We are offering upto                shares of common stock, together with warrants, or the Series A warrants, to purchase upto                shares of common stock at an assumed combined public offering price of $        per share and Series A warrant,which is equal to the last reported sale price per share of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on                 , 2022, pursuant to this prospectus. Theshares of common stock and Series A warrants will be separately issued, but the shares of common stock and Series A warrants will be issued to purchasers in the ratio of one to one. Each Series A warrant will have an exercise price of$        per share, will be exercisable upon issuance and will expire five years from the date of issuance.

Weare also offering up to                pre-funded warrants, or the Series B pre-fundedwarrants (and collectively with the Series A warrants, the “warrants”), to those purchasers whose purchase of shares of common stock in this offering would result in the purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties,beneficially owning more than 4.99% (or, at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%) of our outstanding common stock following the consummation of this offering in lieu of the shares of our common stock that would result in ownership in excess of 4.99%(or, at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%). Each Series B pre-funded warrant will be exercisable for one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.01 per share. Each Series B pre-funded warrant is being issued together with the same Series A warrant described above being issued with each share of common stock. The assumed combined public offering price for each such Series B pre-funded warrant, together with the Series A warrant, is $        , which is equal to the last reported sale price of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Marketon                , 2022 less the $0.01 per share exercise price of each such Series B pre-funded warrant. Each Series B pre-funded warrant will be exercisable upon issuance and may be exercised at any time until all of the pre-funded warrants are exercised in full. The Series B pre-funded warrants and Series A warrants are immediately separable and will be issued separately in this offering.

There is no established public trading market for the warrants, and we do not expect a market to develop. We do not intend to apply for listing of thewarrants on any securities exchange or other nationally recognized trading system. Without an active trading market, the liquidity of the warrants will be limited.

We have engaged H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, or the placement agent, to act as our exclusive placement agent in connection with this offering. Theplacement agent has agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to arrange for the sale of the securities offered by this prospectus. The placement agent is not purchasing or selling any of the securities we are offering and the placement agent is notrequired to arrange the purchase or sale of any specific number of securities or dollar amount. We have agreed to pay to the placement agent the placement agent fees set forth in the table below, which assumes that we sell all of the securitiesoffered by this prospectus. There is no

arrangement for funds to be received in escrow, trust or similar arrangement. There is no minimum offering requirement. We will bear all costs associated with the offering. See “Plan ofDistribution” on page 26 of this prospectus for more information regarding these arrangements.

Our common stock is listed on the Nasdaq CapitalMarket under the symbol “BXRX.” On            , 2022, the last reported sale price of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market was$        per share. All share, Series A warrant, and Series B pre-funded warrant numbers are based on an assumed combined public offering price of$        per share or Series B pre-funded warrant, as applicable, and Series A warrant.

The combined public offering price per share and Series A warrant and the combined public offering price per Series Bpre-funded warrant and Series A warrant will be determined between us and investors based on market conditions at the time of pricing, and may be at a discount to the current market price of our common stock.Therefore, the recent market price used throughout this prospectus may not be indicative of the actual public offering price.

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

This summary highlights information contained in other parts of this prospectus and in the documents we incorporate by reference. Because it is only asummary, it does not contain all of the information that you should consider before investing in our securities and it is qualified in its entirety by, and should be read in conjunction with, the more detailed information appearing elsewhere in thisprospectus, any applicable free writing prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference herein. You should read all such documents carefully, especially the risk factors and our consolidated financial statements and the related notes includedor incorporated by reference herein, before deciding to buy our securities.

Overview

Weare a pharmaceutical company primarily focused on innovative products for hospital and related acute care settings. We believe that we can bring valuable therapeutic options for patients, prescribers and payers to the hospital and related acute caremarkets.

In mid-2020, we launched our first commercial product, ANJESO® (meloxicam) injection, or ANJESO, in the United States. ANJESO is the first and only 24-hour, intravenous, or IV, analgesic agent. ANJESO is a COX-2 preferential, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, or NSAID, for the management of moderate to severe pain, which can be administered alone or incombination with other non-NSAID analgesics. Because of delayed onset of analgesia, ANJESO alone is not recommended for use when rapid onset of analgesia is required. We have successfully completedthree Phase III clinical trials, including two pivotal efficacy trials, a large double-blind Phase III safety trial and a Phase IIIb program evaluating ANJESO and its health economic impact in specific surgical settings.

