Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On October 30, 2019, Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp., as representative of the underwriters identified therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell 3,529,412 shares of common stock, at a public offering price of $0.85 per share (the “Offering”). Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 529,411 shares of common stock solely to cover over-allotments, if any. The Company expects to receive approximately $2.6 million in net proceeds from the Offering (excluding the over-allotment option), after deducting underwriting discounts and estimated offering expenses.


The shares are being offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-220632), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 10, 2017, and the base prospectus included therein, as amended and supplemented by the preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on October 30, 2019, and the final prospectus supplement expected to be filed with the SEC on October 31, 2019.


The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, and termination and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature. Certain of the Company’s executive officers, directors and 5% beneficial owners have also agreed not to sell or transfer any securities of the Company held by them for a period of 180 days, from November 4, 2019, subject to limited exceptions.
