Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (NYSE: HEB) announced today that it has entered into definitive agreements with two healthcare focused institutional investors for an offering of shares of common stock with gross proceeds of approximately $5 million in a registered direct offering. The closing of the offering is expected to take place on or about September 6, 2016, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

In connection with the offering, the Company will issue registered shares of common stock at a purchase price of $1.50 per share. Concurrently in a private placement, for each share of common stock purchased by an investor, such investor will receive from the Company an unregistered warrant to purchase 0.75 shares of common stock. The warrants have an exercise price of $2.00 per share, will be exercisable six months after issuance and will expire five years from the initial exercise date.

Rodman & Renshaw, a unit of H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, acted as the exclusive placement agent in connection with this offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for preparation for technology transfer opportunities, expenses related to Ampligen manufacturing and for other working capital and general corporate purposes.

The shares of common stock described above (but not the warrants or the shares of common stock underlying the warrants) are being offered pursuant to a shelf registration statement (File No. 333-205228). Such shares of common stock may be offered only by means of a prospectus, including a prospectus supplement, forming a part of the effective registration statement.

The warrants and the shares of common stock underlying the warrants issued in the offering have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the warrants and underlying shares of common stock may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such applicable state securities laws.
