Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.On May 3, 2016, Neuralstem, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Roth Capital Partners, LLC, as the representative of the underwriters identified therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Underwriters in an underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) 20,000,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 20,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”). The Shares and Warrants will be sold together at a price to the public per Share and Warrant of $0.40. The Shares and Warrants are immediately separable. Each Warrant has an initial exercise price of $0.40 per share, will be exercisable immediately upon the date of issuance, and will expire five (5) years from the date of issuance which is expected to be May 6, 2016. The Warrants will not be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market or any other securities exchange.

The Underwriters will purchase one Share and one Warrant from the Company at a combined price of $0.376, representing a 6.0% discount from the public offering price. Roth Capital Partners is acting as sole book-runner for the offering and Brean Capital is acting as co-manager in the offering.

The Company expects to issue and deliver the securities sold in the Offering to the Underwriters against payment therefore on or about May 6, 2016, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The Company expects to receive gross proceeds from the Offering of $8 million and net proceeds of approximately $7,420,000 assuming no exercise of the Warrants and after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses.

The exercise price of the Warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain corporate events, including reclassifications, stock dividends and stock splits. In addition, the exercise price of the Warrants is subject to adjustment in the event of sales of shares of the Company’s common stock at a price per share less than the exercise price per share then in effect (or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for common stock at a conversion price or exercise price less than the exercise price then in effect). In the event of an extraordinary transaction, as described in the Warrants and generally including any merger with or into another entity, sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, tender offer or exchange offer, or reclassification of Common Stock, the Company or any successor entity will pay at the holder’s option, exercisable at any time concurrently with or within 30 days after the consummation of the extraordinary transaction, an amount of cash equal to the value of the Warrant as determined in accordance with the Black Scholes option pricing model and the terms of the Warrants. The terms of the Warrants prohibit a holder from exercising its Warrants if doing so would result in such holder (together with its affiliates and other persons acting as a group) beneficially owning more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock after giving effect to such exercise, provided that, at the election of a holder and notice to the Company, such beneficial ownership limitation shall be 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock after giving effect to such exercise. The Warrants will not be listed on any national securities exchange or any other nationally recognized trading system, and no trading market for the Warrants is expected to develop.

If, a registration statement relating to the issuance of the shares underlying the Warrants is not effective or available, the Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis, where the holder receives the net value of the Warrant in shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares of Common Stock will be issued in connection with the exercise of a warrant. In lieu of a fractional share, the Company will at its election, either pay the holder an amount in cash equal to the fractional amount multiplied by the exercise price or round up to the next whole share.

The Offering is made pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-196567), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 19, 2014. A preliminary prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus relating to the Offering was filed with the SEC on May 2, 2016, and a final prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus relating the Offering will be filed with the SEC on May 4, 2016.
