Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On March 26, 2024, Alzamend Neuro, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) entered into with Ault Lending, LLC, a California limited liability company (the “Purchaser”) on January 31, 2024, sold 780 shares of Series B convertible preferred stock (the “Series B Convertible Preferred Stock”), and warrants (the “Series B Warrants”) to purchase 780,000 shares (the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) to the Purchaser, for a purchase price of 780,000. As of March 26, 2024, the Purchaser has purchased an aggregate of 2,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and Series B Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2,000,000 Warrant Shares, for an aggregate purchase price of $2.0 million. The Agreement provides that the Purchaser may purchase up to $6 million of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and Series B Warrants in one or more closings.


The Purchaser is an affiliate of the Company. The material terms of the Agreement, Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and the Series B Warrants were described in the Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 2, 2024 and are incorporated herein by reference.


Item 3.01Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing


As previously reported, on September 26, 2023, the Company was notified by the Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that for the previous 30 consecutive trading days, the minimum Market Value of Listed Securities (“MVLS”) for the Common Stock was below the $35 million minimum MVLS requirement for continued listing on Nasdaq under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(2) (the “MVLS Rule”). In accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(C), the Company was provided 180 calendar days, or until March 25, 2024, to regain compliance with the MVLS Rule.


On March 26, 2024, the Company was notified by Nasdaq that it had not regained compliance with the MVLS Rule. Accordingly, unless the Company requests an appeal of this determination, the Staff has determined that the Common Stock will be scheduled for delisting from The Nasdaq Capital Market and will be suspended at the opening of business on April 4, 2024, and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will remove the Common Stock from listing and registration on Nasdaq.


The Company will request an appeal of the Staff’s determination to a Hearings Panel (the “Panel”), pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5800 Series, which is required to be submitted electronically no later than April 2, 2024. The hearing request will stay the suspension of the Common Stock and the filing of the Form 25-NSE pending the Panel’s decision, and the Common Stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ALZN.” There can be no assurance as to the success or outcome of the appeal to the Panel.


Item 3.02Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


The information contained in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference to this Item 3.02. Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and the Series B Warrants described in this Current Report on Form 8-K were offered and sold to the Purchaser in reliance upon exemption from the registration requirements under Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act of 1933.
