Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 7, 2021, Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with B. Riley Securities, Inc. (the “Underwriter”) in connection with a public offering (the “Offering”) of 1,875,000 of the Company’s common shares, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Shares”), at a price to the public of $7.20 per share. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Underwriter agreed to buy, on an underwritten firm commitment basis, 1,875,000 Common Shares. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriter a 30-day option to purchase from the Company up to an additional 281,250 Common Shares at the same public offering price per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions, to cover over allotments, if any.
B. Riley Securities, Inc. was the sole book-running manager for the Offering. The Offering is expected to close on July 9, 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
In connection with the Offering, the Underwriter agreed to purchase the Common Shares at a price of $6.696 per share (or 93% of the public offering price per share), and the Company agreed to reimburse certain other expenses of the Underwriter.
The net proceeds to the Company are expected to be approximately $12.3 million, assuming no exercise of the over-allotment option and after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated expenses payable by the Company associated with the Offering. The Offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-256396), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 1, 2021. A prospectus supplement relating to the Offering will be filed with the SEC.
The foregoing description of the Offering is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Underwriting Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and which is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other Federal securities laws. Because such statements deal with future events and are based on the Company’s current expectations, they are subject to various risks and uncertainties and actual results, performance or achievements of the Company could differ materially from those described in or implied by the statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K. For example, forward-looking statements include statements regarding the potential exercise by the Underwriter of its over-allotment option to purchase of additional Common Shares, the successful closing of the Offering and planned net proceeds from the Offering. The forward-looking statements contained or implied in this Current Report on Form 8-K are subject to other risks and uncertainties, including market conditions and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions related to the Offering, and other risk factors discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the SEC and in subsequent filings with the SEC. Except as otherwise required by law, the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events or circumstances or otherwise.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized.
