Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 21, 2021, America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (the “Partnership”) entered into a Capital on DemandTM Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with JonesTrading Institutional Services LLC, as agent (“JonesTrading”), pursuant to which the Partnership may offer and sell, from time to time through JonesTrading, beneficial unit certificates representing assigned limited partnership interests (“Units” or “BUCs”) in the Partnership, having an aggregate offering price of up to $30 million.
Under the Sales Agreement, JonesTrading may sell the Units by any method permitted by law and deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Partnership may instruct JonesTrading not to sell Units if the sales cannot be effected at or above the price designated by the Partnership from time to time.
The Partnership is not obligated to make any sales of the Units under the Sales Agreement. The offering of Units pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the issuance and sale of all Units subject to the Sales Agreement; or (ii) the termination of the Sales Agreement as permitted therein.
The Partnership will pay JonesTrading a commission rate equal to 2.0% of the aggregate gross sales price of the Units sold. The Partnership has also agreed to reimburse JonesTrading for certain specified expenses, including the fees and disbursements of its legal counsel, in an amount not to exceed $35,000, as provided in the Sales Agreement. The Partnership also has agreed to provide JonesTrading with customary indemnification and contribution rights. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Partnership has agreed to reimburse JonesTrading for the documented fees and costs of its legal counsel reasonably incurred in connection with the review and preparation of the deliverables arising from the transactions contemplated by the Sales Agreement in an amount not to exceed $10,000 per calendar year.
