Item 8.01 Other Events.


On August 4, 2020, SINTX Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional purchasers (the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Company offered to the Purchasers, in a registered direct offering, an aggregate of 3,415,000 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, par value $0.01 per share. The Shares will be sold at a negotiated purchase price of $2.40 per share for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $8.2 million, before deducting fees to the placement agent and other estimated offering expenses payable by the Company. The Shares are being offered by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2019, and was declared effective on April 5, 2019 (File No. 333-230492).


Under the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed not to issue, enter into any agreement to issue or announce the issuance or proposed issuance of any shares of the Company’s common stock or common stock equivalents for a period of ten days from the closing of the offering, other than certain exempt issuances including, but not limited to, securities issued pursuant to the Company’s equity compensation plans.


Maxim Group LLC acted as the sole placement agent for the Company (the “Placement Agent”) on a “reasonable best efforts” basis, in connection with the offering. Pursuant to a Placement Agency Agreement between the Company and the Placement Agent, dated August 4, 2020 (the “Placement Agency Agreement”), the Placement Agent will be entitled to a cash fee of 6.0% of the gross proceeds paid to the Company for the securities and reimbursement of certain out-of-pocket expenses.


The foregoing summaries of the Purchase Agreement and the Placement Agency Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such agreements, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, to this report.


The Placement Agency Agreement and Purchase Agreement are attached hereto as exhibits to provide interested persons with information regarding the sale of the Shares, but are not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Placement Agency Agreement and Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates; were solely for the benefit of the parties thereto; 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 Placement Agency Agreement and Purchase 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 Placement Agency Agreement and Purchase Agreement not in isolation but only in conjunction with the other information about the Company included in reports, statements and other filings made with the SEC.


A copy of the legal opinion and consent of Dorsey & Whitney LLP relating to the legality of the issuance and sale of the Shares in the offering is filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this report.


On August 4, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the pricing of the offering described above, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 99.3 to this report.
