Item 8.01 Other Events.


On February 25, 2021, SINTX Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) with Maxim Group LLC (“Maxim”), pursuant to which the Company may sell from time to time, shares of its common stock, $0.01 par value per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $15,000,000 million (the “Shares”) through Maxim, as agent (the “Offering”). On February 25, 2021, the Company filed a prospectus supplement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Offering (the “Prospectus Supplement”) under its existing Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No 333-249267), which became effective on October 13, 2020 (the “Registration Statement”).


Subject to the terms and conditions of the Distribution Agreement, Maxim will use its commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Shares from time to time, based on the Company’s instructions. Under the Distribution Agreement, Maxim may sell the Shares by any method permitted by law deemed to be an “at-the-market” offering as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including, without limitation, sales made directly on the Nasdaq Capital Market.


The Company has no obligation to sell any of the Shares, and may at any time suspend offers under the Distribution Agreement. The Offering will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of Shares having an aggregate offering price of $15,000,000 million, (ii) the termination by either the Agent or the Company upon the provision of fifteen (15) days written notice, or (iii) February 25, 2022.


Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, Maxim will be entitled to a transaction fee at a fixed rate of 2.0% of the gross sales price of Shares sold under the Distribution Agreement. The Company will also reimburse Maxim for certain expenses incurred in connection with the Distribution Agreement, and agreed to provide indemnification and contribution to Maxim with respect to certain liabilities under the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of Shares for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Company may also use a portion of the net proceeds to invest in or acquire businesses or technologies that the Company believes are complementary to its own, although the Company has no current plans, commitments or agreements with respect to any acquisitions as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K.


The foregoing description of the Distribution Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Distribution Agreement, a copy of which is filed hereto as Exhibit 10.1.


This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Shares, nor shall there by any offer, solicitation or sale of the Shares in any state or country in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or country.




The Distribution Agreement and the above description have been included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding the terms of the Distribution Agreement. They are not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company or its subsidiaries, affiliates or stockholders. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Distribution Agreement were made only for purposes of the Distribution Agreement and as of specific dates; were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Distribution Agreement; and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made by each contracting party to the other for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between them that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any description thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, affiliates, businesses or stockholders. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Distribution Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures or statements by the Company. Accordingly, investors should read the representations and warranties in the Distribution Agreement not in isolation but only in conjunction with the other information about the Company and its subsidiaries that the Company includes in reports, statements and other filings made with the SEC.


Dorsey & Whitney LLP, counsel to the Company, has issued a legal opinion relating to the Shares. A copy of this legal opinion, including the consent included therein, is attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.


Any shares offered and sold in the Offering will be issued pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement, the prospectus and the Prospectus Supplement relating to the Offering.
