Advaxis, Inc., (OTCBB:ADXS) has entered into a definitive convertible notes purchase agreement (Agreement) with certain accredited investors, for the purchase of the aggregate principal value of approximately $7.1 million of convertible promissory notes for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $6.0 million.

“This financing will support our operations and our Phase II clinical trials in cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia through initial data reporting this Fall,” commented Advaxis Chairman/CEO Thomas A. Moore. “This also keeps us on track to finish GMP manufacture of the prostate and breast cancer versions of our novel immunotherapeutic platform technology.”

The Notes have an original issue discount of 15% and mature on the one year anniversary of the issue date. Under the terms specified therein, the Notes are convertible, in whole or in part, into common stock at a conversion price of $.15. However, except as otherwise provided in the Notes, only 85% of the initial principal amount of each Note is convertible at any time after issuance and the remainder is convertible at maturity.

In connection with the Agreement, the Company issued a warrant to each investor to acquire up to such number of shares of Common Stock equal to 50% of such number of Conversion Shares, issuable upon exercise of the Note, issued to such Investor as of the Closing Date with an exercise price of $0.15. The warrants will expire in three years. Pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement between the Company and the investors, the Company is required to file a resale registration statement within 45 days that covers the resale of the underlying shares of both the Notes and shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants.

Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, a subsidiary of Rodman & Renshaw Capital Group, Inc., (NASDAQ:RODM - News), acted as the exclusive placement agent for the transaction.
