange Cap, we must (i) obtain stockholder approval to issue shares of Common Stock in excess of the Exchange Cap under the Purchase Agreement in accordance with applicable Nasdaq rules and (ii) file with the SEC one or more additional registration statements to register under the Securities Act the resale by the Selling Stockholder of any such additional shares of our Common Stock we wish to sell from time to time under the Purchase Agreement, which the SEC must declare effective, in each case before we may elect to sell any additional shares of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement. The number of shares of our Common Stock ultimately offered for sale by the Selling Stockholder is dependent upon the number of shares of Common Stock, if any, we ultimately sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement.

 

The issuance of our Common Stock to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement will not affect the rights or privileges of our existing stockholders, except that the economic and voting interests of each of our existing stockholders will be diluted. Although the number of shares of our Common Stock that our existing stockholders own will not decrease, the shares of our Common Stock owned by our existing stockholders will represent a smaller percentage of our total outstanding shares of our Common Stock after any such issuance.

The number of shares of Common Stock offered by this prospectus may not cover all the shares we ultimately sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement, depending on the purchase price per share. We have included in this column only those shares being offered for resale by the Selling Stockholder under this prospectus, without regard for the Beneficial Ownership Cap. The assumed average purchase prices are solely for illustration and are not intended to be estimates or predictions of future stock performance. Pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5635(d), stockholder approval is required if 20% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock are issued and purchased at a purchase price per share that is less than the shares’ market value, which would occur if the average purchase price per share was less than the Base Price of $1.2175, which explains the difference in share amounts in this column.

DILUTION

 

If you purchase shares in this offering your interest will be diluted immediately to the extent of the difference between the public offering price per share you will pay in this offering and the adjusted net tangible book value per share of our Common Stock immediately following this offering.

 

Net tangible book value per share is determined by dividing our total tangible assets less total tangible liabilities (excluding goodwill and other intangibles) by the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as of the measurement date. Our net tangible book value as of March 31, 2022 was $417,496, and the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock as of July 7, 2022 was 17,396,697. Using our tangible book value as of March 31, 2022 and the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock as of July 7, 2022, our net tangible book value per share would be $0.024.

 

Dilution per share to new investors represents the difference between the public offering price per share paid by investors in this offering and the adjusted net tangible book value per share of Common Stock immediately after giving effect to this offering. Our adjusted net tangible book value is our net tangible book value after giving further effect to the sale of 4,500,000 shares of our Common Stock in this offering by the Selling Stockholder at the assumed public offering price of $1.20 per share, which is the closing price of the Company’s Common Stock on July 7, 2022, as reported by the Nasdaq, and after deducting estimated offering expenses payable by us.

 

The following table illustrates this per share dilution to investors participating in this offering:

 

Assumed public offering price per share

  $ 1.200  

Net tangible book value per share as of March 31, 2022 (using the outstanding share count as of July 7, 2022), before giving effect to the offering

  $ 0.024  

Increase in net tangible book value per share from new investors participating in this offering

  $ 0.242  

Adjusted net tangible book value per share as of March 31, 2022 (using the outstanding share count as of July 7, 2022), after giving effect to the offering

  $ 0.266  

Dilution in net tangible book value per share to investors participating in this offering

  $ 0.958  

 

The information discussed above is illustrative only, and the dilution information following this offering will be adjusted based on the actual public offering price and other terms of this offering determined at pricing. The lower our stock price is at the time we exercise our put right under the Purchase Agreement, the more shares of our Common Stock we will have to issue to the Selling Stockholder to draw down pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. If our stock price decreases during the pricing period, then our existing stockholders will experience further dilution.

BUSINESS

 

You should read the following description of our business with the section titledBusinessin our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and other subsequent filings made with the SEC, which are incorporated by reference into this prospectus, to the extent not otherwise updated by the discussion below.

 

Our Strategy

 

Our strategy is to grow our business organically as well as through acquisitions.

