NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTH) ("Hoth" or the "Company"), a patient-focused biopharmaceutical company, today announced the closing of its previously announced registered direct offering, priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules, for the purchase and sale of 1,100,000 shares of its common stock (or common stock equivalents in lieu thereof) at a purchase price of $2.63 per share of common stock (or common stock equivalent in lieu thereof). In addition, in a concurrent private placement, Hoth issued unregistered warrants to purchase up to 1,100,000 shares of its common stock. The warrants have an exercise price of $2.505 per share and are immediately exercisable upon issuance for a period of five years.
H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as the exclusive placement agent for the offering.
The gross proceeds to Hoth from the offering are approximately $2.89 million, before deducting the placement agent's fees and other offering expenses payable by Hoth. Hoth intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general working capital needs.
The shares of common stock (or common stock equivalents in lieu thereof) offered in the registered direct offering (but not the warrants being in the concurrent private placement or the shares of common stock underlying such warrants) were offered by Hoth pursuant to a "shelf" registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-272620) previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on June 13, 2023 and declared effective by the SEC on June 16, 2023. The offering of the shares of common stock (or common stock equivalents in lieu thereof) in the registered direct offering is made only by means of a prospectus, including a prospectus supplement, forming a part of the effective registration statement. A final prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus relating to the registered direct offering was filed with the SEC on September 14, 2023.

Wainwright & Co., LLC at 430 Park Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10022, by phone at (212) 865-5711 or e-mail at [email protected].
The warrants described above were issued in a concurrent private placement under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Regulation D promulgated thereunder and, along with the shares of common stock underlying such warrants, were not registered under the Securities Act, or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the warrants and underlying shares of common stock may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such applicable state securities laws.
