|Item 1.01.||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On November 9, 2018, Sachem Capital Corp (the “Company”) entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with B. Riley FBR, Inc. (the “Agent”), pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell from time to time through the Agent up to $16,000,000 of the Company’s common shares, par value $0.001 per share (the “Placement Shares”), in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Sales Agreement.
Sales of Placement Shares, if any, made under the Sales Agreement will be made by any method permitted by law that is deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Agent may also purchase Placement Shares for its own account as principal if expressly authorized to do so by the Company. Under the Sales Agreement, the Company will pay the Agent commissions, discounts or other forms of compensation of up to 7.0% on the sale of Placement Shares. The Company has no obligation to sell any of the Placement Shares under the Sales Agreement.
The Placement Shares will be issued pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-227906). The Company filed a prospectus supplement, dated November 9, 2018, to the prospectus dated the same date with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the offer and sale of the Placement Shares.
The Sales Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Company and the Agent, indemnification rights and obligations of the parties, and termination provisions. Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company agreed to indemnify the Agent against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments that the Agents may be required to make because of those liabilities.
A copy of the Sales Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and the information in the Sales Agreement is incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference. The description of the terms of the Sales Agreement in this Item 1.01 is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Placement Shares in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