 

Through the acquisitions of Tellenger and Gray Matters in 2021, we began to reposition our legacy professional services business by allocating resources away from third-party product reselling and toward professional services, which management viewed as higher margin, including within the SCM sector. In assessing the Company’s repositioning, management observed cybersecurity practices as evolving toward a zero trust approach, the integration of blockchain as enhancing SCM, and the proliferation of Internet of Things (“IoT”) devices that were taking organizational networks to the edge. Additionally, we have been seeking to purchase other technology companies whose businesses complement the Company’s existing business and whose personnel would better enable us to compete for engagements in our focus areas.

 

To grow organically, we have hired and plan to continue to hire, business development personnel and intend to become more proactive in bidding as a prime contractor on government proposals and in expanding our outreach to larger prime contractors for subcontract and teaming opportunities.

 

In November 2021, we upgraded our listing from the OTCQB to the Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

SELLING STOCKHOLDER

 

This prospectus relates to the offer and sale by B. Riley Principal Capital II of up to 4,500,000 shares of our Common Stock that have been and may be issued by us to B. Riley Principal Capital II under the Purchase Agreement. For additional information regarding the shares of our Common Stock included in this prospectus, see the section titled “Committed Equity Financing” above. We are registering the shares of our Common Stock included in this prospectus pursuant to the provisions of the Registration Rights Agreement we entered into with B. Riley Principal Capital II on July 8, 2022 in order to permit the Selling Stockholder to offer the shares included in this prospectus for resale from time to time. Except for the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement and as set forth in the section titled “Plan of Distribution (Conflict of Interest)” in this prospectus, B. Riley Principal Capital II has not had any material relationship with us within the past three years. As used in this section, the term “Selling Stockholder” means B. Riley Principal Capital II, LLC.

 

-26-

 

The table below presents information regarding the Selling Stockholder and the shares of our Common Stock that may be resold by the Selling Stockholder from time to time under this prospectus. This table is prepared based on information supplied to us by the Selling Stockholder, and reflects holdings as of July 8, 2022. The number of shares in the column “Maximum Number of Shares of Common Stock to be Offered Pursuant to this Prospectus” represents all of the shares of our Common Stock being offered for resale by the Selling Stockholder under this prospectus. The Selling Stockholder may sell some, all or none of the shares being offered for resale in this offering. We do not know how long the Selling Stockholder will hold the shares before selling them and, except as set forth in the section titled “Plan of Distribution (Conflict of Interest)” in this prospectus, we are not aware of any existing arrangements between the Selling Stockholder and any other stockholder, broker, dealer, underwriter or agent relating to the sale or distribution of the shares of our Common Stock being offered for resale by this prospectus.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3(d) promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, and includes shares of our Common Stock with respect to which the Selling Stockholder has sole or shared voting and investment power. The percentage of shares of our Common Stock beneficially owned by the Selling Stockholder prior to the offering shown in the table below is based on an aggregate of 17,396,697 shares of our Common Stock outstanding on July 7, 2022. Because the purchase price to be paid by the Selling Stockholder for shares of our Common Stock, if any, that we may elect to sell to the Selling Stockholder in one or more VWAP Purchases and one or more Intraday VWAP Purchases from time to time under the Purchase Agreement will be determined on the applicable Purchase Dates therefor, the actual number of shares of our Common Stock that we may sell to the Selling Stockholder under the Purchase Agreement may be fewer than the number of shares being offered for resale under this prospectus. The fourth column assumes the resale by the Selling Stockholder of all of the shares of our Common Stock being offered for resale pursuant to this prospectus.

