Item 14. Indemnification of directors and officers.

Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”) authorizes a corporation to indemnify its directors and officers against liabilities arising out of actions, suits and proceedings to which they are made or threatened to be made a party by reason of the fact that they have served or are currently serving as a director or officer to a corporation. The indemnity may cover expenses (including attorneys’ fees) judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the director or officer in connection with any such action, suit or proceeding. Section 145 permits corporations to pay expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by directors and officers in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding. In addition, Section 145 provides that a corporation has the power to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of its directors and officers against any liability asserted against them and incurred by them in their capacity as a director or officer, or arising out of their status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify the director or officer against such liability under Section 145.

We have adopted provisions in our certificate of incorporation to be in effect upon the completion of this offering and bylaws to be in effect upon the effectiveness of this registration statement that limit or eliminate the personal liability of our directors to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, as it now exists or may in the future be amended. Consequently, a director will not be personally liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages or breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability for:

 

   

any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders;

 

   

any act or omission not in good faith or that involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

 

   

any unlawful payments related to dividends or unlawful stock purchases, redemptions or other distributions; or

 

   

any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

 

II-1


These limitations of liability do not alter director liability under the federal securities laws and do not affect the availability of equitable remedies such as an injunction or rescission.

In addition, our bylaws provide that:

 

   

we will indemnify our directors, officers and, in the discretion of our board of directors, certain employees to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, as it now exists or may in the future be amended; and

 

   

we will advance reasonable expenses, including attorneys’ fees, to our directors and, in the discretion of our board of directors, to our officers and certain employees, in connection with legal proceedings relating to their service for or on behalf of us, subject to limited exceptions.

We have entered into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and intend to enter into such agreements with our executive officers. These agreements provide that we will indemnify each of our directors, our executive officers and, at times, their affiliates to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law. We will advance expenses, including attorneys’ fees (but excluding judgments, fines and settlement amounts), to each indemnified director, executive officer or affiliate in connection with any proceeding in which indemnification is available and we will indemnify our directors and officers for any action or proceeding arising out of that person’s services as a director or officer brought on behalf of us or in furtherance of our rights. Additionally, certain of our directors or officers may have certain rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses or insurance provided by their affiliates or other third parties, which indemnification relates to and might apply to the same proceedings arising out of such director’s or officer’s services as a director referenced herein. Nonetheless, we have agreed in the indemnification agreements that our obligations to those same directors or officers are primary and any obligation of such affiliates or other third parties to advance expenses or to provide indemnification for the expenses or liabilities incurred by those directors are secondary.

We also maintain general liability insurance which covers certain liabilities of our directors and officers arising out of claims based on acts or omissions in their capacities as directors or officers, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

The underwriting agreement filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this registration statement provides for indemnification of us and our directors and officers by the underwriters against certain liabilities under the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Item 15. Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities

In the three years preceding the filing of this registration statement, we have issued the following securities that were not registered under the Securities Act:

(a) Issuances of Capital Stock

In February 2017, certain investors purchased an aggregate amount of 5,000,000 shares of our Series A preferred stock for approximately $5,000,000 at $1.00 per share.

In June 2017, with subsequent offerings in November 2018, March 2019, August 2019 and January 2020, certain investors purchased an aggregate of 29,972,284 shares of our Series B preferred stock for approximately $64,999,993 at $2.17 per share.

In June 2020, we sold an aggregate of 46,828,167 shares of our Series C preferred stock at a purchase price of $1.6016 per share for an aggregate amount of approximately $75.0 million. In connection with the Series C financing, we issued an additional 6,295,756 shares of Series C preferred stock in exchange for previously issued convertible notes with a face amount of $10.0 million and accrued interest of approximately $83 thousand.

 

II-2


In connection with the Series C financing, the conversion price of the Series B was decreased from $2.16867 to $1.9319 such that the rate at which shares of Series B may be converted into shares of common stock was adjusted from 1:1 to 1.12256:1.

No underwriters were involved in the foregoing sales of securities. The sales of securities described above were deemed to be exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, including Regulation D and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder, as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering. All of the purchasers in these transactions represented to us in connection with their purchase that they were acquiring the securities for investment and not distribution, that they could bear the risks of the investment and could hold the securities for an indefinite period of time. Such purchasers received written disclosures that the securities had not been registered under the Securities Act and that any resale must be made pursuant to a registration or an available exemption from such registration. All of the foregoing securities are deemed restricted securities for the purposes of the Securities Act.

(b) Grants and Exercises of Stock Options

We have granted stock options to purchase an aggregate of 8,780,670 shares of our common stock, net of forfeitures and cancellations with exercise prices ranging from $0.126 to $0.35 per share, to certain employees, directors and consultants pursuant to the 2015 Stock Incentive Plan. Through the date of filing, 582,292 shares of common stock have been issued upon the exercise of stock options pursuant to the 2015 Plan.

The issuances of the securities described above were deemed to be exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act or Rule 701 promulgated under the Securities Act as transactions pursuant to compensatory benefit plans. The shares of common stock issued upon the exercise of options are deemed to be restricted securities for purposes of the Securities Act.