We utilize our internal field team and collaborate with contracted third parties, to market ANJESO to health care professionals at key targeted institutionsfor the commercialization of ANJESO in the United States. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, established a unique J-code for ANJESO in the fourth quarter of 2020. ANJESO has transitionalpass-through status under traditional Medicare plans for a period of 3 years. We have also entered into agreements with leading group purchasing organizations in the United States, including Vizient Inc., Premier Inc. and HealthTrust, as well as oneof the top three integrated delivery networks that serves over twelve million patients nationwide, for availability of ANJESO to their member institutions and with a leading operator of surgical facilities and ancillary services nationally, withover 150 locations nationwide. In addition, ANJESO is currently approved for use within the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, Indian Health Service, 340B covered entities, and multiple state Medicaid programs. We arecontinuing to evaluate strategic partnerships for the commercialization of ANJESO both in the United States and outside the United States.

In addition toANJESO, we have a pipeline of other innovative pharmaceutical assets including two novel neuromuscular blocking agents, or NMBAs, and Dex-IN, a proprietary intranasal formulation of dexmedetomidine, or Dex,an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist that we are evaluating for possible partnering.

RisksAssociated with this Offering

-4-


Table of Contents
  

Our business has incurred significant losses and we may continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeablefuture.

There is no public market for the warrants being offered in this offering.

 

  

The holders of warrants purchased in this offering will have no rights as common shareholders until such holdersexercise their warrants and acquires our common shares, except as set forth in the warrants.

Implications of Being an Emerging Growth Company

We are an “emerging growth company” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, as amended, or JOBS Act. We will remain anemerging growth company until December 31, 2024, unless our gross revenue exceeds $1.07 billion in any fiscal year before that date, we issue more than $1.0 billion of non-convertible debt inany three-year period before that date or the market value of our common stock held by non-affiliates exceeds $700.0 million as of the last business day of the second fiscal quarter of any fiscal yearbefore that date. We have elected to take advantage of certain of the scaled disclosure available for emerging growth companies in this prospectus as well as our filings under the Exchange Act of 1934, or the Exchange Act, including, but not limitedto, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation and financial statements in our periodic reports and proxystatements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote to approve executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved. We will take advantage of these reportingexemptions until we are no longer an “emerging growth company.” The JOBS Act provides that an “emerging growth company” can take advantage of an extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards.We have irrevocably elected not to avail ourselves of this exemption and, therefore, we are subject to the same new or revised accounting standards as other public companies that are not “emerging growth companies.”

If any of these risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flow could be seriously harmed.

Our management will have broad discretion with respect to the use of proceeds of this offering, including for any of the purposes described in thesection of this prospectus entitled “Use of Proceeds.” You will be relying on the judgment of our management regarding the application of the proceeds of this offering. The results and effectiveness of the use of proceeds are uncertain,and we could spend the proceeds in ways that you do not agree with or that do not improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our common stock. Our failure to apply these funds effectively could harm our business, delay the developmentof our pipeline product candidates and cause the price of our common stock to decline.

You will experience immediate dilution in the book value pershare of the common stock purchased in the offering.

Since the public offering price of our common stock in this offering is substantially higherthan the net tangible book value per share of our outstanding common stock outstanding prior to this offering, you will suffer dilution in the book value of the common stock you purchase in this offering. The exercise of outstanding stock optionsand warrants, including warrants sold in this offering and the placement agent warrants, may result in further dilution of your investment. See the section titled “Dilution” for a more detailed discussion of the dilution you will incur ifyou purchase shares in this offering.

Issuances of shares of common stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for shares of common stockfollowing this offering, as well as the exercise of options outstanding, will dilute your ownership interests and may adversely affect the future market price of our common stock.

We may need additional capital to fund the development, registration and commercialization of our product candidates. We may seek additional capital through acombination of private and public equity offerings, debt financings, strategic partnerships and alliances and licensing arrangements, which may cause your ownership interest to be diluted. In addition, we have a significant number of options topurchase shares of our common stock outstanding. If these securities are exercised, you may incur further dilution. Moreover, to the extent that we issue additional options to purchase, or securities convertible into, exercisable or exchangeablefor, shares of our common stock in the future and those options or other securities are exercised, converted or exchanged, shareholders may experience further dilution.