(1) Represents the 89,835 shares of common stock we issued to B. Riley Principal Capital II on July 8, 2022 as Commitment Shares in consideration for entering into the Purchase Agreement with us. In accordance with Rule 13d-3(d) under the Exchange Act, we have excluded from the number of shares beneficially owned prior to the offering all of the shares of our Common Stock that B. Riley Principal Capital II may be required to purchase under the Purchase Agreement, because the issuance of such shares is solely at our discretion and is subject to conditions contained in the Purchase Agreement, the satisfaction of which are entirely outside of B. Riley Principal Capital II’s control, including the registration statement that includes this prospectus becoming and remaining effective. Furthermore, the VWAP Purchases and the Intraday VWAP Purchases of common stock under the Purchase Agreement are subject to certain agreed upon maximum amount limitations set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Also, the Purchase Agreement prohibits us from issuing and selling any shares of our Common Stock to B. Riley Principal Capital II to the extent such shares, when aggregated with all other shares of our Common Stock then beneficially owned by B. Riley Principal Capital II, would cause B. Riley Principal Capital II’s beneficial ownership of our Common Stock to exceed the 4.99% Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The Purchase Agreement also prohibits us from issuing or selling shares of our Common Stock under the Purchase Agreement in excess of the 19.99% Exchange Cap, unless we obtain stockholder approval to do so, or unless sales of our Common Stock are made by us to B. Riley Principal Capital II at a price equal to or greater than $1.2175 per share, such that the Exchange Cap limitation would not apply under applicable Nasdaq rules. Neither the Beneficial Ownership Limitation nor the Exchange Cap (to the extent applicable under Nasdaq rules) may be amended or waived under the Purchase Agreement.

(4) The business address of B. Riley Principal Capital II, LLC (“BRPC II”) is 11100 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 800, Los Angeles, California 90025. BRPC II’s principal business is that of a private investor. The sole member of BRPC II is B. Riley Principal Investments, LLC (“BRPI”), which is an indirect subsidiary of B. Riley Financial, Inc. (“BRF”). An Investment Committee of BRPC II (the “BRPC II Investment Committee”), which is composed of three members appointed by BRPI, has sole voting power and sole investment power over securities beneficially owned, directly, by BRPC II. All decisions with respect to the voting and disposition of securities beneficially owned, directly, by BRPC II are made exclusively by majority vote of the BRPC II Investment Committee, each member of the BRPC II Investment Committee having one vote, and no single member of the BRPC II Investment Committee has any ability to make any such decisions unilaterally or any veto power with respect to decisions that are made by the vote of a majority of the members of the BRPC II Investment Committee. The sole voting and investment powers of the BRPC II Investment Committee over securities beneficially owned, directly, by BRPC II are exercised independently from all other direct and indirect subsidiaries of BRF, and the voting and investment powers over securities beneficially owned directly or indirectly by all other direct and indirect subsidiaries of BRF are exercised independently from BRPC II. We have been advised that neither BRPI nor BRPC II is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) or an independent broker-dealer; however, each of BRPI and BRPC II is an affiliate of B. Riley Securities, Inc. (“BRS”), a registered broker-dealer and FINRA member, and certain officers of BRPC II and certain of the BRPC II Investment Committee members are associated persons of BRS. BRS will act as an executing broker that will effectuate resales of our Common Stock that have been and may be acquired by BRPC II from us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement to the public in this offering. See “Plan of Distribution (Conflict of Interest)” for more information about the relationship between BRPC II and BRS.

 

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION (CONFLICT OF INTEREST)

 

The shares of our Common Stock offered by this prospectus are being offered by the Selling Stockholder, B. Riley Principal Capital II, LLC.  The shares may be sold or distributed from time to time by the Selling Stockholder directly to one or more purchasers or through brokers, dealers, or underwriters who may act solely as agents at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices, at negotiated prices, or at fixed prices, which may be changed. The sale of the shares of our Common Stock offered by this prospectus could be effected in one or more of the following methods:

 

 

ordinary brokers’ transactions; 

 

 

transactions involving cross or block trades; 

 

 

through brokers, dealers, or underwriters who may act solely as agents; 

 

 

“at the market” into an existing market for our Common Stock; 

 

 

in other ways not involving market makers or established business markets, including direct sales to purchasers or sales effected through agents; 

 

 

in privately negotiated transactions; or 

 

 

any combination of the foregoing. 

