This Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D previously filed on June 12, 2020, as amended on February 5, 2021 (together, the “Schedule 13D”), by the Reporting Persons (as defined below) relating to common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of Outlook Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”).

 

This Amendment is being filed as a result of the April 15, 2024 acquisition of 714,286 Shares and accompanying warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase 1,071,429 Shares by the Reporting Persons pursuant to that certain securities purchase agreement, dated April 15, 2024.

 

Unless otherwise indicated herein, capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment shall have the same meaning ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D. Except as set forth herein, this Amendment does not modify any information previously reported by the Reporting Persons in the Schedule 13D.

 

As used in this Amendment, Reporting Persons means (i) Syntone Ventures LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Syntone”), (ii) Syntone LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Manager”), and (iii) Syntone Technologies Group Co. Ltd. (“Syntone Technologies”), a company organized in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”).

 

  Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

 

Item 3 is hereby amended to add disclosure as follows:

 

On January 22, 2024, the Issuer entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Syntone (the “January 2024 SPA”), pursuant to which the Issuer agreed to sell and issue, in a private placement, an aggregate of 714,286 Shares and Warrants to purchase 1,071,429 Shares at a purchase price of $7.00 per Share and accompanying Warrant, for gross proceeds to the Issuer of approximately $5.0 million, which closed on April 15, 2024 (the “April 2024 Private Placement”). The Warrants have a per share exercise price equal to $7.70 and will expire on April 15, 2029. The source of funds for such purchase was a capital contribution made to Syntone by the Manager, the source of funds of which were from the working capital of Syntone Technology.

 

In connection with the entry into the January 2024 SPA, the Issuer also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with Syntone. Pursuant to the January 2024 Registration Rights Agreement, the Issuer is required to prepare and file one or more registration statements with the SEC to register for resale the securities issued in the April 2024 Private Placement. The Issuer agreed to be responsible for all fees and expenses incurred in connection with the registration of such securities. In addition, the Issuer granted Syntone customary indemnification rights in connection with any registration statement filed pursuant to Registration Rights Agreement, and Syntone has also granted the Company customary indemnification rights in connection with any registration statement filed pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement.

 

The January 2024 SPA includes provisions in which the Issuer agreed to submit to its stockholders, in connection with its 2024 annual meeting of stockholders, (i) a proposal to amend its certificate of incorporation to increase the number of authorized Shares by at least a number of Shares sufficient to issue the shares issuable in the April 2024 Private Placement and a concurrent private placement, (ii) a proposal to authorize the Board of Directors of the Issuer to implement a reverse stock split of the Shares within a range of between 1-for-10 to 1-for-25, and (iii) a proposal to approve the issuance of shares in the April 2024 Private Placement and a concurrent private placement pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(d) (such proposals, together, the “Proposals”). The closing of the April 2024 Private Placement was conditioned on obtaining stockholder approval of the Proposals. As reported in the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 7, 2024, the Proposals were approved by the Issuer’s stockholders. With respect to the reverse stock split, the Issuer agreed in the January 2024 SPA to implement such reverse stock split within five trading days following the relevant stockholder approval, and the Board approved a reverse stock split of 1-for-20 after receipt of the necessary stockholder approval. In connection with the execution of the January 2024 SPA, the Issuer entered into stockholder support agreements (the “Support Agreements”) with all members of the Board of Directors of the Issuer, as well as certain investors, including Syntone. The Support Agreement entered into by Syntone provided that, among other things, Syntone would vote (or cause to be voted) in favor of the Proposals with all of the voting power associated with the Shares beneficially owned by Syntone.

  

 

 

CUSIP NO: 69012T 305 Page 6 of 7

 

The foregoing descriptions of the January 2024 SPA, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Support Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the January 2024 SPA, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Support Agreement, which are filed as Exhibits 6, 7 and 8 to this Schedule 13D, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.

  

As a result of the transactions described in this Item 3, the Reporting Persons may each be deemed to be the beneficial owner of approximately 11.4% of the outstanding Shares.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 is amended to add disclosure as follows:

 

(a)–(b) As of the date of this filing, Syntone Ventures owns a total of 2,776,867 Shares. Based upon 23,298,495 Shares outstanding immediately following the April 2024 Private Placement, as confirmed by the Issuer, plus 1,071,429 Shares underlying the Warrants, this represents approximately 11.4% of the issued and outstanding Shares pursuant to Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Act.

 

The Manager holds a controlling interest in Syntone and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Syntone Technologies. By virtue of such relationships, the Manger and Syntone Technologies each may be deemed to beneficially own the securities held by Syntone for purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act. This represents approximately 11.4% of the outstanding Shares calculated pursuant to Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act. Accordingly, as of the date hereof, none of the Reporting Persons holds sole voting power or sole dispositive power as to any Shares and each of the Reporting Persons holds shared voting power and shared dispositive power as to 2,776,867 Shares.

 

  (c) Other than the April 2024 Private Placement, no additional transactions in the Shares were effected during the past 60 days by the Reporting Persons.

 

  (d) Not applicable.
