Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On January 26, 2021, Lipocine Inc. (the “Company” or “Lipocine”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Raymond James & Associates, Inc., as representative of the underwriters identified therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell 14,285,714 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, at a public offering price of $1.75 per share (the “Offering”). Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, Lipocine granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2,142,857 shares of common stock solely to cover over-allotments, if any. Lipocine expects to receive approximately $23.3 million in net proceeds from the Offering (excluding the over-allotment option), after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses. The shares are being offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s effective registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-250072), which was declared effective by the Securities Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 23, 2020, and the base prospectus included therein, as amended and supplemented by the preliminary prospectus supplement filed with the SEC on January 25, 2021, and the final prospectus supplement to be filed with the SEC. The Offering is expected to close on or about January 28, 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Company intends to use net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes, which may include additions to working capital and capital expenditures. The Company has not yet determined the amount of net proceeds to be used specifically for any particular purpose or the timing of these expenditures. Accordingly, the Company’s management will have significant discretion and flexibility in applying the net proceeds from the sale of these securities.


The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, and termination and other provisions customary for transactions of this nature. All of the Company’s executive officers and directors have also agreed not to sell or transfer any securities of the Company held by them for a period of 90 calendar days from January 26, 2021, subject to limited exceptions.


The above description of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached to this report as Exhibit 1.1 and which is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 8.01Other Events.


In connection with the Offering, Lipocine is filing a legal opinion and consent as Exhibit 5.1 and Exhibit 23.1 to this report, which are incorporated herein by reference. In addition, on January 26, 2021, Lipocine issued a press release announcing that it had priced the Offering, which press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