 

-28-

 

In order to comply with the securities laws of certain states, if applicable, the shares may be sold only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in certain states, the shares may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale in the state or an exemption from the state’s registration or qualification requirement is available and complied with.

 

B. Riley Principal Capital II is an “underwriter” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act.

 

B. Riley Principal Capital II has informed us that it presently anticipates using, but is not required to use, B. Riley Securities, Inc. (“BRS”), a registered broker-dealer and FINRA member and an affiliate of B. Riley Principal Capital II, as a broker to effectuate resales, if any, of our Common Stock that it may acquire from us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, and that it may also engage one or more other registered broker-dealers to effectuate resales, if any, of such Common Stock that it may acquire from us. Such resales will be made at prices and at terms then prevailing or at prices related to the then current market price. Each such registered broker-dealer will be an underwriter within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act. B. Riley Principal Capital II has informed us that each such broker-dealer it engages to effectuate resales of our Common Stock on its behalf, excluding BRS, may receive commissions from B. Riley Principal Capital II for executing such resales for B. Riley Principal Capital II and, if so, such commissions will not exceed customary brokerage commissions.

 

B. Riley Principal Capital II is an affiliate of BRS, a registered broker-dealer and FINRA member, which will act as an executing broker that will effectuate resales of our Common Stock that have been and may be acquired by B. Riley Principal Capital II from us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement to the public in this offering. Because B. Riley Principal Capital II will receive all the net proceeds from such resales of our Common Stock made to the public through BRS, BRS is deemed to have a “conflict of interest” within the meaning of FINRA Rule 5121. Consequently this offering will be conducted in compliance with the provisions of FINRA Rule 5121, which requires that a “qualified independent underwriter,” as defined by FINRA participate in the preparation of the registration statement and exercise the usual standard of “due diligence” with respect to such document. We have engaged Northland Securities, Inc. to be the qualified independent underwriter and participate in the preparation of the registration statement and exercise the usual standards of “due diligence” in respect thereto. B. Riley Principal Capital II  has agreed to pay a fee of $50,000 upon the effectiveness of this registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part in consideration for its services and expenses as the qualified independent underwriter. Northland Securities, Inc. will receive no other compensation.  Consequently, this offering will be conducted in compliance with the provisions of FINRA Rule 5121. In accordance with FINRA Rule 5121, BRS is not permitted to sell shares of our Common Stock in this offering to an account over which it exercises discretionary authority without the prior specific written approval of the account holder.

 

Except as set forth above, we know of no existing arrangements between the Selling Stockholder and any other stockholder, broker, dealer, underwriter or agent relating to the sale or distribution of the shares of our Common Stock offered by this prospectus.

 

Brokers, dealers, underwriters or agents participating in the distribution of the shares of our Common Stock offered by this prospectus may receive compensation in the form of commissions, discounts, or concessions from the purchasers, for whom the broker-dealers may act as agent, of the shares sold by the Selling Stockholder through this prospectus. The compensation paid to any such particular broker-dealer by any such purchasers of shares of our Common Stock sold by the Selling Stockholder may be less than or in excess of customary commissions.  Neither we nor the Selling Stockholder can presently estimate the amount of compensation that any agent will receive from any purchasers of shares of our Common Stock sold by the Selling Stockholder.

 

We may from time to time file with the SEC one or more supplements to this prospectus or amendments to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part to amend, supplement or update information contained in this prospectus, including, if and when required under the Securities Act, to disclose certain information relating to a particular sale of shares offered by this prospectus by the Selling Stockholder, including with respect to any compensation paid or payable by the Selling Stockholder to any brokers, dealers, underwriters or agents that participate in the distribution of such shares by the Selling Stockholder, and any other related information required to be disclosed under the Securities Act.

 

We will pay the expenses incident to the registration under the Securities Act of the offer and sale of the shares of our Common Stock covered by this prospectus by the Selling Stockholder.