A substantial number of shares of common stock may be sold in the market following this offering, which may depress the market price for our commonstock.

Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market following this offering could cause the market price ofour common stock to decline. A substantial majority of the outstanding shares of our

common stock are, and the shares of common stock sold in this offering upon issuance will be, freely tradable without restriction or further registration under the Securities Act of 1933, asamended, or the Securities Act.

Upon completion of this offering, based on our shares outstanding as of July 27, 2022, we willhave        shares of common stock outstanding, which may be resold into the public market immediately without restriction, unless owned or purchased by our “affiliates” as that term is defined inRule 144 under the Securities Act.

As of July 27, 2022, there were approximately 610,835 shares subject to outstanding options and restrictedstock unit awards or that are otherwise issuable under our equity compensation plans, all of which shares we have registered or will register under the Securities Act on a registration statement on Form S-8.The registered shares can be freely sold in the public market upon issuance, subject to volume limitations applicable to affiliates, to the extent applicable. As of July 27, 2022, we had outstanding warrants exercisable for 7,065,509 shares ofcommon stock with a weighted-average exercise price of $9.59 per share. The shares of our common stock underlying such warrants will, upon issuance, be freely tradeable without restriction or further registration under the Securities Act.

There is no public market for the warrants being offered in this offering.

There is no established public trading market for the warrants being offered in this offering, and we do not expect a market to develop. In addition, we do notintend to apply to list the warrants on any securities exchange or nationally recognized trading system, including the Nasdaq Capital Market. Without an active market, the liquidity of the warrants will be limited.

The holders of warrants purchased in this offering will have no rights as common shareholders until such holders exercise their warrants and acquiresour common shares, except as set forth in the warrants.

Until a holder of warrants acquires the shares of common stock upon exercise of thewarrants, such holder will have no rights with respect to the shares of common stock underlying such warrants, except as set forth in the warrants. Upon exercise of the warrants, holders will be entitled to exercise the rights of common shareholdersonly as to matters for which the record date occurs after the exercise date.

The warrants are speculative in nature.

The warrants do not confer any rights of common stock ownership on their holders, such as voting rights or the right to receive dividends, but rather merelyrepresent the right to acquire shares of common stock at a fixed price for a limited period of time. Specifically, holders of the warrants may exercise their right to acquire the common stock and pay an exercise price of$        per share for the Series A warrants and $0.01 per share for the Series B pre-funded warrants, subject to certain adjustments, commencing immediately uponissuance and for the Series A warrants, for a five-year period, after which period any unexercised Series A warrants will expire and have no further value. There can be no assurance that the market price of the common stock will ever equal or exceedthe exercise price of the warrants, and consequently, it may not ever be profitable for holders of the warrants to exercise the warrants.

Themarket price for our common stock has been volatile and may continue to fluctuate or may decline significantly in the future.

An active, liquidand orderly market for our common stock may not be sustained, which could depress the trading price of our common stock or cause it to continue to be highly volatile or subject to wide fluctuations. Some of the factors that could negatively affectour share price or result in fluctuations in the price or trading volume of our common stock include, among other things:

 

  

our ability to successfully commercialize ANJESO®(meloxicam) injection, or ANJESO;

 

-10-


Table of Contents
  

our ability to identify a strategic partner with appropriate sales and marketing capabilities and to enter into astrategic partnership on commercially acceptable terms with such partner to commercialize ANJESO inside or outside the United States;

 

  

our ability to effectively manage the levels of production, distribution and delivery of ANJESO through oursupply chain;

 

  

our ability to leverage our development experience to progress our other pipeline product candidates;

 

  

our ability to identify and successfully acquire or in-license newproduct candidates on acceptable terms;

 

  

United States Food and Drug Administration, state or international regulatory actions, including actions onregulatory applications for ANJESO or any of our product candidates;

 

  

legislative or regulatory changes;

 

  

judicial pronouncements interpreting laws and regulations;

 

  

changes in government programs;

 

  

announcements of new products, services or technologies, commercial relationships, acquisitions or other eventsby us or our competitors;

 

  

market conditions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors;

 

  

fluctuations in stock market prices and trading volumes of similar companies;

 

  

changes in accounting principles;

 

  

litigation or public concern about the safety of our products or product candidates or similar products orproduct candidates;

 

  

sales of large blocks of our common stock, including sales by our executive officers, directors and significantshareholders;

 

  

our announcement of financing transactions, including debt, convertible notes, warrant exchanges, etc.;

 

  

our ability to have sufficient authorized shares of our common stock available;

 

  

our ability to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market, or Nasdaq, listing requirements;

 

  

the ability to effectuate a reverse stock split or other similar change to our capital structure;

 

  

the continued negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the globaleconomy; and

 

  

actions by institutional shareholders.

