February 2024 Registered Direct Offering and Concurrent Private Placement

In February 2024, we entered into a securities purchase agreement with certain purchasers, pursuant to which we sold 13,086,151 shares of common stock at a price of $4.585 per share in a registered direct offering. The offering of the shares was made pursuant to our shelf registration statement on Form S-3, including the prospectus dated January 5, 2022 contained therein, and the prospectus supplement dated February 29, 2024.

In a concurrent private placement, we issued unregistered warrants to purchase up to 13,086,151 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $4.906 per share (provided, however, that the purchaser may elect to exercise the warrants for pre-funded warrants in lieu of shares of common stock at an exercise price of $4.906, minus $0.001, the exercise price of each pre-funded warrant). These warrants will be immediately exercisable for shares of common stock or pre-funded warrants in lieu thereof, and will expire on the earlier of (i) three and one-half years following the date of issuance and (ii) 30 days following our public disclosure of the acceptance of an NDA for cytisinicline by the FDA in a Day 74 Letter or equivalent correspondence.

The registered direct offering raised total gross proceeds of approximately $60.0 million, and after deducting approximately $3.8 million in placement agent fees and offering expenses, we received net proceeds of approximately $56.2 million.

Convertible Debt

On February 26, 2024, we entered into a non-binding term sheet, or the Term Sheet, for an extension of the maturity date for the term loans outstanding pursuant to our Debt Agreement with Lenders. There is no guarantee that we will be able to enter into a definitive agreement with the Lenders on the terms provided in the Term Sheet or any at all. (See “Item 1A. Risk Factors - Risks Related to Our Financial Condition and Capital Requirements").

At-the-Market Sales Agreement

On February 29, 2024, we terminated the ATM agreement with Virtu and no further sales of our common stock will be made pursuant to the ATM.
