Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On April 1, 2019, Jaguar Health, Inc. (“Jaguar” or the “Company”) entered into a common stock purchase agreement (the “CSPA”) with Oasis Capital, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company (“Oasis Capital”), relating to an offering (the “Equity Line Offering”) of an aggregate of up to 20,000,000 shares (the “Purchase Shares”) of the Company’s voting common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), all of which are being offered in an indirect primary offering consisting of an equity line of credit. The Equity Line Offering is being made pursuant to the Registration Statement and the related base prospectus included in the Registration Statement, as supplemented by a separate prospectus supplement dated April 1, 2019.


Under the terms of the CSPA, the Company has the right to “put,” or sell, the Purchase Shares to Oasis Capital for an Investment Amount (as defined below and subject to adjustment) at a fixed price of $0.28 per share or such other price agreed upon between the Company and Oasis Capital (the “Purchase Price”).


From time to time over the term of the CSPA, and at the Company’s sole discretion, the Company may direct Oasis Capital to purchase the Purchase Shares by presenting Oasis Capital with purchase notices (“Purchase Notices”) specifying a number of Purchase Shares to be purchased by Oasis Capital pursuant to the terms of the CSPA. Each Purchase Notice shall require Oasis Capital to purchase shares equal to the lesser of (a) 500,000 shares or (b) 200% of the average trading volume of the Common Stock in the 5 trading days immediately preceding the applicable Purchase Date (each such purchase, a “Regular Purchase”). The “Purchase Date” means with respect to any Regular Purchase, the business day that the respective portion of the Purchase Shares are reflected in Oasis Capital’s account.  Each such purchase of Purchase Shares will have an individual closing within one trading day following the receipt of the Purchase Shares for the applicable Purchase Notice.


With respect to the Purchase Shares that are the subject of any Purchase Notice, Oasis Capital shall deliver to the Company an amount equal to the product of (x) the Purchase Price and (y) the number of Purchase Shares set forth on such Purchase Notice, minus deposit and clearing costs associated with such purchase. Any proceeds that the Company receives under the CSPA are expected to be used for general corporate purposes and working capital. The transaction expenses associated with the Equity Line Offering are anticipated to be approximately $58,000.


The Company may issue Purchase Shares at any time on or after the date of the CSPA until the date on which Oasis Capital has purchased 20,000,000 Purchase Shares, unless the CSPA is terminated earlier in accordance with its terms; provided, that, the Company is not permitted to submit more than one Purchase Notice to Oasis Capital in any 3 trading day period without Oasis Capital’s consent. Further, the number of Purchase Shares to be purchased by Oasis Capital may not exceed the number of shares that, when added to the number of shares of the Common Stock then beneficially owned by Oasis Capital, would exceed 9.99% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding. Additionally, the Company is not required to deliver Purchase Shares, and Oasis Capital is not entitled to receive such Purchase Shares, if the issuance of such Purchase Shares would exceed the aggregate number of shares of the Common Stock that the Company may issue without breaching our obligations under the rules or regulations of the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company has the option to increase the equity line of credit by an additional 20,000,000 shares of Common Stock by notifying Oasis Capital at any time after the effective date of the CSPA.


With regard to the purchase and resale of the Purchase Shares, Oasis Capital is an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in resales of Purchase Shares may be deemed “underwriters.” The Company will receive proceeds from the sale of the Purchase Shares directly to Oasis Capital pursuant to the CSPA; however the Company will not receive any proceeds from the resale of the Purchase Shares by Oasis Capital thereafter. We are not paying any underwriting discounts or commissions.


The CSPA contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company, including for liabilities under the Securities Act, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in this agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties.


The foregoing description of the terms and conditions of the CSPA is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the CSPA, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.


The legal opinion and consent of Reed Smith LLP addressing the validity of the securities issued in connection with the Equity Line Offering are filed as Exhibit 5.1 and Exhibit 23.1, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated into the Registration Statement.
