|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities|
On December 27, 2012, American Strategic Minerals Corporation (the “Company”) sold an aggregate of 1,026,609 units (the “Units”) with gross proceeds to the Company of $821,287.20 to certain accredited investors (the “Investors”) pursuant to a subscription agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”).
Each Unit was sold for a purchase price of $0.80 per Unit and consists of: (i) two shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”) and (ii) a five-year warrant (the “Warrants”) to purchase an additional share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.60 per share, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events such as stock splits and dividends. The sale of Units includes the conversion of unpaid salaries and certain outstanding amounts for unpaid fees and expenses into Units at the per Unit offering price totalling $123,287.
The Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis. The Warrants contains limitations on the holder’s ability to exercise the Warrant in the event such exercise causes the holder to beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock, subject to a discretionary increase in such limitation by the holder to 9.99% upon 61 days’ notice.
Pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement with the Investors, the Company has agreed to file a “resale” registration statement with the SEC covering all shares of the Common Stock and shares underlying the warrants within 90 days of the final closing date of the sale of Units (the “Filing Date”) and to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement until all securities have been sold or are otherwise able to be sold pursuant to Rule 144. The Company has agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to have the registration statement declared effective within 90 days of the Filing Date (the “Effectiveness Date”). The Company is obligated to pay to Investors a fee of 1% per month in cash for every thirty day period up to a maximum of 6%, (i) that the registration statement has not been filed and (ii) following the Effectiveness Date that the registration statement has not been declared effective; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to pay any such liquidated damages if the Company is unable to fulfill its registration obligations as a result of rules, regulations, positions or releases issued or actions taken by the SEC pursuant to its authority with respect to “Rule 415”, provided the Company registers at such time the maximum number of shares of common stock permissible upon consultation with the staff of the SEC.
The Company paid placement agent fees of $5,000 in cash to a broker-dealer in connection with the sale of the Units.
The foregoing is not a complete summary of the terms of the offering described in this Item 3.02 and reference is made to the complete text of the Subscription Agreement, the Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreement, attached, respectively, as Exhibits 10.1-10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and hereby incorporated by reference.
The Units were issued to “accredited investors,” as such term is defined in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and were offered and sold in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(2) and Regulation D (Rule 506) under the Securities Act of 1933 and corresponding provisions of state securities laws.