Financial Statements Schedules:

Item 17. Undertakings.

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act, or the Act, may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is therefore unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or

 

II-4


paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that:

 

  (1)

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a directors, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

  (2)

For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from a form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in the form of prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act, shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.

 

  (3)

For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

  (4)

If the Registrant is subject to Rule 430C, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

ARTICLE 5

FINANCIAL PROVISIONS

5.1    License Fee. Checkmate shall pay to Licensor a one-time, non-refundable license fee of $1 million USD, 50% of the license fee shall be due and payable within 30 days of the Effective Date, and the other 50% shall be due and payable within six months thereafter. In the event of a Change of Control of Checkmate prior to the payment in full of the license fee, any amount of the license fee not already paid shall be immediately due and payable.

5.2    Development Milestones.

5.2.1    In partial consideration of the rights granted by Licensor to Checkmate and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Checkmate shall pay to Licensor a one-time, non-refundable milestone payment within thirty (30) days alter the achievement of each of the following milestones for the first Licensed Compound in a Licensed Compound Series developed and commercialized in the Field.

[***]

5.2.2    Each milestone payment in this Section 5.2 shall be payable only upon the first achievement of such milestone for the first Licensed Product from the same Licensed Compound Series and no amounts shall be due for subsequent or repeated achievements of such milestone in with Licensed Products from such Licensed Compound Series. For purposes of clarity each milestone payment in this Section 5.2 shall be payable only one time irrespective of the number of indications pursued for such Licensed Product in each Licensed Compound Series.

5.2.3    If the first Licensed Product in a Licensed Compound Series is abandoned for any reason prior to the First Commercial Sale and an additional Licensed Product in the same Licensed Compound Series is advanced into clinical development, Checkmate shall resume milestone payments starting at the event subsequent to the last milestone payment that was made with respect to the first Licensed Product in such Licensed Compound Series.

5.2.4    If a development milestone event has been skipped with a Licensed Product in a Licensed Compound Series, and a subsequent development milestone event is achieved with respect to such Licensed Product in such Licensed Compound Series, then the milestone payment for the preceding milestone event shall become due and payable upon the achievement of such subsequent milestone event. For example, in the event that a New Drug Application is filed for a Licensed Product in Series 2 based on data from a Phase 2 clinical trial, the milestone payment for the dosing of the first patient in a Phase 3 clinical trial shall be payable together with the milestone payment clue for the filing of the New Drug Application for such Series 2 Licensed Product.

5.2.5    Reductions for Third Party Milestone Payments. If Checkmate or any of its Affiliates enter into one or more Third Party License Agreements that are required or which Checkmate or any of its Affiliates reasonably believe are necessary to avoid or settle an alleged infringement of such Third Party’s Intellectual Property rights arising from the use, Development, manufacture or sale of a Licensed Compound, Checkmate shall be entitled to deduct from any amount payable to Licensor under Section 5.2 [***] of any amounts paid by Checkmate or such Affiliates pursuant to such Third Party License Agreement(s) in respect of the Licensed Product (or Licensed Compound) which gave rise to the payment obligation under Section 5.2; provided, that in no event shall the foregoing deduction reduce the amount due to Licensor pursuant to Section 5.2 by more than [***].


5.2.6    Change of Control Transaction Milestone. Provided that Checkmate has at least one Licensed Product in Development in either Licensed Compound Series 1 or Licensed Compound Series 2, in the event of a Change of Control of Checkmate during the Term, Checkmate will pay Licensor a one-time, non-refundable transaction milestone equal to the lesser of: [***] of the total valuation placed on Checkmate in such Change of Control transaction(s). The transaction milestone shall be due within 30 days of the closing of the Change of Control transaction (or series of related transactions), may be paid in cash or such freely tradable securities (as the case may be) and shall be creditable against certain development milestones set forth in Section 5.2, as follows: (a) [***] of the transaction milestone is creditable against the development milestones for ‘‘New Drug Application filing with the FDA for regulatory approval in the United States” and (b) [***] of the transaction milestone is creditable against the development milestones for “first MAA filing for regulatory approval in the European Union.” By way of example, if Checkmate had previously made a transaction milestone payment of [***] million and subsequently triggered the milestone payment for an NDA filing in the U.S. with a product from Licensed Compound Series 2, then the base milestone payment of [***] million would be reduced by [***], resulting in a development milestone payment of $[***]. Exempt from this Section 5.2.6 shall be a Change of Control resulting from the sale of shares in one or more venture financing rounds, or a Change of Control resulting from a merger for stock of two private companies. Any further Change or Control of the merged private company will be deemed a Change of Control under this Section 5.2.6.

5.3    Royalty Payments for Licensed Product.

5.3.1    Royalty Rate. As further consideration for the rights granted to Checkmate hereunder, during each applicable Royalty Term, Checkmate shall pay to Licensor a royalty on Net Sales of each Licensed Product in the Territory during each Calendar Year at the following rates:

[***]

For clarity, the calculation of aggregate Net Sales in the leftmost column of the preceding table shall include all Licensed Products, irrespective of the series to which such products belong. Royalties are payable only once with respect to the same unit of Licensed Product.