These broad market and industry factors may decrease the market price of our common stock, regardless of our actual operating performance. The stock market ingeneral has from time to time experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations, including recently. In addition, in the past, following periods of volatility in the overall market and decreases in the market price of a company’s securities,securities class action litigation has often been instituted against these companies. This litigation, if instituted against us, could result in substantial costs and a diversion of our management’s attention and resources.

This is a best efforts offering, no minimum amount of securities is required to be sold, and we may not raise the amount of capital we believe isrequired for our business plans, including our near-term business plans.

The placement agent has agreed to use its reasonable best efforts tosolicit offers to purchase the securities in this offering. The placement agent has no obligation to buy any of the securities from us or to arrange for the purchase or sale of any specific number or dollar amount of the securities. There is norequired minimum number of securities that must be sold as a condition to completion of this offering. Because there is no minimum

offering amount required as a condition to the closing of this offering, the actual offering amount,placement agent fees and proceeds to us are not presently determinable and may be substantially less than the maximum amounts set forth herein. We may sell fewer than all of the securities offered hereby, which may significantly reduce the amount ofproceeds received by us, and investors in this offering will not receive a refund in the event that we do not sell an amount of securities sufficient to support our continued operations, including our near-term continued operations. Thus, we may notraise the amount of capital we believe is required for our operations in the short-term and may need to raise additional funds to complete such short-term operations. Such additional fundraises may not be available or available on terms acceptableto us.

Risks Related to Our Finances and Capital Requirements

Our losses, negative cash flows from operations and accumulated deficit raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern absentobtaining adequate new debt or equity financings.

Management has concluded that substantial doubt exists about our ability to continue as a goingconcern for the next twelve months from the date hereof. As of             , 2022, we had an accumulated deficit of $    million, cash and cash equivalents of$    million and current liabilities of $            million. Based on available resources, we believe that, prior to this offering, our cash and cash equivalents onhand would be sufficient to fund our currently anticipated operating and capital requirements through             . We believe that if we sell the maximum amount of securities pursuant tothis offering, after deducting the placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable by us, that our cash and cash equivalents on hand will be sufficient to fund our currently anticipated operating and capital requirementsthrough             . However, because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to the closing of this offering, the actual offering amount, placement agent fees andproceeds to us are not presently determinable and may be substantially less than the maximum amounts set forth herein.

We did not become arevenue-generating company until the second quarter of 2020, following the commercial launch of ANJESO. We expect to continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future as we continue our efforts to monetize ANJESO and develop our other current andfuture product candidates. We have also incurred significant indebtedness. As of June 30, 2022, we had an outstanding balance of $         million under our credit facility with MAM Eagle Lender.These factors, individually and collectively, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, and therefore, could materially limit our ability to raise additional funds through an issuance of debt or equity securities orotherwise.

Our forecast of the period of time through which our financial resources will be adequate to support our operating requirements is aforward-looking statement and involves risks and uncertainties, and actual results could vary as a result of a number of factors, including the factors discussed elsewhere in this “Risk Factors” section and Part I, Item 1A “RiskFactors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 16, 2022, as revised or supplemented by our subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q orour current reports on Form 8-K, each as filed with the SEC. We have based this estimate on a number of assumptions that may prove to be wrong and changing circumstances beyond our control may cause us toconsume capital more rapidly than we currently anticipate. Our inability to obtain additional funding when we need it could seriously harm our business.

We have incurred significant indebtedness, which could adversely affect our business, including as a result of any default thereof.

As of June 30, 2022, we had an outstanding balance of $         million under our credit agreement with MAMEagle Lender. Our indebtedness could have important consequences to our shareholders. For example, it:

 

  

increases our vulnerability to adverse general economic and industry conditions;

 

  

limits our flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in our business or the industries in which weoperate;

 

-12-


Table of Contents
  

reduces proceeds we may receive as a result of any sale;

 

  

limits our ability to obtain additional financing or refinancing in the future for working capital, clinicaltrials, research and development, or other purposes; and

 

  

places us at a competitive disadvantage compared to our competitors that have less indebtedness.

