According to the terms of the deal, ConforMIS also plans to issue an additional 354,430 shares of common stock to Lincoln Park as commitment shares.
In total, the company said it will sell no more than 12,651,640 shares of common stock to Lincoln Park unless it obtains stockholder approval to issue more.
Also this month, ConforMIS announced that it would lay off roughly 10% of its workforce.
The Billerica, Mass.-based company had 350 employees as of February this year. The cuts are slated to cost approximately $700,000 in severance and other exit charges, the company said. ConforMIS noted that its move to cut workers would generate more than $4 million in savings next year.
“We are taking decisive actions to prioritize our highest-impact new product opportunities, our Conformis hip system and our cementless Press Fit total knee, which we believe provide us an opportunity to build a stronger, more sustainable business. As a result of these actions, we believe we can achieve profitability in 2021,” CEO Mark Augusti said in prepared remarks.
