Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

 

On March 8, 2016, Avant Diagnostics, Inc. (the "Company") issued a convertible promissory note to Amarantus Bioscience Holdings, Inc. (the "Investor") pursuant to which the Investor purchased a note with aggregate principal amount of $100,000 for an aggregate purchase price of $100,000 (the "Note"). The Note bears interest at 12% per annum and matures one year from the date of issuance. The Note will be convertible at the option of the Investor at any time into shares of common stock, at an initial conversion price equal to $0.20, subject to adjustment. The conversion price of the Note is subject to customary adjustments provisions for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations and the like. The Investor has contractually agreed to restrict its ability to convert the Note such that the number of shares of the Company common stock held by the Investor and their affiliates after such conversion does not exceed 4.99% of the Company's then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

 

As of the date hereof, the Company is obligated on $100,000 face amount of the Note issued to the Investor. The Note is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business which constitute a direct financial obligation of the Company.   

 

The securities sold were not registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any state, and were offered and sold in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) and Regulation D (Rule 506) promulgated thereunder under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and the corresponding provisions of state securities laws, which exempt transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering. The Investor is an "accredited investor" as such term is defined in Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act. This current report shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall such securities be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements and certificates evidencing such securities contain a legend stating the same.

 

The foregoing information is a summary of the agreement involved in the transactions described above, is not complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is attached as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K.  Readers should review such agreement for a complete understanding of the terms and conditions associated with this transaction.