Any of the above-listed factors could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cashflows.

Our credit agreement with MAM Eagle Lender also contains certain financial and other covenants, and includes limitations on, among other things,additional indebtedness, paying dividends in certain circumstances, and making certain acquisitions and investments. The credit agreement provides for certain mandatory prepayment events, including with respect to the net proceeds of asset sales,extraordinary receipts, casualty payments and other specified events, based on the terms of the credit agreement with MAM Eagle Lender.

On August 1,2022, we entered into Amendment No. 1 and Waiver to Credit Agreement, or the Amendment, with MAM Eagle Lender. Pursuant to the terms of the Amendment, the lenders waived any default under the credit agreement (including the imposition of a defaultinterest rate with respect to the default) resulting from our failure to comply with the minimum cash covenant, or the Minimum Liquidity Covenant, which requires us to maintain at least $5 million in a liquidity account. In addition, the Amendment,among other items, (i) provides that 30% of any cash proceeds received by us from certain potential strategic licensing transactions shall be used to prepay amounts outstanding under the credit agreement; and (ii) decreases the amount of cash we arerequired to maintain pursuant to the Minimum Liquidity Covenant to $3.0 million for a period beginning on August 1, 2022, and ending on August 31, 2022, at which point the amount required pursuant to the Minimum Liquidity Covenant shall increase to$5.0 million.

Any failure to comply with the terms, covenants and conditions of the credit agreement, as amended, including the Minimum LiquidityCovenant, may result in an event of default under such agreement, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operation, and could result in the filing of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcypetition.

USE OF PROCEEDS

We estimate that the net proceeds from this offering will be approximately $        million based on the sale ofshares of common stock and Series A warrants to purchase shares of common stock at an assumed combined public offering price of $        per share of common stock and Series A warrant, which is equal to thelast reported sale price per share of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on            , 2022, after deducting the placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable byus, and assuming no sale of Series B pre-funded warrants in this offering and no exercise of the Series A warrants being issued in this offering. However, because this is a best efforts offering and there isno minimum offering amount required as a condition to the closing of this offering, the actual offering amount, the placement agent’s fees and net proceeds to us are not presently determinable and may be substantially less than the maximumamounts set forth on the cover page of this prospectus. The table below depicts how we plan to utilize the proceeds in the event that 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of the securities in this offering are sold, after deducting estimated offering expensespayable by us:

These estimates exclude the proceeds, if any, from the exercise of Series A warrants issued in this offering. If all of theSeries A warrants issued in this offering were to be exercised in cash at an assumed exercise price of $        per share of common stock, we would receive additional proceeds of approximately$    million. We cannot predict when or if these Series A warrants will be exercised. It is possible that these Series A warrants may expire and may never be exercised. Additionally, the Series A warrants contain a cashlessexercise provision that permit exercise of Series A warrants on a cashless basis at any time where there is no effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, covering the issuance of theunderlying shares.

We intend to use the net proceeds of this offering for pipeline development activities and general corporate purposes. Generalcorporate purposes may include, and are not limited to, costs associated with, research and development costs, manufacturing costs, the acquisition or licensing of other businesses, products or product candidates, working capital and capitalexpenditures. These expected uses represent our intentions based upon our current plans and business conditions, which could change in the future as our plans and business conditions evolve. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures may varysignificantly depending on numerous factors, including the progress of our development, the status of and results from clinical trials, as well as any new collaborations that we may enter into with third parties for our product candidates, thecommercialization of our products or our product candidates, if approved, and any unforeseen cash needs. As a result, our management will have broad discretion in the application of the net proceeds from this offering, and the investors will berelying on the judgment of our management regarding the application of the net proceeds from this offering. Pending application of the net proceeds as described above, we intend to invest the net proceeds of this offering in short-term,investment-grade, interest-bearing securities.

Any future determination to pay dividends on our common stock will be made at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend on various factors, including applicable laws, our results of operations, financial condition, futureprospects, anticipated cash needs, plans for expansion and any other factors deemed relevant by our board of directors.

