Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On January 23, 2019, Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Common Stock Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (“Wainwright”) with respect to an at the market offering program, under which the Company may, from time to time in its sole discretion, issue and sell through or to Wainwright, acting as agent or principal, up to $10.0 million of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Placement Shares”). The issuance and sale, if any, of the Placement Shares by the Company under the Sales Agreement will be made pursuant to a prospectus supplement to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-3, originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 2, 2018, and declared effective by the SEC on November 14, 2018.


Pursuant to the Sales Agreement, Wainwright may sell the Placement Shares by any method permitted by law deemed to be an “at the market offering” as defined in Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Wainwright will use commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell the Placement Shares from time to time, based upon instructions from the Company (including any price or size limits or other customary parameters or conditions the Company may impose).


The Company will pay Wainwright a commission of 3.0% of the gross sales proceeds of any Placement Shares sold through Wainwright, acting as agent, under the Sales Agreement. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company has agreed to reimburse Wainwright for the documented fees and costs of its legal counsel reasonably incurred in connection with (i) entering into the transactions contemplated by the Sales Agreement in an amount not to exceed $50,000 in the aggregate and (ii) Wainwright’s ongoing diligence, drafting and other filing requirements arising from the transactions contemplated by the Sales Agreement in an amount not to exceed $2,500 in the aggregate per calendar quarter.


The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Placement Shares under the Sales Agreement. The offering of Placement Shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier to occur of (i) the issuance and sale, through Wainwright, of all Placement Shares subject to the Sales Agreement and (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement in accordance with its terms.


The Sales Agreement contains representations, warranties and covenants that are customary for transactions of this type. In addition, the Company has agreed to indemnify Wainwright against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sales Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.


The legal opinion of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP as to the legality of the Placement Shares is being filed as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities discussed herein, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
