PART II

 

INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT

 

Item 3.                                  Incorporation of Documents by Reference.

 

The following documents filed with the Commission by the Registrant are hereby incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement:

 

(a)                                               The Registrant’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, filed with the Commission on March 8, 2017;

 

(b)                                               The Registrant’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017, filed with the Commission on May 12, 2017;

 

(c)                                                The Registrant’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on January 10, 2017, January 13, 2017, February 3, 2017, February 10, 2017, February 16, 2017, March 3, 2017, March 22, 2017, March 24, 2017, March 29, 2017, April 11, 2017, April 25, 2017, April 28, 2017, May 5, 2017, May 23, 2017 and May 30, 2017; and

 

(d)                                               The description of the Registrant’s Common Stock contained in the Registration Statement on Form 10 (File No. 001-35312) filed pursuant to Section 12(b) on September 30, 2011 and all amendments thereto.

 

In addition, all documents the Registrant subsequently files pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, after the filing of this Registration Statement and prior to the filing of a post-effective amendment which indicates that all securities offered hereby have been sold or which

deregisters all securities covered hereby then remaining unsold are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement and are a part hereof from the date of filing of such documents.

 

Any statement contained in a document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference herein shall be deemed to be modified or superseded for purposes of this Registration Statement to the extent that a statement contained herein, or in any subsequently filed document, which also is or is deemed to be incorporated by reference herein, modifies or supersedes such prior statement. Any such statement so modified or superseded shall not be deemed, except as so modified or superseded, to constitute part of this Registration Statement.

 

Item 4.                                  Description of Securities.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 5.                                  Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 6.                                  Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

 

The Registrant’s Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended limits the liability of the Registrant’s directors to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law.  Delaware law provides that directors of a corporation will not be personally liable for monetary damages for breach of their fiduciary duties as directors, except for liability for any:

 

·                   breach of their duty of loyalty to the Registrant or the Registrant’s stockholders;

 

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

 

·                   unlawful payment of dividends or redemption of shares as provided in Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law; or

 

·                   transaction from which the directors derived an improper personal benefit.

 

These limitations of liability do not apply to liabilities arising under federal securities laws and do not affect the availability of equitable remedies such as injunctive relief or rescission.

 

The Registrant’s bylaws provide that it will indemnify and advance expenses to its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by law or, if applicable, pursuant to indemnification agreements. The bylaws further provide that the Registrant may choose to indemnify its other employees or agents from time to time. Subject to certain exceptions and procedures, the Registrant’s bylaws also require it to advance to any person who was or is a party, or is threatened to be made a party, to any proceeding by reason of the person’s service as one of the Registrant’s directors or officers all expenses incurred by the person in connection with such proceeding.

 

Section 145(g) of the Delaware General Corporation Law and the Registrant’s bylaws also permit it to secure insurance on behalf of any officer, director, employee or other agent for any liability arising out of his or her actions in connection with their services to us, regardless of whether the Registrant’s bylaws permit indemnification. The Registrant maintains a directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy.

 

The Registrant entered into indemnification agreements with each of its directors and executive officers that provide, in general, that the Registrant will indemnify them to the fullest extent permitted by law in connection with their service to the Registrant or on its behalf and, subject to certain exceptions and procedures, that the Registrant will advance to them all expenses that they incur in connection with any proceeding to which they are, or are threatened to be, a party.

 

2



 

At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving any of the Registrant’s directors or officers as to which indemnification is required or permitted, and the Registrant is not aware of any threatened litigation or proceeding that may result in a claim for indemnification.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities 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 this indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.

 

Item 7.                                  Exemption from Registration Claimed.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 8.                                  Exhibits.

 

The Exhibit Index attached to this Registration Statement is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 9.  Undertakings.

 

(a)                                  The Registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1)                                  To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

 

(i)                                      To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

 

(ii)                                   To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the Registration Statement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective Registration Statement;

 

(iii)                                to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement;

 

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement; and

 

(2)                                  That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment 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 offer thereof.

 

(3)                                  To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(b)                                  The Registrant hereby undertakes that, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act

 

3



 

(and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement 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.

 

(c)                                   Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities 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 Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities 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 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 Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

We have acted as counsel to CHF Solutions, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company” ), in connection with the preparation and filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the Registration Statement” ) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission” ) for the registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act” ), of up to 1,759,426 shares of the Company’s Common Stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the Shares” ), to be issued pursuant to awards under the Company’s 2017 Equity Incentive Plan, 2013 Non-Employee Directors’ Equity Incentive Plan and New-Hire Equity Incentive Plan (collectively, the Plans” ).

 

Based on our examination of such documents and other matters as we deem relevant, we are of the opinion that the Shares, when offered, sold and issued by the Company in accordance with the applicable Plans and the awards thereunder, the Registration Statement and the related Prospectuses, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