DILUTION

If you invest in our common stock, your interest will be immediately diluted to the extent of the difference between the public offering price per share andthe pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value per share of our common stock after this offering. Net tangible book value per share represents our total tangible assets less total liabilities, divided by the number of shares of our common stockoutstanding.

As of March 31, 2022, our net tangible book value was $(13.4) million, or $(2.09) per share of common stock, based on 6,412,979 sharesof common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2021, and our pro forma net tangible book value was approximately $(11.7) million, or $(1.45) per share, after giving effect to the issuance and sale of 1,646,091 shares of common stock, warrants topurchase 1,646,091 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 98,765 shares of common stock, or the May Offering.

After giving effect to the saleof            shares of our common stock and accompanying Series A warrants at an assumed public offering price per share of common stock and accompanying Series A warrants of$        , the last reported sale price of common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on            , 2022, assuming no sale of any Series B pre-funded warrants in this offering, and after deducting the estimated placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable by us, and excluding the proceeds, if any, from the exercise of the warrantsissued in this offering, our pro forma as adjusted net tangible book value as of March 31, 2022 would have been approximately $        million, or approximately$        per share. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value to existing shareholders of $        per share and an immediate dilution in nettangible book value of $        per share of our common stock to the investors purchasing securities in this offering.

Each $0.25 increase or decrease in the assumed public offering price per share of common stock and accompanying Series Awarrants of $        , the last reported sale price of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on            , 2022, would increase or decreasethe net proceeds to us from this offering by $    million, assuming that the number of share of common stock and accompanying Series A warrants offered by us, as set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, remains the same,assuming no sale of any Series B pre-funded warrants and accompanying Series A warrants, after deducting the estimated placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses payable by us, and excluding theproceeds, if any, from the exercise of the warrants issued pursuant to this offering. The as adjusted information discussed above is illustrative only and will be adjusted based on the actual public offering price and other terms of this offering asdetermined between us and the placement agent at pricing.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

The following description of our capital stock is not complete and may not contain all the information you should consider before investing in our capitalstock. This description is summarized from, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, which has been publicly filed with the SEC. For more information on how you can obtain copies of ouramended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws, see “Where You Can Find More Information.”

Pursuant toour Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, our authorized capital stock consists of 190,000,000 shares of common stock, par value of $0.01 per share, and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, to be designated fromtime to time by our board of directors.

As of             , 2022, therewere            shares of our common stock issued and outstanding and no shares of our preferred stock issued and outstanding.

Common Stock

Holders of our common stock are entitled toone vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders, including the election of directors, and do not have cumulative voting rights. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast.

Subject to preferences that may be applicable to any then-outstanding shares of preferred stock, holders of our common stock are entitled to receive ratablydividends when, as, and if declared by our board of directors out of funds legally available therefor, subject to any preferential dividend rights of outstanding preferred stock. In the event of our liquidation, dissolution, or winding up, holdersof our common stock will be entitled to ratably receive the net assets of our company available after the payments of all debts and other liabilities and subject to the prior rights of the holders of any then-outstanding shares of preferred stock.

Holders of our common stock have no preemptive, subscription, redemption or conversion rights. The rights and privileges of the holders of the commonstock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of any series of preferred stock that we may designate and issue in the future.

Preferred Stock

Our board of directors has theauthority, without further action by our shareholders, to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more series, to establish from time to time the number of shares to be included in each such series, to fix the dividend, voting andother rights, preferences and privileges of the shares of each wholly unissued series and any qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereon, and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such series, but not below the number ofshares of such series then outstanding. Our board of directors may authorize the issuance of preferred stock with voting or conversion rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of our common stock. Theissuance of preferred stock, while providing flexibility in connection with possible acquisitions and other corporate purposes, could, among other things, have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in our control and may adverselyaffect the market price of the common stock and the voting and other rights of the holders of our common stock. We have no current plans to issue any shares of preferred stock.

