Investor Relations Agreement
Effective January 13, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with a vendor (“IR Firm”) to provide investor relations services to the Company. Pursuant to the agreement, in addition to monthly cash compensation of $8,000 per month, on March 27, 2014 the Company issued to the IR firm a consulting warrant (“IR Consulting Warrant”) for the purchase of 36,000 shares of common stock. The IR Consulting Warrant has a strike price of $7.80, representing 130% of the IPO price. The IR Consulting Warrant had an initial catch up vesting equivalent to 3,000 shares per month of service, partial months to be prorated on a thirty (30) day basis, from the effective date of this agreement until March 27, 2014. Thereafter, the IR Consulting Warrant vested at a rate of 3,000 shares per month of service. In addition, the Company agreed to issue to the IR Firm incentive warrants (“IR Incentive Warrants”) to purchase 5,000 shares of common stock with a strike price of $7.80 in the event of and upon each qualified investor, institutional or brokerage firm purchasing at least $250,000 in value of the Company’s common shares at the IPO price or greater in the open market on or after the 46th day following March 27, 2014. All IR Incentive Warrants granted during a six month period will collectively vest at each six month anniversary. Both the IR Consulting Warrant and IR Incentive Warrants will have an expiration date four (4) years from the grant date. The shares underlying both the IR Consulting Warrant and the IR Incentive Warrants will either be registered at the next available opportunity or the warrants will include a cashless exercise provision.
As of December 31, 2014, 34,800 shares under the IR Consulting Warrant were vested.
As of December 31, 2014 a total of 15,000 IR Incentive Warrants were deemed to have vested. Accordingly as of December 31, 2014, the Company recorded the accrued value of the IR Incentive Warrant of approximately $92,000 in general and administrative expenses, since the Company does not record stock-based compensation until the associated warrant is approved by the Board of Directors and issued. On February 26, 2015, the Board of Directors approved the issuance of a warrant to purchase 15,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.
For the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company incurred stock-based compensation expense of $263,972 in connection with the IR Consulting warrant, which was included in general and administrative expense.
On October 4, 2013, the Company executed a lease expiring on June 4, 2014 for 3,562 square feet of office space in Pleasanton, California from an affiliate of Greg Brewer, one of the Company’s former directors, with a base rent of $6,055 per month. The lease was amended and extended to September 30, 2014 with a base monthly rent of $8,548 for the period June 5, 2014 through September 30, 2014.
On September 10, 2014, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease”) with Balzer Family Investments, L.P. (the “Landlord”) related to space located at Northpointe Business Center, 3590 North First Street, San Jose, California. The initial term of the lease is 60 months, with initial monthly base rent of $36,720. On October 1, 2014, the Company relocated its headquarters to this new location. The Company issued to the Landlord 41,563 shares of the Company’s common stock valued at $500,000, of which $400,000 will be applied to reduce the Company’s monthly base rent obligation by $6,732 per month and of which $100,000 was for certain tenant improvements. The Company recorded $400,000 as prepaid rent on its balance sheet, which will be amortized over the term of the lease and recorded $100,000 as leasehold improvements.
The future minimum lease payments are as follows:
