Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On March 8, 2024, Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (the “Company”) entered into a warrant inducement agreement (the “Inducement Agreement”) with a certain holder (the “Holder”) of warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), issued in a private placement offering that closed on October 27, 2021 (the “Existing Warrants”). Pursuant to the Inducement Agreement, the Holder of the Existing Warrants agreed to exercise for cash the Existing Warrants to purchase up to 1,898,630 shares of common stock, at an exercise price of $ 0.2603 per share. The transactions contemplated by the Inducement Agreement are expected to close on March 12, 2024. The Company will receive aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $494,213, before deducting placement agent fees and other expenses payable by the Company.


In consideration of the Holder’s immediate exercise of the Existing Warrants, the Company issued unregistered warrants (the “New Warrants”) to purchase 3,797,260 shares of Common Stock (200% of the number of shares of common stock issued upon exercise of the Existing Warrants) (the “New Warrant Shares”) to the Holder.


The issuance of the shares of Common Stock underlying the Existing Warrants have been registered pursuant to an existing registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-260996), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 23, 2021.


In addition, pursuant to the Inducement Agreement, the Company agreed not to issue any shares of Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents (as defined in the Inducement Agreement) or to file any other registration statement with the SEC (in each case, subject to certain exceptions) until thirty (30) days after the closing. The Company has also agreed not to effect or agree to effect any Variable Rate Transaction (as defined in the Inducement Agreement) until sixty (60) days after closing.


The Company agreed in the Inducement Agreement to file a registration statement to register the resale of the New Warrant Shares (the “Resale Registration Statement”) on or before thirty (30) days from the initial closing of the transactions contemplated by the Inducement Agreement, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to have such Resale Registration Statement declared effective by the SEC within sixty (60) days (or, in the event of a full review, ninety (90) calendar days) following the date of filing the Resale Registration Statement.


Under the Inducement Agreement, to the extent required under the rules and regulations of the Nasdaq Stock Market, the Company agreed to hold a special or annual meeting of shareholders no later than the 60th calendar date following the date of the Inducement Agreement for the purpose of seeking the Stockholder Approval (as defined below). If the Company does not obtain Stockholder Approval at the first meeting, the Company shall call a meeting every ninety (90) days thereafter to seek Stockholder Approval until the earlier of the date Stockholder Approval is obtained or the New Warrants are no longer outstanding.


The Company expects to use the net proceeds from these transactions for working capital and other general corporate purposes.


Maxim Group LLC (“Maxim”) served as the Company’s financial advisor in connection with the transactions described in the Inducement Agreement, and the Company paid Maxim (i) a cash fee equal to 7.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds received from the Holder upon exercise of the Existing Warrants and the exercise of the New Warrants, and (ii) $10,000 for legal fees and other out-of-pocket expenses.





Terms of the New Warrants


The New Warrants have an exercise price of $0.2603 per share and will be exercisable on and after the date on which such approval as may be required by the applicable rules and regulations of Nasdaq (or any successor entity) from the Company’s stockholders (the “Stockholder Approval”) with respect to issuance of all of the New Warrant Shares upon the exercise thereof (the “Stockholder Approval Date”). The New Warrants will expire on the five year anniversary of their initial exercise date. If at the time of exercise on a date that is after the 90th day anniversary of the issuance date of the New Warrants, there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the resale of the New Warrant Shares by the Holder, then the New Warrants may also be exercised, in whole or in part, at such time by means of a “cashless exercise.”


The exercise price and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of each New Warrant are subject to appropriate adjustments in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting the common stock. In the event of a fundamental transaction, as described in the New Warrants, the holders of the New Warrants will be entitled to receive upon exercise of the New Warrants the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property that the holders would have received had they exercised the New Warrants immediately prior to such fundamental transaction. In addition, in certain circumstances, upon a fundamental transaction, the holder will have the right to require us to repurchase its New Warrants at the Black Scholes Value; provided, however, that, if the fundamental transaction is not within the Company’s control, including not approved by the Company’s board of directors, then the holder shall only be entitled to receive the same type or form of consideration (and in the same proportion), at the Black Scholes Value of the unexercised portion of the New Warrant, that is being offered and paid to the holders of common stock in connection with the fundamental transaction. 


The Company may not affect the exercise of New Warrants, and the Holder will not be entitled to exercise any portion of any such New Warrants, which, upon giving effect to such exercise, would cause the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder of such New Warrants (together with its affiliates) to exceed 4.99% or 9.99%, as applicable, of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the exercise, as such percentage ownership is determined in accordance with the terms of such New Warrants.


Except as otherwise provided in the New Warrants or by virtue of such holder’s ownership of shares of Common Stock, a holder of New Warrants will not have the rights or privileges of a holder of Common Stock, including any voting rights, until such holder exercises such holder’s New Warrants. The New Warrants will provide that the holders of the New Warrants have the right to participate in distributions or dividends paid on shares of common stock.


The New Warrants described herein have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and may not be sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.





Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


The disclosure required by this Item and included in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference. Neither the New Warrants nor the New Warrant Shares have been registered under the Securities Act, and may not be sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.  Based in part upon the representations of the Holder in the Inducement Agreement, the offering and sale of the New Warrants is exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