 

-29-

 

As consideration for its irrevocable commitment to purchase our Common Stock under the Purchase Agreement, we have agreed to issue to B. Riley Principal Capital II 89,835 shares of our Common Stock as Initial Commitment Shares, which Initial Commitment Shares have a total aggregate value equal to 0.75% of B. Riley Principal Capital’s $15,000,000 total dollar amount purchase commitment under the Purchase Agreement (assuming a purchase price of $1.2523 per Commitment Share, representing the arithmetic average of the volume weighted average price per share of the five-consecutive trading days ending on the trading day immediately preceding the date of the Purchase Agreement), upon execution of the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement. In accordance with FINRA Rule 5110, the 89,835 Initial Commitment Shares are deemed to be underwriting compensation in connection with sales of our Common Stock by B. Riley Principal Capital II to the public.  In addition to the issuance of the Initial Commitment Shares, on the earlier of (i) the trading day on which the Company has received from the Selling Stockholder total aggregate proceeds equal to $500,000 as payment for all VWAP Purchase share amounts and Intraday VWAP Purchase share amounts purchased by the Selling Stockholder in all VWAP Purchases, Additional VWAP Purchases and Intraday VWAP Purchases, and (ii) 90 days from the date of the Purchase Agreement, the Company will issue to the Selling Stockholder up to 29,945 shares of Common Stock (the “Additional Commitment Shares”). The total amount of compensation to be received by the Selling Stockholder in connection with the offering will not exceed 8.0% of B. Riley Principal Capital's $15,000,000 total dollar amount purchase commitment under the Purchase Agreement. The Additional Commitment Shares have been deemed compensation by FINRA and are therefore subject to a 180-day lock-up pursuant to Rule 5110(e)(1)(A) of FINRA. The Selling Stockholder will not sell, transfer, assign, pledge, or hypothecate the Additional Commitment Shares, nor will it engage in any hedging, short sale, derivative, put, or call transaction that would result in the effective economic disposition of the Additional Commitment Shares for a period of 180 days from the date of the commencement of sales of this offering. In accordance with FINRA Rule 5110 these reimbursed fees and expenses are deemed to be underwriting compensation in connection with sales of our Common Stock by B. Riley Principal Capital II to the public.

 

We also have agreed to indemnify B. Riley Principal Capital II and certain other persons against certain liabilities in connection with the offering of shares of our Common Stock offered hereby, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act or, if such indemnity is unavailable, to contribute amounts required to be paid in respect of such liabilities.  B. Riley Principal Capital II has agreed to indemnify us against liabilities under the Securities Act that may arise from certain written information furnished to us by B. Riley Principal Capital II specifically for use in this prospectus or, if such indemnity is unavailable, to contribute amounts required to be paid in respect of such liabilities. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to our directors, officers, and controlling persons, we have been advised that in the opinion of the SEC this indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore, unenforceable.

 

We estimate that the total expenses for the offering will be approximately $194,500.

 

B. Riley Principal Capital II has represented to us that at no time prior to the date of the Purchase Agreement has B. Riley Principal Capital II, its sole member, any of their respective officers, or any entity managed or controlled by B. Riley Principal Capital II or its sole member, engaged in or effected, in any manner whatsoever, directly or indirectly, for its own account or for the account of any of its affiliates, any short sale (as such term is defined in Rule 200 of Regulation SHO of the Exchange Act) of our Common Stock or any hedging transaction, which establishes a net short position with respect to our Common Stock.  B. Riley Principal Capital II has agreed that during the term of the Purchase Agreement, none of B. Riley Principal Capital II, its sole member, any of their respective officers, or any entity managed or controlled by B. Riley Principal Capital II or its sole member, will enter into or effect, directly or indirectly, any of the foregoing transactions for its own account or for the account of any other such person or entity.

 

We have advised the Selling Stockholder that it is required to comply with Regulation M promulgated under the Exchange Act. With certain exceptions, Regulation M precludes the Selling Stockholder, any affiliated purchasers, and any broker-dealer or other person who participates in the distribution from bidding for or purchasing, or attempting to induce any person to bid for or purchase any security which is the subject of the distribution until the entire distribution is complete. Regulation M also prohibits any bids or purchases made in order to stabilize the price of a security in connection with the distribution of that security. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the securities offered by this prospectus.