5.3.2    Royalty-Exclusions and Step-Down.

(a)    If, throughout the Term of this Agreement, there is no Valid Claim of a Licensor Patent Covering a particular Licensed Product in a particular country, then no royalties shall be due for the sale of such Licensed Product in such country.

(b)    If, during the Royalty Term, there is no Valid Claim of a Licensor Patent covering a Licensed Product in a particular country, then, for such country, the royalties payable to Licensor for Net Sales of such Licensed Product in such country shall be reduced by [***] of the applicable royalty rate(s) set forth in Section 5.3.1. For purposes of clarity, no royalties shall be due for Licensed Products not Covered by either a Licensor Patent or Licensor Know-How.


5.3.3    Reductions for Third Party License Agreements. If Checkmate or any of its Affiliates enter into a Third Party License Agreement(s) required to avoid or settle an alleged infringement of such Third Party’ Intellectual Property rights arising from the use, deduct from any amount payable to Licensor under Section 5.3.1 [***] of any amounts paid by Checkmate or such Affiliates pursuant to such Third Party License Agreement(s) in respect of the Licensed Product which gave rise to the payment obligation under Section 5.3.1; provided, that in no event shall the foregoing deduction reduce the amount due to Licensor pursuant to Section 5.3.1 for any Calendar Quarter by more than [***].

5.3.4    Royalties for Additional Licensed Products. The royalty rate applicable to subsequent Licensed Products in a Licensed Compound Series, after the first Licensed Product in a Licensed Compound Series, shall be reduced as follows:

(a)    For Licensed Products in Licensed Compound Series 2, by [***]; and

(b)    For Licensed Products in Licensed Compound Series 3, by [***].

As examples: (i) for the second Licensed Product in Licensed Compound Series 2, the royalty rate for Net Sales of less than [***], and (ii) for the third Licensed Product in Licensed Compound Series 2, [***].

5.3.5    Loss of Market Exclusivity. In the event of a Loss of Market Exclusivity for any Licensed Product in any country, provided that Checkmate has taken and is taking all Commercially Reasonable Efforts available to it to enforce any Patent Rights it may own or control that could prevent relevant sales of a Generic Equivalent in such country, then the royalty rates applicable to Net Sales of such Licensed Product in such country in accordance with Section 5.3 shall be reduced by [***]. Such reduction shall be first applied with respect to such country starting with sales in the Calendar Quarter following the Calendar Quarter in which Loss of Market Exclusivity occurs for such Licensed Product in such country. In no event shall the royalty deductions under Section 5.3.2 and this Section 5.3.5 be cumulative.

5.3.6    Timing of Payment. Royalties payable under this Section 5.3 shall be payable on Net Sales and shall accrue at the time the payment for the sale of Licensed Product is received. Royalty obligations that have accrued during a particular Calendar Quarter shall be paid, on a Calendar Quarter basis, within ninety (90) days after the end of each Calendar Quarter during which the royalty obligation accrued.

5.3.7    Royalty Reports and Records Retention. Within ninety (90) days after the end of each Calendar Quarter during which Licensed Product has been sold, Checkmate shall deliver to Licensor, together with the applicable royalty payment due for such Calendar Quarter, a written report, on a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product and a country-by-country basis, of Net Sales subject to royalty payments for such Calendar Quarter. Such report shall be deemed “Confidential Information” of Checkmate subject to the obligations of ARTICLE 7 of this Agreement. For one year after each sale of Licensed Product occurs, Checkmate shall, and shall ensure that its Affiliates and Sublicensees, keep complete and accurate records of such sale in sufficient detail to confirm the accuracy of the royalty calculations hereunder.


5.4    Mode of Payment and Currency. All payments to Licensor hereunder shall be made by deposit of USD in the requisite amount to such bank account as Licensor may from time to time designate by written notice to Checkmate. With respect to sales not denominated in USD, Checkmate shall convert applicable sales in foreign currency into USD by using the then current and reasonable standard exchange rate methodology applied to its external reporting or other standard practice used for the preparation or its audited financial statements. Based on the resulting sales in USD, the then applicable royalties shall be calculated. The Parties may vary the method of payment set forth herein at any time upon mutual written agreement, and any change shall be consistent with the local Law at the place of payment or remittance.

5.5    Legal Restrictions. If at any time legal restrictions prevent the remittance by Checkmate of all or any part or royalties due on Net Sales in any country, Checkmate shall have the right and option to make such payment either by depositing the amount thereof in local currency to an account in the name of Licensor in a bank or other depository selected by Licensor in such country.

5.6    Audits.

5.6.1    Audits Generally. During the Royalty Term and for one Calendar Year thereafter, and not more than once in each Calendar Year, Checkmate shall permit, and shall cause its Affiliates to permit, an independent certified public accounting firm or nationally recognized standing selected by Licensor, and reasonably acceptable to Checkmate, to have access to and to review, during normal business hours upon reasonable prior written notice, the applicable records of Checkmate and its Affiliates to verify the accuracy of the royalty reports and payments under this ARTICLE 5.
