Sharps Technology Announces Pricing of Initial Public Offering
NEW YORK, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sharps Technology, Inc. (the “Company”), an innovative medical device company offering patented, best-in-class, single use smart safety syringe products, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 3,750,000 common units. Each common unit is being offered at a public offering price per common unit of $4.25 and consists of one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 and two warrants, to purchase one share of common stock for each whole warrant, with an initial exercise price of $4.25 per share. The gross proceeds of the offering are expected to be approximately $16 million before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. The offering is expected to close on April 19, 2022, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
In addition, the Company has granted Aegis Capital Corp. (“Aegis”) a 45-day option to purchase up to such number of (i) additional shares of common stock equal to 15% of number of units sold in the offering, and/or (ii) additional warrants equal to 15% of the number of warrants underlying units sold in the offering, in each case solely to cover over-allotments, if any. The purchase price to be paid per additional share of common stock will be equal to the public offering price of one common unit less the purchase price for the two warrants included within the common unit, as applicable, less the underwriting discount. The purchase price to be paid per additional warrant will be $0.01. If Aegis exercises the option to purchase only such warrants, additional proceeds will be nominal.