Anti-Takeover Effects of Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Our Amended and Restated Bylaws

Provisions of our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws may delay or discourage transactions involving an actual orpotential change of control or change in our management, including transactions in which shareholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares, or transactions

that our shareholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests. Therefore, these provisions couldadversely affect the price of our common stock. Among other things, our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws:

 

  

divide our board of directors into three classes with staggered three-year terms;

 

  

provide that a special meeting of shareholders may be called only by a majority of our board of directors, thechairman of our board of directors, the chief executive officer or the president;

 

  

establish advance notice procedures with respect to shareholder proposals to be brought before a shareholdermeeting and the nomination of candidates for election as directors, other than nominations made by or at the direction of the board of directors or a committee of the board of director;

 

  

provide that shareholders may only act at a duly organized meeting; and

 

  

provide that members of our board of directors may be removed from office by our shareholders only for cause bythe affirmative vote of 75% of the total voting power of all shares entitled to vote generally in the election of directors.

OurAmended and Restated Articles of Incorporation also provide that, unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, a state or federal court located within the County of Philadelphia in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will bethe sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of our company, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers or other employees or ourshareholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law, or PBCL, or (iv) any action asserting a claim peculiar to the relationships among or between our company andour officers, directors and shareholders.

The exclusive forum provision described above is intended to apply to the fullest extent permitted by law,including to actions arising under the Securities Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Exchange Act. However, the enforceability of exclusive forum provisions in the governing documents of other companies has been challenged in legalproceedings, and it is possible that a court could find our forum selection provision to be inapplicable or unenforceable with respect to actions arising under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act. Even if it is accepted that our exclusive forumprovision applies to actions arising under the Securities Act, shareholders will not be deemed to have waived our compliance with the federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

Anti-Takeover Provisions under Pennsylvania Law

Provisions of the PBCL applicable to us provide, among other things, that:

 

  

we may not engage in a business combination with an “interested shareholder,” generally defined as aholder of 20% of a corporation’s voting stock, during the five-year period after the interested shareholder became such except under certain specified circumstances;

 

  

holders of our common stock may object to a “control transaction” involving us (a control transactionis defined as the acquisition by a person or group of persons acting in concert of at least 20% of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation), and demand that they be paid a cash payment for the “fair value” of their shares from the“controlling person or group”;

 

  

holders of “control shares” will not be entitled to voting rights with respect to any shares in excessof specified thresholds, including 20% voting control, until the voting rights associated with such shares are restored by the affirmative vote of a majority of disinterested shares and the outstanding voting shares of the Company; and

 

  

any “profit,” as defined, realized by any person or group who is or was a “controlling person orgroup” with respect to us from the disposition of any equity securities of within 18 months after the person or group became a “controlling person or group” shall belong to and be recoverable by us.

Table of Contents

Pennsylvania-chartered corporations may exempt themselves from these and other anti-takeover provisions. OurAmended and Restated Articles of Incorporation do not provide for exemption from the applicability of these or other anti-takeover provisions in the PBCL.

The provisions noted above may have the effect of discouraging a future takeover attempt that is not approved by our board of directors but which individualshareholders may consider to be in their best interests or in which shareholders may receive a substantial premium for their shares over the then current market price. As a result, shareholders who might wish to participate in such a transaction maynot have an opportunity to do so. The provisions may make the removal of our board of directors or management more difficult. Furthermore, such provisions could result in our company being deemed less attractive to a potential acquiror and/or couldresult in our shareholders receiving a lesser amount of consideration for their shares of our common stock than otherwise could have been available either in the market generally and/or in a takeover.

We are offering up to                shares of common stock, together withSeries A warrants to purchase                shares of common stock. We are also offering upto                Series B pre-funded warrants to those purchasers, whose purchase of shares of common stock in this offeringwould result in the purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties, beneficially owning more than 4.99% (or, at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%) of our outstanding common stock following the consummation of this offering inlieu of the shares of our common stock that would result in ownership in excess of 4.99% (or, at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%).

The May Warrants have an exercise price of $1.09 per share. As compensation to the placement agent in connection with the May Offering, we paid to theplacement agent a cash fee of 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised in the May Offering, plus a management fee equal to 1.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the May Offering and certain expenses. In addition, we issued warrant to purchase upto 98,765 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.5188 per share, to certain designees of the placement agent, or the May Placement Agent Warrants. The May Offering closed on May 19, 2022. Neither the issuance of the MayWarrants, the May Placement Agent Warrants nor the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the May Warrants or the May Placement Agent Warrants are registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, or anystate securities laws. The May Warrants, the May Placement Agent Warrant and the shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the May Warrants and the May Placement Agent Warrants were issued in reliance on the exemptions from registrationprovided by Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act.
