NOTE 7 - STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
On June 22, 2018, the board of directors of the Company approved a 1-for-2.5 reverse stock split of the Company's shares of common stock. The reverse stock split became effective immediately prior to the closing of its initial public offering ("IPO"). All stock amounts included in these financial statements have been adjusted to reflect this reverse stock split.
On June 27, 2018, the Company completed its IPO, selling 4,025,000 shares of common stock at a price of $16.00 per share. Net proceeds to the Company from the offering was approximately $59.2 million after legal and underwriting expenses.
On October 29, 2018, certain selling stockholders conducted a secondary offering of 2,220,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The Company did not sell any shares or receive any proceeds from the sale of the common stock by the selling stockholders.
In fiscal 2018, the Company completed financing transactions with funds and investment vehicles advised by Mistral, Satori, executive management and third-party investors. As part of the transactions, the Company received $21,139,845 in cash (net of issuance costs of $1,325,156) in exchange for a total of 899 Series A, A-1 and A-2 Preferred Units (preferred stock equivalent of 898,600 shares) and warrants to purchase 798,975 shares of common stock, subject to adjustments in the exercise price. The preferred stock carried an annual dividend of 8% compounded and conversion rights dependent upon certain events occurring.
In order to eliminate all outstanding preferred stock upon completion of the IPO, on April 19, 2018, the Company and the majority holders of each of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series A-1 Preferred Stock and the Series A-2 Preferred Stock agreed to amend and restate each series of preferred stock to, among other things, revise the conversion features of the preferred stock to provide that, immediately prior to the closing of an initial public offering, the preferred stock:
(1) will accrue an additional amount of dividends equal to the amount of dividends that would have accrued and accumulated through and including the one-year anniversary of the completion of the initial public offering,
(2) will, along with the aggregate accrued or accumulated and unpaid dividends thereon, automatically convert into shares of common stock at a price per share equal to the lesser of (a) 70% of the offering price, or (b) the applicable calculation set forth pursuant to the terms of their respective certificates of designation.
All outstanding preferred stock totaling $25,645,000, including the additional year of dividends of $2,037,200 and accumulated dividends at 8% through June 29, 2018 of $2,495,704 was converted into 3,287,441 shares of common stock upon completion of the Company's IPO on June 29, 2018. The preferred stock converted to common stock at $9.13 per share resulting in a deemed dividend of $22,601,161 related to the conversion.
COMMON STOCK WARRANTS
In fiscal 2018, the Company completed financing transactions with funds and investment vehicles advised by Mistral, Satori, and executive management in which the Company originally issued 930,054 warrants to purchase common stock subject to adjustments in the exercise price as defined below. In consideration for agreeing to amend the outstanding preferred stock to automatically convert immediately prior to the completion of the IPO, on April 19, 2018, the Company and a majority of the holders of the warrants issued along with the preferred stock, agreed to amend and restate the warrants to replace the aggregate dollar value of each warrant with a fixed number of warrant shares. In order to prevent dilution of the purchase rights granted under the warrants, the exercise price was calculated based on certain factors described in the amendment.
On April 19, 2018, the above warrants were modified, and the Company updated the fair value of the warrants using the assumptions detailed below using a probability-weighted expected return. As the total fair value of the modified warrants was less than the total fair value of the original warrants, there was no financial statement impact on April 19, 2018. The modification resulted in the cancellation of the 930,054 warrants and the reissuance of 798,975 warrants.
On June 29, 2018, the Company completed a Qualified IPO and the exercise price was adjusted to equal the purchase price per share of common stock of $16.00. The Company computed the value of the warrants with the updated assumptions using the Black-Scholes Model, as described below, and recorded the difference between the fair value of the new warrants compared to the old warrants as a deemed dividend of $1,498,079.
There were 281,750 warrants, with a five-year term, issued to Roth Capital Partners, LLC as part of the underwriting agreement in connection with the Company's IPO. These warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes model, and remain outstanding as of February 2, 2020.
In the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company amended and restated warrants totaling 56,077 with a three-year term, valued using the Black-Scholes model. The Company recorded the difference between the fair value of the new warrants compared to the old warrants as a deemed dividend of $408,919. These warrants were exercised in September 2018.
In fiscal 2020, the Company issued 18,166 warrants to a third party in connection with previous equity raise. These warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes model, with similar assumptions to the June 2018 warrants. The warrants had a fair value of approximately $130,000. Of these warrants, 17,396 were exercised on May 14, 2019.
The warrants may be exercised at any time following the date of issuance during the period prior to their expiration date. The fair value of each warrant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes model. Expected volatilities are based on comparable Companies' historical volatility, with consideration of the Company's volatility, which management believes represents the most accurate basis for estimating expected future volatility under the current circumstances. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. treasury yield in effect at the time of the grant.
The following represents warrant activity during fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019:
The majority of the 46,521 warrants exercised in fiscal 2020 were cashless, whereby the holders received less shares of common stock in lieu of a cash payment the Company, which resulted in the issuance of 27,246 common shares.

In June 2019, the Company granted 495,366 Non statutory Stock options to certain officers of the Company with an option price of $38.10 per share. 100% of the stock options are subject to vesting on the first trading day after the date on which the closing price of the Company's stock price has been at least $75 for 60 consecutive trading days so long as this goal has been attained by June 5, 2022 or the options will terminate. These options were valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model to account for the path dependent market conditions that stipulate when and whether or not the options shall vest.
In December 2019, SAC LLC distributed the shares of the Company's common stock it held. In connection with the distribution officers of the Company agreed to exchange and modify options that were held at SAC LLC for shares of vested common stock of the Company. Pursuant to the exchange SAC LLC transferred 175,478 shares of common stock to the Company and the Company immediately cancelled these shares. The Company then issued to the former option holders the number of those shares pursuant to the Plan and withheld 73,507 shares to satisfy taxes associated with the issuance.