 

This offering will terminate on the date that all shares of our Common Stock offered by this prospectus have been sold by the Selling Stockholder.

 

Our Common Stock is currently listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “WAVD”.

 

B. Riley Principal Capital II and/or one or more of its affiliates has provided, currently provides and/or from time to time in the future may provide various investment banking and other financial services for us and/or one or more of our affiliates that are unrelated to the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and the offering of shares for resale by B. Riley Principal Capital II to which this prospectus relates, for which investment banking and other financial services they have received and may continue to receive customary fees, commissions and other compensation from us, aside from any discounts, fees and other compensation that B. Riley Principal Capital II has received and may receive in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, including the Commitment Shares we have agreed to issue to B. Riley Principal Capital II as consideration for its irrevocable commitment to purchase shares of our Common Stock from us under the Purchase Agreement, the 5.0% fixed discount to current market prices of our Common Stock reflected in the purchase prices payable by B. Riley Principal Capital II for our Common Stock that we may require it to purchase from us from time to time under the Purchase Agreement, and our payment of $125,000 to B. Riley Principal Capital II legal fees in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of the transaction documents and legal due diligence of the Company.

Item 14. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

 

Subsection (a) of Section 145 of the DGCL empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or who is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation), by reason of the fact that the person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe the person’s conduct was unlawful.

 
II-1

 

Subsection (b) of Section 145 empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor, by reason of the fact that the person acted in any of the capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Court of Chancery or the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.

 

Section 145 further provides that to the extent a director or officer of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith; that indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; and the indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall, unless otherwise provided when authorized or ratified, continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of such person’s heirs, executors and administrators. Section 145 also empowers the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of his status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liabilities under Section 145.

 

Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL provides that a corporation’s certificate of incorporation may contain a provision eliminating or limiting the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, provided that such provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the DGCL, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

 

Additionally, our Charter limits the liability of our directors to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, and our Bylaws provide that we will indemnify them to the fullest extent permitted by such law. Any claims for indemnification by our directors and officers may reduce our available funds to satisfy successful third-party claims against us and may reduce the amount of money available to us.

On December 10, 2021, the Company sold 3,289,526 units for total proceeds of $10,000,000, resulting in the issuance of 3,289,526 shares of common stock and 657,933 Series A warrants exercisable for a like number of shares of common stock. The warrants are exercisable at a price of $4.50 per share, with the warrants exercisable from January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2026. If the shares underlying the warrants are not registered when the warrants become exercisable, the warrants can be exercised on a cashless basis. The warrants are subject to redemption at a price of $0.001 per warrant, if commencing January 1, 2024, the volume weighted average price per share for 10 consecutive trading days equals or exceeds $12.50. The company reserves the right to require the warrants to be exercised on a cashless basis following any notice of redemption. No placement fees or commissions were paid in connection with the offering.  The Company relied upon Rule 506(b) of Regulation D in issuing these shares and warrants. 657,933 shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of warrants in connection with the offering have been reserved for issuance.

 

On December 10, 2021, the Company issued 436,481 shares of its common stock at a price of $3.4366 for total proceeds of $1,500,000 as partial consideration of the payment of the purchase price for the acquisition of the shares of Gray Matters, Inc.

Item 17. Undertakings.

 

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

(i) To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

(ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement.

 

(iii) To include material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (1)(i), (1)(ii) and (1)(iii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.

 

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(4) That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

 

II-5

 

(5) That, for the purpose of determining liability of the undersigned Registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned Registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned Registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

(i) Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned Registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

(ii) Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned Registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned Registrant;

 

(iii) The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned Registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned Registrant; and

 

(iv) Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned Registrant to the purchaser.

 

(6) That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(7) That, insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
