Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. (the “Company”) agreed to the conversion of its outstanding 8% convertible notes (collectively, the “Notes”) pursuant to a resolution of its two disinterested directors at $1.90 per share, which was the offering price in its recently closed public offering (the “Offering”). Following the closing of the Offering, the initial $500,000 Note held by the Company’s Chairman was converted on May 10, 2018. On May 18, 2018 the remaining Notes were converted including a $500,000 note held by an entity in which the Chairman is a director and a $1 million Note held by Opko Health, Inc., a public company in which three of the Company’s directors serve as directors and one of the three is Chief Executive Officer of Opko Health, Inc. The terms of the Notes were disclosed in the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed on December 1, 2017 and February 6, 2018 (the “Previous Reports”). The description of the Notes is incorporated herein by reference to Item 3.02 of each of the Previous Reports.


As a result of these Note conversions, the Company has no debt.


The Company issued a total of 1,085,105 shares of common stock upon conversion of the Notes. The number of shares was based on the principal amount of the Notes and the amount of interest accrued on the Notes. Prior to the amendment of the Notes, they were due in November 2019 and January 2020 subject to prior conversion at $8.10 per share or the offering price in a $10 million equity financing.


The issuance of common stock upon the conversion was exempt from registration pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933.






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.
