Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 8, 2021, MIND Technology, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. (the “Underwriter”), relating to the issuance and sale by the Company to the Underwriter (the “Offering”) of an aggregate of 432,00 shares of the Company’s Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the “Preferred Stock”), at a price to the public of $24.25 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Underwriter was granted an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) for a period of 30 days to purchase from the Company up to an additional 64,800 shares of Preferred Stock, at the same price per share, to cover over-allotments, if any.
The material terms of the Offering are described in the final prospectus dated November 9, 2021 (the “Prospectus”) as filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) on November 10, 2021. The Offering is registered with the SEC pursuant to an effective registration statement, as amended to date, on Form S-1 (File No. 333-260486) filed by the Company under the Securities Act with the SEC on October 25, 2021, and a registration statement on Form S-1 MEF (File No. 333-260886) filed by the Company under the Securities Act with the SEC on November 8, 2021.
In the Underwriting Agreement, the Company made customary representations, warranties and covenants concerning the Company and the registration statement, and also agreed to indemnify the Underwriter against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. In addition, the Company and its officers and directors have agreed not to offer, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any shares of Preferred Stock, the Company’s common stock, or securities convertible into, or exercisable or exchangeable for, shares of Preferred stock or common stock, during the 90-day period following the date of the Prospectus.
The Offering is expected to close on November 12, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. The Company expects to receive net proceeds (net of underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses) from the Offering of approximately $9.5 million. As described in the Prospectus, the Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes, which may include, among other things, repayment of indebtedness, future acquisitions, the financing of capital expenditures and additions to its working capital, such as purchases of inventory.
The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
The Company issued a press release (the “Launch Press Release”) on November 8, 2021 announcing the launch of the Offering. A copy of the Launch Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Company issued a press release (the “Pricing Press Release”) on November 9, 2021 announcing the pricing of the Offering. A copy of the Pricing Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The information included herein and in Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act.
