|Note 4 - Stockholders' Equity||
Under the Company's Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Company was authorized to issue a total of 150,000,000 shares of Common Stock.
On January 5, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors approved an amendment to its Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the shares of Common Stock that are authorized for issuance by 450,000,000 shares, bringing the total number of common shares authorized for issuance to 600,000,000.
The approval of the Amendment required the consent of no less than at least a majority of the voting power of the Company. Theorem Group, LLC owns, in addition to other of our securities, 25,000 shares of Series H Convertible Preferred Stock. The Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of the Series H Convertible Preferred Stock provides that each outstanding share of Series H Convertible Preferred Stock entitles the holder thereof to a number of votes equal to (A) the number of shares of Common Stock that such share of preferred stock could, at such time, be converted into (B) multiplied by 100. The Series H Convertible Preferred Stock is currently convertible into 2,500,000 shares of Common Stock. Accordingly, Theorem Group, LLC has the voting power of 250,000,000 shares, which represents more than a majority of voting power of all of the Company's outstanding voting shares. Theorem Group, LLC approved the Amendment on January 5, 2011 by an action taken by written consent. The amendment was filed with the Delaware Secretary of State in February 2011.
Each share of common stock is entitled to one vote at the Company's annual meeting of stockholders.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company issued a total of 160,107,475 and 61,831,683 shares of common stock, respectively for retirement of debt valued at $2,382,281 and $1,144,000, respectively.
The 96,230 shares of Series C preferred stock are convertible into 27,800 shares of the Company's common stock at the option of the holders at any time. The conversion ratio is based on the average closing bid price of the common stock for the fifteen consecutive trading days ending on the date immediately preceding the date notice of conversion is given, but cannot be less than .20 or more than .2889 common shares for each Series C preferred share. The conversion ratio may be adjusted under certain circumstances such as stock splits or stock dividends. The Company has the right to automatically convert the Series C preferred stock into common stock if the Company lists its shares of common stock on the Nasdaq National Market and the average closing bid price of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq National Market for 15 consecutive trading days exceeds $13.00. Each share of Series C preferred stock is entitled to the number of votes equal to .26 divided by the average closing bid price of the Company's common stock during the fifteen consecutive trading days immediately prior to the date such shares of Series C preferred stock were purchased. In the event of liquidation, the holders of the Series C preferred stock shall participate on an equal basis with the holders of the common stock (as if the Series C preferred stock had converted into common stock) in any distribution of any of the assets or surplus funds of the Company. The holders of Series C preferred stock are entitled to noncumulative dividends if and when declared by the Company's board of directors. No dividends to Series C preferred stockholders were issued or unpaid through September 30, 2012.
On December 4, 2008, the Company entered into and closed an Agreement (the Bristol Agreement) with Bristol Investment Fund, Ltd. pursuant to which Bristol agreed to cancel the debt payable by the Company to Bristol in the amount of approximately $20,000 in consideration of the Company issuing Bristol 25,000 shares of Series G Convertible Preferred Stock, which such shares carry a stated value equal to $1.00 per share (the Series G Stock).
The Series G Stock is convertible, at any time at the option of the holder, into common shares of the Company based on a conversion price equal to the lesser of $.01 or 60% of the average of the three lowest trading prices occurring at any time during the 20 trading days preceding the conversion. The Series G Stock, as amended, shall have voting rights on an as converted basis multiplied by 100.
In the event of any liquidation or winding up of the Company, the holders of Series G Stock will be entitled to receive, in preference to holders of common stock, an amount equal to the stated value plus interest of 15% per year.
The Series G Stock restricts the ability of the holder to convert the Series G Stock and receive shares of the Companys common stock such that the number of shares of the Company common stock held by Bristol and its affiliates after such conversion does not exceed 4.9% of the Companys then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.
The Series G Stock was previously referred to in an 8-K filed by the Company on December 10, 2008 in error as the Series E Stock. Further, the Series G Stock initially incorrectly provided that it voted on an as converted basis multiplied by 10. This incorrectly reflected the intent of the Company and the holder.
On October 13, 2009, the Company was informed by Theorem Group, LLC that it had purchased all of the outstanding Series G Preferred Stock and Theorem gave notice to the Company that it intended to exercise its ability to vote on all shareholder matters utilizing the super voting privileges provided by the Series G Stock.
Effective February 10, 2010, the Company issued 25,000 shares of its new Series H Convertible Preferred Stock (the Series H Preferred) to Theorem Group, LLC, a California limited liability company (the Stockholder), in exchange for the 25,000 shares of Series G Stock then owned by the Stockholder. The foregoing exchange was effected pursuant to that certain Exchange Agreement, dated February 10, 2010, between the Company and the Stockholder (the Exchange Agreement).
The Certificate of Designation of the Series H Preferred is based on, and substantially similar to the form and substance of the Certificate of Designation of the Series G Preferred. Some of the corrections, changes and differences between the Certificate of Designation of the Series G Preferred and the Certificate of Designation of the Series H Preferred include the following:
On November 8, 2010, Gemini Pharmaceuticals purchased 1,666,667 shares of the Companys Series I Preferred Stock, $.001 par value, at a price of $0.15 per share ($250,000).
As the holder of the Series I Preferred Stock, Gemini Pharmaceuticals will be entitled to receive, out of funds legally available, dividends in cash at the annual rate of 8.0% of the Preference Amount ($0.15), when, as, and if declared by the Board. No dividends or other distributions shall be made with respect to any shares of junior stock until dividends in the same amount per share on the Series I Preferred Stock shall have been declared and paid or set apart during that fiscal year. Dividends on the Series I Preferred Stock shall not be cumulative and no right shall accrue to the Series I Preferred Stock by reason of the fact that the Company may fail to declare or pay dividends on the Series I Preferred Stock in the amount of the Dividend Rate per share or in any amount in any previous fiscal year of the Company, whether or not the earnings of the Company in that previous fiscal year were sufficient to pay such dividends in whole or in part.
Each share of Series I Preferred Stock shall entitle the holder thereof to such number of votes per share as shall equal the number of shares of Common Stock (rounded to the nearest whole number) into which such share of Series I Preferred Stock is then convertible.
Upon any liquidation of the Company, subject to the rights of any series of Preferred Stock that may from time to time come into existence, before any distribution or payment shall be made to the holders of any Junior Stock, the holders of the shares of Series I Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to receive and be paid out of the assets of the Company legally available for distribution to its stockholders liquidating distributions in cash or property at its fair market value as determined by the Board in the amount of $0.15 per share (as adjusted for any stock dividends, combinations or splits with respect to such shares).
Shares of Series I Preferred Stock may, at the option of the holder thereof, be converted at any time or from time to time into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock. The number of shares of Common Stock which a holder of shares of Series I Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive upon conversion of such shares shall be the product obtained by multiplying the Conversion Rate by the number of shares of Series I Preferred Stock being converted. Initially, the Series I Preferred Stock is convertible into 1,666,667 shares of common stock.
In the event that the per-share Market Price of the Common Stock over a period of 20 consecutive trading days is equal to at least 130% of the initial conversion price (130% of $0.15), all outstanding shares of Series I Preferred Stock shall be converted automatically into the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series I Preferred Stock are then convertible without any further action by the holders of such shares and whether or not the certificates representing such shares of Series I Preferred Stock are surrendered to the Company or its transfer agent.
